PUTTING THE USUAL PRACTICE of making wild electoral promises in front of the mirror to make the cynicism usually involved as obvious as possible: a Belgian candidate offers 40,000, er, bl*wjobs to whoever votes for her. And also with a techno twist: if you prefer, it's her avatar in Second Life who'll do it. I guess most will sign for the real thing, even if she says it'll be only five minutes... you know geeks usually will have 4 and a half left to check their email! (via the Spanish blog Sobre la Red)

UPDATE. Ron Chusid: "There’s no word as to whether Bill Clinton has signed up."
