Tonight for your viewing pleasure


A virtual trip to the Sistine Chapel.


Update go here http://www.vatican.va/various/cappelle/sistina_vr/index.html
Villanova Villanova students and faculty from the University’s communication and computing science departments spent five nights in a closed Sistine Chapel, taking several thousand digital photographs with an advanced motorized camera rig and then digitally stitched together, color-corrected, and post-processed the images to create a cubic panorama file that presents the Chapel in a three-dimensional projection. Learn more here.
Visitors can zoom in for high-resolution views of the interior of the Chapel. The tour can be viewed over Internet connections with a variety of bandwidths. It does take a bit of time to initially load.
It took Michelangelo 4 years to paint the 12,000 square foot ceiling, not to mention the years spent by the other masters Raphael, Bernini and Botticelli (and of course their assistants). So five nights to film and who knows how many weeks to render, is not that bad for this cool technology. Unfortunately the technology will most likely, further evolve into another reason for me not to leave the house or my computer screen.

Take a look, it is cool. 

However be warned there are a lot penises exposed from above. Apparently old Mr. Simoni had a sense of humor or the penis was more revered back in those days, even the small ones.

Things that piss me off, today

Government Negotiations
Do you think that it might have been wiser to wait for the federal court decision on the legality of the approval process used by the National Energy Board when giving the go ahead for expansion of the Kinder Morgan bitumen pipeline, before spending 9 billion plus dollars on what was originally purchased for 110 million dollars by Kinder Morgan, ten years ago?
Considering that we all knew that Harper’s National Energy Board was nothing more than a corrupt industry rubber stamp. Isn’t that one of the many reasons we got rid of Harper, including of course hiding in a closet when we were attacked (in case anyone forgot)?
Somehow I am now supposed to be confident that our government can successfully renegotiate NAFTA with the Orange Asshole.
Jesus I’m sounding like a conservative.
Dating Apps
My son has become a player, in his dad’s mind. He has three different dating apps that apparently are for daters wanting three different types of dates. He showed me one app in…

Dear Progressives Bloggers Admin

How is the Warren Kinsella blog considered a Progressive Blogger?

They runs ads for Doug Ford. They ran ads for the conservatives the last time Harper ran.

They continue to promote the SNC bullshit.

Get them off this aggregator. Thank you.

Trump is about to get his wish, lock children up longer

In the US it is currently against the law to imprison children who enter the US illegally. The 1997 law known as the the Flores Settlement Agreement (Flores) set national standards regarding the detention, release, and treatment of all children in immigration detention and underscores the principle of family unity.

It requires that:
Juveniles be released from custody without unnecessary delay, and in order of preference to the following: a parent, legal guardian, adult relative, individual specifically designated by the parent, a child welfare licensed program, or, alternatively when family reunification is not possible, an adult seeking custody deemed appropriate by the responsible government agency.Where they cannot be released because of significant public safety or flight risk concerns, juveniles must be held in the least restrictive setting appropriate to age and special needs, generally, in a nonsecure facility licensed by a child welfare entity and separated from unrelated adults…
