I scored as a non-dyke, though. I find it interesting that my main result is the one man in the bunch (maybe gender is that significant!). Which Dyke to Watch Out For Are You? created with QuizFarm.com You scored as Stuart You are Stuart, partner and co-parent with bi-dyke Sparrow. You believe that values need … Read more
I received an e-mail the other day of news about They Might Be Giants, including this link to a video for the song “Shadow Government”, which is on their new album.Â A pretty neat video, IMHO. The animation style in the TMBG piece reminded me of a video that I saw a few years back … Read more
Another online quiz, this one to determine how nerdy one is, and in what ways. I didn’t score as highly as I thought I would. One neat thing I liked about this quiz is that it has more than 2 options for answering the gender question. 🙂
I find it hard to improve on that headline. It sounds like the plot of a goofy comedy movie from the ’60’s, but it is apparently true. The story can be found here. I especially love the part about nobody noticing.
Courtesy of my friend Kevin’s blog, I discovered the site of a board game about the war on terror.Â In fact, it’s called War on Terror, the Boardgame, in which you either fight terror, or support it, or both. No, I’m not making this up. To some people (who are not me), this may at … Read more

I’ve added two new blog links to the sidebar, and you can tell they’re men of distinction, because they’re both named Sean. Sean Pronay is a friend from Cincinnati, who I met through a local Dennis Kucinich group during the 2004 election. In addition to sharing many of my political perspectives, he also is a … Read more
So it seems that DARPA is interested in making cyborgs. Animal cyborgs, at least – both flying and swimming ones – to gather intelligence in otherwise hard to reach places. I have to confess, I find this almost as cool as I find it scary. Cybernetic organisms have only been in the realm of science … Read more
What? You think it’s Roman Polanski, or Krzysztof Kieslowski, or perhaps Agnieszka Holland? No, no, it’s movie posters. Some of these are really wild and inventive. Some are just hilarious for their apparent misrepresentation of a movie’s genre. Thanks to Kevin H. for pointing me to the site.
Went to Philadelphia this past weekend, and took in the Bodyworlds exhibit at the Franklin Institute. It was extremely fascinating. Seeing real human internal anatomy in person was well worth the admission price, especially since one’s only other option would be going to med school (the only other legal option, anyway). In addition to seeing … Read more
