Do You Think He Sawr Us?

Tinysaurs are little dinosaur models created by artist Kelly Farrell. They're cute as hell and you better believe I'm gonna' catch 'em all!

"Each one is laser cut out of oak tag board using a 35 watt cutting laser, and pre-perfed for (relatively) easy assembly - assuming you've got some really steady hands.

"The T-Rex, triceraptops, stegosaurus and woolly mammoth kits are all available over at Kelly's Etsy shop, the Maker's Market, or Everything Tiny and cost just $7 (USD) unassembled, and $16 with a pair of tweezers and glue in a handy gift tin."

Note: If you're a complete lazy-ass with no hand-eye coordination Kelly is also selling pre-assembled dinos in a little glass case for $60. I don't recommend those. You get no street-cred for buying things preassembled.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Gah!

Okay... look: here's Lady GaGa in London recently and screw her outfit. Check out the look on her bodyguard's face. There's a man who went straight home, told his daughter he loved her, then bought ten ponies and a Lamborghini just to make sure she got the message.

This is a $16 elemental bacon shirt. It spells 'BaCoN' through the clever placement of three periodic elements: barium, cobalt and nitrogen. And I think we can all agree: bacon would be a lot less popular if it actually were barium, cobolt and nitrogen.

Robots: they suck and they're going to kill us all. And this informational graphic proves it. I think. Granted I didn't bother reading it, but that's because I already know everything there is to know about robots (see first sentence).

Oh, George.

These USB lightsabers come in red and green, light up when you plug them in and will set you back $20 for 1GB of storage. Amazingly, they're actual Lucasfilm licensed products from Japan.

Spidey, NO!

Okay... okaaaaaaaaay... I have absolutely no idea what the hell I just watched, but I have the feeling it's the reason the internet was invented.

You get the feeling there's another half to this video, don't you?

Mr. Atoz

This is a brief history of the universe and life on earth in 3:12 entirely in flipbook form. It was created by student Jamie Bell for an art class and didn't require any nude models despite Jamie insisting he needed them.

Tequila? Unwise.

Thanks to being sucked into the vortex of an insane dwarf hellbent on splattering the world with its crazy, The Bodyguard Group was forced to issue a lengthy press release defending its credibility. This pretty much reads as basically every thing you've ever suspected about Tila coupled with the non-surprising fact that these poor bastards went through war zones and still couldn't tolerate her.

The Bodyguard Group Official Press Release

"For 43 years our Company The Bodyguard Group has never given an interview about any current or former client or written a letter such as in this instance, this is our first and ONLY press release, in fact 99% of our members work has NEVER been posted on our web site.

"However, at this juncture we felt it necessary to set the record straight about our dealings with Tila Tequila and her comments about us and the Hilton family and other Celebrities for the following reasons:

"Tila has serious self medication & emotional problems that we pray that she can get professional treatment and help with. The Bodyguard Group has tried a brief intervention with her once but failed to get through to her.

"As Combat Veterans we have seen our friends tragically die in combat before their time; Therefore we have a very high respect for life and for this reason we truly pray Tila can get help before it is too late.

"Although we felt and still do feel very sorry for her, when we saw the types of self medication she was taking and many other things we cannot talk about in this press release, we decided could we could NOT perform any work for her, but we did try and help by explaining to her she was going to overdose and die much too young like Heath, Anna, River and so many others who tragically died before their time, unless she changed her current self-medicating practices.

"When Tila told us she was broke and could not pay us, we gave her our services for free, we even arranged to take her to a high end jewelry & watch Pawn Shop so she could sell her extra rings and watches, to raise money for her family. We were deeply saddened to learn from the owner & head jeweler that her rings were not diamonds.

"She gave our company her word, no press, no paparazzi while we were there to give her a ride, she lied to us and had the paparazzi waiting for us when we walked out.

"We do not ever accept being lied to by a client, even if we are not getting paid, so that ended our relationship with Tila Tequila.

"We were NEVER aware of Tila tweeting negative things about The Hiltons and other Celebrities, until yesterday, that is why we are releasing this information today.

The father of Tila's baby

"We deny that our owner or any member of The Bodyguard Group is the father of Tila's baby, Tila told us the father of her baby is her high school sweetheart, a U.S. Army Combat Veteran, who served in Afghanistan and now lives in Texas.

"As for what Tila said that we said about Paris Hilton, Nikki Hilton, David Katzenberg, Bijou Phillips and several other Celebrities:

"The Hiltons have ALWAYS treated The Bodyguard Group members with 100% respect, every word Tila alleges that we have said about the Hilton's is 100% FALSE, Tila Tequila has been tweeting and saying we said negative things about Paris & Nikki Hilton, David Katzenberg, Bijou Phillips and several other Celebrities.

"We have NEVER said anything negative about Paris, Nikki or anyone else that our group has ever protected, met or known period.

"The fact is Paris Hilton, Nikki Hilton, the Hilton family, David Katzenberg, Bijou Phillips, Jon Voight, Jack Nicholson, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Keanu Reeves, Eva Longoria, Conan O' Brien and hundreds of other Celebrities we have had any contact with have ALL been OUTSTANDING supporters of the U.S. Combat Veteran members of The Bodyguard Group and we are grateful for their support.

All of these celebrities and more have been kind enough to have taken photos with our U.S. Veteran members of The Bodyguard Group and have always treated our U.S. Veteran members extremely well, We will never forget your acts of kindness towards our members and friends."

Don't Ever Lego!

I always wanted one of those split-heart necklaces that you and your BFF were each supposed to wear half of, but I never got the chance. You see, I've never had a BFF. Or for that matter, even an F. Click for BFFs!

Crying, Waiting... Mostly Crying, Really.

"The "11 stories of people crying in earnest", as the DVD's tag line states, include some that really don't seem so terrible but instead reflect the rigors of being an up & coming model in Japan's fiercely competitive "idol" culture:

* Marika, who was yelled at by her manager.

* Risa, who had been jilted by her boyfriend.

* Nana, who saw a bad picture of herself in a magazine.

* Shiho, who cried when her boyfriend said goodbye.

* Mai, who cried "touching the loneliness of the city"."
Wow, Japan... wow. You have officially crossed the line.
