  1. ‘If they can make Avatar, they can make anything,’

    Uh… dude? Avatar was a movie. But then, maybe Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s quote was totally staged. After all, if one large group of people made Avatar, then another completely unrelated group of people can make anything.

    And who are these “they” that he speaks of, exactly? They sound pretty talented!

  2. The list of important inventions is blocked at my work, but I’m gonna say toilet paper should be at the very top. It’s something that really gets overlooked easily, but you’d miss it pretty fast if you had none. I think this would be a good topic for an AI (important but overlooked inventions, not toilet paper specifically).

  3. Re: The Onion Article and EZ Cheez.

    This person has obviously never seen the most glorious creation ever: Spray cans of pancake batter.

    I repeat: Spray cans of pancake batter. I have pictures of this in my phone, because I knew I would have to prove it.

    This blows spray cheese RIGHT. OUT. OF. THE. WATER.

    I am surprised the manufacturers of this are not lobbying Congress for the legalization of marijuana.

  4. When I read the “Avatar” bit, at first I was amused. Then I got angry at the idea that killing innocent people to provide an excuse for war is a common practice in American history. So I was mad at Mr. Muhammad. Then I read the comments on the article, and got mad at bigots and truthers.

    Now I just feel sad and fatalistic. We’re doomed. We can’t possibly have a high tech civilization when the stupid alert is permanently stuck on red.
