Lovecraft for President

This is an interesting article about conditions that could have lead up to H.P. Lovecraft becoming American president. Personally, I think the author is a little too harsh on old Howard Phillips. (He after all just followed many ideas that were "scientific" and "trendy" in his time. He was also strange but not particularly psychotic.) But it's an interesting read nonetheless, and with a funny bit at the very end. :)

Lego Constructions

Wow, here's a gallery full of very impressive vehicles built from LEGO. What amazes me is that there's so much accurate detail on the models that are built. You can easily distinguish what type of tank, aircraft, etc. that they are.

Geek Toy

This could be an amazing present for any geek. In fact, I wonder why I haven't seen anything like this before. Too expensive though.

Winston Churchill

For those of you who know me, you may know that one of my favourite statesmen ever is Winston Churchill. Here's a story that's interesting and reminded me of a quote about him:

"Churchill is the very type of a corrupt journalist. There is not a worse prostitute in politics. He himself has written that it's unimaginable what can be done in war with the help of lies. He's an utterly amoral repulsive creature. I'm convinced that he has his place of refuge ready beyond the Atlantic. He obviously won't seek sanctuary in Canada. In Canada he'd be beaten up. He'll go to his friends the Yankees. As soon as this damnable winter is over, we'll remedy all that."

This is an interesting analysis of the current low birthrates around the world and their possible future political consequences. Really interesting if you look at which countries have high birthrates, and which ones don't.
