Random exchange from the '60s Batman show
Batman: Better put five cents in the meter.
Robin: No policeman's going to give the Batmobile a ticket!
Batman: This money goes to building better roads. We all must do our part.

Food Crisis for Thought
dihard: “A silent tsunami which knows no borders is sweeping the world,” says the head of the UN World Food Program. In Haiti, protesters shouting “we’re hungry” forced the prime minister to resign. Cameroon saw 24 deaths during hunger riots. Egypt’s president has ordered the army to bake bread. Hoarding rice in the Philippines is now punishable by life imprisonment. Riots in Côte d’Ivoire have...

Second trailer for The Dark Knight tonight? →
Update: Sunday. :( The “Alternative Reality Game” for The Dark Knight is reaching another climax tonight with events in a dozen major cities around the globe. The new trailer should be out online any day now, especially given that it’ll probably be bundled with Iron Man in theaters. So excited for this film.

edatrix: i just added someone, but double checked myself because I thought I’d already followed. then I realized that’s because a lot of the guys i follow have the same basic picture - it’s a head-on, full face shot of their unsmiling self. The girls i follow generally have something artistic or some expression or artsy angle, but the guys’ are almost all like mugshots. so why is that? I...

Q: How do you make a sequel to 50 Cent: Bulletproof, the by-all-accounts awful game featuring the eponymous rapper? A: Send him to the Middle East. To get a diamond-encrusted skull. Seriously.

A great (albeit longish) report on how digital technology has made it possible to work or play or hang out anywhere, and how our buildings have to transition to being similarly flexible. If you find it neat, the rest of the articles in that package are on the right in the “Related Items” box.

The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.– Alan Saporta (via affremblequotes and allisonweiss, who uncannily reblogged this just as I was writing my thoughts on escapes)
It seems to me that there are two kinds of escapes: places and people. Places are where you go to physically (and sometimes metaphorically) get away from the stresses of the rest of your life. For me, this is going to visit my parents for the weekend. They feed me and spoil me some, and I can push all the school-related worries out of my head because I’ve budgeted enough time to take care of...
Three things I saw on my drive to see the parents in KC: Monstrous shadows crawling over the rolling Kansas plains, each matched with its buddy cloud drifting overhead, A red-orange sun about to reach the horizon, bisected by some far-off strip of water vapor, and A vanity plate that read “MCGYVER”.I’ll leave you to guess which one led me to excitedly yelp “Badass!”
