Poverty rate climbs, median income drops
(fairly "conservative" numbers, too, I'd say)
Illuminati throws support to Schwarzenegger
(Four more Fnords! Four more Fnords!)
Reaction time game

Beyond Belief
"The rules are simple.
Claims must be short, no long stories.
No long pauses when it’s your turn.
One point for every lie you successfully challenge,
one point for every truth you defend against a challenge.
Everything has to have happened to you or to somone you know:
no 3rd generation stories. It’s 20 bucks to play, winner takes all.
And nothing leaves the room."
"over fifty globes and spheres
including the most complex clock ever built."

Flash- based juggling simulator

Miss Kato's fifth-grade class figures out Radiohead
"We will play a career-spanning selection of Radiohead songs;
the kids, equipped with Sharpies and blank sheets of paper,
will simply draw whatever the music suggests to them.
We don't even give them the name of the band.
They don't know anything about Radiohead,
the mountain of criticism, the mythology.
Their thoughts and interpretations
are pure, unsullied, literally unique.

They are also extremely bizarre."

The Misleader
"A Daily Chronicle of Bush Administration Distortion"
(featuring "The Mis-State of the Union")
"The Personality Forge,
the world's first community
of living people and artificial intelligence entities called bots.
Come on in, and chat with bots and botmasters,
then create your own artificial intelligence personality,
and turn it loose to chat with real people and other bots.
The bots will form emotional relationships with
and memories about both people and other bots."

Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison
"He [Robert ParkeHarrison] comes down on the side of lamentation
but expresses it with an unusual combination of poetic license,
laboriously constructed props
and a wry and melancholy,
vaguely allusive sense of myth.
He appears in every picture,
in a black suit and white shirt with no tie,
a kind of Everyman or a minor employee of the universe,
patiently, dutifully doing a job that's too big for him.
That job is essentially to take care of a devastated Earth
with inadequate equipment.
He works or performs obscure rituals
in large and empty landscapes beneath gray skies.
Perhaps this is one man's private way
of saying that neither pollution, global warming nor digitalization
can entirely extinguish the hands-on experience
and human desire to create."

in terms of how it could affect
the Bush administration."

Microsoft's Really Hidden Files
"Within these folders you will find two major things:
Microsoft Internet Explorer has not been clearing
your browsing history after you have instructed it
to do so, and Microsoft's Outlook Express
has not been deleting your e-mail correspondence
after you've erased them from your Deleted Items bin.
And believe me, that's not even the half of it."
