Peace On Earth

I remember whatching this when I was a kid, during Satruday Morning cartoons.  I rememebr the imagery because it scared me.  It really is kind of disturbing, when you consider the inteneded audience... (or maybe kids were not the intended audience, but it was show anyways becuase it was a cartoon)

Driving home tomorrow night after work (yay, another 6 hour drive!) and will be coming back the day after Christmas.  When I was home for Thanksgiving, I was home for too long, and it got kind of tedious.  So I am not staying as long this time... and I gotta work on Saturday. Anyway, Merry Chrsitsmas!

THE HUNT FOR GOLLUM - FULL Trailer 1 from Chris Bouchard on Vimeo.

quick science/politics post

"Whether it’s the science to slow global warming; the technology to protect our troops and confront bioterror and weapons of mass destruction; the research to find life-saving cures; or the innovations to remake our industries and create twenty-first century jobs—today, more than ever before, science holds the key to our survival as a planet and our security and prosperity as a nation.

Because the truth is that promoting science isn’t just about providing resources—it’s about protecting free and open inquiry. It’s about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology. It’s about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it’s inconvenient—especially when it’s inconvenient. Because the highest purpose of science is the search for knowledge, truth and a greater understanding of the world around us. That will be my goal as President of the United States—" - Barrack Obama

Its gonna be sooo nice to have an intelligent president.
