The next time you’re at a music festival and see a giant rainbow trout swishing around in the sky, there’s just a chance you might not be intoxicated. It might be scientists testing an airship that moves like a fish. More

Watching BP’s continued, repeated failures would almost be funny if it weren’t so gut-wrenching. If only there were a perfect analogy for how it felt watching the unraveling, in hilarious comic strip form.

You’d have to be quite the crazed Hello Kitty fan to pay four bucks for a Twitter iPhone app with a nauseatingly cutesy user interface like this, but it’s available on iTunes now anyway. [ iTunes ] More

Before it occurred to anyone to just have Obi-Wan use The Force to smuggle C-3PO and R2-D2 past those nosy stormtroopers, the script called for a much more conventional means of subterfuge: a disguise! [ Mike Verta — Thanks William! ] More
