How Not To Park A Car

As I'm very tired and lazy, here are some more random links for today that don't deserve a post all by their own:

-An Island being created by a volcano. Pretty cool sight.
-Indiana Jones is back. He's old! Sitting Down! Wearing a hat!
-Top 10 Physical Transformations by an actor They all scare me.
-More Dark Knight photos. I can't say I love the bat-bicycle.

Some recommended Youtube clips:

-Greatest Dominos Setup Ever . I can't imagine being the person who knocks it down when it's almost finished. Would be high-larious.
-50 Cent makes water now. As pointed out in a comment for the video: "Wow, its cliche, racist, insulting to Beethoven, insulting to 50 cent and insulting to black people everywhere. Great commercial". Indeed.
-Padraig agus Nadia. And you thought TG4 weren't funny?
-The Worst Movies Ever. Shocking they didn't include this.

A Zoolander Remake?

Why, yes it is. But only in trailer format. Starring... wait for it... Hurley from Lost. There are so many perfect fit's here, editing wise, that it suprises me how low it's view count is even though it was added back in December. This is a masterclass in sound in video editing so enjoy.

People Take On Bull... Bull Wins

Here are some random links for the day I thought are pretty cool:

-Click here to see a huge errupting manhole.

-Clickity here for a list of the worst cars ever. Some deserve to be mentioned on that list twice.

-Point your pointer using your pointer device here to see an impressive but slightly old flash animation. I once tried doing something similiar but decided I'd rather do something worthwhile like trying to come up with a colour nobody has ever seen before (it always turns a metalic green colour). That or run in fields kicking butterflies in mid-air to show how powerful I am. "How do you like me now, bitch?! You and you're damm flapping".

Photosynth Demo

Now this is the future. Photosynth creates a 3D image of a building or landscape using Flickr images that include any related location name tags. It's hard to put into words how mind blowing it really is but as five time Formula 1 World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio would say "Hello. I'm Juan Manuel Fangio".

Happy Muppet Monday (again)

Happy Muppet Monday! It's a fortnightly event now, apparently. There are two Youtube videos again today. This one is a funky and kinda twisted song featuring Kermit. It's as if everyone involved in making it was doped up on sherbert. Click here to see it.

Click here to see a great Cookie Monster clip. That's it. No more Muppet Mondays. I'm losing credibility with the hip kids these days, with their hippin' and their hoppin' and their bippin' and their boppin' and they put the jello in the pudding pop! Coocoo cachoo, ya see?

Spending Sensibly on a car

I'm currently saving up to buy myself a car and I've been advised to spend something small like €1500 on my first one. It'll only end up being bumped, whacked, smashed and possibly chopped in half like the $1.2 million Ferrarri Enzo above. See more cars like the one above here.

If your internet can handle it, there's a scary forum post of some guy's crazy mom who fills up their small house with random stuff bought just for the sake of buying stuff. There are only three chairs and a shower full of unopened boxes. Windows are covered to prevent heat coming in/ going out during the different seasons. Check it out here and realise how good you have it.
