New Rule: with Bill Maher

New Rule: The next rich person who publicly complains about being vilified by the Obama administration must be publicly vilified by the Obama administration. It's so hard for one person to tell another person what constitutes being "rich", or what tax rate is "too much." But I've done some math that indicates that, considering the hole this country is in, if you are earning more than a million dollars a year and are complaining about a 3.6% tax increase, then you are by definition a greedy asshole.  READ the REST at HuffPo!

The world’s smallest stop-motion animation character: Dot.

Professor Fletcher’s invention of the CellScope, which is a Nokia device with a microscope attachment, was the inspiration for a teeny-tiny film created by Sumo Science at Aardman. It stars a 9mm girl called Dot as she struggles through a microscopic world. All the minuscule detail was shot using CellScope technology and a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics.  SEE THE awesome VIDEO!
and the MAKING of it.(thanks, Nokia!)

Been There, done that.

great post from Brady Bonk, Ketchup is A Vegetable:

Every time I hear one of these TP wackadoodles talk about how we need to lessen the reach of the federal government and how the federal government is only supposed to provide an army or whatnot, I can’t help but wonder what the hell history classes they had growing up. Because one of the first lessons I think you ever learn once you start studying history is that, guess what, buttmunch, this notion of a strictly limited federal government and then the states individually get to decide everything else? WE TRIED THAT ALREADY. IT DIDN’T WORK. READ all about it....(thanks, KIAV!)
