Oops! I just received a short message that our friend Jameske went out to fight Crime & Injustice, so here I am giving you a quick fix of news in his place:
- Abandoned Space Technology. Sort of like a real-life verion of Watto’s junkyard store.
- Is it possible to assemble a car with glue? I hope the assemblers have better modelling skills than I (Damn you to Hell, Testors!)
- Hamletsaurus? Hefty dinosaurs trampled Denmark.
- Iceland’s Ragnarokkin’ New Opera House is designed to be ‘elf-friendly‘. Will the elves living under that hill work as scalpers?
- Gods, Demons and Imaginary Friends, at Reality Sandwich.
- Comic bio of Jack Parsons, rocket scientist and magician—Now THAT is an awesome resumè!
- And here’s another great webcomic for all you alien-lovin’ fans: Bugsport.
- Greg Bishop discusses the fascinating modern myth of the Black Eyed Kids (BEK), at UFO Mystic.
- Are you a Miyazaki fan? Then surely you must know about the Totoro Forest Project… right??
- The Unraveling of the
BifgootBigfoot Hoax, by Loren Coleman (part 1).
- 7 million-year-old skull was confirmed as first hominid (back in 2002, thanks Loren!), but it’s age is being contested. It’s OK, though! Tom Biscardi is not involved with this one 😉
- Whatever happened to the Rules of Engagement?? Human Rights Watch says both Russia & Georgia used cluster bombs.
- Seems old habits die hard at the Kremlin: Russian police kill anti-government website owner.
- …Is that the US? Scenes from St. Paul at the Republican Convention o_O
Thanks, Kat & Rick
Quote of the Day:
“Materialism is a philosophical position, affirming that nothing exists beyond “matter,” that which we can experience with our senses. I would say that science is methodologically materialist: it can deal only with the world of matter. But it is not philosophically materialist; it does not imply that nothing can exist beyond what we experience with our senses, as religion requires. One can accept scientific principles and also hold religious beliefs.”
