Bible quotes for the kids

Posted by: Dave In: History|Weird

Nothing better than some good old ass-kicking from the best part of the Bible (the Old Testament).  You can read other scary bible quotes here.  Now go out there and kick ass for the Lord…especially if they’re Jebusites. Deuteronomy 20:10-17 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. […]

Martian rovers alive and kicking 4 years later

Posted by: Dave In: Science

From RedOrbit (as seen on Gizmodo) NASA’s twin Mars rovers, nearing the third anniversary of their landings, are getting smarter as they get older. The unexpected longevity of Spirit and Opportunity is giving the space agency a chance to field-test on Mars some new capabilities useful both to these missions and future rovers. Spirit will […]

This list is from the BBC’s website, so many of them are decidely British, however, many of them are quite universal too.  Here are the top 20 things we have discovered as a human race in the last year: 1. Pele has always hated his nickname, which he says sounds like “baby-talk in Portuguese”. 2. […]

Holiday Survival Guide for Slackers

Posted by: Dave In: Humor|Music|Weird

This is from the minty fresh mind of Matthew Baldwin. He whips out the funny for all to see. Back when I was an atheist, Christmas was a confusing season indeed. The holiday, as I saw it, revolved entirely around two completely fictitious characters—one in a red suit, the other in swaddling clothes—but believing in […]

Houston during the holidays

Posted by: Dave In: Current Affairs|Misc

Picture, if you will, crazed and glassy-eyed throngs of holiday zombies driving gigantic SUVs and lumbering for a single narrow parking space between a Jaguar and a BMW 7 series. Somehow, le-mum-du-football is backing up her Chevy Suburban like she has a CDL and is used to handling the big rigs. Her kids are sedated […]

Will it blend?

Posted by: Dave In: Film|Gadgets|Weird

Best.  Blender.  Ever. Will it blend? Check out the “do not try at home” videos of this blender in action.  The bottle of beer and handful of marbles videos are quite impressive.  They’re selling these babies for $400 a piece.  I honestly think it might be worth it. -Dave

  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
