OMG! A 15-minute video with almost no dancing! ^.^

Srsly, I adore Michael Shermer and this guide is a production of the Richard Dawkins Foundation, so what's not to love?

Born from Carl Sagan's observation that there's a lot of baloney out there and we need a kit to detect it, this vid provides the ten crucial questions to ask regarding sketchy claims of truth.

Notice from the Starbucks corp:

Also, our new food program rolled out today: No artificial flavors, dyes, trans fats, or high fructose corn syrup = "Real Food, Simply Delicious".

Well, I don't know if I'd go so far as to consider the combo of coffee, sugar, and cream a "real food" - a necessity of life, sure, but maybe not food. In any case, it's a cool step.

Now if they'd just go 100% fair trade and shade grown, all would be right with the world.

Sagittarius Horoscope for week of July 2, 2009

While appearing on the TV show "I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here," ex-pro basketball player John Salley gave some advice I'd like to pass along. "When you see crazy coming your way," he philosophized, "you should cross the street." I do think crazy will be headed in your direction sometime soon, Sagittarius, and the best response you can make is to avoid it altogether, preferably in a way that it doesn't notice you. That's right: Don't shout at crazy, don't bolt away ostentatiously, and certainly don't run up and give crazy a big hug. There are far better ways for you to gather in your fair share of intriguing mystery; I'd hate to see you get bogged down in a useless, inferior version of it.

AVOID THE CRAZY. Got it. But... I'm going to a convention this weekend... :P

[Error: unknown template video]
You know I couldn't let a day pass without a shot of Bollywood, right?

Watched the first half (?) of "Om Shanti Om" last night and had some hearty laughs. This video (indeed, the whole movie) is a campy satire of Bollywood itself, from the 70's to the present.

"Dard-e-disco" means "Pain of Disco". *snerk*

Gotta admit, Shahrukh Khan is lookin' pretty good though.
