What?


Ok, so if your in to the gadget world, as I am, then you’ve probably heard of the Sony Rolly. It’s basically a dancing disco-esqe MP3 player that can be all yours for the low low price of 400 bucks.

I’m sure you’ve seen tech demos or something regarding it, but what about people who actually own them? Watch them actually playing songs from the west? Well, bring on the videos!

(more…)

Apparently so.

“My Husbands fallen and I can’t get his fat carcass off of me!”

A newspaper carrier checking the couple’s well-being found the woman in her Marion, Ill., home on April 27. She was trapped by the body of Fred Roberts after he suffered a heart attack four days earlier. He fell onto his wife, pinning one of her legs. She was unable to wriggle free

Ok, well, this failure wasn’t really due to anything anyone actually did, but more or less it was an “accidental” fail.

It’s been a slow fail day. Deal with it.

How hard is it to make a damn beverage advertisement?

It’s an easy four step process:

Step 1: Make tasty beverage and say to oneself “This shit is awesome…we should sell it!”

Step 2: Find market to sell it to and hire advertisement firm to sell your new tasty beverage.

Step 3: Make advertisement that DOES NOT INVOLVE ANTHROPAMORPHIC NUDE BEARS WEARING FIG LEAVES AND THE WORST LOOK ON ITS FACE EVER!!

Step 4: Profit.

I hate furries. Really. This crap is being seen around in France and you know what? I had better not EVER see anything like this abomination appear over here in the states. Ever.

Ugh….it’s like France sucks exponentially EVERY YEAR.

I’m sure everyones heard the Chacaron song by now. Well, if you haven’t here it is….but with The Simpsons!

I don’t care if it’s old. I supa-lol’d on this one. I showed it to a friend of mine and he has now claimed that his “brain just died”.

Hur.

It’s because we needed it to bring societies together he says.

For the social bonding and whatnot. Although he makes a unique argument about how Religion could have been born from the minds of imaginative people he doesn’t offer any scientific evidence to back it up. Anthropologists claim that “somewhere we evolved an imagination” but they have no evidence backing that up and considering that scientists today who specialize and study the brain have no real idea what “Imagination” really is or how the mind manages to do it they are pretty much just stuck with random thought trying to explain something.

Kinda like they are imagining a cause since there is no evidence to back up their claims.

See what I did there?

“What the transcendental social requires is the ability to live very largely in the imagination,” Bloch writes.

“One can be a member of a transcendental group, or a nation, even though one never comes in contact with the other members of it,” says Bloch. Moreover, the composition of such groups, “whether they are clans or nations, may equally include the living and the dead.”

Modern-day religions still embrace this idea of communities bound with the living and the dead, such as the Christian notion of followers being “one body with Christ”, or the Islamic “Ummah” uniting Muslims.

Interesting to say the least. However, I could also build a similar argument supporting religious activity and supporting God by opposing the ideas of Evolution and atheism. I could build a similar hypothesis by saying that mankinds own hubris and egocentric selves needed to find a way to distance themselves from God and by creating a scientific based theology they could steer the human population away from their creators in an effort to “throw the shackles of servitude” aside.

“And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb” And all that good stuff.

While it is an interesting theory it is, like most theory that involves the appearance or creation of man and their societal changes, only speculation and an “imaginative scenario” in itself. It’s just as futile to try and claim that this is “fact” when it is just as intangible to prove as Faith is.

So, either we imagined God to save our lives, or we have imagined that God doesn’t exist so that we don’t have to be held accountable for our lives.

Sorta.

Apparently Lesbos, Greece (The birthplace of famous carpet eating poet, Sappho) has taken offense with the fact that homosexual women call themselves “Lesbians”. The people who live in Lesbos are natively referred to as “Lesbians” but due to the fact that not ALL of them are gay they are taking offense to the fact that the term “Lesbians” has become an associated name for women who partake in homosexual acts.

“My sister can’t say she is a Lesbian,” said Dimitris Lambrou. “Our geographical designation has been usurped by certain ladies who have no connection whatsoever with Lesbos,” he said.

So, distraught as they are, they have decided to file suit against a homosexual group who uses the term “Lesbian” in its title.

Also called Mytilene, after its capital, Lesbos is famed as the birthplace of Sappho. The island is a favored holiday destination for gay women, particularly the lyric poet’s reputed home town of Eressos.

“This is not an aggressive act against gay women,” Lambrou said. “Let them visit Lesbos and get married and whatever they like. We just want (the group) to remove the word lesbian from their title.”

I could see how an entire nation would absolutely love to not be connected with the term. Considering that a person who isn’t gay that lives there probably hates having to explain to tourists or foreigners that they are not, in fact, a sapphic love partaker.

Maybe Lesbians (the gay kind) can just be referred to as Sapphians or Sapphoites…or something.

By far the funniest picture I’ve seen all day.
