Presidential Portriat of The Day

Made completely out of porn! Details here.

Robbery of The Day

So let's see...maybe he needed the $4 so he could get a tall, cool Yuengling....but then he wouldn't have been able to leave a tip. Hmmm....maybe he needed two slices of plain! Yeah! Oh, but his victim made change at a pizza parlor while he waited....Ah! Probably needed to take a round trip subway ride.

It's just good sense. Why take more than you need?

Whale Watching

WOW! See that one? Harpooned! He's being hauled into a Japanese whaling ship! Best whale-watching trip EVER!

Goodnight, sweet Alberto

And a flock of angels sing thee to thy rest.

Conspiracy Theories Far And Wide!

A list of wonderfully weird conspiracy theories...including some that even I've never heard! This one is especially strange...

" The Wingdings Font included with Windows has a history of controversy. In 1992, only days after the release of Windows 3.1, it was discovered that the character sequence "NYC" in Wingdings was rendered as Skull and crossbones symbol, Star of David, and thumbs up gesture. This could be interpreted as a message of approval of killing Jews, especially those from New York City. Microsoft strongly denied this was intentional, and insisted that the final arrangement of the glyphs in the font was largely random. Various other combinations of Wingings characters are alleged to have special significance by conspiracy theorists, but these results are likely purely coincidental."

Patient Outfit of The Day

This falls into the "is this real?" category. I'm going to say that it could go either way...BUT...STILL....

a follow up to an earlier thing

aol news is not exactly high quality, but here's more on the nasa global warming glitch.

it was a dark and stormy night...

edward bulwer-lytton penned those words years and years ago... and they've lived on in infamy as the worst opening line to any book ever.
thus, the advent of the bulwer-lytton contest; the contest to find the worst writing in the world.
past grand prize winners here.

The Michael Showalter Showalter

Possibly the best internet interview show I have found this week.

Some samples:

Michael Showalter with David Cross

Michael Showalter with David Wain

Michael Showalter with Michael Ian Black

Start Your Conspiracy Theories!

Apparently the demolition company who won the bid to demolish the Deutsche Bank tower at the WTC site, is shrouded in mystery. It does not appear to have done any work since it was incorporated in 1983. What could it be...mafia ties? Government corruption? Evidence that a diabolical plot to wreck a major catastrophe on the USA existed for over 20 years? Alien influence in the elite ruling parties of the world? YES! YES! YES!!!!!

Wi-Fi Sharing In The UK

So apparently new UK communications laws are STRICT! A 39 year old man was arrested for picking up someone else's unsecured wireless internet signal. The article states:

The 39-year-old man could be charged under the Communications Act for dishonestly obtaining communications services. The Act says: "A person who (a) dishonestly obtains an electronic communications service, and (b) does so with intent to avoid payment of a charge applicable to the provision of that service, is guilty of an offence."

holy crap

jack handey kinda rocks.

i'm no fan of facebook

but the fact that this new facebook app exists makes me glad i have one.
deep thoughts... by jack handey

“I remember one day I was at Grandpa’s farm and I asked him about sex. He sort of smiled and said, ‘Maybe instead of telling you what sex is, why don’t we go out to the horse pasture and I’ll show you.’ So we did, and there on the ground were my parents having sex.”

“It’s easy to sit there and say you’d like to have more money. And I guess that’s what I like about it. It’s easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money.”

“Isn’t it funny how whenever we go to a county fair or a state fair, the first thing we do is see if they have some kind of pornography booth.”

—Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey
so yeah, get facebook and get this app now.

Standing up for his rights. To drive a golf cart. Through downtown Stockholm. Drunk.

Cops Around The World

Indian Guy of The Day

World's oldest father with 4 wives, 21 kids (at least).

Most excellent quote: [He] "attributes his remarkable virility to daily walks and plenty of meat, said: 'I eat all kinds of meat - rabbits, lamb, chicken and wild animals.'"

Most disturbing quote: "His latest wife, Saburi, who has given him seven children, was first married to his eldest son Shiv Lal, who died 10 years ago."

(Thanks Brit)

Free haunted mannequin in OKC

I call dibs. Thank you, craigslist.


The word is that NEW DELOREANS will be available for sale, starting in January 2008. If you're like me, you can't wait to get your hands on a car that not only has one of the worst reliability ratings of all time, but also a starting price of $57,500. But on the plus side, a new batch of DeLoreans must mean a new Back to The Future movie right? RIGHT????

what a great name

one wonders how this man became a bishop and why he would want to attract any attention to himself. ladies and gentlemen... Bishop Tiny Muskens!
i know, he sounds like a character from the movie elf.

The Art of The Pickup

Check out this page. Absolutely amazing. How better to learn male-female relational advice? Oh, and this page has some great demo clips and free tips!

Faster Than The Speed of Light?

OK, well maybe not. This article takes issue with my earlier posts. Oh well.

All-Bran Advertisement of The Day

I think this is real. It's just a commercial with a sense of humor. Very subtle, All-Bran!

Star Trek, Here We Come!

German physicists break the speed of light. Sort of.

"They have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons - energetic packets of light - travelled "instantaneously" between a pair of prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart."

Anyway, it's a start.

Incredible application!

This application is very useful, and seems to be very user friendly.

I can see this doing quite well in the video game, animation and film industries. (It probably already is!)

NYC Storage Billboard of The Day

Check it out! We've all seen these storage ads: "Your closet's so shallow it makes Paris look deep" etc. This one is my new favorite: "Your closet space is shrinking as fast as her right to choose."

What could make this even more classy? Hmmm....maybe if we superimposed the slogan over a coathanger...yeah....

beating you to tmbg news is sweet, flinthearted

this movie has garnered my excitement for several reasons... a few things to notice:
- starring dakota fanning
- co-directed by henry selick, stop-motion guy for nightmare before christmas, james and the giant peach, and the life aquatic with steve zissou (he did the fish... they're not cg... that should blow your effing mind)
- written by neil gaiman, author of smoke and mirrors, an anthology of short stories with twists, and stardust, the new movie with robert deniro
and most importantly...
- soundtrack by they might be giants!

I know this is old, but Ben asked me to post it anyway. If the fact that I first heard this on NPR does not convince you to listen to All Things Considered ever day, I don't know what is wrong with you. Also, this is my first post since...early May? Wheee.
