lolpresident: this was inevitable. {via}

“This is What We’ve Become – Woman Pushes Baby on Segway”: wow, that’s some serious laziness. On the other hand, if I paid almost five thousand dollars for a scooter, I’d certainly be using it for everything including going to the refrigerator to grab a soda.

“It’s Time for Violence”: parody of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” about a database project gone awry.

The 100 Fastest Cars: number 31, oh yeah! Two observations: the numbering is not important and what the hell is this thing doing in there? {via}

Hike Database: Wiki for hikers around the world. Just getting started, so it’s a little dodgy.

Star Wars Origami: no force required.

The Onion – “Test-Driving the New Smartphones”: none of them meet the unique reviewer’s requirements.

lolgeeks: funnily-captioned pictures of a less-feline nature.

5/11/2007 yes, there’s a MINI available!

MINI Cooper Adorned with a Million Swarovski Crystals: it’s fab-u-lous!

Leave It To Beaver – 1958: the actual text of a letter that Ward read.
