Some cool stuff. Like what the military is doing with fiber-optic woven material to make vehicles and equipment appear ‘invisible’.

I Want One Of These…

Philippine Pygmy Tarsier - Worlds Smallest Primate
Dude…I want one of these things. I heard about these from a buddy, looked it up, and now I want one…hehehe. These things are dope. They were thought to be extinct for that past 40 years, but have recently been rediscovered (according to my quick search). The Pygmy Tarsier, which is the world’s smallest primate.

Well, I finally got inspired to bust out another reggae themed wallpaper, so here it is. I just finished it a couple of minutes ago…and it’s kinda simple, but the smoke has got a lot goin on in it. Hope everyone digs this one as much as they’ve liked the previous versions. This one is set for the average monitor with a resolution of 1600×1200. Just click the image to see it full sized, then right click it and “save as” or “set as desktop background.”

peace,
zOnker

U.S.A.-Blue States Political Solution…

November 18th, 2008 | Category: Funny/Etc.

Map: 2008 U.S. Election Results (blue states vs. red states)
Dear Red States:

We’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we’re taking the other Blue States with us. In case you aren’t aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all of the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma the slave states, and a few others. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom and Enron. We get Harvard. You get Ole’ Miss. We get 85 percent of two-thirds of the tax revenue; you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition‘s, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms. Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro gay-rights, pro-choice and anti-war, and we’re going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they’re apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don’t care if you don’t show pictures of their children’s caskets coming home.

We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we’re not willing to spend our resources in Bush’s Quagmire.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country’s fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95 percent of America’s quality wines, 90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy bastards believe you are the people with higher morals then we lefties.

Finally, we’re taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.

Peace out,
The Blue States

Movie: Wall-E…

November 18th, 2008 | Category: Movies/TV

Wall-E Movie Poster
Since I didn’t see this one in the theater, I had to wait for the High Definition version to come out before watching. …and after watching this, I’m glad I did. The visuals in this movie are pretty incredible. Pixar has once again outdone themselves. Plus, not only is this a visual pleasure, the storyline is great too. The animators did such a good job of expressing emotions with subtle gestures. All around this is another great animated movie that both adults and children can enjoy side by side. Some of the subtle (or not so subtle) commentary on how we’re treating our planet and where we could be headed, as far as sedentary lifestyles, is great…and scary. In today’s climate of ‘green is good’, this movie definitely takes advantage of some of our greatest fears of how this planet could end up if we don’t do something soon. And with the ever growing amount of ‘news’ regarding obesity, the movie doesn’t pull any punches while making fun of how mankind could end up.
Take my word for it, get the High Definition version of this, crank up your home theater, and enjoy. I’m already looking forward to watching this again.

peace,

Jaws Bus - A Very Cool Image Advertising National Geographic
This has got to be one of the coolest large-scale bus adverstisements I’ve seen. I’m not sure where these actually ran, but it’s too bad it wasn’t near my house. Props to National Geographic on this one.
