Existentialist Peanuts

God-damned dog.

Bonus: The collected idiocy of the BBC's message boards. You see these people in the street every day.

Oh, and this looks way more scary than when Lance Henriksen did it. (This is the same idea, but somehow less terrifying. Possibly because it isn't trying to simultaneously work out where your fingers are...)

Mostly cool for (Chaos vs. Time)

But also handy.

Oh, also, Face robot. Not that weird until you watch the second video. I'm assuming that white stuff is human skin.

500 points, actually

Well, there was David Hahn who built a nuclear reactor in his shed...

...and the chaps at the university of Chicago who built a breeder reactor for a scavenger hunt. (More detail, from the mouth of the horses)

Scifi on the internets

A Colder War by Stross is pretty good, if the name Cthulu means anything to you. (Incidentally, Stross on why space colonisation isn't wildly practical)

(Even more incidentally, Accelerando is available for legal free download)

Also I quite liked this sequence of short stories;

My first goatse

Flickr photos tagged firstgoatse. (and so forth)

And if you have to ask what goatse is, then JFGI. Say here (but not at work, probably). And experience the 8 phases of goatse.

For obscure reasons, these chaps put the picture on every mac in an Apple shop.

Tell your friends.

Do you think we're the baddies?
