    Oddbill mentioned on twitter how there should be an open source/p2p alternative to services like turntable.fm (so you don't have to dick about with proxies to get on).

    Well I just stumbled across a possible solution - sneer.me

    Sneer is a free and open source sovereign computing platform. It runs on your machine (like Skype or Firefox) using the Java VM. It enables you to:

    •Create your personal cluster by sharing hardware resources (CPU, disk space, network bandwidth) with your friends.
    •Host your own social network, information and media.
    •Create sovereign applications and share them with others.
    •Download and run sovereign applications created by others, way beyond your wildest dreams.
    You can do all these things directly with your peers, in an autonomous, sovereign way, without depending on online service providers such as email providers, Google, Facebook, etc.


    I've not gone any further than reading the promo literature but if it does what it promises it could be pretty cool..

    Diagram of pig disassembly room

    (The room in question is in a Hormel meat packing plant.)

    (I really, really, want to know where that pig brain slurry is going.)

    I thought that would be obvious....the brain slurry is clearly off to Hormel's top secret zombie proving grounds.

    Forgot to include a link to the story:

    http://motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2011/06/breaking-breathing-misty-mushed-pig-brains-not-awesome-your-health

    I read the linked to article.

    OK. Whew.

    The pig brain slurry is exported to Asia for use as a "stir fry thickener." So that can of SPAM in my cupboard doesn't have any pig brain slurry in it.

    Except for any brain mist that might have settled on the jowls, peckers, and eye socket meat before they got sent to the Cold Room.

    Those pictures are the best things on the internet. You win!

    This is simple and neat in a "D'oh! Why didn't I think of that?" kind of way:

    Police breaking into property in West Hampstead to highlight risk of burglary.

    Are there not serious legal questions surrounding this?

    Yeah, I saw those on Cracked this morning. Priceless!
