Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Welcome to Thursday all. Now that Balloon Boy is okay we can return to regular moron programming. But first let's take a moment to remember the original balloon man, Lawnchair Larry, who flew the skies of Los Angeles back in 1982. Yep, he was a moron and not the good kind.

Etsy vs. Regretsy
Apparently there's a site called etsy.com where you can sell your homemade craft items like scarves, toaster cozies, etc. Well just because something is hand-made doesn't mean that it's useful, any good or even tasteful. And that's lead to a new site, regretsy.com, that showcases the worst items of etsy. For just $350 you can buy this handcrafted fish-squirrel. And for $19 you can get a custom vulva keychain. [Note - some of the items are NSFW]

The Star Wars Uncut Project
Okay here's a project where they've divided the original Star Wars into 15 second clips and ask people to recreate the clips and upload their version. When all the scenes are done, they'll stitch them together to get a completely remade version of the movie. So if you have a video camera and feel creative, this is your chance to outdo Lucas. Based on the trailer the bar seems to be set pretty low.
