Minds in the 21st century.

When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Arthur C. Clarke's 1 law.

At the present rate of progress, it is almost impossible to imagine any technical feat that cannot be achieved - if it can be achieved at all - within the next few hundred years.

Arthur C. Clarke, 1983.

Illumi Room by Microsoft Research - Trailer (HD)

Just about any night in Inglewood, Los Angeles.

Close to Hollywood, there tend to be a lot of cameras around: Certainly, as this uploader so funnily says, ''Here we go again....this guy just don't wanna give up....''
Pure Keystone Cops: And when the Cavalry comes driving by you scream ''Inglewood'': The suspect flashed gang hand signs out of the driver’s side window during he pursuit. ”The gang signs were consistent with his being a gang member,” Hand said.

More chase footage.

Inglewood Police go after the man in a vehicle, following him as they go by the observer's home. This incident occurred on West Century Boulevard, in Inglewood, California, so we now know where uploader Jason Lee lives.

In the description, he lets us know that the motorist was eventually caught by police, at the intersection of Arbor Vitae and Oak Street.

Officers waited until a pattern emerged in the suspect’s course, then laid down spike strips again at Century Boulevard and Inglewood Avenue at about 1 a.m., Hand said, adding that the car came to a stop at Arbor Vitae and Oak Streets in Inglewood and the boy gave up without incident.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of car theft, assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer for running into the patrol car, and felony evading, Hand said. His name was not released because of his age.
