You've probably heard by now. Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, has died. He was fatally wounded by a stingray in the Great Barrier Reef. My condolences to Irwin's wife and children.

Here's a video of what increasing entropy looks like. It was made using the game Trackmania Sunrise. The creators of the video raced the same course 1,000 times, and then made a video combining all 1,000 runs on one screen. Awesome video, too bad about the music.

Help end genital mutilation in the US. Find the facts at MGMbill.org.

Save the Internet
! Right now, Congress is pushing a bill that would end network neutrality on the Internet. This means that the companies that run the backbones of the Internet, companies including AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast, would be able to give preferential treatment to the traffic of one company over another. This could easily be abused, and end the Internet as we know it. Microsoft could pay to have their search service load faster than Google. Blogs like mine wouldn't be able to afford the cost of a preferred connection, and would take forever to load, perhaps not loading at all. Please sign the petition and contact your local representative.
