Lukasz Zbylut (pronounced Loo-KASH Zbeh-LOOT) is a Wanted Man… erm, boy.  Wanted by all seven Ivy League colleges he applied to (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Penn, Cornell and Georgetown), along with 10 other prominent schools including Stanford and New York University.  The only school he was rejected from was MIT… my alma mater (insert: bullshit detector siren).

Not impressive enough?  What if I top it by telling you that he immigrated to the US only 5 years ago at which time he only had a very limited grasp of the English Language.  Yeah… that’s what I thought!

The lucky school that L.Z. (come on, his initials are way cooler than his name) is going to attend is his ‘dream school’ – Harvard. 

So… why do I care?  Why do I think you would care?  Well… cuz he is POLISH… as my favorite wack-a-do pal, BabyBound, pointed out.  Hmm… maybe those “Polish jokes” should be rewritten as “American jokes”.  Oh wait… they already are…

Where on (Google) Earth is Waldo?

Melanie Coles, a young web designer and artist, has developed a modern day viral game of Where’s Waldo as her graduation project from the Emily Carr Institute.

Her project consists of creating and hiding a massive painting of Waldo on a rooftop somewhere in Vancouver in hopes that it will be captured by the Google Satellite and included in the Google Earth library.  At that point, people around the world can go on a web manhunt for our stripey friend.
