super mario fustration

23 minutes of a new york jew hailing from russia getting extremely frustrated playing hacker-designed levels of super mario bros. probably only humorous for gamers or people with mario experience.

Murphy's Law For Pizza Delivery Drivers

thought this was funny

# The odds that your delivery to the apartment complex will be on the first floor is inversely proportional to the number of pizzas and drinks you are carrying. Corollary: All deliveries to apartment complexes are upstairs and the more pizzas and the harder it is raining, the more flights you'll have to climb.
# The odds on getting a tip are inversely proportional to how hard it is raining, the further you have to drive to get there, and the further away from the address you must park.
# If a kid answers the door, you're not getting a tip.
# While waiting for pizza delivery orders to come out of the oven, the one that goes to the worst neighborhood to a known stiffer always is ready first.
# The only house in the neighborhood with their porch light off will be the house you're looking for.
# The higher the gas prices, the lower the tips.
# The harder it rains, the further away you'll have to park.
# The worse the weather, the more people call for pizza delivery
# People who call for pizza delivery five minutes before the store closes will live at the far edges of the delivery area, in a house with no number on the house or mailbox, and they'll stiff you.
# When looking for a house in a neighborhood with no numbers on the house or mailboxes, you'll always pick the wrong house.
# When being given a delivery on a busy street during rush hour, the address will always be on the other side of the street.
# The worse the neighborhood, the longer you'll have to wait for the customer to answer the door.
# The further away from the store and the closer it is to closing time, the more likely a customer will give you a large bill you must bring back to the store to have changed
# The older the order, the more likely you'll get lost or get stuck in slow traffic
# The quicker you arrive at an address, the more likely they'll not be home or they'll be taking a shower.
# When taking multiple orders, always deliver to the known stiffers last.
# If you have to call a customer on your cell phone on the way to a delivery to get directions they won't answer their phone.
# The harder it is raining, the more likely the customer won't have a roofed porch.
# The busier the store, the more often you'll need to use the bathroom.
# The odds for a decent night's tips are inversely proportional to how badly you need the money.


no i havent died

sorry for the lapse in bloggerific blogginess, but i just had to be focusing on other things this past week. dont worry though, i've been stockpiling a bundle of goodies and i should post em up either tonight or tomorrow. stay tuned.


Battlestar Galactica Season 3 Gag Reel

good stuff. its odd watching this since its such a counterpoint to the heaviness of the show.


animal hold out competition

the object is to see how many of the animals favorite treats can be stacked on or around them without them giving in to temptation. pretty funny.

i have no idea how this is even possible

jack russel terrier playing with an interactive soccer floor display.

aww. dumb dog. he would probably keep this up for hours if you let him.

actually, now that i think about it, this could be a pretty useful tool for keepin those rowdy pets entertained while you are away from home. hmmm.

"is this what you want"

"After searching around the internet, we have compiled a list of what you, the viewer, wants to see. So we ask you this, is this what you want?"
high-larious commentary on the state of the internet and what people (apparently) want from it. very, very not safe for work. mom, if you are out there, i recommend you just skip this one.

"pas de deux" by norm mclaren (1967)

this video was the first time that multiple exposure time-lapse animation was seen in film. although pretty mundane in todays world, this was a pretty revolutionary technique at the time. you could do this in like 2 minutes nowadays, but when this short was made, each exposure had to be laid down manually, one on top of the other, on top of the other, etc.,etc., to acheive the desired results. first time i saw this, the sound was muted and sades "cherish the day" was the soundtrack. it touched me. right here.

the burton sleeper hoodie

this is pretty dope. from burton snowboards, this hoodie is designed for plane travel, and more specifically for sleeping during plane travel.
the hoodie features a pull down eye shade and neck pillow integrated into the hood, a stash pocket with ear plugs, thumb holes in the cuff, armpit ventalation, and a inside breast pocket to keep your tickets and passport.
looks pretty cozy. couldnt find any info on the burton site, so i guess it isnt available just yet.

wildly over the top decorated bento

wow. someone has a little too much excess time and creativity on their hands...

emotiv- brain/computer interface

"Emotiv has created the first brain computer interface technology that can detect and process both human conscious thoughts and non-conscious emotions. The technology, which comprises a headset and a suite of applications, allows computers to differentiate between particular thoughts such as lifting an object or rotating it; detect and mimic a user’s expressions, such as a smile or wink; and respond to emotions such as excitement or calmness."
apparently emotiv is going to be attacking the market first through video game applications, which is pretty exciting, but for some reason i find it strange that the video game industry will be responsible for bringing this kind of technology to the forefront.
heres a demo of the system from the game developers conference, i think.

seems kind of sluggish, but pretty cool, huh?

teacher tube

teacher tube is an online video sharing site strictly for education themed media. lots of classroom how-tos, lesson plans and software insrtuctionals. the site just got up and running in january, so it still has some growing to do, but what a wonderful resource.

parents camping out for pre kindergarten registration

"These pictures may look like serious tail-gaters, people waiting for the latest gaming console or indie rock fans desperate for Sujan Stevens tickets, but, alas, no - these are actually taken from the parking lot of PS 236 in Mill Basin."

william fucking shatner

ha! will wheaton(the kid from star trek and stand by me) posted a story on his blog about the first time he met william shatner.

"If you're a longtime reader of my blog, you know that I refer to the first bald captain of the Enterprise as WILLIAM FUCKING SHATNER. The origin of this charming name was first published in my book Dancing Barefoot.
Because my "Star Trek: The Experience" story from Barefoot received such a positive response back in January, I'm going to share the WFS story for the first time online, in two parts."

the story is on the suicide girls site, where will is the "geek in review" writer, so it may not be sfw or whatever-
part 1
part 2

robert hodgin

i dont know wahat you would call this guy- video artist? experimental graphic designer? computer animator? genius? definitely genius, no doubt about that. apparently this guy has been responsible for a number of award winning advertisements and creative projects and blahblahblah. just watch-

for a massive treasure trove of his work and thoughts, and tons of larger scaled videos, check out his blog here- flight404.com

the girl behind the burqa

"Caitlin Dean was raised not to discriminate against others because of their race or religion. But as a white suburban teen of Italian and Irish descent, she often wondered what it would be like to be the target of such abuse."
She found out "behind the burqa."

a few of the 50 negative comments she reported on hearing during the course of 1 day in disguise-
"Hey, we rape your women!"
"I hope all of your people die"
"You're probably going to kill us all"
"Why do they let people like this in the country?"
