Kind of like how you can make yourself look like a giant holding up a building.
Guess I just thought the AP would know better...

Warning: the cat really tears through things, making a lot of these images NMS. Mom, or anyone else that likes birds, don't be clickin.
For cuter cat things, I direct the internet community to watch this [old] video of a cat playing with a mac

"And here's one of us waving!" Thursday, May 24, 2007 | comments
Without being sarcastic at least.
Something the whole GH community is wild about though is that all games come with wireless controllers. As for me, I'm just excited that it's coming to the PS2.
With the Brain Age series of self-improvement games doing so well (even in a non-gaming audience), Ubisoft decided to take it to the next level.
"[My Life coach is] a game that tracks your wellbeing as you progress through monitoring exercises and mini-games to help keep you sharp. The title is designed, first and foremost, as a companion program to help you stay in shape, eat right, sleep well, and have a better overall life experience.[via jake]
The game takes you through a preliminary tracking mode, where you answer truthfully about eating habits, how much exercise you get, when, where, and what you eat, as well as how many hours of sleep you get and exactly when you actually get those hours.
From there the game begins to set goals for you, and you can except these real world wellness challenges by reading through them and simply signing your name on the touch screen."
Ziggurat Con Update Wednesday, May 23, 2007 | comments
Bill Couch linked me TweetVolume, a site that lets you look at what people are talking about on twitter. Even combined together, the Red Wings and the Pistons aren't getting talked about as much as lolcats.
Lolcats are doing well for themselves at 331 tweets, but they're still losing to sleep (13400), work (39300), home (25900), and CSS (2580).
I'd like to also point out that "C++" is beating out "wife" with a score of 15500 to 3570

"It was then that he fell head over heels 'into an emotionally and physically very complex and deep relationship, which lasted for years.' His partner back then was a Hammond organ -- he has now been in a steady relationship with a steam locomotive for several years. Since he is particularly aroused by the inner workings of technical objects, repair jobs have often led to infidelity in the past. 'A love affair could very well begin with a broken radiator,' the now monogamous lover says, remembering how his earlier affairs began."[via boingboing]
"Last month, Washington high school junior Sofia Rubenstein used 6,807 text messages, which, at a rate of 15 cents apiece for most of them, pushed her family's Verizon Wireless bill over $1,100. She and other teens are finding themselves in hot water after their families get blindsided with huge phone bills thanks to hefty a la carte text messaging charges."[via /.]
Anti-grav copter Saturday, May 19, 2007 | comments
The video framerate is perfectly in sync with one revolution of the main rotor. The result: anti-gravity.
And it always goes like this when I get my order:
Employee: Here you go!
E: You need any soy sauce or anything else?
M: Soy sauce, but I'll just use the stuff on the table if you don't mind
E: We have packets of soy sauce.
M: Oh. [pause] Okay.
E: Is that ok?
M: Yeah, that's fine.
I mean what am I supposed say? "NO! MUST HAVE TABLE SOY SAUCE!!" I'm not going to be that much of a pain.
I thought it was just China Gate that did this, but some guy at Evergreen (and I think it was new guy nonetheless) did it to me today.
Is it some sort of cost thing? They give me a huge handful of packets rather than let me use the table stuff, so those packets would have to be pretty cheap to negate the cost of the table stuff. Do they think that I'll spill all over their table?
Other theories? Leave 'em in the comments.
It's easy to be texting champ when you've got a keyboard phone.
Kid Nation on CBS Thursday, May 17, 2007 | comments
NPR did a run-down all of a new fall shows yesterday, and this one certainly sounded the most out of the ordinary. CBS is doing pretty well these days they say and the network decided to use their position to do some more out of the ordinary shows (vs NBC and ABC which are just spinning off the shows they already have)

Give it a shot. NBC.com has the entire season. A good place to start is the pilot episode.

Rapture Letter Deliverin' Business Tuesday, May 8, 2007 | comments
"But you must be thinking to yourself, "How can the letters be delivered after the Rapture?" The answer is simple. The creators of this site are Atheists. That's right, we don't believe in God. How else would we be able to deliver your correspondence after the Rapture?"And if you don't wanna mail a letter, they have Told You So cards, It's Not Too Late cards, and Bibles to send.
If you want immediate delivery, you can pay $800 for a Class III message.
The Class III message is delivered immediately after the Rapture, so expect delivery in as little as one day, depending on the transportation options available to those rejected from the Kingdom of God.
probably only funny if you're on facebook.

"Sitting on an angry chairAny significance? Are his chair and/or walls angry? Or perhaps he's had an upset stomach recently that has yet to phaze him.
Angry walls that steal the air
Stomach hurts and I don’t care"

Got my graduation proof email today from Chappell Graduation and they clearly don't know how set up lights. The photo on the left is ridiculously blown out with a horrible background and the one on the right has that awful shadow that drives photographers mad.
Low low prices!
