It’s a Rubix!

Remember the Rubix cube? Well, recently I saw this. Wow, huh? But then I saw this. Pretty neat, huh? So you see, soon that can be you and all this won’t be so amazing anymore. Now tell me what you think.

Lego my leg

Prepare yourself for an adventure like you have never before experienced. In an unprecedented event… LIVE via webcam access… you can watch me amputate my legs with a homemade guillotine on October 31st! (Someone give me money to watch this, because I won’t pay for it myself. – Ed)

In related news, legs seem to be in high demand. Those are some nice legs, I have to say… Now tell me what you think.

Burn baby burn!

What kid didn’t fry ants with a magnifying glass when he was little? Well letís step it up a notch to a simulation of a city. Is it wrong that I find that incredibly fun? Heh, I now seem to have a renewed interest in buying a giant fresnel lens and burning things. Now tell me what you think.

Mushrooming Population of India

So how do you stop an entire nation from doing the nasty? Simple – subsidize the cost of televisions and create a nation of couch potatoes! That’s exactly what India, who just recently crossed the one billion population mark last May, wants to do. Read more about it here. Hmm, now that I think about it, you know what would be even more effective? Give them a TiVo, and a computer with cheap broadband. ;-) They’ll be down to negative population growth in no time flat! Now tell me what you think.

Sick

I would say that my tolerance for gruesome or violent footage is fairly low. I have no desire to desensitize myself enough to be able to watch much of the stuff that is out there. I’ve managed to stomach the occasional guy getting run over or shot or stabbed or puked on, but it’s not without my stomach feeling uneasy for a while and the blood leaving my legs. Now, there’s a bit of controversy over a video clip from Korea showing two kittens being killed, prepared and cooked. The outrage is growing. I’ll add my opinions later when I decide what they are. You can find a link to the site and then the video from that article if you’re interested. I don’t feel like linking directly to the site. I barely like going to the site.. too much porn and stuff everywhere. I haven’t had the courage yet to watch the kitty video. I’ll let ya know if I do. Or let me know if you do. Now tell me what you think.

Horatio

There was a skit in last week’s SNL that just about killed me. I just think Horatio Sanz is great. He cracks me up like no other. Anyway, I saved the clip. You can get it here. It’s about 6 minutes long and 30 MB. It actually looks better if you view it at 200% in my opinion. And for all you Mac users (all 1 of you?), the video is in Windows Media Video format. But have no fear, you can now play those files. Go here and click on the “Free Windows Media Player” button to get it. Now tell me what you think.

Massage

I had my first massage class tonight. I’m taking a 16 week course to become a massage therapist. When the class is over, I’m eligible to take the national certification exam. I don’t want to do it for a living, well at least I have no desire to at this point, but it’s something that I would like to know. I’ve always enjoyed giving and receiving back and body rubs, so I thought I’d learn more. I really like the focus of these instructors. They try to make it about feeling the energy and harnessing and transferring that energy to the client. They actually made a point about not giving the client too much of your energy as you may weaken yourself. It was neat. I have homework due next class though. Although I am looking forward to it, because we’re trading massages every class for the next six weeks (2 classes per week). I was nervous when class started, but it turned out to be really nice. Much more fun/enjoyable than I imagined. But, it’s now time for me to go to the holiest of man’s places. I’ve been waiting all day for this moment, putting it off time and time again. So, I will grab some reading material and set myself down on a hopefully-not-too-cold seat. Wish me luck. Now tell me what you think.

IE6

IE6 is out, download it now! Now tell me what you think.

Want Drugs? Play Games!

If you want games AND drugs, then you should make your way to Thailand. See, in America, you can go to shops or events and play multiplayer PC games with a bunch of other people, which is fun and everything. But, if you want drugs, then you have to bring your own! WTF?! What’s with that? Well, have no fear. Shops in Thailand give you drugs free of charge when you come in to play games! Yup, they just mix some amphetamines in with the drinking water, give it to you and voila! You’re feeling good. The best part is, they don’t even tell you you’re getting drugged up. The surprise is half the fun. When you collapse and realize that 72 hours of hardcore gaming have passed without sleep or food, you can have a hardy chuckle with the shopowners and fellow gamers about the drugs that were snuck into your body. Or you can just die like this guy. Either way, it’s a blast! Look out Thailand, here I come! (and a mighty thanks to Fox for the scoop on this story). Now tell me what you think.

Oil

Here‘s a very nice site talking about all the characteristics of engine oil and changing the oil and maintaining the oil. It’s almost enjoyable to just read. I didn’t get to the rest of the site, but there seems to be much more. Although, does anyone reading this even care? Now tell me what you think.
