The Joys of Drunk Ewoks

Sure, it's starts innocently enough, but once the Ewoks start drinking, all bets are off.

What is this?

I saw this on XKCD:

We did not invent the algorithm. The algorithm consistently finds Jesus. The algorithm killed Jeeves.
The algorithm is banned in China. The algorithm is from Jersey. The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.
This is not the algorithm. This is close.

What is it? I can see that it is very small.

College Quidditch

Did y'all know about this and were keeping it from me?

Apparently, there is Intercollegiate Quidditch, with a World Cup and everything. They run around with brooms between their legs. The snitch is a person, who runs around like crazy trying not to let anyone steal the ball hanging in a sack from his bum.

For real.

Geek sports really do exist, though I guess Warner Bros. is keeping them from turning pro.

Red String

I know that you've been asking yourself, "Where's the online romance comic? The kind where the story is the focus and not the humor? It's all the interblogs are missing!"

Ask no more, I present you with Red String.

From the FAQ:
Your comic isn’t manga!! Why do you draw “manga-style”? Why did you set it in Japan?
Nope, it’s a comic book series. As an American I create comics, not manga. Red String does not claim to be anything else. My art is influenced by many different artists and writers, both American and Japanese. My work reflects those influences. As for why I set my story in Japan, as an author, I find that if something interests me, I want to write about it. I am interested in Japanese culture. I have tried my best to write a tale as accurate as possible to the traditions and nuances of the culture. However, this story was primarily written for an American audience by an American author, so pacing and style will obviously be different from Japanese manga.

Here's where the first chapter starts.

No, I can't translate it.

Fuck You Cat

Cats think they're so damn smart. They don't fool me. I'm a human and I'm smarter than any cat.

I was told about another blog, probably the prototype for the preceding blog:

Even Better.

Which is Real?

From Reuters:
Luigi Garlaschelli, a professor of organic chemistry at the University of Pavia, reproduced the full-sized [Shroud of Turin] using materials and techniques that were available in the middle ages.

I wish Reuters said how he made it because I want to make one, too.


Found it:
They placed a linen sheet flat over a volunteer and then rubbed it with a pigment containing traces of acid. A mask was used for the face.


The pigment was then artificially aged by heating the cloth in an oven and washing it, a process which removed it from the surface but left a fuzzy, half-tone image similar to that on the Shroud. He believes the pigment on the original Shroud faded naturally over the centuries.

They then added blood stains, burn holes, scorches and water stains to achieve the final effect.

World of WTF?!? Wedding Edition.

I've just recently discovered it. It is vast. It is full of awesome, creepy, and tacky, all with a healthy dose of WTF on top. The above photo? Oh, that's just the "tiny bride" photo trend. Observe this Hello Kitty wedding in Japan - you only need to watch the 1st minute. See the boutonniere on the groom and the bride's necklace?

Holy Sh*t.

"'That was its fate,' he explained."

From the blog of Paul Pope, where you'll find the rest of the page:
I wanted to try applying the lessons learned from the Wednesday Comics experience to a different subject ... I find that with the format of Wednesday Comics ..., one must condense the plot and action to the briefest yet most vivid bursts of information available ... The Wednesday Comics single page format forces the artist to create a story unit which may well be part of a larger storyline, however it still must be able to stand alone.
And no, I don't think there's going to be an awesome Dune comic written and drawn by Mr. Pope, although I wish there were.

It's the reason humans do anything.

Did Early Humans Start Walking for Sex?
The big news in the journal Science tomorrow is the discovery of the oldest human skeleton—a small-brained, 110-pound female of the species Ardipithecus ramidus, nicknamed “Ardi.” She lived in what is now Ethiopia 4.4 million years ago, which makes her over a million years older than the famous “Lucy” fossil, found in the same region thirty-five years ago.

Buried among the slew of papers about the new find is one about the creature’s sex life. It makes fascinating reading, especially if you like learning why human females don’t know when they are ovulating, and men lack the clacker-sized testicles and bristly penises sported by chimpanzees.
