Axial tilt is the reason for the season.

I have discovered, and love, Lehmans. You have to see it, really, they have lots of non-electrical stuff, camping gear, natural cleaners. I found a soap I wanted there for my sons breakouts. It worked like a charm and their other stuff is cool too.

Also, this stuff can be somewhat pricey but I really like the products. Soapscum

A candy store practically in my neighborhood. The kids and I love their ice cream shop/ factory, they have a giant chocolate castle.

Warning: it takes a while to load.

This is one of my favourite places to shop. Although I think this site has been beautifully put together, it doesn't quite do the store justice. The actual store is a 1930s/1940s Colonial Chinese style department store in Central, Hong Kong. It sells wonderful silks, stylish clothes (modern with a Chinese-style twist, both off the rack and tailor made) and homewares, bath type products (e.g. candles in fragrences such as gingerlilly).

Now let's see if it worked ...

I got DH a GPS for Christmas, and yesterday we went and found two caches in Berkeley. It is literally finding buried treasure, and chances are there's one very close to you. There are caches hidden in 156 countries, and the last time I checked they numbered around 135,000. As of today there are 1400 within 100 miles of downtown SF.

Very, very cool game that takes you to interesting places.

Sheep go to heaven. Goats go to hell.

If you guys liked The Cog, you'd all love The Way Things Go, which is a 30 minute film of the same sort.

It was shot on 16mm, I believe, and so they had to use 3 or 4 spools of film to shoot the entire sequence using two cameras. So there are 3 or 4 edits, but it is totally fascinating. I imagine any kid from toddlerhood on would be into it also.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

I was using this piece for class, and realized that not everyone may have seen it. Great read, if you've never heard of it before. The kind to print out.

It has three outstanding analogies, and the conversation between the station-wagon buyer and the yurt-dwelling tank volunteer is a classic.

It started as a joke. But WBNS 10-TV General Manager Tom Griesdorn says it ended up on air. He says anchorwoman Angela Pace was recording a public service announcement when she jokingly made an inappropriate gesture. He says through a series of mistakes, it ended up on the air in the 10 p.m. hour during the primetime program "Without a Trace." Channel 10 management will continue to investigate how it happened.

Another thread had links to Art Frahm's "Panty's Falling Down" art on James Lilek's site. I looked around and found this interesting site about pinup art.

This guy thought that "the ideal pin-up was a fifteen-year-old face on a twenty-year-old body, so he combined the two," which I think explains a lot.

>None of them would be on death row or executed had they not killed people in brutal, senseless ways.

Not none of them Lori. Only if you believe justice is infallible, which, it's not.

The number of innocent people on death row is an issue of some debate. However, even stalwart supporters of the death penalty will concede that there are -- and probably always will be -- innocent men on death row.

One anti-death-penalty website says:

>1. Since 1900, over 400 innocent people have been convicted of capital crimes they did not commit.
>2. Since 1973, about 85 people have been released from death row with evidence of their innocence.
>3. Researchers Radelet & Bedau have found 23 cases since 1900 where innocent people were executed (In Spite of Innocence, Northeastern University Press, 1992).
>4.The number of innocent defendants released from death row has been steadily increasing over recent years. Between 1973 and October, 1993, there was an average of 2.5 innocent defendants released. Since then, the average has increased to 4.6 released per year.

You can read more on this topic here.

I just wanted to point out that they're not all guilty.

terrilynn, thanks, that is most excellent! Did you notice how, if you haven't moved the mouse in a little while, moving it up near the cat's head provokes her to paw at it, but if you keep moving it, she doesn't paw at it again?

hilarious auction on ebay

Link probably won't last long, so check it out soon.

Snip from the description:

Let me begin by explaining some very important details, this way I do not get 100's of silly emails asking me to photograph the hind end of some stuffed animals. I DO NOT KNOW crap about these things. This belonged to my ex-wife who had about a 1000 of these Beanie Babies and when she moved, this one box of these got left behind, and now I am selling the goofy little things. Whatever money I make from them will be spent at the local Home Depot on tools and other cool stuff.

