Impossible GmbH, in cooperation withAPLR IP Holdings, has released re-engineered film for the once popular Polaroid style cameras.AGoing for $22 a pack of b/w, they go on sale this thursday- color packs will be available this summer.

The new packs will be marked with production dates. "It’s a little like a wine," says Kaps. "There is a lot of handwork; it’s slow production." Each vintage is unique and who can say when a wine is done for? You have to taste it.
Most ancient peoples defined population differences culturally, not physically, and often regarded lighter people as less civilized.
Here’s one playground drama that’s deserving of attention: community activists recently discovered a jungle gym with a cell door, prison bars and the word "jail" painted on it at the Tompkins Houses, a housing project in Brooklyn. The playground just so happens to be in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a historically Black neighborhood with the largest prison population in the state. Coincidence? We think not. LINK
Um… so, I’m not trying to say that I’ve never heard of kids playing Cops & Robbers. But, damn, ninjas, how you gonna paint that in the playground? In Brooklyn?? Furthermore, residents said they spray-painted over the "jail" sign several times in protest, but the Parks Dept just kept coming back and restoring it. What kinda )*#& is that?! My ninjas, please.
Thanks to B for the link.
Wow, this certainly puts a different spin on things.

Although many people believe that Samuel Johnson said "The road to hell is paved with good intentions," he shouldn’t get credit for this one.
Johnson said something close, but he was following in others’ footsteps. In Boswell’s Life of Johnson, in an entry marked April 14, 1775, Boswell quotes Johnson as saying (on some other occasion), "Hell is paved with good intentions." Note, no prefatory "the road to…" Boswell’s editor, Malone, added a footnote indicating this is a ‘proverbial sentence,’ and quoting an earlier 1651 source (yet still not in the common wording).
