Some Interesting Things

First, snitched from Comicmix, a really interesting nine-minute film by Jim Henson without puppets.

Then, while I was out today, I saw three bloodmobiles. A little googling shows there's a lot of blood-giving today, but not why.

Also while out to get groceries, I saw a bumpsticker that said:

My kid is an honor student
& my president is an idiot!

Finally, a new mother has been denied extra time off from her medical licensing test to pump breast milk. The judge has given her some options, including waiting until next year to take the test (so she doesn't get her job for another year?). I've never had kids, but I know plenty of nursing mothers who have massive pain (and the possibility of infection) if they can't nurse or pump regularly. I think the judge is wrong here.
