Fine Excuses: Boadicea

Another charming video that hit me in the right spot.

Mostly because there is a bear in there.

This Is Possibly The Worst Way To Die.

So there was a car wreck out in Turkey involving some cars, a lorry, and a van. A van filled with bees.

I laughed heartily when I read this:
Rescue workers, police, medics and beekeepers tried for more than an hour...

And the laughter turned to horror when this happened: release two people trapped inside the vehicle, their faces carpeted with angry bees.

Jesus god damn christ.

Two Comic Related Pictures Before I Go Off Pretending I'm Going To Sleep

Have you ever spent days and weeks and month planning and working and sweating over some fantastic project, only to witness half of it burnt to a crisp from a freak thunder storm that caused a semi to set an orphanage on fire? While tragic, you salvaged what you can, trying to make the best of all your blood, sweat, and tears, and end up with this:

Wolverine from Weapon X is why I will never, ever, work hard for anything, ever.

The internet can not be thanked enough, no matter how much my eyes bleed.

Nothing Good Can Come Of This

Mechanical Tumor is an insane monstrosity thought up by Mio I-zawa whose sole intent is to jab a hypodermic needle full of crazy into our collective heart of madness.

I Love Visiting The Happy Pills

Except that I don't live in Barcelona, and all it has is candy.

No, really, apparently it's a candy store in Barcelona.

Why would I lie?

Kool'Aid Man in Second Life

Incredibly Not Safe For Work, I will repeat, NOT. SAFE. FOR. WORK.

Kool-Aid Man in Second Life (.com) - Tour Promo from on Vimeo.

I do love how it is a perfect demonstration of what Second Life is now. I remember a few years ago when it was going to be the biggest thing since MySpace, and that it will be a paragon of the digital future set to transform lives never before seen. Now it is just a vast wasteland with beautiful and painfully haunting sceneries as a constant reminder of our optimism and failure. The survivors all abandoned their metropolis and congregated in deep casyms hidden from plain view, dancing and trading electronic fluids, birthing baby avatars unloved and uncared for.

Happy Labor Day!

It's a bit hokey, but I think it got the job done.
