Dubai to get a rotating skyscraper!
Forget the kilometer-high Burj Dubai under construction in the Persian Gulf's fast-growing city-state. A British consortium is building something even wilder, which surely qualifies as the world's largest bona-fide gadget: The Time Residences tower, a solar powered skyscraper that will use the electricity thus generated to rotate through 360 degrees.

Here's the trailer for the new DIE HARD movie.
Given the physical demands of the role and Bruce Willis's
age, there was a pretty good chance he would actually die hard during the filming of this one. He and Stallone are eventually going to be playing these roles with walkers.

Litvinenko's killers used polonium worth $10m to give massive overdose
The article claims, "British investigators believe that Alexander Litvinenko’s killers used more than $10 million of polonium-210 to poison him." Now THAT's a premium "hit."

The Ultimate Guide to the Invisible Web
"Search engines are said to crawl only 16-20% of the Internet ... Danny Sullivan, a search engine expert and formerly of Search Engine Watch, wrote in 2000 that the invisible Web was about 500 times Google's (then) index of one billion pages."

9 Inventions Edison Did Not Make
The article avoids the question of how to properly identify the inventor. Is it the scientific genius who first tames the technology, or is it the practical engineer who determines a method to take the technology to the public? Is it the man who proves that something theretofore considered impossible is possible, or the one who actually makes it possible? Edison was never the former, but he was a genuine wizard at the second, and managed to convince people he was the former as well. Perhaps that ability at self-promotion was his greatest genius.

The article is a bit misleading in one sense. It is common knowledge that Edison did not invent the electric light bulb. In fact, he purchased the patent from some other guys! And even his famous refinements were made by his entire team, so his personal contribution is not quite clear. But his lab was the first to give the technology any practical mass-market application outside a laboratory. If he didn't invent the first light bulb, his team did develop the first light bulb that lasted long enough and was inexpensive enough to have any practical application. If he scored his basket by standing on the shoulders of giants, at least he got the ball through the hoop. In that very real sense, he was the inventor.

The uncensored version of SNL's "Dick in a Box". Excellent comedy piece which required a lot of prep.

The Filthy Critic reviews Charlotte's Web
He liked the film, but his comments about the 1973 version are classic:

"It sort of sucks that today's kids get a crapload better Charlotte's Web movie than my generation did. We got this cheap Hannah-Barbera pile of steaming shit with herky jerky movement, static backgrounds, characters who looked like outcasts from Scooby-Doo, Paul Lynde as a rat and way too many awful, sappy songs. That 1973 movie was so damn bad that even a six-year old getting free popcorn would walk out of it. It represented the absolute minimum level of effort required to make an animated movie."
