    You know how this goes.

    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.)


    [Note: I spotted a new thread already started downlist. Feel free to transfer formerly-posted things from there to here. Going to be getting back on top of timings round here this week - have successfully cleared my desk a little.]

    Good Guy Bruce Willis

    Even if this is from a fake news story, I like that Bruce is now a meme.
    He's even ripping on his own action-hero-history in new Sky Broadband adverts in the UK.

    I don't care that the story's almost a year old. Something must be done about both the lack of demand for redheads AND the Scandinavian surplus gism lake.

    Redheaded donors are being turned away at sperm bank
    Redheads might have more fun but it seems there is an overabundance of them.
    That is if one goes by the view of the world's largest sperm bank, Cryos International, in Denmark.
    It has announced that it is turning away red-haired donors because there is a lack of demand for their "product".
    Its director, Ole Schou, has said no to all Scandinavian types, not just the redheads "because we simply have too much in our stock."

    Careful, Dorkmuffin, you'll have The Red Mist turning-up at your doorstep carrying a mass assortment of British confectionary bars (trust me, that isn't as good as it might initially sound.)

    Sounds like a wager. I see you and raise you one Rubber Johnny.

    That actually doesn't bother me at all. Maybe it'd make me paranoid while high, though.

    Fair play - you must have guts of cast-iron.

    The first time I watched it, my legs and face were disputing whether they should be dancing or hurling.

    That Rap News video led me to this: Clicky!

    I didn't know anything about the Tor Project, and they don't have an FAQ for idiots, but it seems like a good idea. I think a lot of people will find it baffling and just ignore it though.

    Michael Fassbender to star in film biopic of Manchester's beloved Frank Sidebottom.

    Hilariously, noted pop culture site The AV Club describe Frank as a "rock star"... which is like describing Bez as a ballerina.

    This is Frank Sidebottom:
