    @Wood: Not sure, perhaps they just find the road from Leytonstone to Ongar particularly picturesque, the scenery is rather good and there used to be some very nice pubs along the route if you fancied stopping off for lunch on a lazy sunday.

    An interview with the guy who beat Sim City.



    "There are a lot of other problems in the city hidden under the illusion of order and greatness--suffocating air pollution, high unemployment, no fire stations, schools, or hospitals, a regimented lifestyle--this is the price that these sims pay for living in the city with the highest population. It’s a sick and twisted goal to strive towards. The ironic thing about it is the sims in Magnasanti tolerate it. They don’t rebel, or cause revolutions and social chaos. No one considers challenging the system by physical means since a hyper-efficient police state keeps them in line. They have all been successfully dumbed down, sickened with poor health, enslaved and mind-controlled just enough to keep this system going for thousands of years. 50,000 years to be exact. They are all imprisoned in space and time."

    What if textbooks told European history the way they tell Native American history ?
    Pre-contact Europeans wore clothing made of natural materials such as animal skin and plant and animal-based textiles. Women wore long dresses and covered their hair, and men wore tunics and leggings. Both men and women liked to wear jewelry made from precious stones and metals as a sign of status. Before contact, Europeans had very poor diets. Most people were farmers and grew wheat and vegetables and raised cows and sheep to eat. They rarely washed themselves, and had many diseases because they often let their animals live with them.

    A friend pointed me towards this today and I belatedly discover that it was on dailydot last week, but:

    Webdriver Torso

    over 77,000 video uploads in 7 months - I haven't got through them all yet but it looks as though they are very nearly identical - 11 seconds long, a series of still images of blue and red rectangles is shown while a sequence of tones plays. The content of each appears to be unique although really, how can you know?

    I just watched a 0 views video that was probably made by a machine and that, most likely, has never been seen before by a human being. Please don't ask why.

    (courtesy volume warning, loud tones)

    A113 was the Character Animation room at Cal Arts, the school founded by Disney to be THE college for Animation in the US.

    (side note-I was actually accepted to CalArts but for Graphic Design, not Animation so I opted for the Savannah College of Art and Design instead so I could study Seq Art).
