  • Here’s Waldo: Foolproof Strategy For Finding The Missing Man

    Every kid has spent hours and hours trying to find the striped shirt wearing, bespectacled Waldo in books purchased at the annual Scholastic Book Fair (along with cool shaped pencil erasers and Cal Ripken, Jr posters, of course). Well it ends up we were all wasting our time. After hours of research, Slate developed a method based upon where Waldo is usually found and put it to the test versus the common, frustrating method of just scanning the page and getting tricked again and again because for some reason, everyone in the Waldo universe wears red and white stripes. Their strategy won out.

  • GTA V Inspired Texting And Driving PSA [Video]

Titled “Wheelman”, the ad was the result of a contest inviting people between the ages of 15 and 25 to come up with a short movie idea that would appeal to the youth of Ireland. Winner Rory Nestor came up with the idea of a Grand Theft Auto scenario that apparently teaches you that high speed gunfights won’t kill you, but using your phone while driving will certainly end in disaster.

  • The 10 Biggest Blockbuster Sports Deals of 2013

    With each passing year, there is one thing that is guaranteed in sports; massive amounts of money will be spent. Whether on a team-seeking superstar, who can bring a franchise’s championship aspirations to fruition or by a wealthy entrepreneur taking new ownership of a club, money is required to make either of the aforementioned transactions.

  • World’s Tallest Waterslide Gives You A Reason To Go To Kansas

    The world’s tallest waterslide is currently under construction at Schlitterbahn, a Kansas City waterpark. The Verruckt Meg-A-Blaster slide, set to open May 23rd of next year, will send you down its 140 foot drop at 65 miles per hour in a four person raft. Hopefully there will be higher sides added before construction is complete. Also, I’m no physicist, but it looks like that hump will send you flying into Missouri. Good news for the people of Kansas City: There will probably be some full time positions opening up at the Schlitterbahn cleaning the rafts after people schlitter their pants. 

  • Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boot

    Nike’s LunarENDOR QS snowboard boot is definitely the only of it’s kind. Let’s get started with the most obvious feature, the LA Gear style LED swoosh. Made up of thirty LED lights and powered by an embedded lithium ion battery, and it’s on/off switch is conveniently located atop the boot’s cuff, so you can go all Clark Griswald at the touch of a button.

Nike’s signature Lunar foam is more responsive and absorbs a good amount of impact on jumps. A 3-D molded upper and a Nike Flywire inner lacing system further enhance fit.

  • Watch Kanye West’s Bizarre Bound 2 Video

    Self-proclaimed “creative genius” Kanye West has unleashed his greatest turd upon the world with his new video for Bound 2, featuring fiance Kim Kardashian. Oh yeah, and she’s naked. Miss Kardashian turns in her greatest acting performance yet, managing to show slightly more interest and excitement than she did in her role as a corpse in her sex tape with Ray J. There is plenty of overly saturated time-lapse photography to look at in the background when you get bored with the simulated sex atop a motorcycle. The romantic lyrics are what save the production, though. “I wanna f– you hard on the sink/After that give you something to drink/Step back, can’t get spunk on the mink”. Creative genius, indeed.

    Ever get bored with staring at that same old dull moon day after day and wonder what it would be like if the planets were that close instead? Well check out this awesome video made by YouTube user yetipc1 where he does all the work for us. I’d be cool with most of the planets at such close proximity, but Saturn and Jupiter would both be a bit jarring. Of course, there probably wouldn’t be much sunlight to actually see them if they were that close, anyway.

  • Bob Dylan Releases Interactive Music Video And CD Box Set

    Almost 50 years after being release, one of Bob Dylan’s best known songs, “Like A Rolling Stone”, has received the music video treatment. It’s an interactive video that features such celebrities as Drew Carey, Danny Brown, Marc Maron, and the “Pawn Stars” family lip syncing to the song on different channels that you can switch between while the video is playing. It’s a cool idea and no doubt you’re better off watching these people lip sync than going to an actual Bob Dylan performance these days and watching him incoherently fumble through his set. The video is in celebration of the release of his 47-disc “Complete Album Collection Volume 1″. Volume 1? Really? 47 discs and just volume 1? You hi-tech types can also get the collection on a USB drive with a bonus harmonica case!

  • Parents Stage Dino-vember for their Kids at night. Immediately Win Parents of the Year Award

    In a world where prepping five-year-olds with tablets before school reigns the norm, Refe and Susan Tuma, parents-of-the-year gave their children a sense of tangible wonderment a digital world. Every December the Tuma’s release their inner artist by setting up toy dinosaurs embarking on adventures, making a mess of the kitchen and even having painting class while their children are asleep. “We wanted to help them see the real world with sense of wonderment.” says Refe a writer and editor in the Kansas City area. “They play with the scenes we’ve created, and it lasts for hours before they get tired,” Dinovember also helps Parents to be creative and push their own efforts to the limit, because kids these days wise up quickly, so pushing the envelope like spray painting walls or decimating the environments parents teach their kids to keep clean are methods the Tuma’s use to throw off their children’s skeptical speculation.

  • English Has a New Preposition, Because Internet

    “Because” has always been a subordinating conjunction and nothing more. It served its purpose and did it well. But now, thanks to internet-speak, “because” has taken on a new life as a preposition, just like in the title above. Read all about the transition and see a ton of examples at The Atlantic and then bring up the subject with your grammar Nazi friends, who will undoubtedly dismiss you as an imbecile. Because pomposity.

  • Rob Ford Soundboard

  • Brooklyn-The Gentleman’s Rant [Video]

    Warning Brooklynites: Hold on to your vintage typewriter and try not to choke on your Fernet cocktail while you watch this rant on your beloved borough. To be fair, these complaints only apply to a small fraction of Brooklyn. Go to neighborhoods like Flatbush, or East New York, or Coney Island and your complaints will be very different. Still, the no credit card thing is a major pain. Every time you use the shady ATM you lose $5 while gaining a chance at identity fraud. At least the free pizza at Alligator Lounge almost makes up for having to sit next to a dude with a monocle whose unicycle is chained up out front.

  • Man Meal: Bourbon Glazed Holiday Ham
