Ramblings about what I encounter within the realm of the geosciences, as well as the occasional rant about nonsense.

Go out and vote!

Well here is a short political post. I remember a few years ago (4 to be exact) I was hopeful about electing someone competent (if not an engaging individual) to be president. Needless to say, I was horribly disappointed (the news came in the middle of a conference nonetheless. EVERYBODY looked down the next day). Around that time I was sent the link to the Diebold voting machine video. I tracked it down and put it up, because it is still funny.

Well those same individuals responsible have a new and updated one for the 2008 election. It seems to be missing something this year. I think... it is...wait don't tell me... Oh yeah, a spine. So, while it is a similar bit to last time, it comes off only a bit better than when SNL had Palin on opposite Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. That also lacked bite. Anyway here it is.

For the life of me I don't understand why we can't have a paper trail (so we can do hand counting as well) or just do it with hand counting. Diebold...what a joke.
