Book-A-Day (23 Apr 2003 at 15:24)
Some crazy folks are undertaking the book-a-day project, where they want to write a whole book in 12 hours. I guess it's only going to be like 80 pages, but that counts as a book as far as I'm concerned. This, of course, is a rip-off of my album-a-day project, whose site is getting an overhaul pretty soon...

We Love The Iraqi Information Minister (15 Apr 2003 at 20:50)
Here's a great collection of quotes from Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf. He's the guy with all the amazingly optimistic interpretations of Bush's progress into Baghdad. Examples:

"There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!"


"I can say, and I am responsible for what I am saying, that they have started to commit suicide under the walls of Baghdad. We will encourage them to commit more suicides quickly."


"Who are in control, they are not in control of anything - they don't even control themselves!"
(well, I might agree with that one!)


P.S. I, uh, "support the troops!"

Here are a bunch of cool java applets (and similar technology) that do fun graphics stuff. Click on a few, some are better than others..

Dividing and Multiplying by Zero (07 Apr 2003 at 19:48)
I enjoyed this transcript of a ranting lunatic math/physics hobbyist in the Australian Supreme Court. This guy is verbose beyond all reason, and apparently it all comes down to his theory of "two sets of dividing and multiplying by zero." You can also see his home page for some more honest-to-goodness pseudoscience.

Hi Five!! (01 Apr 2003 at 17:25)
Patent for a automatic high-five machine. From the text,

During a televised sporting event, a "high five" is commonly shared between fans to express the joy and excitement of a touchdown, home run, game-winning basket, birdie or other positive occurrence. Unfortunately, as known in the art, a "high five" requires the mutual hand slapping of two participants, wherein a first participant slaps an upraised hand against the elevated hand of a second participant. As such, a solitary fan is unable to perform a "high five" to express excitement during a televised sporting event.

This invention is for "...providing the user with a convenient outlet for the release of excitement."

Cat's Eye View (01 Apr 2003 at 16:45)
Slashdot had a question today about using human eyes as cameras (by connecting to the optic nerve) That I'm pretty sure was intended to be an April Fool's joke. But someone posted this research where they actually did it with a cat and got recognizable results. Wow! Maybe my dream of being able to instantly take pictures of "what I see" without whipping out my camera, focusing, etc. is not too far off...
