Congress-critters show unusual intelligence in recent vote

Tuesday we received confirmation that the Senate has chosen to repeal the law allowing indefinite duration temporary (i.e. permanent) appointments of U.S. prosecutors without Senate confirmation. Next will be moving the legislation through the House of Representatives. This was part of the response to the firing and replacement of 8 U.S. prosecutors last year.

Worth1000.com Attack of the Clones contest #11

Recently, Worth1000 had an Attack of the Clones contest. Some of the entries are really good. Naturally, I really liked the entries with multiple Jessica Alba shots, although the multiple Katherine Heigl shot is probably my favorite in the group. Check out the contest results for some really great photochopping (and shorter link if that’s broken) of easy-on-the-eyes images. Here are the full contest details:

In this contest you will clone any famous person in such a way that they appear to be interacting with their twin (as demonstrated in the themepost).

The rules of this game are thus: You are to take any famous person and “clone” them. The clone should interact with their twin in the image in such a way as that the interaction looks real, not like you just took the original and mirrored it. NOTE: We only want images of FAMOUS people, not an image of your weird Uncle Carl wrestling with himself. As always, quality is a must. You’ll have 48 hours for this contest, so make your submission count.
