1. I Should Probably
I'm interrupting this long dry spell (which was meant to be a short reprieve, but that's another story) manly because I'm sick of looking at those freaking furries.
2. Change the Name
But I also wanted to tell you that I really like these small collages I came across on Flickr.
5. Updated Daily Anymore
Anyway, if the artist happens to see this and wants to leave some comments filling us in on the nature of her work, that would be great. If she wants to send me a collage that would be even better. I think I'm going to start collecting original 6x6 works of art right now.
If you don't know about furries from the numerous 'expose' type reports on them by your local broadcast affiliates or from other sources, good for you. Unfortunately, you probably do know what furries are. Here are some pics for you to tsk/laugh/eye-roll/ogle at. The furry webmaster here is pretty old school with the galleries though.
4. Furry love?
You've seen these before. This one's furry heaven.
5. Trigger happy furries
This show seems to have been under-appreciated. You can watch a whole crapload on google video though.
1. Crazy religious
This is awesome. If you don’t believe it, I hope you don’t mind spending eternity in space-hell.
2. Crazy “verbal self-defense”
Why all the feudin’ and a fussin’? This site really goes deep with the crazy, so dig for it.
3. Crazy Ling’s contract hire cars
If I ever visit wherever Ling runs this place, I’m definitely renting a car from her. Who wouldn’t after checking this site out? It’s got something for everyone. Even for people who think Josef Stalin was a “kind and benign world leader.”
4. Crazy science
This is really another religious site but the science is unassailable!
5. Crazy awesome splash
I honestly haven’t been past the first page of this site but I can’t stop playing with it. Maybe you’ll get beyond the rad interface…
1. Radioactive Boyscout, indeed.
David Hahn is no longer an Eagle Scout but that hasn't affected his tenacious grip on his scouting glory days. When I first heard of him, I assumed he was a genius. Now, he just seems pathologically focused. Now, maybe he can sew a "Rap Sheet" badge right next to the "Nuclear Energy" one he earned as a kid.
2. Don't play with it...
This story is sad, but you have to wonder about people who would handle a luminescent powder. (Also, history.com's "this day in history" thing is pretty cool.
3. Tingling wrist?
This is not altogether unknown, but it's an interesting tidbit that many people are ignorant of.
Now here's a watch that most people don't know about. It could save your life. For real! Think about it.
5. Idiot poisoning.
Here's a 'Darwin Awards' type story. Depending on your sense of humor, it's sad and interesting or funny and interesting. (I didn't link to the original source article because I think 'geeks with guns' is a funny site name.)
1. Zombie Movies
Zombies have become pretty popular in Hollywood in the last few years. Here's a rundown of some of the higher profile upcoming zombie movies. These are all mostly major studio releases, but for the independent film maker, it seems that the zombie film is a no-lose proposition. You'll almost definitely be able to sell your movie as a direct to DVD title, and zombie fans will watch pretty much anything, so it doesn't matter it your movie sucks.
2. Vegetarian Zombies
This is really kind of stupid. I'm not totally sure how a "pun" is defined, but I think this is pretty close, and I'm sure that puns aren't really funny. Still, I did chuckle a little bit under my breath.
3. An Everlasting Covenant
I guess this could be construed as sac religious. Or it might be a critique of organized Christianity. Or it might be a satire of a classic work of art. Or the guy might have jut thought it was a funny idea.
4. Heat Signature.
This video is kind of creepy, but you can tell it isn't real because everyone knows that zombies do not register as warm bodies on infrared cameras.
5. Army-men of the Dead
These might seem kind of cool, but I have to state clearly that I think $15.00 plus shipping is way too expensive for some stupid glow-in-the-dark zombie toys.
1. Great White
Is it still shark week? It doesn't really matter because sharks aren't as tough as people think they are. Here's a story about the king of the cartilaginous killing machines getting pwned by a soccer dad.
2. Bronze Whaler
Nothing like being caught by a drunk's bare hands to take the edge off of that tough
11-year-old girl...'nuff said.
Not just the largest shark, but the largest fish. You'd think these things would eat 10 or 11 humans a day. No, these wimps are practically vegetarians (krill.)
This one's not contributing to the terrifying image of sharks at all. Quite the contrary. Honestly, a Segway? He may as well be riding a recumbant bicycle.
1. The Google Bandits
Some people were making fun of these crooks for trying to disable security cameras by spraying them with WD-40. Admittedly, that is pretty stupid, but when faced with a different safe than the one they had planned on cracking, these guys had the smarts to use the power of google to get into the safe and make off with $12000.
2. Go Vespa Go
After seeing these vintage Vespa commercials, I'm surprised than anyone ever bought one.
3. Pick Axe
The main reason I got such a low score on this guitar/player matching quiz is because I confused the name "Rick Nielson" with "Ricky Nelson."
4. Muffler Man
The Muffler Man section of Roadside America has become super comprehensive. It now includes a list of movies and TV shows which feature these giants, a nice interview with the one-time owner of the fiberglass company which produced them, and a map to track locations. Apparently, Illinois is a prime Muffler Man viewing state.
No one knows where this coupon originated, but a lot of people have used printouts of it to save money on dvds at Best Buy. Many have reported multiple copies at one time even though it says "do not double" and "one offer per customer" right on it. Others have used it to buy the X-Files sets that are on sale for $19.99 regardless of the standard "not valid with other offers" fine print. I'm going to try using it on the 3rd season of Arrested Development tomorrow.
1. All Beef?
After all my accusatiions, Kobayashi decided to show up at Nathan's hot dog eating contest after all. Unfortunately, he faced exactly what I believe he wanted to avoid; Joey Chestnut, who blasted past the record and ate 66 hot dogs. I'm not sure why I can't get behind this guy. I should be supporting the American I guess, but Kobayashi is just so freaking cute that I can't root against him.
I've been watching a lot of HBO's Entourage lately, so the first fictional movies I thought of were Head On, Queens Boulevard, Aquaman and Medellín.
3. ESP Envy
With all the poker, dominos, strongman and lumberjack games they show on ESPN these days, I watch it quite a lot more than I ever did before. Now they're adding Rock, Paper, Scissors coverage to make me watch just a little bit more.
4. Barking Mad Bank Robber
What is the best disguise to wear when robbing a bank? I'm not sure, but it turns out that making yourself a tree costume out of leaves and twigs doesn't work that well.
1. Amok Monkey
A Jewish girl's school in India was invaded by a rampaging monkey running around stealing food from the girls and grabbed onto their clothing, preventing them from fleeing. My favorite quote: "When one girl tried to resist, it slapped her."
2. Monkey Bandits
This headline could be the title of an uproarious direct to video movie. Unfortunately, it is really in reference to a helper monkey that was stolen from a disabled woman by a group of four men in a black SUV.
3. Black Death
Did anyone know that the bubonic plague still existed? Would anyone suspect that it could be passed from squirrels to monkeys? Can you believe it happened in Denver?
4. Prison Break
After escaping from his enclosure, and injuring at least four people, Bokito the gorilla took time out for a leisurely lunch on the terrace of nearby restaurant.
5. Battle of the Sexes
It turns out that silverback gorillas aren't really as tough as you thought they were.
1. Tame Foxes
John Lithgow explains how unnatural selection, the act of selectively breeding animals for desirable qualities, can produce unexpected results. The interesting thing is how quickly these changes occur. The research has led a lot of people to question the accepted evolutionary theory of the family dog beginning with the domestication of the wolf. The molecular evidence seems pretty clear that dogs evolved from wolves rather than jackals or coyotes, but I can't find any reference to a similar study done to look for a dog/fox biological connection.
2. Gator Eats Dog
Pet costume designers now have a new standard to shoot for.
Jamming these tetris-esque game pieces together isn't that hard at the beginning, but eventually the pieces get a smaller and smaller while growing in number making it much harder to piece them together properly.
4. Prison Break
An opportunistic panda sees his chance and makes a break for it.
