I don’t agree with the headline but the sentiment and information is VERY interesting and I agree with 95% of it. It might explain why I keep my social networks so tightly controlled and narrowly defined.

I’m honestly interested in this $40K TV, but none of the reviews seem real… http://t.co/5dLLbUcXhI

So I go to Amazon to see what he’s talking about. It’s a TV. Not just any TV but a $39,997.99 TV. But the beauty of the page isn’t the obscenely expensive TV – it’s the hilarious “reviews” it’s gotten.
From @pattonoswalt via @jeffcarlson, comes this video that Oswalt described as:
Holy moley, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Is this real? I think this is real. My brain just melted:
One of my favourite safety videos not just for the message but the amazing special effects.
Cards Against Humanity says:
“You give us $12. We’ll send you 12 gifts over 12 days.
You give us $12 right now.
We’ll decide if you’ve been naughty or nice.
If you’ve been nice, we’ll send you 12 mystery gifts over 12 days.
We’ll send you the gifts if you’ve been naughty too.”
How can you refuse an offer like that!?
An iPhone simply doesn’t have the screen real estate to satisfy me so I always come back to a dedicated GPS unit. Throw in the need for it to be used on a motorcycle and the ability to pre-map routes and download others and the dedicated models always win.
The wonderfully obsessive Wirecutter site has its pick of the best car GPS – the $220 Garmin Nuvi 2597LMT. They’ve done a great job of showing the pros and cons so, if you buy it, use their Amazon link so they get a bit of money for their efforts.
I adored Pinky and The Brain but this video is almost hard to watch! It’s dialog is seemingly impossible and I’d LOVE to hear the outtakes. I can’t imagine how hard this was or how long it took.
As an added bonus, here is the transcript so you can follow along at home.
I couldn’t but once I saw the chart I thought, “yeah…I’ve never seen a brother doing that gig…”
