Not A Hoax!

"All radio is dead, which means that these tape recordings I'm making are for the sake of future history... if any."

Happy Halloween!

That's Quite A Case Of Crabs!

"A vending machine offering live Shanghai Hairy Crabs, spotted on the streets of Nanjing.

"The inside of the machine is kept at 5 degrees celsius [41 Fahrenheit], a temperature cold enough to make the crabs go into a state of hibernation. A sign states that all the crabs in the machine are fresh: if the crab is dead-on-arrival, they promise to give you three free crabs."
Now, I know what you're thinking: "Oh my god -- I'll just kill my crab as soon as it comes out and get three free!" And that, my friends, is what I call thinking like an American. No wonder the rest of the world hates us.

Soooooooo #2

See the little dent in the can?
Yes, the one the red arrow's pointing to. It helps you open the beer without hurting your finger or chipping a nail. Plus, if you punch a key through it you can chug the beer faster. Yep, just another reason why Japan is better than us at pretty much everything except postponing the robot apocalypse.

Hey, Artoo!

"How long did it take you to carve R2-D2?
"It took somewhere between 10-11 hours. I started at 10:00 on Saturday morning and got done just after 10:00 that night, but taking in account eating and so forth, that's my estimate.

What goes into planning one of your pumpkins?
There's a difference between carving a pattern on a pumpkin, and a pumpkin sculpt. In the case of R2-D2, or the Deathstar, for instance, the pumpkin "is" the object, not just a portrait. So in thinking about carving R2-D2, I absolutely had to have a fairly tall, completely cylindrical looking pumpkin. I found one that weighed in at right around 40 lbs. Without this, there's no way I could have gotten the detail I was looking for."

"Big Fat Ugly (with mayo and ketchup) $25.00

"2 Rolls, 4 Cheeseburgers, Double Cheesesteak, Chicken Cheesesteak, Gyro Meat, Grilled Chicken, Bacon, Sausage, Mozzarella Sticks, Chicken Fingers, Chicken Nuggets, Mac N Cheese Bites, Fried Mushrooms, JalapeƱo Poppers, Pizza Bites, Onion Rings, Hash Browns, American Cheese, Mayo, Ketchup and French Fries."
My God that sounds delicious. A sandwich almost as big as a football? Count me in. Plus if you can pound one in under 15 minutes you eat for free! Sure you'll blow the back of your pants out and burn a hole in your car seat on the way home, but you ate for free.

About Last Night

From last night's The Simpsons.

It was probably pretty awkward for all the underpaid overseas animators to animate this:

Thanks Banksy!

A Pirate's Life For Me!

Publicity stunt? No doubt. But damn cool, you ask me. Those kids'll never forget the day Cap'n Jack Sparrow staggered into their classroom!

Mystery Date!

Because pretty much nobody asked for it, Star Wars merges with a '50s instructional film on dating, finally giving us a version of the films where, instead of siblings trying to save the universe from the Empire, Luke and Leia are just a couple lames going on a lame date. As George Lucas originally intended.

Unhear It is a website that plays random-ass remixes to help get the song that's stuck in your head unstuck. Granted it's just replacing it with another, but still.
