Violent video games are good for us. And more of it.

Very weird optical illusion

China behind 9/11?

By request, Darwin Awards. Here's a man who died as a result of his cell phone. Stupid Human Tricks is a nice list of short ones.


Weasel traffic signs, courtesy of Dilbert. Then of course there is always the Weasel Competition and once you're done with that you can buy weasel stuff.

Everything you know is wrong. Even if you don't take the quiz, read the answers, they're interesting.

Place your bets on when we attack Iraq here, cash prize involved.

"TOY shops are under fire for selling a range of monster-like dolls that it is claimed could encourage violence in children. The terror toys, called Stretch Screamers, let out horrifying screams when pulled by the arms and legs. When strangled, their brains and eyes pop out of their heads." Yeah...ok....I know that would make me more violent...obviously they don't notice that kids always have action figures kill each other anyway.

The world's ugliest vehicle.

And the censorship begins. You can't link to these sites.

Teacher earned $26 million an hour.

Haha, even cosmonauts have to fill out census forms.

Israel launched two missiles at Gaza City. "Witnesses said a car took a direct hit, and explosions set fire to a second vehicle. Gaza hospital officials said at least 27 people were wounded, six of them seriously.
The two cars were reduced to tangles of metal. Local residents pulled body parts from the smoking wreckage and held them aloft, shouting in fury.

Life on Venus? Maybe its some evil alien bacteria spore that we will go to research and it'll wipe out everyone unless we stop it! Or maybe its algae or something.

Most flirting is now done over text messaging on phones. I think a lot is done over instant messaging too though.


Videos of the firing of Grable. Grable was a nuclear weapon launched from an artillery cannon...quite a punch. "The Atomic Cannon, at 280 mm, was the largest nuclear capable mobile artillery piece manufactured by the United States. On May 25, 1953, a 280 mm cannon fired an atomic projectile a distance of 7 miles at the Nevada Test Site. Twenty 280 mm cannons were manufactured. None were used in battle."

Monkey!

Some of the scariest things ever. Half of you won't forgive me if you see the link:)

"Why stop at a muppet with AIDS"


Zen gardens are cool. "The garden's 15 rocks are of various sizes, placed in five separate groupings. The white gravel that surrounds them is raked every day; perfect circles around the rocks, perfectly straight lines in the rest of the space. The rocks are arranged so that no matter where a visitor stands, only 14 can be seen. It is said that only when you attain spiritual enlightenment as a result of Zen meditation will you see the 15th stone."

More info into how Google News works.

"Tis Time to kill any educator who does not teach Cubicism above cubelessness. To save humanity from extinction, like prior civilizations perished, youth must redirect self teachers, or destroy them." This guys a freaking wacko.

The header alone for this makes it funny. "Kids burning bus shelters to get high"

Seagulls taste like chicken. Although I don't think I'd enjoy eating them much...rats of the sky, up there with pigeons and bats:)

You too can create records for a measly price of only $5000. Or you can just burn cds with a $80 burner and a $1 cd...whichever.

"When a Greek sponge diver called Elias Stadiatos discovered the wreck of a cargo ship off the tiny island of Antikythera in 1900, it was the statues lying on the seabed that made the greatest impression on him. He returned to the surface, removed his helmet, and gabbled that he had found a heap of dead, naked women. The ship's cargo of luxury goods also included jewellery, pottery, fine furniture, wine and bronzes dating back to the first century BC. But the most important finds proved to be a few green, corroded lumps—the last remnants of an elaborate mechanical device" Very interesting what they found down there. Only now are they starting to understand what exactly it was.



"Scientists have discovered a crystal that answers back. They sent a sound wave into the material, there was a quiet pause, then it suddenly emitted the same sound." Could be fun to make a room out of it that echos back after you say something. Or maybe there is a way to store sounds in it longer and retrieve them with an electrical charge, might make for an interesting voice recorder.

Well, I added a comments link for the things I post, so if you can't actually post articles, etc. to the page you can still comment on things.

So stupid

Disney wants to be merged with AOL. This means CNN would be merging with ABC. Official transcript of upcoming news bulletin;)

Announcer: "We have Mickey Mouse here, live from Afghanistan."
Mickey: "Well uh guys, huh huh, looks like these people here fighting need some mousketeer ears!"
Cluster bomb goes off and Mickey suddenly disappears from the screen. Zoom in on a pair of ears and a bowtie.

Alright, so maybe it wouldn't be so bad.

For those of you that know how easy it is to change rulers in Britain. Tony Blair, the current Prime Minister, is losing popularity due to his stance with Bush on Iraq.

Stop, drop, and roll. I only hope these guys managed to eliminate any future chance of breeding and passing on their stupidity to future generations. "Being totally stupid is not a crime."

A lawsuit over plagiarizing silence... Lawsuits are so stupid these days. Even more and warning labels that surely resulted from other random acts of stupidity. "On a bag of Fritos: You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside." :)

New version of Kazaa out allows unlimited bitrates, less misnamed files, and makes it easier to download "playlists"(in other words, whole albums) all at once, along with a bunch of other things like skins, etc. Not sure if the hacked, ad free version, KazaaLite is up to date yet though.

In the Persian Gulf war, Israel got hit by 39 Iraqi Scud missiles, with no response. However, this time: "I don't think there is a scenario in which Israel will get hit and not strike back," a senior Western official said." And a little overview of the whole thing.
