Work Days Rant

I just stumbled across this in my research of "bling bling" on the internet. It's an animated chart comparing the number of days that the average American gets off work each year compared with the average congressman. Kind of makes me consider being a congressman, yo.

Oh! And I just have to share:

I got this book for Christmas/birthday from my friend. It's fantastic! The best parts so far are the centerfold poster of Kerry vs. Bush "the thrilla in vanilla" and the Japanese anime-style section telling all about Japan. Also, I liked the pictures of the naked supreme court justices in a sick kind of way. Seriously though, this book is snortingly funny. Nice!

"In AMERICA (THE BOOK), Jon Stewart and The Daily Show writing staff offer their insights into our unique system of government, dissecting its institutions, explaining its history and processes, and exploring the reasons why concepts like "One man, one vote," "Government by the people," and "Every vote counts" have become such popular urban myths."
