Chinese Year of The Hot Links

Exhaust system enhancement [found here via here].

If you give bees cocaine, they dance more vigorously and tend to overestimate how much pollen they’ve foraged according to this article. Why anyone needs to know how cocaine affects bee behavior (or why anyone would pay for such a study) is a puzzle.

This is my new favorite song. Oh wait. It’s this one. Oh wait…

I think she likes me.

The missus and I just watched “Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon.” Excellent documentary from 2015. Here’s the trailer. So many flashbacks and clips took me back to my college childhood when nobody could afford a subscription, yet everyone had the latest issue.

Triboluminescence is an optical phenomenon in which light is generated through the breaking of chemical bonds in a material when it is pulled apart, ripped, scratched, crushed, or rubbed.

Man shoots Wintergreen Lifesavers with a pellet gun, creates triboluminescence, records it at 28,000 frames per second [via].

Static electricity fun: Trooch and I did this in college. When the winter humidity is down and even touching a door knob gives you a zap, get a fluorescent tube, turn off the lights. With a buddy holding the other end of the tube, start shuffling feet on the carpet. The tube will flash intermittently, and the stoners will go, “Whoa…. dude…”

TRUE. In 1504, Christopher Columbus thwarted a mutiny and saved himself and the lives of his crew by perpetrating a hoax [via].

This coconut crab commentary amused me.

How to annoy and frustrate students in 10 minutes. Imagine having to sit through an hour of that every day.

2018 is the Chinese Year of the Dog, also the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog and is also the Chinese Year of the Yang Earth Dog. Woof.

The .Gif Friday Post No.523 – LAX ETA 5hrs 7min, Russian Airforce BS Taunts & Cat Opines

That’s a Russian intercept fighter that flew within 5 feet of a US surveillance plane, crossed in front, and forced the US aircraft to fly through turbulence on 29 January 2018. The Cold War is not over.

Kim Jong Un’s Sister Isn’t Hot Links

Sunday, 11 February 2018

From the “I Can’t Wait To Cite This” Department: Section A404 of the 2016 CEBC is titled “PRESCRIPTIVE MEASURES FOR WEAK STORY.”

The history of the Lally Column.

You ain’t usin’ dis car tonight.

This has something to do with college football. No idea what, but it does.

Very cool macro photography of bug faces.

Graphic comparison of some of the world’s notable bridges.

Extreme G-Forces can knock you out cold.

Family members say Mouzon was going into the National Guard in August [2016] and Campbell had joined the Navy. “These kids are not awful terrible kids.” Yeah, Right.

The Nudifier is the perfect ap if you want to pretend to be flashing the crowds during Mardi Gras.

“The shadow dissolved into vapors. The stench increased.” Ten creepiest two-sentence stories are creepy.

A placebo thermostat does nothing, but the person who adjusts it hears the noise of hissing or a fan running and consequently feels more content.

Kim Jong Un’s sister looks a lot like Kim Jong Un. Oh wait. That’s the brother who was assassinated.

According to CNN: “While military service for women has long been voluntary, it was reportedly made mandatory recently in a bid to bolster the armed forces.” Inside North Korea is not a CNN porno movie as far as you know, and yeah, she’s got a skin infection.

The .Gif Friday Post No.522 – Dog Goes Galt, Belligerant Bullfrog & A Gorilla Grenade

Fascinating, yet disturbing.

A sheep died in a bog. The top of the sheep’s back was not submerged and rotted away. The submerged parts remained perfectly preserved.

Bogs are weird.

Superbowl XXXXXII Hot Links

Sunday, 4 February 2018

Yeah, I know it’s LII in Roman numerals, but the more Xes in a heading, along with the word “hot,” the more blog traffic. It’s kinda like deliberately posting an innocent descriptive just to see what happens. For example, “Lesbian Amputee Dwarf Porn” is holding steady as our 17th most popular post ever. Go figure. 😀

Things like this make me smile.

It’s all goats and mirrors.

How to make a hand axe to make a celtic axe to build a thatched hut.

Here’s what happens when you have a 70% off Nutella sale in France.

There’s a name for that nocturnal dance. It’s called the Hypnic Jerk.

Young orangutan cracks up at magic trick [via].

This idiot should be arrested for vandalism.

Emerson Quillin.

Get ready to puke. I just discovered that there is a puppy font.

What is the oldest surviving Hollywood film logo? Take a guess before you click. Here’s a big hint.

Saturday Matinee – Going Fishing, Rock & Bluegrass, The Flying Burrito Brothers & 1929 Elders

Saturday, 3 February 2018

This is kinda cool [found here].

1971 – When Rock & Roll Met Bluegrass. It’s part of an Earl Scruggs tribute video. Click on the link to the Utoobage to see the awesome lineuup of players. “Easy Chair” is sappy as hell, and it’s one of my all-time favorite songs.

1969’s Altamont Speedway Concert was to be California’s answer to 1967’s Woodstock, but turned to disaster once the concert promoters thought it was a good idea to hire the Hell’s Angels as security. (It was as stupid as if the promoters of Burning Man had hired M-13 and the Zetas to keep the peace out in the middle of the desert).

Now THAT is important. 90 year old voices from 90 years ago. Just think of what they witnessed in their lifetimes, and think of what your grandchildren will witness in theirs.

Have a great weekend, folks, and it’s not too late to plan for a crockpot full of Bunk’s Chili for your Sunday StuporBlow Party.
