Must See Youtube! Miss USA on Math

Posted: October 1st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Must See Youtube! Miss USA on Math

Seems to be a bit of a theme this weekend, people speaking when they really should just NOT! We’re  unsure if this is a “They Said What, Shut the F_ck Up, a Bipolar Blond Moment  or just a part of an ongoing American themed dullness. Whatever, it’s sure to put a smile on your face. In the original video, Miss Universe contestants were asked what they thought of Evolution being taught in schools – we’ve  included this vid – the answer were astounding.  We grant this was a tricky question, a toughy even for someone with a fully functioning brain. As if that wasn’t funny enough though, they’ve now been asked if MATH should be taught in schools??? As always a picture is worth a thousand words. Check the Video [Please watch it seated] Here > 


Jamie McMahon's Acoustic Alarm

Posted: October 1st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Jamie McMahon's Acoustic Alarm

A good sleep-in is a wonderfilled piece of bedroom life, an out of the ordinary lapse in daily life. Imagine having that same zen-ness in your everyday waking life. Well Jamie McMahon imagined that very same thought. The Acoustic Alarm. Once you get over the intrinsic beauty of this waxed birch box and allow it to make it’s music, you’ll wonder how you ever got out of bed for anything else. Acoustic Alarm is the creation of product designer Jamie McMahon. “This is basically a project using psychology and seeing what affect music and sound has on us. Music affects us all in different ways.” McMahon says on his blog. “The Acoustic Alarm scraps the annoying morning alarm, and replaces it with a relaxing acoustic tune, which has been designed for the user to customise the tone of their alarm by adjusting the tuning pegs.”Unfortunately, it’s a one of, it’s simply a thought – more zen – there aren’t any plans to produce this piece of joy just yet.

READ A BOOK! Mark Mazower: Dark Continent

Posted: September 25th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on READ A BOOK! Mark Mazower: Dark Continent

I would normally churn through a book in a day, not skimming but reading. Mazower’s Dark Continent took 3 days and I’m now on my 3rd round, simply, I LOVE THIS BOOK. The premise is one that I’ve always found arduous to put into words: Our now perspective of history has little to do with the events that took place, the events that created what we now call history. Mazower invites current day Europeans to come to embrace the latest governing ethos – The European Union – to come alive in their continent . Nations subscribing to it, distinct in language, religion, law, and historical experience, have little to guide them in their adventure into the unknown except the previous collective experiments with which, in this century, the continent has been hounded near to death. In todays Europe this is more relevant than ever before.  Dark Continent provides an alternative history of the twentieth century, one in which the triumph of democracy was anything but a forgone conclusion and fascism and communism provided rival political solutions that battled and sometimes triumphed in an effort to determine the course the continent would take. Mark Mazower strips away myths that have comforted us since World War II, revealing Europe as an entity constantly engaged in a bloody project of self-invention.  Here is a history not of inevitable victories and forward marches, but of narrow squeaks and unexpected twists, where townships boast a bronze of Mussolini on horseback one moment, only to melt it down and recast it as a pair of noble partisans the next.  Unflinching, intelligent, Dark Continent provides a provocative vision of Europe’s past, present, and future!  M★C READ MORE

Sporting fans are a passionate bunch, like postal workers – rain, snow or shine – they seem to put up with most anything for love of their game! Australian Rugby League fans are no exception. In possibly the gretaest case of mentardation David Gallop – CEO of Australia’s National Rugby League – on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 compared Melbourne Storm fans passion for their team to terrorists!?  “I never really go for that whole passion line, I mean, terrorists are passionate about what they do and, you know, that doesn’t make it right.”  Gallop blurted his dumbfounding line in a radio interview the day after presenting the Storm with the J J Giltinan Shield – minor premiership winners – Before Gallop had a chance to remove his foot from his mouth, he capped of the unbelievable statement with “Passion is a bad excuse and it gets used too much in sport” Back that truck up! Isn’t Sport Without Passion just a board game? B★B READ MORE
