Funniest insult ever

The last one:

---------------

Other helpful Serbian phrases:

"The Pope fucks you" (Jebo te Papa)

"May your house be live on CNN" (Da bog da ti kuca bila na CNN-U)--this essentially means I hope NATO will bomb your house.

Not all their digs are quite so topical. The CNN-based insults only work against people whose homes haven't been bombed, which couldn't be more than a couple dozen.

That's why "Da bi te majka prepoznala u bureku" (Let your mother recognize you in a meat pie) and "Da Bog da ti zena rodila stonogu pa ceo zivot radio za cipele" (May your wife give birth to a centipede so you have to work for shoes all your life) are instant classics as well.

Two things you should know

Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products

Second: Road trip.

Apparently this guy rants a lot about the government and shit, its kind of funny. But he's been building this castle for over 40 years every day by hand. Not building by hand with friends. Not turning his pile of rocks into a castle. Not with his crane.
He picks up all the rocks from the side of the road.
He puts them in his little pickup with a winch. That he built himself.
He has a balcony that he built while hanging from a rope on the tower.

HES SIXTY FOUR YEARS OLD. HE DROPPED OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL.



Edit: There's also a place in colorado that you can go and wrestle alligators. Yup. Srsly.

Polyphasic Sleep

I want to try this during the summer when I have time, just out of pure curiosity. Supposedly you can train your body to go immediately into REM sleep cycle which is the most important part of the sleep cycle in which your brain gets the most rest.

" Of these[sleep stages], stage 5 REM sleep has been found to be the part of the cycle that provides the benefits of sleep for your mind."

The annoying part is you cant miss one of these 5 naps during the day and it takes a lot of discipline to accomplish but if done successfully you can have 22 hours of waking time which raises the question, what the hell would I do for 22 hours? I don't think I could survive for much long on this sleep schedule without going insane but its worth a try.

The link explaining it: http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/10/polyphasic-sleep/

at the end of the link he has posts following his progress experimenting with this sleep schedule.

Only reason to do this is if you can set your own schedule or work for yourself, which I do and would benefit from a possible of 22 hours a day of being awake.

"Okay, over the course of a normal 8-hour sleep, your body gets an accumulated 1.5 hours or so of REM sleep (deep, dreaming sleep). REM sleep is absolutely vital to your mind and body's condition and you will die without it; the other stages of sleep do little more than provide time for the body to rest and grow and heal. On that note, I would not suggest this schedule under any circumstances to someone under 18 or anyone sick with anything--you all need as much sleep as you can get."

QoS Game Intro



What do we think? I mean it's not MK12 but I thought it was cool, and the song sounded a lot more bond-y than the Keys/White one.

Go Speed Racer Go!

Ok that last post was meant for my other blog. Too lazy to fix.

This one though:

Who has seen Speed Racer and why the FUCK does everyone hate it so much? That movie blew my mind last night! It's as campy as the cartoon (which was awesome) and was insane with the visuals. The movie was just awesome all around.

I mean seriously, was the movie going public expecting a Batman Begins-esque reboot of Speed Racer? Of course its campy and colorful and unrealistic!

It's like... I WANT to enjoy Mirror's Edge, but every time the police show up in the game, I almost instantly stop having fun. Oh well. Chapter 3 and still no motivation to continue = time to send 'er back.
