The Welsh Space Campaign.
The suit is made of the fabric woven in the last remaining wool mills
in Wales. The astronaut boots are traditional Welsh clogs
crafted by a traditional clog maker. The whole pressure system that will enable the astronaut to sustain life in outer space was built by a Welsh plumber
The aim of the designer is to reveal that Wales has the capacity to explore space, and to show that off-world culturalisation can be achieved through a collective communitarian effort; as a way to allow the people involved to reconsider their role and skill in relation to these cosmic contexts. -- We Make Money Not Art

Seriously pissed? How about serious change?
Decades from now, no one will accuse our generation of not protesting enough
, but you'll probably be making excuses for how we did it
. No offense to those who have
protested this way- your heart's in the right place and you've probably given lots of time and money to doing the right thing- but what if you're not helping? What if hundreds of thousands of people turned out in their very best, most serious clothes, with no puppets, no "clever" home-made signs, and no instruments? It's worked before
. As Matt Taibbi put it in AdBusters (previously on MeFi)
, "Next thing you know, you’ve got guys on stilts wearing mime makeup and Cat-in-the-Hat striped top-hats leading a half-million people at an anti-war rally. Why is that guy there? Because no one told him that war is a matter of life and death and that he should leave his fucking stilts at home." These things always start small
, but who knows? This is serious- let's act like it. If you wouldn't bring it or wear it to your grandmother's funeral, leave it at home

It puts the lotion in the basket. [nsfw]
You know how in that movie, The Silence of the Lambs,
the serial killer they're trying to catch is skinning women because he wants to make a suit out of real girls?
If this product was around, perhaps we could have saved the lives of a lot of fictional victims.

"You look like a pimp,"
said the principal of a Chattanooga school to a student who wore a suit to graduation. Girls in gowns were also forbidden to walk across the stage to get their diplomas. Other than wearing, say, a chicken suit or something, can one be too dressed up for graduation?

Google runs into Copyright Dispute...
Does the Church of Scientology have a leg to stand on in suiing Google for linking to church documents? Be sure to check out Operation Clambake
, the site in question who claims all documentation on their site is ", is allowable under the "fair use" provisions of internationally recognized copyright law"
. If it is truly a question of copyright, shouldn't the Scientologists be suing the site
in question and not Google????
When Google removed the link, it outraged the technology community - can Google win in this case??? Check out what Don Marti
has to say about the issue...