Info added later:

Okay all you people with nothing better to do! ENOUGH WITH THE EMAILS! I thought I was clear with all that. Here is an Email that I just got from some lady who felt she will try to save my sould or something! Read Below:

(email to seller)Very clever listing; however it is very likely you have some fakes (counterfeits) among the listing and I suggest you pull them from the auctions until you have them authenticated. Humphrey the camel is an example. It is a requirement of eBay as well as unde the provisions of the U.S. Criminal Cpode that a seller know the authenticity of a trademarked item s/he is selling. Also, an authenticated rare beanie will bring lots of money on the auctions. I'll let you know the others that are likely fakes, and further it is very unlikely your ex would have left behind these rare ones. If she had 1000 beanies, she knew what she had and their value. To sell counterfeits of a trademarked item wold make you a common criminal. Are you being honest? If so, cancel the auction, relist the common beanies, and send the rest for authentication. It would be well worth it financially and would make you honest. Taisha

seller's answer, in big bold font: WELL TAISHA! I don't CARE! I told everyone in the begining everything I know and don't know about these STUPID animals! I ahve an idea for all people that are so worried about this.....DON't BID! I dont care! I am so upset that this clown of a woman figured out my SUPER PLAN TO SCAM MILLIONS FROM THE UNKNOWING BEANIE WORLD! I FIGURED I WOULD RETIRE FROM THIS RUSE! What a dolt she is! I have blocked her from my bidder list, that way she can cry about it. Some people are UNREAL! GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have met the enemy and he is us.

Far out, I finally found JessicaP's post from 04-17-2003.

Matt the Electrician is an old pal of mine as well. That same reviewer that Jessica quoted, also called him criminally undiscovered. Matt's good stuff. He got a review recently in the Christian Science Monitor, of all places. But for music geeks, he's been well reviewed by Amplifier, No Depression and Performing Songwriter.

One of my favorite quotes was the writer who compared Matt to a young Paul Simon wrapped around a Tom Waits heart. If anyone wants a recommendation of what album to get, his new one, Made for Working is similar to his first album (folkish americana pop), but is more polished. That's a good place to start. If you like more of a power pop sound, I recommend Home.

I like it, but I like making them for real better. I wish I could easily describe the way to fold paper in order to cut a true 6-way symmetrical snowflake. It's my only real holiday tradition. Mom used to buy us rolls of foil wrapping paper and we would use little tiny manicure scissors to cut out dozens of intricate snowflakes to tape up to the windows. I still do it every year, though I usually don't get around to the windows.

Jennifer Government

The site is apparently overrun with juveniles, but it looks interesting at first glance.

I started a country and here's its description:

UN Category: Corporate Police State
Civil Rights: Some
Political Freedoms: Outlawed
The Republic of [redacted] is a small, devout nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14 million are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving industries.
The streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, bicyclists are banned from major roads, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is a major problem.
[Redacted] is ranked 43rd [out of 46] in the region and 88,486th in the world for Most Liberal Nations.

Sounds like Campo would be right at home.

You're Pale Fire!
by Vladimir Nabokov
You're really into poetry and the interpretation thereof. Along the road of life, you have had several identity crises which make it very unclear who you are, let alone how to interpret poetry. You probably came from a foreign country, but then again you seem foreign to everyone in ways unrelated to immigration. Most people think you're quite funny, but maybe you're just sick. Talking to you ends up being much like playing a round of the popular board game Clue.

You're Ulysses!
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but comparedto what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people dounderstand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at oncebrilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking inthe sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings youadditional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

Wise, old, and athletic, you used to be a big star, but now you've faded a bit into relative obscurity.  While no one would go so far as to call you a ruin, you're definitely past your prime.  You really would rather spend the day on a small island or a small boat than doing just about anything else.  Though watching the games, whatever sorts of games they may be, is also appealing.  Whatever you are, you're Greek to me.

That reminds me of a book (Eureka Street in the interest of Check This Out) which had a minor character who was always trying to get rich quick. One of his schemes was to offer a "Giant Dildo" in the classifieds. Not actually having a stock of giant dildos, he would send back a check marked "Giant Dildo Refund," which the customer would be too embarrassed to cash. However, the "free" nature of the anal plug ad is puzzling.

The security seems reasonable, as the access to the file is only through a link that gets emailed to the recipient. One of the people behind this is a friend of mine; his technical skills are more than solid and so far I've seen no bugs.

Manhattan as Stonehenge

Today, if it is clear, Manhattan will flood dramatically with sunlight just as the Sun sets precisely on the centerline of every street. Usually, the tall buildings that line the gridded streets of New York City's tallest borough will hide the setting Sun. This effect makes Manhattan a type of modern Stonehenge, although only aligned to about 30 degrees east of north. Were Manhattan's road grid perfectly aligned to east and west, today's effect would occur on the Vernal and Autumnal Equinox, March 21 and September 21, the only two days that the Sun rises and sets due east and west.

America has always needed strong leaders, and as you know, we are lucky enough today to have one of the strongest back with us. Now more than ever, our country needs the wisdom, courage and pride that defined the presidency of the man I am about to introduce to you. And, so, ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present my new nominee for the Vice Presidency of the United States: Zombie Reagan!

