Completely Sound and Logical

This has been making the rounds, but I couldn't pass it up, it's just too awesome. Here's the headline:

Scientist is Very Serious and Wants to Make a Dinosaur.

"Hans Larsson, the Canada Research Chair in Macro Evolution at Montreal's McGill University, said he aims to develop dinosaur traits that disappeared millions of years ago in birds."
"Larsson believes by flipping certain genetic levers during a chicken embryo's development, he can reproduce the dinosaur anatomy, he told AFP in an interview."
"Though still in its infancy, the research could eventually lead to hatching live prehistoric animals, but Larsson said there are no plans for that now, for ethical and practical reasons -- a dinosaur hatchery is "too large an enterprise." -

Larsen says he got the idea after talking to some dude who served as tech adviser for Jurassic Park the Movie.

Christmas just came early kids! I've already started building a jungle in my backyard for me and Laser to play in. Yes, I'm naming my dinosaur Laser because he's that awesome.

Just... Wrong

So, am I joking when I say that you can buy a wig for a cat? I wish I was.

Oh don't worry, these people are very serious. They even have a book that grandma is going to buy you for your birthday.

"Kitty Wigs® is a product of the feverish imagination of Julie Jackson & her siamese partner in crime, Boone (the cat). Then we met our match in Jill Johnson, official Kitty Wigs photographer, who is just crazy and stealth enough to catch cats in the act of daydreaming about their bewigged lives." -

Julie and Jill, thank you. Now we know that it can get worse.

Requirements For All Books

All books and anything readable should have these simple instructions.

Oh, no wonder I broke my legs, it's not a parachute at all!?

Reading has never been a strong passion of mine. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate and recognize it's importance and I know I would benefit greatly from reading, but really, I'd rather just do something else. It's pretty much been that way my whole life. Which is why this story I'm about to tell is funny.

One day I was at my friend's mother in law's house playing video games. We had probably just finished Free Bird on expert or shot a zombie in the head, because he killed our parents, I don't honestly remember but it's really not important. What's important is that while my friend was taking a turn, I looked at the coffee table and saw something that sent a flood of nostalgia out my mouth, "I LOVE THIS BOOK!" I exclaimed.
Stunned, my friend stopped playing because those mere words alone out of my mouth were enough to shock and maybe cause a little vomit from surprise. He turned around thinking, "WHAT! Chris loves a book!?"
There he saw me sitting in the easy chair holding "The Eleventh Hour". For those of you who don't know, it's a picture book.
Relieved the world hadn't ended, my friend continue blasting zombies, aliens, monsters, or whatever. True Story.

Adventure Time

Surfing Electric Guitar Penguins! This will only make sense if you watch it all the way through.

Pendleton Ward is the creator of this master piece. Turns out it was picked up to become a series. So basically the greatest cartoon ever is being made right now. The wait is anticipated.

Paintings I Wish I Had (pt.3)

It's that time again. I think I'm going to need a bigger gallery, not because of an immense need to store more paintings, but because I want each painting to be 6' x 12'.

Maybe ratings from the cadets would be appropriate?

That Annoying Kid That Drums The Desk In Class Just Got Worse

Yeah, I was one of those kids, and not only at school. I can remember being at my friends house for dinner and drumming at the dinner table, sending his mom into a state of agitated destruction. It seems the internet doesn't care about his mom too much because it has brought us this.

The Electronic Drum Kit Shirt, by

"So, how about an electronic t-shirt with a picture of an actual playable drum kit on the front? That's right. Hit the drums on this shirt with your finger and they play through the built in speaker... simple but amazing. With 7 different drum sounds you're ready for a personal drum solo on your chest."

What if I wore this shirt while making out with a girl? That would be too awesome. Probably better not then.

I Finally Get It

Chemistry was my least favorite class ever. Partly due to the fact that my teacher was obsessed with Pokemon cards and Everquest. He also look like a balding Weird Al Yankovic. Anyways, he tried to teach us some chemistry, but failed. No worries though, I found this.

Oh, now I get what you mean when H2O and Potassium don't mix.

In Russia They...

...use jet rockets to shovel the snow.

These, of course, are driven by Russian bear's who have been trained to blast anything that is white. So don't where you white snow pants to work on the morning after a huge snow storm.

"It's a snowblower. Or better said, a snow melter. The ones above use Klimov VK-1 engines from Mig-15 planes. The one from Tuesday could have been the engine from a Mig-17. They also use these to melt ice on other planes engines--while waiting on the cold Russian airport runways" - Gizmodo

I approve.

Only One Possible Answer

I've been thinking real hard about this one for a while. So I open the question to you. Who would win in a fight against a dinosaur?

Now, we've seen this one a few times. But still, I'm not convinced. There's no way King Kong was real so that battle in his movie doesn't count.

This next one has too many possibilities, but if we are sticking to real life, then the answer is pretty clear. Sorry Chuck.

Now here's something no one expected. I sure can't win a fight with the bed, it knocks me out every time I lay into it. But a dinosaur is much rowdier so there could be an inbalance there.

Please don't make me choose!

Hmm, I'm gonna have to check my sources on this one.

Yup, I think this is definitely the only correct answer. It makes sense in all levels of understanding.

New Work ID Badge

I got to work yesterday and my employee badge got me as far as the second set of stairs and then died on the battle field. It just stopped working and left me stuck in the stair well between the first and second floor. After waiting for 5 mins finally someone was able to let me out. I headed to HR to have a new badge reprinted as to allow me to continue my work day without fear of getting stuck. Each employee ID card has three things: A jungle backdrop, your name, and your picture. My default ID picture was taken about 5 years ago when I first started working for the company, so it was a little outdated and just plan not awesome at all. I needed to correct this. I need to awesomify it.

Here's the results of a little flirtatious persuasion with the HR girl.

Zombie Training Camp

The living dead, an army of almost unstoppable force. But how can a slow moving, undead monster be so good at what he/she does? Only by the traning camp there is. ZOMBIE BOOT CAMP!

Oh Japan, you're prepared for just about anything aren't you?
