Remember those 16mm educational films they used to show in class to teach you about periods and things? A site called the Prelinger Archives (thanks, Glen!) links to some you can download and watch with Quicktime or Real. Included in their list of the most downloaded are “Are You Popular?”, “As Boys Grow” (featuring a rather creepy coach), “Molly Grows Up,” and “A is for Atom.” People even post reviews!
I learned from “Molly” that when I’m on my period, I should only square dance in moderation. Very good to know.
Earth talk is a discussion community and learning network dedicated to bringing about global environmental sustainability through environmental advocacy. Established January 20, 2004
I didn’t get a chance to mention it at the time, but SpaceShipOne, the world’s most fantastically beautiful rocketship, had its first supersonic test on December 17th. Note that this is the first privately-built aircraft to break the sound barrier.
The Mojave weblog also has a nice page with photos of the launch, including the heart-stopping (but luckily not show-stopping) landing. I can’t wait to hear about the next flight!
I know you thought Jesus was with you always, but apparently he’s no longer sending people inspirational text messages. Damn those Finns!
I know it’s just lack of sleep, but everything looks surreal to me today. For instance, this site with Jesus sketches. It almost makes sense, but then… a french horn?
I also find myself wondering if Jesus should be standing farther back from the welder, or if he scrubbed up before going into the operating room.
Oddest of all, the site doesn’t ask us to do anything with the sketches. Can’t buy them, not really supposed to glean anything in particular from them. Just, um, enjoy them, I guess. Right?
