The Most Mesmerizing GIF You’ll See All Weekend

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a human body in horizontal slices. My — and thousands of others’ — initial reaction to this animated GIF is to think/comment about the apparent presence of male genitalia. Also, do the buttocks remind anyone else of a delicious rump of ham? This just goes to show that the internet […]

Microsoft Glass [Parody]

While Microsoft may have plans for a Google Glass competitor, the company has yet to confirm anything. For all we know, the project may have long been scrapped. But that doesn’t mean the interwebz can’t have some fun poking fun at a possible Microsoft Glass, right? 😉 If you’re unable to view the video for whatever reason, […]

Friday PicDump, 05.24.2013

I haven’t been able to take too much pictures this week because I have a nagging cold. Not the fever-aching-gawd-kill-me-now kind, but the annoying type that makes me cough like I have a 2-pack-a-day habit and go through half a box of tissues a day from all the snot that comes oozing down my nose.

When Did (Or Will) Your Looks Peak?

I came across an interesting infographic BuzzFeed published yesterday with the title “Men Believe Female Beauty Peaks At Age 29.” The infographic includes interesting age-related beauty factoids and survey results in addition to the obviously-designed-for-bait post title, so I thought it would be worth a mention here.
