August Photo-A-Day Challenge (2012)

This is the end result of a Twitter photography project I undertook during August this year. The task was simple: each day, take one photo that fits the theme with a mobile phone and upload it to Twitter. Simple, but daunting. It was a task in and of itself to remember the project and find suitable subjects for each photo. Regardless, I finished the requisite 31 photos and compiled them into a collage that fits the month’s calendar.

Senators Want to “Blow ISIS Out of the Water” with “Fancy Memes”

Because Congress and Hollywood both know to leverage the power of the Internet </sarcasm>

Lawmakers despairing over the Islamic State’s success in recruiting on social media proposed that the U.S. government create more viral memes, possibly with Hollywood’s help.

There’s A [Tropical] Storm Coming, Mr. Wayne

My latest bit of silliness cooked up at 3am upon hearing that Gordon has been upgraded to a tropical storm. Batten down the hatches, there’s a storm coming!

What About Me: An Infographic (August 2012)

Here is the third installment in what is, definitively, a series. I’ll do these as long as the website is available, then start extrapolating some information after I have at least a year’s worth (or as many as I can manage).

Judge OK’s Nudity At TSA Checkpoint

“I was mostly motivated by the absurdity of it all. The irony that they wanna see me naked. But I don’t get to take my clothes off?”

–John Brennan

Score one for the First Amendment

So this 50-year-old hipster, John Brennan was taking a business trip from Portland to San Jose when he was selected for the TSA’s favourite controversial toy: the “nudie scanner.” Well, instead of letting Big Brother take a naked photo of him to sell to some dubious website, he chose the manual option.  Long story short, the TSA agent found traces of nitrates on his gloves after the screening.  Nitrates, among other, more common sources of exposure, are found in explosives.  Mr. Brennan was in the process of being detained when he decided that he had nothing to hide, and exposed everything right there in the terminal.  Consequently, he was arrested and charged with indecent exposure.

In a rational decision by a local court judge, Brennan was found not guilty on the basis that his actions constituted peaceful protest and were protected under the Bill of Rights.  Score one for the good guys?
