stealing george's links....

zombie outbreak hideout no 263:


from the comments:

"According to the Zombie Survival Guide, off shore structures (preferable oil rigs) are the safest place to ride out the Zombie Apocalypse. Zombies can float if they are decomposing but they can't swim or climb ladders. The only way you could be attacked at these structures would be to be swarmed by ten of thousands of zombies on the bottom of the ocean that eventually (chaotically) stack on top of each other to allow access. But that's just crazy because zombies aren't real yet."

and if you haven't been reading georges blog.... well, you should.

don't treat me like an object!

this is all over boingboing and the web in general. 


Forget animals or babies, the latest truly fashionable fetish of the moment is being "objectum-sexual".  This can get seriously weird, as when the lady pictured, who is not only in love with the Berlin wall, but also married to it (she says), describes her reaction to the events of 1989:

“When I saw it happen on TV, I closed the door. I felt shocked,” she says, sadly. “I loved my husband when he was in his prime – it took me 10 years until I could love him again after that. I just didn’t know who he was any more. It’s difficult to explain.”

As difficult as the hoff's jacket?  i don't know.  but read more here at bizzarremag.com, including, obviously, an exposition of the physical aspects of this deviant form of love...

"Winther makes the important distinction that, for OS people, physical union isn’t to be confused with masturbation. “If you masturbate, you see your partner as an object, something only to pleasure you,” she says. “When I have sex with the Berlin Wall, or a model of him, I want to please him too. That’s the big difference.”

And one for grand theft auto fans...

Liberty City Police Face Allegations Of Incompetence, Brutality

Liberty City Cops

Since the surge in crime, which began on April 28 at midnight, more than 830,000 civilians have been murdered—nearly one-tenth of Liberty City's total population. In addition, 35,000 vehicles have been reported stolen, many of which were then driven illegally over sidewalks and pedestrian walkways before plunging into the nearby Humboldt River. And according to startling figures released by local community action group Citizens for a Safer City, drug trafficking has become rampant and prostitution has increased by 800 percent.

"I was shot 14 times on my way to work today, including twice by police," said one Algonquin-area resident. "That is unacceptable."


Was juts remembering this classic site and chuckling to myself....  why not go back and revisit it for such classics as:

  • All the fun of schizophrenia.. in a hat!
  • the world's most harrowing plates
  • the fsck-mammal 3000
  • the world's most dramatically effective baker-infuriating hat
  • and (one for paul) "Goin' Loco!" - the soundtrack to your murderous rampage



I like the way they descend from considered albeit biting satire into full on surreal insanity ("convince imaginary whores your face is a shop... wtf??")



Also, when I become a CEO, I want to be as cool as this guy.
