The discovery of rollerblade clogs finally killed off string theory

While most people currently believe in the heliocentric model of the universe, it is nice to see that not only scientists, but an entire scientific field can take rub on some youth serum and turn back the clock a few centuries.  For those who are interested in the geocentric model, you may want to check out the Galileo Was Wrong conference, in Indiana.

Me?  I know that the universe actually revolves around Mike’s balls, which are made out of a particularly rare depleted radioactive material.  Just a tablespoon of it weighs… alot.  This is what the universe actually looks like, to scale:

My love/hate relationship with Muammar el-Qaddafi

This guy is fucking crazy – lets talk about it:

  1. Love – nobody can even fucking agree how to spell his name.  You will see it either spelled Qaddafi or Gadafi, with el or al in front.  If you want to be a good dictator, you gotta keep people guessing
  2. Hate – guy is clearly an asshole.  We know pretty much for sure he helped support the <a href=”″>Lockerbie bombing</a>, which killed 243 people.
  3. Love – what type of terrorist dictator has the flavor of this guy?  Dude is always rocking proper shades and a Jheri curl.  Usually with some crazy ass bathrobe to boot:
  4. Does Quadaffi have to smack a bitch?

    Yesterday, he was rocking the M-frames.

    Seriously - I couldn't get away with this shit on Halloween.

  5. Love – Dude was in the running for “closest thing on earth to the living dead”.  Everyone in the free world keeps waiting for him to die but it just doesn’t happen.  Other competitors were Kieth Richards, Ronald McDonald, and Michael Jackson.  Then MJ went ahead and took the prize – I hope you understand MJ is still alive and well hanging out in the Wall-Mart parking lot.  But I digress:

    Don't shake too hard - arm may detach.

  6. Hate – he just titled himself a Colonel.  If you are a dictator, much more fitting to declare onself the “supreme leader,” at the very least.

I’d rather hang out with the spider.

Disclaimer – No I do not like the Misfits.  What the hell were you thinking?

Batman, the dark knight vs. Batman, Turkey

Batman, the dark knight:

From Wikipedia:

In the original version of the story and the vast majority of subsequent retellings, Batman’s secret identity is Bruce Wayne, a billionaire playboy, industrialist, and philanthropist. Having witnessed the murder of his parents as a child, Bruce trains himself both physically and intellectually and dons a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Batman operates in the fictional American Gotham City…

Batman, Turkey:

From AllAboutTurkey:

One of the southeastern Anatolian cities, Batman is a little province which takes its name from the river flowing on its west. The Batman river, spanned by the old Malabadi Bridge, draws the province’s border with Diyarbakir, and then joins Tigris (Dicle) River passing through the land. The southeastern extensions of the Taurus Mountains on the other hand, stand on the eastern side of the region, together with the 1288 m high Raman Mountain. Here is one of the main crude oil production centers of Turkey, and the refinery at Batman was the first founded one in the country.

The history of the province reaches back to antiquity, and the land saw numerous dynasties throughout its long history. Experiencing Arab invasion around 700 AD, Batman was later dominated by Seljuks first and then by the Mongolians. It was annexed by the Ottoman Empire in 1514 after being under the influence of the Akkoyunlu and the Safevid throughout the 15th century.

And most interestingly, Batman, Turkey sues DC over Batman the movie (from el Reg):

“There is only one Batman in the world,” Kalkan said. “The American producers used the name of our city without informing us.”

He also hopes to pin a number of unsolved murders along with the town’s female suicide rate on the psychological impact the film’s success had on Batman residence, the publication said.

Makes sense.


The calculus of perverts… and cereal

Just found out where snap, crackle, and pop come from.

Snatch Jerk and Tug

They are all derivatives of increasing order, they go like this in order:

  • x: position
  • dx/dt: velocity
  • d^2x/dt^2: acceleration
  • d^3x/dt^3: jerk
  • d^4x/dt^4: snap
  • d^5x/dt^5: crackle
  • d^6x/dt^6: pop

Now, when you pull mass into the equation:

  • velocity * mass = momentum
  • acceleration * mass = force
  • jerk * mass = yank (so maybe we should say yank off?)
  • snap * mass = tug
  • crackle * mass = Snatch
  • pop * mass = shake

Association Win

I know this is beating an undead zombie horse… to death, but this is good:
