Odds and Ends

– Here is a blog doing updates from Thailand on the coup. There doesn’t seem to be any sort of indignation or outrage among the general population. The ousted PM doesn’t seem to be that popular either. I don’t think its just the bloggers opinion as I’ve read about the problems with the most recent election before the coup. Despite the fact that I’ve written more about the politics of Thailand in the last 24 hours than I have about US politics on this blog, I know very little about it.

– Great name for a band: The Coup Plotters

USB Rechargeable batteries. A great idea.

– On the subject of repressive governments…..Zimbabwe’s internet is down. They having gotten five notices, their power will be shut off at the end of the month too. They might want to start putting all their stuff up on craigslist to raise some money.
