Chuck Norris for President

Oh, and here’s a little fact to help the cause:

Chuck Norris is widely predicted to be first black president. If you’re thinking to yourself, “But Chuck Norris isn’t black”, then you are dead wrong. And stop being a racist.

Google acquires Jotspot

Another move by Google to acquire all the world’s information, they have offically acquired Jotspot, from their FAQ:

JotSpot, a privately held company headquartered in Palo Alto, California, is the first application wiki company. Founded in 2004 by Excite.com co-founders Joe Kraus and Graham Spencer, the company is pioneering do-it-yourself application publishing to enable anyone to create, publish, and share collaborative and personalized wiki applications.

Just like the Measuremap acquistation of last winter, i expect to never be able to sign up for a new acount, but thats ok, i dont know if i’m interested in this service yet.

Electromagnetic Spacelauncher

I first heard of this technology some time ago, probably when i was in elemetary school, and i thought that it was perfect.  The idea behind it is this, set up a mag-lev like track miles long in the desert which accelerates a ship up to the speeds needed to reach space.  This would be far cheaper, and less polutant then the current methods.

However, this new one uses not miles of miles of track, but a 2km diameter ring of track on which the ship would circle until it attained 10km/s then it would go through a switch to a vertical/angled section, and be launched into space.

Very nice alternative, until you remember that little thing called centripetal force, which at those speeds is enough to kill any human basically.  However, what humans can’t do, thermo-nuclear devices can do, and we all know that space is the final frontier, and what better way to begin exploring it again, but to pave the way with weapons of mas destruction.  Besides, its also another life goal of mine to see a nuclear explosion in space, and now that i have that great insurance, i can see it!

sweet, my week just got so much better!

Fullcontact Tetris

Ok, not really, but sorta.

You don’t use a normal keypad/joypad/button to play this version of Tetris, you pull some chains in a pitiful attempt to get gamers to exercise.

iTunes Jukebox

Correct me if i’m wrong, but, i thought that this was what the iPod was for.

Anyway…some guy created a nice Jukebox thing where party guests insert special modified CD Jewel cases into a tower, which recognizes them, and imports them into the current playlist on iTunes, and plays them.  Its a cool concept, but seriesly, this is what the iPod is for.

Cell phone replacement

Does seeing that instantly make you think about what you’d do with your cell phone if you were there?

Well, read through your Cell phone insurance fine print, maybe you’ll see this:

L. Any Loss or damage caused by or through or in consequence, directly or indirectly, of Nuclear Hazard, meaning any weapon employing atomic fission or fusion; or nuclear reaction or radiation or radioactive contamination from any other cause; but we will pay for direct physical Loss caused by resulting fire, if the fire would be covered under this Certificate.

That’s from coverage by Asurion.

I just want to say, thanks, now i can fulfill a life goal of mine, and then call maria and tell her that i fulfilled one of them with the new cell phone i’m getting cause my old one got totally and completly raped by the nuke i just saw, but hey, 1 life goal down!
