I'm sincerely disappointed that I didn't think of this first: bullet-time-lapse
Space Art is fun.
Danny Michel is great, and nobody knows it but me and Canada.
Why were we so opposed to the ideology of the USSR for 50 years, but we're totally okay with Chinese oppressive Communism (Go Beijing 2008 Olympics)? Is it because Chinese Communism is (presently) a contained wrong? They aren't rolling tanks into Georgia, I suppose.
I don't think it's a good idea to be so cozy with a nation we don't share fundamental common values with, even if they provide unbelievably cheap labor. It intertwines our futures in a way that we'll ultimately have to reconcile, maybe in a very ugly conflict. It's like a marriage. You wouldn't marry somebody for the tax breaks when you know the other would make a deplorable parent. Why should we tie our future to China if we don't see eye to eye on very basic issues concerning human rights, freedom of speech, and political freedom?
