Link-Stained Fingers

Originally there was The Linktank, which I still have a soft spot for. Then I moved over to del.icio.us, but I’ve become really disenchanted with that. So I’ve been gathering up all these links that I haven’t done anything with. Rather than let them decay, I thought I’d share them here. (I know some of them are old; I’ve been storing them for a while now.)

Harry Potter: Introduction to 4th Density?: “So despite what the religious groups may be saying, the Harry Potter series isn’t necessarily about acclimating children to the occult, it’s more about conveying a metaphor for 4th density and the behind-the-scenes reptilian controllers who exist there, continually interacting with and manipulating their 3rd density puppets.”

The Happiest Place on Earth: “We went to Disneyworld today and it’s supposedly the happiest place on earth, it looked more like people were in hell.”

Rube Goldberg winner lights up inefficiency contest: “Teams in the competition, which took place in the Purdue Armory on the university’s West Lafayette, Ind., campus, had to create machines that would replace batteries in a flashlight using a minimum of 20 steps that employed principles of engineering and physics. All of teams used more than the required number of steps, but the winning machine’s 125 were by far the most.”

Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are now species of slime-mold beetles: As I always suspected.

Phone Dial Web Browser: Hello, Internet? Can I please speak to 64.233.161.147?

Search for CD Covers: See what you’re missing by pirating music.

Prank fools US science conference: “Three US boffins built a programme designed to create research papers with random text, charts and diagrams. Two bogus papers were submitted to a computing conference in Florida, and one of them was accepted.”

Video Web Server: Right now, it looks like James and Rob aren’t in the office yet, but someone’s there in Tech Support.

Walmart Watch: Keeping a close eye on an evil empire.

The Music of Supermasterpiece: Go for the “original” version of “Oops, I Did it Again” by Louis Armstrong, stay for the Chess Rap.

Soldiers’ ‘Wish Lists’ Of Detainee Tactics Cited: Long before people were making a fuss over the maltreatment of Korans, a few people made a fuss about the maltreatment of human beings. Remember that?

The Good God Google: “Google Inc., Silicon Valley’s latest garage-to-riches story, is metamorphosing before our collective eyes into the single most important company on the planet, if it hasn’t claimed that title already. And if you haven’t been following its (near) weekly parade of new Web-based software tools, then it’s time you took notice: The Internet … nay, the entire computing experience … nay, the fundamental way in which we access and interact with information, is soon to become radically different.”

Meanwhile, Back at UCB: “I AM JASPER RINE, VERY IMPORTANT PROFESSOR AND VICTIM OF DASTARDLY LAPTOP THEFT”

Microsoft’s New Mantra: ‘It Just Works’: Suuuure it does.

Why Google Is Like Wal-Mart: A comparison by Wired, who’d know.

Limbaugh’s Loose Lips Lead To On-Air Apology: “What the hell is the point of view of young people? Blow jobs, that’s what they’re doing out there. They’re out there getting oral sex all day long, that’s what they’re talking about.”

FLATHEAD: The peculiar genius of Thomas L. Friedman.: “Thomas Friedman in possession of 500 pages of ruminations on the metaphorical theme of flatness would be a very dangerous thing indeed. It would be like letting a chimpanzee loose in the NORAD control room; even the best-case scenario is an image that could keep you awake well into your 50s.”

Huhcorp. We do stuff.: What stuff they do is left as an exercise for the reader.

The Pseudoscience of Intelligent Design: Warning! Uses actual science to disprove ancient mythology!

The Perfect Prescription: “How the pill bottle was remade—sensibly and beautifully.”

War of the Worlds Interior Illustrations: Drawings from different versions of H. G. Wells’ novel.

Alabama Bill Targets ‘Gay’ Books: “Republican Alabama lawmaker Gerald Allen says homosexuality is an unacceptable lifestyle. As CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann reports, under his bill, public school libraries could no longer buy new copies of plays or books by gay authors, or about gay characters.”

The Periodic Table of Haiku: It appears many of them aren’t haiku.

Fleebnork.com: Excellent home-brew Lego models.

The Grand List Of Console Role Playing Game Clichés: “If you’re unsure about what to do next, ask all the townspeople nearby. They will either all strongly urge you to do something, in which case you must immediately go out and do that thing, or else they will all strongly warn you against doing something, in which case you must immediately go out and do that thing.”

Rush to Judgment: We hates the ACLU forever! Until, of course, they’re protecting MY rights…

That’s enough for now. Maybe I’ll do this sort of thing again soon. I have plenty more stored up!
