* FIFA may be cracking on goal line technology.

* As Ireland’s experience shows, austerity makes no sense as an economic policy during a downturn.

* Boing Boing highlights Buzz Aldrin’s UFO claims.

* Yglesias points out that the Presidential Succession Act makes no sense. When I found out that Robert Byrd was third in line for the presidency a few years ago I was completely aghast, and I remain thus.

* The other day we were wondering why LEGO has no real presence within the Toy Story universe. This is probably why.

* And because you demanded it: Hot Tub Time Machine sequel fodder.

  1. Thanks for the Ireland article. I was over there when the Bord Snip Nua report came out and the austerity measures were just getting underway. The national press was fully backing them, despite their stupidity. Now, a year later, all of Europe is backing austerity.

  2. 1. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was surprisingly awesome. Totally worth your time. Don’t believe the trailers.

    2. BBC America just started airing “James May’s Toy Stories,” an hour-long show where James May (from Top Gear) plays with toys. In the first episode, he built a full-sized house out of Lego. It was fantastic.
