Weapon of Mass Communications (WMC's)

This is someone else's variation of my invention....which is not a stencil but an
actual self-inking stamper that resembles a briefcase.
When you push down on the handle it leaves an imprint on the sidewalk, wall, etc.
The version shown here would be much easier and cheaper to produce, though harder to use if
you don't want to get busted. (thanks, Dweebist!)

Awesome 3D MC Escher tribute!

Tribute to Escher in Barcelona
For all fans of the granddaddy of psychedelia, mind-bending, hyper-perspective craziness, MC Escher, our photographer member Nico Roig has created this amazing “Tribute to Escher” from a computer-generated 3d environment, and then converted it into an interactive spherical panorama. Take a look!

Unemployment Insurance PAID for!

(from Ketchup Is A Vegetable)
Here’s what I don’t understand about what’s not being said regarding the Senate’s asshole behavior on the unemployment extention.

If you work, your employer is required to pay state and federal payroll taxes into unemployment on your behalf. This expense is based on your earnings. These benefits are included as part of your gross income for consideration by the Internal Revenue Service.

We’re not talking about handouts when we’re talking about unemployment insurance. We’re talking about a legitimate benefit that people pay for through their working lives. The Senate is denying people a benefit they’ve already paid for. These assholes are stealing from you. Again. Dig?

Why isn’t anyone saying this, anyway?   (other than thebassguy, that is! thanks, Brady Bonk and KIAV!)

Tanning Tax goes into Effect! World Ends.

OMFG, there's a new tax of 10% on Indoor Tanning sessions!  (oh, the humanity!!)

I wonder if the tax even begins to cover those uninsured tanners who are treated for Melanoma....I can't believe the rightwingnutz are upset over this tax.  Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and current research shows indoor tanners are 74 percent more likely to get it than non-tanners.

And yet Billions-Per-Month-for-War is just fine n dandy.  Oy.
