Finally, someone's invented sex toys for your Wiimote
I would have thought that someone would have had invented snap-on Wiimote sex toys from the first day the Wii came out, but I guess sometimes when you’ve got an idea, you’ve got to let it simmer to perfection. Also, I get the one that looks like a dildo, but the robot arm? No, fuck you, that’s okay. That’s not going anywhere near my man bits.
So the good news is that it looks like the 2012 apocalypse is on after all
According to NASA and astronomers around the world, absolutely massive solar flares, the likes of which haven’t been seen since the mid 1800s will whip Earth with “the force of 100 million hydrogen bombs”. Astronomers predict that the solar flares could be powerful enough to disrupt every single power grid on Earth simultaneously… which was only kind of a big deal when it happened in 1859, but could be devastating in the 21st century.
So next month, Bruce Wayne will have made his way fighting through time to come back and kick some Black Lantern ass and he’s coming back to Gotham City to reclaim his rightful mantle of Batman. But wait… right now, Dick Grayson is Batman and Wayne’s son Damien is Robin. FUCK IT WE’LL JUST HAVE TWO BATMANS.
Blizzard holding out on a Starcraft movie until James Cameron is interested
Despite the fact that only now is the World of Warcraft movie getting barely off the ground, Blizzard isn’t averse to having their games adapted to film. On the contrary, they’d love to have more Blizzard properties turned into movies, it’s just that they’re extremely picky when it comes to directors. They’re currently keeping open the idea of a Starcraft movie, but apparently the only director right now that they’d let touch it would be… James Cameron.
Diabetic urine used for the fermentation of high-end single malt whisky for export
James Gilpin, like millions of others around the world, suffers from type 1 diabetes. And since diabetic urine, as a side effect of the ailment, is richer is sugar than most people’s urine. And two main things you need in the production of alcohol are water and sugar. So if you can get a good blend of both in one shot, why not use it? I mean other than the fact that it’s piss?
In "Ghostbusters 3 really is happening" news, plot details and surprise casting revealed
Every couple months for years like a cycle of nature, there’s been a story that Ghostbusters 3 is happening and then another story that it’s not happening. Despite Bill Murray’s previous negativity that Ghostbusters 3 wouldn’t ever happen, it does look like that it’s moving forward ever so slowly. And it looks like that the story will revolve around Oscar, Dana’s (Sigourney Weaver) baby first seen in Ghostbusters 2… as it turns out, Peter Venkman (Murray) is Oscar’s dad and Oscar wants to be a Ghostbuster.

so i linked my twitter account... noticed it had my full name... changed my full name on twitter. Yet its still my full name on comments... any idea why?
No idea, probably something about the way Twitter sends the information. I turned on sign-in to try and limit the complaints I’ve gotten recently about trolling, and if you’d like, you submit another ask question with the comment and I can delete it and you can try again through disqus.

Daily Discussion: If you could spend a day with anyone from history, who would it be?
Imagine you had a time machine. And you had one day to hang out with any historical personage. Let’s also assume that your time machine can translate any language like the TARDIS or like you have a babelfish in your ear or something. So language or culture isn’t a barrier— just choose someone who you think you’d like to spend a day with for one reason or another.
iControlPad turns your iPhone into a gaming monster
There’s been several video game pad add-ons to overcome the iPhone’s crappy lack of physical controls, but I think I’m partial to the iControlPad. I’ve never used it, I’ve never even touched it, but I love its fugly retro handheld console look.
The iControlPad snaps into the port at the bottom of the iPhone and supposedly works pretty well as a set of physical controls, but the only catch is that it only works on jailbroken iPhones. The iControlPad hasn’t gone into production yet, and the image above is only a pre-production prototype, but I hope that they don’t pretty it up any. I like it just how it is.
Francis Bean Cobain is 18 and hot and... wow I feel old now
Francis Bean Cobain turned 18 a couple weeks ago, and with her newfound adulthood came a public realization that her mom is a crazy bitch. And with her turning 18, it means that I officially feel like an old fuck now. I remember in high school when she was born. Ouch. Anyway, here she is somewhere doing something that’s none of your business really… but what’s that she’s reading? Erich Fromm? I fucking love Erich Fromm. I even have that exact edition of that book. Small world.
The next season of Doctor Who will be split into 2 story arcs for spring and fall
Whenever it’s Doctor Who season, me and Delsyd get together every week to watch the current episode and geek out over Doctor Who and speculate on where the story’s going. One thing that he’s brought up several times is that he laments the complete lack of stories longer than but a couple episodes. Sure there’s been threads through a season, but since Doctor Who came back, there’s been no season-long story lines like in the old series.
I don’t know about you, but I know that I spend way too much time already obsessing about trying to make my car as OMG SO CUTE as possible. I’ve tried car thongs and car push-up bras, but nothing seems to work. OMG CAR EYELASHES PERFECT SQUEAL CRASH.
Two new red band clips from Machete can shoot the dick off a mosquito
Machete. It opens this Friday, September 3rd. If these two red band clips from the movie (about 6 minutes total) are any indication, this thing will definitely live up to every one of the outlandish expectations I have of this film. Wow. Just wow.
