    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. Bring it all hither.

    (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.)

    You know the tendril.

    Full disclosure, I made this, but it's on the net so that counts...right?

    I've seen a couple of these before, but it's nice to get them all in one place: 15 Awesomely Assholish Superman Comic Book Covers

    I think they missed one.

    @lampcommander - There's a fair few more than 15. Superdickery seems to think there's about 258 distinct occurrences of superman being a massive asshole.

    @lampcommander: the only one of those (on the website you linked) that's not an actual cover is the "Action Camus" one, it's actually a spoof by R. Sikoryak, from MASTERPIECE COMICS .

    MSNBC, via Jezebel:

    "Sorry, guys: We judge you by your facial hair"
    ...according to science, men with beards:

    Are SCARY. People view bearded male faces as more threatening than angry non-bearded folks.
    Don't do better with the ladies: In tests, women around the world did not rate bearded men as any more attractive than the same men pictured without beards.

    Are more intimidating to other men, and "may intimidate rival males by increasing perceptions of the size of the jaw, overall length of the face, and by enhancing aggressive and threatening jaw-thrusting behaviors ... This suggests that the beard plays an important role in intermale signaling of threat and aggression."

    Seem guilty. When mock juries are presented with pictures of men accused of crimes like rape, the juries are much more likely to believe the bearded men are the culprits. When a study asked 381 people to sketch the face of a criminal offender, eighty-two percent of the sketches contained some form of facial hair.

    Are intelligent and mature! Beards "have often been seen a sign of maturity, education, and competence" because they reflect one's androgen status (how much testosterone he's making).

    Are athletes, sometimes: beards can give the impression of "physical strength."

    If all the world's water were gathered together into one sphere:

    Odd question: What is the size comparison of that sphere of water to the Moon? Just curious.

    Never mind. Watersphere: 860 miles (1385km) in diameter, Moon: 2159 miles (2474km). Not even close.
