Living History... Or Wagering On It, At Least.

Huh. The Mormons only stayed two years? And though the Southern Paiute were there first, no mention is made of when exactly they moved on... or to where. But the good news is, someone installed a giant, mechanical dragon in 1990!

Things To Do In Denver With The Undead

Lookee! The latest in zombie apocalypse pie-charts, this one shows what you'll most likely be doing in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Not to brag or anything, but I'll almost certainly be in the little green pie-piece.

The Jerk

Steve Martin's "leaked" riders for his tour. And yes, he's 100% kidding.

Adam Must Be So Depressed

 San Francisco artist Chris Trueman is a sick, twisted genius.

 "I found a guy who raises ants and sells them as horned lizard food," he said. "The lizards need the folic acid. It's an artificial food source. If the lizards were in nature, they could get them from their own diet, but many of these lizards are kept as pets in cities like New York and San Francisco where they are hard to come by." [...]

"The ants arrived in a large peanut butter jar -- just this huge mass of rising ants," he said. "It was weird. I couldn't set them free. They weren't native to the area and if they bit someone, they would leave welts, and I couldn't feed them, so I had to kill them."

Peel n' Sip!

"The inventor of this disposable stemware actually took it on a show dedicated to finding cool new products, and it was rejected. The joke's on them; they're blowing up over in the UK. At £2.25 a glass (~$3.40) they're not exactly cost effective...

"...cost aside, the real advantage is in the simple fact that it's sealed and good to go. The foil top is like a yogurt container's, keeping your wine fresh and your legal status legit."

Better Saber Than Sorry

Because geeks  like arguing about things to show off their intellectual superiority (think nerdy peacocks), here's a visual guide to lightsabers so you can prove you're right when arguing with a fellow Star Warser at the bar over a cold Mountain Dew.

And, yes. I see the errors too.

Invasion Of The Body Counters

The Body Counters website keeps track of how many deaths there were in a particular film  so you can decide if it's worth watching or not. For example, in The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood only one person dies. NOT WORTH IT. But what about Jason X? Try 250,023 (including beating one person in a sleeping bag to death with another person in a sleeping bag, then that one against a tree). Winner!

Movie Magic Matters

From Night at the Museum director Sean Levy's Real Steel (a film that sounds like it takes Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots seriously), here's a first look at Hugh Jackman telling a boxing robot to punch another boxing robot... 'cause Hugh Jackman is the Burgess Meredith of the future. Or something.

Wax On, F*ck Off

If this doesn't make you laugh, it will at least make you say, "Man, Daniel-san's really been taking care of himself."

Everything Else Is Crap.

Hang up your thinking caps,  inventors, because you'll never top bacon pancakes... and they were invented  decades ago!

Brody Bunch

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, as with life, it's not until near the end of your Brodyquest that you truly realize the beauty in its purpose and the purpose in its beauty.

Happy Monday.

There IS A Substitute!

Sure it may look like a regular Porsche  GT3 wearing  a tinfoil helmet so aliens can't read its mileage, but it's actually a pedal-powered scale mockup.

What Took So Long?

Of course, you'll have to suffer through more non-staggered cheese triangles 'till July 1st, but you're a brave li'l toaster, aren't you? You'll be fine.
