2014 Russia Olympics

How to make a wooden Viking beer mug with a hatchet and a knife. I’d use the rawhide method.

Better yet – how to scout and set up a whiskey still in the hills of Appalachia. The late Popcorn Sutton is his own live narrator on this 96 minute video, entitled, “This Is The Last Damn Likker Run I’ll Ever Make.” Take the time to watch it.

Interesting comparative photo essay of differing people of the U.S.

Large Brass Industrial Man Template is a great title for that post.

The True Story of The Simpsons.

Ohio State School For The Blind Marching Band accompanied the OSU  Marching Band for “script Ohio” September 2013.

Amy Oops has free tickets for something. Go for it.

Girls and whale sharks.

Image above from Walt Kelly‘s “Kluck Klams,” an evisceration of the KKK. The Pogo Poop Book was a collection of things that Kelly wanted to say in his daily comic strips but couldn’t, due to left-wing censorship.

Dancer and Prancer and a few Vixens here.

Recycling Scrabble Tiles.

“If we aren’t allowed to test shampoo on monkeys, how will we ever know if our monkeys are clean?” – Diesel Kroese. Diesel helped me start this blog a long time ago, so now he spams me with his book adverts. Payback’s a bitch.

Best versions of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star you’ll ever hear.

This Tornado Tracks graphic blows me away [via].

The precurser to “Hot Rod Lincoln” was Arkie Shibley’s 1951 recording of “Hot Rod Race.

Speaking of “Hot Rod Lincoln, THIS is the perhaps the best version I’ve heard.

Canada’s House of Common addresses a potential threat to civilization [via].

This song was a hit on pop radio in the early 1960s, and it’s enough to make you wanna puke. [Wiki: The song was composed by Ghanaian musician Guy Warren in 1956 under the original title "An African's Prayer (Eyi Wala Dong)".]

The New Dimensions in Testimony program is pretty awesome. More here.

“‘I now have work for 20 years,’ he exclaimed joyfully.” Disturbing true story here.

Michael Jackson’s 1993 Patent is cool, but he likely got the idea from this guy.

Hominid will creep you out. [via]

Sea star suppertime.

Tattoo Spellcheck.

Nothing but Plague Doctors. Prior to medical/scientific knowledge about the causes of The Black Death, Plague Doctors risked their lives attempting to treat the infected while trying to protect themselves from the  “miasma.” The very sight of a Plague Doctor terrified people as he was a harbinger of death, and due to his specialty, a Plague Doctor was often forced to be a recluse himself.

I missed the debut of the The Butter Dance, but inadvertently featured it here. Don’t try this at home, or anywhere for that matter. After all *ahem* Melati Suryodarmo is a professional. [h/t kdub]

Retro Pron – 1890s.  Drool away me laddies. Drool away.
