— I'm having a hectic day but on the reasoning that it's better to post something than nothing, this is what I clicked lately in no particular order.
Could this double knock-out possibly be real?
I just told our tech section editors they need to implement Tag Galaxy as the new navigation for their section.
Engobi is a puffed chip-like snack infused with caffeine. I'd like to try it but I don't want to buy a case online. Anyone in the NYC area let me know if you see them on shelves.
That Barack/Hillary Star Wars video, The Empire Strikes Barack. See also The Real McCain for a sense (in case you hadn't already noticed) that the future of campaigning is in cleverly edited amateur video.
Reddit is launching a weekly TV show based on the stories selected by readers. Maybe not a completely new idea but likely worth checking out.
Bacon air freshener - Like the time you forgot the croissandwich in your glove compartment and parked in the sun.
Trailer for Traitor. Looks like another great performance from Don Cheadle.
Print Magazine rounds up a massive collection of view-through-legs cover art.
The Ten Most Important Satellites Orbiting Earth Now - Given the significance of satellites in our lives, doesn't it seem like they should be more celebrated somehow? I guess we don't pay much attention to our power plants or phone lines or anything but for what they do and how they do it and the fact that you can see some of them like they're stars it seems like there could be more public awareness of them.
This was going to be my Commuter Click but I accidentally read the whole thing: An ex-Jack Sparrow spills on life at the Magic Kingdom - On the one hand it's a salacious expose in which he reveals not only the demands of being a Disney employee but the pirate perversions of a striking number of women who visit the park. This kind of reminded me of that former Scientologist's video where he's clearly out of group but still has lingering characteristics of their members.
Actual Commuter Click: The Most Curious Thing - Errol Morris digs into the story behind the story on one particular Abu Ghraib photo. I'm about a quarter of the way through so far and it's really enlightening. It's not a rant against the war or the military, it's (so far) a human level look at how things are there in Iraq.
Jet-Powered Bicycle Makes 50 MPH Feel Waaaaay Too Fast - Holy moly! How does that even stay together!?
Solio is a solar powered battery charger that looks like it was issued by Star Fleet. (Assuming your next question is the same as mine: a hundred bucks.)
8 Types Of Annoying People You'll Find Inside Starbucks - I once nearly literally got in a fist fight with the Starbucks guy at LaGuardia airport for being annoying type #8. I asked for a medium black coffee and he kept saying, "Grande?" And I kept saying, "Medium" because I don't know their damn lingo and I hadn't had any coffee yet that day and airports already make me edgy and this guy clearly spoke English so why was he giving me a hard time pretending he doesn't know what medium is? After going back and forth a few times I seethed, "Whatever your size range is, I want the one in the middle!" He told me to take it easy and acted like I was the crazy one. Humph. Now I'm angry again.
