Cause, really? we can’t do any worse. *I’m pretty sure that adds up to something in roman numerals (but only if we assume that O= zero and E= 1,000 set on edge… which I do.)

License to Binge!

According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, “People who eat chocolate regularly tend to be thinner…” That’s where I stopped reading. It’s got to be true; I read it on the BBC News site. I think the British are genetically incapable of publishing fallacious or specious material. I eat chocolate pretty […]

No… I’ve looked on the interwebs, and there’s at least one other incident of observation. But that’s not going to stop me from opining myself, as I came upon the connection [albeit a ‘tetch late] independently. So:  The Google Android is a rip-off of the Zero Punctuation imp.

Disturbing Star Wars Toy Sculptures

It’s nice to see that the kid from Toy Story has managed to turn his need for therapy into a marketable skill. Well… no, not really. These cyber-pop-punk [creepy-ass [[but still really cool]]] pieces are by Brad & Stacy Rader. The artists do not limit themselves to mutilating Star Wars collectables; they mutilate Spider Man, […]
