This might interest soshesays...

From /.:
"There's a new traveling exhibition in the UK entitled 1001 inventions. It contains some of the most interesting inventions from the past few thousand years. The common theme, however, is that they all came from the Islamic world and not the west. In some cases [the list is] quite surprising. For the lazy, the Independent newspaper in the UK printed their top 20 from the exhibition."


So... Why do civilizations fall behind in science. Through out time the technical skills of civilizations seem to cycle.

Like China at one point was the end-all-be-all of the techical world, and then they were over run by less technically advanced nations. We've found acheological eveidence of extremely advanced African nations, that disappeared. And the middle east once was the most advanced and opulant part of the world, and now for the most part seems to be barren wastelands with only oil keeping them from third world status. And the Romans bringing science to most of the old world, just to fall and, resulting in the following dark ages.

Some, myself included, feel that the U.S. might be in decline. We are losing ground on the science front, and we are angering our friends, and pay out billions in "aid" to buy friends. How long can we keep this up, and how long until we fall, and further, how can we prevent a fall? Can we learn from history?

Upcoming movies I would like to see:

  • V for Vendetta: All the reviews I've read for this, from NPR to Time, etc, are this movie will be excellent.
  • Thank You For Smoking: The book this is based on was excellent, and the author is very pleased with the film version, which is a good sign.
  • Find me guilty: I'm still not sold on Vin Diesel pulling this one off, but it's a true story and sounds like a good story line.


Also, I found out in Tigard they have what sounds like a fun amusing way to spend an evening with friends. I'm sure you all have done miniture golf. Nothing new there. But this one is indoors and all black light lit for glowy goodness. I think some serious (read: very silly) UV mini-golf is in order.

Who's game?

For those of a literary mind on my list:

This year's 10 winners of the Bulwer-Lytton contest, aka "Dark and Stormy Night Contest" (run by the English Dept. of San Jose State University), wherein one writes only the first line of a bad novel:

10) "As a scientist, Throckmorton knew that if he were ever to break wind in the echo chamber, he would never hear the end of it."

9) "Just beyond the Narrows, the river widens."

8) "With a curvaceous figure that Venus would have envied, a tanned, unblemished oval face framed with lustrous thick brown hair, deep azure-blue eyes fringed with long black lashes, perfect teeth that vied for competition, and a small straight nose, Marilee had a beauty that defied description."

7) "Andre, a simple peasant, had only one thing on his mind as he crept along the East wall: 'Andre creep... Andre creep... Andre creep.'"

6) "Stanislaus Smedley, a man always on the cutting edge of narcissism, was about to give his body and soul to a back alley sex-change surgeon to become the woman he loved."

5) "Although Sarah had an abnormal fear of mice, it did not keep her from eeking out a living at a local pet store."

4) "Stanley looked quite bored and somewhat detached, but then penguins often do."

3) "Like an over-ripe beefsteak tomato rimmed with cottage cheese, the corpulent remains of Santa Claus lay dead on the hotel floor."

2) "Mike Hardware was the kind of private eye who didn't know the meaning of the word 'fear'; a man who could laugh in the face of danger and spit in the eye of death -- in short, a moron with suicidal tendencies."

1) "The sun oozed over the horizon, shoved aside darkness, crept along the greensward, and, with sickly fingers, pushed through the castle window, revealing the pillaged princess, hand at throat, crown asunder, gaping in frenzied horror at the sated, sodden amphibian lying beside her, disbelieving the magnitude of the frog's deception, screaming madly, 'You lied!"

Oh, forgot to mention what I was listenning to for the inag-aural experience. List night I did the Sudoku, read waka's, and fell asleep to Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and Elliot Smith. Suprisingly I woke up with a very positive mood. Weird, that.
