Robert Harrison, 38, used a collection of cheap parts costing £500 to create a balloon-mounted camera that can travel up to 21.7 miles (35km) above the surface of the Earth. The result is a series of pictures taken from a height that only a rocket or weather balloon can reach. The resulting photographs, which he published online, were so impressive that Nasa has been in touch.Read more »
The Cathedral of Junk goes far beyond the "sofa in the lawn" code violation with a massive 3-story 60-ton building made entirely of discarded and donated items. The city is giving the owner two weeks to clean-up, get architectural permits and otherwise make a structure made entirely of junk up-to-code or have the whole lot bull-dozed.Read more »

Article in Forbes bashes Keynesianism for the fraud that it is: During 2009 there was a lot of smug talk among academic and political liberals of Keynesianism enjoying a triumphant revival. But in the real world of jobs, wages and production--as opposed to the imaginary one of the chattering classes--the evidence shows that John Keynes' notion of being able to spend your way out of recession has not worked this time, if it ever did. It's important to note that ordinary voters are more sharply aware of this idea's failure than are the Western governments that have put their trust in Keynes.Read more »

"Air passengers already tolerate a large invasion of their privacy," the committee said in a report, citing pat-downs and bag searches as specific examples. "We do not feel that full body scanners add greatly to this situation."
The privacy fears raised by the deployment of full body scanners at airports are overblown, a committee of British lawmakers said Wednesday, adding that the technology was no more of a threat to passengers' rights than pat-downs or bag searches.Read more »

I'm astounded that this article appeared in Time (or at least on their website). They rationally propose the fact that college might not be for everyone, as well as talk about the underground economy:
"Faced with the burden of financing the decades-long retirement of aging boomers, many of the young embrace a new underground economy, a largely untaxed archipelago of communes, co-ops, and kibbutzim that passively resist the power of the granny state while building their own little utopias."Read more »
I'm in 9th grade at Booker High School in Sarasota, FL. In my first period class every morning over the intercom a voice says "Now, Booker High students please stand for the pledge." Well my friend and I sat, and didn't say anything. We believe the pledge is a waste of time and we have a right not to stand because of our beliefs. My teacher saw us and told us to stand, but we refused. So he pulled my friend and I out of class and scolded us "Now, I don't care what you believe in!! It's school policy to stand! SO STAND." Well I have a right not to stand.Read more »
