Bigass Shiny WTF

Wednesday, 9 January 2019

Caption (from source) :៧. សួតសេះដែលសប់ខ្យល់ពេញ
Google Translate detected Khmer: 7. suot seh del sabkhyal penh

In English: “7. The pneumonia is full of rain.”

Based on the translation, I’m guessing that those are a pair of whale lungs that are full of water… but I’m wrong. According to the Daily Mail, they’re a pair of fully inflated horse lungs.

Next question: Are they wet and shiny, or are they dry and marked with chalk?

Dance hard.

Dirty Things.

Please explain this.

Jumping off a mountain.

Darwin Beer Can Regatta.

Pat Sajak got a phone call.

Super Blood Wolf Moon is gonna happen.

Mike Wallace(?) interviewed an autistic man in 1961 (possibly on Wallace’ late night show “PM East“) and badgered the hell out of him for no good reason.

Not sure if you’re left-handed, right-handed or a mix of both? Take this survey. (I’m in the 2d left decile whatever that means.)

We’ll find out what Ultima Thule looks like in about 2 years. (That’s how long the signal will take to reach Earth.)

Saturday Matinee – Doodling In Math Class, Forklift Finesse, Vegetable Music, Funk Mashup & Lillian Reyes

Saturday, 5 January 2019

That’s amazing. A cardioid is an anti-parabola. I never thought of it that way.
I used to do similar doodles, but nothing like hers. Draw a square, divide each line with dots, draw curvy lines top to bottom and right to left, then connect the diagonals and the result is a 2 dimensional wavy cloth. Or you can do dog-chase doodles to do spirals, but those need graphics to explain.

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with a Zippo [via].

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with meat [via].

Amazing. Now I gotta get up offa that thang.

Amazing R&B vocals featuring Lillian Reyes. I love this stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more really important stuff.

Bonus – Old guys singing in a men’s room with great acoustics.

Freddy Heineken’s Contribution To The World: Beer Bottle Masonry

Thursday, 3 January 2019

 

…The idea of turning waste into useful products came to life brilliantly in 1963 with the Heineken WOBO (world bottle). Envisioned by beer brewer Alfred Heineken and designed by Dutch architect John Habraken, the “brick that holds beer” was ahead of its ecodesign time, letting beer lovers and builders alike drink and design all in one sitting.

This is masonry. Each course is restrained by the male/female neck/punt connection, but the glass frogs (the bumps on the tops and bottom sides of the bottle) don’t provide a lot of friction, so some method of vertical reinforcement is required. Can’t tell how they anchored it to the foundation, or how they attached the roof framing.

I suppose it works in regions with few earthquakes, no serious windloads, and for people who really like green beer bottle natural lighting.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ME BLOOGIES!

Tuesday, 1 January 2019

Amazing. Just one year ago this exact same thing happened.

However, if you exceeded your level of tolerance last night and you cringe at having to prepare something to eat for the Bowl Bowl Games, you’ve come to the right place.

Bunk’s Chili is 1 hour prep, 1 hour leaving it alone, one hour nap, and you’re good to go.

Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve 2019

Monday, 31 December 2018

May you have peace, liberty, prosperity, and allow yourselves to consume and enjoy massive quantities of stuff that causes tumors in rats.

Rock on.

Ringing In The New Hotlinks

Raccoon bubble bath.

This kinda creeped me out.

If truth bothers you, don’t watch this.

Mouse trap design from pre-1590AD works.

Rediscovered this cool video of a Murmeration.

Nice collection of sailing songs links and inks.

To alpacas, hedgehogs seem like mysterious beings full of mystery and wonder.

Parking para perros [via]. It’s a clever idea for people who ride their dogs around town, but who knows if the dogs like it.

Breaking news / bombshell / tipping point / the walls are closing in / the beginning of the end. They’re called Talking Heads for a reason.

This attractive young woman took a DNA test and found that she has mostly European ancestry, and she’s upset about it. Perhaps it’s a hoax advert?


Recent E-Mail convo went kinda like this:

“Give me a precise number.”
“I can’t do that for liability reasons.”
“All I want is a general range.”
Here you go.”
“Ha ha. No, I mean a ballpark figure.”
Here you go.”
“I meant average.”

Here you go.”
“Bite me.”


Bunkessa signed up her uncle for “Dip Of The Month Club” as a Christmas present.
I guess that means that on the first of every month some new goober is going to show up at his door. “Hiya! Here I am! Where’s your refrigerator? Can I use your phone? I need to borrow your car for a few days. Can we watch ‘The Brady Bunch?’ Oops! I hope that don’t stain your carpet.” etc.

On the other hand, maybe it has to do with Skoal…


BTW – According to this informal poll, “The Little Drummer Boy” is tied with “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” for the No.1 Christmas song you could live without.

The .Gif Friday Post No. 565 – PeePal Pup

Friday, 28 December 2018

Man says to the dog, “I once had a dog so stupid he lifted both legs to pee.”
Dog says to the man, “Hold my beer.”

[Original .Gif found here. Yeah, I usually post three, but that one stands on its own.]
