From what I’ve been told, this commercial was only aired once.

It’s worth a watch.

Socialized medicine in Canada — broken

Posted by mesablue on October 17, 2007

Healthcare rationing, thousands crossing the border — people dying.

A cottage industry has popped up in the US arranging healthcare for Canadians that can afford to cross the border for treatment.

“Canadians that don’t use the healthcare system love it, those that are in the system — don’t.”

Sony supercomputer?

Posted by mesablue on October 17, 2007

Creative computing:

Astrophysicist Replaces Supercomputer with Eight PlayStation 3s

a cluster of eight interlinked PS3s is busy solving a celestial mystery involving gravitational waves and what happens when a super-massive black hole, about a million times the mass of our own sun, swallows up a star.

As the architect of this research, Dr. Gaurav Khanna is employing his so-called “gravity grid” of PS3s to help measure these theoretical gravity waves — ripples in space-time that travel at the speed of light — that Einstein’s Theory of Relativity predicted would emerge when such an event takes place.

It turns out that the PS3 is ideal for doing precisely the kind of heavy computational lifting Khanna requires for his project, and the fact that it’s a relatively open platform makes programming scientific applications feasible.

“The interest in the PS3 really was for two main reasons,” explains Khanna, an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth who specializes in computational astrophysics. “One of those is that Sony did this remarkable thing of making the PS3 an open platform, so you can in fact run Linux on it and it doesn’t control what you do.”

Yeah, but can it play Halo 3? I think not.

Time waster…

Kind of fun.

Google Image Labeler:

How does it work?

You’ll be randomly paired with a partner who’s online and using the feature. Over a two-minute period, you and your partner will be shown the same set of images and asked to provide as many labels as possible to describe each image you see. When your label matches your partner’s label, you’ll earn points depending on how specific your label is. You’ll be shown more images until time runs out. After time expires, you can explore the images you’ve seen and the websites where those images were found. And we’ll show you the points you’ve earned throughout the session.

Try it — here.

Ellen loses it

Posted by mesablue on October 17, 2007

No one died, her girlfriend didn’t leave her, Bush didn’t get re-elected for a third time — what could she be so upset about?

A puppy!!! Ellen was a dumbass and adopted a rescue dog and was surprised when it didn’t get along with her cats so she gave the dog to someone else. The rescue dog place made her sign an agreement that if she couldn’t keep the dog — she’d return it. It’s a rescue dog, dipshit. They don’t want to have to re-rescue dogs that are passed around by idiots who adopt them on a whim.

Watch and be amazed at her moonbatty little tantrum…

Longer version — here.

Heh, I don’t expect this to be on YouTube very long.

Update: Nice — Death Threats Won’t Sway Rescue Group to Return Dog Ellen DeGeneres Gave Away
