I'll work on a write up of the fleche (I almost wrote "feltch") I rode last weekend when I've got a little more time. In the meanwhilst:

All links are worksafe unless otherwise noted.

Some troops are putting together a gaming convention set for June in Iraq. It may be a little late to get supplies to them (I'm not sure how efficient the military is at delivering non-essential mail into a war zone, given the difficulty actually getting things like body armor and proper camo into the area), but I encourage you to contact the organizer and offer whatever help is needed.
Ziggurat Con

The gun markets of Pakistan (via [livejournal.com profile] industrialsteve). This guy's conclusion (that "we" can't beat "them" because they're building their own guns) is maybe a little spurious, but this is an interesting little documentary anyway.

Apparently there was a contest to make trailers similar to those in between features in Grindhouse. The winner was supposedly shown along with the film at Robert Rodriguez's local premier. Here it is.
Hobo with a Shotgun

Charles has a licking problem. This video absolutely kills me every time I watch it.

Pencils made from the carbon remains of cremated individuals. Don't you wish you or someone you love were dead so you could get some of these?

Conclusive argument that evolution is wrong. I don't know what to say about this.

More information on depleted uranium ammunition, radioactivity and toxicity.

You guys have almost all seen this by now, but I'm linking it for those who haven't. You must watch this entire video. It's brilliant. Alanis Morissette covers "My Humps" (via [livejournal.com profile] artisticskin).

Weird Will Ferrell video featuring harsh language delivered by a toddler.

Ripping off [livejournal.com profile] madeofmeat's idea of posting a list of links. . .

This is kind of an old clip, but here's Steve Irwin (the Crocodile Hunter) and Ross the Intern from Late Night. It's actually a really cute clip, and features a rubber boa near the end! Irwin is very manly and Australian towards the beginning, but once he figures out what's going on he regains his footing.

2,000 ton Nazi supertank. Trust me, it's exactly as awesome as it sounds. The only way it could be more awesome is if it shot ninjas out of its cannons.

An apparently renowned Kiai (a bullshit martial art that doesn't involve any touching or violence or skill, except the ability to wave and be taken seriously by the extremely gullible) master challenges any MMA fighter to a $5,000 payday, with the obvious results (via James Randi):

Monthly science talks at The Thirsty Scholar.

The deluge – what the world looks like when the ice caps melt, using Google maps. You can decide how many meters the sea level has risen, and watch New York drown.

I love the fact that the military will take neo-Nazis, rapists and retards, and that (collectively) they will charge halfway around the world to fight and die for no reason against a horde of anonymous insurgents willing to do whatever it takes to cut of their heads. . . but a single gay guy so terrifies one of our brave people in uniform that she loses it.

Some phenomenal beatboxing. (via [livejournal.com profile] madeofmeat):

A French skier takes a flag post to the cash and prizes in the midst of the Giant Slalom. Worth it just for the commentary:

At the risk of offending my conservative friends; I've become used to the idea that one of our ruling parties is FAR more divorced from reality than the other. This is not to say at all that the Democrats have a firm grip on the facts, but it's a matter of common knowledge that when it comes to the ability to shrug off reality in its entirety in favor of totally insane ideas, the Republicans take the take. Case in point: From Crooks & Liars; a member of the Texas House is, apparently, anti-Copernicus:
