The genius of the Asylum Street Spankers from Austin, TX takes on cheap ass patriotism with this none-to-subtle song and dance routine.

People that know me are aware of the fact that I spent a good chunk of my life in close proximity of Detroit. While living within 30 miles of the city, I only made into Detroit on several occasions, and each time I was in awe. 

This website shows the beauty in the destruction and certainly makes a strong case for restoring, not rebuilding Detroit.  Detroit was once a first class city, and could be again. Browse the site and check out the arciteture, history, and culture of Detroit today and in the good ole days.

This site is pretty cool place where I’ve already wasted about an hour. The accent archive has 113 samples of people from different areas of the country reading a paragraph to illustrate the accents of these given areas. There are also other languages and people of other nationalities reading the paragraph in English on this site. Give it a look, there are many interesting accents to hear, eh err…don’t cha know.

What determines your drinking style? Is it your job or life style? Absolutely not, it is your astrological sign. This site describes your drinking style based on your sign, and I was very suprised at it’s acuracy.

Give it a whirl, and tell what you think. As a sagittarius, I have to say this is amazingly accurate.

This site is a modern pioneer for those who want the flavor and texture of human flesh, yet don’t want the inconvience of obtaining said food. With an entrepreneurial spirt and a bit of compassion for his fellow man (both predator and prey), Mark Nuckols is taking food (err…Tofu) to places it’s never been.  This product is not only good for the guilt ridden cannibal, it’s also good for the cannibal on the go. Who has time to either go hunt somebody down, butcher, cook, and eat them? I know I don’t (but then again, I’m not a cannibal, it may be a bigger priority in thier lives). This is perfect for the cannibal that is hungry, but has to be at a meeting in half an hour. Whatever the reason for a cannibal purchasing this product, the rare vegetarian cannibal or the time pressed, I’m sure that this prodcut will be met with resounding success. How could it not?

Okay, this site is probably a joke, but you never know, I mean it did get a write up in The Dartmouth (Dartmouth is a place where a bunch of smart people get together and learn stuff). So I’m going to go along with it, I may have gotten burned by Ninja Burger, however, I didn’t have Dartmouth on my side that time. If I’m fooled this time, I’m in good company.

Being frozen for 32,000 years has a tendency to kill most life forms.  That is, unless that life form is a “new” species of bacteria discovered in an artic tunnel, as this article details. The discovery gives scientists hope that the recently discovered ice ocean on Mars holds forms of life in this suspended state, which would provide an interesting look into life on that planet and how it differes from similar life forms on earth. Another major point of interest to scientists is that the enzyme and proteins that these bacteria use to reanimate themselves once they thaw could prove useful in preserving tissue samples and useful in cryogenic freezing technologies.

Whale Hunting in Utah

by Souped_up_on_Jihad on March 1, 2005 · 1 comment

Whale hunting has traditionally been done on water all through it’s history. One man out there wants to change that, while committing a cross country crime spree. Starting at alcatraz prision off the coast of California Richard Smith will travel across this great land breaking strange laws that are on the books in each state he visits until he arrives in Hartford,CT

.

I’ve always been somewhat amused by hearing about the odd laws still on the books in some places, but I never had the idea to actually break these laws, not to mention planning a trip around that very task.  Some of my favorites that he plans to break (besides hunting whales in Utah) are playing cards against a Native American in Globe, Arizona and Giving lighted cigars to house pets in Zion, Illinois. The story has more details, so I’ll let the link fill you in on the rest.

Every Calvin and Hobbs Cartoon, EVER

I’ll keep this post simple. I love Calvin and Hobbs, as many people love Calvin and Hobbs.  Some people don’t like Calvin and Hobbes, but those same people are often violent serial killers who like to hit people on the head with a hammer. 

For the rest of us, here’s an archive of every Calvin and Hobbs comic Bill Waterson was nice enough to create for us. Ahhh, how I miss this cartoon.

Okay, I’m on a personal liberties kick today, I’ll admit that. But this article angered me when I read it, so I thought I would pass it along to you. The Surpeme Court passed down a ruling today that makes it legal for the police to use a dog to search your car for drugs, even without probable cause. Since the dog doesn’t enter your car and only sniffs around the perimiter, six justices ruled this to be a legal search.

My question is, if the dogs pick up the scent outside of your car, how does this allow them to search inside your car? This specific ruling in and of itself isn’t scary, but when you think about how fast technology is moving, it can be very scary.
