Ummm... Other?

Where Strawberries Ought Never Tread

I found this

Strawberry Cheetos

while reading about this

Pepsi Pink

Ew. If strawberry flavored coating on your Cheetos and strawberry milk flavored carbonated "soda" isn't gross enough for you, just think about Honey Butter Doritos for a bit. Go ahead. Do it.

Toys 'R' Us Perpetrates Attack on Decency

Toys 'R' Us is at it again, attempting to corrupt our children with their potty-mouthed toys.


I'm with the extra from the cast of The Walking Dead. I think we should BURN them!

Hippos are Fast!

The Guardian tells me they can run up to 30mph. Picture 3 tons of that with the mouth and the teeth coming at you at 30mph.

I'm totally impressed the 52 yr old man and 7 yr old boy in the story managed to get up into a tree before the hippo got them.

Do You Still Beat Your Wife?

Here's a 1970s ad for a book that Boing Boing tells me "was available for cash or trade (the author accepted stamps), suggesting that this wasn't a mere money-making venture on the part of the author, but rather represented some kind of ideological quest."

Do You Still Beat Your Wife?

I'm curious about the "rollicking" that goes on in the book. It must be rollicking good fun to cause the wife to look so happy about the whole thing. Perhaps the Dead Milkmen is playing in the background...

I'm gonna beat my wife
I'm gonna beat my wife now
Gonna smack her with a 2x4

Sadly, not vegan.

High Speed Internet to Low Income Families

Link

Families who qualify for free school lunches will be able to sign up for $9.95 a month high-speed internet services from top cable providers.

Further, families eligible for free or reduced school lunches will be able to buy low-cost computers from leading technology companies.

...

The initiative is part of the Federal Communications Commission's effort to extend affordable broadband internet access across the United States.

A third of Americans, some 100 million people, do not have high-speed internet services in their homes, with cost being among the top barriers to broadband adoption.

"We think we're going to move the needle on the broadband adoption gap," FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said of his hopes for the new commitments made to the Connect to Compete initiative launched last month.

Connect to Compete had already garnered commitments from nonprofit groups and companies including Microsoft Corp and retailer Best Buy Co to help boost digital literacy and computer skills.

Now the public-private initiative will see cable providers, including Comcast Corp, Time Warner Cable and Cablevision Systems Corp, offer internet service at a fraction of the national average of $45 a month price, an FCC official said.

Eligible families will be able to sign up for the service during a three-year sign-up window starting in the spring in some areas with the offer going nationwide by next September to coincide with the school year.

Oh, what? AOL dialup not good enough for you?

It's good they remembered that discounted internet is useless without an affordable computer.

I Don't Get Art

Apparently, this is worth over a million dollars.

Martin Kippenberger Wenn's anfaengt durch die Decke zu tropfen (When it Starts Dripping from the Ceiling)

Or, rather, it was.

A cleaner with the best intentions accidentally destroyed a piece of art worth more than $1 million when she removed what she thought was a "stain" from the installation.
...
The piece of art, titled "When It Starts Dripping From The Ceilings," features a series of wooden planks and a (formerly) discolored plastic bowl. The artist, the late Martin Kippenberger, intended for viewers to understand that the bowl had been discolored by water running over the pieces of wood.

Look, if you need a bowl that's been discolored by water running over it, i've got plenty here at work you can have. It'll only cost you $250,000.
