Walking On... Non-Newtonian Fluid?

I totally made this stuff when I was younger... Just not in such large quantities. (mix corn starch & water)

Treadmill Time!

These little guys are getting a workout.

Humans and Video Games, Closer Than Ever

Poor placement of that light blue and yellow. Rookie mistakes. 

Pong. Just as boring when performed by people.

I wish they had done better explosions when the space invaders hit the original ship. 

The overall best reenactment of a videogame has to be this, of Pac Man. It's very... interactive. 

Oh, Cheezburger, How I Love Thee

Those underage cats, always trying to sneak into bars..

Rubiks Cube Garlic

A cool, semi-stop motion video of spaghetti!

You Know, Because It's Just So Simple

Oh, just a brief explanation of a very quick practical joke, only involving a surface knowledge of computer technology and electronic wiring. 

Green Porno

Possibly not safe for work, but definitely for the environment!  

Isabella Rossellini, famous for her acting, modeling, and parents (Ingrid Bergman/Roberto Rossellini), created a series of vignettes on the reproductive process of various insects.  Intriguing, gruesome, and very educational - all of the videos are up on the Sundance Channel website.


If you don't find kittens adorable, skip to the 30second mark.

Bad Economy = Cheap Champagne

Drink up!  Champagne houses are seeing their revenue fall considerably, causing for price cuts early this season.

Oh Cheezburger, How I Love Thee

Lauded as the internet's piece de resistance, and the website's raison d'etre, Happy Cat is an eternal joy in my life. 

I have no comment for the current anarchic state of I Can Has Cheezburger, but the early days of the site were pure and AMAZING.  The entire site derived from this one image, the curious, indubitably jolly, gray, and rotund Happy Cat.  Eternally seeking, and rarely aquiring, he has but one purpose - the cheezburger.  

ICanHas gives a background on Happy Cat in their About section, showing a rare picture of Happy Cat in possesion of the prized cheezburger. 

Oh, Happy Cat, how I love you. 

Alarm Won't Turn Off Unless You've Passed PreSchool

While the info on this alarm clock thinks doing puzzles in the morning will help your brain,  I'd like something a little more challenging, please.

Attractive Girls Union

Lesson learned: Attractive Girls don't have to negotiate. 

Best quotes:

"At this juncture, we cannot negotiate with an individual who stares at us for half an hour before coming over to tell us he likes our shoes, and then stands there awkwardly. 

"He's begun doing 5 to 6 pushups per night, and has announced plans to start jogging soon."

"If he were dealing with the Slightly Overweight Frizzy Haired Girls Union or the Insecure Ugg Boots over Jeans Girls Union, it would be enough."

"Any other questions regarding my smile or my wave need to be directed towards my office."


A daily dose of Cute, probably always will originate from here

A Car. Made of Cake.

And Julie Andrews singing. Possibly a lethal combination of randomness.

I love the close shot of the making of the engine. 

Lick It Up

It's only right, now.

I Am Thankful for Rick Astley

If all I had to eat on Thanksgiving Day was this video on repeat, I would be very thankful.

I argued with myself for three minutes about whether or not to make this a true RickRoll post, but I didn't want anyone to not watch the video.  

The fact that the Thanksgiving Parade was RickRolled on purpose is amazing, but what makes it even better is the weird alien creature at the end screaming, "I LIKE RICK ROLLING." 

If you don't know what Rick rolling is, welcome to the internet.

Making a Statement

Scratch out Business Card

You know when someone hands you a scratch out business card, they have to be either doing so incredibly well they don't care if it looks unprofessional, or they're just incredibly awesome.

My boyfriend used to have waterproof business cards, the discovery of which, by new individuals, always resulted in water glass dunks at restuarant tables. 

Creative Bits had a really great post over a year ago featuring innovative business cards.  The post even spawned another feature in March of 2008.  This one included the business card for a divorce lawyer, complete with condom. 

A few highlights:


I Want to Simultaneously Rock Out and Chill Out

Apparently, this is the short version.  

I can't decide what my favorite part is, the little guy playing the head bongos, or the blue whale (especially the skull that comes out of his spout and turns into an octopus.)

The music/video is from Minilogue, a Swedish Progressive House/Tech-House/Minimal Techno group.  Their site has a few other videos up, and also some awesome artwork featuring clay animals similar to those in this video. 

Youtube has a higher quality version available as well. 

Mario Kart Love Song

It's basically a live version of the love note stuck inside your third grade desk (from the boy who would never admit to liking you).
