Suprises

April 26, 2009

There are plenty of things that still surprise me in this world: Why anyone wanted to be a kick returner in the xfl, how the wiimote works,  and every year how those terrible necco candy hearts continue to stay in business.

Another one of those things is that someone in Australia Left a live shark outside an office.

Or how this man helps sell bananas in Japan:

NEW LEVEL OF CREEPY: JAPANESE BANANA MAN | Warming Glow

I’d imagine that bananas that are shot out of a nose, are not the ones I would want to eat. Apparently the Japanese feel that the peel protects them from the other gross stuff in banana man’s nose.

Or even puppets that look a little bit too real: Jurassic Park Museum [VIDEO]

Sure I’d love to go see this museum now, but as a kid I’m pretty sure I would have crapped my pants.

And always a shock, a lady who might actually be part unicorn: Unicorn Lady [PIC].

The paparazzi catching Barbie doing scandalous things: 55 Scandalous Barbie Photos.  And I thought Paris and Britney were bad.

I also never knew that there was a gay alphabet song: YouTube – The Gay Alphabet (HD). I had no idea that I only knew of the straight alphabet from the Dr. Seuss’s ABC Book. But apparently a zizzer-zazzer-zuzz is totally straight. 

Lastly, in news that doesn’t surprise me the least bit: FBI database links long-haul truckers, serial killings – Los Angeles Times.

Like it takes a rocket scientists to know that most truckers are most likely serial killers.

Things that scare me

April 20, 2009

I have never really loved clowns (maybe because of the movie IT, or maybe because the only cool thing they can do is create balloon animals). But the fact is that most times they come across as scary looking, rather than funny looking. And who is the kingpin of all these scary clowns (No, not Insane Clown Posse) Ronald McDonald.  And today I stumbled upon a list of 20 Terrifying Ronald McDonald pictures that I just need to share with all of you: Unreality – The 20 Most Terrifying Pictures of Ronald McDonald Ever

If that doesn’t creep you out, how about mouthwash that you can drink? Close Call Online Store

Not only can you drink it, they recommend you drink it! And they claim it cures hangovers.

Apparently in Spain they have a baby jumping festival. No, the babies aren’t jumping. Grown men are dressed austerely, and then they try and jump over REAL babies: The Baby-Jumping Colacho Festival | Castrillo de Murcia, Spain | Whatsonwhen . Any one interested in attending this year’s festivities? 

 

If Only I had known about this when it was still cold outside: FUZZY MOHAIR fetish sweater G-STRING thong FOR HIM – eBay (item 190300743490 end time May-13-09 19:09:48 PDT)

I’ve heard of A and B batteries. But now they are coming out with P batteries? Urine Battery Turns Pee Into Power.

Polar bear attacks woman at Berlin Zoo – CNN.com. It sounds like she deserved it though.

Penguin Ice and other stuff you need

April 14, 2009

Practical? Probably not. Do you need it? Of course: PENGUIN ICE BOX BUDDIES

You can buy one here: PENGUIN ICE BOX BUDDIES

Also you need an SSI shredder. Watch it shred cool stuff here: SSI Shredding Demonstrations.

I personally liked when it shredded soccer balls, the arcade game asteriods, and the cars. But feel free to find your own favorite shreds.

Or if you prefer destruction on a smaller scale, here is the website for you: Will It Blend? | Presented By Blendtec 

I know they tell you not to try this at home, but I really want to see for myself a blender destroying a set of golf clubs. Awesome. You’ll spend hours on this site, guaranteed.

A burger that I would head back to Michigan for: Mich. baseball park to offer 4,800-calorie burgers

And finally, really big things: Common objects. Uncommonly BIG sizes

If you sign up for their newsletter, they will give you a free giant pen (You do have to pay the 7$) worth of shipping and handling though. It is a really big pen.  It is 1.5ft long, and it does actually work as a pen in case that’s a selling point for you.

Lets eat miracle berries!

April 8, 2009

Why does that picture give me the urge to do that to all the stop signs I see?

I may never know. But what’s even more impressive: Toxel.com » Fruit Juice Packaging by Naoto Fukasawa

They are fruit juice packages that look and feel like the fruit inside of them. What a really great idea.

