Those Mongolians Are Monsters

Who would have thought that the world's tallest man would be Chinese? Well, he is. He's huge. He's 7foot, 9inches tall. And he saves dolphins on the side.

The long arms of the world's tallest man reached in and saved two dolphins by pulling plastic material out of their stomachs, state media and an aquarium official said Thursday.

(Thanks to typer195 for the link.)

It's the Mongolians. They're all huge. I don't know what they eat. I've seen Close to Eden. There ain't much of anything to eat.

Glenn found this X-Men race car set. The description says you race "X-Men characters Vanquish and Magneto Viper through the winding track as they chase each other".

Who the hell is Vanquish? And what's this Magneto Viper thing about?

I think i saw this on the Venture Bros.

As Christmas nears, Austrian children hoping for gifts from Santa Claus will also be watching warily for "Krampus", his horned and hairy sidekick.

In folklore, Krampus was a devil-like figure who drove away evil spirits during the Christian holiday season.


"Krampus scared ... me when I was seven," said one, identified as Riem on FM4's Web site. "I panicked that I was never going to see my father again because a hoofed human wanted to throw me in his wooden backpack."


I love the Venture Bros.

Milk Campaign Drags Along The Unsuspecting Cookie

Hoping to stir up thirst for milk, officials installed advertisements in several San Francisco bus shelters on Monday that give off the scent of freshly baked cookies.

The technology that creates the scent is very similar to that used in magazine ads. Scented adhesives are placed throughout the interior of the bus shelters, including under the benches.

"As long as they are not harmful chemicals, it's OK," one somewhat confused elderly woman said as she pondered the cookie smell in one of the shelters. "They are trying to sell milk? Is that it?"


I understand that we tend to think of milk and cookies going together as a snack for kids. But if i smell cookies, i'm pretty sure it's not going to start a sudden yearning in my heart for milk. I'm even more sure that it's going to make me crave cookies instead. Which adults and teens alike prolly pair most with coffee considering our caffeine addicted society. Or Mt. Dew, depending on what company you keep.

UPDATE: San Francisco MTA has pulled the plug on the ads.

The fragrant billboards, posted at five bus shelters on Monday in an effort by dairy producers to make passengers thirsty for milk, had to come down because the shelters' maintenance contractor had not informed San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials, said an agency spokeswoman.
The agency also received several complaints from bus riders concerned that the aroma might not be safe, she said
"It is unfortunate that the MTA has requested the removal of our scented bus shelter ads," the milk board said. "The Got Milk? scented bus shelters were intended to be a tasteful change from the frequent blasts of exhaust that permeate the air around some of San Francisco's bus shelters."
