Ferris Bueller's (Indie) Day Off

This is probably all the funnier to me because I just watched Ferris yesterday (next to Empire Records, one of my favorite, "there's nothing good on background noise movies").  Scenes from the movie cut and set to emotionally overtoned piano music to make you think it would be something more along the lines of 500 Days of Summer.

This is the magic of editing, something Ace recently found out is capable of stealing about two hours of your life if you're not paying attention.  However, whereas he was pissed that the Adjustment Bureau sucked instead of being awesome, in this case, I would be supremely pissed to find out that Ferris Bueller's Day Off is an amazing comedy that I would have never seen, instead of some stupid, overly sappy teen drama.

Rand Paul on Balancing the Budget

The Senator, as usual, is one of the most clear, concise, responsible voices on the toughest topic facing our federal government.  He goes after the proposals from both sides as insignificant and inconsequential, and implores the American people to get after Congress to get responsible and make the necessary cuts to be a functional government.

Google's Self Driving Car

Closed course, through cones and some pretty tight driving.  A lot of people wouldn't be able to drive this particular course like this.  The coolest part is probably at the end where we see how the car recognizes its surroundings.  Pretty unreal, and VERY cool.
