Links of Interest 3/19

Mardi Gras from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.

Awesome tilt shift video of the Mardi Gras celebration this year. I suggest you check out the other depressing photos in the links below and come back to this one so it leaves a happy taste in your mouth.

If you’re a cynic (but one with hope) this article about the nation’s scientific knowledge will both be surprising and not surprising.

What do you think needs to be redesigned in everyday life? I disagree with the idea that the hearse needs to be redesigned. It’s become more iconic than practical, which means everyone knows exactly what is going on when it passes. I think that’s a good thing.

Detroit is in a freefall right now. Built on the steel of the automotive industry, we all know how that’s going right now. Here’s a gallery of pictures depicting the bad times the city is going through. Can we be far away from a real life prison city?

So I guess the economic collapse is what is on everyone’s minds, and it has pushed the idea of an environmental collapse to the back burner. But which is worse for humanity?

I’d argue that most, if not all wars are retarded, but these five really seem to take the cake.

Even if you pretend the television isn’t important in your life, you’re not being honest with yourself. So why not learn more about the wondrous box?

These kids have accomplished more in high school than I ever have or probably ever will.

Right on the heels of the depressing Detroit pictures…pictures from all over that give a sense of the current state of the economy.

Manson has seen better days. And he’s 74? I simply thought he was ageless.

I tried for like 10 minutes (ok 4 seconds) to come up with a clever line for finding a deadly spider in a supermarket’s produce section, but then realized the story was clever enough without me adding anything. But if you’d like, I’ll listen to suggestions in the comments.

Think it’s easy creating South Park because the animation is so crude? This article then would like to have a word with you.
