Cheney's got a lady! OOoooOOooooO.... Mr. Vice Prez is being naughty! Wow, she even looks like Lynne!
Dan Flavin plays with light in a show at the Hayward Gallery. Best use of fluorescent tubes since making fake light sabers and eye injuries. Oh, and there's this (yet more Flash Req'd). Shine on, you crazy Monkies!
Vietnam bans booze in karaoke bars in a move to help "in curbing serious social evils". I guess we won't be holding the next MoFi meetup there then.
Curling, curling with desire! (Quicktime direct link) The Swedish national women's curling team do what Swedes do best to promote their team: appear in a deathmetal music video with Hammerfall. It's in English! Here's the Windows Media link, too.
A complete lack of morals. Woman loses camera in Hawaii. Canadien familly finds camera. Woman politely asks for camera back. Family refuses, saying that their 9 year old son loves the camera, and they "can't bear to take it from him."
I find this behaviour on the part of the family to be utterly despicable, and I can't see how they think they are instilling good values in their son--what with promoting stealing and all. I am shocked.
Earth at Night What if you could see Google Maps/Google Earth at night? You can, and at dusk, day, and other options as well. Similar to the last link in this post but more fun because you can navigate the world.
Old pottery recorded sounds (2 minute, >5MB, mp4 video, in French, from the Lire la vidéo link here). Apparently scientists have decoded the grooves on ancient pottery, which acted as crude sound recording, to get a short snippet of the voices and laughter of the potters. Video includes short sample of the sound. Too cool! [via]
