So Long and Thanks for all the Fish (via Fihshsticks)

I can’t trust an animal that is more intelligent than the average human (same reason I distrust cats).

Thomas and Friends

Same video, but in much higher resolution and less codec slaughter.

Then I started getting that sick feeling in my stomach — the one where you start to realize how good the Democrats are at losing elections. As much as I dislike the Clintstones, I have to admit that Hillary and Bill would not be letting themselves get bitch-slapped around by the Repubes the way Obama is.

This is an upcoming product that is trying to exist parallel to the Amazon Kindle, but without trying to make itself too big a target for Amazon to crush it. The device doesn’t have a name yet, and so far it looks promising:

  • It’s as big as a sheet of paper

  • Battery time measured in days, not hours

  • Touch sensitive screen

  • Open formats

  • Very thin and light

  • Sturdy screen

If they can pull it off, it will bring competition to the Kindle, even if only in mindshare, which is always a good thing for us consumers.

Some tortures are physical
And some are mental,
But the one that is both
Is dental.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won’t bother you for weeks.

The issue here is that you’re trying to treat the symptom instead of the problem. The symptom is that you guys are tight on money. The problem is that you have too much debt versus income.

They probably won’t get much sympathy from their hard-pressed fans, but America’s stars of stage and screen are being forced to give up one of the traditional benefits of their celebrity status: private jets. The soaring price of aviation fuel, which is now twice the cost of a year ago, is adding tens of thousands of dollars to the cost of a typical flight, prompting members of Hollywood’s √©lite to think the unthinkable and ground their personal Gulfstreams.
