There was a dearth of links over the weekend, kinda sad. Here's what popped on my radar this morning:
Angelina Jolie is competing with meta for large Thai-themed tattoo on back
New Oakley 'Thump' glasses with builtin mp3 player: this is getting news because Lance Armstrong was sporting them for a photo. For cyclists and other athletes, the 'Thump' glasses could be an ideal solution (assuming that they come in less ugly models): no extra cords, no armband, lightweight. My tiny 128MB Sony mp3 player gets the nod over the iPod when I'm cycling, as I prefer it's lower weight and higher probability of crash survival, but the cord running down my back is still very annoying. Sony did have an mp3 player they released that was built into the headphones, but the headphones were not the ideal style for exercising.
Reuters U.S. Mulling How to Delay Nov. Vote in Case of Attack: IMHO, this isn't as bad as it seems, yet. We should figure out how the US should respond in the event of a terrorist attack during the elections, and this debate should occur in the public's eye and far in advance of the election. If an attack did occur, then it would be the case that those immediately affected by the attack should still be given a fair opportunity to vote, but if they are allowed to vote at a later date, after other elections have been tallied, then their results could be considered dubious. However, entrusting the sanctity of our vote to Tom Ridge seems even more dubious.
Neil Gaiman will be at Comic-Con after all (though only one session)
