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:

American Beer Consumption Per Capita: By State (Infographic) | Sloshspot Blog.

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

Foetus models: New scanning technique lets an expectant mother hold her unborn baby – Telegraph.

 

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.

Farewell Taco Bell Dog

July 27, 2009

In the saddest news of the summer, Gidget, aka the Taco Bell Dog,  has bit the dust :

You can see the 2-minute video about it on cnn here:

Taco Bell Dog Video – Breaking News Videos from CNN.com. I know just how to mourn this tragedy. (I am going to go eat some Taco Bell just in case I wasn’t being clear enough.)

In deaths I am sick of hearing about: Michael Jackson. Because Micheal jackson will always be with us… he is not biodegradable. If I am going to have to hear about it nonstop, let us at least make light of the situation with some good old Michael Jackson jokes :

Dead Michael Jackson Jokes | CelebJihad.com – Explosive Celebrity Gossip!.

 

Ok, so I feel a little bad for posting that. In order too balance out the malicious with the nice, here is a cool tribute to MJ:

Eternal moonwalk – A tribute to Michael Jackson. If anyone wants to add a video tribute with me, I’d be more than happy to oblige.

 

In other anticlimactic news, there has finally been a video release of LeBron James “getting dunked on” I use those quotations because the video shows that he was barely even defending the guy, and the whole charade surrounding this video is just absurd :

Witnesses at last: Video of LeBron James getting dunked on – Ball Don’t Lie… – NBA – Yahoo! Sports.

In other absurd news, here is a ridiculous news story about a bear in Cleveland. I forgot how stupid everyone in Ohio is, including reporters :

Ridiculous News Report About Bears In Cleveland – DoubleViking Video .

The reporter’s reenactment is just priceless.

 

Lastly, I will share some awesome photography with you all (not be me of course). The first is a picture by Michael Hudgen who includes souvenirs into pictures of famous things. For example:

You can see the rest of Michael Hudgen’s pictures here :

 Or if that is too cheesy for your taste, maybe you’d prefer super slow motion pictures of  a bubble bursting? That’s what I thought :

I needs it

July 20, 2009

Hey All,

I decided to add a new set of postings called “Things I need”. Often I find things on the internet that either I “need”, or that one of you “need”, so this will give me a chance to share those things without making a long post of all the interesting articles, pictures or weirdo games that are available on the internets.

First needed Item: No-wash underwear. For only 10 bucks they are practically irresistible. Don’t you get annoyed at how often you have to wash underwear. Unlike shoes, you have to wash them every time you use them. Man is that a hassle. Well, not anymore. 

You can buy them at:  NO-WASH™ UNDERWEAR Home Page.

Terrible Tats and Asia is fricken weird

July 16, 2009

Recently one of my associates at work made the big mistake of getting a permanent tattoo on her body. To honor that mistake, I found a site that has other people who made a mistake by getting these terrible animal tattoos on their bodies. Although I have to say that I do l0ve this tattoo that has the Taz riding on a unicorn : Hey Look, Animals!: 22 Worst Animal Tattoos Ever

In other news, here are six islands I won’t be visiting anytime soon: 6 Real Islands Way More Terrifying Than The One On ‘Lost’ | Cracked.com

Not that i am much of a beach person anyway.

Weird event happens in Asia, somehow I am not the least bit surprised: Sky ‘rains tadpoles’ over Japan – Telegraph

At least it wasn’t Godzilla. And in other weird Asian news, Cat Cafes have become all of the rage:

Tokyo Cat Cafes | Calico. Actually this seems like a brilliant idea. People are lonely and want a pet, but don’t want to responsibility to have a pet of their own. So they pay to touch your pets. Very smart thinking Tokyo.

I have plenty channels on my television, and yet I can’t help but wish that I could get this Turkish television program broadcast on my TV (in English of course, I don’t speak Turkish to my knowledge) :

Zombies in boring books and Glow in the dark Beagles

July 2, 2009

Someone finally wrote a version of Pride and Prejudice I would actually read. It’s called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

You can buy it on Amazon and everything: Amazon.com: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!: Jane Austen, Seth Grahame-Smith: Books.

