Crosswalk buttons don't work 

NY times has an article that New York crosswalk push buttons are actually ineffective. Apparently, New York City deactivated most of the pedestrian buttons long ago with the emergence of computer-controlled traffic signals. From the article, 'More than 2,500 of the 3,250 walk buttons that still exist function essentially as mechanical placebos, city figures show.' Well, apparently New York city isn't the only city like this. I guess the answer lies in the same reason why people press the elevator button more then once.

State of the U.S. Arcade Industry 2004 

1UP has a good article on the State of the U.S. Arcade Industry for 2004. Ahhh, the good old arcade... you can't find that anymore... and when you do, it's different... it's $1.00 or $1.50 a game... Perhaps the high prices in itself caused the downfall of the industry.

Hmmm... an offical "polaroid" response to Outkast's lyrics. The song amazes me. It appeals to all generation gaps. I see old people dancing to it, yet the song is just about casual sex. Those silly conservatives!
