If you want a laugh then listen to this NPR commentary by Scott Cleland against Net Neutrality. His idiocy will astound you. If that doesn't convince you to support Net Neutrality then listen to Craig Newmark's counter commentary.
So I went out to buy a Nintendo DS Lite along with the game Brain Age. So far it has been a great addition to my daily routine. I do a sudoku in the morning, my usual one from google ig, and when I come home from work I do the daily training from Brain Age and sometimes an additional sudoku from the game as well. I like it much better than the random things I was doing before to keep my brain active and it seems to be much more effective. I no longer feel as sluggish most days.
Plus the other games I have for the NDS are awesome fun as well. Good job Nintendo.
Here's three more interesting links on energy. This one talks about the myths and realities of ethanol suggesting it may not be all its hyped to be. This other one is sort of a propaganda commercial for using coal but is still interesting as we should definitely diversify our use of any resource for energy. Of course this post wouldn't be complete without a link talking about peak oil.
