Ooh. =:D Ghostbusters: the Video Game.

Fancy moving to Canada? Calculate your score.

Via timberwoof, perhaps the most savvy electoral candidate the US will see this cycle: Sean Tevis, "an Information Architect in Kansas running for State Representative. I've decided to 'retire' my current State Representative. I'm going to win. This is my story (XKCD homage style) so far."

You may recall there was a proposal to name a San Francisco sewage plant after Mr Bush. It's just been announced the motion is on the ballot for November. ^_^

Somewhere to visit in Second Sweden: Disorientation Station, as Garth Goode puts it. =:) Set high above the sim is a giant six-faceted die, which invites you to come inside. It's then that you find out it reorients itself every sixty seconds, leaving you still affixed to the same surface you arrived on, with a fully furnished interior for each face.

What looks like a very handy tool, especially for LSL newcomers: Scratch for Second Life, permitting the composition of scripts by assembling basic building blocks.

According to Bettina Tizzy, Rezzable's art showpiece sim Black Swan, acting as a test for whether people will pay a one-off fee for admission (L$199), is currently free until August 4th. ^_^

Quite a perceptive comparison of recent sim openings, highlighting several important ways in which different approaches were taken to attempt to ensure a successful debut, and sustained popularity.

The 1913 MA marriage law I mentioned the other day? It's going down: "The Massachusetts Senate voted Tuesday to repeal the law. The House is expected to vote this week." (Well, maybe a bit later..)

Porn for the day: Two for One, recommended to anyone who might enjoy a nice, straightforward latex TF. ^_^

Little bit of LJ news: Basic accounts are coming back. They're still wondering what sort of advertising will get thrown in, though.

Doctor Who may be over for a while, but there is another season of the Sarah Jane Adventures to look forward to later this year. ^_^

How's your French? Several points to be picked up in the language section.. and it's not a difficult language, in the general scheme of things, for an English speaker, given its Romance language nature. (Not all that practical, I'll grant, but I did enjoy taking Latin for that reason - it was geekily fun to see how its influences later spread around the Mediterranean)
matter of opinion. I had a much easier time with German compared to French. French seemed to have so many "exceptions to the rule" that the rules seemed useless, not to mention playing guess which letters are silent.
Hehe! Okay, true enough - there's quite a bit of irregularity in French (though I suppose English must reign supreme in that regard, being the ultimate mongrel =:), whereas - in my tragically limited understanding - German is about as logical in pronunciation as Japanese, at least as far as the official dialects go.

(Though the northern "st" coming out as "sht" does come to mind, but then, yes, dialects.. I'm thinking of Hamburg, in my case. I'd love to get back again sometime, but then, there are so many places I'm itching to see again.. I'd love to get back to Westvleteren for the obvious reason, I'd really enjoy touring around auberges for their food, I want to tour Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos, I had a lot of fun in Sydney.. oh, for an affordable all-you-can-fly ticket =:)
