The Null Device
Freeganism: For those for whom veganism is not radical enough.
If you are an "anti-capitalist", what better way to protest the economy than withdrawing from it and never using money?
Freegans wiely vary in their concern for health - some freegans gorge themselves on dumpstered donuts and some are still totally vegan, but get all their food for free... Some freegans eat "edgy" food (on the edge of edibility) and some don't take chances.
Don't flush when you pee! ... If you don't like the smell of pee stagnating in the toilet, pee outside our dilute your urine (7 water to 1 pee) and fertilize with it or drink it (Gandhi drank a cup of his own pee every day). Also, you can make manure out of your own poop! Or... dumpster dive some adult diapers and have a party where everyone straps one on and fills it up -no water wasted.
One serious omission from this tract is any reference to breatharianism. (via Riothero)
Life, liberty and the pursuit of bootywhang: Reading on the train can get you laid. (Coding Python on a battered-looking laptop, though, probably won't.)
The BBC asks what would happen if Britain decriminalised marijuana, following the Dutch example. Some of the predictions are reduced stress, less violence, lower fertility and higher rates of cancer, as well as an influx of "drug tourists".
Btw, does anyone know whether Bjork is distributed by Polydor in the UK, or just in the rest of the world? I've been tempted to buy her latest album Selmasongs, though would rather not give money to Universal (one of the more evil of the big evil recording companies).
I just picked up Radiohead's Kid A. So far it seems not too bad; pretty interesting for an alternative-rock band though probably not something I'll keep in my CD player non-stop (or bother ripping to my MP3 cache).
Uses of PhotoShop: In order to create an impression of diversity, the University of Idaho posted to its website a photograph of a student group, that had been digitally modified to contain minority students who were not present in the original. The photograph was taken down when the alteration was revealed.
