Because one of my lovers put it up. I've been absent for ages, still around, just busy.

As I noted a couple of years ago, they're arming utility 'bots with machine guns. They're putting them into action now.
(Wired story with YouTube video.)

This is not how I want my country to be represented to the world. They could at least put a Smiley Face on the front of it.


Edit- Compare with photoshopped pics from 2004 of Talon bomb-disposal bots with various add-ons:

"The simple answer is that the Republicans are far more competent than the Democrats when it comes to election fraud."
-Slashdot commenter tagged as "funny," on the discussion on investigative reporter Greg Palast's stuff about the whole Gonzales scandal and political election cheating in general.

I might have more thoughts about Greg Palast after I read his book. He's repeatedly publicly claimed to have copies of Karl Rove's 500 lost emails.

Some days I'm the liberal boss trying to be a nice guy, and some days I'm Bartleby the scrivener. Why do we live in a tangle of alienation, stupidity, and buttheadedness?

After the housecleaners have done their work, I have a similar sense of violation as right after getting my teeth cleaned.

I don't deserve to have all the advantages I enjoy while others are suffering and deprived, and why can't I have more?

...And the world remains an entertainingly weird place: Counterfeit Disneyland in Beijing

"Some have claimed that the park is illegally copying Disney’s Minnie Mouse. However, the park’s operators have insisted that the character on the right is not a mouse. It is a cat with very large ears!"

Is it immoral to steal from thieves? How about plundering plunderers? For a while now I've been jokingly predicting that we'll see organized violence or even warfare over "intellectual property." Who owns culture? Mao said reality comes out of the barrel of a gun; maybe so, but what about fantasy?

Black Snake Moan

I went to this frankly expecting to see a kinky art-house flick, like House of Yes, or maybe even Secretary. It was stunning, amazing, and funny; and somehow makes what sounds like an exploitation film spiritually refreshing. Samuel Jackson, Christina Ricci, S. Epatha Merkerson (from Law and Order), and some guy named Timberlake. Best tasteful dramatic use of chain bondage, nudity, sexual content, racism, and nymphomania, ever. No, really. And Samuel L. Jackson plays guitar and sings the blues. This was transcendent, like if Eugene O'Neil, William Faulkner, and Muddy Waters collaborated on a screenplay which was then directed by Jonathan Demme and cinematographed by Ridley Scott back when he was young and hungry. I intend to take people to it as a missionary effort. Both an "important" film and a guilty pleasure. It got almost no advance publicity, I think because they had no idea how to deal with something this intense and honest. It's like an opera, only with blues and writhing on the floor of a shotgun shack. Special guest appearance by Son House, who's been dead for decades.

Astronomers map the invisible Dark Matter. Oooh, spooky.

U. of Edinburgh mad scientist announces Maxwell's Demon.
"Now I want you to separate all the blue molecules from the red ones."
"Yesss, Massterrrr."

And finally,
A George Mason University chemistry professor has won a $1 million engineering prize for developing a simple and inexpensive means of filtering arsenic from well water.
Low tech miracle, woo-hoo! Mason: we have prize winners and our basketball team wins some of the time.

I decided to get on a meme bandwagon, even though I usually don't care for the ones that try to compel participation. The world doesn't need more chain letters and echoes. But this actually engages disused creative muscles and is wildly open ended. Here we go. Lifted from [livejournal.com profile] seborn and various others.

"The first five [Edit: or so] people to respond to this post will get some form of art, by me, that is in some fashion about them. I make no guarantees about quality or type, and it may take some time because I am busy, but I will assure that I will give it good effort and that the art will be individual to you.

The only catch: as with most memes, if you sign up, you have to put this in your own journal as well. Give to receive and all that.

As for you, feel free to respond no matter how much talent you may or may not have! You cannot do worse than me. I have no idea what I am doing, and you may wind up with me singing a song at you, or giving you a haiku, or cookies, or some incomprehensible thing made of pipe-cleaners. Wait, this is not encouraging you at all, is it."

Happy Tranquility Day!



37 years ago today humans walked around on another heavenly body for the first time. It's still mind-blowing.

Okay, slightly old news, but indulge me my excitement.

Cancer stem cells, common to many major forms, found to cause relapses.

"These cells now essentially become Darth Vader ... They were formerly good and absolutely required for our existence, and because of these bad decisions, these genetic mutations that lead to cancer they now become evil. And they are the cells that kill us."

One step closer to eradicating death in our lifetime.

Over 450 different types of queer animals documented.

Sorry, can't call 'em unnatural acts anymore. I'm going to get that book; it sounds like a great coffee-table conversation starter.
