An Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie (AFDB) is a type of headwear that can shield your brain from most electromagnetic psychotronic mind control carriers. AFDBs are inexpensive (even free if you don’t mind scrounging for thrown-out aluminium foil) and can be constructed by anyone with at least the dexterity of a chimp (maybe bonobo). This cheap and unobtrusive form of mind control protection offers real security to the masses. Not only do they protect against incoming signals, but they also block most forms of brain scanning and mind reading, keeping the secrets in your head truly secret. AFDBs are safe and operate automatically. All you do is make it and wear it and you’re good to go! Plus, AFDBs are stylish and comfortable.
When planes have a problem, analysts can usually figure out what went wrong. They simply check the plane’s “black box,” which records exactly what was happening to the plane at the time.
Now, there’s something similar for people. Under the leadership of Stanford University professor Greg Kovacs and NASA/Ames design engineer Carsten Mundt, researchers have developed a device that is like a black box or flight recorder for human beings.
Just as a plane’s black box records crucial mechanical data, NASA’s device, the CPOD (pronounced “see-pod”), keeps track of biological data, like changes in heart rate, the amount of oxygen in the blood stream, how the wearer is moving … and much more.
A tribute to the Cadbury Creme Egg. Personally, my favorite part of Easter is when the stores start stocking up on these. Yummy.
How it works:
Just type in what you want George to say in the text box. Then choose a pose for George and a background (clicking those links will get you a list of thumbnail-size previews). Then click ‘Go’. A custom George Says comic will be generated for you!
I just used a quote from our oracular leader that he used in Beaverton, Ore., Sep. 25, 2000. You don’t have to make a fool look foolish, they do most of the work for you.

Here is an online petition requesting that Bush declines his party’s nomination. So far they only have 265 signatures. I think they are going to need about 20 more to be effective.
Besides history buffs, not many people seem to remember the Armenian Genocide. Here is a great site dedicated to that great tragedy.
Somewhat surprisingly to many, Armenians and Turks lived in relative harmony in the Ottoman empire for centuries. Armenians were known as the “loyal millet”. During these times, although Armenians were not equal and had to put up with certain special hardships, they were pretty well accepted and there was relatively little violent conflict. Things began to change for a number of reasons. Nationalism, a new force in the world reared its head and made ethnic groupings self-conscious, and the Ottoman Empire began to crumble. It became known as “the sick man of Europe” and the only thing holding it together really was the European powers lack of agreement on how to split it up….
World War one gave the Young Turk government the cover and the excuse to carry out their plan. The plan was simple and its goal was clear. On April 24th 1915, commemorated worldwide by Armenians as Genocide Memorial Day, hundreds of Armenian leaders were murdered in Istanbul after being summoned and gathered. The now leaderless Armenian people were to follow. Across the Ottoman Empire (with the exception of Constantinople and Adana, presumably due to a large foreign presence) the same events transpired from village to village, from province to province.
