Craig R. and Costa Rica Jones both sent us the link to this amazing video clip: Life in Foreclosure Alley. Do you remember what I wrote about “Midnight Flits”? Don’t miss the part near the end where they spray paint a dead lawn green. Its all about “curb appeal.”

Michael Z. Williamson sent us this video link showing home-brew autonomous gun developments. This kid could get a DARPA contract! Warning: Attempting this with a firearm would be an invitation to a lawsuit.

Do not attempt any such experiments!
