The Lost Thing

Peyton rocks out. Kid’s got the moves.

We’ve posted these before, and they’re entirely awesome .gifs, just like these.

Treeslap [via].

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

What to do with pistachio shells?

What to do with a red-hot ball of nickel and a jawbreaker?

Balls roll uphill on this paper bridge. Pause the vid at 0:20 seconds and scratch your fuzzy head a bit before resuming play. Paper template here.

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].

41 April Fools Day pranks for kids.

Famous structures under construction.

Teena Marie serenades Smokey Robinson. Turn your monitor off and just listen. You’ve been warned.

Green means “go” because of trainwrecks.

The Tee-Tones.

Sounds like Magic Dick learned from James Cotton who learned from Walter Horton.

Photoshop Your Dreams.

BuckyBalls in a blender.

Type the word “poop” and see it how it translates around the world.

All 4 episodes of Charlie the Unicorn in one. Charleeee, click on it, Charleeeeee… Go on, click it.”

A Unicorn in a Unitard on a Unicycle. The Internet is closing in 5 minutes.

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 speak like Porky Pig in 32 seconds.

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

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

International CyberWar attacks in real time – and it’s not a time lapse. The majority of attacks originate from China, and the majority of the targets are in the US. [Source of screencapped image at top.]

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.

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.

Sorry to have to state the obvious, but the people who marched for “Climate Change” are idiots.

Interesting timelapse of Arizona weather [via].

Planets inside water droplets.

A Tribute to Pugsley Addams.

Very cool audio/visual display of pendulum motion [via]. Visual demo of sound waves, mathematical sine wave congruences, electronics, physics, gravity, art and bowling all in one. Surprising stuff happens about 1:00 in. There’s medical info in the video as well – one of the kids has whooping cough. I haven’t heard that sound since I was in 3rd grade. [A screencap of the video is the source of the top image.]

Cigar box juggling in Japan.

Cigar box juggling in America.

This story still fascinates me. Michael Larson discovered a flaw in a TV game show and exploited it without cheating. Walked away with a quarter million in today’s dollars, then blew it. Documentary here.

About Colonial Indoor Lighting [via].

Mortimer The Skeleton.

What not to do if you’re a Travis County Texas District Attorney named Rosemary Lehmberg pulled over for DWI with a blood alcohol level of .23.

And if you’re a Travis County Texas District Attorney convicted of DWI named Rosemary Lemberg, don’t don’t attempt to indict the Governor in retaliation for a legal veto of funding for your department due to inherent and egregious corruption.

Related: Kinky Friedman endorses Texas Governor Rick Perry. Friedman’s a hoot.

Here’s Houston Harris (better known as Bobo Brazil) vs. Rikidōdzan in 1957, complete match.
(Kim Sin-rak, aka Rikidōzan, here.)

In 1654, Otto von Guericke invented a machine that really sucked. In 1888, John Dunlop invented a machine that really blew.

Disneyland? Nah. THIS is the Happiest Place On Earth.
