"All maps have mistakes in them, often because a building or road has
changed since the map was made. OpenStreetMap maps also have mistakes,
but unlike other maps, you can fix them."

Good review article on early Muppet history (includes videos):
http://technologizer.com/2010/05/31/ibm-muppets/

"Before Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, Jim Henson made short films
for Big Blue. The tech may be archaic, but the entertainment is timeless."

Time to take off on the ROFLcopter. Some of these knock off toys show real
imagination and honesty. I mean, Blandness Girl...of course! I love some of
the Transformer knock offs, such as Titanic-Bot (batteries and life-boats not
included) or Thomas the Transformer Engine (no one messes with my friends).

Optical illusions are a lot of fun. I remember in high school art class having
an assignment to paint one. Everyone else did the usual black and white
squares in strange arrangements. I did my own Grateful Dead rendition only
with yellow-eyed owls that had different coloured bodies, so that it would
look like a different shade of yellow on each one.
