Share NASA has sent a permanent orbiter to the planet Mercury. It’s name is MESSENGER. Every letter of that name means something, like it does in the Kabbalah. Make of that what you will. While zooming around Mercury, mapping the surface, and takingpictures, MESSENGER came across this guy in the image above. That spacecraft is [...]

Share Tosh.0Fnord Tosh.0 Videos,Daniel Tosh,Hate Speech I know that’s a strong title, but I stand by it. It’s just a girl choking on cupcakes, but the video is hilarious, and Daniel Tosh makes it funnier. Yes, I like Tosh.0. It’s mean, like me. Grrr.
ShareYou may, dear reader, remember when I first wrote of the Vengeance Dad meme. I discovered it while reading Know Your Meme, and it’s dark humor gave me a tummy full of giggle bubbles. Who doesn’t want to murder their family, am I right? (crickets… crickets…) Alright. Tough room. Well, I went back and revisited [...]

ShareXKCD may not send a search and rescue team to Plato’s Cave, but I volunteer to do some recon at Plato’s Retreat (pause for thunderous applause). Srsly, XKCD is such a wonderfully creative webcomic that they touch upon ontology as a punch line. They can also be charmingly crass, as evidenced below. In any case, [...]
Share The faithful believe Everything happens for a reason. The nonbelievers say Everything happens for no reason. They’re both wrong. Everything happens. That’s all. Everything happens all the time all through time. For every instant there are infinite sets of circumstance by which reality manifests. It’s like: Omnidirectional roulette wheel. Sea Foam Net of jewels [...]
Share Guitar god Jeff Beck is touring with Imelda Mey’s Irish rockabilly band, performing tributes to his youthful influences. Among the numbers he plays is this incredibly faithful rendition of Les Paul and Mary Ford’s How High The Moon. You can hear the original here. The video below is a live performance from Les Paul’s [...]
