I like my fish cooked. Not only cooked, but long since dead, with the head and all the other junk removed. I could barely stomach watching this video of a fish that was still alive after being partially cooked – and then eaten… while the poor think continues to gasp for air.
I realize that in the wild, animals eat other animals while they are still alive, so the fact that they are eating a live fish does not disturb me – the fact that it has been deep-fried and is still alive – well, that’s just in-humane.
I have never seen a bear deep fry and then eat a still live salmon…
A Finnish software developer has had a USB flash drive implanted into his prosthetic finger. After losing part of his finger in a motorcycle accident last year, Jerry Jalava’s doctor suggested he have a USB drive built into his replacement digit.
When he needs to use it he simply pops off his finger and sticks it into the computer. I think this is a great idea, and am thinking about getting a couple drives surgically implanted into my nipples. (I was going to say somewhere else, but that’s too crude even for me to write publically – although I guess I just kinda did.)
I am a golfer. I’m not a very good golfer, but I’m still a golfer. When I am out golfing and the urge to pee comes around, I usually look for the nearest washroom, or if absolutely necessary, find a tree (us guys are good at that you know).
But when I saw this invention I thought, I need to buy that! Wait, no… that’s not what I thought at all, sorry, got confused there. What I thought was; “this is the stupidest thing I have ever seen in my life”. At first I thought it was a joke, then after digging up more YouTube videos on it I have come to the conclusion that the UroClub is real.
Give me a break. (it is still funny though – like something dreamt up by the writers at Saturday Night Live)
These two videos make me think this thing is for real…
A few days ago I posted about a “how to cook with sperm” cookbook. I must say I dont know where these people come from – I just dont understand. I thought, there cant possibly be much of a market for that.
Today I saw that failblog had uncovered a great price on the number one needed ingredient:
So I see a lot of weird stuff – and some of it is super disgusting. Case in point: today I had an instant message sent over to me from a good friend. I will leave his name out of this post as I am sure he does not want anyone knowing he was shopping around for this stuff.
At first I was positive this must be some kind of a joke. I checked out the site, scanned through some of the sample pages, and while I am pretty convinced this is not a joke, I really really really wish it was.
So even though this book does appear to exist, I am willing to guess that the vast majority of purchases were likely made by people looking for that perfect gag gift.
I am half tempted to buy it, just for the laughs it would bring me to put it on the table after having company over for dinner. “Oh, that pasta you liked so much, I got the recipe from this book”.
I remember back in the day when my wife and I first moved in together. We were starving students, and had some old furniture that the land lord had left in the garage. It was ugly. Soooo ugly. But its all we had, and we made due with it.
As we grew older, and graduated, and got jobs, we over time replaced everything with nice stuff. Now we are adults, not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
I never miss those old ugly couches we had – actually, I don’t think I have ever thought about them till today when someone at twitter posted a link to “the ugliest couches in the world”.
Wow – there are sure some ugly couches out there – makes our old ones look like something you would find in the Whitehouse!
If you need a quick break to check out a good dose of ugly, there are 27 photos listed to keep you busy.
Nothing like a fresh glass of urine in the morning! Last week NASA sent up a gift to the International Space Station, and it could have astronauts literally drinking their pee with a twist of sweat and a dash of shaving cream.
A new water purification system will save NASA huge amounts of money once hooked up and ready to go. Currently the cost to ship a pint of fresh water to space is around $10,000. The new system will drastically reduce the fresh shipments by making use of existing liquids already in space.
Soon the new “Water Recovery System” will take in fluids used in showering, shaving, tooth brushing, hand washing, water vapor and sweat from inside space suits, and yes even urine, and produce fresh, clean, clear water – water that is actually more pure than the stuff that comes out of your kitchen faucet.
Recycling water and oxygen is critical to sustaining life in space, which makes this is an important step forward.
I have seen shows where raw sewage is taken and purified to produce water that is cleaner than anything you’d get from your tap, but this still disgusts me. It’s entirely mental – I’m sure that if someone gave me two glasses, one with tap water, and one with recycled urine, I would probably find the old pee tastes better, but still, it’s a difficult concept to swallow.
