As Vitamin-T stepped up to the plate, I’ll have to share the video I was not talking about at lunch, enjoy.

Spotted this today and laughed hard enough to pass it on. It’s disturbing that I think I’ve seen almost all of these movies.

In case you were as curious as I was, Wikipedia has a pretty awesome article, pictures included.

I found this article that was posted today. It seems to address some of the lunch discussion on “When and why did the mammoth die?”

Wishing you a metal Christmas

posted by Diomedes on 2009.12.10, under Diomedes

I’ve made it a sort of hobby to collect ridiculous awesome heavy metal Christmas songs. Each year I go out and buy another album or two. This year I found Raskaampaa Joulua, it’s all in Finnish (I think) but there are some real classics on there. However, for the most over the top Christmas song, I need to once again give the nod to Karkis for Secret Satan. If you watched it last year when I sent it out, enjoy it again. If this is your first time seeing it, prepare yourself for four and a half minutes of awesomeness.

There have been sharply divided opinions on this topic at the lunch table, so I figured I’d link this article spotted in Science Daily discussing the increased brain activity associated with internet usage. I realize this isn’t google usage per se, but they do explicitly mention internet searches as one of the stimulating functions.

Practical jokes that toe the line

Japanese prank shows reach new heights in this clip. The hysterical laughter from the audience as the man begs for his life was my favorite part.

I would have listened to this kind of poster as a kid.

Spotted on BoingBoing.
