Too much information...

Ever looked at a tweet or a facebook status update and gone "WHOA. Did. not. need. to. know."?

I ceratinely have.
If you enjoyed the experience, you'll probably enjoy Oversharers, a site filled to the brim with user-submitted screen shots and stories of people 'Oversharing'.

Here's a recently submitted tweet on the site:

Yes. That is John Mayer, the famous musician.

Fugly Ink

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

But SOME tattoos are just downright UGLY.

Ugliest Tattoos is a website devoted to pictures of poorly drawn, poorly spelled and just plain stupid tattoos that some idiots are going to be stuck with for life.

One of my personal spine tinglers is the troll:

This is why I'm fat

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...

One stood out in particular. The McGangBang. Two friends and I decided to give this a shot, so we skipped down to our local McDonalds at about 1am.

Voila le McGangBang:

It's quite simple:
Get a McDonalds Double Cheeseburger.
Pull it apart at the patties.
Slap a McChicken in the middle.
Put it together again and enjoy that filthy mother fucker.

My McGangBang after I'd taken a few bites (and Tom bombing the photo):

It tasted good. So good. So mother fucking good. But this little culinary treat comes with a warning. It does fucked up shit to your body. The side effects we experienced were: Chest pain, bloatedness, increased heart rate, and weird shit happening to your digestive system that I don't really want to go into much detail about.

Give it a shot, but have the emergency number ready just in case.

Obama-mania gone weird

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.

No surprises there. We all saw it coming.

But then shit got a bit weird...

I don't even know what the fuck he's doing in this one...

See the full set of photos of Obama in various weeeiiiird (but hilarious) poses HERE.

2222 Toothpicks = How many trees?

As years pass and the procrastination movement gets exponentially stronger, world records just keep getting wackier. George Gaspar holds the world record for holding the most toothpicks in his beard... 2222 toothpicks. Yes. Two thousand, two hundred and twenty two.
Watch the video...

And see the article on the Universal Record Database here.

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...

"Where dreams become heart attacks..."

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.

My personal favourite is the deep fried cheeseburger on a stick. Om nom nom...

Valuable Spider

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 do not have any money so am sending you this drawing I did of a spider instead.
I value the drawing at $233.95 so trust that this settles the matter.

The story made news reports and radio talk shows around the world. See the full email exchange between David and the company at his website here.
While you're there, take some time to have a look at his other articles and email exchanges, you will laugh til you cry... guaranteed.

Edible networking strategy?!

Being a marketing student, I learn a lot about consumer wants and needs...

Who the fuck wants or needs business cards made of meat?!

My baby looks like a gender confused prostitute

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. 

But that's a bit creepy. Seriously people. Get a life.

Anyway, this is the ugly mo fo that would be the result of me fornicating with Johnny Depp. Kinda puts me off the idea a bit... Looks like a she-male prossy called Shaniqua...

Visit Morph Thing HERE and make your own retarded/beautiful-in-their-own-way celebrity babies.

That's what she said

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.

On of my favourite Overheards comes from Overheard in New York:

Sick cop to another: The way I see it, you've got seven holes in your head. If you don't wanna get sick, you just gotta keep your fingers out of those seven holes. Then you'll be good.

Here's the collection of Overheard websites I've found: 
Overheard in...
Dublin (Most of the ones here are even written in a cute leprechaun-slang kind of dialect)

They're definitely worth a look if you're bored/procrastinating/wanting some lols.

I love smashing penguins into pulp

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). 

My high score is somewhere in the 700's - not overly impressive. Give it a go and post your high scores below :D

Don Hertzfeldt has issues

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.

Keeping Warm this Winter

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.

Remember when you used to have sleeping bag races as kids? Or maybe you don't. But I do. If only I had one of these, I would've totally owned those races. This is a wearable sleeping bag with sleeves and legs that zip up, and a lovely snuggly hood. This item is sure to keep you warm, but the price will give you the chills - US$124.20. If anyone does decide to invest in this, be sure to post a review in the form of a comment below.

A massive fleecy blanket... with SLEEVES :D This thing looks so god damn comfy and warm; I'd totally buy one if my overdraft wasn't nearly at its limit. The Slanket won't set you back as much as the Selk Bag, at a cost of US$56.50 for the full sized version. 

Learn The "Single Ladies" Dance
There's no cheaper, easier way to warm yourself up than to get up and move around a bit. Grab yourself a copy of "Single Ladies" by Beyonce and learn the dance from the video. This charming young man is here to help you. Go on, give it a shot.

Innovation? Or just a high-tech pedophilia gadget?

Switched, a news/blog site on all things geeky and technological. They've just released a very interesting piece on 8 Weird GPS Devices. 

One of the weirdest of weird in my opinion is the GPS School Uniform. That's right, devices sewn into kids school uniforms to track their location. Innovative, maybe, for those suspicious parents who want to know their child's every move, but maybe just a teensy weensy bit of privacy invasion...? And if some charming man with a socially frowned-upon fetish managed to access this GPS data? 

But anyway, it's a quirky invention none the less.

Eminem gets some Bruno treatment

Some footage from the MTV Movie Awards, 2009. Eminem gets a lovely surprise from the great Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno. Take a squiz...

Was that scripted? Or did Eminem really get an unexpected faceful?
YOU be the judge :D
