I honestly think Trump wouldn't have done, out of his good heart, half the things Hillary did in this movie. What an effort, what an explosive lack of shame, what a demonstrably lack of anything remotely resembling human decency, day in, day out. They're the scummiest couple of thieves in history. And most successful ones too, by far.

A couple of weeks ago, there was a high-def 11 minutes long video on Youtube with a time-lapse map of Europe from 1000 AD to 2003. It condensed a thousand years of history into a short and neat animation, somewhat akin to what Sid Meyer would've come up with if he had the patience to spend the million hours it must've taken to track 9000 border changes.

After it made its appearance on G+, it spread quickly and newspapers all over the world started writing about it. That same day, just before the clip went completely Kony from New York to Nepal, Centennial Software, who made the 3MB program the video was captured from, made Youtube remove the video. They could've gotten free advertising worth a train load of gold bars, but their boss decided to ride the copyright train instead. Here's him right here: http://i.imgur.com/PuBkZ.jpg

As a replacement, they put together and uploaded three short, horribly pixelated, unwatchable low resolution videos. Liveleak has a copy of the long HD version, but it's not much help because it's not possible to see the year ticker under their logo. As a result of these misfortunes, I've re-upped the original two HD clips to Youtube. They're unlisted and can't be found without the URLs below, so there's a chance they'll stay below the radar for a while. You can download them with keepvid.com or Antbar. If you'd like to zoom in and explore areas in your own time, consider buying the program. Unsurprisingly, it has a quirky GUI, but it's very useful nonetheless. You can get it here: http://www.clockwk.com/p1.asp?x=1u

Short version, 3:24: Animated map 1/2
Full version, 11:02, with year/event tickers : Animated map 2/2

These videos cover the last 1000 years. I had a look around and found one that complements it nicely, save for a 4-500 year gap: Ancient Western Civilizations Timeline 3500BC-476AD

Advertisement for the new David model by Weyland Industries. They did a fine job bringing Stanley Kubrick back from the dead to make it. And I'm sure the next Alien movie, Prometheus, for which this a trailer, is in safe hands too. Ridley Scott did after all make the first one.

Michael Fassbender is the 'artificial human' in this movie (they don't like being called robots). He was recently replaced with Colin Farrel in the upcoming remake of Total Recall. Mr. Farrel is obviously not satisfied with almost single-handedly sinking Oliver Stone's Alexander, he's now moving on to wreak havoc on the remake of one of the greatest classics in science fiction.

@annjarman Oh, no. You weren't the only one by far.  He was horrific in that role.

Excellent ad for windmills, though probably 50 years ahead of its time. The nuclear industry is not that easily demolished, in fact, it's not just trying to keep green energy at bay but also "clean" fission (thorium), by lobbying governments. Someone once had the idea of making all parlamentary representatives wear the names of their sponsors on their jackets, like the Formula 1 drivers. Enlightening as that might've been, it'll happen about the same time Hell starts using windmills to power its heaters.

Additionally, where they got their money invested. Wall Street bloggers inform their readers where they invest in order to avoid suspicion of corruption, that principle should be ten times more important for all the democratically elected day traders on Capitol Hill, who "rig the game" for a living.

If you haven't seen this clip yet, you've missed a hilarious couple of minutes explaining everything you need about the SOPA spectacle.

The most entertaining hour you'll spend in a while. The before/after-poll was devastating to one of the parties, I'm sure you can guess which.

Elizabeth Warren/Pochahontas, who we all loved and trusted, who suddenly and out of nowhere betrayed Bernie Sanders and the country like Obama, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen Degeneres and a lot of other people turning out to be deranged facade psychopaths one by one, did it differently than them. She did with such lack of grace she's become an icon of how a politician knows better but choses money and fame instead. Like Hillary, she's lied all her life so it's nothing new to her. In two years, when her seat is up for grabs, she's going to get demolished and nobody's ever gonna hear from her again.

At last, someone is planning to start mining asteroids orbiting Earth. They'll probably use robots so simple they'd lose a game of chess to Mitt Romney, there's no reason to send people or Deep Blue. We're running out of basic elements, especially rare Earth elements. It's already making the tech industry worry to death, and kids will find there is no more helium for their balloons in 2020. From the video: "One asteroid may contain more platinum than has been mined in all of history".

Edit: They got +Larry Page and +Eric Schmidt on board. Who else would have the foresight to invest in this? Certainly not +NASA, 8 years of GOP have seen to that.

Edit 2: As pointed out below :)
 
Planetary Resources' mission is mine near-Earth asteroids for raw materials, ranging from water to precious metals. Through the development of cost-effective exploration technologies, the company is poised to initiate prospecting missions targeting resource-rich asteroids that are easily accessible

Resource extraction from asteroids will deliver multiple benefits to humanity and could be valued at billions of dollars annually. The effort will tap into the high concentration of precious metals found on asteroids and provide a sustainable supply to the ever-growing population on Earth.

The company was founded by space visionary Peter H. Diamandis, M.D. and leading commercial space entrepreneur Eric Anderson, and is supported by an impressive investor and advisor group, including Google's Larry Page & Eric Schmidt, Ph.D.; film maker & explorer James Cameron; Chairman of Intentional Software Corporation and Microsoft's former Chief Software Architect Charles Simonyi, Ph.D.; Founder of Sherpalo and Google Board of Directors founding member K. Ram Shriram; and Chairman of Hillwood and The Perot Group Ross Perot, Jr.

Oh my, I took for granted it was the asteroid belt, which is what you'd think from looking at the thumbnail above. Somehow my brain excluded all references to NEOs. I always thought they were asteroids zooming by at insane speeds, not advisable to fish for. A scene of Donald Duck being hauled by a whale comes to mind. :p

Indeed, the video is compressed extremely badly. With the budget they presumably had available, they ought to at the very least have found a professional.

Colbert's God Machine button has moved on to advertising. I won't be surprised if it earns a tip of the hat for it.

I wondered about that too, maybe the spectators were told to brace themselves for "something", but were genuinely shocked when they saw how much effort and craziness they actually put into it. :p

Thanks to +Philip Plait for pointing out the new and improved upgrade of The Scale of the Universe. It truly puts you in your place in the cosmos. (It's a monstrous chunk of Flash, so give it plenty of time to load. It will be worth your while.)
Zoom from the edge of the universe to the quantum foam of spacetime and learn about everything in between.
