Science Fiction or Fact?
For some reason I have often been labeled as a conspiracy theorist. Although I perpetuate obviously false theories for fun, I generally don't think that the bilderbergers, or the owl society are out to get me, yet. Whenever I talk about delegates to the Repugnican party convention though, someone inevitably tells me to break out the tinfoil hat. Now I can those people that if I want to hear the government's encrypted radio transmission, I'll do just that!
The above article is the second in two days that I've seen about Star Wars regarding intellectual property. This story is about the guild that decides what get official sanction and is legally permissable to brand as a star wars product (while the guild collects rent).
The story linked to below is about someone that did not get approval from the Jedi Counsel when makeing Storm Trooper Masks, and the Jedi Counsel made it obvious that there is a light sabre in the room (or blaster).

I read this very interesting article about paranoia in cannabis users. Turns out parts of the brain are activated when cannaboids are in the system, which causes people to be "paranoid." This might also be seen as heigtened awareness.
To me, paranoia is just a finer degree of reality.
I saw this amazing story on yahoo! news. The story details how a group of eight year olds conducted a study on the behavior of bees related to how they see the world.
I got a message via twitter today which states that a Freightliner Diesel vehicle used to haul trailers is ten times as efficient as a Toyota Prius. I actually believe it, but I'm not sure the source is credible.
Here's the link to the article: http://j.mp/bqlz6u
Frightening & fascinating at the same time
Also worth noting that the research for this wasn't government funded
Here is an interesting article in the Missoulian .
Is it possible that technology will save the day with the problem of climate change just as the internal combustion engine solved the problem of what to do with the massive amount of horse manure back at the beginning of the twentieth century?
This is something I never even conceived of before reading this article.
I'll excerpt some of this article to illustrate my point.
This one is also a classic:
Check out the product desciption! lol
Pull over! The traffic police have blocked the road to all vehicles. Wearing realistic uniforms and printed emergency vests, they have set up a roadblock with 4 warning lights and 2 pylons. They are also equipped with a map, stop sign, and pistols.
Saw this over on digg. This is absolutely brilliant. Reporter stands her ground when confronted by grumpy bar patron.
Through technology, market forces circumvent the law. Really neat product.
I don't condone using drugs (not that I am innocent), but this is a really neat product.
