These videos are great.
In the Month of August, 2004, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
2 Kerry Edwards,
1 Regime Change Begins at Home: Vote Out Bush Cheney, and
1 American Flag were stolen from my yard.
I decided to booby trap my one remaining sign. I set up a video camera to find out who was stealing my signs. Three nights in a row, August 28, 29, 30, in the early morning hours, attempts were made.
Oh he has a blog about it too.
Even if you don’t like comics this is interesting.
I found this wonderful thing (scroll down beyond introduction) completely by accident on a very lucky day at an estate sale earlier this year. As far as I can tell this comic book is, forgive me for using this term but it deserves it – unbelievably – unknown. I even showed it to some friends who collect peculiar comics like this and none of them had ever heard of it (and a couple offered, no, demanded I sell it to them on the spot, heh. sorry.) nor could I find any mention of it in books or on the web. So enjoying the idea that this is a discovery, I have posted it here. It’s certainly a very strange time capsule at the very least.
Most of these are bizarre but there are a few good ones.

A few weeks ago somebody found some toys of a plane hitting the World Trade Center. This week the same company apparently is putting out toy cellphones with Osama bin Laden’s picture on it. From WFTV.com:
KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Channel 9 has discovered another controversial toy. A local mother took a closer look at the toy and realized something wasn’t right. It’s a toy cell phone with a picture of Osama bin Laden on it with one word above it, “King.”
The toy cell phone is tiny, only about two and a half inches long, and the picture of bin Laden is even smaller. But it infuriated a Kissimmee mother.
Channel 9 has discovered there is a connection between this toy and another toy we’ve told you about.
The USGS has some amazing but tragic before and after photos of Hurricane Ivan. Mother Nature can be a real bitch when she wants to.
This is pretty cool although one version of it is in German and it took me a few minutes to get AltaVista to translate the page. Then I noticed the little link up to that says “English Version”. Doh.
Pongmechanik is an absolutely physical game. The game is realized electromechanically, and essentially consists of four elements:
A relay computer, the mechanical movement with collision detection, the display and the acoustic components.