Baldwinization Centers of America

Baldwinization™ is the surgical procedure pioneered by myself which results in the patient's perfect resemblance of the Baldwin brother of their choice. People sometimes ask me, "Clive, why have you made it your life's work to make ordinary, hard working people look like one of the Baldwin brothers?" My answer is always the same. "Because I care for and love all humanity and believe that the key to true happiness lies in the supple, sultry lips and the seductive eyes of America's First Family of Acting™".
Whether you want to look like Alec in "Hunt For Red October" or Daniel in a straight to video B-movie, we can do it. Why spend another day as an ordinary, average nobody when the key to the glamour and beauty is within your grasp?

The American Museum of the Moving Image has a cool collection of presidential campaign commercials from 1952-present in their Living Room Candidate online exhibition.

It includes transcripts as well as the videos.

From a 1952 Stevenson ad --

WOMAN (singing): I'd rather have a man with a hole in his shoe
Than a hole in everything he says.
I'd rather have a man who knows what to do
When he gets to be the Prez.
I love the Gov', the Governor of Illinois.
He is the guy that brings the dove of peace and joy.
When Illinois the GOP double-crossed,
He is the one who told all the crooks, "Get lost."
Adlai, love you madly,
And what you did for your own great state,
You're gonna do for the rest of the 48.
Didn't know much about him before he came.
But now my heart's a ballot that bears his name.
'Cause to listen to what he has to say,
I know that on election day,
We're gonna choose the Gov' that we love.
He is the Gov' nobody can shove.
We'll make the Gov' president of the you, the me and the U.S.A.

Not really something for games & goofiness, as this is a research site, but it didn't really fit elsewhere!

FYI - this site allow you to search only DOD News & Press Resources sort by options such as Date, Size or title or you can search all "military web sites (.mil domains). This includes many defense agencies, unified commands, the military services - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps - and other elements of the defense and military establishments." You can also narrow your search to a specific service. Fortunately is does also seem to search those entities that are .EDU (e.g. NDU and USMA)

Availible since the end of Sepetember, the new DoD search capability opened up at DefenseLINK Search. Instead of leveraging external commercial search services, this first phase will use a DTIC-hosted DoD search engine to search over 100 DoD public web sites. Eventually they hope to index the entire public DoD Domain. (quote pulled from a librarian online community)

It's for real, but that segment never aired.

RUDE RAINBOW?
We're often asked about the so called rude Rainbow, clips of which have been shown on the Channel Four programmes, TV Unzipped and TV Offal. The clip can now be found on the web, without too much effort. Although often introduced as the unaired pilot, this episode was actually specially made by the team at Thames Television. Geoffrey Hayes told us, "The VT department of each ITV company, every Christmas had a competition to enter all the outtakes from their particular companies programme out put, and see which ones were the funniest. But ours wasn’t an outtake, we specially did it. It was specially scripted and we did it and I never saw it! We did it and Thames won it, but what they actually won, I don’t know. But I never saw the video. I can’t remember much about it except for Zippy with a banana." The script was written by the voice of Zippy and George; Roy Skelton

It put me in mind of the '30 animated pornographic clip from the Disney studio, with the hero named Eveready Hardon.

One of the NY TPWers needs to check this out: The Idiotarod.

The Iditarod is the famous long-distance race in which yelping dogs tow a sled across Alaska. Our Idiotarod is pretty much the same thing, except that instead of dogs, it's people, instead of sleds, it's shopping carts, and instead of Alaska it's New York City.
The event happens January 29, 2005. It will start in Brooklyn, run into Manhattan, and end approximately five miles later. Teams of five will race for a cash prize. And glory.

What Tiny Frogs.

examples:

I used to think that stones had feelings, and hated having to stay out in the cold and get rained on. So every time my parents took me outside, I'd collect piles of rocks and only abandon one when I saw another that looked more in need of rescue.
I used to believe that if you blink at the same time as a cartoon character you'd turn into them. When I was three my favorite movie was "The Little Mermaid" and I wanted to turn into Ariel more than anything, so I'd watch it over and over so I'd blink at the same time as she would. No one caught on to this.
I believed that telephone operators were in the telephone poles, and I thought that you had to be really skinny to be a telephone operator.

Lost to the Dark Side.

As far as I know, this is not a parody of academic work.

Either way, it makes me very happy. A sample:

This chapter explores the chronotopic lamination (Bakhtin, 1981; Prior, 1998) of writers' literate activity—the dispersed, fluid chains of places, times, people, and artifacts that come to be tied together in trajectories of literate action along with the ways multiple activity footings are held and managed. Twenty-one academic writers (undergraduates, graduates, and professors) participated in interviews where they were asked to draw and then discuss two representations of their processes in writing a particular piece. To further explore writers' multiple streams of activity and the ways texts mediate that activity, we also asked participants to share drafts, final texts, notes, annotated readings or other material they used in their writing. We focus here on four case studies that illustrate our findings. The interviews showed that the writers' work crossed institutional settings, especially mixing home, community, and discipline, and thus was deeply laminated (multimotivational and multi-mediated). In particular, we found that writers actively engage in what we call ESSP's (environment selecting and structuring practices), which not only lead to their texts but also contribute to the distributed, delicate, and partly intentional management of affect, sense, identity, and consciousness.

