Bear. Stop it. Stop it, Bear. Why are you breaking my kayak? Bear doesn’t speak English. Someone needs to add an instrumental background soundtrack with a heavy walking bass line to this.

This is so wrong. Chuck Berry sings Death Metal.

Regis Philbin and Cathy Lee interview The Ramones [1988].

The Failure Players.

Charles Schulz disliked the name “Peanuts”.

Interesting graph.

Nice catch… using Barbie Gear.

Colorful Lady

The Ohio State University Marching Band (aka, The Best Damn Band In The Land) has a raccoon named Bon Qui Qui for a mascot. Thanks to all the Buckeye fans who inadvertently gave us a traffic spike of almost 5x normal yesterday. [Related posts here.]

Monumental Land Art in the U.S. Sorry, but I don’t consider a trench in the desert “Art,” but some of these are kinda cool.

There’s a Robert Redford movie coming out soon about Dan Rather, CBS and the Killian Documents Forgery Scandal. Here’s a breakdown of how the fraud began to unravel and who actually uncovered it.

A selfie from Mars.

She’s inane. She’s vapid. She’s @SocalityBarbie.


Someone doesn’t know what a knife is for.

Buster Keaton rocks [via].

Attach a corn cob to a long fishing pole, swing it at a rubber chocolate donut and try to avoid hitting a bunch of protesters with placards on sticks in a field. That’s Hornussen, aka Swiss Golf.

How about a Little Turtle Face?

The Argument Of The Beard goes like this:

“…For if once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once [one] begin[s] upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.”
–Thomas DeQuincey

Yet another way to win at Rock Paper Scissors.

It’s 11:22 according to the ferrofluid clock.

Children’s songs, 1970s Belfast

Medieval illustrations of cats licking their butts [via].

Propaganda vs. reality.

Okay, this is brilliant.


Great Barrington – Business is Greater than Great! 

It appears that someone/some people have created a YouTube channel about the town of Great Barrington, MA that has a video for EVERY business in the town.

The song is the same in all of the videos and each video is just filled with some exteriors of the business.

I am obsessed.

this is real, people. and it’s realer than real.

It’s true. Business in Great Barrington is greater than great, and here’s proof:

Watch the entire play list. I know where I want to go on my next vacation, and I’ll check each establishment off my bucket list one at a time. Wait for the Great Barrington Cemetery
It’s greater than great.

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.
