We need more of these. Every club should have a dance floor like this. In fact, every high-traffic surface should have one of these. I’d skip down the sidewalk all the time if my skipping were converted into useable energy. I’d probably skip anyway; I’m just a happy-go-lucky, skippy kinda guy. But how awesome would it be if I was powering things with my skips?
This is so fucking rad. I love skyscraper stuff, and can watch hours and hours of skyscraper-related architecture shows on TLC and Discovery. So, this site made my jaw drop. I just kept muttering, “so effing rad. So effing rad…” Check out the video of the ball in action during the recent Chinese earthquake:
Not that I’m harping on these folks. Just pointing out that while so many of us in the gay blogosphere despise and repudiate Perez for his classlessness, we still seem to hang on his every word. At least when it comes to outing gay celebrities, that is. I’ve certainly been guilty of repeating Perez’s filth before. Even this post validates and dignifies his gossip, in a way.
This week I had sprawled naked booty on my mind. I love the first three photos. Especially the very first photo in the gallery (top left). OMG. Makes me weak in the knees and very un-weak in the groin. Continue reading →
Okay, so I’m not opposed to politicians changing their minds on principle. Everyone evolves and adapts their positions and opinion based on a changing landscape. That in and of itself does not make one a flip-flopper. However, changing your position on a topic days or weeks after stating the opposite, for pure political gains… That’s flip-flopping. The Carpetbagger Report has a list chock-full of McCain’s flip-flops. Perhaps a few are mere evolutions of opinion. The rest scream of political posturing.
From the conservative Orange County Register (via here):
Our preference would be for the government not to be involved in marriage, the most fundamental of institutions in a civil society. Why two people who want to be married should be required to get a license from the state is something of a mystery. Marriage existed long before the California or U.S. governments came into being and will continue long after they have been consigned to history. Whether a marriage is valid should be up to the people involved and the churches, synagogues, mosques or other religious institutions that choose to perform them or not.
As a practical matter, however, the government has so entwined itself into our daily lives that state recognition is important. Filing taxes as a married couple or as individuals makes a difference, as does the ability to own real estate, make end-of-life decisions or adopt children. Considering all this and the importance of equality before the law, the high court’s decision was justified.
Several other Senators besides Dodd have ratcheted up the opposition to this bill in the last couple of days. In addition to Dodd, Sens. Feingold, Boxer, and Wyden all announced they would oppose cloture on the bill. Not insignificantly, Sen. Reid announced not only that he would co-sponsor the Dodd amendment to strip immunity out of the bill, but would also vote against the bill on final passage:
It is a position that puts the Democratic Senate leader at odds with his own party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Barack Obama, who also has pledged to fight for the removal of immunity but will vote yes on the final package. . . . That the Senate Majority Leader would willingly take a different stance from his party’s presidential nominee is an indication of both the political pressures of the current election as well as the emotional divisiveness of the FISA battle.
Gay marriage proponents are trying to get the California Supreme Court to strike the amendment from the ballot in November. They claim that the amendment is so severe that it should require Legislative approval before going before voters. And, that it should then require 2/3 voter approval. That’s the way Massachusetts does it, and why such an amendment has never made it to the voters. The MA Legislature has voted such a measure down repeatedly.
The SF Chronicle ran a fascinating piece on Sunday regarding the vanishing of the middle class in San Francisco. Currently, the only income class experiencing an increase in the city are people making over $200,000 per year. One critic said that if things continue this way, SF will end up a “Disneyland for yuppies.”
The Long Now Foundation has a list of Underground Wonders. I’ve always been fascinated by caves and such. Check out their list and follow the links. Awesome!
The real McCain. Leave it to a UK journalist to finally cast a spotlight on who John McCain really is.
