You know, I was never really a big Shatner fan back in the day. But between
William Shatner sings to George Lucas during a tribute to Lucas.
You have to admit it. The prequels may have sucked. But they sucked Lucas's way.
The folks at Lego have outdone themselves. They have created an eight foot long Republic Attack Cruiser, and put it up for auction on eBay. The opening bid was $2,500, and it's now up to an even $10,000, with 8 days left in the auction.
The best part? 100% of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity.
Tonight, I was hoping to finish this stupid treatise on all of my pe-employment opinions on eBay's business model. And after working on it for the past three hours, I'm almost done. Just two or three more paragraphs and a bunch of proofing and it'll be ready for prime time. But I seriously need to get to sleep, so I'll have to finish it later.
In the meantime, here's something incredibly cool that I happened to run across. Maybe it's just the former aspiring architect in me, but I've always been fascinated with cutaway illustrations. Not only because they look cool, but because I marvel at how they can get that much detail assembled in scale and presented in a manner that makes sense to the non-technical viewer.
So you can imagine how cool I think this Demonstration For Cutaway Technical Illustrations is. Between the detailed info on the process that goes into building one of these illustrations and the super-detailed-zoom, this stupid site had me grinning from ear to ear. Can someone remind me again why I abandoned architecture as a career goal? Oh, right. I had yet to get my hands on AutoCAD and I sat right next to the ammonia machine for three years straight. That's enough to turn someone off of a really cool career track pretty quickly...
