Creepiest. Santa. Ever.

I have this uncanny urge to move out, ASAP. Thanks for nothing, Everything Is Terrible.

A Very Zombie Holiday

Bailey (@the_author_) asks if this is the best thing, or the bestest thing. I suggested I should submit it for independent verification via my blog. What say you, readers?

Things Fox News viewers “know” that just ain’t so

I thought you might like to see this set of survey responses from a survey done on December 9th, cross-referenced against what TV station the viewers happened to watch. The most interesting set of responses were from Fox News viewers. All of these beliefs are totally and completely demonstrably false. They are as follows: * …

Wikirebels, an SVT documentary

This documentary, produced by SVT (the Swedish BBC), explains the entire Wikileaks story up til December 11th, when it was released. It includes coverage of the Assange rape allegations, though its focus is on the inception, growth and struggles of Wikileaks itself. It is surprisingly sympathetic to the concept of Wikileaks as a stateless journalistic …

Yesterday the US Senate voted 63-33 to end cloture, then voted 65-31 (including eight Republicans) to repeal the strange …

A totally heterosexual performance for Pope’s benefit

Via BoingBoing: Yeah. Ratzinger looks like he really enjoyed that performance. So too did the nuns! Not that they’re thinking anything lascivious, mind you. They’re married to God after all.

This Mario shit just got real

Easily the awesomest GTA4 machinima I’ve ever seen. I’d watch this film in theatres. If it existed.

Ice volcanos are cool

Titan, one of Saturn’s moons and one of our solar system’s prime candidates for life (as it has liquid water), evidently has cryovolcanoes — volcanoes that erupt flowing ice. This is so damn cool. Literally.

Thunderf00t buys into the “hype” hype

In toto, the video he made is correct on the facts, except it glosses over one key fact — the press conference was basically exactly what people are demanding of scientists day-in and day-out with regard to scientific outreach. It is imperative that we “dumb down” science to an extent, to communicate its importance to …
