You probably read the story already, but did you see the video? Tool using invertebrate powers, activate! (Watch through at least 1:05 to see him grip it by the husk).



Travel tip: Don't tell your Japanese co-workers that you don't eat Octopi because they're too smart. Neither the facts nor the humor will survive translation.

Why do I never get gifts like this? No wait, on second thought...

Historic curiosity, courtesy of Wikipedia: one of the primary synthetic replacements for ambergris in perfumery is thujone. Meaning that, while Victorian era ladies of high caliber painted themselves in extract of sperm whale vomit, the thoroughly modern woman now paints herself with extract of absinthe. Ah, the sweet smell of progress.

Video clip of David Bowie on Soul Train in **1975**.

Put another way, when this clip was originally on TV, I was 6, and Ford was in the White House.

You're welcome.

So five high school kids from West Philadelphia built a soybean (biodiesel) powered sports car that gets 50 MPG and still goes from 0-60 in 4 seconds.

Suck on THAT, Ford/GM/Honda/Toyota. Punked by a near-dropout named Cheesborough.

Ok, this video is both funny and harmless, which when you come right down to it is a rare thing these days.

This is a repost of someone on my FL that at least half of my readership does not know, and therefore would have missed, but I knew you'd like it. Yanked from [livejournal.com profile] megasus4 reposting some guy going by [livejournal.com profile] geoff_chaucer (and discovered by [livejournal.com profile] brannen):
