I have to admire the boyish joie de vivre of a guy whose hobby is blowing
up high explosives with target rifles.
The unheimlich Australian artwork of Patricia Piccinini. This stuff is
beyond the biopunk beyond. I wonder if she's got kids.
If you've never seen me ranting in public, I've got to say that I'm
pretty well in top form in this Watson Institute clip.
I got one of these for Christmas. It's really cute, it works great
and the solar-powered gearworks are just nifty-keen.
There is something very weird, sinister and Arthur Koestler DARKNESS AT
NOON going on in Turkmenistan. Foreign minister turned dissident
confesses on TV, "Living in Russia, we took drugs and recruited
mercenaries to commit terrorist attacks." That's either true or
it isn't, and it's really bad either way.
Note that he accused the President of being a major-league heroin conduit
before this supposed TV confession that he himself is personally
chock-full of heroin. Brrrr.
Smack is all over the place there.
"What minimal coherent policy formulation and implementation that existed in
Turkmenistan has probably dissolved in the face of executive
incompetence, chronic discontinuity and endemic corruption."

He lives with his wife Nancy and their two daughters in Austin, Texas.
