Posted on 30 January 2007

Windows Vista was released today. For those of you wondering how to upgrade to Vista I found an instructional video on YouTube that I imagine is a pretty good estimate of what the process will be like. Hey, if this German kid can do it, anyone can.

The 11 Nail Trick

Posted on 29 January 2007

I’m not sure exactly why you’d really need to balance 10 nails on the head of one, but I guarantee it’s a skill that would win plenty of bets. I say ditch Prince as the half-time show at this year’s Superbowl and let’s try this with 11 cheerleaders. Should work.

Ray Gun Makes you Feel Like you’re on Fire

Posted on 24 January 2007

Heat Raygun
The military has developed a real life ray gun that can shoot a beam of energy that, while harmless, makes you feel like you are on fire. The beam can be fired from up to 500 yards away and penetrates through your clothing creating the feeling of 130 degrees on your skin. I have a similar weapon that makes women’s clothes actually catch on fire -my good looks. On a serious note, I’ll be up late tonight thinking of about a million ways I could use this thing -starting with the list of hot chicks I’ll get to strip off their clothes.

You Can’t Drive on Ice

Posted on 18 January 2007

Jay Leno played a partial clip of this video of cars sliding around on ice. There’s plenty more icy mayhem in the long version. It’s like watching bumper cars in slow motion, and perfect proof that nature can still kick your ass no matter of big of SUV you build. The video is from Poland so you’d think these drivers would have a concept of how slippery ice is, it’s not like it snowed in Arizona. Although if you visit Sun City where everyone is pushing 100 they pretty much drive that way already.

Ice Storm Photos

Posted on 14 January 2007

These ice storm pictures are crazy. It would be pretty hard to come up with a description for the level of suck that comes along with having your car incased in ice. Probably the only thing worse would be if you were still in it. I’m not a genius, but I’m pretty sure your defroster isn’t going to cut it. Two more ice storm pictures after the jump.Street covered in iceVan in Ice Storm Continue Reading
