Idiocracy Sampler

This video sampler starts with Joe trying to make sense of his disorientation by going to a hospital for help. As Joe struggles with his new post-hibernation society, he inevitably ends up incarcerated. But that is only the beginning of Joe's adventure in his new world.

If you like these, you can click on either video screen to go to YouTube, where other short cuts from Idiocracy are available for viewing.

Sex for the Virtuous Virtual Couple

This really is a fascinating concept--using data-linked artificial sex organs, a man and a woman can pleasure each other over great distances. They can even record a "pleasure session" using the artificial sex organ interface and a data storage device, then transfer the "pleasure file" to their partner, who then replays the session using his or her own artificial sex organ as the interface.

Hat tip Wired News.

Riding the Poop Rocket To The Moon

Most of you already know that manure can produce methane via microbial digestion. In fact many dairy farmers are taking advantage of this process to create much of their own electricity with methane powered generators.

But why should we settle for simple electricity from manure, when we can use it to fly to the moon? I believe that we need to get our priorities straight. Using animal poop to power a moon rocket displays a certain savoir faire, and ambitious resourcefulness, that modern "woe-is-me-the-world-is-coming-to-an-end" media and academia seems to lack. In fact, I challenge the new US Democratic Congressional leadership to grab the manure with both hands, and march into the future with their eyes on the prize--regaining the moon.

Anything less would be letting us all down.
