google provides these nap pods around their campus so workers can freshen up with a short nap. i vote that we get the same thing at work. my only requirement is that it muffle the snoring so people can get their work done.
i had posted earlier about some jail in the philippines actually choreographing an entire dance sequence set to michael jackson’s thriller. it seems that, by popular request, they have modernized somewhat and are performing soulja boy now.
thanks to cath for the linkage again. i think she sent me the last one too – so i’m wondering whats fueling her filipino jail dancer fetish?

Vietnam to Launch 1st Satellite to Improve Country’s Telecommunications
HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Vietnam is preparing to launch its first satellite, hoping to improve the country’s telecommunications to keep pace with its rapid economic development, officials said Wednesday.
Vinasat No. 1 is scheduled to be launched April 12 from Kourou spaceport in South America, and will be ready for use in May, Nguyen Ba Thuoc, vice general director of state-owned Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Corp., or VNPT, told reporters.
The US$200-million (euro130-million) satellite, which has a medium transmission capacity, will help make Internet and television accessible nationwide, Thuoc said.
“Vietnam has reached the point where significant improvements of the telecommunication infrastructure are needed for its economic and social development,” said Thuoc. Better telecommunications would bring more investment into the country, he said.
Currently, businesses and the Vietnamese government are renting satellites from Australia, Thailand and Russia.
Vietnam’s economy has grown at an average annual rate of more than 7 percent for the last 10 years. It has 19 million Internet users, and more than 40 million telephones, according to government figures.
pretty neat how you can see the small wave go through the concrete block. if only i could have a camera like this capture me blocking some fools basketball shot to the street or capture marcos when he does a surprise face slap to daddy.
