You may not believe it from your own personal experience, but I guarantee that these people are watching more Shark Week programming than you are. In fact, I'd say few others are more dedicated to shark culture than these fellows.
Snow-cones aren't just for kids anymore. Summer may be over in just a few weeks, but that's even more of an incentive to take full advantage of it with these chilling beverages. They're easier to make than you think--especially when you're drunk!
Why did Benjamin Franklin fly that kite? It may not be entirely historically accurate--as I'm unsure whether Franklin invented electricity after getting drunk off Hennessey--but it sounds like a pretty great revision of history, if you ask me.
Spider-Man is dead. Long live Spider-Man. Apparently diversity is all fine and dandy until Marvel actually implements it.
At first blush it makes little sense for early and even growth stage company financings to be driven by the cycle in the public markets. After all, if you are doing a Series A, B or even C financing it is usually with the expectation that the compa…
Sharks are so misunderstood. Humans can't breath under water, right? Oh God, he's drowning!
So, Kim Kardashian's mom had a song in the '80s. It's basically the worst song ever. It is insane.
Stupid dogs. Bubbles aren't enemies. Bubbles aren't even dangerous.
An African American student from predominantly white Red Wing High School in Minnesota is suing the school district for failing to prevent a student-organized event called Wigger Day. Quera Pruitt says that students of Red Wing would celebrate Wigger Day, also known as "Wangsta Day," by coming to the homecoming dance sporting "oversized sports jerseys, low-slung pants, baseball hats cocked to the side, do-rags and gang signs." Pruitt's lawsuit claims that school officials turned a blind eye to the event and let it happen three years in a row. Reminds me of this moldy old meme.
Holy egos, Spock! They were fated to star together on this failed buddy comedy based on Alexander the Great (wut?) from 1964. A clip from the pilot shows William Shatner and Adam West sharing screen time
and fueling fanfics. Somehow the technology of the past was able to withstand this much awesome in one frame.
I'm in a weird mood today.
Other than wishing for death. Most of us take air conditioning for granted. After all, it's always been there and it always will be. But until sixty years ago, it was virtually unheard of. But yet we did not, as a people, succumb to lethargy and sunstroke.
I'm just surprised it took this long.
An Oklahoma woman named Marla Cooper has come forward to say that she is the helpful person of interest who has provided the new lead in legendary D.B. Cooper case, claiming it was her late uncle who successfully skyjacked a plane in 1971. He probably stashed the $200,000 in his sideburns.
Anybody who has been to a major European city (and New York is starting to catch up stateside) can tell you how true this is. Big Brother is on every corner. Or in this case he's everywhere on one corner.
Today is President Obama's 50th Birthday. To honor his transformation from statesman to elder statesman here are the 50 best photos from the White House's awesome Flickr Stream.
This is why Al Gore invented the internet.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie defends his appointment of Muslim-American Sohail Mohammed to the state bench with totally justified indignation. Republican or Democrat, it's refreshing (in this day and age, etc.) to see a politician calling out the racists in no uncertain terms rather than dancing around the topic.
I don't care if this is real or not. Thurgood Meddlethorp is both a vision of masculinity and named after a one-eyed vagrant. That means both he and this bio must be shared.
When Star Wars finally passed Jaws as the most rented movie of all time, Spielberg took out a full page ad in Variety to congratulate his friend. And the image shows what we all need to remember during this, the holiest of Shark Weeks: Droids>Sharks.
The urinal needs a facelift. It's long past time. I think we can all agree this proposed version is better. So let's send this along to President Obama and he can make it happen. Because that's how laws and countries work. Right?
Is this really a practical amount of strings? Keith Medley created and, in this video, plays his epic guitar. Awesome or ridiculous?
Blink-182's New Music Video Is Made Exclusively From YouTube Clips That Featured Their Music Without Permission
I've never been much of a Blink-182 fan, but this is really cool. The band has just released the music video to their first single in years, "Up All Night," and to reward their fans, they've made it exclusively from clips people have posted to YouTube that used their music without permission. It's really cool to see a band not lash out at people using their music creatively, but endorse it in such a loud way. The song isn't bad either.
A beautiful little short film from 3 guys traveling across 11 different countries over the course of 44 days. BRB, booking a few flights.
Newly discovered photos currently on display in Berlin at the Morgen Contemporary Gallery show East German secret police in various disguises. The photos, originally part of an internal course called "the art of disguise" are ridiculous. They all look like costume tests for a Steve Martin movie. That or the photo evidence of the average Brooklyn man's wardrobe.
That kid doesn't look racist. In fact, it's almost like nobody is born racist.
