We Surf So You Don't Have To


Wikipedia – “Bill Brown”: crud, that’s pretty crowded already. The only way I’m going to make it on there at this rate is as a serial killer and I’ve got that whole moral restriction against the initiation of force problem to overcome for that.

Bottomless Commie Jokes: I love Soviet humor. My old Soviet history professor had an entire lecture devoted to it.

back scratching: luckily, my wife and I are pretty in sync in leading each other around the back. After reading this entry, my first thoughts ran to a similar scene in So I Married an Axe Murderer.

The Adventures of LOLBat: hilarious! {via}


Terminal Sings Songs: wow. It’s no MP3, but it’ll do nicely. {via}


Where the Hell is Matt?: so this thing’s been going on since 2006 and this is the first I’ve heard of it? Gosh, this Internet thing is pretty big. Definitely check out the higher-quality version. {via}

Voicemail from Dimitri: “audio scrotitude.” I’d bet money that she didn’t call him back. {via}

10 Very Rare Clouds: surprisingly beautiful. I had no idea they went beyond “wispy” and “fluffy.”

“New Flavors for Addresses on the Web Are on the Way”: so some lucky person’s going to finally be able to register clownpenis.fart.

[UPDATE: Thinking about it a little more, this raises typosquatting to new heights. The real lucky person is the one who gets the registry privilege for the “cmo” TLD. He or she can churn out DNS records for google.cmo, yahoo.cmo, etc. and just place ads galore.]

George Carlin – “Religion is bullshit”: the late comedian skewers religion quite effectively. Umm, NSFW.


Firefox Add-on: STOP! Hammertime!: OMG, this is just what that button needed. I’m hoping that it’ll be baked into the browser by 3.5. {via}

ExpressionEngine v2.0 Sneak Preview: mmmmm, CMS-y.

Pampers Change ‘N’ Go: disgusting idea for diapers. You just slip a liner in and out, so you don’t have to change the diaper itself. You know, the one that’s soaked in piss for up to 12 hours. Plus, you don’t have to do all that interaction that goes on when changing the diaper fully.


Wondermark Comic – “In Which Africa is Noticed”: nice—if only they were that candid.

Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California: Lost would have been very different using these directions. (And what’s with the Washington detour?)


Lady Spins on an Escalator: that’s very good to know. {via}

International Association of Time Travelers – Members’ Forum: I saw this months ago but I didn’t really read it. Today I finally read it and laughed out loud.

Something Store: $10 gets you something. I’m trying to think of the market for this site: indecisive people with money but not enough stuff?

Two Free Tacos Day: this will make my $50 gas purchase yesterday really only $49! Thanks Jack!


R2D2 and C3P0 in Indiana Jones Movie: that’s seriously cool!

LEGO Digital Designer: horrid interface (hiya Java) but awesome idea. {via}

Amorphia Apparel: my initial reaction was lackluster, but there’s some real good ones at second glance.

Rational Triggers for the Emotoself: excellent query and excellent replies. My wife recently made a wall hanging that reads “Do one thing every day that makes you happy.”


Lego Death Star: sure it’s $400 but can you put a price on that kind of awesome? Oh, $400. Yeah, that’s probably too much.

Dance Off with the Star Wars Stars 2008: wait for the third entrant, it’s worth it. Also, get a life, people. {via}


4,000: two posts ago was the 4,000th entry for this blog. It seems like only yesterday I was publishing my 3,000th. This batch of 1,000 took 1 year and 8 months, up about 6 months. 5,000 posts, here I come!

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – The Abridged Script: that would have been a shorter and more honest movie had they made it. {via}

Feedbooks: if’n I ever get one of them Kindle thingies, this’d be a might useful site.


Honda FCX Clarity: I love innovation in autos and I think fuel cells are an idea whose time has come.


Google Street View Car Getting a Ticket: I wonder what for.


MIDAS: MIT, eh? It and EPB strike me as, um, how to put this delicately, primarily oriented towards sausage parties. {via}

Red Mahogany Luxury Paneled Cubicle with Dark Cherry Hardwood Floors: whoa. {via}

RAS Syndrome: the people who get bugged by RAS bug me; they’re also the people who are quick to point out that dictionaries are descriptive not prescriptive, so you’d think they were familiar with the changing face of language. Also nice in the entry: coinage of PCS AKA “jumping the gun” or “RTFA.”

How To Teach a Healthy Dose of Skepticism?: I can agree with some of the commenters about reading pseudo-science debunkings. They certainly had a big influence in my childhood.

SUV Taken Out by F-16 in Utah: holy moly.

Gummi Lighthouses – When Candy Design Goes Terribly, Hilariously Wrong: wow, I can’t believe no one in the design and development phase noticed its resemblance.

Field Guide to Firefox 3: I’ve been using the release candidates and 3 is pretty different from previous versions. And it is officially released on June 17th so get yourself prepared for the upcoming changes now.


“Cup of Brown Joy”: the only rap about tea I’ve ever heard. Also, the only rap music video featuring tea that I’ve ever seen. Also, the only music of any kind where I’ve ever heard the words “oolong” or “assam.” {via}

Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot: I just had serious flashbacks to Ghost Squad. {via}


Creative cubicles: I like to live vicariously through other cube dwellers’ creativity. {via}


Holy crap, we forgot to announce the new MacBooks!: Fake Steve Jobs has been on quite a hilarious tear lately.


Global Whining vs. The Truth: good little introductory article into the other hand of the global warming debate. OMG, did I just call it a debate? Debate implies that the matter is not 100% settled and it most assuredly is beyond the pale of doubt or questioning. How dare I question the vast, universal, assumed consensus among all scientists, politicians, and non-Flat Earth types!

Quit Coddling Your Kids: great advice for raising more responsible children. Anything less is a disservice to them.

“The Gas Prices We Deserve”: money quote: “Also disqualified from complaining are all voters who sent to Washington senators and representatives who have voted to keep ANWR’s oil in the ground and who voted to put 85 percent of America’s offshore territory off-limits to drilling.” Hear, hear! The ignorance surrounding gas prices is astounding. {via}


Car and Driver Live: drive six exotic sports cars at either the track or on the open road for a couple thousand. I’d do this if I had the money, which I don’t.


Worldwide Fred: awesomely-designed, whimsical products like the BatterFinger or the Shower Mic among many, many others.


The Onion – “Liberty City Police Face Allegations Of Incompetence, Brutality”: “… more than 830,000 civilians have been murdered ….” That and SNL‘s recent sketch really make me want the game.


Guide to New York Jargon: I love neologisms and this article’s chock-a-block with them.
