Suspicious Looking Device

Someone has a little too much time on their hands I think. πŸ™‚

The only function of the Suspicious Looking device is to appear as suspicious as possible, whether carried in hand or placed indiscrimately in public places.

The SLD contains LEDs, a LED array, a character display, an optical distance sensor, capacitive touch sensor, buzzer, and motors.

Bush’s Crap Is Top Secret

What the hell? πŸ™‚

The White House flew in a special portable toilet to Vienna for Bush’s personal use during his visit. The Bush White House is so concerned about Bush’s security, the veil of secrecy extends over the president’s bodily excretions. The special port-a-john captured Bush’s feces and urine and flew the waste material back to the United States in the event some enterprising foreign intelligence agency conducted a sewage pipe operation designed to trap and examine Bush’s waste material. One can only wonder why the White House is taking such extraordinary security measures for the presidential poop.

In the past, similar operations were conducted against foreign leaders to determine their medical condition. However, these intelligence operations were directed against dictators in countries where even the medical conditions of the top political leaders were considered “state secrets.”

Google’s Quantum Warping?

I was getting a map to the courthouse for my Early Neutral Evaluation Conference this afternoon, and I noticed something… Broadway Avenue in downtown San Diego seems to have some sort of quantum warping going on. The buildings on the north side of the street appear to be leaning on the buildings on the south side of the street.

I’ve been down there myself, and that certainly doesn’t appear to be the case when you are up close, but obviously it *is* happening, as you can see when viewed from outer space…


It’s actually pretty interesting how Google splices the images together, because obviously it’s not done in a straight line…

104 Year Old Lady Takes 21st Husband

I bet the consummation of the marriage was a glorious and beautiful site to behold. πŸ™‚

A 33-year-old man in northern Malaysia has married a 104 year-old woman, saying mutual respect and friendship had turned to love.

It was Muhamad Noor Che Musa’s first marriage and his wife’s 21st, according to reports in the country.

Muhamad, an ex-army serviceman, said he found peace and a sense of belonging after meeting Wook Kundor, whom he said he initially sympathised with because she was childless, old and alone, the report said.

“I am not after her money, as she is poor,” Muhamad reportedly said. “Before meeting Wook, I never stayed in one place for long.”

He said he hoped to help his new bride to master Roman script while she taught him Islamic religious knowledge.

The report did not say if any of Wook’s previous 20 husbands are still alive. Malaysian Muslim men are allowed by their religion to take up to four wives at a time, but reports of women who marry more than once are rare.

Shania Twain Helps Drunk Driver Drive

This is just weird… and even weirder that he got off because of it.

One of the most notorious drunk drivers in the Ottawa area has been found not criminally responsible on his latest impaired driving charges because of a mental disorder that makes him believe female celebrities are controlling his actions.

Matt Brownlee was arrested last October after police spotted a pickup truck speeding along a busy street in downtown Ottawa.

The 33-year-old man told psychiatrists that he knew the legal repercussions of his actions, but believed singer Shania Twain was helping him drive.

Brownlee pleaded not guilty to four charges, including impaired operation of a motor vehicle and driving while disqualified.

On Monday, the judge drew on several psychiatric assessments in ruling that Brownlee was not criminally responsible for his actions because he suffers from delusions that celebrities such as Twain are communicating with him telepathically.

Ten years ago, Brownlee was given a seven-year prison sentence and barred from driving for the rest of his life after he killed an Ottawa woman, Linda Lebreton-Holmes, and her 12-year-old son while driving with a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.

Earlier in March, a psychiatrist told the court that Brownlee suffers from psychosis and mood disorders resulting from a brain injury caused by the 1996 car crash.

Brownlee has been undergoing a series of assessments at the Brockville Psychiatric Hospital since last fall.

Another assessment of how much risk he poses to the community could see Brownlee being detained in hospital, released under supervision in the community, or given an absolute discharge.

Man Cuts Off Own Penis To Throw At Cops

I don’t really have anything that I can say that would make this any more (or less depending on who you are) funny… But DAMN it’s funny. πŸ™‚

Fik, 33, cut off his own penis during a Northwest Side rampage Wednesday morning. When confronted by police, Fik hurled several knives and his severed organ at the officers, police said. Officers stunned him with a Taser and took him into custody.


How To C-Walk

I don’t even know what in the hell a “C-Walk” is, but it’s pretty funny. πŸ™‚

First you must begin with a signature stance, something that says,”Watch Out FOOL!

After that, take a quick little breather. But keep looking cool.

You should have the proper state of mind, such as pretending you have ants in your pants.

