Quebec clears Olympic debt — 3 decades later

death trap


Quebecers finally need a new nickname for Montreal's Olympic Stadium — the "Big Owe" no longer applies because they've paid off their debts from the 1976 Summer Games.

Officials from the Olympic Installations Board, which oversees the stadium, have confirmed that the last payment was made in mid-November, three decades after the world descended on Montreal for the Games.

Thirty fucking years, just as old as Drapeau's love child (you had to be there to get that one)

I hate Borat part4

and the Golden Globes as well now.

The Continuing Slide of America into the Laughing Stock of the World™ continues today with word that the folks at the Golden Globe Awards have nominated the Borat movie for "Best Comedy"

And nothing says "Best Comedy" to Americans than fat naked men, wrestling...ummm witty.

I would have given that nod to America itself, but it seems to have "Best Tragedy" and "Best Farce" all lined up.

A Gathering of Sick Fucks

In Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Holocaust deniers are meeting "to create an opportunity for thinkers “who cannot express their views freely in Europe about the Holocaust”"

Glad I can still express my views freely about this meeting.

Thinkers are the last things you are, you sick fucks.

YouPay YouTube

YouTube is offering an online surrey, where the plan seems to be that they will offer a "pay" service for bigger uploads, online video editing, and more!

Then they ask would you be willing to pay....

Guess what I said...

Welcome to the social disease

Microsoft has redesigned its website, and within is this hilarious section on Zune.

Zune owners do the right thing and leave their nasty machines in the grass...


Look, we love living in the bus shelter, "squirting" songs that only last 3 plays at each other!


Is it social yet?

See the happy smiling "hip" young actors having "fun".

Ha ha

And oh look, even Angela Davis has one!

Ha ha ha

It's hip, muthafucka!

Earliest flying mammal discovered


My new favorite pic of the day.

Mammals took to the skies at least 70 million years earlier than previously thought, scientists say.

A fossil uncovered in China suggests mammals were trying out flight at about the same time - or even earlier - than birds, the team reports in Nature.

Throwies are a revolution in temporary art: invented by the Graffiti Research Lab, they can stick to anything that is ferromagnetic and glow for about two weeks. On December 8th, we will create a thousand points of light when we decorate a massive surprise with colourful brilliance. Each participant will be given a handful of these delightful devices and let loose simultaneously :)

No, I don't Love it

I'm A LoserThis new "Beatles" album is nothing of the sort.

It is new, in that it is the soundtrack for the (shiver) Cirque de Soleil's (shiver) Vegas show based around the music of the Beatles.

Fine, sort of.

Why must the biggest acts always end up there, living or dead?

Anyway, if anyone has the right to fuck around with the Beatles, it's George Martin.

And fuck around he has, with the aid of his son. In the context of a show such as CDS, it might work great...but to listen to as a stand alone, that's something else.

Songs such as Strawberry Fields get the treatment, which works to a certain extent when it is contained within the same song, but as the song progresses, other songs are layer disastrous effect.

On the plus side, the newly cleaned up version sound wonderful, and one can just imagine what the digital releases of the original songs will be like.

(That is if they leave them alone. Certain "mistakes" were quietly removed from the CD releases, and I can only assume that this Lucasizing will continue.)

I don't care what the surviving Beatles say, Lennon if alive would smite them, one and all.

The LSD Effect

An 8/10 on the accuracy scale.

Hitler Speaks

When Adolf Hitler bought Eva Braun a movie camera, to film the people and parties which occurred at their Bavarian retreat, the technology to include synchronized sound had not yet been developed.

So when soldiers discovered Hitler's private home movies, in the Berlin bunker where the Nazi leader took his own life, the tantalizing clips they unearthed, featuring leading members of the SS in a more relaxed mode, remained silent for 60 years.

Now, leading edge lip reading software has enabled German experts to re-voice these films and provide us with a chilling insight into Hitlers private world.

Emperor Maxentius Insignia Found in Rome

Archaeologists have unearthed what they say are the only existing imperial insignia belonging to Emperor Maxentius - precious objects that were buried to preserve them and keep them from enemies when he was defeated by his rival Constantine.

Maddeningly, without images, but read more here
