The USA has got to be by far the oddest country on the Earth. The current debate, raging it's way from coast to coast is the eternal question: What would Jesus drive? This is after a major advertising campaign by evangelical and green groups aimed at persuading Americans to step out of their gas guzzlers (and stop producing half of all the world's polution). It is best summed up at the site which states:

This isn't the evangelical anti-SUV website.... They believe Jesus would drive a fuel-efficient vehicle. I take photographs of toys in fucked-up situations. There's a subtle, yet important, difference.

Good links on his site as well. Actually that's pretty much all this site consists of, plus a couple of odd pictures. Remind you of another site? Good though.

Anyway, back to the matter in hand.... Ask an American what they think Jesus would drive and they remark what a good question it is (they do, I saw it on telly last night). Ask a Brit and they will present you with a look that is a mixture of amusement and bewilderment (I know because I asked one). This issue, I believe, beautifully encapsulates the differences between the peoples of the two countries in question.

Office Bored Games Not just dodgy online games; games that involve, for instance, cutting little snowboarding figures out and chucking them off the back of your monitor! Must be good....

The Eye! The Eye!
