Ball Camera, very cool


Perhaps the coolest thing I've seen in a really....really long time. Where do I get one?

Sadness


Superior Discount Liquor had an unexpected and dramatic inventory reduction earlier this year when a shelf running the length of the store gave way, sending 6,810 bottles of wine and champagne hurtling to the floor. The collapse flooded the store and sent two nearby workers scurrying out of the way.

Hard Times in Virginia

"I had something to say, but I don't remember what it was."
In an ironic twist, President Obama's Teleprompter had an unscripted moment when it was apparently stolen along with a stash of other audio equipment inside a truck awaiting the president's arrival in Virginia.
The Defense Information System Agency on Tuesday confirmed the theft of the truck, which was later recovered, but said no sensitive information was lost.

The truck was stolen in Henrico County outside Richmond. It was stationed there in advance of a presidential visit on Wednesday, while the president started his bus tour in North Carolina.

There must be some serious hard times in Virginia when government agency trucks used by the President to get reelected are stolen. I just imagine the guys who looked inside and figured out they just stole something from the President of the United States. I'll bet they stay in hiding for a few months.
