Friday Funday CCV

Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

Tiny Cars [del.icio.us]

The title says it all.

The Rather Difficult Font Game [del.icio.us]

Are you a total font geek? I must be, since I got 27 out of 34 right.

Piracy by Adam Buxton [del.icio.us]

This song made me chuckle, although the video itself is pretty lame.

The Website is Down [del.icio.us]

Really, you can’t blame the web guy here.

Charlie The Unicorn [del.icio.us]

With over 25 million views (!), there’s a chance you’ve already seen this. Then again, I’ve watched it 4 times already, so maybe only about 100 people have seen it.

Secular Sunday XIV – Spokane’s Secular Organizations

Today was a big day for me with regard to Spokane’s secular organizations. As some of you know, I’m the organizer of the Spokane Atheists Meetup. Today was our second meeting, but we were also invited to attend the Inland Northwest Freethought Society‘s June meeting.

Remember Secular Sunday X, where I talked about former Lutheran pastor Ray Ideus and his lawsuit against the city? Ray was at the INFS meeting (wearing an awesome T-shirt that said, “Atheist, and proud of it!”) and he’s a really nice guy – although, I didn’t bring up my argument against his lawsuit, so perhaps he’ll change his tune at some point in the future (but I doubt it).

From the 2 atheist meetings I attended today, I can tell that a major shift is about to take place in Spokane: secular groups are preparing to hit the scene in a big way. The past few years have seen many abuses by religious groups that are bad for our country. They have attacked our personal freedoms and managed to wedge religion into aspects of public life that the constitution clearly says must remain secular.

We know that this is going to be a David and Goliath situation (ha!), but we all recognize that we cannot remain silent while our constitutionally guaranteed right are trod upon.

Friday Funday CCIV

Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

How to torment telemarketers with one word [del.icio.us]

Yes.

Mentos Kiss Fight [del.icio.us]

This game is a like Mortal Kombat, but with kissing. Make love not war.

Rollercoaster Rush [del.icio.us]

Since Off the Rails in Friday Funday CLXXI was such a big hit, I thought this would make a fun link for everyone. Try not to get too addicted.

French ERYX Misfire [del.icio.us]

Here’s a video of some French-Canadian infantrymen firing a French-made ERYX anti-tank missile. I don’t even know what to say.

Lost Pig [del.icio.us]

You Grunk. Pig lost. Grunk find pig. No pictures, just words. Grunk not so good with words.

Friday Funday CCIII

Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

Sorry it’s late, I’ve been incredibly busy the past couple of days. Red links are not safe for work.

Petit Pas [del.icio.us]

Were the moon landings faked? This animated video explores one possibility. By the way, if you do think they were faked, don’t let Buzz Aldrin know about it.

Swig & Toss [del.icio.us]

There’s nothing quite like getting drunk and throwing an axe. And now you can!

Pillow Talk [del.icio.us]

What’s your after-sex quirk? Via Phoenix’s blog, so apologies to those who have already seen it.

Music Catch [del.icio.us]

This is an interesting and different idea for a game. Be sure to turn your speakers up for this one, the music is delightfully relaxing.

Censor Bar Art [del.icio.us]

This video is for BPA’s song “Toe Jam.” The song is pretty cool, and the video is fairly clever.

Friday Funday CCII

Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet. Funday links will open in a new window.

Junk Raft [del.icio.us]

2 people are attempting to sail from California to Hawaii on a raft made of junk to bring attention to how we’re polluting the oceans with plastic.

Punches [del.icio.us]

What happens when a production house has a slow motion camera and extra time on their hands? They punch each other in the face.

Big Buck Bunny [del.icio.us]

The video is cute and fun, but I don’t understand the rodents’ motivation for being mean.

xRez: Extreme Resolution [del.icio.us]

I thought I posted this on a previous Friday Funday, but I can’t find it, so perhaps I didn’t. This gallery contains extremely high resolution images, which you can navigate and zoom into down to some incredibly fine detail (especially when you consider from how far away the pictures were taken).

The Ladybird Book of The Policeman [del.icio.us]

This satirical book pokes fun at both education books for children, and modern day police officers.

The Difference Between Cats and Dogs

E-mail forwards aren’t usually my thing, and posting them on blog is certainly out of the question, but when a co-worker sent me this one, I just couldn’t resist. After all, it’s true, right?

Cat Diary

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet.

Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow — but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches.

The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded.
