Since everyone seems to be yammering away on this "Prometeus" video (which is actually closer to Prometheus), I have to point out the absurdity of it all. If anyone really thinks we can predict the future of technology, or its influence on society, one need not look any further than the recent past:

"I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won't last out the year."
- The editor in charge of business books for Prentice-Hall, 1957

There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. - President and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977

640K ought to be enough for anybody. - Bill Gates, 1981

'Windows 95 needs at least 8 MB RAM.' - Bill Gates, 1996

 

If those do not convince you, take a listen to a Science Friday Episode from July 7, 2000: "Hour One: Future Computing"....sorry, it's in Real Format. Maybe they thought the format was the "future"...

     Ok...so these idiots are trying to scare us with 300 people? If they are so serious, why would they release a video and TELL us what their "plans" are? Fear, fear and more fear.....don't buy into it.

    Where the fuck is a president like Reagan or FDR when you need them. These people are annoying as ants at a picnic....they should have been dealt with as such looong ago.

    Chipolte is so serious about the integrity of their food and the farms that supply them, they have started to include pictures of the farms with your order. Check out these pix:

    "Not many people know this, but my great grandfather Aloysius "Gorilla" Koford, was also a cartoonist. From 1912-1913 he produced a comic strip which was featured in 17 newspapers, including the Philadephia Star-Democrat, the Tampa Telegraph, and the Santa Fe Good-Newser."

Witness to Power, or One More Reason To Hate LBJ (LeBron James Edition)

Nick Gillespie | June 7, 2007, 10:01am

 Reader John-David Filing points to the sort of stupid battle that federal officials seemingly never tire of fighting (even though there's a war on):

The federal government wants Ohio to take down a giant Cavs sign featuring LeBron James...

Crews posted a huge Nike "We Are All Witnesses" sign on the eastern face of the Sherwin Williams building, but federal officials spotted the sign at a recent convention.

They said it violates a highway beatification act passed during the Johnson Administration.

Maybe the feds are Spurs supporters (or sore Pistons fans). Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland defends the billboard, saying, ""We are determined to do everything to make sure that this city has the opportunity to continue to enjoy this beautiful display of commercial art."

More here.

Hey, hey LBJ, how many billboards did you kill today? At the signing of 1965's Highway Beautification Act, which regulated billboards and other signage on federal roads, the man who dropped tons of napalm on Vietnam recalled a drive home from the hospital on The George Washingtion Parkway:

I saw Nature at its purest. The dogwoods had turned red. The maple leaves were scarlet and gold . . . . And not one foot of it was marred by a single unsightly man-made obstruction--no advertising signs, no junkyards. Well, doctors could prescribe no better medicine for me.

Nature at its purest--except for the road he was driving on.

Crandon versus Voelker

     An article on C|Net illustrates the absurdity and incredulity associated with 'net based crimes.  Here we see a child abuser / pedophile who is actually getting a court to consider his "liberty" in their sentencing.

     Perhaps the childn whom he exposed and exploited should be considered first. I guess their  'liberty' is of little consequence to them.

Shirkly defends Keene?

     "So much of the conversation about the social effects of the Internet has been so upbeat that even when there is an obvious catastrophe ... we talk about it amongst ourselves, but not in public,"

Reminds me of the final act in Animal House and a quote from Kevin Bacon:

"Remain calm.....ALL IS WELL!"
