How to impress people with your dinosaur killing skills

I don't hunt, but if I did, I'm pretty sure I would only hunt Velociraptors. Fortunately, I don't have to go through the whole process of getting a permit, hiring a tracker, hiding in the woods, masking my scent with Raptor Musk (which stings the nostrils worse than Sex Panther), engaging in a life-and-death battle, cleaning my kill and mounting it's head on my wall.

For only $521 (as of 9pm Wednesday) I can streamline the whole process and get this full-size raptor head on ebay. I don't really know how it was acquired but apparently it was killed legally in Jurassic Park.

Worth a thousand words

Sometimes we just need to look at a picture that is so far from making sense in order to make sense of our own lives. With that, I give you my new favorite site: Picture is Unrelated, where you can find gems like the ones below. The fact that there's no context for any of the pictures on the site makes it that much better.

They are always looking for submissions, so if you come across a picture where the only possible reaction is WTF?, then by all means email it to them.

Best bowling shot ever

You've got to watch this amazing bowling shot. I'm not sure what the announcers are saying, but they're obviously impressed as well,

We dig evolution...more than Turkey

I think that, as Americans, we should pick one country and try to be better than them at everything we do. For me, that country is Turkey.

When it comes to sports, we're in pretty good shape. Do a quick Google Search for Turkish Sports Legends and you won't find too much (unless you consider arm wrestling a sport)

So needless to say, I was pretty excited to see this graph ranking the public acceptance of evolution in 35 countries and the only country we beat was Turkey.

Look out Cyprus...we're coming after you next!

Man's New Best Friend

I remember watching The Empire Strikes Back as a child and wondering what kind of pets AT-ATs would be.

Thanks to these great photos from NickIsConfused we can see how precious the little guys are. Some days I wish I had an AT-AT, if for no other reason than to silence those yapping terriers that walk by my window every morning.

This definitely wouldn't work in Jersey

Along with the right to carry guns in public, I feel like it's our right as Americans to swear in public. However, there's a movement afoot to keep those of us who like to impress their friends with their spot-on Gordon Ramsey impersonation down.

15-year-old McKay Hatch of Pasadena thought he was on to such a good thing when he started the No Cussing Club at his high school that he's now taking it up a notch. He successfully lobbied the LA County Board of Supervisors to issue a proclamation officially making the first week in March No Cussing Week.

So if you see someone wearing on of the No Cussing Club's gaudy orange t-shirts or carrying one of their How Many Hugs Do You Need cards in their wallets, be sure not to ask them how much they spent on that f#@%*n c#*p.
