Bush: U.S. on Verge of Energy Breakthrough - Yahoo! News

During a speech on his administration’s energy proposals, Bush declared, “Our nation is on the threshold of new energy technology that I think will startle the American people.” Startle? I can only wonder what kind of revolutionary energy technology is just on the horizon…

  • An endless souce of energy, powered by a) human stupidity b) righteous conservative indignation, or c) liberal outrage.
  • Methane production. There’s an endless supply from Taco Bell burritos and all you can eat buffets.
  • Harness energy from global warming. Oh wait, that doesn’t exist…
  • Millions of tiny hamsters exercising in millions of tiny wheels.
  • You’ve seen those potato clocks? Giant potatoes!
  • People.

Sunday Night Thoughts

I’ve always wanted to play Katamari Damacy, but I don’t have a PS2. Turns out the creators just released an old-school Flash version. The objective, as far as I can tell, is to collect all the objects into a giant ball, starting from the small ones (birds, eggs, cats) to the large ones (people, vehicles). If the ball gets too big, it’ll suck up your king’s head/cursor. (Clicking the mouse will reset the ball.) If anyone knows how to beat this game, let me know.

Why does Adult Swim insist on running the “Boo Boo Goes Wild” special every Sunday night? For a month straight? Seriously, they could stick an episode of Mission Hill or something in there.
