In "My parents were awesome."

"David and Merrilee (and unknown)" Bohemian Ma 'n Pa!

In "リワインド"

Cool, I like these simple camera tricks. It reminded me of this PV: Kurumi Enomoto: Kokoro No Katachi PV

In "Look what you can get for a dollar!"

I would have thought that the rag content in US bills would make them less desirable for origami. But, at least it's cheap material! :)

In "Synesthesia."

I'd been thinking about VS Ramachandran and his work on things like Synesthesia recently. He's a dynamic and accessible speaker, so I thought I'd post this youtuberry: V.S. Ramachandran at Beyond Belief 2007.

In "Self-Help Hurts"

You always hurt the one you love.

In "This seems like good news to me."

I would "exercise caution"! :)

In "Tickle me loris"

Here's another video of that cute little critter: Do you want to know more about Sonya? (slow loris - "The Tickle Lover")

In "Robin Hood eat your heart out."

When I was young, I went to the Civil War museum near Gettysburg PA, and they had (at least) one of these, two fused musketballs. Like Dreadnought says, on some of those battlefields there was a heck of a lot of lead in the air.

In "To Die For"

The interpreter Shinji's macabre sense of humor really cracked me up.

In "The Dictionary of Victorian London"

Fascinating. Now I feel a bit peckish for some hot eel.

In "Things are good."

Scratches head... All I see is this error: Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_LNUMBER in /homepages/36/d129676044/htdocs/index.php on line 2 Did it get borked?

In "Curious George: Love Advice"

What the great philosophers have said vis-a-vis love "Love is a slippery eel that bites like hell." -- Bertrand Russell "Love is a perky little elf dancing a merry little jig and then suddenly he turns on you with a miniature machine gun." -- Kierkegaard "Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come." -- Nietzsche (page 1 of Love is Hell, by Matt Groening)

In "We have developed a technology that produces free, clean and constant energy."

Well, at this point, it's all speculation. And they seem fine with that. Very suspicious.

Sure, it's free. It's powered by bullshit, of which they have an endless supply. Their website says nothing. And for all we know, the anonymously registered "" was registered by steorn as a hype multiplier. Now, if they'd actually make a substantive claim ...

In "Crikey! A stingray finishes the job for the crocs"

Very sad. Stingrays are virtually always harmless. There's a tourist dive in the Cayman Islands called Stingray City, where the biggest danger is sunburn and "hickies" from overexcited (from feeding) stingrays. pics.

In "Rumsfeld says Iraq War Critics Are Cowards"

Rumsfeld's gotta lotta fucking nerve criticising other people's morals.

In "Walkenclips,"

Love that Weapon of Choice vid. Walken is the man.

In "Curious Cyber-fashion George"

...self-laundering... Reminds me of an old classic Alec Guinness movie: The Man in the White Suit.

In ""The Special Needs" or "The Needs""

... are the best ... That's a bold statement.

In "Pass the jar please"

Would you rather recharge from a wall outlet?
