Thursday Tidbits: January 11, 2007

Posted by Jer / January 11, 2007

Here's the news you can't possibly live without for today.

George Bush admits that "it is clear that we need to change our strategy [in Iraq]" and then proceeds to stay the course by spending more money and sending in more troops. Next, the president plans to stuff cotton balls in his ears and recommend the trusted "fight fire with fire and then more fire" strategy.

Scorpions on a plane? For the second time this week, a scorpion stowaway stung a passenger on a North American commerical airline. The travel advisory committee reminds passengers that the following items are NOT permitted as carry-ons:
1. liquids
2. sharp objects
3. bombs
4. scorpiorns

Copyright reform for digital music seems imminent, as Canadian lawmakers attempt to make it even more inconvenient for listeners to access the music they love. Ideally, musicians will also get screwed in the process so that the only people profiting are SonyBMG.

There's a great Pavement mp3 (and write up) over at Said the Gramophone. I've asked myself plenty of times what the hell this song is about, but to no avail. I think Pavement actually just recorded all their material by accident.

A prof at the University of Calgary has finally, after ten years, finished his book on procrastination. Amazingly, procrastinators aren't perfectionists, they are simply impulsive and easily distracted. Apparently, email and messaging are distracting.

And, to wrap things up, something you totally won't care about: In 1000 years, you'll be able to see this in the sky.
