Let’s Visit the World of the Future is an award-winning 1973 documentary by SubGenius filmmaker Rev. Ivan Stang, which was filmed using Time Control and documents events that happen in the future, such as a war on Mars and a world ruled by Bozos from The Conspiracy, where everyone else is a Wage Slave forced to work 23hours a day. It introduced many new concepts to the world, such asbulldada, and it shows the final victory of the New World Order in taking over Earth using Bozos. You can watch it on YouTube, or go forward a few posts - there’s a link post queued up.

I love Ben Templesmith’s art. Not many comic book artists work in watercolor. He produces such moody, dark stuff. Check out Choker with Ben McCool writing. Good stuff!

What does it look like when you travel near the speed of light? This video tries to show it. I also find Robotgirl’s voice soothing. I like how she says “Terrell rotation.”

Yay! The wine bit, where John Hodgman spilled a bottle of wine on Mrs eJohnstown.

The show was highly entertaining. Turns out, it was educational, too.

Comic Shack #16

I was listening to Comic Shack today. Captain Jim was talking about “Classic Storylines”. I was hoping he’d talk about Spiderman and Kraven’s Last Hunt. I haven’t read that one since it came out. He brought it out as #2.

When I pulled the old comic boxes up from the basement, I found my copies of the story. I hope I have all six parts still.

Physicists Develop Model to Warp Space-Time That Doesn’t Require Entire Mass of Jupiter to Power It

An Alcubierre warp drive would involve a football-shape spacecraft attached to a large ring encircling it. This ring, potentially made of exotic matter, would cause space-time to warp around the starship, creating a region of contracted space in front of it and expanded space behind.

(via Warp drive may be more feasible than thought, scientists say | KurzweilAI)

Everyone keeps forgetting the quote “made of exotic matter”. We don’t have any of that yet. As soon as they show us some negative mass particles, I’ll get excited about FTL.

Called “feathered apes” for their simian like smarts, crows use tools, understand physics, and recognize themselves and humans. But new research suggests that the brainy birds may be even smarter than was previously thought. Given a complex problem and an assortment of tools, New Caledonian crows came up with a creative solution that hints at higher-order thinking.

Ravens can pick locks. Ravens can do simple coding, I actually had a website designed by a team of ravens.

“Sometimes it helps to laugh. But Romney’s smirk is disturbing. It betrays a preternatural sense of entitlement and self-satisfaction that comes out, often inappropriately, in all sorts of ways, from his odd remark that “I like to be able to fire people that provide services to me” to insulting the cookies supporters served him or the rain gear fans wore to a NASCAR event. It seems related to the calm self-importance with which he belittled British planning for the Olympics, insulting our closest ally. The smirk is a cousin to another odd Romney tic – his tendency to chuckle at the wrong time, like when he was trying to deny cutting the hair of a gay high school classmate. Who chuckles when they’re trying to project compassion?”
-Joan Walsh, “Romney’s haunting smirk”

It’s very difficult to not conclude that Romneybot is a sociopath.

Patrick Bateman for President!
