Some tattoos are cool. Some tattoos are cute. Some tattoos are badass.

Some of you may remember when I posted a link to the website This is Why You're Fat. I scrolled through that whole site gazing over the culinary miracles before my eyes. I wanted to try them. All of them. Each and every one. I was gutted at the absense of recipes. Some of the food on display, however, seemed quite simple. Simple enough to try out...

When Barack Obama was elected president of the USA in late 2008, Obama-mania swept the world. People cried with joy and hugged strangers in the street. Fair enough. Some Japanese toymaker brought out a Barack Obama action figure.

Improv Everywhere are a group from New York who pull public stunts for fun. This one wasn't so much of a stunt, just a super cool thing to do. They gave some random newlyweds who they didn't even know a surprise wedding reception! Watch the video, it'll melt your heart...

This is a website devoted to the most disgustingly fatty/sugary/salty but god damn delicious food in the world. Scroll through and feast your eyes on pictures that will make your mouth water but your arteries cry out for mercy.

David Thorne was a bit short of cash and behind in paying his bills. He received a letter reminding him to pay the $233.95 that he owed. He replied:
I value the drawing at $233.95 so trust that this settles the matter.

Morph Thing is one of the many marvellous time wasters I've thrown away much of my precious life exploring. They have a gallery filled with portraits of famous people that you can morph together to make super celebrity hybrids. What more could you want on a Thursday evening?! You can also upload your own pictures and morph yourself with celebrities or friends and produce rough impressions of what your babies could look like. You could even morph pictures of yourself and that guy you're madly in love with but are to scared to talk to him so I just stalk him on facebook and print his pictures out and put them on my wall and see what our babies will look like when I manage to acquire some of his sperm cells and artificially inseminate myself.

Oh yes, she did just say that. This is the Overheard series of websites. They're websites with a collection of quoted weird and hilarious overheard conversations in public spaces. Lots of places have their own Overheard website. Why, even little New Zealand has its own Overheard site.
Bloody Penguin Toss. This game is a bit of a variation on Kitten Cannon. It involves a penguin being pitched to a yeti, who then proceeds to smash it with a spiked club as far as it can go, with the help of a few land mines along the way. Blood everywhere, as you can well imagine. This is the kind of game for people who enjoy bludgeoning endangered species to death, but don't want to deal with the implications of the law (quite a niche market I would think).
If you've got 9 minutes and 21 seconds to kill (or maybe you don't but want to kill it anyway), this is the perfect way to do so. Here is a cartoon created by Don Hertzfeldt. It's hilarious in very absurd ways. Enjoy.

For those of us lucky enough to live in the southern hemisphere, winter is rearing its butt-ugly head and giving us all the willies. Fortunatley you can find a few solutions to the cold on the majestic, all powerful, all knowing internet. Give those shitty, oversized power bills a big, wet kiss goodbye.
Switched, a news/blog site on all things geeky and technological. They've just released a very interesting piece on 8 Weird GPS Devices.
