I'd Probably Lose It If It Wasn't Attached

Like cicadas wriggling out of the ground at the end of their mysterious 17-year cycle, or someone saying "Bloody Mary" or "Beetlejuice" for the third time, this scrappy underdog of a blog has returned in an equally (un)welcome fashion. For one day only.

Information Nation has been "off the air" for 8+ years at this point, and despite what you may have heard, it's going to stay that way. As long as it's still reachable, you are welcome to peruse the 1,945 previous entries in this dumb pile of electrons I typed out for you all those years ago.

In order to mollify my rabid fanbase clamoring for new content (one guy can too count as a fanbase shut up), I am willing to log back onto the hallowed server to release this one-time-only post. 

From that Nonstop Hit Factory Formerly Known As King Missile, please enjoy their finest opus.

Can't. Look. Away.

Release The Balls

Kinetic sculpture "The Octapult" uses 8 synchronized catapults in which 160 plastic balls per minute are launched, caught, and recirculated. (via PopGive)

It reminds me a bit of Animusic, the computer-generated animation series of fantastical, complex self-playing musical instruments. Specifically, it makes me think of "Pipe Dream" as seen below.

Suspect Is Considered Armed And Delicious

Tumblr user Rusty Redenbacher has started a campaign for people to send bags of Skittles to the Sanford Police Department.

And here's their mission statement:

Do These Shoes Make My Feet Look Big?

Easy now, easy... Just hold it together, man! I'll just sit here quietly and try not to attract any attention. Just blend in... (via The daily What)

You Put Too Many Monopoly Houses In The Guacamole

I've posted on the surreal-yet-charming animations by PES, the nom de guerre of Adam Pesapane on a couple of occasions previously (here, and here). The new one, "Fresh Guacamole" is making me a bit peckish for, of all things, dice and light bulbs.

Beware, all you Amateur Corn Parers. Beware...

Really, if you're not ready to bring your "A" Corn-Paring-Game to the Pro Circuit, then don't even bother, pal. You come into this sport unprepared and that Old Gray Specter of Infection is gonna take your lunch every time.

Every. Damn. Time.
