So What Is This 'Internet' Thing?

In between smart military stuff and pr0n links we do try and occasionally be educational. So sit back and watch this video and then you'll understand why all the kids are into the 'Internet' these days.


And in unrelated news here are the Top 10 Reasons We Should Revive the Dark Ages.

Sure it sounds a lot better than you'd expect and might even be a step up for some. But I'm still not convinced it's time for a Dark Ages 2.0. Mostly because of the hygiene thing along with plague and witchcraftery.

The He-Man Joo Haters Club
After Helen Thomas got quit-fired for her anti-semitic comments, guess who was there to console her? Rosie O'Donnell and longtime Jew-disapprover Jimmy Carter.

Tip for the morons: Bodies take Longer To Dissolve In Acid Than You Expect
So when it absolutely positively has to be dissolved by tomorrow morning, go with the wood chipper. Because even sulfuric acid can take a while:

Experiments conducted on partial pig carcasses, a widely accepted stand-in for human bodies, showed that it takes days to melt flesh in sulfuric acid. Adding water to the acid speeds up the process, dissolving muscle and cartilage within 12 hours and turning bone to dust within two days, suggesting that the technique could render a corpse completely unrecognizable.
