Curious George: On The Road Howdy doo, monkey types. Me and a buddy are coming up with plans to travel round America from Britain next summer. We're both students, so cost is absolutely at a premium. We're thinking of visiting a few of the big cities: New York, LA, San Francisco, Washington, New Orleans (God hoping), etc, etc. more inside
New York City Walk. From May 2002 - December 2004, Caleb Smith walked every single road in the whole of Manhattan - some 700 miles. He's documented the entire thing on his website, with some great pictures and fascinating trivia. His unaffected love for the city really brings it to life. Plus! Some interactive floaty pens!
Jean Charles de Menezes was shot down in cold blood. The man shot dead by police shortly after the July 21 bombing attempts didn't run away, he didn't leap the ticket barrier, and he wasn't wearing a padded coat. more inside
English as She is Spoke. By far the worst phrasebook in the world.

The next fifteen minutes will destroy you. That's how long it takes to complete this game. But it will utterly destroy the rest of your life. Kinda like Borges' Zahir. Now don't say I never do anything for you.
Conquerous George Okay, so I've decided to take over my back garden and declare it as an independent state. I haven't decided on the name yet; Finnegestan, maybe, or Piss Off. Anyhoo, I was wondering how I'd go about getting my country internationally recognised. I want the whole shebang: tea with Chirac, talks late into the night about drilling rights, discussion about the fishing boundaries in that little pond at the end. Is there someone I need to talk to about this? Some list I need to add my name onto? How do I go about joining the UN? And do I get any additional rights in England as a sovereign of another country, should I decide to sometimes leave mine to get some groceries or something?
Most unusual cards for you to buy. Incredibly awesomely cool.
Turbulence. Probably not how to behave on an aeroplane.

Curious George: Go, my seeker monkeys! Fly! I'm looking for a site I saw on Metafilter ages ago. It was some art project, where some Spanish (I think he was Spanish) guy took loads of headshots of people in different social groups. I've searched and searched but I can't find it. If anyone could help me out, I'd <3 them forever. more inside
