1. I don’t know about you, but a highlight of my childhood was talking into the fan to hear my robot voice.
2. I think my other three stove burners are becoming jealous of front-right.
3. Every phone should have the same charger.
4. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
5. Double-Stuffed Oreos should just be called Oreos, and regular Oreos should be called Diet Oreos.

This is the new trailer for the down hill mountain biking movie, Where The Trail Ends, and it is amazing. The project started deep in the Gobi desert in China earlier this year. Everyone who knows me knows that biking is my thing, and I totally rip. Kidding. Not really. I rip. Living in the City Ive moved on to fixed gears but I can certainly appreciate the intensity and thrill seeking mentality associated with this down hill culture. This doc is great because it shows the lengths that some of these riders go to in order to find the perfect ride. Much like back country snowboarding, most times the best runs are far off the map, and require a ton of effort just to score one monster shred session.
13. Nuclear Holocaust
“One nuclear bomb can ruin your whole day.” It was true back in the late 1950s, and it’s just as true now. The world could end at any moment thanks to the countless nukes out there, just lying around. According to a 2010 Ploughshares Fund report, 22,000 active nuclear warheads are scattered around the globe. And that number doesn’t include smaller—and therefore more susceptible to theft—nuclear weapons like atomic artillery shells and bunker busters. In truth, we’re still exactly where we’ve been for the past 70 years: one international argument away from the end of the world.
12. Black Holes
Stars collapse on an almost daily basis. When a massive star collapses, it produces an immense gravitational pull along the way, drawing everything in its path—including light—toward its core, like a giant vacuum cleaner from which there’s no escape. While black holes sit at the center of most galaxies, including our own, the real danger comes from a discovery made in the year 2000. “We now have conclusive evidence,” physicist Michael Kaku told ABC News, “that there are wandering black holes—nomads, renegades—and right next to us in our own galaxy.” How long until one of these nomads bumps into the Earth? No one is sure, and it’s a big universe, but everyone agrees that it’s going to happen sooner or later.

College is a wonderful time, heavy on debauchery and light on real responsibility and during those four years (or five, or six, or…) you can get away with pretty much anything. Want to wear a tutu to class in lieu of pants? Hey, why not? Want to get blitzed and streak bare ass naked through campus on a random Tuesday afternoon? Screw it, you’re young and people expect you to be wild. But then college ends, and pretty soon you find out that all those quirky things that you got away with in college aren’t looked upon quite so well in the real world. I’m not judging here –- hell, I am guilty of several of the following myself -– but here are nine things that you did in college that you can’t do in the real world without people thinking you’re pathetic.
9 Sleeping until noon every day
With some creative scheduling you can pull this off in college. People will just think you’re a party animal and will mark you as a fun guy. After all, who functions before noon? But in the real world, people will just think you’re a lazy bum, an irresponsible man child incapable of straightening up and flying right. They won’t care that you are a night owl or that you didn’t get to bed until six in the morning because you were up until dawn drunkenly riding laundry carts down a hill on campus with your friends. They’ll just shake their heads and wonder when Johnny will get himself a nice job and a cubicle to call home every morning. Look, I don’t make the rules. Maybe you shouldn’t have insisted on taking that extra class so you could graduate on time. Sucker.

It has gotten national media coverage on the internet, radio, and television. A man with cancer announced on the popular website Reddit that he only had 51 hours to live. He went to the site, which acts as a huge forum of some sort, so take questions from anyone that wanted to ask him about dying and his life.
This is from Reddit:
On Tuesday I’ll finally end my battle with cancer thanks to Oregon’s Death with dignity act. As part of my preparations I’ve ended my pain medication and am trying to regain what little dignity and clarity I can.
Who I was doesn’t matter. I’m in pain, I’m tired and I’m finally being granted a small shred of respect. Feel free to AMA if you’re so inclined.
Other than answering our questions, what are you going to spend your last hours doing? And most of all, good luck, my friend. May you have the peace you deserve.
I’m going to live. This is as close to travel and meeting new people as I can get now. I’m sorry if that sounds dumb but this is my world tour
Seeing my nephew beat cancer. He had it as a child and the doctors at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia cured it. 9 years and it never came back. A close second, the summer my dad and I saw a baseball game in every AL city.

I get how some people like drugs, they make you feel better for short periods of time, that’s fine and dandy, but why anyone does meth is beyond me, it pretty much turns your face into the bitter beer face guy’s and you get red marks all over, what they are I don’t know I am not a dermatologist but they are gross. Here is an extensive look at normal looking people destroyed by meth in a short time. Don’t do drugs kids, just drink alcohol and party like a rockstar, no drugs though.

National Geographic continues its analysis of the human race by looking at some of the numbers that characterize us as a population and by taking a shot at the face of the most “typical” person on the planet. I swear I am not typical, I am the most unique person to ever exist on planet Earth, yea right.
