Happy Columbo Day!

Monday, 10 October 2016


The feat was both amazing and dangerous, especially given the limited technology of the time. The world was much larger than anyone had previously imagined, and relatively little had been recorded by seagoing cartographers. Much of what they compiled was inaccurate, but they were not completely in the dark.

They had the Martellus Map of 1489 [pictured above].

Cristoforo Colombo changed all that, and for that he should be remembered. He had big cojones, as did every sailor who joined him on his voyages into the unknown. I doubt that his financial supporters (including Queen Isabella of Spain) expected him to ever return from the first exploration, but he did, and he made several round-trip voyages after that, relying on seasonal trade winds.

Here’s to one of the greatest explorers in history.

Crack open some beer and hoist one to everyone who works for a living.

Manikins, Watermelons & Fireworks: A Deadly Mix

Sunday, 3 July 2016

Proof that manikins have no business setting off fireworks. Jump to 01:00 for the splodeys.

Don’t shoot bottle rockets at each other’s eyes or hold exploding M-80s, kids, and definitely don’t lean over a firework that’s going to shoot into the air and explode [via].

They could at least have made it more realistic and scattered some empty beer cans around. Here’s one with an appropriate soundtrack from 2010:

The manikins recovered from their injuries (several times) but they never learn from their mistakes. This one’s from 2009:

Meanwhile, this guy’s got some manikin blood in him.

Yeah, the explosion turned the lights on and changed his shirt, but so what. It’s still a classic.

Be sane tomorrow, and if you can’t manage that, at least be safe.
