Get off my lawn.
I know a bit more about the world than most. Not more than everybody--just more than your pre-pubescent 14 year old boy. Do not take me for a fool (unless it happens to be hilarious).
At first I was willing to merely write this off as “decent” borderlining “pretty good”, but then the 8-bit rendition of ’Where is my Mind" cinched it for me.
This was pretty decent.
That goddamned grappling hook got me every time.

Hey this comic reminds me of sports conversation, in fact.
“So did you see the sporting event last night?”
“Which sporting event? The one with my favorite sporting team?”
“Yeah that one! Oh man there was some crazy sporting going on.”
“Dude, did you SEE the way they were sporting?”
“I haven’t seen sporting like that since the last time the sported and scored and stuff.”
“Yeah, except that one time they sported real hard against those other sporters.”
“Man, sports is sports sports.”
“Sports sports against the sporting sporterers-”
“Saw sports on the sports sport-”
I never got into sports. I myself am a pro-am Snipe Hunter.
Optical illusions are fuckin’ badass.
SO THIS IS WHERE I’M GOING TO BE WHEN THE ACID KICKS IN
China is like a prelude into a bad pre-apocalptic, totalitarian future no one wants to see. Collapsing super structures, population restrictions, and neighborhoods that inspired the likes of Blade Runner. Of course, the real issue here is not just a combination of pollution alone, but geographical factors that hold the air and smog in the same area. Only a strong storm or wind can carry away the smog--right into the atmosphere.
Not that some parts of the US are any better. We just have more space.
Soooo does anybody get what she’s referencing? No? Guess it’s a southern thing.
Anyhow, Selena was was the name of one of the most famous Mexican-American pop stars. Only woman to ever sell out the Astrodome in Houston in it’s entirety. In her time, she had the hearts of Spanish speakers across Mexico, Texas, and the Southwest in general. She was kind--and not to mention gorgeous too. The finest thing Corpus Christi ever put out into this world.
Her crowd at the Astrodome was actually larger than any crowd Madonna ever had. She really is an inspiration, and if you’re ever in Corpus Christi, you should go see her memorial. It’s right on the water. A statue of a young woman leaning casually against a pillar, looking out across the bay.
She died young in 1995 when she was shot in the back by the president of her fan club. She was only 23.
It’s funny how this stuff gets referenced, passed around, and read lightly. My friend showed me this video laughing, and I could only remember my mother and I listening to her music, and then one day visiting the statue by the bay. Such a strange feeling, particularly when the daily riff raff has something to do with a video of a cat/dog doing something human like.
Think I’m gonna go smoke a cigarette outside now. Could use some fresh air.
Uploaded an image to GIF.
I think it’s funny how a movement can latch onto a little symbol like this.
I think it’s hilarious how big of a debate it becomes outside that aspect.
Oh hey this looks pretty neat. I might get curious and--“Upload cards using your Coin app on iPhone blah blah”
sigh. Well never mind then. Christ, is it so hard to believe some people can’t afford iPhones these days? I’m tired of having to “buy in” to anything I want to get.
I don’t think anyone has (or will ever) take it this far.
Looks more like jam than jelly but WHAT DO I KNOW I’m just some guy.
Allow me to dispel the myth that this is a frat douche. Bros and Fratties talk, walk, and APPEAR The same, but a Bro is much more ideal and one of the most incredible friends you can ever have
A BRO is a bro, bro. Bro has always got your back. Bro holds your fitted ball cap and shoulder while you’re hurling the last of your most recent kegstand. Bro is the one who’s standing in front of the door, making damn sure his other bros don’t drive home drunk. Bro covers your drinks for when you’re broke. Bro is behind you ONE HUNDRED percent in all your crazy ideas and dreams, and recognizes that no idea is too crazy if you can pull it off.
A Frattie, on the other hand, will make you shell for beer and keep the change. A Frattie wants you to come with him to get utterly smashed, but has got class in the morning and makes you be DD or drive while drunk. A Frattie knocked over the family vase and sweeps it behind the closet door. Fratties leave the place a wreck and treat the bartender like shit. Fratties will encourage you to do STUPID things, and leave you dropped or hanging when you need support for your real wants.
A Bro can be one of the most loyal friends out there. Like a big, dumb but well meaning golden retriever (who is actually WAY smarter than you think).
A Frattie is just every fat douche you’ve ever met.
Wow. Looks like the skydiving company that probably owned all the footage got their dick sucked by NBC so that they could stamp their name all over it and make sure it never hits youtube.
Then again, they probably needed to sell that footage to make the money back on the plane they trashed.
This is a video that speaks of class and high taste.
You know I bet it’s pretty hard to remember yp check for the E-brake when you’re sideways but that’s just me, Getting out of the vehicle would be my first worry.
But yeah fuckups all around.
Got my shit mixed up yo.
Yeah, well, it’s kind of his job to fix other people’s fuck ups. Not to create another, bigger fuck up.
So when you call that woman a bitch, you’re fuckin’ up who’s really the fuck up here. Know what I’m sayin’?
You know I’ve always been curious how the nugget people from Mc D’s could live with themselves. Those fry people too. Or the chicken express mascot. (though that’s a more visual pun than anything).
Guess Chicken Express got it right, with the cows and all. Too bad they’re homophobic bigots and aren’t open on sundays.
I want chicken sandwiches on sunday, dammit. Also equal rights. I want to eat my waffle fries guilt free.
That related video list is hella stack.
ALRIGHT I got this. Somewhat.
Basically, a boat this size doesn’t just “shift” into reverse. The engine has driveshafts the size of most cars. The screws (those boat propeller thingys) might fill up a football field. So, first momentum and energy needs to be removed from it all. The engine power is pulled back, and the blades of the engine are stopped using water, air, or something or another. I forget that part. I was drunk when this was explained to me.
Point is, once the screws finally lose their energy, the engine is kicked back on--in the exact same direction it was. That’s right. Basically, the drive-train of the thing just pistons the other way, but the motion of the engine is the same. Think about an exercise bike. Your legs just pump up and down, but the thing can pedal backwards and forwards. Same concept.
Unfortunately, power was restored too soon to the screws, it looks like. Full power was returned to the engine thinking the screws were in the correct position to be reversed. Obviously, they weren’t, and this happened. A giant ass boat barreling headlong into another giant ass boat.
I remember this kid.
I wish I could go back in time, at that exact moment, and appear as myself right now, a full grown adult, and scream in the little fucker’s face, “And what if I told you you’re gonna grow up to be a SOFT PATHETIC CUNT WHO DROPS OUT OF COLLEGE FIRST SEMESTER AND LIVES TO BE A BURGER FLIPPER CAUSE YOUR DADDY WASN’T THERE TO SAVE YOUR PUNK LITTLE ASS, YOU SHIT-HEAD.”
Then again I had issues with a lot of people as a kid so this might be a general overreaction (and a hard sign of unresolved psychological issues).
