NASA and Rovio have teamed up to put an Angry Birds exhibit in the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando Florida, centered around the Angry Birds in Space theme and complete with B-movie esque moniker Angry Birds Space Encounter.
The exhibit was first announced about a year ago by astronaut Donald Pettit when he was living aboard the International Space Station — and while we were first apt to attribute such an idea to space sickness, Rovio and NASA officially opened the exhibit at Cape Canaveral last Friday. Both companies are launching the exhibit with the hope that it inspires more kids to get excited about space and want to explore it.

He’s back…albeit this time Charlie Sheen is covering a different subject matter. The man who set the world record for the fastest to 1 million twitter followers once again returned to the online platform to make this following statement regarding his daughter being (in his words) forced out of school because she was incessantly bullied: Continue reading “Charlie Sheen Asks Fans On Twitter To Rise Up, Send Dog-Sh#t to Daughter’s Bullies” »
Sure, movies and shows like The Walking Dead and 28 Days Later are good, scary fun, viewed from the safety of our cozy homes, where we can go to sleep knowing it’s all B.S. Right?
Apparently it’s not that simple. Much in the way that Stephen Hawking recently joined a robot awareness think-tank — just in case the robots we manufacture end up getting too smart — academics and intellectuals are calling for some real research into the zombie world.
“You know that day that you once told me about, when Gotham would no longer need Batman? It’s coming.”
…But it’s not here, yet.
A truism the internet proved again today, as a video of a man disguised as The World’s Greatest Detective, has gone viral.
West Yorkshire Police in the U.K. reported that the man handed over a wanted suspect, then promptly disappeared.
Police said, “The person who brought the man in was dressed in a full Batman outfit. His identity remains unknown.”
Witnesses say the man dressed as The Bat, dropped the suspect off at the front desk and said, “I’ve caught this one for you.” He then vanished and up to this point has not been seen.
The apprehended suspect appeared before a court for charges stemming from handling stolen goods to various fraud offenses.
Out of all of this, we certainly know there is one man who is not a fraud…because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A dark knight.
You can’t make this stuff up (chances are if you did you’d probably get suspeneded)…
A 7 year old boy was given a two day suspension for shaping his lunch pastry into a gun and reportedly making “bang, bang” sounds with it (it’s been at least a decade since I’ve typed the phrase bang, bang sounds).
The tragedy of it all, according to the boy, was that the pastry was shaped to originally fashion itself after a mountain. Continue reading “7 Year Old Boy Suspended By School for Shaping Pastry Into a Gun (Update: Letter To Parents)” »
Earlier this week, we told you about the BBC Series that is aiming to put America’s zombie apocalypse (and most popular cable) TV show, The Walking Dead, to shame with their horror driven series “In The Flesh.”
Now it looks like the BBC is going one step further in making a mere announcement for the show – they’ve created a PSA warning you to stay away from zombies, you know, in case you happen to be confronted by the dead (type that last phrase in and this will come up as one of Google’s top search results). Continue reading “BBC Makes Actual PSA To Keep You Safe, Advise You How To Avoid Zombies” »
Judy Viger from South Glen Falls, New York, only wanted to give her son a gift that would both a)eliminate the need for her to ever give him a gift again and also b)make him the most popular kid on campus, which might have been two huge problem solvers for both of them.
Sadly New York State police didn’t see it quite the same way, and have arrested Ms. Viger for endangering a minor. Continue reading “‘World’s Greatest Mom’ Hires Strippers for Her Son’s 16th Birthday, Arrested by Cops” »
College of New Jersey students who find themselves caught up in the heat of the moment now have an option: emergency condom delivery, courtesy of Kyle McCabe and his handy (ba-dum!) website, CondAm.net.
You phone in a message to the guy via his site, he hits you up, you’re bagged in no time. Continue reading “College-Based Website Offers Speedy Emergency Condom Delivery” »
Apparently Iceland Interior Minister Ögmundur Jónasson isn’t satisfied with his home country’s ban on the printing and circulation of pornography. Now he’s taking extra steps to ensure that, in addition, Internet pornography ceases to exist.
While such a move in the U.S. would no doubt entail hours and billions in legal and fiscal complications, Jónasson’s seriously close to executing his plan — and he’s got plenty of lawmakers to back him up. Continue reading “Iceland On Mission to Ban Internet Porn; Will it Do More Harm Than Good?” »
With DC focusing its attention on the Man of Steel and Justice League movies, auto-makers Kia and DC Entertainment have collaborated on a brand new car known as the Optima Hybrid Superman One, a self-explanatory environmentally conscious Optima, painted to look like Supes himself.
While Clark would certainly approve of its green theme, really, what’s the point IF IT CAN’T FLY? Continue reading “Kia and DC Comics Build Hybrid Superhero Car for a Good Cause” »
If you were one of roughly seventeen people tuning into (living?) in The Great Falls, Montana today, you were treated to a bit of an unusual message on your TV.
The above video depicts a couple of pranksters (we hope) taking over the emergency broadcast system and declaring “residents have risen from the dead and are attacking the living. Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous.” Continue reading “Pranksters Take Over Emergency Broadcast System, Declare Zombie Apocalypse in Montana” »
Japan will soon be introducing the Ju-C-Air, a(nother) penis-powered controller that soon will allow horny gamers everywhere to play completely in the nude and without the risk of damaging those already-sore wrists.
Sort of like existenZ, the wireless and muscle-responsive controller will be packaged specifically with a game. In this case that’s the virtual sex Custom Maid 3-D. Continue reading “The World’s Most Perverted Game Controller Allows You To Play Video Games With Your Penis” »
Now manga artists have designed a series of posters featuring Matsumiya in sorta-revealing police outfits and wielding a very big baton (or taser maybe). Continue reading “Japanese City Uses (Real-Life) Manga Character to Fight Crime, Sing Songs” »
Those who heard about the gas explosion at Mexico City’s Pemex headquarters last week may have also seen this photo, originally published in local Mexican newspapers/magazines, and which seems to accurately describe the horrific scene inside.
A closer look, however, reveals that the rescuer helping lead several citizens to safety looks an awful lot like Wolverine. Continue reading “Guy Dressed as Wolverine Helps Rescue Citizens From Deadly Explosion” »
Remember being young? And building with Legos and Lincoln Logs and *cough* Construx blocks, that helped us envision our wildest dreams? Remember those dreams being crushed by vagina — and happily, if somewhat wistfully, leaving them behind?
Well it doesn’t always have to end that way — and thanks to a talented designer by the name of Jason Torchinsky, little 4-year-old Levi is going to see his fantasy car designed by BMW’s top artists. Continue reading “BMW, Talented Artist Help 4-Year-Old Kid Design His 42-Wheeled Dream Car” »
When the now-infamous, anti-U.S.North Korean propaganda video aimed at the United States got pulled from YouTube the other day, questions ran amok: why was it pulled? Where did they get such life-like explosions?
Only one name could answer to both: Activision, mighty defender of U.S. copyright law and beat-downer of North Korean propaganda.

