A Fistful of Random Junk 

Time to clear out the ol' bookmark file!

Everyone wave at the adorable baby wombat, who appears to be waving to us.

I did an ego search last week and found a link to my treatise on the business model of education, A Profit Without Honors on a page of apparently random links owned by Celebrex, an arthritis drug. (Cue Twilight Zone music.) TPCQ: "I didn't consent for them to put this on TV!"

From the same ego search: The best review I ever got.

This should really go under the TimeWaster™ heading: An In-Depth Anaylsis of the Cultural Ramifications Evidenced in the Powerpuff Girls. Fascinatingly pointless!
methylenedioxymethamphetamine . . . is obviously the "chemical X" refered to in the show. This tells us that one can be "created", and by extension, re-created by drugs. Obviously a statement on karma and the reincarnation evidenced in many belief systems. Note also, the symobolism in the technology used to create the powerpuff girls. It is indeed, (as shown in the intro of every show) a large pot (note also the pun), into which are mixed all the ingredients needed. This tells us that the technology itself is not so important as the outcome, in short, an example of the ends justifying the means. Does this mean that the powerpuff girls would be in favor of, say, human cloning? I realize this is a hot button issue, but the fact remains that they indeed, quite possibly would be.
For commentary, see the title of yesterday's post.

Hey look -- it's a pig riding a skateboard! (TPCQ: "Whatsamatter, Homer? You ain't never seen a naked chick riding a clam before?")

Whatsamatter, you never heard of flying portable toilets crashing into automobiles?

You should definitely check out this online draft registration form. I wanna know how they got the URL.

Peep the test patterns from TV stations around the world. Singapore has to be my fave.

Also very fun -- kids draw their interpretations of common idioms. My fave? Penny for your Thoughts.

Speaking of art, check the Infinite Art. Fractals and then some. I don't care for the ones that are just simple Photoshop filters, but some of the images are quite striking.

Most of you have probably seen that video with Bush and Blair singing to each other. Well, that's Atmo, and they've done some other cool stuff too. Make sure you see "The Voice" on this page.

Thanks to Diane for linking us to Freeway Blogger. Temporary high-exposure roadside political messaging. Sweet.

Great political cartoonists think alike. (Now imagine it in slow motion.)


You want more? Yeesh! Okay, check out this virtual tour of Pere Lachaise cemetery. (C'est en francais, mais tu ne lirais jamias le texte, n'est-ce pas? Regardes vite les photos, et puis envahe un autre nation souveraine. Americains imperialistes!)

Today I'm listening to: Gift of Gab!
