You Remembered

with one comment

* Childhood dreams confirmed: You can jump the flagpole in Super Mario Brothers.

* Early reports that the top kill had worked may have been premature.

* Twenty-two mile plume of oil slinking towards Alabama.

* In what seems to have been something of a surprise vote, a repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has passed the Senate Armed Services Committee, and now appears in the latest defense appropriations bill as well. It’s a few years late, but it’s finally happening.

* If I’m reading this right, in fourteen years I will be president.

* Solved and unsolved Lost mysteries. Life with Hurley and Ben on the Island.

* ABC is considering rebooting Alias, sans Rambaldi. I must be in the minority that thought Rambaldi was the only good part of that show.

* All but confirmed: Joss Whedon will direct The Avengers.

* In the late 1950s, psychologist Milton Rokeach was gripped by an eccentric plan. He gathered three psychiatric patients, each with the delusion that they were Jesus Christ, to live together for two years in Ypsilanti State Hospital to see if their beliefs would change. Via MeFi.

* I still remember how scandalized I was when I moved to Ohio and discovered that some states elect their judges. It’s simply nuts.

* For the past six years he had been studying for his PhD in the history of homicide in 19th century England from 1847-99, comparing Victorian investigative techniques with modern policing methods. There’s no way to frame this sad story about a British criminology Ph.D. student accused of murdering three women that doesn’t seem like I’m trying to make a joke out of it. Via.

* And Eyemaze has a new game, Transform. Jay Is Games has the walkthrough.

  1. I must be in the minority that thought Rambaldi was the only good part of that show.

    Yes, that’s a very small minority. As much as I liked Alias throughout its run, the mythos is eventually what choked the show to death, I think.

    That, of course, doesn’t make the idea of a reboot a good idea.
