I hate geese. I really do.

Okay, for some reason WordPress won’t embed this, so Clicky-Clicky. You’ll be glad you did, it’s funny and really imaginative and awesome.
So, Russia is Threatening Us With Missile Strikes (again/still)…
Actually, hasn’t there always been a veiled threat of nuclear annihilation, even in the 20 years following the Cold War? Has anything really changed?
On the other hand, I understand what they’re upset about. It’s almost like we’re planting nukes right off the borders of their country, kind of like planting nuke weapons on the island of Cuba, off the coast of Florida, in the 1960’s. But what about Iran? Does one crazy country give the west the right to plant nukes? And should we even be using nukes at all? We have really big freaking bombs that are short of being nuclear. Shouldn’t we simply deploy more of these, and not have to worry about radiation fallout and heightened cancer rates in parts of the world for the next several hundred years?
TV’s Best Worst Very Special Episodes
In the immortal words of that great muse, Kelly Kapowski, dumb. But fun for a few minutes.
Just Because You Own A Corvette Doesn’t Mean You Should.
Skip to about 38 seconds if you just can’t wait for the brilliance.
I think someone needs to downgrade to a Chevy Cobalt until they can get themselves under control.
They are coming: The most awesome LOTR / Sesame Street / Keebler Elves shirt ever.
US Debt visualized, in stacks of $100 bills. In other words, my most depressing link ever.
Why does history (and history class) use wars as bullet-points (pun intended)? I like to base mine on outer-space events. The 50’s for Sputnik, not the Korean War. The 60’s for Buzz Aldrin being the second guy on the moon, not Vietnam. And the 70’s for the most awesomely named interstellar probes ever, Viking 1 & Viking 2, and not…the Vietnam War? Still? That’s almost as long as the war in Iraq.
Uday Hussein, and why it we should have taken that demon alive.
Every UFO sighting in the great state of Minnesota. I saw what I “thought” was a UFO cruise over my car as I was driving along I-90, somewhere near Blue Earth, Minnesota. About 2 seconds later I saw a couple more, and realized a very vibrant meteor shower was happening all around me. The fragments were quite large to my naked eye, looking about 1/3 the size of the moon that night, so it had to have landed quite close to me, relatively speaking.
The Straight Dope finally answers, “Is There A God?”
One more reason why Steve Jobs was kind of a dick.
Fourteen anti-prohibition pictures. I love these people. Beer good.
86th Birthday: A Rage Comic by an octogenarian.
Georgia Field Hands – Mary Don’t you Weep
For Pharoh’s army got drowned. via BoingBoing.
Getting Out Of A Rut (kinda not safe for work, mostly just a lot of F***’s)
Hot chicks of Occupy Wall Street. There should be advertising on here, I bet it still gets a few thousand hits a week. This site is safe for work, with the exception of some swearing on the video at the bottom. Although the title of the website is something you may not want to show up on your employer’s web filter.
Vintage Frigidair advertisements. Highly cool. Pun intended.
Marijuana promotes creativity, via BoingBoing. I haven’t smoked since before joining the military in 2001, and I have no immediate plans on doing so either. But I think pot really needs to be legalized already. And so do 51% of our citizens.
The 1976 7UP Bi-Centennial Cans. Basically, 50 cans (one for every US state) could be stacked to make a nifty picture.
Woke up to a strange noise in the chimney…
Giving the FBI all the information it could ever want on yourself. Basically, the FBI thought this guy was a terrorist in 2002, not even a year after 9/11. After a long time harranging him, he finally devised a way to track damn near everything he did in his life, and a way to give this mass-load of info to the government. And it worked. The justifications on why this is a good idea are contained in the article.
The truth about James Cameron, and why he’s both the world’s biggest jerk and completely awesome.
Praise of Bad Technology, or why a cheap $20 mp3 player is better than a $200 player.
Sexually Confused / Frustrated Deer
Why do I never get tired of seeing a deer mount a decoy? I’ve seen 3 different videos of this occurring, and it’s hilarious to me everytime.
Tree Trials and Tribulations
This is what you’re Christmas Tree is going through. Merry Christmas you BUTCHERS! 🙂 via
Life without left turns, and how much easier/safer/faster it is.
Fred Schneider (from the B-52’s) interviewed, with some clips from his side-project “The Superions”.
Pictures of Really Big Cleaning Jobs. Like Big Ben and Mount Rushmore.
Clark Kent tries (and fails) at being lovingly domestic.
Stitch-work Optimus Prime (that really transforms!)
Some touchy German guy has a problem with some of the USA’s dumbest expressions. Example: The proof is in the pudding.
An Iranian-American took pictures of herself as both an Iranian and an American, in the same room, etc. Just click, it’s really neat.
So, P.T. Barnum never did say “There’s A Sucker Born Every Minute”.
What Siri will really be used for. (My wife has a new iPhone, and yes, we do this crap all the time.)
The Learning Thermostat (from the folks who designed the iPod). If I hadn’t JUST gotten a new thermostat this year, I’d be all over this. I still might be actually, since programming our current thermostat has led to some really chilly evenings at home, or waking up to a too-warm house, with me sweating. Not pleasant.
Minor changes to Bugloaf
I added a “latte” color to the backgrounds (which only appear on the left and right sides of the page), and I doubled-up the sidebar on the right side (so there are now 2 sidebars). If you hate any of this, let me know in the comments. Thanks! -Aaron
So, I guess there are Ninja Nuns…
Awesome or scary? Makes me glad I survived Catholic high school.
Jimeon at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival back in 2010
This guy is pretty good, and worth 4 minutes of your time.
