Weird Or Cool?

WETA Workshop (of Lord of the Rings fame) turns a legless woman into a mermaid (sort of).

You gotta love random stories like these. I never know whether I think they are cool or just plain weird. The part of me that thinks it is cool is the part that likes unique creations and explorations in art and science. The other part is the one that wonders why on Earth this woman wanted to be a mermaid so badly. That is a little creepy. Anyway, weird or not, I'm glad that WETA was able to help her fulfill that dream.

Pride And Prejudice And... Zombies!

This has been cracking me up for the past few minutes (since I saw the link my cousin Ken put up on our family website). If anyone ends up reading it, please let me know.

My favorite part? The Biography:


JANE AUSTEN is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature.

SETH GRAHAME-SMITH once took a class in English literature. He lives in Los Angeles."

The Wisdom Of Bilbo

I am not a financially intellectual being. I can't really vouch for all or any of these principles more than to say that they all seem good to me. What I really liked was that an economist used The Hobbit as source material for his article. If nothing else, it is a fun read to see Tolkien referenced in this way.

Check-a-check-a-check it out.

A Wizard Amongst Us

Man, I am so confused and outraged at what Obama has done/is doing right now. This was the guy that tons of conservatives voted for because he was the one who seemed the most likely to be able to unite the nation and bring us together. Bull. He has not done a single thing to make conservative values seem even slightly valid, let alone extend a hand of fellowship. I fear greatly for our nation.

Something Fun For My Peeps

I liked this little comic and thought I'd share it with you guys.

Right after posting this I found this little video of our incredibly intelligent Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi making a brilliant statement about the dangers of not rushing into getting this stimulus package passed. Wow. That was a strange sentence.

Yes, you heard it folks. She DID in fact warn us that every month that goes by without the passing of this bill, 500 MILLION Americans (will) lose their jobs. Here is a link to Glenn Beck making fun of her (I certainly found it funny, but then I really can't stand that woman so I'm probably biased).

Stolen Pixels

Stolen Pixels is the new webcomic project of the man I was just telling you guys about, Shamus Young. The idea behind it is that he "steals" screen shots from video games and turns them into comics.
Here is today's comic, which is also Wii Fit related.
