Campus Survival Cookbook Page 25

That image is from Page 25 of The Best Cookbook Ever, aka “The Campus Survival Cookbook” by Jacqueline Wood & Joelyn Scott Gilchrist (William Morrow & Company, 1973). While not condescending in the least, it assumes you know little about cooking, own few cooking utensils, don’t know how to shop for groceries or what staples you need. It also assumes that you’re on a tight budget and even provides shopping lists. It’s out of print, but there are used copies out there, and no, you can’t have mine.
[Beware of the freebee .pdf’s – MalwareBytes threw a hissy when I tried to download a copy.]

The Seven Tone Fart Symphony is awesome.

Flying houses [via].

2.2 lb burrito swallowed in 1 minute 44 seconds.

Ancient Islamic depictions of Mohammed.  Don’t worry. You won’t be beheaded for looking at history, at least in the one remaining country with Freedom of Speech. Here’s the full archive. Download them all before The Powers That Be decide that they are hate speech, and God Forbid it ever comes to that. [BTW, Zombie is brilliant.]

This is disturbing.

LMAO. AGW is a fraud, a transparent hoax that has nothing to do with science and everything to do with confiscation of your income. Check this out.

George Carlin on Global Warming [warning – strong language].

Can you say “indoctrination?” Here’s the Reverend Jesse Jackson on Sesame Street. Really.

“Remember when you stuck my nose in it when I was a puppy? I do.”

I saw an insect yesterday I’d never seen before. It was about 2-inches long, the size of a large grasshopper. It had pumpkin-colored wings that laid flat on its back, and a shiny black body with a sky-blue band on the top of its abdomen. It crawled into a patch of dead rye grass that we’re growing on the side of the garage, so I pulled the grass out to get a better look and disturbed it. It flew off, with orange dragonfly wings and black dangling legs, obviously a wasp. It was a Tarantula Hawk, and I’ll never mess with one again. Here’s one description of what it’s like to be stung.

But then there are bullet ants.

So you’re in the Outback on walkabout and you need some rabbits? Catch some snakes first.

This may be the most mildly disturbing collection of miscellaneous links we’ve posted, but to make up for it, here’s a link to our Hot Links Archive.

Kermit Afro

Russian landslide is creepy [via].

Vote for Gil Fulbright [via]. He’s as honest as honest can get. Honest.

Vote for Josh. He’s even more honest than Gil.

Yep. Pretty sure that was the first animated .gif.

Conceptual Ambient Sound Art. I made it to 02:45.

This is kinda fun: The Daily Potato News.

Life Is Beautiful (1997) is a movie that everyone of all ages should see IMO.

His great achievement in life involves rolling a ball.
What do you think you are?! I am!” What a dork.

How to collect Birch Water and what to do with it.

What to do with pistachio shells?

Horses snoring and farting.

Top image is a character sketch from The Lost Thing. It would have given me nightmares when I was a little tad.

It’s raining here. [via].

1939 burglar alarm dials number and plays message.

Urban Planning Fail that won awards in 1984.

Here’s another one from 1978, called “the first postmodern ruin.” I visited the latter ten years after construction and it was a crumbling bio-hazard with human feces in the dry pools.

The Spelling Nazi Reports:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Lotsa sundials.

I got 12/12 on the Elvis Lyrics Test [via].

Cyberwars

A Brief Illustrated History of the Navy Goat.

You’ve probably uttered the phrase, “it begs the question,” and you’ve probably used it incorrectly. It doesn’t mean what you think it means.

Loyalty. Dog follows ambulance all the way to the hospital to look after his master.

Sarcastic State Mottos [via].

Exponential Dominos.

She’s cool and creepy at the same time.

I’d like one pancake, please.

Mel Blanc on Letterman.

How to Eef in 60 seconds (previously posted here).

Homemade gas powered horse [via]. Guy looks like Tom Waits to me.

Human produced CO2 is responsible for everything. Lol.

Interesting concept: an online collaborative to write stories with multiple authors in real time.

How to make a very cool simple electric train.

Fun facts to know and tell:

Bears’ closest living relatives are pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses).

Pinnipeds’ closest living relatives are bears and musteloids (skunks, weasels and raccoons).

The German word for “raccoon” is Waschbär, which translates literally to “Wash Bear.”

Here’s a naked bear. Here’s a naked raccoon.

Big Chief Buffalo Nickel.

Viral video by Russel Houghton – Urban Isolation. L.A. without traffic.

Why is The Parkside Inn Motel (Bundoora, Australia) ranked No.1? Because there’s no No. 2. Interesting reviews. [via]

This is possibly The Greatest DooWop song ever recorded, by The Channels.

Your Telephone Of Tomorrow: Fairly accurate prediction from September 1956, and source of the *ahem* top image.


P.S. We get notifications of new followers from time to time, and we like to see who you are, so we stop by your blogs out of curiosity. Our readers are an eclectic mix of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities. We’ve known this for years, courtesy of WordPress, RevolverMaps and other sources.

That said, here’s the website of a recent follower, both disturbing and fascinating at the same time. NSFK except as a warning to those who choose to tread a similar path.

Dog Beard

Photos of the homeland of the Brothers Grimm.

Got the Herps? No? Here’s a site that can help you out.

Oh, and this viral video of 7D dinosaurs in a mall in Dubai? It’s true, but the description is false.  It’s a video of a 3D animation overlay on a 2D screen filmed in a mall in Bahrain, not holograms. Still cool, though. (One of the more brilliant comments on the Utoobage: “I couldn’t believe this is even exist. Shouldn’t be 6d? Up down left right back and front? Where did the seventh dimension come from?”)

The Audacity of Dopes. This amused me.

THIS douchebag was pantsed by THIS class act.

A question requiring punctuation:
doest does dust dust or does dust dust does
A statement requiring punctuation:
that that is is that that is not is not but that that is is not is not that that is nor is that that is that that is not

Some people are just plain ignorant.

Death Metal Version of the Theme To Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, courtesy of Bunkessa’s boyfriend who’s a late night DJ on KUCI88.9, and yeah, I challenged him.

Robert Goddard Patent 1914

A happy dog in a pile of leaves [via].

Dog puzzle.

What a hurricane sounds like: Hurricane Ike 2008 [via].

“Hey, yinz. Stillers ain’t jagoffs. We gotcha tear-bull talls, yah.”  This long linguistic analysis of Pittsburghese is missing one thing: audio examples of the dialect [via].

It’s also come to my attention that the Pittsburgh “yinzer” accent was voted the most annoying dialect in the Nation, and I disagree. The New York accent that pronounces the word “all” as “ohl” is worse than the Southern California accent (made famous in Zappa’s “Valley Girl“) that inflects statements into questions?

Shipwrecks.

Amazing wood carving.

Sparkling bat poop [via].

Robert Goddard’s 1914 Patent for a liquid-fueled rocket. Consider that in 1914 we barely knew how to design airplanes. In those days, the fuel gauge was a pocket watch hung on a nail.
