bush_einstein.jpg

The year 2005 marks the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's "miracle year" when he published a series of scientific papers that revolutionised our view of space and time.

2005 also marks the miraculous winning of George W Bush and the year he will show the world his true genius by ending tyranny on earth!

?America, in this young century, proclaims liberty throughout all the world, and to all the inhabitants thereof. Renewed in our strength ? tested, but not weary ? we are ready for the greatest achievements in the history of freedom.?

Ancient Animation

A team of archaeologists recently discovered an earthenware bowl at the Burnt City, which has what they believe is the world?s oldest animated picture drawn around it. The Burnt City is located 57 kilometres from the city of Zabol in Iran?s Sistan and Baluchestan province.

The animated bit was found on a 5000 year old pottery and this is my animation gif version of it:
