Spiders on drugs, spiders on drugs

We've all heard about spiders being given minute quantities of this and that and then being observed to see what kinds of webs they build. This is a truly funny video about woodspiders on drugs. It's less than 2 minutes long and I promise you'll love it. Watch the whole thing.

Thought on gun control

One of the most popular reasons given by gun owners on why it's important for a free America to keep their guns is for the protection and preservation of their rights: no-one, supposedly, will infringe or take away their Constitutional rights as long as they've got guns.

I guess there were no gun owners in the US for the 8 years of the Bush Administration.

Yeah, like this one's rocket surgery....

Fla. city to workers: Wear underwear, deodorant

Want a great job in Seattle?

An old and dear friend of mine just sent me a job listing for an Interactive Designer job in Seattle at a great company (Fitch; they do advertising and marketing work) with an incredible team, really fun products, nice offices, a great location (downtown Seattle), and probably a pretty decent salary. I don't know that last one for sure, but I'm willing to make a wager that it's true.

So, if you know someone who’s got interactive designer credentials, likes the look of the job description, and wants to work FT in Seattle, aim them at me and I’ll give them the name of the person to talk to there. You’re more than welcome to pass this around to anyone you like. Have them email me here.

"Alcohol: the cause of... and the solution to... all of life's problems!"

A lovely French video (don't worry, you won't need to understand what they're saying) about animals in Africa enjoying an annual treat of fermented fruits.
