Nice Lotus at a local bar.
Maybe I should go pick one up if they're not that pricey.

But we play bad guys, like take uh, The Empire Strikes Back from the Star Wars trilogy. The Death Star - just full of British actors opening doors and going: "Oh, I'm...oh...oh." "What is it, Lieutenant Sebastian?" "It's just the rebels, sir. They're here." "My God, man! Do they want tea?" "No, I think they're after something more than that, sir. I don't know what it is but they've brought a flag." "Damn! That's dashed cunning of them! Ah, Lord Vader'" [hollow breath] "Uh...hello?" Because he was only impressive because he had that James Earl Jones voice: [deep voice] "I'm...I am Vader. The force is strong with you." If he had a much more: [high wimpy voice] "'Ello! Look, I'm Lord Vader and just pay a-bloody-ttention alright? Luke, Luke the force is strong with you." "Is it?" "Yeah." "Well who told you that?" "Uh, s-some bloke. Yeah, he said the force is really rather strong with you." "Well how strong?" "Uh, as strong as a small pony." "Oh, that's quite strong, that is." It wouldn't have worked, would it?wikiquote I don't know if reading Eddie Izzard is as funny if you've never heard it but I get a pretty good chuckle. I'm buying 'Glorious' on iTunes right now. I haven't heard any of it but I'm sure its hilarious.
Beijing Olympic Mascots released.
A Lamborghini Murcielago I saw in london.

I'm waiting for the day people start hooking Elmo into their continuous code testing systems: Elmo thinks you have a fatal error on line 223! Nice going jerk! Hee hee!Having an elmo doll sitting on your desk as a peripheral would just be weird. The Uncanny Valley link he posts is good too, have a read if you're interesting.

Too cool. This research vessel flips up on its end to provide a stable platform to do all kinds of groovy marine research. The squid is photoshopped in... scientists, man, what a wacky bunch.
I know I know. All this bravado, a grand mutiny, one lame post... then nuthin' Well, see, I'm lazy... which is why this is great. Whereas formerly walking the dog meant you burned a few calories yourself, now there's no need. With this fantastic invention your dog walks you. They claim you control steering and braking, but I'm sure you're just a squirrel sighting away from death.
Apparently this is the new Chevy HHR. Saw it this morning and have been trying to forget about it all day. I'm hoping that Chevy's really run by astute satirists who are all having a laugh at us, and we're just missing the joke (Like Starship Troopers, I admit I totally missed the boat on that one.) but sadly I'm guessing GM's serious about this one... why they're forever on the brink of collapse is beyond me.
No, not like in a "There's Something About Mary" kinda way. Nut Prime (as it were) is away, across the pond, incommunicato for the week. Now personally I have better things to do than read blogs all day (I don't)but maybe there's some kid trapped in a closet somewhere and he's rigged an old atari he found to pick up one, just one, website, and this is it (you shoulda picked something with a little more TnA junior, just sayin'), well then its our duty to press on in't it? Well I say it is, and I'm turning off comments for this post so you can just pound sand b*tches.
Yeah, diesel. The Army is loving it cause they've already got tons of that all over the place. Plus you can't hear it from 250 yards away. And 24 flight hours means you can operate 2,000 miles and still make the return flight. You've got to wait till 2006 for the civilian version but the Army and Navy should be getting their's in time for Christmas. Oh, they cost 5 mil a piece.
