The Big Picture (pdf) on National Missile Defense. In the next few months the Canadian Government will have to decide whether they want to support the U.S. National Missile Defense System. So it would be nice to know if it's doomed to fail? or if it's a flawed scheme that can be fixed with some tweaking?. Either way anti-missile technologies have a troubled track record.
Cinematic George - Favorite Under-Rated Movies I know that there have been posts about our favorite films, but since I have been renting a bunch of DVDs of films that I should have seen, but haven't yet from my local video hut, I was wondering if you monkeys have films that you enjoyed, but were underappreciated by the great unwashed. They don't have to be highbrow, just something that you liked and most others didn't, including "guilty pleasures".
A puzzling timewaster - find the text in the images and move through the stages. The first stage or two are easy, but then things start getting tough.
New improvements in augmented reality make it possible to overlay computer-generated images onto your real-world view in realtime. Combine that with some smart tiles that add mobility and some hyper-realistic headphones and you got yourself some sweet virtual reality. Just keep it away from the robots.
MonkeyNewsNetwork In San Francisco, the local zoo is now featuring a cuckolded gorilla named Oscar, who is still a virgin at 23, apparently because he is too nice. (... or maybe because "He's very interested in human males."

Meanwhile, in India, a "serious monkey menace" is terrorizing the city of Delhi-- not only the residents but the government ministries as well. Unfortunately, the plan to send the rhesus monkeys to the state of Madhya Pradesh has hit a roadblock- the local authorities are refusing to accept them. Lack of money and the fear of chaos have hobbled the plan.

Finally, today is the last day of the Year of the Monkey. Tomorrow begins the year of the Rooster. Apparently, that means no more wild-goose chases.
Monkeys pay for sex I was so astonished by this article. It suddenly enlightened me to a magnitude of human behaviour, including my own. *blushes*
The Princess Registry. Know a princessly person? Now you can make her official.
Missed it by that much. The imminent iceberg collision that wasn't. A followup to an earlier post. Looks like the Drygalski Ice Tongue is safe for now and it's business as usual at McMurdo.

"After raiding a few Army camps, two communist guerrillas hid in a forest gorge and fell in love." Resulting in the first gay marriage between communist rebels in the Philippines. (An oddly cute love story a week before Valentine's.)
"NNDB is an intelligence aggregator that tracks the activities of people we have determined to be noteworthy, both living and dead. Superficially, it seems much like a "Who's Who" where a noted person's curriculum vitae is available[...] [...]But it mostly exists to document the connections between people, many of which are not always obvious." It'll be interesting to see how this thing fleshes itself out.
And a heav-diddly-eaven-o to you! more inside
Under Germany's welfare reforms, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take an available job – including in the sex industry – or lose her unemployment benefit.

For this man, ignorance could be bliss... or at least worth $90,000. A Florida man is suing Bank of America for $90k because of a wire-transfer from his account that he never authorized. The transaction was made through BofA's online banking portal, and it seems that the plantiff is claming that a computer virus allowed someone to remotely administrate his machine. His reason for litigation? BofA was negligent and failed to protect him from known risks with online banking. His suit includes "breach of contract, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and deceit, and intentional misrepresentation". more inside
