Sheesh, what next?

Peaceniks work up to Global Orgasm:

If you've got a few minutes to spare on 22 December, and fancy a quick shag for the advancement of World peace and harmony, then get yourself down to Global Orgasm - a mass coming-together of.. well, no, a mass coming together sums it up quite nicely.

The plan is pretty simple: to "effect change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy" during the "First Annual Solstice Synchronized Global Orgasm for Peace".

There's more japery by following the link, but I wonder if these Fruit Loops have considered possible negative effects? Aside from the possibility of sore camels in Iran and Syria, can you imagine the effect on "human energy" if Cindy Sheehan slathered up with "emotion lotion" and jumped into a quivering Code Pink mosh pit of lust? On the other hand, I suppose we could survive if Skeletor Nancy Pelosi got together with John Murtha and Alcee Hastings to to "plight their troth," but I sure hope no one mentions it to Jimmy Carter and Hugo Chavez!

Pretty boy John Edwards gets spanked by Wal Mart

Wal-Mart To Sen. John Edwards: No PS3 For You!:

In a statement from Wal-Mart today, former Senator John Edwards had a staffer contact the electronics manager in a Raleigh, North Carolina store to try and get his hands on a PlayStation 3. Problem was, later that night he reportedly told a story to people on a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union-sponsored call that his son had ridiculed a classmate about his shoes, which were purchased at Wal-Mart.
Must be great to rub the other kids noses in the fact that your father is a wealthy ambulance chaser. Anyhow:
The Company noted the PlayStation 3 is an extremely popular item this Christmas season, and while the rest of America’s working families are waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front. While, we cannot guarantee that Sen. Edwards will be among one of the first to obtain a PlayStation 3, we are certain Sen. Edwards will be able to find great gifts for everyone on his Christmas list - many at Wal-Mart’s “roll-back prices.”
He's a man of the people fer sure. At least that's what he tells the servants.

The Aussies must have been thinking of me

Australia's CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) demonstrates some useful technology:
CSIRO has ‘built’ a shirt which could fulfil the fantasy of anyone who has, in the privacy of their homes, jammed along with one of rock ‘n roll’s great lead guitarists.

Led by engineer Dr Richard Helmer a team of researchers at CSIRO Textiles and Fibre Technology in Geelong has created a ‘wearable instrument shirt’ (WIS) which enables users to play an ‘air guitar’ simply by moving one arm to pick chords and the other to strum the imaginary instrument’s strings.

“Freedom of movement is a great feature of these textile-based interfaces,” Dr Helmer says.

”Our air guitar consists of a wearable sensor interface embedded in a conventional 'shirt' which uses custom software to map gestures with audio samples.

“It’s an easy-to-use, virtual instrument that allows real-time music making – even by players without significant musical or computing skills. It allows you to jump around and the sound generated is just like an original mp3.”
Dang, I'll be a star!

What's wrong with this picture?

Climatologists hit the skies to talk global warming:
A group of climate scientists from the UK's Met Office have flown to Nairobi to meet colleagues from around the world to discuss climate research and present their most recent findings.
[The climatologists are not stupid: they know where the good weather is in November - Ed]
I bet they'll serve beans at the gala event too.
