Two Jedi this morning turned up at the UN’s London HQ to demand official recognition of their religion, The Sun reports.
“Umada” and “Yunyun” – aka 27-year-old John Wilkinson and 24-year-old Charlotte Law – timed their “protest” to coincide with today’s UN International Day of Tolerance, which they’d like renamed “Interstellar Day of Tolerance”.
Wilkinson said: “We have come here today to ask that we are recognised as the fourth largest religion in this country.”
Indeed, more than 390,000 Brits are practising Jedi, according to the 2001 census. Brighton is the country’s principal centre of Jedi activity, with 6,480 professing to follow the faith.
Despite our personal reservations on the topic, if you’re rocking a Zune, we say more power to you, and we thought we’d let you know about this simple method to upgrade that little player of yours to 40GB. Ironically, iPodMods did the honors: turns out the Zune uses the same battery as that of the 60/80GB iPod, and while they were mucking about they also discovered that an upgrade to a 40GB Toshiba drive is relatively painless as well.
Looking for a weekend project, or haven’t found a music player that’ll satisfy your inner creative geek? Well, meet MAKE‘s Daisy MP3 Player Kit, an open-source setup that’ll play MP3 and WAV files all from one little chip board. Of course, this is a kit, not a full-fledged player, meaning Daisy comes in parts — you’ll have to give it a power source and a case should you want to actually use it in the real world.