Google Maps

I squealed like a little kid when I saw this. I seriously don't know how Google does it; basically every product they come out with is the best in the market while it's still in beta. I also don't know how they do it technically; I would never have thought this was possible in a web browser without a huge download.

The maps are easily legible. They scroll quickly, without waiting for a new page load. (You can click and drag to see other parts of the map, no more clicking on the little arrow and hoping it moves the right amount.)

When you get directions, you can click on a step of the directions and a bubble pops up with a zoomed-in map of the particular intersection. The directions are pretty good, too.

It's integrated with Google Local, so you can search for bookstores (say) in a particular area, near an address, or in the visible portion of the map. Little markers pop up, and the names, phone numbers, and relative locations of the stores show up on the side.

This is the coolest thing I've seen in months. I'm starting to worry about Google taking over the world, but honestly, they do such a good job at everything else, I might not mind.

This is killing me. From Rants & Raves on NYC craigslist:

10 Silly Things About Me.

1. I have a mirror in my shower, people thing it's for shaving (and it is), but it's REALLY for making shampoo horn and monster faces at myself every morning.

2. I have a dent puller suction cup thing I bought to pull a dent on my car, worked great, so now I pull dents out of stranger's cars when they're not looking, I find this quite satisfying.

3. I wear Sponge Bob boxer shorts under my business suit, and NO, I'm not gay.

4. I'm in my forties, but I still listen to music that angry fourteen-year old-boys like, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Static-X, Pantera......REAL LOUD.

5. I send magazine subscriptions (pre-paid) to people to bug them, I figure out the magazine they'd hate the most and that's the one they get. Ebony to my racist friend, BBW to my ex-wife, Playboy to my friend with the super jealous wife.

6. On the weekends, I dress like a bum (torn shorts, baseball hat, Timex watch) and drive my old muscle car. I hit on the most stuck-up women I see, if they reject me, I get a weird pleasure in knowing that I'm really a successful Architect who could buy and sell them. Silly girls.

7. I flirt with little old ladies, not in an overt way, I get a kick out of how randy of a sense of humor most of them have. I think some of them would go for it if I wanted.

8. I have a collection of Hot Wheels and Japanese toys that is worth thousands of dollars.

9. I still eat Cocoa Puffs and watch cartoons in a tent in my living room sometimes.

10. The oldest woman I have ever slept with is 35, I find most women my age boring and controlling, I am single (Duh). I don't look my age, I'm pretty hot. You may think I'm immature, but I'm really happy.

10 More Super Silly Things About Me!

I have 10 more super-silly things about me!

1) I like to impress people with how young I try to make myself seem. I'm in my 40s and desperately want to be in my 20s.

2) I secretly cry myself to sleep.

3) I haven't had sex in a long time. The last chick I slept with was my friend's 15 year old daughter. I paid for her cell phone for a year to keep her quiet.

4) I use 'Just For Men' on my head and chest.

5) I tell people I listen to crap like Slipknot, but what I really like is Yanni.

6) I am secretly a racist and sexist, but it seems easier to impress the ladies when I tell them how "open" I am.

7) I spent a lot of money on a '69 Dodge Charger. I'll be real cool when the Dukes of Hazaard movie comes out.

8) I often tell Orientals how much I like Eastern culture and spirituality.

9) I use self tanning cream.

10) My wife left me because I was caught masturbating to teen and transvestite porn.

I let my 3-1/2-year-old try the Place the State game/quiz mentioned here a few weeks ago. He didn't do as well as most of you guys, but I thought he did pretty well, considering his age. His first try, he got 66% perfect (and many of his misplacements were due to letting go of the mouse too soon--he knew where the state was supposed to go). His second try, he got 74%, with an average error of only 31 miles.

This has been a topic of some contention in recent Gene Weingarten chats.

First, you notice that the girl has bumped her head, and the guys are just concerned with high-fiving each other, ignoring that she had to do the hard part (like Eliza Doolittle after the embassy ball).

Some have suggested it is faked or digitally improved; though technically it is possible. Why, for example, does she have her arms at her sides rather than up, so as not to add to her diameter?

I don't know. I just think it's cool-lookin.

I think there must be kits people are using to build their business websites by plugging words into boilerplate. "Adam" is just doing something odd with it.

Lately I'm really obsessed with Band to Band.

It's a sort of degrees-of-separation based on the whole thing where Such-and-such was in a band with So-and-so who was in a band with What's-his-face.

The highest number of connections is 32--my high score is 21. It's harder than you might think.
