Graphic artist Bjorn Hurri has given us some amazing renditions of our favorite Star Wars characters with a full Steam Punk conversion. Copper Plating, gears, steam stacks and leather give our space heroes an antiquated feel that is simply amazing. Bjorn also has some other characters yet to be completed that are still amazing even though they’re still works in progress. I certainly look forward to seeing these ones finished!

FOUND by Travis in Baltimore, Maryland Found in the gutter on Ramsay Street. I am most struck by the comment about the stove. It seems to say, “Look, I’m not really thrilled about the dope-shooting in my house, but I could live with it if you were just a little more conscientious about turning off the stove when you were done.” Some people are never satisfied. No doubt, if they did turn off the stove, “Me” would start complaining about the needles left lying around.
Sooner or later, all my conversations inevitably turn to food. Don’t believe me? Call me up sometime and try to, say, sell me some insurance. I guarantee that before we get off the phone, I’ll be giving you my recipe for blackberry jam.

We don't know exactly whose "house rules" these are, but we're coming over for their next party. In fact, these rules could really be defined as "life rules." They cover all the bases: no fighting, breaking stuff, or sexual assaults (of course), plenty of rapping, kissing, and cookies (definitely) and limited use of the homeowner's Nintendo 64 games (because come on, it's 2010). The most ridiculous has to be the last one, which advocates anyone caught masturbating to keep doing so.

first image 'american kills' installation 'american kills' by chilean-born new york based artist sebastian errazuriz is a public installation showcasing the suicide rates of US soldiers. after searching on official war sites on the internet, he accidentally found out that 2 times more american soldiers had died in 2009 by committing suicide than those killed during that same year in the war in iraq; an alarming comparison that errazuriz had personally never read or heard about before. according to the artist, a first google search showed only reports of media alarm about suicide rates, but the information was always comfortably presented divided into months and generally separated by statistics from the army, navy or air-force. 'when I first found the overall statistics summed the 304 suicides by US soldiers during 2009, I was shocked.

1. Anthropomimetic Machines No matter how closely a robot resembles a human on the outside, if you crack it open, the jumble of wires is unlikely to bear much resemblance to our insides. A group of European researchers aims to bridge that gap--its robot prototype is anthropomimetic, meaning it mimics the human form. There's a skeleton made of thermoplastic polymer, actuators that correspond to each muscle and kiteline as tendons.
A mother passing by her daughter’s bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, “Mom.” With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands: Dear Mom: It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you.
The atheists continue to believe that they are free from brainwashing and can live under their own accord, yet they are slaves to their own weakness as they continue to argue, debate or rather, "convert" those that follow theistic beliefs. Christians are always perceived as the ones obsessed with converting others to their religion, and here the atheists work to a similar end: converting the religious to "non-religion". You change the way you play, but it seems the game remains the same. Right, so not debating anything in order to avoid disagreements is better? fark off, what a load of apathetic bullshit. Faith is necessary in certain circumstances.
