    Note: Larger, more legible version HERE. This is a US map depicting the 124 states that could have been if every time a piece of a state tried to break away from the rest it had been successful. When I conquer and rule the country? One big state: GW-LAND. Yeah, and we're ju... / Continue →

    Some peen-loving jokester (God, aren't we all?) in Victoria, Australia managed to draw a really crappy looking wiener on one of the camera lenses of a Google Street View car. As far as wieners go, it's not a very good one. On a scale from 1 to 10 it's like a 2 (is that...supp... / Continue →

    I can't believe it took this long. And, who knows, maybe it's happened before. I mean, birds shit on my car all the time. Cats too. And, at least twice this year, a homeless man. Well, from a purely technical standpoint, that was actually IN the car. And speaking of which... / Continue →
