  • The Great American Menu: Foods Of The States, Ranked And Mapped: The descriptions are hysterical, to wit: “Chimichanga (Arizona): Somebody dropped a burrito into a deep-fryer and out came Arizona’s signature food, which no one in Arizona eats, because half the people in Arizona are too old for solid foods, and the rest are on the run from white-supremacist paramilitary border militias.”
  • 3 Scottish guys (in full accent) stalked by a bunny on the road: “Three Scottish guys driving down the road, and a rabbit, for some reason, refuses to leave the road in front of them. Like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps running and running in front of their car. For five whole minutes. Every time they stop the care, the rabbit stops. Then they start, and it runs in front of the car again. The Scottish accent is worth the price of admission alone. I probably didn’t understand 80% of this video.”
  • Why Didn’t People Smile in Old Photographs?: “By the 17th century in Europe, it was a well-established fact that the only people who smiled broadly, in life and in art, were the poor, the lewd, the drunk, the innocent, and the entertainment.”
  • How Will You Fare in the Obamacare Exchanges?: Overwhelmingly, people will pay more. Surprise, surprise.
  • Pain You Can’t Even Imagine: “If you aren’t in the ag world, you most likely haven’t heard about the devastating loss that ranchers in western South Dakota are struggling with after being hit by winter storm Atlas.” I only heard about this from my mother… and it’s so much worse than I thought. AUGH.
  • Government Shut Down and All I Got Was this Blog Post by Ari Armstrong: “The only apparent value of the shutdown is that it highlighted just how pervasively government violates people’s rights. We were reminded that the federal government controls vast tracts of recreational land that it has no compunction in using for political purposes. We learned that government regulations are so onerous that, when the government supposedly shuts down, it violates rights more severely than when it is fully operational–as by failing to issue permits that the government requires for operation. And we learned that, contrary to recent claims by some members of Congress, the vast majority still have no interest in scaling back the rights violations inherent in ObamaCare, or reining in government spending, or anything of the sort.”
  • Dry bones: “Then countries have three-quarters of the world’s 30m slaves, according to the first Global Slavery Index…” The fact that real slavery still exists in the world today is one reason why I think that likening taxes or regulations to slavery is offensive hype.

  • IFTTT (If This Then That): This looks to be a pretty awesome tool!
  • EVA 23: exploring the frontier: Being blinded and drowning, while on a spacewalk is very, very scary.
  • 24 Photos You Need To Really Look At To Understand: Some of these are really hard to see for what they are.
  • MAPS: A Poll Asked America Which States Were The Drunkest, The Hottest And Which Had The Silliest Accents: I love that California wins first place in a number of categories, including “most overrated.” Heh.
  • Samsung ad featuring possibly the world’s worst actors: OMG, this ad is a wonder to behold. Perfectly made-up and perfectly speaking actors pretend to be ordinary computer users, with the worst script and acting ever. The best part is that the perfect woman is dumber than a box of rocks. Oh, and that shirt makes me think that she’s never so much as thought about sex. Truly, truly funny.
  • It’s Happened: “Chinese person with a random English word as a tattoo.” Hey, at least it’s not “butt-monkey” or something!
  • How High Can You Step?: “A simple test checks your leg muscle function.” This is pretty nifty, although it’s hard not to push off with your leg on the floor!
  • Blurred Lines: Jimmy Fallon, Robin Thicke, and The Roots sing “Blurred Lines” using classroom instruments. It’s a version worth watching… and the guy on the right is really rockin’ that banana!
  • Student Converts School Bus into Mobile Home and Drives Around Country: “For his final project, graduate architecture student Hank Butitta bought an old school bus on Craigslist for $3,000. 15 weeks and $6,000 of improvements later, Hank and his two friends were ready to embark on a 5,000 mile (8,046 km) journey across the United States. The 225 sq. ft mobile home features reclaimed gym flooring and dimmable LED lighting. Using the 28 inch wide windows as a modular guide (the aisle is also 28 in. wide), the bus is divided into four primary zones: bathroom, kitchen, seating, and sleeping. The space can be configured in a variety of combinations, depending on need.” Awesome!
  • Employment Application Of The Day: “I have caught you red-handed”! BWHAHAHA!
