Paradoxical yet humorous...

Truly a beautiful computer monitor...

I WANT THIS! So beautiful, so stunning…the resolution is a jaw-dropping 19200 x 2400 pixels! It's also only 2.5" thick! This is the perfect super-model computer monitor that every computer dork dreams about. There is no price listed on the product page, but I’m pretty sure you’ll have to give up your first-born child to be able to get a hold of one of these monitors. Awesome, just awesome- I mean look at this thing! Click here to find out more.

Black man "looting," white couple "finding?"

This is two pictures the Associated Press has separately published, of looters in the wake of Katrina. The photo of a black man refers to his "looting," and the photo of a white pair refers to their "finding."

I remember seeing this picture (it’s a real picture, this really happened) on the Daily Show on Comedy Central- and regardless of what anyone says, it’s a fact the media has a connotation with its way of presenting news stories.

Bill Gates has computer problems...

Check out this video of Bill Gates & Conan Obrien. It’s always funny when the “biggest computer guy in the world” has problems with his own computer product(s). P.S. I love Conan Obrien’s sense of humor, his talk show is the king of randomness.

Drunk driver jumps into back seat?

A drunk driver stunned by pursuing police decided to jumping into the back seat of his car with his three passengers, leaving his car to zigzag out of control on an Australian Outback road.

One of the car's passengers suffered minor injuries when she panicked and jumped from the driverless car while it was still rolling 25 miles per hour.

The runaway car then rapidly lost speed, allowing a policeman to get out of his vehicle, chase it down on foot and bring it to a halt by applying the brake.
The drunk driver was charged with resisting arrest and driving under the influence of alcohol.

This story is funny on so many levels (except for the drunk driving). I would of LOVED to seen this with my own eyes. Especially the cop chasing after the car by foot. Great stuff. Click here to read the article.

Office Space Special Edition DVD...

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend- don’t overlook “Office Space” the movie special edition gift set. If you have not seen this- let alone own this movie, you are missing out on one of the funniest movies ever. That is not an overstatement either. No doubt, I rank this movie on my top five list of all-time. It comes out November 1st. Only $24.99.

Surround sound with a pair of headphones?

Everyone has heard or seen the Dolby Digital logo at a movie theater. It is the most common way in which movie theaters/DVDs play the sound portion of movies. Check out this demo on their website where you can get the “feeling” of 5.1 surround sound with just a pair of headphones. The video with the indy race cars is neat-o. Pretty cool stuff.

It’s funny to scare people at random…

This video is a “mini-reality show” that apparently never made it to the networks, its called, “Scare Me.” The premise is that these college kids go around and scare people. That’s it, that’s the bottom line. It’s pretty funny to watch peoples reactions in this video- however, I can see why this would never succeed as a real television show. Nevertheless, extremely entertaining to watch.
