The Writer is an 18th century humanoid automaton that can be programmed to write short messages with a pen. Created by Swiss watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the mechanical automaton is made of 6,000 parts and is controlled by wheel that can be programmed with text up to 40 characters in length. You can see it in action in this clip from the BBC documentary “Mechanical Marvels: Clockwork Dreams.” The Writer and two other automata by Jaquet-Droz are on display at Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

We've trained rats to find their way through a maze to get to food, but can you train a dog to negotiate a maze to find his beloved master? Andrew Himelson and his family plowed a maze through the deep snow in their yard to find out. Geno is a clever dog and promptly achieved his goal by cheating. In later sessions, he's learned the maze, and seems to understand the game, but is still not above cheating when the situation calls for it. That's a good dog.

Have a nice long holiday weekend, did you? Sweet, me too. Unfortunately, we are now faced with the prospect of going back down into the salt mines to eke out our meager living... or, you could just lay around in your undies all day and watch movies. This week's seduction for the lethargic is Kevin Smith's surprisingly spiritual critique of the beaurocracy between man and god, 1999's Dogma. Stars Matt & Ben, George Carlin, Linda Fiorentino, Jason Lee, and (of course) Jason & Kev.

One of the oldest tricks in the file-sharing world is to relabel material as something else in order to annoy downloaders. Those downloading Johan Kaos’s movie from The Pirate Bay get to see 10 minutes of the production for free, followed by an estimated one hour and twenty minutes of the director’s shaven scrotum.

Riding a five-ton elephant, whom she called ‘my brother’, chilling with a cheetah or hugging a giant bullfrog as if it were a Teddy bear. The childhood of a French girl Tippi Degre sounds more like a newer version of Mowgli, rather than something real. A white child, she was born in Namibia to French wildlife photographer parents, and grew up in Africa. Tippi spent her whole childhood playing with wild animals including lion cubs, a mongoose, a snake, a cheetah, baby zebra, giraffes and crocodiles.
The little girl saw nothing unusual about her company: “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends,” she once said.
Tippi is now 23 years old, and the only child to wildlife photographer parents Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre, who published her photos in a book called Tippi of Africa. “It was magical to be able to be free in this nature with this child. She was a very lucky little girl – she was born and raised until the age of 10 totally in the wild.” said Sylvie.

Once weekly I dump out all the videos I didn't get around to posting over the previous week, and today is the day that happens. Since I've been playing a lot of GTAV lately, there are a few GTA-related videos in the bunch - I've segregated them into their own little section so you non-players don't have to pick and choose around them. LET'S GO!

This is an interesting list of the most "post-Christian" cities in America. "Post-Christian" is defined as meeting at least 60% of 15 factors, including: do not believe in God, identify as atheist or agnostic, disagree that faith is important in their lives, disagree the Bible is accurate, have not donated money to a church (in the last year), have not attended a Christian church (in the last year), etc. Apparently Albany is where you want to be if you're a heathen, and Buffalo is more godless than Las Vegas. Who knew!

Monday again, and the choice is before you: go to work and pay the bills or lay around in a robe and watch movies. If you lean toward the latter, here's Michael Schultz' wonderfully surreal take on the Beatles' wonderfully surreal Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, featuring the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, George Burns, Sandy Farina's only appearance in film, the painful singing of Donald Pleasence, and more stars than you can shake a giggle stick at.

Typically, we're used to seeing politicians wait to get into office before becoming criminals. Flint has raised the bar by electing two felons. And nobody reported that they were. Not a single newspaper, not a single radio or TV station.

If you could wish one insect permenantly off the planet, which one would you get rid of?
Nothing! Player's off!
