Seriously, look at this guy, he's all "Skull hard... hurt finger."


EDIT: Actually he kind of looks like Paul Rudd

If you like disasters the way *I* like disasters...

In the fourth grade I did a class report on the sinking of the Titanic. In eighth grade I did a middle school-wide report on the destruction of Pompeii. I've always been a bit of an odd duck.

Fortunately other people with way more talent than me are also odd ducks, and back in 2009 this time-lapse animation of Pompeii's final day was created for the Melbourne Museum:

Now there's also an animation of the Titanic sinking, and this one is not time-lapse, it's all 2 hours and forty minutes of watery terror.

In both of these videos, there are sound effects but no people, which gives them a really eerie feel.

Happy Friday!

You disgust this leopard/cheetah/stankface jungle cat both coming and going.
Both your front crotch area and your back crotch area are nauseating to him/her/it.

Also your tag is up in the back. Fix it.

First there was the vodka poured over a woman's breasts before bottling

Then there was the vaginal yeast yogurt.

Now there's vagina essence beer.

Brewed by the Order of Yoni, Bottled Instinct beer is a "sour ale containing femininity, sensuality, charm, passion, sexuality by using vaginal lactobacillus bacteria in the brewing process."

If you would care to encourage this kind of idiocy there is an Indigogo campaign running. As of this writing they've only gotten 279 of their 150,000 Euro goal.

Parrot man, Ted Richards

In the vein of Stalking Cat (RIP) and Caim Divell, parrot man Ted has had his ears removed to look more like his parrots.

Here he models the implants designed to keep his glasses on his face. Instead of using, you know, his ears.

As parrots don't wear glasses, I'd expect his next move to be lasik.
