I know real ninjas can park, but…

If you’re ninja enough to cop this revolving driveway, nobody can really clown your parking skills. They even make one for motorcycles, too.
Check out the vehicle turntable.

Build? Grow Your House!!!

MIT is up to trouble again. People build furniture and other art out of live trees, so why not build some houses?
"The concept of a living house is really incredibly exciting when you think that people in tropical and semitropical locations have fast-growing trees available," said Richard Reames, an Oregon-based "arborsculptor" who uses grafting techniques to grow living furniture.

Aussies Lead The Way In Green Entrepreneurialism

Those wacky Aussies are among those at the forefront of renewable energy. From the article:

"The solar tower is the most audacious of a host of renewable-energy projects under way in Australia that are making the country the global hotbed of alternative-energy entrepreneurship. Concerns over greenhouse gases, the oil crisis, and China’s voracious appetite for energy may have stirred only faint interest from the U.S. government and, to date, halting efforts by American entrepreneurs. But Down Under, people see a big upside, and a swarm of innovating Aussies are busily staking out turf in what is sure to be a massive global market for renewable energy in coming years."

9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon

For all you ninjas that are one of the 1/3 of Americans who suspect some sort of government conspiracy in the 9-11 attacks (poll), or just think the official investigation overlooked some things, the Washington Post is reporting today that the 9/11 Panel suspected deception by the Pentagon, and even mulled criminal charges!

This comes on the heels of the American Scholars Symposium on the attacks that was actually aired by C-SPAN last week. You can watch the conference here - note however that Alex Jones, the guy who put on the conference, runs a website called "Prison Planet," and is not always assumed to be the most credible source.

The government yesterday did release video of the plane hitting the Pentagon - the refusal to release this evidence is often cited by members of the 9/11 Truth Movement - the video was part of evidence that was introduced in the sentencing phase of the trial of Zacarias Mossaui - it can be viewed here, though the link is being bombarded, so it takes a lot of retries to actually get it. A lower quality version of both video clips are up on YouTube, here and here.

(ed: truthfully still don’t see too much evidence of a plane, per se, though I still haven’t been able to get the real video. I’ll leave it up to the readers to decide)
For all of you ninjas who are interested in this, read a bit about ‘Operation Northwoods’ if you haven’t already - it was a plan written by the Joint Chiefs of Staff from back in the Kennedy administration to launch terror attacks against Americans to rally public support for a war with cuba - you can read the now declassified documents here.
