  • Unbelievable: The IDF Has Gamified Its War Blog

    This was pretty much my reaction when I saw the Israeli Defense Force’s blog last night. Unbelievable: The IDF Has Gamified Its War Blog.

  • franklin roosevelt’s second bill of rights

    watched mike moore’s capitalism: a love story last night.  this speech from FDR stuck with me.  in fact, i cried as i was watching it.  what if FDR had been able to enact these propositions?  would sarah palin exist?  would g-dub?  would we be billions of dollars in debt and our entire economy and social structure…

    in 2000, i couldn’t believe that anyone would possibly vote for an idiot like g.w.  determined that my vote wouldn’t make a difference in the election anyway, since there was no chance gore would lose, i gave my vote to the green party in an attempt to help them get 3% of the vote and…
