The Best Superbowl Ad of 2013

This year was a pretty disappointing year for Super Bowl ads, but one commercial for Dodge stood out. Here it is.

The late Paul Harvey’s famed “So God Made A Farmer” voice-over was from a speech he gave in 1978 at the National FAA Convention.

The mention of God in the ad of course set a lot of people off. Too bad. It was a beautiful ad.

Buy Paul Harvey books.

How to rebuild Earth after 2012

This is cool. The Open Source Ecology (OSE) and the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) started a project that is building 40 tools and machines that can be used to (re)create new civilizations with modern-day comforts. This technology and these new construction and agriculture designs will be great when we have to rebuild Earth after 2012. 🙂

But seriously, the prototypes here are impressive, and the practical applications are far-reaching. Think what small, remote villages and Third World countries could accomplish with these tools.
