15 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About “The Matrix”

I actually didn’t know most of these, plus number 13 surprised me, because I’ve seen the Lobby Scene a LOT and hadn’t considered how they’d done the special effects.

The Adventures of Kevin Koastie – The Year in Review. (Part 2)

These last 4 cartoons were stand-alone gags which helped to introduce some of the other crew members of the Space Guard Cutter Free Enterprise. Capt. Kwirk, Cdr. Sprock, Lt. Solo, Ens. Czeckoff, Hal, and the Doctor. Later I created the character of “Gunny”, and Lt. O’hara makes a cameo singing and dancing at the annual “Talk Like A Pirate Day” party, but the crew is still a bit sparse. I guess I’ll create more cast members as I need them. Any suggestions?

Hmmm… any Moon Nukers want to volunteer to have a cameo in the comic? I already have a cartoon avatar, so that should be easy to work in.

Link of the Day: Executive Orders – a Pre-9/11 Primer

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 6:00 pm

[High Praise! to Heritage.com]

The Use and Abuse of Executive Orders and Other Presidential Directives

A level-headed discussion on the use and abuse of Presidential Executive Orders, from February, 2001 – back when the world still made sense. I have a lot more faith in this discussion than any of the hot-headed fuming that’s come out in the last couple weeks.

The good news – Executive Orders are subject to judicial review

The bad news – Obama has complete discretion to not enforce laws or prosecute offenders:

“one may argue that a particular President is “abusing his discretion,” but even in such a case, he cannot be compelled to prosecute any criminal charges.”

Link of the Day: Short Version – Don’t Bother Keeping Trash Out of Your Recyclables, Because They’re Going to Sift Through It at the Dump Anyway

Monday, December 8, 2014 6:00 pm

[High Praise! to Distractify]

An Inside Look At What Really Happens To The Stuff You Recycle

And my favorite quote:

“But not every [printer ink] cartridge gets recycled the way you might think. It turns out that the most valuable part of a used printer cartridge is the tiny bit of ink still clinging to the inside. After the ink’s extracted, the cartridges are simply discarded, either tossed into a Chinese landfill or burned, further polluting the air and water.”

Fastest way to kill a planet – believing what you’re told by people who make money “saving” it.
