William K. Wolfrum’s Morning – August 9, 2010

Erik Akkersdijk once solved a Rubik’s Cube in 7.08 seconds. Today, that record doesn’t mean jack, thanks to God’s number.


A Congress Divided: The House of Representatives wonder what their Senate counterparts are waiting on.

Trial for Youngest Gitmo Detainee: And it seems like yesterday he just started talking.

Wealth Give Away: Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are getting other billionaires to donate big chunks of their estates to charity. This creates a special new job, by the way - killing billionaires. You know, for charity.

Geeking Out

Quality on Twitter: On Twitter, it’s not how many follow you, but how awesome your followers are, or something.

Fast Company: Digg, WikiLeaks, and Censorship, American Style.

Quick Movie Review

Sex and the City 2: By the end, I hated sex and the city. I hated the characters and their clothes. I hated marriage and children. And I was pro-Sharia Law. Rating: D- (On the plus side, the boom never fell into the screen).


Mia Farrow: Now Mia Farrow says Naomi Campbell is telling a lie of the witness stand. The Liberia case at The Hague may become the first major trial of a warlord covered by Perez Hilton.

Patricia Neal: The Oscar-winning actress dies at age 84.

Stephen Hawking: Ok, we get it, humanity is doomed.


Alternet: Seems someone on the Right discovered Digg.

Emptywheel: Obama does little to defend progressive nominees.

Mother Jones: A conservative that wasn’t conservative enough talks Tea Party.

Frank Rich: And in rides George W. Bush to the Democrats rescue.

HolyTaco: You too can write a Black Eyed Peas song.

Cube20.org: The God Number has been found. Rubik’s Cube has been solved. Nothing much to do now but wait around to die.

And Finally

It’s Monday, but at least you aren’t her:

    Sex and the City *2*, huh?

    In the name of journalistic integrity, I think the least you could do is enlighten your readership re: exactly what bet you lost, or what illicit substance you mistakenly drizzled on your Corn Flakes that fateful morning …

    I demand a play-by-play. You must live-blog “Sex and the City 2.” Only by your live-blogging shall I be appeased.

    Damn. I need to start live blogging things I like. Like ice cream festivals and “40 Year Old Virgin”

    I follow the philosophy of “if you can do things for free that please your spouse, do them.” Which means I have to sit through dreck like that from time to time (though my wife didn’t enjoy the movie either, but still).

    Odd. That’s the same reason I have to watch every vampire-related movie, TV series, and documentary ever created. You’d be surprised how many (often conflicting) vampire theories there are out there. And I’ve seen about 75% of them. And they keep making more every day. Fortunately, I haven’t been forced to watch Twilight yet.
