The 25 Least Influential People Alive

Welcome to that other category of famous people: the ones who took up more than their fair share of oxygen and offered zero value in return, whose deeds did nothing to change lives of billions worldwide. Their one contribution to society? They make you, Mr. Everyday American, feel indispensable by comparison. This year yielded a particularly rich crop. So without further ado, meet the most useless bastards of 2011.
Well I would argue that Ed Schultz has passed through un-influential and has now become a cautionary anti-example.

The US Army Drill Team Performs
At the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Note that there's no music or drums so they must keep perfect timing on their own.

And of course how could you have a tattoo without bagpipes?

Finally: Japan Creates Lifelike Japanese Robot Girlfriends
Goodbye loneliness, hello robo-love. Ladies look out - your jobs are about to be outsourced to the Fembots.

Could Cheeseburgers Have Existed Before the 20th Century?
Short answer: No

Tomatoes are in season in the late summer. Lettuce is in season in in the fall. Mammals are slaughtered in early winter. The process of making such a burger would take nearly a year, and would inherently involve omitting some core cheeseburger ingredients. It would be wildly expensive-requiring a trio of cows-and demand many acres of land. There's just no sense in it.

A cheeseburger cannot exist outside of a highly developed, post-agrarian society. It requires a complex interaction between a handful of vendors-in all likelihood, a couple of dozen-and the ability to ship ingredients vast distances while keeping them fresh.


Spot The Tranny: Part XIX
Okay this one ought to be easy - or is it?


1960s Office Party
A collection of photos from a 60's Mad Men-esque Xmas party. Could be fake but if so, they're very well done.
