Robot With a Gun

Sure, it was funny in the 50's., but just wait until the inevitable robot uprising occurs. Then you won't be laughing. From a gallery on io9.

The Daily Hijinks of a Call Center Staffed by Ex-cons and Addicts

DeadByCubicle (DeadByCubicle) on Twitter

The morning break has turned into an all-out freestyle rap battle in the parking lot. The real estate school next door lives in fear.

Re-hired this week: the middle-aged former car salesman who lists his previous residence as "an abandoned house."

Where were the Tea Parties then?

1 Spog Blot: Where were the Tea Parties then?

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other Americans...oh hell no.

Koch Industries: We Don't Fund Tea Parties (Except For The Tea Parties We Fund) | TPMMuckraker




Koch Industries would also like to announce they don't fund the KKK, or the American Nazi Party, or Hutari. And they vehemently state that they had absolutely nothing to do with the World Trade Center bombing. Nor is Osama Bin Laden hiding out in a beach house they own in Miami.

The Nietzsche Family Circus

The Nietzsche Family Circus generates a random Nietzsche quote and a random Family Circus comic.



At times one remains faithful to a cause only
because its opponents do not cease to be insipid.

YouTube - corvette burnout gone bad

I've discovered a whole genre of videos I take sick pleasure in laughing at. People who try to burn rubber and end up destroying their engine.








This one is my favorite. He throws a rod so hard it punches through the hood.

The Love Rug

 I don't think I would want to touch anything called The Love Rug. It sounds nasty.

From the ad, "It's almost like having another lover there with the two of you." I bet that thing was only ever used by one dude at a time.

Check out the white man's 70's fro.

Look, it's Wayne and Garth


Google street view captured what appears to be the real life Wayne and Garth. Link.

Yvette's

This site is so horrible it actually goes around the spectrum back to art. I want to make a site like it.

Trucker Classic Covered by The Flying Burrito Brothers


The song is Six Days On The Road written by Killen, Alabama native Earl Green. Killen is about 5 miles from Muscle Shoals Alabama and ten from the Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.

Green also wrote a song about legendary Alabama outlaw, bootlegger, and bank robber DeWitt Dawson. I can't find the song, anywhere. There is only one reference to it in a newspaper archive from the early 70's, but it doesn't have the name. I'm doing research for a book about the Dawson Gang.

This was the future

This is how people saw the future in the 60's. They would be amazed at how we sit around all day in front of a tv using a typewriter to change the lights on the screen. It reminds me of George Jetson complaining about his button pushing finger being sore. Back then it was just a joke, when that actually happens to us today it's a serious medical condition we call carpal tunnel syndrome. From xkcd.com.
