Best. Comic. EVER.

I love Calvin and Hobbes, and one of my favorite parts is the snowmen. Obviously I'm not the only one. Enjoy.

Optimus Prime is Jewish??

The Mecha from  Wasilla.jpg

A man from Wasilla, located deep in the heart of who-knows-where, is building a thing of beauty. A beast of steel and hydralics, inspired by the most worthy of 80's TV shows, The Transformers. This man knows what he's talking about, as the following quote clearly illustrates:

You've got to have flame-throwers!

Truer words were never spoken.

Yet another reason to never shop at Wal*Mart.

Retention

Today's topic: companies that suck. Not just any kind of suck, mind you, I've got a specific category in mind.

Great Movie

Best movie $6 can get you at Best Buy? Way of the Gun. This movie is fantastic, and I'll tell you why.

  • Fifteen million dollars is not money. It's a motive with a universal adaptor on it.
  • I promise you a day of reckoning that you won't live long enough to never forget.
  • You know what I'm gonna tell God when I see him? I'm gonna tell him I was framed.

There are more, many more. Watch it already.

Exploded 12 pack in a freezer

A very important property of water is the fact that, unlike most substances, it actually expands as it gets colder. As a result, ice floats, lakes don't freeze all the way to the bottom, and aquatic life prospers in cold climates. Also, Coke explodes in freezers. You have been warned.

Frozen exhaust on the back of a car

And, as long as we're talking about cold, here's my car. See that white frost on it? It was cold enough yesterday that the water in my exhaust froze to the back of my car. After over four hours of driving, it looked like this.

UPDATE: I'm not the only one. Zero Tolerance posts about DIY distilling.

A Pun a Day

My parents have an electronic thermometer at their house. It's not really designed for extreme cold so it displays an error when the temp drops too far. This led to the following exchange:

Mom: Looks like it's 0 F.L out there.

Dad: Awful?

It's in the genes...

Why do I love Penny Arcade? Little bits like this:

I'm absolutely surrounded by Mikes pretty much all the time, they're closing in, and one of them asked me if I was familiar with The Order of the Stick. Me. Asked me if I knew about it. Motherfucker, my balls have twenty sides. Nothing escapes my gaze. Don't get in my face with your tabletop trivia unless you want to save for half.

Makes no sense to you, correct? Don't worry about it, it's hilarious.

The Dark Side

I think I'm in lust.

Aye, Aye, Cap'n!

There is no statement so inane that I will not utter it.

There is no question that I cannot repeat back to you with minimal rephrasing.

There is no declaration that I cannot reply to with a question that is directly answered by your declaration.

I am Captain Obvious, and I will CRUSH your conversation!

For the sake of posting something, since I've been delinquent in my duties, here's a pic from Hartley Park, taken a couple months ago.

I'll Take This Weekend on the Rocks

Pic of the Ice Tree

Well, I survived the drive home last week. The ice storm wasn't too exciting, but the blizzard this weekend was something to see. Despite the no travel advisory, MrAirbear and I were out driving around Saturday night. In my book, any snowstorm with thunder and lightning was a good snowstorm, and this was too good to miss. Short lived, however. More ice pictures from Pete.
