Further proof that nature is crazy.
"For too long, game designers have been creatively stymied by a mammary-imaging technology only capable of rendering one type of breast—a heaving pair of massive, gravity-defying, torpedo-shaped bosoms," said Warren Hood, developer of the new Vex9 graphics card, which has finally enabled video game wire-frame artists to digitally sculpt breasts as small as B-cups. "At long last, we can give die-hard gamers the level of realism they've been looking for."
I guess I knew there was a Mexican Sesame Street, I just didn't know what it was called. ¡Plaza Sesamo! In any case, los Muppets want you to lavarte tus manos:
The Muppets of Plaza Sesamo and Mexican celebrities are addressing the new flu emergency in a series of pubic service announcements (PSA) aimed at kids. Sesame Workshop and Mexico's Grupo Televisa have produced four PSAs featuring the Plaza Sesamo Muppet's Pancho and Lola as well as celebrities Lucero, Jorge Poza and Adrian Uribe, which empower kids with things they can do during this period. The PSAs, which have already begun airing on Televisa, encourage kids to tell a parent if you feel sick, and if you are sick don't go to school or outside, cover your mouth with a tissue or arm if you sneeze or cough and throw away that tissue in a covered trash can, and of course, wash your hands with soap and water several times a day for at least 20 second. Plaza Sesamo's Education and Research team worked with Mexico's Ministry of Health to develop the PSA scripts. The PSAs are being offered to several government organizations to extend the message in Mexico including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Government Workers ' Social Security and Services Institute (el ISSSTE) and Mexico City's public transit system.

"Our results aren't that conservatives don't get the joke. It's that how you see the joke depends on who you are," says Kristen Landreville, a PhD student in communications at Ohio State University and one of three co-authors. "If you're conservative, you think the joke's on liberals because he's openly making fun of liberals."
Snowe criticized party leadership for failing to change its tone after Republicans lost six Senate seats in the 2006 election.
“I happened to win with 74 percent of the vote in a blue-collar state, but no one asked me, 'How did you do it?'” she said. “Seems to me that would have been the first question that would have come from the Republican Party to find out so we could avoid further losses."
“Ultimately, we're heading to having the smallest political tent in history, the way things are unfolding,” Snowe said.
But even if this virus were to peter out soon, there is a strong possibility it would only go underground, quietly continuing to infect some people while becoming better adapted to humans, and then explode around the world.
What happens next is chiefly up to the virus....
Tony Millionaire will be at the Fantagraphics store in Georgetown for a release party/book signing/art exhibition for the new Maakies Treasury (which apparently has an introduction by Dave Eggers). They're showing clips from the "Drinky Crow Show" along with ten years of original strips. The show stays up until June 10.
