Why I Hate Koalas
Afternoon watch, 7 bells (3:57 pm)

I've hated koalas for years. People say they're cute and fuzzy, but they're disgusting creatures. Just watch this, and enjoy the MST3K commentary with it.


If you have the National Geographic Channel (unlike me, who cut the cable years ago), they're having RiffTrax (MST3K) over on April Fool's Day.

Creepy place for free hugs

I for one would take that chance.

(Thanks to Eric Trueheart for posting this picture where I could see it!)

LED Throwie Rat
Afternoon watch, 2 bells (1:22 pm)

I like the idea of LED throwies: a small battery, magnet, and an LED taped together. The light is on until the battery runs down (takes a while with an LED), and the magnet lets it stick to something so you can throw it up high.

But the LED Throwie Rat takes the cake! It uses the same principles, but instead of tape to hold everything together it uses a taxidermied rat!

I can't get a picture out of my head of someone trying to figure out how to take one down from an overhead freeway sign.

An Awful Vision

I just had an awful vision of a horrible, doomed future where Google leaves Sesame Street 40th Anniversary images up all year long like a Disneyland anniversary. *shudder*!

Best Time of the Year

To whack somebody, that is: Dead man on balcony ignored.

A 75-year-old dead man sat decomposing on his Marina del Rey balcony for days because neighbors thought the body was part of a Halloween display and didn’t call police.

I'll just file that away as useful information if I ever flip out and need to hide a body—do it around Halloween!

Like a Shotgun Blast

If you're easily grossed out, you should skip this post…you have been warned.

I had a bathroom gross-out moment earlier today. Somehow, someone pooped on the back rim of the toilet. I don't know how they got it there with the seat down unless it came out like shotgun shot. I mean seriously, how do you do that?? I had to go use the other bathroom. Nasty.

Today I heard what I imagine will be the funniest thing I'll hear this month, at least.

I wish my lawn was emo, that way it would cut itself

What better way to get a leg up on the world than to sell cat feces to foreigners for over $100 per pound.

What scares me more is that people actually buy and drink this sh!t crap stuff.

Yesterday I snapped a good one of some snowy trees:

I took some pictures last night as I was leaving the office to see how my new camera does in low-light conditions. See for yourself:

Snowy path

But wait! What is that in the center?? Can it be? It looks like—oh no!
maybe bigfoot?

Nasty Accident
Posted in Creepiness
First watch, 3 bells (9:44 pm)

On our way back from the Beermans, driving along Farm Road 1960 in Humble TX we hit some bad traffic, with tons of police cruisers with their lights on blocking the road. Turns out there was a really bad accident, some poor dude on a motorcycle bought the farm. Other than that, I have no details about what happened. I just saw the body covered in a white sheet.

It's a terrible thing to joke about, but that's how some people (like me) deal with things like this. I said something to the effect of That's something nobody wants to do just before Christmas. At least on accident."