We’ve all experienced the occasional unpleasant romantic encounter (or lack thereof); most of us, guys and gals, hopefully deal with it in a relatively constructive manner.
Unfortunately, a 29-year-old Texas man by the name of Andrew Mendoza didn’t see it that way — and, after being stood up by his girlfriend, retaliated by taking it out on a poor animal. And by ‘taking it out,’ we mean whipping out his penis and having sex with a horse. Continue reading “Texas Man Busted for Bestiality; Tells Cops He Was Trying to Make a ‘Horse-Baby’” »
Perhaps signaling the beginning of the end for the few remaining record companies, Britain-based HMV – a multimedia corporation best known in the music business — had a mass firing yesterday, terminating the careers of about 190 people at one of its England offices.
One of the employees happened to have the username and password to the company’s official Twitter account, and thus decided to tweet his thoughts live as he was being let go. The result is both hilarious, and, given just how mass the firing was, also kind of depressing.

Turns out that sitting around all day is actually killing your chances of impregnating your significant other (if that’s indeed your intention).
Perhaps that’s a good reason to get up and, we dunno, swing a tennis racket every once in a while. And by tennis racket we of course mean Wii Tennis game controller! Continue reading “A Reason to Buy a Wii? ‘Too Much’ Couch Sitting Will Make You Impotent, Study Finds” »
Jeremy Clarkson, host of the popular British show Top Gear, has invented the P45. With a helmet for a roof, a visor for a windshield, and inspired by a LEGO spaceman, the car is the smallest street legal automobile in Great Britain.
You can fill up the gas tank without getting out (by placing the hose between your…well, crotch) and also create a popular video on YouTube just by driving it, but outside of that, the P45 doesn’t have too many perks.
