My favorite thing is capitalists calling socialist ideas “pie in the sky” when that term was coined by a Wobbly to describe, among other things, the hollow promises of capitalism

Henderson Island, a tiny landmass in the eastern South Pacific, has been found by marine scientists to have the highest density of anthropogenic debris recorded anywhere in the world, with 99.8% of the pollution plastic.

“Capitalism made your iPhone”

No, LABOR made your iPhone. Labor makes things under any -ism. The -isms just determine who gets paid.

Not enough invisible jet

It was there the whole time. You just didn’t see it because it was doing what it was supposed to do.

Well damn. Good point.

Programmable robotics toy from SONY uses small minimalist blocks with personality, allowing to be creative with papercraft:

Another video here better presents how you can use a controller and even create your own sumo robots:

From Spoon & Tamago:

Build, play, inspire. That’s the idea behind Sony’s new toy for kids, designed to inspire a future generation of robotics engineers. Toio is the result of 5 years of research into developing a toy that’s simple enough for kids to use, but also sophisticated enough to create a figurative sandbox where kids can explore the inner-workings of robotics engineering.

Toio, at first glance, is stunningly simple: the core of the toy is just 2 white cubes with wheels. But don’t be fooled by their appearance. The tiny cubes pack a whole lot of tech. They respond to motion, are able to detect the exact location of the other, and can be programmed but also remote controlled. 

You can find out more at the official Toio website here

Highly recommend following the Spoon & Tamago blog here

Del Toro himself stated in the DVD commentary that the Pale Man represented the dictatorial regime of Francisco Franco in 1940s civil war Spain.

For instance, Pan’s Labyrinth’s antagonist Vidal the Franconist captain and the Pale Man share many similarities. Both withhold provisions/food, killers of children, monsters that can only use violence to solve problems and when the Pale Man sits on his table, it mirrors the dinner scene with Vidal in centre of the shot, sitting on the dining table.

In both the real world and the fantasy realm, protagonist Ofelia encounters a personification of regime control.

So do you feel he’s changing his story?

Honestly the rationale he gives in the image makes me NOT want to see the movie because it makes it come off as self flagellation for random SJW points. But the rationale you describe is a lot more on point with a message.

He isn’t changing the story.  The two are and have been always intended to be mirrors of one another, one reality both reflecting and shaping the other.

It’s a great movie.  Watch it.

D.I.S.L.I.B. - The Discordian Internet Society's Library of Interesting Books

aktion23:

We thought 5/23 might be the right day to make this public, even though it isn’t 100% ready yet…

About the D.I.S.L.I.B.

The D.I.S.L.I.B. is the Discordian Internet Society’s Library of Interesting Books. Or maybe “DISLIB” is just short for Discordian Library. Who knows?

It is a collection of all kinds of stuff, may they be discordian, discordian-related or just interesting for chaotic scholars and followers of other silly cults. We hope that all the collected stuff we are offering is free. In case it isn’t, and especially if it is your un-free stuff we are offering *gulp* illegaly here, just tell us (as soon as the corresponding forms are ready), and we take it down.

As you might have guessed from the logo - a winged St. Gulik that has been shamelessly adapted to a pseudo-retro-egyptian style - we have been inspired by the ancient Library of Alexandria. Also, by the Bibliotheca Anonoma project, the Discordian Archives and the Discordian Online Library of the​ M’.’M’.’M’.’​​​, which also provided the base for our current stock.

Speaking of “we” all the time, you might wonder who we are. Maybe you don’t. We tell you anyway. Currently, there’s two of us: Abbot Ron Oxymo, head of the Ordo Dea Discordia and His Quasaric Sphericity the Bwana Honolulu, head of Zimmer523, the German Discordian AnArchive. But we are open for applications.

Also, submissions. Are you missing some important work? Maybe your own? Give us a hint (again, as soon as the corresponding forms are ready).

Submissions, criticism and applications are also accepted via tumblr messages. ;-)
