We’ve been down this road before, first with Billionaire Alki David farting on the red carpet and all but high-fiving the girls flanking him. But Oscar Winning Acress and fan of spicy foods, Whoopi Goldberg may have just one upped David.
She let out a fart that was not only more pronounced than David’s, it was on live TV in front of viewers that may be more sensitive to farts than most crowds (now if she was on Hollywood Squares…)
It happened Friday Morning on The View (technically it began with whatever she ate on Thursday night) when Whoopi let one go while interviewing Claire Danes. The video speaks for itself, but pay close attention to Danes reaction to the fart, jumping up like the fire alarm went off (maybe it did?) Keep Reading
We know developer Rovio is trying to capitalize as much as possible on its little iOS franchise known as Angry Birds. First the developer made plans to open a retail shop dedicated to pushing Angry Birds merchandise, and an animation studio for Angry Birds cartoons. This was shortly after announcing the half a billion downloads milestone.
We’ve seen some record shattering game sales and some even better advancements in the way we play video games.
But who can forget the events that were splattered in between it all. From Occupy Wall Street to protestors taking out Gaddhafi, the year was certainly momentous. What better way to capture it than through one of the most timeless toys in the history of man-kind?
Check out a sample of the full flickr album for some of the best moments of 2011 in lego form.

For those of you thinking Dartz was referring to the anime character, I regret to inform you that in the case of this article, it refers to the Estonian based armored vehicle maker Dartz, “the world’s most luxurious and expensive armored SUV company.”
While you’d have to think armored, luxury vehicles are a specific enough niche as it is, Dartz is launching an electric version of its Mojo Two-Seater that targets the safety conscious, yet green individual.
Jo-Mojo will have an 80 horse-power electric motor with 90 lb-ft (122 Nm) of torque, Keep Reading
Travelling at a thousand feet per second, a cannonball went sailing into a small California town north of San Fransicso when a myth-busters experiment went south.
Puncturing walls, bouncing off car lanes, and going through roofs, this is one experiment that busted more than just a myth. As the video below explains, some people woke to find that the crashing sounds they heard weren’t thunder, but were indeed something else.
One man found something surprising when he came out to his mini-van:
I looked inside…and there was a cannonball…about 5 to 10 inches.
If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Keep Reading
But by trade Byrne is a carpenter who obviously needs his opposable thumbs to lay down the rug. But after an accident that cost him his most important finger not named the middle, he had to make a choice: be stuck as that guy who shakes four of your fingers instead of five, or replace the thumb with something else…
His big toe. Keep Reading
So fellas if you’re not dating a gaming girl already, here are a few reasons to maybe make sure your next girlfriend is a gamer:
According to a recent GameHouse infographic/survey, girl gamers are a lot more happy, social, and sexually/physically active than non-gaming girls.
The infographic, which was originally published in Venturebeat, also shows that most use online gaming as a way to relieve stress, while others to connect with friends and socially interact. Keep Reading
Ever wonder how video-game Mario would navigate the bathtub in your house, or the laundry basket? A slippery staircase? Neither did we, but auteur animators Marcus and Hannes Knutsson have animated a 16-bit Mario caught in the perils of household items.
All the usual suspects (The goombas, the Koopatroopers) are there, and like Mario, made entirely from beads. But it’s nice touches, like how the Knutssons went to extensive lengths to place the piranha plants in actual real-life plant pots, flames come out of stovetop cookers, and have Mario get distracted with a 3DS game starring himself that make it kind of awesome.

Etch-A-Sketch is often thought stone-age relic, but have the MacGyver-like skills of a certain YouTube user disproved that notion? Could rigging an old school NES controller to the toy enable one to more easily compete in the beautiful but small world of Etch a Sketch artists?
Judging by his elaborate rigging — which features an arduino microcontroller, hooked up to a stepper motor control board, which themselves are hooked up to the knobs — the idea is that one would have an easier time simply using the NES control pad to guide your way onto doing the next masterpiece (or just drawing vaguely suggestive pictures).

Redditor and art teacher cheeseboyhalpert (we’re assuming that’s not what his students call him) has posted quite an incredible hand drawn portrait of Steve Jobs. The portrait was done using only descriptive words, a technique Halpert plans on teaching his students and also explains in detail in the description below.
As for the portrait, he apologizes that his handwriting became sloppy throughout the process, but promises the entire thing is made up of only handwritten words. The words used include: Steve Jobs, Business, Visionary, Success, CEO, Apple, Macintosh, iPhone, iPad, Pixar, iPod, Multimedia, California, Innovation, Marketing, iTunes, Network, SteveJobsFinger, and SteveJobsRing Keep Reading
UK-based Captive Media might have just launched the world’s first urine-controlled video game with their custom urinal-integrated consoles now installed in the Exhibit Bar in Balham, South London.

Little Vector’s parents loved the Portal games so much, they decided to design every foot of his bedroom after Valve’s best-selling sci-fi game. That means Portal plush power balls, Portal panels, a (somewhat comfortable-looking) cot, and a familiar friend watching from a wall and to make sure little Vec does his homework.
Even the kid’s toilet has an Aperture insignia on it. It’s not really known for certain that the kid loves Portal as much as his parents do; between the serial killer-like scribblings on the wall and a hand-crafted (and pretty convincing) GladOs always watching you, does anyone get vague vibes of Big Brother watching you Keep Reading
But the Mayans were never privy to “Black Friday”, a more modern symbol that man-kind is expediting the disaster process. We don’t need the tedium of Cosmology to predict the world might be coming to a close, these videos below put any asteroid, disease, famine, or alien life form to shame.
For those of you who may have been busy on more important matters, like sleeping, and missed out on Black Friday, here are some of the biggest fails which encompass why Keep Reading

Apple is no stranger to new businesses, whether it’s taking over the music industry, putting Sony and Nintendo to shame in mobile gaming, or even a possible take over of the living room with a rumored Apple branded HDTV. However, one business the company is likely not to enter anytime soon is extreme sports, although if they did, it would probably look a little something like this…

You either love them, hate them, or inherit them from an ex-girlfriend. But besides smelling like urine, ruining the value of your property, and doing everything they can to make your life inconvenient, cats are beginning to find their niche in a billion dollar industry.

Eric Smith had found his dream girl; she was everything that he wanted her to be. She wasn’t necessarily perfect in her ways, just to him, which prevented him from telling any difference. Shopping for an engagement ring was only a matter of time, the only question really was what style to get for her.
Turns out Eric’s girlfriend was quite vocal about white kind of ring she wanted, she spoke about a specific type of diamond that was a light shade of yellow. Smith never budged and got her the ring; the halo that would go around her finger and always remind them of what they had.
After making the investment, Smith’s girlfriend had some bad news. The kind of news you could conceivably expect to hear somewhere in between sharing a phone plan and getting a puppy, not while talks of wedding rings entered the picture. Keep Reading

We don’t need colder weather or Black Friday sales to remind us that the holidays are on their way — William Shatner has a new commercial announcing his undying love for Deep Fried Turkey to take care of that.
If there were any question remaining on whether or not The Shat had sold out, this should all but take care of that. That isn’t to say the commercial isn’t entertaining if not mildly enlightening, however.
The video series is part of a campaign by State Farm to advise against the perils Keep Reading
