BUSH DODGE! Animated Gifs






























I saw this set of hilarious animated gif's on BoingBoing.net that people are cranking out of the Epic Bush Shoe Dodge... I like the World of Warcraft one =)

WOOF WOOF


Dog theme day:
So I saw this Poodle Disguise for Attack Dogs... poor dog.... I can see the embarrassment on his face.... LOL (Like this is really going to fool anyone... more like.... you'll look and be like WTF is that!) =)

On a more interesting note... this article on cracked.com is pretty funny and thought I can totally visualize this. Check it out here....

That aforementioned stubborn streak and confidence was part of the breed standard for a good reason. On top of being a companion for emperors in Imperial China, the Pekingese served as personal guard dogs. The smallest, most ferocious ones were actually called "sleeves" because they could be carried inside large-sleeved garments to be unleashed for short-range attacks. Imagine it as a hairy canister of mace that didn't stop chewing on the eyes until commanded to do so.

Yes that says short ranged ATTACKS!!! lol.. I know its probably full of crap but it's still damn funny....

President Bush's catlike agility


Check out President Bush's catlike agility as he dodges a potentially lethal Iraqi journalists dual shoe attack... well played Mr. Bush.

Taleb less angry

Nassim Taleb with Charlie Rose interviews Nassim Taleb, author of the Black Swan at the 'Financial Ninja' blog. A less angry yet salient conversation about financial reality today. Interesting point... commerce and business are so optimized now... that a cancelled Christmas shipment results in a factory in China shutting down the next day... hyperbole maybe? but the world is indeed complex now... the problem with optimization... is that you usually do not have alot of redundancy built into the system... this makes me think of Lean Manufacturing... or even hyper pipelined computer architecture.... you have this highly efficient chain of dependencies that allow you to optimize your outputs... the problem being though... that if one link in the chain fails... you have to clear the 'pipeline' and take a massive penalty... so it seems that in some cases... on one end of the spectrum you have efficiency... on the other hand redundancy... but with efficiency comes fragility... and with redundancy comes resilience....

My neighborhood is a FEMA disaster area!


My friend Tim D pointed this sign out to me... apparently my neighborhood has been declared a FEMA disaster area... LOL... that sign is about 4 blocks from my crib.

SCARY EPIC FAIL



SUPER MASSIVE EPIC HEDGE FUND FAIL

From the article
Christopher Miller, chief executive of London hedge fund ratings agency Allenbridge Hedgeinfo, said: "Some very big investor names are involved in this. The scheme could only work if enough investors were subscribing for him to pay money out. Some of the world's biggest hedge funds have been hit by this. There will be a monumental impact for the hedge fund industry, it could be larger then Enron.

"Some investors in Madoff's funds face 100% write-downs on the money they invested, they will suddenly be nursing full write-downs in December. When people realize the magnitude of this it will be fizzing around the stratosphere."


Considering the size of hedge funds is in the Trillions... a 100% write down for some big investors... could mean epic fail for the rest of us maybe? Who knows....

AUTO BAIL OUT FAIL

PEARL CREAM!



LOL... so I totally remember these commercials from back in the day... Apparently this is why Asian people only have two ages... 16.. and 120... you'll notice that Asian people pretty much look youthful until they turn about 60.... then they look about 1 Million years old

Here is an infographic I made on how Asian people age.....

World of ObamaCraft



I saw a posting on metafilter.com linking to this article.

So apparently one of Obama's new cabinet members is a World of Warcraft player... Level 70 Shamen.... hopefully this dude.. who goes by.. Supernovan Jenkins... won't go all LEEEEROOYYY JENKINS on America....

Excerpt from Wikipedia entry for Leeroy Jenkins
It features a group of players discussing a detailed battle strategy while one of their number, Leeroy, is away from his computer. Their plan is ruined when Leeroy returns and, ignorant of the strategy, immediately charges headlong into battle shouting his own name as a battle cry. His companions rush to stop him, and his subsequent actions ruin the meticulous plan and the encounter ends in failure for the group. His response to the other players' reactions, "at least I have chicken", was also much parodied.

LOLRUS - Unleashed



Well not quite the original LOLRUS of internet fame.. But this one is almost better.... it can totally play musical instruments, well not really =)

I saw this this morning on BOINGBOING.NET

BEST COMMERCIAL EVER


Lube Moistricants!!!! lol.. i kept seeing this damn commercial on Hulu.com... Best Evar....

Strength, Fighting Ability, and your FACE


So I came across this spiffy Evolutionary Psychology paper entitled "Human adaptations for the visual assessment of
strength and fighting ability from the body and face". The second I saw the title it sounded like something straight out of a video game... yet.. intuitive... check it out... HERE. This makes me think of Festivus for some reason.... FEATS OF STRENGTH!

Hierarchical linear modelling
shows that subjects were extracting cues of strength that were largely independent of height, weight and
age, and that corresponded most strongly to objective measures of upper-body strength—even when the
face was all that was available for inspection.

Sweet looking REAL GUITAR game


Apparently there is a REAL GUITAR game hero thing coming out... check the VIDEO out here.. I first saw this on Gizmodo. Here is the actual manufacturer's website... the video looks pretty damn sweet to me... I hope they don't make this suck....
I'm soooo getting this if it doesn't suck..

HEDGE FUND AVALANCHE FUN























So perhaps the above might be a possible scenario to come?

Speaking of Hedge Fund De-Leveraging...check this article I found on Seeking Alpha

Banks are continuing to ask for more collateral to back past hedge fund lending, causing more funds to liquidate their positions (see WSJ article). When added with investor redemption, bank-induced liquidation is forcing hedge funds to step-up their deleveraging.

Such selling is continuing to put pressure on the market, generating more requests for bank collateral and investor redemption, in what amounts to a catch-22 that continues to spiral the market downward. Such selling has been occurring for a while, as funds have been unwinding exposure to financial and energy stocks, both of which continue to suffer as crude oil continues to drop, and the credit crisis continues to unfold.

BACON WRAPPED TURKEY!


So I was wondering if anyone had done this... and as most things on the internet... the answer is a 'hell yeah!' Check this out at SeiousEats.Com These guys know what the dealio is. =)
