A Little Weird News #2

A Little Weird News for Monday, March 17, 2008:

I was going to make this a once-a-week posting of my interesting internet investigations (okay so I went for the alliteration and killed the sentence... shoot me), but I discovered that I have so many that if I wait and post them once a week I will develop a backlog that would make the federal government proud, so from now on my Sunday Funnies will just be called A Little Weird News and will be posted whenever I get around to writing about 5 different links, or else whenever I feel like it. Love it.

1. You want some interesting/scary statistics? Then check out this youtube video. If you get bored and don't want to watch any more? Well then just skip ahead to 3:26. Oh yeah!!! Otherwise, you may consider watching it with the volume muted to save being annoyed by the repetitive music. Also, check out this quote (from 6:44): "We are currently preparing students for jobs and technologies that don't yet exist... in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet."

2. This little art show seems pointless, but keep watching, keep watching, wait for it... you'll see. I sure didn't see this one coming. Maybe you will.

3. Pictures taken at just the right time. Exactly what the title suggests.

4. Do you ever get tired of those stupid compilation commercials selling you the newest CD that they put together by downloading songs from napster? Well maybe you'll make an exception for "Kids Rock". Not only did they find a great selection of songs, but they are family friendly kids songs... shall we say... redone.

5. Watching things get blown up is always very cool. I especially appreciated the exploding barbie doll head near the end. Enjoy.

79.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot

I almost missed the Barbie head. I was saying, "what is this???". I only knew it was Barbie because of the post.

btw, #4 links to #3.

I loved loved the pics taken at just the right time.

I never saw the art coming...fantastic. I wish I could do that.

You spend too much time on the internet :)

I thought it was 64.7% but maybe you are correct.