During your c-walk, take the time to check out the ladies if you’re impressing them at all.


Hat Of Poop

If you ever wanted to wear poop on your head, but didn’t care for the smell, now you can!

The Japanese aren’t shy about bodily secretions and have a sense of humor about them unparalleled. And with their ability to make anything cute and cuddly, they have made even poo an irresistible fashion trend. This joke poo hat has the unmistakable color and shape of dung. With a black elastic strap to keep it firmly on your head, this plush poop is 5.5″ wide at the base and 4″ high. A fun party item or just wear it to make everyone around you think you’ve gone crazy. A hilarious item that is made in Japan… where else?


The guy wearing the hat looks “so” happy about it. hah

Family Walks On All Fours

I saw this a couple weeks ago, and just now ran across it again. Dammit, I forgot to post it the first time around… oh well… better late than never.

An extraordinary family who walk on all fours are being hailed as the breakthrough discovery which could shed light on the moment Man first stood upright.

Scientists believe that the five brothers and sisters found in Turkey could hold unique insights into human evolution.

The Kurdish siblings, aged between 18 and 34 and from the rural south, Γ’β‚¬Λœbear crawlÒ€ℒ on their feet and palms.

Study of the five has shown the astonishing behaviour is not a hoax and they are largely unable to walk otherwise.

Researchers have found a genetic condition which accounts for their extraordinary movement.

And it could provide invaluable information on how humans evolved from a four-legged hominid into a creature walking on two feet.

Coke and Mentos

I’m not sure why, but the video oddly makes me want to try it myself to see if it really works. πŸ™‚


We confirmed that this does work. πŸ™‚ We didn’t quite have as good of a technique for getting the Mentos into the 2 liter bottle as quickly, but it does in fact work. Maybe Julien or Scott will post the video to YouTube.

Insect Cyborgs

I saw this on Boing Boing this afternoon… it looks like DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is starting to research the feasibility of engineering insect cyborgs…

Quote from their website

DARPA seeks innovative proposals to develop technology to create insect-cyborgs, possibly enabled by intimately integrating microsystems within insects, during their early stages of metamorphoses. The healing processes from one metamorphic stage to the next stage are expected to yield more reliable bio-electromechanical interface to insects, as compared to adhesively bonded systems to adult insects. Once these platforms are integrated, various microsystem payloads can be mounted on the platforms with the goal of controlling insect locomotion, sense local environment, and scavenge power. Multidisciplinary teams of engineers, physicists, and biologists are expected to work together to develop new technologies utilizing insect biology, while developing foundations for the new field of insect cyborg engineering. The HI-MEMS may also serve as vehicles to conduct research to answer basic questions in biology.

Get Drunk Remotely

The site calls them “Lover’s Cups”, but I think they are just a way for lazy people to get drunk with each other (like if I’m too lazy to go to a buddies house)…

Lover’s Cups explore the idea of sharing feelings of drinking between two people in different places by using cups as communication interfaces of drinking. Two cups are wireless connected to each other with sip sensors and LED illumination. The Lover’s cups will glow when your lover is drinking. When both of you are drinking at the same time, both of the Lover’s Cups glow and celebrate this virtual kiss.


Neverland Ranch Shut Down

Today is a sad, sad day for the entire world… Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch was shut down today…

Michael Jackson has been ordered to shut his Neverland ranch by California authorities who have fined the pop star $US169,000 ($230,700) for failing to pay his employees or maintain proper insurance.

Jackson’s sprawling ranch in the central California foothills was closed yesterday, at least temporarily, by an agent of the State Labor Commissioner after the office discovered that his workers’ compensation policy had lapsed in January.

On a brighter note, Michael Jackson is looking pretty good these days, don’t you think?

Voice Controlled Blender (Blendie)

Okay, this is kind of odd… this is a blender you scream at to make it work. πŸ™‚ (link to blueprint)

People induce the blender to spin by sounding the sounds of its motor in action. A person may growl low pitch blender-like sounds to get it to spin slow (Blendie pitch and power matches the person) and the person can growl blender-style at higher pitches to speed up Blendie. The experience for the participant is to speak the language of the machine and thus to more deeply understand and connect with the machine. The action may also bring about personal revelations in the participant. The participant empathizes with Blendie and in this new approach to a domestic appliance, a conscious and personally meaningful relationship is facilitated.


Cat Piano

What gets me is the guy that invented this thing probably spent months “perfecting” it. What an excellent use of his time while his friends were out inventing useless things like a telephone or steam engine.

In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate catÒ€ℒs tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy.
