Just in case we aren’t the only ones who could use a mid-week pick-me-up, here’s a short clip of a Japanese kindergarten class singing “Dayman” from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. It’s pretty amazing. Bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can figure out why Peter Griffin is on the white board. (ht to Jezebel)

Several minutes missing from Romney video; conservatives cry foul

1 or 2 minutes are missing from the leaked Romney video, according the journalist who obtained it. Mother Jones’ David Corn says his source told him that the recording device “inadvertently shut down or timed-out” during Romney’s speech, and had to be turned back on. "[A]t most, one to two minutes were missed,” Corn told Politico. In response, the conservative activists at Breitbart.com denounced the video’s legitimacy, saying that “there is new reason to suspect manipulation” on the part of Mother Jones when “a large portion of video” is missing.  Mother Jones released a total of 67 minutes of video from the event, so the missing footage would amount to roughly 3% of the complete product.

Excerpt from a documentary on the film “Collateral Murder,” aired by the television station Al Jazeera English in 2010.

Assange later told Frontline and CBS News after Pfc. Brad Manning was arrested that Wikileaks would have no way of identifying its source:

“Our technology means we don’t know who is submitting us materials,” Assange told Katie Couric in a segment aired by CBS News on December 18, 2010. “But the name Bradley Manning was first heard by us when we read an article about his arrest in Wired magazine.”

Assange also told the Frontline Club: “We don’t keep records of who our sources are, because it’s very difficult with modern communication spying to keep anything secret over the long term, extremely difficult when dealing with organizations that do not follow the rule of law like the NSA — so instead, our sort of modus operandi is when we receive material is to never know who it’s come from precisely.” - http://goo.gl/jvmsD

Seems like today’s a good day to resurface this.

FOX: George Zimmerman breaks his silence on Trayvon Martin case

Worth noting that Zimmerman and Hannity had a prior relationship — while with his original lawyers, Zimmerman talked directly to the Fox News host, even though he wasn’t authorized to.

Pursuit of Light

“Water and stone. Flower and bone: home.”

From the terrestrial to the celestial, from the atomic to the tectonic, discovery is all about pursuing light in some way, isn’t it?

NASA has given us many gifts: Knowledge of this planet and many worlds beyond. At a time when many of their missions, and our sense of wonder and inspiration along with them, are in jeopardy … they remind us of how illuminating science can be.

Pursuit of Light is promotion for NASA, but it’s also promotion for thinking big, and embracing that “Ahhh” feeling. Full screen, HD, sound up. 

Share it with someone you love, and stay curious.

Because what’s a good day without having your mind blown at least once?

This is easily the best video you’ll see from CPAC all weekend. Don’t look at this as anything more than it is: Really entertaining theatre.
