Some News

Egypt cleans trash and dung from around the Great pyramids.  http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/9/40/70311/Heritage/Ancient-Egypt/Giza-Plateau-cleaned-of-garbage-and-dung.aspx Well done, there is still no one willing to visit Egypt because of constant riots.  Good job though.

EU may ban some pesticides for two years: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22335520 Yes! Please do it so we have evidence one way or the other here in the US.  The Bee Colony devastation started when the US started exporting their crap all over the Globe.  It’s only two years…and the US has no balls to do something like this.

I Love Lucy – In Real Color

Probably shot on 8MM.


ISS Water Reclamation

This sounds disgusting, right? But if you think about it, all of the water you drink, every day, has been drunk before. Maybe by a horse, pig, bird or mosquito (in the form of blood). It cam out the other end of whatever drank it, and was recycled by nature. On the ISS, they just speed up the process.


Journalism Continues To Fail

From the Telegraph UK, enlarge it to read the caption.  There is a major lack of editors for online journalism.

It’s understandable…


Atoms For Peace

They sound a lot like Radiohead..


DARPA’s PETMAN

Between this and AP’s twitter being hacked, we should all know the robot wars are not far off. Kidding..


Republicans Block Senate Budget

Ok, wait, after 4 years of bitching that the US Senate has not passed a Budget, Republicans object to Congress actually passing one?????? Madness, Congress is utterly disfunctional.
