JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN: The Japanese continue to find ways to creep me out with their ingenuity.

GIZMO OF THE DAY: This is pretty nifty, but will the TSA throw you in the slammer if they catch you with one?

REMINDER OF THE DAY: This is clever.



Now this is wicked-cool. This is the Navy's new X47B stealth fighter drone. Notice the lack of any tail feature. It will be the first unmammed vehicle to land on an aircraft carrier. Awesome. Find out more here.

I SEE DUMB PEOPLE: They will never live this down.

McCHOKE ON THIS: Normally reasonable people are freaking out over the temporary return of McDonald's McRib. Perhaps you should peep this before chomping that.  Or not if you'd rather live in denial, then don't.

"Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother, you're staying alive..." Barely. Robin Gibb is not looking very hale these days, not to mention hearty.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Whoa. When this guy is calling out the crazy in a political party that has embraced no small amount of it of late, things have become strange indeed...or, hilarious. Still working that one out.

SHENANIGANS: When nobody actually shows up to your demonstrations, you have to literally find audiences for publicity. Maybe they should just mind their own business and leave enough alone.

CORPORATIONS RUN THE WORLD. Uh, this is something. From the opening paragraph of the article:

An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.
