Do you live in Mission Matsqui Fraser Canyon? It’s somewhere in BC, apparently. If you do you should vote for this guy, I think.

Hands down the stupidest idea in the history of stupid ideas

igun2

The NYPD is warning people not to buy this gun shaped iPhone case, and Amazon has reportedly stopped selling them.

Also, New York’s Oceans County Prosecutor’s Office posted this message on its Facebook page: “Please folks – this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officer’s job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation.”

I say leave it alone and let’s just see how things play out. What’s the worst that could happen?

World’s first robot wedding happens in Japan

Gay marriage is boring. Sure, it’s new in the U.S. but we’ve been doing that shiz in Canada for ten years.*

Here’s something interesting: a robot wedding! In Japan, if course.

This is Frois and Yukirin. They are robots and they are, I presume, in love. Or one of them needs the Japanese equivalent of a green card. It’s none of my business.

There was cake and dancing and kissing, apparently. I don’t know how they met or where they went for the honeymoon because nobody tells me anything. I wasn’t even invited.

In other news I think this means we’re one step closer to Robopocalypse.**

*I kid. It’s a big deal and it’s GOOD. INTERNET MOBS, DON’T MISUNDERSTAND ME AND ACCUSE ME OF BEING UNSUPPORTIVE OF GAY MARRIAGE AND START A CAMPAIGN TO RUIN MY LIFE AS YOU SEEM TO ENJOY DOING SO MUCH!!! I AM ACTUALLY REALLY SCARED OF YOU.

**The real one, not the movie, which will probably be released regardless of which robots get married and which I really wish Paul Verhoeven was directing. BUT AGAIN NOBODY ASKED ME WHAT I THOUGHT. Nobody ever asks me.


Bike lights look like balls

bike-balls
These bike lights look like balls. Why?

The creator, someone named Heather, writes on Bored Panda, “Our tagline is ‘it takes grit, wit, and balls to ride, so show em’ what you got’ – we believe in this and want cyclists to gain better visibility, while bringing a bit of humour to the commute, and diffusing any road tension between disgruntled drivers who don’t like to share the road. We’re encouraging cyclists to feel more confident, people will notice you and your glowing Bike Balls, and you will be safer because they see you!”

They launched a Kickstarter and made their target in three days.

Heather says, “Most people fall into two categories: the ‘Ball-Haters’ and the ‘Ball-Lovers.'”

I guess this proves there are a lot of ball lovers out there.

Lego classic rock bands

A guy named Adly Syairi Ramly has turned some Lego figures into rock bands. I bet these would sell, though I will admit that I thought Jimi Hendrix was Phil Lynott at first. There are more at Guitar Player.

Golden Girls LEGO set could be yours if you make it so

GoldenGirls1

 

I know of some people who will plotz at the sight of this.

You can help make it a reality by supporting it LEGO Ideas, where user Lostsleep writes:

“This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world.   It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space.  It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley.  It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.

“I have recreated many classic scenes from the show, including a visit from Burt Reynolds, Rose shooting Blanche’s Vase, Dorothy Playing “Grab That Dough” and Rose rescuing her Teddy Bear from a mean little girl.”

How to become gluten intolerant

This video is way over-long. And at first I thought the exaggeration for effect was overdone (YES, I thought it over exaggerated and that is totally not redundant here), but then I remembered the time I was at an event that actually had an abundance of food options for people’s various intolerances and proclivities and this woman made the biggest production over the fact that a knife that had been used on a with-gluten cake had touched a non-gluten cake. And, sure, maybe she had Celiac disease, but it’s funny, you know, because the one and only card-carrying Celiac person I actually know would NEVER behave that way.

ANYWAY.

Video.


A lizard holding a leaf like a guitar

Lizard-Playing-Guitar

This lizard was caught on camera holding a leaf life it’s a guitar by Indonesian photographer Aditya Permana.

Aditya said, “I did not directly photograph the lizard at first, until the lizards feel calm and comfortable around me. I noticed it looked like it was playing a guitar – and it didn’t move at all.”

He’s playing Its Not Easy Being Green, I bet.

Deep thoughts with Cookie Monster

My daughter has this singing Cookie Monster doll that won’t shut up after you press the talk button, which happens by accident all the time, like you step on it, or the cat lies down on it, or you take the talking box thing out and shove it in a drawer then you forget about it and shove something else into that same drawer in the middle of the night and SET OFF THE MOTHERFRAKKING COOKIE MONSTER AGAIN WAKING UP THE KID AND GODAMMITSOMUCH.

I hate that doll.

I might like it  a bit better if it said things like this. I said MIGHT. I’m not good at hypotheticals.
