The "bemusement park," which opened Thursday, is described by its mysterious street-artist creator, Banksy, as "a festival of art, amusements, and entry-level anarchism." Dismaland is located in the English town of Weston-super-mare in a disused swimming facility. According to the park's droll website, legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation are strictly prohibited from entering.

...Jabba got subtitles. Greedo got subtitles. But poor R2-D2, he never got subtitles, so the astromech droid spends six movies bleeping around with the audience left to guess at what's on his mind. Until now....

The new BigQuery is easier to use, more powerful, and more open. With new features like User-Defined Functions and increased query limits, you can start solving your #bigdata problems the same way we do. http://goo.gl/Llw6s3
