Cameras That Yell at You

Check out this terrible idea. This town in England has security cameras to catch people doing bad things, and they have the added feature of a loudspeaker through which whoever’s watching the camera feed can yell at you to stop.

Authorities are confounded by “Moose” the reverse graffiti artist. He partially cleans grime to create his work. Nothing illegal about that, right?

Stephen Baldwin Still Craves It

Stephen Baldwin: What being born-again means for me is that I’m having so much fun in this interview that we’re not going to go out and get an 8-ball of blow tonight and go crazy. That’s what born again means to me: Inasmuch as I’d like to do that, gosh, I’ll just go home and read some scripture with the wife.
Radar: The 8-ball sounds like fun, though.
SB: Of course it does!

Bill Maher Interview

The Onion AV Club interviews Bill Maher.

But there’s no doubt about it, it’s a stupid country. It was in The New York Times last week that when they asked the question “Do you think human beings evolved from an earlier species of animal?” the only Western nation that responded “no” more often than America was Turkey. Thirty different countries, including Bulgaria. Ooh, that one hurt. I got to say, that hurt. That was like a knife in the gut. Even Bulgaria gets it about evolution more than we do. That’s a stupid country.

Account Balances of the World

More ranking of countries: Who has the lowest account balance? Which is to say, who has the highest trade deficit? Once again, it’s not even close. Is there maybe a relationship between having a lot of billionaires and having a high trade deficit? Well, the distant second on billionaires, Germany, has the third highest account balance/lowest trade deficit, so maybe not.

How Many Billionaires

Look at this chart that shows how many billionaires live in each country. I’ll ruin the surprise: the US has the most. By a long shot.