In other news, one of my favorite websites (thinkgeek.com) that has stuff you just “need” to buy stuff from has two products that I definitely see myself getting in the next couple weeks (if only someone will convince me that these actually work. 

ThinkGeek :: R2 Fish Training School Kit 

and even cooler than that: ThinkGeek :: Miracle Berry Fruit Tablet

These miracle berries make anything sour that you taste sweet. So lemons taste like lemonade, apple wine vinegar taste like apple juice, etc. And if you’re not quite sold, here is an article I found from someone who tried these berries: Miracle Fruit Review (NOTCOT)

Sure it sounds shady, but who doesn’t want to eat one of these berries and then head to a buffet with me?

In not at all surprising news of the week, a woman gets in three accidents in one hour: Motorist survives three accidents in an hour.

And in things that shouldn’t impress me, but somehow do: YouTube – Cannonball in mercury . 

For some reason seeing a cannonball float in any liquid will impress me. Despite years of science classes, and full knowledge of density, I am still amazed.

Lastly, I think I am going to start experimenting with google trends, despite this disturbing news: I really hope  google is wrong on this one… on Twitpic

Google trends is a relatively new part of the all and powerful google super-entity where you can find out how often people searched for certain topics on google. It’s like googling about google. How much better can you get than that?

Manatees, CH, Super powers, and Super villains.

Are the Pittsburgh Pirates really that horrible at baseball? : Manatee Community College forces Pirates to walk the plank – MLB – Yahoo! Sports

 

 

They lost to a community college called the Manatees last week. I don’t think it gets much worse than that. Could their be a bigger slap in the face? I guess it’s still better than what Kevin from college humor had to do this week.

Man do I love those college humor guys: What Will Kevin Do For Ricky’s Money: Special YES Edition – CollegeHumor Video

Any volunteers for someone to be my guinea pig in a similar experiment? You know you want a:  what will “insert your name here” do for money video series as well….

In other episodes they have him watch Beverly Hills Chihuahua 7 times, and eat an entire vending machine. Just type it into google if you feel the need to see those two.

In other news, apparently I don’t want super powers? 7 Awesome Super Powers (Ruined by Science) | Cracked.com

According to that article, most of the super powers that I have coveted in the past would in reality be all not too helpful. Oh well, I guess it is time to move on and wish for a different super power (like maybe Batman’s super power … extreme wealth). 

 

In other nerdy news, 7 Badass Cartoon Villains Who Lost to Retarded Heroes | Cracked.com . That’s right. I know you always felt like Dr. Claw should have been able to take on Inspector Gadget. Well here is a list of other instances where the villain seemed far superior, yet always seemed to get foiled in the end.

 

Lastly, cool Bathroom pictures : Creative Bathroom Creatives at Kontraband UK . I personally like the soccer urinal the best.

Squeeze bacon and eating animals

April 2, 2009

This is either the best product, or worst product in the market today : ThinkGeek :: Squeez Bacon®

 

Would someone be willing to try it for me and let me know how it goes? Thanks a million. I just can’t get up the nerve to try any bacon product that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. 

Also, it is pretty crazy to live in NJ. Only here will men try to rob liquor stores, and then cry about it when they fail : Man cries after attempt to rob liquor store fails.

At least we’re better than Romania. They’re considering legalizing incest: FOXNews.com – Romania Eyes Legalizing Consensual Incest . Gross.

Since I’ve just grossed you out ( as if incest and squeezable bacon weren’t bad enough), here is a video of a pelican eating a pigeon : YouTube – The Original Pelican Eats Pigeon. Or if that doesn’t float your boat, have you ever seen a turtle eat a pigeon? Well you will now : YouTube – Turtle Eating Pigeon!!! or a cow eating a duck: YouTube – Cow Eats A Duck . And only because you’ve already lost your appetite for the day: YouTube – Komodo Swallows Pig . 

Lastly, in case you though iRobot was too unrealistic: Video – The Robot Violinist 

Sure the robot is only playing a violin in this video, but once they’re smart enough to play a violin, why couldn’t they be smart enough to take over humanity?
