The narrator is British he has to be right. Actually this sums up everything very nicely and not in an extreme way.

I am almost at a loss for words for how eloquently Jacob Bronowski presents his thoughts. "We have to touch people".

I also found this quite beautiful. Perhaps there are still free thinkers among us and in the media, who would have thought.

Man arrested, cuffed after using $2 bills

A man trying to pay a fee using $2 bills was arrested, handcuffed and taken to jail after clerks at a Best Buy store questioned the currency's legitimacy and called police. Lol.

Ahhh, Compassion

"I think the reason so many people are open to hearing about Jesus in the World of Warcraft is because the majority of people who play the game are lonely kids who don't have any friends. I doubt any of them play sports so you can pretty much guess that there are lots of gay boys and fat little pale-faced Wiccan girls on the servers who hate themselves and escape into virtual characters so they don't have to deal with their pathetic lives" Says Billy Houston, a Landover Baptist Senior High youth.

If thats not compassion as Jesus taught then I don't know what is. It's 4:45am and I am in no mood to even approach this subject... as much as I want to. Maybe an email to the church tomorrow though. Ill let you know how it goes. Please for your own good, read the article though.

They're here...

So I've been following the rumors for the past month+. At first it seemed like only a far off hope. Then Apple announced an... announcement on the 7th just as the rumors had said. Soon images of possible new iMacs popped up everywhere on the internet. All of which ended up being fake... yet very sexy in their own ways. Until today when Apple released the new iMacs , a year after the last revision (i think its been a year); along with updates to .mac and iLife. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the black border, but after seeing more official pictures and the specs I am looking forward to owning, and making love to one. If only Leopard would come out now I would buy one tomorrow.

5am edit: After looking at more videos and pictures I'm slowly starting to like the new iMacs. There is still something about them that upsets me esthetically. Apple knows how to write software, they know how to build computers and more importantly they know how to make it all look good. Did you know the dimensions of the iPod are pretty damn close to the golden ratio? Yet with this newest incarnation of their consumer flagship computer the iMac, they seemed to have fumbled if only slightly. Tomorrow I will go and check one out in person, but from all the pictures Ive seen I'm going to say I can make an educated assessment of the iMac, from a visual stand point.

Visually the brushed aluminum of the past Powerbooks (i own one and its pretty), Macbook Pros, Cinema displays, Mac Mini and Mac Pros is very appealing to the eye. It gives a clean, upscale not plasticy and therefore cheap look. And it holds up to scratches... dents are another thing. Regardless Apple hit it big with wrapping their computers in good old AI [aluminum]. And they almost got it right again with the new iMacs. But what in gods name were they thinking with that black border around the monitor? Ive heard people saying it gives a little bit of "pop" to the screen, which I can understand. With the Mac Mini the mixture of white plastic and aluminum seemed to have worked. The white didn't contrast with the gray of the aluminum as the black does so strikingly with the new iMacs. Or maybe it's just the ratio of aluminum to black plastic that makes it slightly less appealing. The behind of the new iMac is prettier than its facade. With a larger ratio of black to the silver lining of aluminum around the border, a bold clean look is presented in the back. I feel if Apple would just pull down the black to cover the silver chin of the iMac it would look more 10x more appealing. We will just have to see how consumers approach this glass and aluminum generation of iMacs.

"Disclosure is at hand. It is very close"

This is old footage, but interesting never the less.

Maybe it's the nerd in me, or maybe I would just like to see belief structures crumble from the truth of it. What would you do if the US government released a statement disclosing evidence of extra-terrestrials that they've had for so long?
