As we are hurtled against our will into summer, we should take a moment to reflect upon the passing of spring. Just kidding. We have no time for such nonsense. We're far too busy trying to find out if we or our loved ones are on Obama's kill list. Can I just say, the last time a president had a shit list, everyone was freakin' pissed? Now, we're too scared to complain lest a CIA drone pays us a visit.
This week our cup overflowth with goodness. We have a couple of crazy awesome re-imaginings of pop culture, a ridiculously cute baby pig goes down, we check in with the spy who broke our hearts, we enjoy a hot pepper, we get a chance to help screw a scumbag, and we play a great game way too long.
Worried about the Euro-zone disintegrating? Or perhaps you're scared that the world's ecological damage is near the tipping point? Riddled with shame over how ugly your genitals are? Whatever darkness has settled on your soul, you can wash it all away with this video. It's like an enema for your psyche.
Hat-tip to Jezebel for bringing this to our attention.
Perennially wonderful graphical humor site The Oatmeal has been locked in a long-simmering war with feckless aggregator Funky Junk (I'm not linking to them). The war escalated this past week. The Oatmeal's response: raise a ton of money and donate it to charity. Godspeed, you magnificent bastard!
Ever wondered what would happen if you played Civilization II for ten years? No? Well, find out anyway.
Incredibly, his save has now reached the year 3991 and the world has devolved into "a hellish nightmare of suffering and devastation".
Three super powers - the Celts, the Vikings and the Americans - have been locked in a seemingly un-endable war for 1700 years. Nuclear strikes have melted the planet's ice caps 20 times, reducing it to a giant irradiated swamp, in which agriculture is nearly impossible.
All attempts to break the stalemate have failed. "Every time a ceasefire is signed, the Vikings will surprise attack me or the Americans the very next turn, often with nuclear weapons. Even when the UN forces a peace treaty," wrote Lycerius.
"Big cities are a thing of the distant past," he added.
God-emperor Sid Meyer himself was shocked by the news, he said as he completed the environmental module for his space ship.
Prior to seeing this video, I'd never heard of GloZell. More's the pity for me - girl's hilarious.
Do you remember awhile back, we learned that our precious democracy had been infiltrated by a long-term sleeper cell of Russian spies? Maybe you don't, but you probably remember pictures of a burning hot red-head popping up in the news for a few months, eh? That ginger spook was Anna Chapman (Née А́нна Васи́льевна Кущенко) Since getting her well-toned ass, along with the rest of the ineffectual spy-ring, kicked out of the USA, she has been held up as a hero and media darling in Russia. And this past week, she looked stunning on a Turkish runaway in couture, flanked by Secret Service-styled gentlemen. You can tell they're supposed to be in the SS because after the fashion show, they got in a fight with some overpriced escorts.
