Here’s me, making a dung ball of Wikipedia. Yes friends, the future we’ve been wanting is trickling in. Can’t guild the lily on this one so I’m just going to tell you how to get to the awesome. Using any HTML5-ready browser (I used the latest Safari but I imagine Chrome would work too, maybe Firefox 4) navigate to a page you want to roll up into a giant ball and then open a separate tab and navigate to here for instructions: http://ec2-50-17-2-177.compute-1.amazonaws.com/ When they say Address Bar, they mean the part where you put in the URL. Right mouse clicks guide the ever increasing ball and you need to click a lot. Be warned, though, that eventually the music kicks in.
UFO Over Brooklyn?: MyFoxNY.com Seems these aliens can’t get enough of out-of-this world PBR specials as a UFO was spotted over Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Sunday night. It was just late January of 2010 that two UFOs were spotted in Williamsburg, Earth’s reigning capitol for hipsters.
Michael Moore hits on some salient points regarding whether or not we should screw the working class to eke out some money to fill budget gaps. In short, he’s against it. Watch the whole thing, though. It’s better than whatever else you could spend a half hour watching on E! or whatever. Moore was also kind enough to post the text of his speech on his site, if you’re in a hurry. What resonated with me was the statistic Moore cites about 400 Americans having more wealth than 50% of the rest of the country. Just so you don’t have to do that math, that’s .000001% versus 50%. If you’re into analogies, that’s one guy getting half the pizza, and 50,000,000 people splitting the rest. And it’s not like this is secret knowledge. These 400 people aren’t hiding underground in caverns filled with jewels and gold coins, drinking platinum smoothies. […]
In 1977 the Anglica Network canceled a weekly science program utilitarianly called Science Report. The series presented topical science coverage in a familiar format to those who have seen educational programs of the 1970’s (or parody Look Around You). Knowing the last episode would debut April 1, the production crew went out with a bang rather than a whimper. Using the same format and host, the program presented a fantastic tale of conspiracies, shadow governments, kidnapped scientists, secret space colonies, and eminent ecological apocalypse. If that sounds familiar, its because Roland Emmerich and others have ripped this off numerous times however Science Report does this masterfully. It even has a soundtrack by Brian Eno!
