Great Umbrella for Google Earth

Although this umbrella is being sold as a F*ck the Rain Umbrella, I'm sure it would work just as well for Google Earth pictures of neighborhoods. Available from Art Lebedev Studios for approx. $60 US.

The Simplest View of the Sub Prime Mess

As only stick figures can explain it all...

And What Part of Legal Immigration Don't You Understand?

Thank you, thank you, REASON Magazine, for the best visual overview of the current immigration mess written by Mike Flynn and Shikha Dalmia, and as only artist, Terry Colon, could illustrate it. Having gone through this abominable process personally - with incredible stories to tell about how Jimmy Carter's disastrous Mariel Boat Lift screwed up my legal application - I can honestly concur 100% with this graphic's points.

Most roller coaster rides like Six Flags take pictures of their riders and then try to sell them to you as you get off the ride. Guess this guy won't be buying a print (but someone else sure did!).

Some Cool Flash

Every once in a while, some one codes up a really cool, interactive Flash page. Play with Spider is not for those who are squeamish about spiders, Dude! But it's a lot more fun than messing around with the real thing. Drag it around the map by pulling its legs or just by moving your mouse around. Or try feeding it some insects by pressing on the spacebar.
