From the Just dang Cool Dept. : Suspicious Looking Device

Suspicious Looking Device 2006

The only function of the Suspicious Looking device is to appear as suspicious as possible, whether carried in hand or placed indiscrimately in public places.

The SLD contains LEDs, a LED array, a character display, an optical distance sensor, capacitive touch sensor, buzzer, and motors.

You know if I wasn' so frickin lazy I would make of those. I mean how cool would that be just annoy the HSA! But now with the new laws you might be made an enemy combatant.

Whats Wrong With This Country

I've been trying to pin down what exactly is wrong with this country. Is it our obsession with Oil? Is it our mis-understanding and therefor hatred of other cultures? Or is it our lack of responsibility when it comes to decision making when it come to our politicians or our local government? Ladies and gentlemen it is all of the above and more. I give you the following:

The mini-fucking ketchup bottle.

Personalized little pieces of glass that are filled with ketchup just for you! GREAT! How absolutely quaint. It really is cute, I was admiring them from afar looking to use one of them on my fries. Funny little aside, I used to be in the military and they used to, and maybe they still do, include little bottles of Tabasco with every MRE. Fan-fucking-tastic! Believe you me, when your out in the field, and it's cold and wet and you are hating life, remembering that you have a little bottle of heat and maybe some crackers to get you through, awesome! Anyway, where was I, oh yeah little bottles of evil. After I got my mini-me-sized bottle of Heinz I asked the waitress what they do with the empty bottles? Do they take them back and ship them back to Heinz central, like Budweiser does, wash them out and re-use those cute little fuckers? "Oh no, we just throw them away" as she points over to a barrel filled with these things.

You have got to be fucking kidding me! Not only is it a waste to throw away perfectly good bottles just waiting to be recycled, but the cost of packaging and the waste of fuel to transport these fuckers across the nation! The lack of efficiency and the absolute waste of resources that this must be to produce this crap just does not make sense in the long-view/world-view.

And I think, nay, I believe that this is why the world hates us. Because we are such fucking pretentious, narrow-minded, selfish prick bastards that we could give a fuck that if what we are doing now in regards to local and world energy and resources is going to have any impact on what happens to us or the rest of the world. We are just oblivious retards that we just move along single-person-to-a-car commute and have these little fucking cute bottles of evil and the world be damned. And that is exactley what we are doing. Damning ourselves and the world. Because we think we are entitled to do what ever the fuck we want to do.

We are like the person that wants to believe that we are doing something good by donating our old clothes, or giving money to our local shelter all the while consuming more than we can produce and importing what we can't.

We are headed for a very bad time my friends... And I am part of the cause.

We are such pretensious fucking assholes.

Cyclopian Child Born in Chennai

From Trailing Technology

A one-eyed child suffering from a rare chromosomal disorder known as cyclopia was born in a hospital in Chennai earlier this week. The disorder occurs during pregnancy when the cells that constitute the forebrain fail to develop properly and fuse into a single eye. Instances of cyclopia are generally attributed to outside factors like ambient pollution, radiation, drugs and the introduction of other agents that can alter fetal development.

The pictures bare an eerie resemblance to images of Love Canal, a suburban community built on top of the most notorious toxic waste dump in New York State. While the small town was still populated, several children were born without eyes and cancer was hundreds of times the normal rate.

With waste burned openly in the streets, old MRI machines leaking radiation into local dumps, red alert toxic ratings for the city's air and water, and now one-eyed infants, Chennai is looking more like Love Canal every day.

Local Blogger Josh Wolf Jailed for Mission Protest Video

First Amendment Trampled. Man put in jail for taping protests!
From violet blue

...The protest got out of hand, as protests sometimes do, and fireworks were set off, and a police officer was hit in the head. But after Josh posted part of the video he shot on his blog, the feds showed up *at his house*, demanding the entire tape and not saying why -- but that because Josh's video contained federal property in it, they had a right to it.

Josh refused, and in his incredible presentation I saw at Vloggercon 2006, explained that he was concerned about the feds' intentions -- worried that they might be indiscriminately compiling antiwar, "terrorist" group lists. Josh is 24, and a friend. So now... shoot a video locally and go to jail? Our lame-duck SFGate has its head stuck up its ass because they're defending the mainstream media with an article the totally sidesteps the story (ha!), but CNet is on it.
