    You know the drill.

    Memes. Virals. Musical Insanity, video villainy. Any and all bait for the following conditions: mouth-smirk, diaphragm-rip, arse-leak, colleague-dismissal. That which renders the working-day bearable. That which dooms culturists to misery.

    Your net foragings. The scum which accumulates on the surface of your inbox. The froth on the drunken face of the world. The gorgeous spraint of the massmind.

    (Note that news stories and Things Of Interest now have a separate home in the “NewStrange” thread. This right here is where we present anything that would be fundamentally valueless, if it weren’t so clearly brilliant.)

    Here is something I had a hand in, don't know if this is the right place for it though.

    My team made this for the 72 Hour Film race in Chicago and won the Critic's award.

    Is it just me, or does Tommy Wiseau look like a very bad wax sculpture of Christopher Walken wearing a Cher wig?

    How Big is a Yottabyte?
    The yottabyte is a unit of information or computer storage equal to one septillion (one long scale quadrillion or 1024) bytes (one quadrillion gigabytes). The unit symbol for the yottabyte is YB.
    As of 2011, no storage system has achieved one zettabyte of information. The combined space of all computer hard drives in the world does not amount to even one yottabyte, but was estimated at approximately 160 exabytes in 2006. As of 2009, the entire Internet was estimated to contain close to 500 exabytes

    American Juggalo
    American Juggalo is a look at the often mocked and misunderstood subculture of Juggalos, hardcore Insane Clown Posse fans who meet once a year for four days at The Gathering of the Juggalos.
    We went to The Gathering of the Juggalos and let the Juggalos speak their minds.
    I hope you enjoy it.

    they Just want to be understood...

    @lampcommander. Where is that from? It looks familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    Other than than, here's a history lesson. Back in 1989 when "The Simpsons" was first on the air, it caused such a uproar with the American conservative community, that then President Bush bashed in it in his speeches, and his wife called it "the stupidest thing I've ever seen." The writers retaliated with a letter to the first Mrs. Bush, as Marge Simpson. Barbara Bush then wrote back.

    And here's both letters.

    EDIT: Thanks Brian for telling me about both, didn't notice the misspelling when I corrected it the first time. *phew*

    That is the famous Gashlycrumb Tinies

    did 'constructive' get auto-corrected from 'conservative'?

    Speaking of which, I was reading the Laura Hudson piece and I became very confused.



    What am I missing that explains the interesting pants ideas that this picture is having?

    @Brian Mowrey - Elephantiasus?

    Well, I think he was wearing the blue arms? For strategy?

    And then he contracted elephantiasis
