As the original linker said: I recognize most of the people in this video, which might be a surefire sign that it is time to disconnect ;). Quite. (Via Amber Mac) more »

Goofy, but apt, T-Shirts

09/11/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
I gave this one to Ritchie about a year ago; I'm now thinking about repossessing it as based on the referrer logs he's doing quite well on readership by stirring up the creationist stewpot! more »

Immortalize yourself in Lego

08/16/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
Well, not Lego per se, but you've seen the South Park character generator and people are pretty familiar with the Wii Mii's. Same thing, except it's a digital Lego minifig. And no, you can't see the one I created for myself. (Via Pharyngula) more »

Warcraft? The Australians are worried about "World of Warcraft" as a terrorist training program? You could try to sell me on "Counterstrike" or "Battlefield 2" where you can at least create virtual environments to practice in. Quoting an online game… more »

You wouldn't like me when I'm angry...

I've been trying to avoid the whole lolcats meme thing, but this one got me on two counts: 1) It's funny. 2) I have absolutely no idea what the animal pictured actually is but it does a great Monty Burns impression. more »

Well, technically I suppose all anti-gravity or perpetual motion engines inventions are novel as none actually work, but Wired has a nice graphic showing their stab at it based on two truisms: toast always lands butter side down, and cats always land on… more »
