Playing with your food? Shooting things at the White House? It seems like a recipe for disaster and/or arrest, but somehow Joey Hudy managed to play with his food while hanging out at the Executive Mansion and still get this look of amazement out of the president. The 14-year-old Phoenix resident designed this Extreme Marshmallow Cannon and demonstrated it at the second White House Science Fair Tuesday. (via)

gay news!

Proposition 8, the voter-approved law banning same-sex marriage in California, has been declared unconstitutional by a federal appeals court. Three judges in San Francisco today ruled 2-1 that a 2010 lower court ruling should stand because Prop 8 violates the civil rights of gays and lesbians. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean everyone can just go out and get married now: Supporters of Prop 8 plan to appeal to a larger panel of Ninth Circuit judges and ultimately to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.

iphone question

tomorrow, i'll finally be retiring my blackberry and entering 2010 by upgrading to an iphone. you're welcome. now. for some reason, every single iphone owner i've asked this question (liz, john, grace, etc.) has some lame excuse about why they can't answer it. maybe you can help.

can you just tell me how much data you use per month on average? i reckon i'll have to pick a plan, and i just want to be prepared.

thanks in advance for being soooooo helpful!

UPDATE! i just talked to verizon and they are going to let me keep on rolling with my unlimited family plan as well. thanks, dad!

Budweiser is gathering groups of fans and bringing them to unsuspecting rec hockey games to give the players an nhl experience.

It reminds me of the improv everywhere story on TAL where they got a lot of people to come to a local band's show give them the show of a lifetime. Except, those guys were really bummed about it.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Here's a review of Jay-Z's show last night at Carnegie Hall. i was going to go, but then the Voice was on and tickets cost thousands of dollars.

In the 1920s, Asahel Curtis was commissioned by the Washington state Department of Conservation and Development to create a series of colorized lantern slides for public presentations, designed to promote tourism and immigration to the area. The resulting hand-colored slides show interesting moments of the region's agriculture, industry and recreation. (via)
