Ever wake up with a burning pee or enormous growth on your lip but don’t feel like going to the doctor because you’re too hungover to remember the disease infested partner you smashed hips with last night. Well your troubles may soon be over. The eSTI2 project managed by Tariq Sadiq from St. Georges University in London just got a 6.5 million dolllar grant to develop chips that can test saliva, urine or blood for STDs and HIV. No need to spit and pee on your precious Iphone, you would do it on the chip which would plug into the phone, the app on the phone would process the results. At least thats the idea. The other idea is that these would be widely available at pharmacies and vending machines. This won’t go to market for another 7-10 years at least, so keep wrapping it up and heading to the doctor in the meantime and remember shaving your pubes doesn’t cure crabs. Happy swinging!
Cool time-lapse footage of this year’s New York City Marathon at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the starting point of the race since 1976. This is exact evidence that we are just a bunch of mold infesting this Earth, when you look at ourselves from above we are identical to 1 celled organisms, yea I went there, sorry for blowing your mind, be right back I’m going to drop more acid. Bonus: helicopter hovering like a dragonfly at 0:17.
Time Warner announced on Friday it’s going to offer in theater movies on demand to your living for $50 a pop by mid 2011. Of course only Time Warner movies will be available. The move makes sense because movie goer numbers have declined with so many in home options. But if you want to see a movie that badly $50 seems way to high. Personally, I think that going to the movies is only worth it for seeing visually stunning movies on a big screen. With the amount of options we have at home, there is never a shortage of something good to watch. Only true movie junkies and the people who have serious dough like in the pic above will see this as worth it. The bootleg market must be loving it though, no more worrying about getting caught with a camcorder slouched in your seat. Movie theaters are obviously pissed, but they need to wake up, start serving booze and realize their future lies in live HD sports on those huge screens. Some do it now with no booze, but not nearly enough.
Just the very idea of a music video that features the epic conflict between flamethrower and fire extinguisher piqued our curiosity. But watching this clip in all it’s slow-mo glory is truly epic. The band and song title are Dancing Pigeons – Ritalin.
We have given you a ton of gnarley extreme sports, but this is pretty hard to top. Let us introduce you to speedriding, speedflying, and or wingsuitflying in the area of Wengen, Switzerland. It looks straight out of a movie and how close he comes to the mountains in unreal. If you are going to watch one thing today, watch this, you won’t be sorry.
I have to trade my generic Civic in for one of these bad boys, my Civic just isn’t turning heads like I thought it would. Apparently I have to strap a dead rhinoceros corpse to the grill if I want to get people to check out my whip. If anyone has a dead rhino and 200 pounds of super glue let me know so I can get my car up to par, thanks.
Say what you will about Obama, but one thing is for certain, he knows how to break it the F down. He was in Mumbai and decided to join the kids and get his groove on, of course 50 Cent In Da Club was added to make the video that much cooler.
Direct report from the Associated press.
“He appeared to resist when students from Holy Name High School in Mumbai approached. Eventually, Obama gave in, got up and strutted his stuff, too. He jumped around a little and made awkward sawing movements with his arms.”
When you die you only have one thing left to remain for people to come see, your headstone in the cemetery. While most of us normal people go with the generic rectangular piece, some people decide to go all out and make sure people take a look at their place of rest. When I die I think I’m going to request a 50 foot tall life size recreation of Godzilla.
Los Angeles based artist Pei-San Ng creates art by playing with matches, something you were told not to do as a kid. Each piece of art, or sculpture if you will, is composed of thousands of individual matches. The interesting component to this type of art is the option to light that baby up. During exhibits Pei-San Ng will ignite the sculpture and let it burn baby burn, awesome creativity. You can visit Pei-San Ng’s site found here for more of his work.
