    A new tech start-up claims they've developed a cell phone charger that can fully charge a phone in 30-seconds. For reference, that is 29-seconds slower than the cell phone charger I'm developing with the help of alien technology. "GW? Why is there a curly phone cord poking o... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →

    This is a shot of what was allegedly the last Blockbuster movie rental in the history of Blockbuster movie rentals in the United States. Honestly, I thought all Blockbusters had closed awhile ago because mine has been a cycling gym for over a year now. The picture was taken o... / Continue →

    These are two recipes for Harry Potter butterbeer tasting coffee drinks available at Starbucks. Allegedly they're part of Starbucks' "secret menu", which isn't so much a secret menu as it is a bunch of shit the barrista will have no clue how to make when you try to order it. ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, more legible version HERE but you still won't be able to read the really small states, which is exactly why they should just join together to form one bigger state. This is the Corporate States of America, a map of the US created by Steve Lovelace (I love sheer m... / Continue →

    This is a series of corporate logos reimagined by artist Ben Fellowes with a zombie apocalypse theme. That doesn't make a lot of sense, but I've learned to not ask questions about these things. Mostly because the one time I did ask a question the dude kneed me in the balls. ... / Continue →

    This is a very brief history of operating system scroll bars. It's not inclusive though, because I don't even see the one I'm using on there. Regardless, they've really come a long way, haven't they? SPOILER: Nope. Thanks to Deacon, who, based on his email, is apparently VE... / Continue →

    Note: Full-size version HERE in case you're dying to know who makes Fruit By The Foot. This is a pictograph depicting which of the ten big parent companies make your favorite tampons/chips/detergent/fruit snacks/dog food/candy/soda. Me? I like Alpo. Some dogs like Purina bu... / Continue →

    According to a study by people who study stuff and try to pretend it's a job (like blogging!), the zombie industry is worth almost $6-billion. My life? My life is worth nothing. "I'll take it." Haha -- nice try, Lucifer! Regardless of the reason, zombies are worth billions... / Continue →

    Foxconn, the electronics manufacturer best known for making Apple's iPhones and iPads (but who also manufactures electronics for Acer, Amazon, Asus, Intel, Cisco, HP, Dell, Nintendo, Nokia, Microsoft and Sony), plans to "hire" over a million robots in the next three years to re... / Continue →

    This is a Coke billboard in the Philippines touting the company's greenliness. How earth-friendly is Coke besides the billboard? I have no clue. Probably not very. Whenever I have to guess about something like this I always err on the side of "companies really don't give a ... / Continue →

    Remember last Friday when Google featured a playable Pac-Man demo on its homepage to celebrate the game's 30th anniversary? Turns out that shit seriously put the hurt on work productivity. Suck it, the man! The average person spends about 4.5 active minutes on Google.com eac... / Continue →

    The logo has a subliminal character included! It's Pac-Man! Well, Pac-Man AFTER I BROKE HIS YELLOW-ASS JAW FOR EATING MY CHERRIES. I called them first, jerk! Oh, the Missus called -- she said you should eat out. I assume she meant literally, like at a restaurant, because I... / Continue →

    'I'm on a Mac' is a music video spoofing -- you'll never guess -- The Lonely Island's, 'I'm on a Boat'. It was good and watching it I surprisingly didn't want to jam the business end of an umbrella in my eyes and ears. So, yeah, I guess that's an endorsement. Corporate Ameri... / Continue →

    This is a montage of AT&T commercials from 1993 that basically predict the future with 100% accuracy. Now I'm not suggesting somebody at AT&T ripped the space-time continuum, BUT THEN WHERE DID THIS FLYING DELOREAN COME FROM?! AT&T, you have some splainin' to do. GIMME THE S... / Continue →
