The automata are definitely creepy. The laughing doll's pure evil. Burn it! Burn it now!

David

Yes, it’s hard to believe there was a time when Baby Laugh-a-Lot brought joy to young girls and didn’t evoke feelings of mind-freezing terror.

It looks like it's about to spray the Joker's laughing gas.

"It is clear why they are hailed as chessboxing champions as their rapid, shrewd chess playing is matched only by the vicious ferocity of their boxing… As Costello took the checkmate it seemed Von Stauffenberg had a narrow escape. After the tournament, Woolgar has recovered enough to explain the pain and pleasure of chessboxing. 'I took an almighty pounding. I have a sense that it didn't do me any good.'"

You do know the plane loses wing is fake? It is viral marketing.

David

Yes, hence the “defies physics”.

"It's a versatile product."

So far we've had bacon mints, bacon salt, bacon-flavored cigarette papers, bacon gumballs, bacon vodka, bacon chocolate -and now bacon flash drives and a bacon lampshade. Anything else?

Anna

And bacon popcorn.

David

And bacon air-freshener.

Bless you, sir. My collection grows. Isn’t it terribly early in your part of the world?

TDK

TDK,

After reading the comments at YouTube, I assumed the plane clip was rigged somehow; but I still haven’t figured out what, if anything, it’s intended to publicise.

The Israeli pilot is, it goes without saying, a major hombre.

TDK

Apparently it sells clothes from KillaThrill

David

Ah. Sadly, I’m not known for wearing hoodies or “urban” skateboard whatnots. I’m more likely to join the Israeli air force.

Love the cubist health department building.

David

Yes, it looks pretty good in profile and when lit at night.

See? I bring you architecture and high culture; it’s not just toilet jokes and things made of salted meat.

I know I've seen those pre-fab, spherical shelters before. Back in the 80's on one of those "It's Incredible"-type TV shows. They were bright red and intended for use as emergency shelters in Antarctica.

Candice

Isn't every shelter in Antarctica an "emergency shelter?"
