This is a link to the Google Maps of a refinery I spent hellish days working in. Nice. The long vertical thingy in the middle is the DHU where the refinery makes high-grade diesel fuel. Yawn.

How to be a Successful Evil Overlord

StumbleUpon for Firefox has revealed some sidesplitting fun today for me the least of which is:

How to be a Successful Evil Overlord
by Peter Anspach

Being an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well, there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours. However every Evil Overlord I’ve read about in books or seen in movies invariably gets overthrown and destroyed in the end. I’ve noticed that no matter whether they are barbarian lords, deranged wizards, mad scientists, or alien invaders, they always seem to make the same basic mistakes every single time. With that in mind, allow me to present…

    For Example:

  1. My Legion of Terror will be trained in basic marksmanship. Any who cannot learn to hit a man-sized target at 10 meters will be used for target practice.
  2. Before employing any captured artifacts or machinery, I will carefully read the owners manual.
  3. If it becomes necessary to escape, I will never stop to pose dramatically and toss off a one-liner…
  4. No matter how many shorts we have in the system, my guards will be instructed to treat every surveillance camera malfunction as a full-scale emergency.
  5. When I create a multimedia presentation of my plan designed so that my five-year-old advisor can easily understand the details, I will not label the disk “Project Overlord” and leave it lying on top of my desk.

If you want to see what I have looked at today, my StumbleUpon name is DoctorFeelGood (as usual).

From Slashdot/WSJ:

Sales of Music,
Long in Decline,
Plunge Sharply

One week, “American Idol” runner-up Chris Daughtry’s rock band sold just 65,000 copies of its chart-topping album; another week, the “Dreamgirls” movie soundtrack sold a mere 60,000. As recently as 2005, there were many weeks when such tallies wouldn’t have been enough to crack the top 30 sellers. In prior years, it wasn’t uncommon for a No. 1 record to sell 500,000 or 600,000 copies a week.

Retailers and others say record labels have failed to deliver big sellers. And even the hits aren’t what they used to be. Norah Jones’s “Not Too Late” has sold just shy of 1.1 million copies since it was released six weeks ago. Her previous album, “Feels Like Home,” sold more than 2.2. million copies in the same period after its 2004 release.

Bum Rush The Charts

Podcasting gets little respect from traditional media. To them we’re little more than a joke, than amateurs. What they don’t understand is that podcasting is more than just a delivery mechanism – it’s a social movement. People are sick of the watered-down, cookie-cutter content that networks and record companies expect us to enjoy. People are tired of watching friends and loved ones get sued by record labels who only care about profits and nothing else, not even the artists they supposedly represent.

Heavy metal ‘a comfort for the bright child’

Link

Intelligent teenagers often listen to heavy metal music to cope with the pressures associated with being talented, according to research.

The results of a study of more than 1,000 of the brightest five per cent of young people will come as relief to parents whose offspring, usually long-haired, are devotees of Iron Maiden, AC/DC and their musical descendants.
