Highlights: Newsweek's Special Election Project
Topic: Current Events 7:02 pm EST, Nov  5, 2008

"How He Did It, 2008" is an inside, behind-the-scenes account of the presidential election produced by a special team of reporters working for more than a year on an embargoed basis and detached from the weekly magazine and Everything the project team learns is kept confidential until the day after the polls close.

This is a good read. This is the kind of real information I wish was covered instead of the fake front that gets put up during the race.

Barack Obama - He Completes Us
Topic: Current Events 9:08 pm EDT, Sep  3, 2008

The earthly son of a goat herder and an anthropologist, one man seems ready enough-ish to lead.

This is a parody of this Obama biography video. Who doesn't want to elect the lion king?

The Daily Show has been an lolfest lately.

Explosion at Porsche factory halts 911 production
Topic: Current Events 8:09 pm EST, Feb 25, 2008

The German press is reporting this morning that there's been an explosion at Porsche's factory in Stuttgart where the 911 and many of its variants are built. Apparently a furnace used for drying coating sheaths was the source of the boom, which set off the sprinkler systems and ground 911 production to a halt. Reports say production will be down at least 2 - 3 days, which means Porsche could lose about 320 to 480 units of production, not to mention the cost of damage to property. Fortunately, there were no fatalities, but two Porsche workers were hospitalized with injuries. As to why the furnace blew up, the cause is unknown at this time.

UPDATE: Automotive News confirms that the explosion happened at Porsche's spray-painting facility in Zuffenhausen, Germany.

Adrian Lamo Keeps His Blood

Last year, Lamo earned the disapproval of his probation officer in the closing months of his two year probation term when he refused to provide a blood sample for the FBI's DNA database.

He only has to give 8 cheek swabs instead.

"I intend to vigorously comply with the proposed court order," Lamo said in a telephone call Wednesday night. "They've requested eight samples, but I've never been one to do the minimum. I'm willing to give up 16, or 32. Any other power of two that they want."
