The Audible Constitution

When the tech gods figured out how to digitally compress a book and render it in audio, you knew it was only a matter of time before they figured out how to compress other print and electronic documents (notes, email, international treaties). Well, the geeks at the University of Chicago took a substantial digital leap today. They somehow managed to compress the entire United States Constitution into a single audio file. They also compressed david currie, the great orator and constitutional historian, onto the same audio. I'm not sure how they did this, but I'm confident the particle accelerator at Fermi labs was involved. Enjoy!
United States Constitution
The Bill of Rights

Bonus: Patriotic MIDI Tunes

Yo, the 22nd amendment is off the hook! Did Mel Gibson write that?
