The next two or three days are jampacked with meatspace goodness for me, but a few items before I go:
-Kiss My Ahss: Newly converted eco-warrior Arnold Schwarzenegger on why he thinks it's taken people so long to "warm up" to environmentalists:
“They were like Prohibitionists at a fraternity party. But I believe this is about to switch over. It’s about to switch because it’s going to be powered not by guilt, but by something much more positive, by something much more dynamic, by something much more capable of bringing about real big change.”
Oh, so if we'd been a bit more fun you might have listened before the climate was stressed to the point of collapse? Piss off. A better analogy would have been, "We were like the people at a fraternity party desperately trying to get the keys away from some stupid drunk asshole before he got behind the wheels of the Lincoln Navigator his dad bought him and he went and killed somebody."
I mean, Arnold, it's great that you've converted your Hummers to run on hydrogen and biodiesel, but, piss off.
-At first, I got all fanboy giddy over this - but then I realized it's only application will be to kill people.
-Well, Max, I'd say it's for the same reason lions go after the sick and lame zebras of the herd. (Via The Sideshow.)
While I'm gone, enjoy this picture of the only woman in New York Rudy Giuliani hasn't divorced yet.
