Too Good Not to Post

Do you ever just start at reddit or digg or fark and just keep going by following various miscellaneous links on one page or another? Well, this is how I got to this picture which is just complete AWESOME! It's amazing that someone actually took the time to not only piece these doll parts together, but to actually set this up, photograph it, and post it for all of us to see. You're welcome!

Oh, and if that isn't enough, Stephen Fry (of Fry and Laurie with Hugh Laurie and of V for Vendetta) gave a great speech on piracy and its purposes other than getting free media. It's a really direct and insightful podcast which points out some great ideas. Here's the link as it is a podcast and I can't embed it here (or really, just don't know how if it's possible). Below, as an end to this post, is a superb quote from Mr. Fry in response to what he feels about his own work getting pirated:

"I am not trying to get points for being noble, but I think I'm in an overpaid, overpraised, overpampered profession and that I think I'm paid perfectly well enough. And if certain fish slip through the net, the mesh is still narrow enough for me to have a very lucky, privileged, and happy life spreading the work that I do which I do for pleasure. The money is a marvelous way of keeping score, and I do love certain luxuries at my age and size like traveling first class or whatever it might be. And if I couldn't do that because noone paid for copyrights of my work, then I'd go on the streets as a prostitute and earn it that way."
