I love your site but I have a problem. When I scroll down and reach an embedded youtube video, the scrolling stops. I have to move around the youtube window to keep scrolling. It's very annoying and it only happens in youtube videos. Vimeo is fine. After playing around, I have found other tumbler sites have the same problem. No other sites with embedded youtube that I have found have issues. I'm on osx lion with the latest version of firefox and flash. Safari does the same thing. Any insights?
i have that problem if my mouse pointer is in the path of a youtube video, because when you scroll down to the video, mouse focus moves to the video. so just keep the mouse pointer off to the side. That’s all I’ve got.
Stop me if you've heard this one: So an Apple employee walks into a bar with a new iPhone prototype...
Last year, shortly before the iPhone 4 was launched, an unlucky/stupid/drunk/clumsy Apple employee was at a bar, field-testing a disguised prototype of the new phone and accidentally left it behind at a bar. Fast forward to now, and the exact same shit just happened with a prototype of the iPhone 5. Only this one wasn’t sold to Gawker, but apparently sold on Craigslist for $200.
I'm pretty sure I've finished the internet. Once I've finished reading everything on your site, and a couple of others that I frequent I really don't know where to go for teh lulz or news. Do you have any sites you suggest from your daily surfing?
Suicide by decapitation. When you really, really mean it.
If you’re going to get all crazy during a domestic dispute that’s going to end in your own suicide anyway, you might as well do in a spectacular fashion, like a guy from Yorktown, Virginia did. His fight with his wife resulted in his beheading in front of police, something that you just don’t forget.
ICM Registry says that BarackObama.xxx, SarahPalin.xxx etc will be off limits
What with ICANN opening up a whole porny can of worms by approving the .xxx top level domain, they’ve had to set up some conditions. Namely, they and the ICM Registry have put together a huge list of “VIPs” whose names will be ineligible for use in combination with .xxx. So no barackobama.xxx, hillaryclinton.xxx or sarahpalin.xxx for example. There goes my million dollar porn site idea.
Wanna see some closeup pics of Henry Cavill in his Superman suit? Sure ya do.
We’ve seen a couple far away set pics of Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel, now here he is close up. And as you can see, the lack of red undies is probably the least disturbing of Superman’s new fashion choices.

David Bowie's "Space Oddity" as a kid's book. Most depressing children's book ever.
I’m just as much of a fan of David Bowie as everyone else, and I love the song “Space Oddity” for its haunting elegance, but turn it into a children’s book? I guess kids have to learn about loss at some point, but damn. “Space Oddity” by Andrew Kolb has a gorgeous 1960s style to it, but it seems at odds with the song itself.
Today's the day DC Comics resets most of its universe. Here's what to expect.
Today’s that magical day when DC restarts 52 of its titles that will redefine their comics universe forever. From Superman to Batman to Wonder Woman to the Justice League, most of DC comics is getting a brand new facelift. And yes, that’s Cyborg in the JL, taking the token minority role from Martian Manhunter. Bastards!
China wants to pull asteroids into Earth's orbit to mine them. Wait, can we vote on this?
While the US is figuring how to one day land humans on an asteroid, China wants to think about how we can bring an asteroid to us, pulling one into Earth’s orbit so they can mine it. While at first it appears like a really, really bad idea, it actually could be very possible.
New Mexico state trooper gets caught having sex on camera in full uniform. That's one way to get out of a ticket.
If you get pulled over for speeding, you can convince a cop to let you off with a warning or less. Fucking a state trooper on the hood of your car in broad daylight is one way to do it, until your shenanigans get caught on tape. Getting out of a ticket probably isn’t the motivation here, I’m just wildly speculating. But the fact is that a New Mexico state trooper is in hot water after being caught on tape fucking a woman on the hood of a car. And that’s usually frowned upon.
AT&T and T-Mobile merger? US Dept. of Justice says cannot has.
So the bad news is that if you’re a current T-Mobile customer and you were hoping you were just a few pen strokes away from being able to get an iPhone without switching carriers, it looks like you might be SOL. Earlier today, the Department of Justice from the HALL OF JUSTICE have filed an antitrust suit to block the merger.
List Soup: 26 movies you thought would suck but didn't
Sometimes it’s way too easy to judge a movie by its cover. Or its lead actor. Or the market for the film or any other preconceived notion. But often, a movie that you’ve avoided like the plague for a number of reasons will actually surprise you and be a hell of a lot better than you thought.
Rebooting a franchise can be a tricky prospect. You’re expect to maintain a certain level of familiarity while still putting a new spin on it. It’s a delicate balance; especially once you factor in that you have to keep longtime fans happy as well as bring in a new viewer base. So when Warner Brothers decides to take it’s most iconic franchise, The Looney Tunes, and put a new spin on it for a new generation of viewers, how does it turn out?
A drawing for every single NES game released in 1988
These little drawings represent each game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1988. These were created by Campbell Whyte, and some of the individual drawings are for sale on Campbell’s Etsy store. How many can you name?
Give an IHCer some feedback on his stand-up material
I just started a blog. By day, I’m a morning radio asshole. But I started writing a stand-up routine and decided it was more fun just to write. You needn’t (but feel free to) post this on your site, but as I love I Heart Chaos (and use it daily as show prep material) I’d love some feedback/criticism if and when you get a chance. Thanks!
Halo 4 will be the first of the "Reclaimer Trilogy"
On the last day of PAX last week, Microsoft held their big Halo 4 panel. They answered some questions, they showed off some concept art, but the bulk of the game is still in that “we can’t talk about that” region. Still, it was nice to hear something about Halo 4. At E3, Microsoft said that Halo 4 would be the first of a new trilogy, and we now know that that trilogy is called the “Reclaimer Trilogy”.
Sooo HP's going to keep making the TouchPad? Stop messing with my emotions!
HP comes out with the TouchPad. In the short span of just a couple months, TouchPad sales are so dismal that HP says it’s seriously thinking about getting out of the hardware business period— tablets, desktops, the whole lot. And so TouchPads drop to the fire sale price of $100 and suddenly the TouchPad is the hottest thing since the zipper fly. And now HP says that they’re going to keep making TouchPads at least through October, possibly longer. What?
Josh Brolin confirmed as the lead in Spike Lee's Oldboy
I’m still not in any way, shape or form at all convinced that Spike Lee’s American remake of Oldboy will be any good at all, but maybe we all could be surprised and Lee could knock it out of the park. One ray of sunshine is the news that Josh Brolin will be playing the lead character of Oh Dae-Su (certainly renamed for the American version), a man imprisoned for 15 years for reasons unbeknownst to him.
Nyan Cat creator makes cats out of all 151 original Pokemon
PRguitarman, the guy that invented Nyan Cat, spent 6 months drawing out every single one of the 151 original Pokemon in Nyan Cat style, minus any Pop Tarts or rainbows. Pretty large gif past the break.
