The Earth is Melting, Signs of global Warming

Say what you want but it’s getting hotter and it’s our fault. We’re driving around in cars and flying around in planes. We’re running refrigerators and air conditioners and erupting volcanoes left and right. Alright, we can’t really take credit for volcano eruptions, but all that other stuff is sort of within our grasp.  I […]

1 Super Feature in the New Facebook Pages

Facebook has just upgraded their pages layout and system to catch up with the recently rolled out profile layouts. You now have your recent photos along the top, the wall/info/photos/links/etc bit is now on the left-hand side underneath the picture- exactly like regular people pages. All of this will surely kick up a little shitstorm […]

Twitter for Android Updates to 2.0

After I installed this version of Firefox, the first thing I noticed was ALL my extensions were incompatible. This reminded me how much I actually depend on them- my […]

Cow Getting Extremely Butchered

We get our fair share of junk email at the office, like everybody we’re always eager to find great deals on v!4gr4!!! This time however, we received an email from some nut [you know who you are!] that had 20 or so images of a cow getting butchered. It’s not some amazing or strange thing […]

Bunch of Stupid or Funny Animated GIFs

Animated GIFs are usually really annoying, continuously looping, low quality animations- but admittedly there are a few funny ones out there. To save you the trouble, I’ve brought a bunch together for you. I don’t claim ownership over any of these. Nobody can. They have been circulating through forums by the immature and forwarded emails […]
