A pair of brass …

So I was reading a little bit about General Petraeus today in the New York Times. I took a quick look at his Wikipedia article and found something very interesting, his wife.

While a cadet at the US Military Academy, aka West Point, he dated the commanding officer’s daughter!!


For a 19/20-year old cadet to date the daughter of the three-star general that ran West Point must have been one hell of a pressure cooker. But not only did he date her, he married her two months after graduation!

Colour me amazed…

I’m not sure what to make of this…

but Club for Growth (the radical Republican tax cut advocacy group) just linked to a YouTube video I made for my company, explaining “What is a prediction market?”.

I somehow doubt they know that they are currently featuring on their front page a video created by someone who’s a strong supporter of Barack Obama.

Like I said… I’m not sure what to think…

(If you’d like to watch the video, click here to get to it on YouTube.)

Must-read blog

If you’re looking for a fun, low-traffic post that is both thought-provoking, funny and simply a must-read, try Ironic Sans.

I’ve talked before about the plugin he’s made to “uncensor the Internet”, but he also posts random cool ideas like the Bulbdial clock here:


Another very cool recent post was on courtroom artists, of all things. He showed the pictures they’ve drawn and also the things they draw and paint outside the courtroom.

I’m a huge fan, and hope you check it out yourself!
