Micky Mouse Club parody
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has created a parody of the Micky Mouse Club song talking about some of the current things happening with our rights.  Definitely worth a quick look.

Keep their attention!
I guess that’s one way to keep a class’s attention… A british math professor decided to surf pornography during an exam.  Only problem was that his computer was still hooked up to the projector! (via BoingBoing)

You bored, too?
And I thought solid water was known as ice… How ‘bout that ever-popular God*Jesus robot? Yes, apparently everything is controlled by the bugs. I got a headache looking at the “world’s smallest website”. Is the Klez virus pissing you off as much as it is …

Need some caffeine in your… soap??
Wow, I think this might be a new low for our society.  You can now go buy a caffeinated bar of soap.  No kidding.  Apparently the caffeine is absorbed through the skin.  Man, that gives a whole new meaning to “wake-up shower”... (via BlogDex) …

Free the Mouse!
"Lessig and Co. have put up a site (designed by Metafilter Matt, no less) to track the comings and goings in the Eldred v. Ashcroft case, where the forces of good and purity face down the copyright absolutists who would keep all of human endeavor …

Got 10 minutes to waste?
If you’ve got about 10 minutes to waste (and a high speed connection) check out this clip from the Conan O’Brien Show.  It has “Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog” talking to people waiting in line for Episode II.  I had to pause it several times …

Gotta do it yourself
Apparently, the old saying is true: “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”  It seems that’s just what Richard Ankrom did when he modified a California Department of Transportation freeway sign.  Nine months and no one noticed…

FOX really scares me
I was watching the last episode of the fantastic series 24 last night and they showed ads for Celebrity Boxing II, which will air tonight.  I mean… Screech?!?!  The only thing that saves the whole night is that there’s also a new episode of The …

Patenting Life
Apparently some biotech companies are trying to skirt around the issue of being able to patent DNA sequences.  Instead, they encode the sequences as MP3s, which are covered by copyright laws for 95 years. Personally, I think it stinks.  It does, however, give a whole …

PHP and images
A new article over on evolt covers the “storage and re-use of images using PHP/GD”.  This should be very useful when used in conjunction with the CMS articles I linked to earlier.

I hereby claim this idea!
Eating dinner with a friend last night I hit upon what we both decided would be a great idea.  Talk had turned to drinking and beer—as it often does with us—and how only a few places served some of the more obscure imports.  So, I …

New features here
Just a couple of quick notes.  First, there’s now a search feature available for the weblog, courtesy of MT-Search.  I can’t get it to work with the main navbar to the right (yet), but searching is functional. Second, the site now makes use of a …

Some people are just dumb
Sometimes I wish natural selection would work more quickly.  We’d sure be better off if we didn’t have so many dumb people around.  (Incidentally, I got my degree at Texas A&M, very near the story.)

Those crazy NASA guys
Ah, the fun those zany NASA guys sometimes have.  I used to want to be an astronaut (not that I’d turn it down now…) myself.  Then I’d get to play with exploding waterballoons in space like these guys.  Okay, so it was just in the …

Episode II… as good as the hype?
Hello, my name is Chris and I’m a Star Wars fan.  I saw Episode II (”Attack of the Clones”... I still don’t like the title that much) last night.  Waited in line quite a while and had excellent seats.  This movie was everything The Phantom …

The things we learn
Theresa over at Making Light has put up an article about how to make… get this… “origami” tampons.  No kidding.  When you think about it, I suppose it’s a really good idea… assuming they work.. which I, of course, can’t test…

Waking Early and Verisign
Had to wake up at the crack of dawn today (before 6am, at least—that’s early for me…) to go to my company’s “User Conference”.  At least it got me out of the office for most of the day… In other news, I figured I’d help …

What happened to Wal-Mart?
So, I used to be a fairly big fan of Wal-Mart—I’d shop there fairly often and it was always good to see a Wal-Mart store in an unfamiliar town.  Heck, one of my good friends is even from Bentonville, the home of the Walton clan.  …

Look ma, customization!
I found an article by David Gagne the other day about customizing your Movable Type blog.  So, I went ahead and did so.  See the icons below?  Yep, that’d be the new thing.
