And then I went a little bit crazy.

The trip to Portugal gave me a bad case of wanderlust. Even before I got back to my cubicle under the fluorescent lights of the office tower downtown, I started plotting my escape.

With Y2K and the end of the world bearing down, suddenly I had the urge to taste and touch / and to feel as much as a man can, before the world collapsed in a Y2K apocalypse.

From the perspective of the outside world, I went a little crazy. I ditched the ties, quit my job, sold the car, grew a beard, let my hair flow, donned a kaftan and found myself wandering through the desert in Cairo (among other places).

Ingenius: Turning plastic bottles into string!

Now this is an ingenius idea that anyone can do. Taking any plastic bottle and turning it into string, as seen in the video.
Basically, the guy cut grooves into a small metal beam and put a box cutter blade inside. The grooves are different sizes so you can choose a size to cut and create anything from string to ribbon.

This seemed like the best section to stick this in as its about making something yourself.

McCain: Rand Paul part of ‘Fortress America’ wing of GOP

By Martin Matishak - 07/13/14 10:03 AM EDT

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday waded into a brewing foreign policy debate inside the Republican Party, saying Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) represents a more isolationist outlook.

Paul is “part of a wing of the party that has been there prior to World War I, that is a withdrawal to ‘Fortress America,’” McCain said on CNN’s "State of the Union."

...

McCain, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with Paul, acknowledged the freshman senator has a “far different view than mine of the world.”

The NSA Revelations All in One Chart

http://projects.propublica.org/nsa-grid/
Published June 30, 2014

This is a plot of the NSA programs revealed in the past year according to whether they are bulk or targeted, and whether the targets of surveillance are foreign or domestic. Most of the programs fall squarely into the agency’s stated mission of foreign surveillance, but some – particularly those that are both domestic and broad-sweeping – are more controversial.

Just as with the New York Magazine approval matrix that served as our inspiration, the placement of each program is based on judgments and is approximate.

Anadrome. Encouraging Lexical Experimentation.

This has been posted around in some comments here and there, and it was in the original jam session for a while, but I thought I’d share it here with anyone who may have missed it.

Anadrome. A new spin on an old game. A few of us around here have been playing this game and we are having fun, but we would love more company.

http://anadro.me/login
You can login from gmail and or facebook.

Here are the rules
http://anadro.me/rules

But basically it’s like scrabble with all sorts of extra tiles and big points to be had.

Why should you come play anadrome with us?

Why is the Daily Paul all Men?

Im just curious but if i had to guess, men outnumber woman 9 to 1 or more on the DP (this is what I have approximated). Why do you think this is so? Do you find men to be more liberty minded than woman? Or is this a "good ol' boys club"

How about we create some clinical names for our sleeping/brainwashed brethren?

I'll start.

Ocularplegia
Cranialplegia
Cranial Dystrophy
etc.

Essentially, instead of just saying they're blind or stupid, we can come of with our own nomenclature to describe our brethren who are blind or just stuck in the paradigm.

Some of them could be quite funny.
