My election prediction

Bush will get in, because not enough people are that fed up with Bush.

Things will get worse, with Bush pushing rightwards and christianwards until so many people are fed up that the next election is a landslide for the Democrats.

This will change the face of US politics in 4 years time, with the populace at large being less trusting of any political party.

One last thing before work

I woke at 6am from a dream where I was entirely covered in 3-inch-wide spiders.  They weren't biting me or doing anything very much, but I was trying to shake them off as gently as possible and not terribly happy about it all.  I woke up, walked _very carefully_ to the toilet and spent the next ten minutes itching randomly...

Jesus Christ on a stick

I remember a time, not very long ago, when CGI was darned impressive and was getting close to looking real.  Obviously you could still tell it was CGI, but it was darned pretty.

Some day, I thought, we'll be able to produce graphics that look real.

I didn't notice it happening, but it has.  I _cannot tell_ that the pictures here are fake.  I simply cannot.

Looks real, doesn't it?

It isn't.
