Some links and ting

Infinite Wheel. If you like well-produced web-toys then you will love this site. If you also happen to enjoy dub music, then you will really really love it. One of my favourite websites ever (and I've only just discovered it). Needs sound.

"President Bush unveiled an aggressive initiative Monday that would make the U.S. free of petroleum dependence by the year 4920, less than three millennia from now." (read more) I'm a big fan of The Onion. There are - as with everything groovy - those who say that it's past it's best. Well I've been reading it for 10 years now, and what impresses me most is the consistency. In fact, if anything it's gotten sharper. "Our distant relations will have some hard work to do," Bush said. "But hard work is what built this nation, and I have every faith that they will succeed."

Of course, the grim truth of the matter is that The Onion story wouldn't be half as funny if we didn't suspect that Bush really does think that way. Why else would the Hirsch report go missing, after all?

Incidentally, there hasn't been a new Get Your War On for a while now. Well worth giving the old ones a re-read though.

Federal Agent Jack Bauer thinks so.

By the way, if you're not a regular reader of George Monbiot's columns in The Guardian, then you should be bloody well ashamed of yourself. You can start making amends by reading his excellent piece on Patriotism which was in this weeks paper.

In the words of Albert Einstein, "Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind."
