Banana Injector

August 31, 2009

I know you are looking at this picture and thinking “why the heck would I want that?”. The answer is that this little device is a banana injector. It Cores the inside of bananas, and then fills that core with ice cream. Or if ice cream isn’t your thing, i guess it could also technically fill it with Chocolate Syrup, Peanut Butter, or maybe even marshmallow fluff. To read more about it:

It has been patented, yet no one has bought the patent yet. There should be one of these babies in every kitchen.

Boobs and Bears

August 27, 2009

In case you missed it this weekend, last Sunday was  National Go Topless Day (Don’t you put these things in your calendar?) Their argument is a pretty good one:

I agree that the mega dude on the left should have to wear a shirt, and that the lady on the left should have the choice of top or not. Unfortunately that is not how public decency works. Although I did learn from this day that  if you are topless in form of protest, that you cannot be arrested.  It must be “lewd” nudity to get you arrested.

In other “bare” news: Bears. See them doing awesome things on ice at the circus: Circus Bear

Or see them play hockey against each other: Hockey Bears

I just want to teach bears to snuggle and not eat me. These guys really went above and beyond in their bear training.

Speaking of Bears, here is an interview with one of my new heroes: Jeopardy guy

The College Humor guys interviewed him for doing this on Jeopardy:

How heroic. They didn’t even catch it! I tried writing my name like a schlong, but failed miserably.

Lastly, in case you’ve been sleeping too soundly the past week, here is something else to give you the heebie jeebies.  Robots have the ability to form human-like societies under laboratory settings. I knew iRobot was Non-fiction. Robo societies.

Video Game Fossils

August 11, 2009

More stuff I “need”:

Dexteludicrum repuerasco (grey)

That’s right, it is a fossilized Gameboy. I guess I would also settle for a fossilized SNES or Playstation. Luckily those are also available if I desire them enough:

Christopher Locke’s Heartless Machine – Modern Fossils.

For a mere 25 – 200$ these artifacts can be yours. Now if only I can find a website to sell me a full size Velociraptor fossil….

Futurama is back!

August 6, 2009

Good news everyone. Futurama will be back on the air in 2010! :

‘Futurama’ Is Back! Grab a Can of Slurm and Settle In . And they resigned many of the original voice actors. I know this news isn’t weird in any way, but it is valuable information that needs to be passed on.

 

Ever wonder how many drinks of such and such it would take to kill you? Well now you can have an answer. The website estimates that it would take 17 shots of whiskey in about 3 hours to kill me. Or approximately 24 bottles of Bud light. So what I’m hearing is I should drink a 12 pack of beer, and I’ll only end of half dead. If you’re curious about how much alcohol it would take to kill you, click away: How much booze would it take to kill you? Created by Bar Stools

 

In other beer related news, apparently NJ sucks at drinking. Here is a map of annual beer consumption by state:

I am going to blame our inadequacies on the high population density.

 

In even more alcohol related news: New technology lets mothers hold replicas of their babies while they are still in the womb. It sounds like something out of a science fiction novel.Foetus 12 weeks - rapid prototype model and ultrasound

Man is building a life size house out of Legos. Why did no one think of this sooner? And is it really any less expensive than using the usual materials?

Unfortunately it is not yet finished, so I couldn’t find any pictures of it quite yet.

 

Lastly, I love it when we discover real life creatures that look like monsters. Apparently 3 million other people on youtube agree with me.

They are really darn creepy. Even creepier than eels (If that were somehow possible)

What a creepster.
