Freeway Blogger Via DailyKos: the anonymous Freeway Blogger has recruited over 1,000 foot soldiers in 48 states to create low-tech, high-visibilty freeway signs to broadcast political protest against the junta- I mean, the administration. A whole slew of blisteringly clever ones reached commuters all over the United States for the hitherto unknown occassion of "National Freeway Free Speech Day" on October 13. more inside
The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers Some wonderful flash cartoons, apparently commissioned by the BBC.
Whistling records Some truly fine pieces of whistling here. Try a couple.
Curious George: T-shirt aging. I am wondering why my T-shirts always start out soft and fashionable, then after a few months they are tough, prone to wrinkles, and embarrassing to be out in. My wife thinks it is a fabric softener / high pH washwater problem, but I've often used softeners. I think it's all the fine fibers being gradually being eroded out in the dryer (thus all the lint). Any idea what is going on, and how to improve a shirt's lifespan (or restore an old shirt)?
Gary Busey, George Bush, and a box of ferrets

Worry us, flurry us, new monkeys: New Monkeys, especially: How did you get here? What attracted you? What do you hope to get out of being here? What do you like about monkeyfilter? What sucks? How can we fix it? Do let it all hang out! Be inventive, raise hell, don't be shy! Tell us who you are and why we old cretins are all WET!
Curious, George - who are we? Before we lost our history, we had several threads where people told us about themselves - a/s/l, what jobs or pets they had, etc. Maybe it's time to update that. more inside

Jon Stewart on tonight's CNN "Crossfire" (96.5 AVI) This video seems to be in demand so I thought I'd host it here for a bit. Definately worth watching.
US Government sends mixed messages about flu vaccine. President Bush wasn't properly briefed on the flu vaccines issue before the third debate, both getting the facts wrong and trying to take credit for something the US didn't do. more inside

Count the Stars (flash, sound) Make mistake by 1 star and you dont get points, but you also dont lose anything. You can count the stars completely wrong 3 times, then the game ends. - 223 for me before I needed a cigarette. I'm sure some visually acute Monkeys can beat that.
Revolution:USA. "We, The People of the Rest of the World, will not get an official say in the appointment of the next Lunatic Representative of Special Interests in the coming US presidential election. And so UK audiovisual pioneers Coldcut have imagined their own way for the multifariously disenchanted American and diasporic publics to take part. Our trusted audiovisual duo are picking up right where they left off with their heroic “Re:volution” single, this time inviting the whole dissenting planet into the mix."
