Starting a religion

Starting a Religion is not as obvious as you think. In true form, Iggy Chaos (hilariously) gets ready to setup his.

Modular Origami

Modular Origami is a very cool thing. Make a Buckyball with some PHiZZ units or make some polyhedra with the penultimate modules.

Pearls of wisdom from ordinary folk

PageWise offers tips and little essays in simple language: Organize your work desk and files, Care for someone with Alzheimer's, Reduce holiday stress, Parenting advice that really works(!), Fix cooking mistakes, The basics of clothing stain removal. It's a cheap shot, but I particularly liked "Help you child in improving their writing skills". But why wouldn't they build in a search feature? I had to google to find again the article on restraining the elderly. (And what's the deal with the similar WebGuru?).

Civil Disobedience Training

Civil Disobedience Training (html version), The Handbook for Nonviolent Action and Civil Disobedience Training, Nonviolent Action Handbook, and Non-violence Discipline. And then there's that crackpot who wrote in the Dhammapada that "hate is not overcome by hate; by Love (Metta) alone is hate appeased. This is an eternal law." One imagines other texts on the timely topics of peace, nonviolence, and war resistance may exist -- Martin Luther King pointedly noted, "there is nothing new about this kind of civil disobedience. It was seen sublimely in the refusal of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego to obey the laws of Nebuchadnezzar because a higher moral law was involved. It was practiced superbly by the early Christians who were willing to face hungry lions and the excruciating pain of chopping blocks, before submitting to certain unjust laws of the Roman empire."

"Do It

"Do It is a manual of artist's instructions for you to actualize. It includes works by over 60 contemporary artists ... Once you have actualized an instruction, please send us a picture and your name, we will include it in the manual" I dont know about you, but I'm going to go get some boards and a bunch of bugs to squash right now - for Baldessari, of course.
