Flying Saucer May Yet Take Flight
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:01 am EST, Dec 22, 2003

Citizens of Patuxent River, Maryland, do not be alarmed. When you see a flying saucer overhead sometime in 2007, it will not be a sign of alien attack.

Instead, the strange craft in the skies will mean that the Russians are finally here -- with a little help from the U.S. Navy.

Topic: Science 12:43 am EST, Dec 22, 2003

One of the most important principles of physics, that disorder, or entropy, always increases, has been shown to be untrue.

"Scientists at the Australian National University (ANU) have carried out an experiment involving lasers and microscopic beads that disobeys the so-called Second Law of Thermodynamics, something many scientists had considered impossible."

Either that or they just think Bin Laden's methods are more successful.

In effect, what Bell and others are creating is TiVo for real life. Whatever flows through your perceptual systems can be rewound and queued up for viewing at a later date. Arguing with the barista over whether you specified soy milk in your latte? Trying to determine who actually came up with that brilliant money-saving idea in the staff meeting six months ago? No problem -- just go to the tape!

And we can then yell at people with Alzheimers for not backing up.

Freedom Tower plan for WTC site
Topic: Miscellaneous 11:09 am EST, Dec 19, 2003

A new design for the building complex to replace the World Trade Center has been unveiled in New York.

I still like Vile's World Trade Sphinx idea better. Or a theme park might be fun (World Trade Land). Screw it... What we need is a bullseye.

PowerPoint Makes You Dumb
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:53 pm EST, Dec 18, 2003

In August, the Columbia Accident Investigation Board at NASA released Volume 1 of its report on why the space shuttle crashed. As expected, the ship's foam insulation was the main cause of the disaster. But the board also fingered another unusual culprit: PowerPoint, Microsoft's well-known ''slideware'' program.

As an ex-Kinkos employee, I would have to agree. Power Point is the digital publishing equivalent to Death Metal.

Polymer Snail Crawls Like the Real Thing
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:38 pm EST, Dec 18, 2003

Scientists have developed a vibrating gel that creeps, crawls and slithers just as worms, snails and snakes do. Manoj K. Chaudhury of Lehigh University and his colleagues describe their artificial creepy-crawly--a hydrogel rod made out of the polymer acrylamide and water--in a report published online this week by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Good pets?

The RIAA makes everyone a cypherpunk
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:25 pm EST, Dec 18, 2003

In response to the RIAA's suits, users who want to share music files are adopting tools like WINW and BadBlue, that allow them to create encrypted spaces where they can share files and converse with one another. As a result, all their communications in these spaces, even messages with no more commercial content than "BRITN3Y SUX!!!1!" are hidden from prying eyes. This is not because such messages are sensitive, but rather because once a user starts encrypting messages and files, it's often easier to encrypt everything than to pick and choose. Note that the broadening adoption of encryption is not because users have become libertarians, but because they have become criminals; to a first approximation, every PC owner under the age of 35 is now a felon.

This column may be the most futile of my long career. I am about to plead for Saddam Hussein's life.

I do so not because I have the slightest doubt that he is a killer, responsible for taking the lives of many thousands, but because sparing his life would send a message to the world that judicial death -- so often abused -- is no longer acceptable.

Tom, do you care to weigh in? How do you feel about this case?

they should let him run in their first election. Lets test this democracy we're making...If he loses, then we kill him.

The quote above is from Drudge, but the Kos has all the important details in one place thats easy to find and link to, so he gets the link over Drudge..

The main reason I blog this is to keep track of the places where Bill O'Reilly has been caught in blatant lies, where he would have had to know the truth.

O'Reilly 430,407, Franken 674,024, Hillary 1,084,520..

That's not even in the same ballpark. Not even close. People who have track records of lying should not be put in a position where they gain a reputation as a trusted news source.. A Prime Time news slot got Bill his rep, because it got him out in front of many more people then at any other previous point in his career.

Good job Rupert, you have built a cult-of-personality out of a blatant liar. This is a great disservice to the american people, who you claim to serve in a "fair and balanced" way. Thanks to O'Reilly, we know without a doubt where Fox stands on ethics and journalism versus ratings, otherwise this guy would have been off the air a long time ago.

I don't think I'm making a big deal of this either.. Newscasters that regularly get caught in lies should not be newscasters.

Maybe he's taking the same reality manipulating pills Rush does.
