This is creepy. And cool. It’s by Redditor/makeup artist SSSAMANTHAA
I have a wedding to emcee next week. Maybe I’ll get this done. Too much? How about if I go with a neutral shoe?

This is Colonel Meow. He’s just made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for being that cat with the longest fur. What an accomplishment!
I have long hair too. The plumber found a huge ball of it clogging our pipes yesterday. But nobody ever puts me in books of world records. Read about him at the Guinness site.
Check out these superneat Blade Runner action figures by Scott Pettersen.
Apparently, he’s just a fan who decided to make them for himself, and each one takes two to three months to make.
The faces are amazing, and the detail on the clothes is…er…also amazing. I’m tired.
Read all about Scott and his action figures over at Geek Exchange.
This is amusing,
A columnist for The Bold Italic (which I suppose should be in italics), Jessica Saia, took a bunch hairfarming dudes out to the stylist for some fancy updos.
Why? Well, “why not” should be enough, but Saia writes, “So many men spend years getting their manes all long and for what? To be occasionally bundled into a low ponytail? I’m not sure how ladies got to hoard all of hair’s styling potential when men can grow hair out of their faces.
“In an attempt to change the way we look at man locks, I took eight guys with long hair to Salon Miel to get fancy lady updos.”
It’s supposed to make you ask questions about gender and that sort of thing, like, why don’t guys get to wear skirts and cocktail dresses?
Does it work? Are you wondering why dudes don’t regularly get chignons and buns and pincurls?

Ever wonder who’s more cognitively impaired, the drunk guy or the stoned dude? This guy got farked up both ways and tried out a bunch of stuff like dancing and making phone calls. The results will be obvious to those of us who know both drunks and stoners.

Check it out. Pornhub has shared the top three search terms for triple X material by state and created a nifty map.
It’s not the first such map I’ve seen.
I wrote a blurb a few months ago about another map, on PornMD, that does the same thing. (I don’t know if it ever got published because it was for a magazine that has since declared bankruptcy while owing me thousands, which I’ll never see because who can deal with all that legal crap when you’ve just had a baby? It really ticked me off. Bastards. ANYWAY…)
They’re not identical. First of all, Pornhub doesn’t include Canada, while PornMD informs us that we like to search for “asian,” “teen” and “MILF.”
There are similarities, though, such as New Yorkers searching for “Milf” and either “teen” or “college,” but one map showed Kentuckians searching first for “free gay porn” while this is totally absent from the other. At least Kansasians (Kansites? Kansish?) always like their “creampie.”
Pornhub also shows who’s watching how much. Mississippi is hands down watching the most.
Check out both maps:

Somewhere out there is a video of me winning an Air Guitar championship in 2000. No, really. It was in Montreal and it was called the Canadian Air Guitar Championship – so I assume either they didn’t know about the actual World Air Guitar Championship, of which this was not a part and which probably includes a Canadian Championship, or it didn’t exist yet.
Whatever the case, the sport, if I may call it a sport, has come a long way since then, kind of like how figure skating at the Olympics is way more difficult now than it was in 1984 when Katarina Witt won the gold after shocking everyone with her crazy controversial outfits and rock music. There’s no way I could compete against these guys.
Here’s video of this year’s champ, Eric “Mean Melin” Melin, of the United States (no, that’s not Dave Grohl), and some pics of the other finalists. The championships are held each year in Oulu, Finland.

One has to assume this farmer in the netherlands is raising these pigs for the only reason anyone ever raises pigs (insert bacon joke here), but at least they’re having fun in the meantime.
It’s sad and nice at the same time, and a sight for sore eyes after all those horrible pictures of pigs in tiny cages that have been circulating on Facebook.
Scientists claim to have invented hangover free beer.
See, the reason you get a hangover is because you get dehydrated. So some nutrition researchers at the Griffith Health Institute (GHI) have found that you can make beer more hydrating “without killing its taste,” which results in no hangover.
Associate Professor Ben Desbrow from GHI’s Centre for Health Practice Innovation said,
“We basically manipulated the electrolyte levels of two commercial beers, one regular strength and one light beer and gave it to research subjects who’d just lost a significant amount of sweat by exercising. We then used several measures to monitor the participant’s fluid recovery to the different beers.
“Of the four different beers the subjects consumed, our augmented light beer was by far the most well retained by the body, meaning it was the most effective at rehydrating the subjects.”
The electrolyte light beer was a third more effective at hydrating than normal beer, says news-medical.net.
So, it’s light beer. Loses a little of the appeal there. But maybe you like that sort of thing .
I love this. Twenty-six musical genres in one song, in alphabetical order.
And I learned new genres, like Xoomi (A type of Tuvan throat singing) and Zouk (“a fast tempo carnival style of music originating from the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, popularized by the French Antilles kassav in the 1980s,” says Wikipedia.)
Here are the lyrics to the song, worth the price of admission, right there:
oh my god!
my bleeding heart bleeds blood for you, woah, woah
traveling down this lonely road, woah
facing my hurt, hurting my face, yeah yeah yeah
i chainsaw your face off, watching your brains rotting, kid
drain your veins raw, straining your esophagus
위하여, 음악에 미친 널 [we-hah-yeo, umage michin null]
위하여, 술잔에 비친 널 [we-hah-yeo suljane bichin null]
[translation: “cheers to you who are crazy for the music! / cheers to you who are reflected on the (wine) glass!”]
finding the truth
take it back
finding the truth
as we fight to the death
il mio amore è corrisposto
we all dance to the polka
for it is so fun
still dancing to the polka
with my accordion
love is everywhere
smoke is in the air
pick it up, pick it up!
oi! oi! oi! oi!
pick it up, pick it up, pick it up, pick it up!
oi! oi! oi! oi!
a to z, z, z
a to z, z, z
a to z
as we cross the open seas
twoards the call of war
our axes we’ll free
guided by the hand of thor
yeah yeah yeah
and our love will never end
