We Surf So You Don't Have To


I’ve been meaning to understand evolution better and I think I’ve found a site that’ll help to that end.


Why hasn’t anyone come up with the antipode of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You Might Be a Redneck…” jokes? Someone has, though it’s appallingly entitled “You Might Be a Blueneck…”.


The truth behind the Pledge of Allegiance.

Four-eared kitten: the latest mutant to grace this blog.

[UPDATE (11/29/2007): MSNBC took down the article, so here’s an alternate site about Lilly.]


Who Is That With Jeremy? Answer: just about every freaking celebrity I know (hmm, no Paris Hilton?!) The kid gets around.


If this is true, then I’m going to live a long time.


Puke or Soup?: take the quiz.

Need a kilt fix? Check out Men in Kilts.

Get a free email address from and no one will successfully bother you with email.


TruthEvidence: evidence for God’s existence etc. “written for read easy.” This sounds like someone I know.

Goatism: the philosophy that everything is a goat. Talk about some specific monism!


Lacuna, Inc.: removing bad or painful memories surgically. It’s actually a fake website for the movie Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind and it, amazingly, doesn’t mention the movie once. The only giveaway is the “Meet Joel Barish” feature on the front page with a picture of Jim Carrey and a link to

3/22/2004 (note that I’m not linking to it because it is vile and you can copy and paste it into your browser if you’re that interested) has found its way into Unreal Tournament 2004 in a much less foul manner. Awesome Easter egg!

Batman Begins: I can’t wait.

Headvertise: you pay to wear advertisements on your clothing, why not get paid to wear advertisements on your forehead?

Black Ships and Samurai: an online exhibit of the meeting between Commodore Perry and the Japanese in 1853.


The ghost of Vladimir Lenin made an appearance in a shower curtain and we didn’t even see it covered in the news. First they cover up the color of the sky on Mars and now this. The bastards!

[UPDATE: More on the latter.]


What kind of person buys and wears these really weird-ass charms? It’s rhetorical, by the way.

[UPDATE: Sandi sent me another one of a potato and wondered, “How do you even explain what this is on your charm bracelet?” Excellent point. It’s your secret potato buddy.

Oh and she also pointed out that the spud charm is out of stock, possibly indicating that there are people walking this Earth right now wearing what appears to be a piece of poop on a bracelet. Worry. Worry hard.]

Drat! The Darwin Awards lost a potential nominee today. [From a great show and blog, Best Week Ever]

World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum: the most amazing thing is that they fit all of that on the van.

The Statistics of Chutes and Ladders: complete with C source code for the computer simulation.


Neat-0 optical illusion: could this explain why people can’t see flashing banner ads on content pages!? I wonder if this could scale up for any other applications; there’s plenty of situations in everyday life where motion is as frenetic, though I suppose focus is much less intense.


I wonder if the parishoners titter constantly.


Computer pranks: enjoy!

Egads! What a monstrosity.

Ian’s Shoelace Site: home of the Ian Knot, allegedly the world’s fastest shoelace knot and now celebrating its 21st anniversary. Paraphrasing Churchill, never has so much been written about so little. I feel confident saying that it is the premier resource for all things shoelace-related.


Like the look of tattooed arms but hate the thought of all that pain? Me neither, but I could probably scare the pants of anyone I know by buying one of these shirts.

The latest from the singing kittens: I’m Glad That I’m Not Soluble.


If there was an award for the most graphic natural mutation (the Darwin Awards?), this little fella would easily win—six hands down!

Live from Mars, the rovers have their own journals!

The VW Bug Vest: a coat of many colors?


To each their own, I suppose.


So you wanna be like Shatner, eh?

Ewok song lyrics: now I can sing along.

Funny porn-ish links: accidental video game porn and safe for work porn.


Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I got my submissions accepted over at!
