    This is a short video of a 2-year old communicating with a group of turkeys hanging out in his neighborhood. Apparently if you gobble similar enough to a turkey, they'll respond. I guess that's why turkey calls exist for hunters. It all makes sense now. I couldn't really un... / Continue →

    This is the 'I Survived Another Meeting That Should Have Been An Email' award designed and sold by pop artist Will Bryant for $3.50. I feel like he should have made it a purple participation ribbon instead of blue. Blue is usually reserved for first place, and if you regular... / Continue →

    In an effort to raise awareness of the dangers of walking and texting, China has opened separate walkways for people who are using their cell phones, and people who aren't. They're meant to be ironic though, and encourage people to think before texting and knocking over somebo... / Continue →

    Seen here on the far right about to wish she'd just called instead, a texting woman unknowingly prepares to fall down two stairs and eat the ground. No word on how it tasted, but my guess is pretty f***ing good considering she ate so much she couldn't back get up. Hit the jum... / Continue →
