free cards but better

So.. I continue to just steal my blog posts from awesome sites like boing boing.. and although I think I have a readership of around 12 or so I still want to keep this link for myself... so check out a great way to get some cool cards made up and your first 10 free if you have a Flickr Pro account.

BoingBoing snipit:

"Moo prints beautiful little calling-cards for kids and the young-at-heart. Each card can have a different back, and the undersized cards are just the right size for your name, email address and a URL or two."

link to the free 10 cards for Flickr pro users:

I did it.. can't wait.. just 10 biz days

Death, Taxes, Terrorism... bullshit

These two posts should make everyone wonder why?

... So these two post found on Boing Boing (among other sites) should make us all wonder why our tax money is spent like it is.

The first is a simplified chart of what americans should realy be scared of by amount of deaths a year (sources listed on site).

Part of the article: "Comparing official mortality data with the number of Americans who have been killed inside the United States by terrorism since the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma reveals that scores of threats are far more likely to kill an American than any terrorist -- at least, statistically speaking.

In fact, your appendix is more likely to kill you than al-Qaida is."

Wired.com Article

The next is a great visual chart our federal budget, just click

What do you think?

If nothing else look where all our money goes... some people would say its to keep the status quo... is it realy worth keeping.. can't that money be spent better?

Hell If I know... it just seems like we spend more money keeping people from what we have and it would be cheaper to spend it on making EVERYONE happy...

Cleaner Energy
Combat Disease
Fight Hunger
Stop Homelessness
Stop Child Labor
Rouge Asteroids

ok, enough.. time to slip back into the apathy that gets me through my days (and everyone elses).

Books in Omaha


Jackson Street Booksellers in Omaha NE is probaly the coolest book store I've ever been to. They did overcharge me by accident and it'll get cleared up for sure but I think it's just added to it's charm... go there and sort though the stacks and stacks of books for some great out of print and hard to find treasures. I held myself back and only bought 3 books... a book on Russian Art, Asian wash paintings and a book on Fashion design which will probably end up with Tawny. I did look or a book on loral patterns but my bladder got the best of me and I had to take off
