Sunday Update

| February 28, 2011

When I heard the Capitol was supposed to close down I rushed over to see if I could get in. I was actually prepared to get arrested when they were slated to clear the place. As it turns out, that couldn’t happen, because… well.. too many other people had the same idea. So I hung [...]

Is Even One of America’s Anti-Union Governors Not a Criminal, Druggie, Dropout, Idiot or Fraud?

| February 26, 2011

After an exchange on Twitter last night about Mitch Daniels, I got to thinking: are any of the big name Republican Anti-Union governors who are in the news gunning for union rights not idiots or criminals? So far, the answer is: no! Let’s run down the list, shall we: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker: Dropout, Cheat [...]

So-Called ‘Zombie Defense’ Table Neither Good for Defense Nor as Table

| February 26, 2011

I really can’t see how this ‘Zombie Defense’ table qualifies as a win, consisting as it does of one slanty leg and a small round piece of wood that can be used as a shield. I mean, ok, let’s say you have an assailant in your home. Are you likely to have time to take [...]

Extremely Disturbing Web Game Harnesses Power of Google Maps to Create Smurfpocalypse

| February 26, 2011

A new web game put out by one Mike Lacher uses the power of Google Street View to create its own Zombie Apocalypse… sort of: Enter a location and run from zombies inside street view. Please use Google Chrome (Safari tends to be okay too). This is rather experimental, so please let me know if [...]

Fun fact: when your movie accidentally slipped into the public domain, as did George Romero’s original ‘Night of the Living Dead’, you can’t stop people from remaking it any way they see fit.
