I don't know why this is so funny.

but it's taking all of my willpower not to play it over and over again.

"Stanley, I have something to tell you.

The baby...

It's not yours!" (okay, hit play.)

who's happy to be done with grad school?



pick me

but seriously, have we seen this?

I'm highly amused, and also a little sad for those of us who are/may be pursuing a phd...but these comics are funny because they're *exaggerations* of reality, no?

edit: apologies for the wonkiness of the picture in the first version of this post -- I did some photoshopping and hopefully the text is actually readable now. if not...might I suggest sucking it?

this is amazing. I kind of really want to go on this game show. who's up for a trip to japan?

"birthplace of aviation," indeed

I see what Daytonites really spend their time researching:

PS: I realize this article is two years old, but apparently it has recently experienced a resurgence of interest in the blogosphere. Which, conveniently, we are in.

RIP, mr. wizard

mr. wizard died! sad...

and I can't think of mr. wizard without recalling one of my favorite gags on "dinosaurs". I didn't have any luck finding a clip on youtube, so this sound bite will have to do...

Sunday, June 10, 2007 short videos

These are all videos that I took by accident, but I think they have a certain charm. Picasa doesn't do them justice, so here are the full versions:

There is something oddly hypnotic about setting Windows Media Player (or whatever) to loop the video when it's played and watching it over and over again. Sort of like

In related news, who is going to create the first "lolkat" out of this picture?

Finally: Harry Potter gossip. Warning: possible spoiler for the whole series if it is real. But it is quite possible that it is not. Someone claims to have posted a page from the last book here:

I won't even tell you what it claims, in case you don't want to look. I myself suspect it is fake.

PS: Congrats to Dani for surviving today!

Guess who I just saw...

... on an episode of the second season of Lois and Clark? That would be none other than David Bowe (NOT David Bowie), star of UHF, playing an evil opthamologist that blinds Superman. I'm watching as I post, so I can't tell you how it turns out... but I am on the edge of my seat.

This one's my favorite

And I'm embarrassed by how long it took for me to figure out "hobowned."
