Thirsty Thursday Good and Bad

If you attempt to create horrible things with no redeeming value, ask yourself “why?” 

Horrible things can be created out of stupidity, when someone has good intentions. Grow a fucking brain, and don’t be all cocky and get in over your head, right?

Sometimes, bad things are made for no reason than to make a buck.  Fuck that.

In the other direction, some folks can be a Pollyanna and they need to have their rose colored glasses forcibly removed before someone smacks them upside the head.

What do you think about this stuff?  Tell us in the forums if you like.

Here are some good things, and some not so good things.  You decide.  Are they intentionally bad for humor, or are the bad for some other reason?  The best ones are sometimes the really bad ones.  

Here's some good.

Animation has come a long way, huh.  Actually, just speed up the film or slow down the exposure rate (Time lapse) and give it blurry edges, and it tricks your mind into thinking it’s a miniature.  Here’s Busy Brooklyn.

Nic Cage, America’s most under-appreciated actor.  Here are 40 photoshoppped face transplants.  You had me at #5.

Botched Fresco fun via our lovely internets.

Speaking of bad contibutions, why not let a bicycle ride you for a change?  Strap yourself in to a bike via your package, and for gawd’s sake, don’t fucking crash.  Or maybe you should.  Your head will take the brunt of it and maybe knock some sense into you?

Speaking of bad things, a hurricane can cause serious damage and flooding, but even if it downgrades to a tropical depression, it can still overwhelm levees with flooding if it takes its time.  Is there a lesson in this we can learn?

More bad news: Neil Peart plays The Ramone’s Hey Ho!

What do you think about this?  Bad creations of horrific events, using children as photo  models.  Now I understand that there are artists who want to make their viewers think about things, but come on.  You are whoring out the innocence of the young here.  For a paycheck.  Dude.

In another direction, Mars rover Curiosity turned the tables on the Martians and deployed its laser beam, blasting a rock with 14 millijoules of energy 30 times in ten seconds, showin’ them who’s boss.

Here’s a great quote, by a big man.

“Our Founding Fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity is fleeting and that this country’s principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and emotions of the times." 

Or, give Santorum a hand, ladies and ermm, gentlemen.

Maybe there are things that shouldn’t be uncovered, like this buried sex vault from years ago?

Here’s a fake show that deconstructs the Tea Party.  Good or bad?  Share your thoughts  in the forums.

Now for some horror tales, done with a lot of heart in the intention, and horribly executed.  Thanks for the find, CBZ.

Speaking of witch….and ghosts, here is my own horrible contribution to society.

In another direction, here’s the alternate opening to a recent, great movie, from a fun site: iwatchstuff.

You see, there are good things we do to contribute, or try to, and then there are ways to go about it that actually detract from our human agreement to help each other.  That can be done malevolently, or it can be done from simple ignorance or stupidity.  The difference between ignorance and stupidity is that ignorance can be fixed, but stupidity is like ugliness: it goes bone-deep.  Let’s teach the ignorant ones, and just smile and nod at the stupid ones, then chase them around with the garden hose.

Cheers!  Friday is tomorrow. Best day of the week: anticipation of free time.

God Help You.

God Help Us All.

---willies out.

OK, One More For You.

Twelve trip tips:  Hotels.  Warning, some of these will be gross.

#7 is genius: (How to get out of cancellation fees. I didn’t know this one), and #9 is obvious (Don’t give out your CC numbers over the phone late at night to the “front desk”).
