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.

I Hear Tell That Brad Loves To Go Swimmin' With Bow-Legged Wimmin

Remember the Oscars last weekend? Myself, I didn't watch them because about the only part I enjoy is when they show all the show biz folks who died over the past year. But anyway... apparently Angelina Jolie showed (quite) a bit of (one) leg during her presentation. And a fine leg it is! So why stop at one?

A few pics of the real deal, and one that answers the question, "What if Angelina had flashed both her gams?"
