Comet Headed Into Sun or Is It?

Here's a video of a newly discovered comet heading into the sun. Or is it simply going to pass behind or in front of the sun and return back to where it came from on it's eternal elliptical path?

Google - the Evil Empire?

According to this video, which portrays Google as being an evil empire, Google serves over 1 billion search results daily from over 450,000 servers, is valued at $200 billion, and has the motto "Do no evil". The video does a good job at shedding light on Google's reach into almost everything. As evil as Google may be, they sure have created some amazing tools and opened up a lot of doors for small business around the world by connecting them with customers through Adsense and search results. What may be unsettling though, is Google's CEO saying, "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place" (See second video). Even though he's right, because of the Patriot Act, Google is legally bound to provide the government with information on their servers. That's probably the real source of the evil if there is any.
