schrödinger's cat webcam. i was talking about schrödinger's cat recently with someone. after talking a look at this page, i realized that schrödinger's cat is not at all what i thought it was. as a side note, the whole mad science laboratories site is pretty cool. [via 50 cups]

clue number 11 that i've been spending too much time lots of time, all of which is invaluable to my health, with certain people: when reading today's megatokyo, i swore that second pannel said "i've been training with the dancing monkeys of the california hills." [and before you say, well, what were clues 1 through 10? i would like to point out that 11 was an arbitrary number based on the assumption that there must've been other clues along the way.]


dancing paul. [via seann]

had the opportunity to see la nouba in orlando. it was amazing. beautiful to look at. being a theatre geek, i was completely blown away by the technical aspects and the overall coordination of it. amazing.

"I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days." [i suppose i should have mentioned this earlier, but you may want to turn the volume down on this one if anyone else is in earshot and easily offended.]

next week, updates will be sporadic as i will be on a business trip. 5 days, baby. just 5 days.

a day late, but still entertaining. make your own candy heart. they look pretty good, too. [via memepool]

what made my day, case 14 in a series. hatten är din. or something. there is sound, but it's probably just as entertaining without it. and it's pretty damn long. but you'll get the idea, if you don't want to stick with it all the way through. although there is one thing towards the end that i cannot for the life of me figure out what it is. . . of course, that would imply that i was able to figure out the rest of it. which isn't exactly true. just watch. [via /usr/bin/girl]

the history channel webby site presents the history [duh] of valentine's day.


if you need me, i'll be banging my head against a wall.

why the human race is doomed, case 19 in a series. Fox says no to contraceptive ad on "Temptation Island." ok, let's think about this for a moment. the sole purpose of this tv show is to break up serious couples by taunting them with other sexy people. and they won't air a contraceptive ad. right. makes perfect sense. ow. brain. hurtz.

why the human race is doomed, case 18 in a series. apparently, the separation of church and state is discrimination, and dubya won't stand for it. "In candid comments picked up by a microphone Bush did not know was open, he confided to Catholic charity leaders that his initiative ties directly into the abortion issue. The next 'logical step' from his plan, Bush said, would be protecting unborn fetuses." this thing with him talking "candidly" and getting picked up by mics happens so often, i am starting to wonder - is it perhaps all planned? or is he really just that stupid?