They should do this with almost all the books I had to read during high school.

I love when former NASA technology plays a role in bra creations. What were the odds?

You can read about it here: Wahey and up she rises | The Sun |Woman|Health|Health

and here:Well hello boys! It’s the smart bra that just grows on you | Mail Online.

Also this week, I happened to see a tv show on spike (big shocker) called Man Vs. Beast. On it Kobayashi entered a hot dog eating contest against a Kodiac bear, Shawn Crawford raced a giraffe and a zebra, An Elephant and 44 midgets competed in pulling a plane, An Orangutan and a sumi wrestler in tug of war,  and a US seal raced a chimp through an obstacle course.

Instead of telling you what happened, I found the videos online of such shenanigans:

YouTube – Man Vs. Beast Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi Vs. Oso Kodiak.

YouTube – Sumo Vs Orangutan.

YouTube – Elephant vs. Little People.

YouTube – Man vs Beast Shawn Crawford racing.

YouTube – Chimp vs. Navy Seal.

And from the 2nd man vs. beast: 

YouTube – Man vs Beast 2 – Gymnast vs Orangutan

 

And if all that animal news excites you, wait till you hear this. The Koreans have cloned a beagle, except just for fun, it also glows in the dark! Ok, so they did it for the good of the scientific community, yada yada. I just think they needed a flashlight…

Hot prison pals and fish inside a willy wacker.

June 16, 2009

This reminds me of every forward I have ever gotten from my aunt or mother:

In case of emergency, break out the bacon assault rifle: 

 

 

I knew Chewbacca was a giving wookie.

 

And the swine flue jokes just keep on pouring in: 

swine flu affects us all by lvs2ridehorses.

I hope they make this product in adult sizes:

 

Okay, enough with the pictures. Here is what you are really after, bizarre internet links.

At first I thought this was fake, but after reading through the website, these prisoners are super real:

HotPrisonPals.com — Meet the pen pal of your dreams here. You’ll be glad you did!.

Hopefully they won’t hunt me down and kill me for mocking their website. 

Also, I knew there was a reason that I didn’t like fish:

Zombie Outbreaks and Penguin Poop

June 3, 2009

I may enjoy my job, but in case of a zombie outbreak, it is clear that i would need a new one. Well apparently here are the choices: Jobs in Zombie Outbreak – Zombie Survival & Defense Wiki. 

The site also has some good advice on how to survive, and what to eat in case of a zombie out break.

This video here reminds me of all the Andy Samberg videos, except it is soley about food, and done by 20-somethings. How lovely: YouTube – InTheBoxPresents’s Channel . I’ve definitely felt the way they do about food, and who hasn’t shared their undying love for bacon?

Or maybe you would prefer a food court musical? :YouTube – Food Court Musical

And in big video game news, Microsoft is going to release an add-on product to their XBOX 360’s called Natal, where you don’t even need a controller to play video games. if that isn’t revolutionary, I don’t know what is!  You can read about it here: Microsoft will make Xbox games without controllers – CNN.com

 And Sony is trying to imitate the Wii’s success as well: Sony, Nintendo unveil game offerings at E3 – CNN.com

In even better news: Search Google and Wikipedia at the Same Time With Googlepedia Browser Add-on – washingtonpost.com.

I’ve always dreamed of such technology, and now it has finally arrived. Thank you google and wikipedia!

Zombie Fire Ants and other monsters

May 18, 2009

Although I don’t recommend going there no matter what the distance may be.

Speaking of monsters, another “monster” washed up along Long Island again :

Montauk Monster sighting refuels Plum Island rumors — Newsday.com. I’m sure it’s just a goat that lost a lot of fur from being in the water too long. Plus, they already look a little bit monster-like already.  

Agreed? 

An even cooler thing I’ve just heard about for the first time: Zombie Fire Ants. That’s right, fire ants wondering around with no brains (Unlike the last story, there is no way this one is a hoax).

Yeah, he got it from Miss Piggy.

Sometimes it’s just tough to resist. Or if that joke wasn’t for your taste, maybe you’d prefer:

In other news, the administration at a Lititz, PA high school made a big boo boo:
