Darwin Awards 2008

Yeah, the Darwin Awards for 2008 have been published. You all know that by now, right?

Two things that caught my eye: First, in Run! No, Run Away!, was anybody else taught to run toward the train if your car got stuck on the tracks? My driver’s ed teacher in high school told us a story about a family who got stuck on the tracks with a train coming, and ran away from the train. The impact of the train tore the hood off, and it flew like a frisbee, slicing two of them in half.

Of course, while running toward the train, you want to stay off the actual tracks, which I guess that guy failed to grasp. The brakes, on a train? Not so grabby.

The second thing: I’m not sure if the description is bad, or the idea was just stupid that it can’t be worded clearly, but I can’t visualize the ropes at all on Pining Away. Any insights?

Eighties Schmeighties

I’m sure everyone’s seen the “Take On Me” flavor of this meme.

This is much better — funnier and yet less obnoxious. (And a better song in general, really.) Tears For Fears - Head Over Heels (Literal Version)

(And because I hate you — hate you ALL — The Rick Roll flavor. Sadly, it’s also hilarious. I’m sorry.)

[via Robb's comments]

“A Titanic Beauty” (as the tagline said)

(I know nothing about the site that made this, except that it trends toward funny)

…A Thing

During the writer’s strike, Joss Whedon decided to make a short film with no directors, producers, or writers outside of his family and friends. He recruited Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillon, and came up with:

Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

It’s about an aspiring supervillain and his nemesis, and their fight for a do-gooder girl, but there’s more to it than that… The soundtrack just came out last week, so it’s getting another blast of popularity. It’s funny and brilliant and sweet — like most of Joss Whedon’s work — and the music is surprisingly beautiful.

Go check it out.

Turtle-minator

Jaysus, this blog needs cheering up. Here’s a fearless turtle and a cute, highly bemused kitty.

Hilarious.

Into the Fray

The Lolcat Builder. Make your own lolcats. Or lolwhatevers.

Hee.

T-ball is fixed

The amazing Iowahawk takes on the Lileks issue, foreshadowing his forthcoming Strib position in boring, regular news. Follows it up with other authors on the paper. Sylvia Plath’s weather report is my personal favorite.

Brilliant. Iowahawk reminds me why I love blogs.

The fox gets tea, but the turtle has to eat grass?

I know it’s infantile, but I’m totally digging the new wallpaper themes on Google. They change! All day long, the picture changes and the sun and moon (and happenings in the scene) follow your time. So cute.

Ok, I’ll chill. But it’s still neat.

Save The Boobies

The 2006 Boobiethon starts today. Give ‘Til It Hurts!!

The Komen Foundation and the pictures are worth it. :o)

I have no idea why that keeps cracking me up.
