World's smallest helicopter

08/31/06
James Bond's got nothing on this

This copter can reach an altitude of 1000 meters (3500 feet) and travel at 60 MPH for 30 minutes (range 30 miles). It only costs $30,000. Definately possible it'll end up on my Buy Me That list.

Barney's Penis traumatizes Ned Flander's daughter

08/29/06
I love you...wanna see?

A girl saw a written reference to Barney's penis in graffiti and now her father thinks she is ruined for life.

Excerpt:

"Since then, she has not stopped mentioning Barney’s p***s. This has shaken the bedrock of our family. I made an emergency call to our church’s pastor about this bombshell in my daughter’s life and he is unsure how it will affect her future."

Grants for majoring in Evolution no longer supported by the US Government

08/29/06
Touched by his noodly appendage

That wacky, influential Christian Taliban is at it again. Apparently, Evolutionary Biology was dropped from the list of majors that low income college students could declare and still qualify for federal grants. Although it was claimed that it was a clerical error...it still hasn't been fixed. Wonder if it won't get re-added until sometime in mid-September when most college deadlines for declaring majors have passed...

Scientists are cloning cows to make better steak. I think it would be a great thing if they were able to just grow the meat without the cow. That way the animal lovers wouldn't have anything to complain about...well...except the fact that cows and chickens and pigs would go extinct.

The MA State Police don't like it when you video tape arrests, either

08/25/06
The video below is actually pretty dumb. It is a video of the arrest of some guy who probably threatened to kill someone at a bar the night before (he is charged with "Threat to commit a crime"...which itself begs the question if I were to threaten to threaten to kill someone, would I be in violation?).

What makes this blog-worthy is the fact that a cease and desist order was obtained by the MA State Police to stop the video from being spread over the net (they also threatened websites for just LINKING to the original). As far as I can tell, the police in the video were polite and professional so they should be proud of this footage. But apparently they have something to hide. I guess the only people allowed to video tape cops would be the cameramen from "COPS."

Everyone voting = Dumb-ocracy?

08/23/06
I actually believe that everyone should be forced to vote. Not through fines but through tax incentives. Here's how:

1. Raise local, state, and federal taxes by 1% across the board.
2. When you vote, you get some sort of form or certificate in the mail that certifies that you voted.
3. Include that form with your tax forms.
4. BAM. 1% tax write off for your local, state and federal taxes.

You still don't have to vote but it would pay off in the end. Steve Colbert disagrees...

So there ARE quotas for traffic violations

Please blow into the breathalyzer

I found this article about how the cops over in PA get bonuses for writing tickets. Here is an excerpt:

Pennsylvania State Police documents show that not only is there a system of monetary reward and punishment for state troopers based upon numeric ticket goals, there is a clear effort to prevent anyone from ever speaking about it. The first rule of a ticket quota is: there is no ticket quota.

Locals come to the foot of the mountain during weddings believing it will bring them goodness and fortune.

Doesn't sound like a bid deal. It happens all the time with shareware after the trial is over (the trial period is the contracted time for the free software to work). The only difference here is that the software was controlling an automated garage and as a result, many, many cars were locked in place until the city paid up. Bully for software developers!
