    Hoverbikes: they're right up there with hoverboards for things I need yet don't exist despite being promised we'd have this sort of technology by the year 2000. You're lettin' me down, science! Thankfully, Australian Chris Malloy has taking matters (AND HIS LIFE) into his own... / Continue →

    NOTE: VIDEO BEST WATCHED WITH CANDY AND ICE CREAM BUT NOT POP-TARTS. I honestly didn't know what a strike out was until I watched this, and I think it's pretty safe to say I've been living my life in vain. This video is so jam packed with important life lessons that I'm thin... / Continue →

    The title alone might be the most profound thing I've ever written. I smell Pulitzer! So yeah, apparently wallabies are getting into medical poppy fields in Australia and going nuts. Whee! "The one interesting bit that I found recently in one of my briefs on the poppy indus... / Continue →

    This is a new commercial for Denny's advertising how cool it is to get all high out of your mind and then go eat breakfast at 4am -- but not before dropping a handful of acid in the parking lot. I mean, Jesus, the unicorn can't even chew his fries. And while I did appreciate ... / Continue →

    Well folks, it's 4.20, and if I was still in college right now I'd be rolling a four-paper dank-blunt and skipping all my classes. But I'm not -- I'm at work -- so I'm smoking swag in the janitor's closet and blowing through a spoof. It's pathetic. Not unlike this video, whi... / Continue →
