Google Suggestion (Beta)

"As you type, Google will offer suggestions. Use the arrow keys to navigate the results." Try "George W. Bush is a". I also liked typing in the names of my family and friends to see how soon it would "guess" their full name.

10000 troops to attack Fallujah

from Plastic:

"Now that the Bush Jr team has what it considers an electoral mandate, the first thing it plans to do is send 10,000 US troops into Fallujah to fight house-to-house. 500-pound bombs are already dropping across the city, along with leaflets urging women and children to leave -- if they're still alive"

Kevin Smith and Degrassi High

In a most unlikely crossover episode Kevin Smith will be making a cameo appearance on Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Though I find watching the show somewhat painful, I might actually tune in to see the famous director.

Jon Stewart Rocks CNN Crossfire's World

Jon Stewart blasted the hosts on CNN's Crossfire for hurting the democratic process instead of helping. He also calls Tucker Carlson a dick.

From Salon.com, Charles Taylor says:

"I've heard people talk about "The Daily Show" as an oasis of sanity, a public service. I couldn't agree more. Stewart's appearance on "Crossfire" was another public service. He went on and acted as if the show's purpose really was to confront tough issues, instead of being the political equivalent of pro wrestling. Given a chance to say absolutely what he thought, Stewart took it. He accomplished what almost never happens on television anymore: He made the dots come alive."

Pirates and Emperors

Check out this "Schoolhouse Rock" style animation about the United States' history of military and economic imperialsism.

From the site:

"This playful but pointed cartoon shows that while Uncle Sam has been an especially bad apple of late, he's following a pattern of bad behavior which goes back decades."

Bush's Mysterious Lump

Did George W. Bush wear a wire during his debate with Senator John Kerry? Salon and a whole lot of bloggers think so. I have to say it doesn't look good for Bush. My real question is why doesn't somebody not on the internet cover this story?

Daily Show Viewers Smarter

Apparently, because I like watching the Daily Show I'm probably more informed about American politics than the average American. Nice.

Put it in Perspective

"View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons."
