Diane Lane photographed by Andy Warhol, 1984.

This is obviously a reference to the San Fernando Valley, not California’s other metonymous valley, but man do I want one of these shirts.

Well, someone’s produced it as a Women’s Tri-Blend Performance T-Shirt, if that helps.

Known problem. Call us.
Your Friends, The Colonists.
P.S.: there is no solution. Kisses!

Hm. Now that’s an interesting map. London Plus looks like a wedge, thinner in the west and thicker in the east.
Better connections from the eastern side? People in the west work away from an office more?
And whatever happened to telecommuting? Are all these folks physically required to commute into London Classic? Presumably yes, they are.

[this is good]
Apparently “more than 1.3 million people live in the area marked in blue” which would put the population of London Plus above 9m, possibly approaching 10m by the 2021 census.

quote 01:50:27

Today the way we track threats in geosynchronous orbit is by basically points of light, and as we take a picture of the sky and dwell on that part of the sky, [we know] things that are moving are satellites, things that are stationary are stars … Through our points of light and various other means, we make inferences on what a particular [foreign] satellite can do.

A picture is worth a thousand inferences because we can see literally what that [foreign] satellite looks like, and you can effectively reverse-engineer and understand what the capabilities are … to a much greater extent than you can today

Gen. William Shelton, the head of Air Force Space Command, quoted in the Stars and Stripes story Air Force launching satellites to spy on other satellites, before the launch of the Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program satellites.

IBM Ad by bustbright on Flickr: “new electronic map will show the pilot where in the world he is”.
I’ve posted ads from that set before, but there are so many I’m sure I’ll post more in the future, too.

Lego Star Wars ^W Trek

Question: Why can’t LEGO do Star Trek stuff? Like, do you know how much fun I’d have putting together my very own Enterprise or Klingon bird of prey??

They’re all over LOTR and Star Wars — why not show a little love for a nearly fifty-year old franchise?

Kre-O ended up with the Star Trek licence, producing a few sets including an Enterprise and a Bird-Of-Prey. Obviously, they’re not Lego, but hey, they’re “compatible building bricks”.

Of course, nobody’s stopping you building Trek sets with your own bricks, like this (as seen in the Rockefeller Center’s Lego Store, and award-winning at that).
