It'd be pretty awesome if we landed on the moon again too.

You want the whole world to be Detroit? Hrm



Bank of Canada bans image of Asian-looking woman from new $100 banknotes
This is even more amusing than the (inaccurate) headline suggests. Gotta love focus groups.

So NBA political donations. Some surprises in there:

I didn't think Riles would be a Repiblican.

Riley looks like a classic Republican.

Not very relevant to the story, but it is totally and utterly astonishing, and a testament to the depths of human stupidity that the republican party still has supporters, let alone it being a sizeable portion of the population.

What's with the "non-contesting"?  It's most unlike him.  Trying to save face by denying them the chance to prove the dope charges?

I guess they ban him on principle. Does this block hom from Triathlons as well?

Sounds like it to me too. Which if you look at the circumstantial evidence there is no other explanation for his success. It's a dirty, dirty sport.

I don't think it's at all damning that he can't be assed anymore to fight the same allegations he's been fighting for over a decade.

Well, they are going ahead with the arbitration, so if he was doing this to avoid the testimony of the ten witnesses and the physical evidence from 2009 and 2010 he's failed (according to the NYT article I read this morning).

A friend of mine told me about this story yesterday.  I hadn't laughed this hard in a very long time.  

An old lady at some village near Zaragosa in Spain, sad to see the neglect towards her local church 19th century fresco of Jesus, after taking painting lessons, was granted permission to carry out the restoration herself.  The results need to be seen to be believed.  It is the most hilarious case of "close enough" I have ever seen.  There is now apparently a growing group of fans for the restored work (I count myself among them) who want to keep it that way.  In fact ... they better.

More on the story here.

Voila!  Check out the before and after of the Jesus fresco.
