Is this the best Simpsons line ever, from something found on a tape the other night? Lisa: “The mound builders worshiped turtles as well as badgers, snakes, and other animals.” Bart: “Thank god we’ve come to our senses and worship a carpenter who lived 2000 years ago.”
Well, for this lefty atheist, it’s pretty close.
Short on design ideas? DesignBum: Living Today’s Tomorrows has what you’re looking for. Great Illustratory goodness.
It’s headlines like Gallup: More Than Half of Americans Reject Evolution, Back Bible that make me sad not just for America, but for the whole planet. The book’s self-contradictory, for christ’s sake. Anyway, I’m sure you know the real story behind humanity’s beginnings.
I’m sure I could come up with a Second Life version of this funny World of Warcraft Text Adventure. Funny stuff.
Did I mention I’ve got a whole special blog about secondlife? I didn’t? Well there you go.
Second Life is really taking off at the moment. Half as many members as there were a few months ago: up to 150000 and counting. I’ve just joined for $$, so I can “own” “land”. Exciting, hm? Drop by when you can, yes?
In the annals of freaky video games, this stands out, and I’d love to see it played: Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors. Including Desert Bus, an eight-hour real-time drive along a straight road with a right-veering steering wheel. Win and you get one point, then return.
Oh, and continuing the boingboing sources, in a grand series of anagrammed transit maps, Brisbane now has one. Well done Stimpson!
