Beware of Robot Monkeys

Posted in Animals on Tuesday February 20, 2007 by andtheivy

Monkey controls a robotic arm with his brain.  What WILL they think of next?

“The monkey in the video has a chip in its brain that controls a robotic arm. He uses the arm to feed himself a piece of yellow food. Probably a banana. What’s in the deleted scenes?”

Red Bull’s Flugtag

Posted in Design, Wicked Funny Pictures on Sunday February 18, 2007 by andtheivy

Red Bull Flugtag USA.  I love it.

1991 – The First Flugtag
The first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1991. Since then, more than 35 Flugtags have been held around the world — from Ireland to San Francisco — attracting up to 300,000 spectators. The record for the farthest flight-to-date currently stands at 195 feet set in 2000 at Flugtag Austria. The U.S. record stands at 78 feet set in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2004.

Teams are judged on three criteria: distance, creativity and showmanship. What constitutes a craft is purely up to the imagination of the participating teams. Past Red Bull Flugtag entries have included a pregnant cow, a diaper-delivering stork, a pimped-out Cadillac, a giant Oompa Loompa, and yes folks — a lobster named Larry.”

No News.

“Television news shows keep us informed of what is going on in the world around us. Could you imagine a day without any news?

Well, sometimes such a day occurs.
When there just is no news.”

Five-Star Prison Cell

Posted in News on Thursday February 8, 2007 by andtheivy

“That’s a jail cell in the F1 section of the Aranjuez prison in Spain, designed to let imprisoned parents to live with their children!

Welcome to a jail Spain says is the only the one in the world with cell units for families: Disney characters on the walls, a nursery, a playground for toddlers. The idea is for kids to bond with their imprisoned parents while young enough to be oblivious to their surroundings, and for inmates seeking rehabilitation to learn parenting skills. The prison in this town 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of Madrid has 36 cell units for families, although now only 16 are occupied, most with Latin Americans. The units of the special F-1 section are known in jail jargon as ‘five-star cells’.”

Best Short Joke Ever

Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday February 8, 2007 by andtheivy

“Say No to Crack is having a little fun contest to find out the best short joke ever. Many have been submitted.For example:

A dog limps into a bar and says, “I’m looking for the man that shot my paw!”

What’s green, lives in your refridgerator and sings? Elvis Parsley.

Little Jonny went to the police claiming he was constantly beaten by his parents. Child services looked into it and found the whole family had abuse problems back generations. The judge didn’t know what to do! Finally, he realized the perfect solution. He gave Jonny to the Chicago Bears. They never beat anyone.

Ah, kindergarten humor. Precious!” Link
