R.I.P. Hunter S. Thompson

Thompson died at his home in Woody Creek, Colorado, on Sunday, February 20, of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This was bat country

Edit: My good friend made this great tribute page.

Dubya's Weird

"...just about every week or so we see another picture of Bush rubbing the head of a bald man."

(Maybe he's just fascinated with the concept that other people actually have brains in there)

The Smoking Scalp?


Even more here!

Which reminds me...

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?

Stupid Computer Tricks

"These images are the result of 8 years in the retail computer industry - 8 years that are thankfully behind me. I used to work in the service department in a retail store of a very famous computer company (think cows...). During this time, I was able to observe (and preserve for posterity) the aftereffects of the - shall we say - "technology challenged" folks. My friends and relatives couldn't believe the stories I told - thus this collection of photos."

Online Shopping is fun!

The comments on this Metafilter post had me laughing till it hurt.

After reading, I had to make this, and snap a photo of it:

Internet Explorer 7 announced today.

Regarding Merg's perceptive comment on this post, here's an interesting article, written by a person with a rudimentary understanding of the current laws...

Penalties of Stealing vs. Infringing

From the makers of Fishy and Bowman, it's Rong 2 (round pong - here's the original Rong)

Fall from the Sky of Tokyo (for some real fun, click "how to play") - a little frustrating at first, but then it's not bad - start at the green arrow; the red is your target.

Here's a flash version of the Periodic Table.

Escher Web Sketch is a Java applet which allows you to draw repeating patterns.

New Links

Again, Woot!

I'm honored to be the newest contributor to newlinks.


Woot! Just got my 50 invites. Anyone needs one, lemme know... Or you can just go here; it's a dumping ground for unused invites - I'll be dumping my leftovers there..

Also, here's an icon generator - smart thing about using this is that humans can read it; spambots just see a .png file...

Click the pic to generate one.


Was out last night, and passed by this giant. It's purported to be the largest Amoco sign in the world, but I can't find proof right now.. It's big, regardless.

Star-Nosed Mole

Shore is purty...

Marsh-dwelling mole gives new meaning to the term 'fast food': "The secret to the star-nosed mole's impressive foraging ability is the star-shaped set of appendages that ring its nose. This fleshy star makes the mole one of the oddest looking members of the mammal kingdom. Despite its distinctive appearance--and the fact that it ranges from Canada, down through the Eastern United States as far as Georgia--people rarely see star-nosed moles because they live only in marshes and wetlands."

"Random Face" is pretty fun.


The Flickr Effect

The possible emerging of a global consciousness, as well as some groundwork for viable artificial intelligence.. Or not. I don't doubt that it's insightful to study mental associations, but I think he's a little overzealous with the implications.
An interesting read, regardless.

Here's some discussion on the matter.

If you're using Internet Explorer, you might notice a small bit of truth at the top of this page... The folks over at newlinks thought it up, and to quote ILuvNUFC, it's "Class Hackage."

Here's the original post.

If you're not using IE, here's what you don't see.

Sign Eating Trees

"Almost thirty years ago in Cambre, a small village in the northwest of Spain, some road signs were placed on trees to indicate that a taxi stand was nearby. Today those signs are almost impossible to see, because they have been almost completely swallowed by tree bark."
