Special Comment: Torture Accountability - A special comment I can agree with. Keith Olbermann makes the argument that for the sake of the country, Bush and his cronies must be held accountable for ignoring and violating the law. Obama wants to "move forward", essentially ignoring what Bush did. As Olbermann pointed out, every time we "move forward" be it slavery (Civil War), no war crimes after WWI (WWII), ignoring of trusts in 1900s (see bailout of today), McCarthyism (Watergate), and so on. Basically ignoring what happened means it simply gets repeated later. In this case, some future President will look at the Bush years as an example of how to push policy rather than a cautionary tale (like Nixon) on how to not conduct business. A lesson needs to be made of Bush and his friends, not just to heal today's wounds but to prevent future ones.

Starcraft II Battle Report - Terran vs. Zerg in a battle report from Blizzard that shows off game play. It is 20 minutes long but if you’re as interested in this game as I am, I find it a fun watch.

New Harry Potter 6 Trailer - Click the link for the latest trailer that shows awesome visuals and a much darker style then before.

Pirate Bay Four Found Guilty - It is official, the four founders of the Pirate Bay were found guilty of charges of being accessories to copyright infringement and ordered to spend a year in prison and pay about $3.5 million in damages. The site itself seems unaffected and the four said they would appeal.

DSI Stop Motion Disassembly - A cool video from TechRestore were they use stop motion to have a Nintendo DSi appear to take itself apart. I wouldn't mind seeing a "how they do that" video of the process.

Lego Battleship Yamato - Watch the below video that showcases the Lego Battleship Yamato. It is 22 feet long, took 6 years and 4 months to complete, 200k bricks and weighs 330 pounds. This sucker is constructed 1/40 scale. The video even shows how it was assembled and included a motorized gun. Simply amazing. Lego should consider buying it for one of their parks.
