Dept. of Unusual Criminal Clothing

A bomb, a bra and a brainless criminal

Mr Woodruff wasn't only put in the slammer for handling forbidden explosives and having metamphetamine in his SUV.

He was put behind bars on the offense of indecent exposure since the police found him all asleep in his SUV dressed in a pink bra and thongs.

After all - pink ain't going with a bald head. Read all the stuff at The Smoking Gun.

Dept. of Sincere Moviemaking

Do you want to make a blockbuster?

Have you ever thought of what do define a perfect movie? An academic in Britain have set out the the major ingredients for perfect film and there she puts the action as a perfect match for making the blockbuster of your dreams.

But when realizing that the study was paid for by Diet Coke one can wonder what the heck these academics is doing when they´re not doing paid-for-science...

Dept. of Unuseful Design

It's a case for God's (or Bill's) sake!

The art of modding is taking more and more strange ways... if some bright-head don't get the idea to make a case out of cardboard then someone is spending amounts of time to build strange cases. For me myself it's more important that the damn comp works and to modd the GUI... I mean - I look at the screen not on the case.

This might be the most common way to modd the case... in my eyes just as ugly as the gray box. As a brand-consultant I can wonder what Ferrari is saying when their logo is used in even the ugliest design

This is the worst modd I ever seen... this guy (no woman should waste this time on an Athlon) has built the whole computer inside this blonde version of Lara Croft.

But it´s pretty cynical that he put the sockets between the legs of her. And I can wonder where to push to get her going...

Dept. of Not-Reading-News

I bought the app therefore I'm allowed to steal

Althought I'm not feeling any warmer feelings for RIAA but this article from Wired rather shows that some people shouldn't have access to anything that moves and can be used in wrong way...

It's really fantastic that people tend to think that if they pay somewhat a hundred bucks for an app they are allowed to use it to file-share...

Do people not reading news? Is people trading in their brains for being American?

Dept. of Things-Needed-In-War

If you shall kill - choose the right groove

As a soldier one probably gets bored just wandering around and waiting for some action. Listening to the sound of the night or the noise from the people you battled. Why not take the opportunity either to enjoy some good music from back home or take the chance to educate yourself listening to an audiobook?

The AK-MP3 then is what the doctor ordered. Put it in the special made belt or at the ammo and you can raid the next village in company of some good southern country or why not let the Ride of Valkyrians make you a killer?

Some other proposals of music for the gunning groovejet: Rod Stewart, Baby Jane ("Optimism is my best defense"); Don Henley, The End Of The Innocence ("Arm chair warriors often fail"); Kenny Rogers, Coward Of The County ("Sometimes you've got to fight when your a man"); Gwar, Have You Seen Me ("Dead kids, they make me feel almost hard. Go get one from the school yard. He bled like a stuck pig"); The Kinks, 20th Century Man ("The wonderful world of technology, napalm, hydrogen bombs, biological warfare"); Megadeth, Loved To Death ("If I can't have you, then nobody will. And since I won't, I'll have to kill"); Metallica, Master Of Puppets ("You're dedicated to how I'm killing you"); Exodus, Choose Your Weapon ("Obeying no law but our own, violence is what we promote"); Grateful Dead, Greatest Story Ever Told ("I asked him for mercy, he gave me a gun").

Dept. of OuterSpace And Mail

Start counting words

Russian spaceengineers will make mucho dinero on being The Outerspace Postal Service. The postman will work with the international spacestation ISS in the district.

For about $20k/stamp you can be able to send mail to and from space. I wonder if this stamp will be a big hit among the stamp collectors of the world? I mean - when the Three Skilling Banco is sold for 2,3 million there's truly a chance that this stamp will be useful, since philatelists is a strange breed.

Dept. of Severe Punishment

Ruling of the court:

...thou shalt live at your parents house. This truly severe punishment got Adrian Lamo, the famous slackerhacker with the lifestyle of a drifter, when finally got caught for one of his attacks.

This guy is also called the "Homeless hacker" and his hacking escapades have not been in the dark - his mission was to show how easy one could take over big computersystems and LANs. But NYT didn´t see his Samaritan-way and got the feds to hunt him down. And now he is sentenced to move back into the old house.

Poor kid. Shouldn't this kind of cruel punishments be forbidden by the Genevaconvention?

Dept. of Strange Behaviors

Napping at the bank

It can´t be easy when being that kind of lost that you go into a bank, into the restroom and take off your pants, underwear and socks, and then go out and lay down on a sofa and fall asleep. The tired Largo-streaker did.

He was charged for "exposure of sexual organs" and "burglary" (?). I still wonder what he did steal.

The people on the pic has nothing to do with the story. I think...

Dept. of Information Service

Not a Page 3-girl

One can wonder what sort of news this guy delivered since he did it in the nude. He was stopped for a broken tag light but surely did darken when having to pay $140 for indecent exposure - and it surely won't look good in his resumé as a paperboy.

The picture has nothing to do with the topic - first of all: it's a "bobby" - a british police and more over - the guy don't carry a camera.

Another thing: if a british policemen is called "bobby" - what do they call the women in uniform? "Bobbit"? [Ouch...]

Dept. of Good Taste [temporarily closed]

Nude for the peace

Yoko Ono, who was nude for peace together with John Lennon during their "bed-ins" will strip again for "The Peace". Truly it would not be to attractive pics since this strange woman is 70 year old.

Myself I would be more peaceful watching Lisa Edelstein strip off her clothes, surely it would be very peaceful if she co-stripped with Emily Procter...

[update]So the Ono stripshow have been carried out: she was inviting the audience to cut bits from her clothes and send it to someone they love. Makes sense? Not at all. And her explanations is rather... peculiar and really out of the blue.

Dept. of Lazy Gov

No need for hurry

FTC, the American govt's leg on the trade, have started trying to get rid of a big spammer and spoofer.

But they did start the whole thing after receiving 46000 complaints.

Is it possible that the tax-money will be better spent when waiting?

Dept. of Statistics

Toplists are listed

As a non-american it is really fascinating with the americans love for lists. That country must be the most statistical transparent of all. The biz-paper Forbes have a special section for all the lists and here is lists of Top-Earning Dead Celebrities as well as Best Cities For Singles. Not to forget is the important list of America's Best- And Worst-Dressed Billionaires, surely a list that one can't live without. World's Best Airport Lounges 2003 is surely a list that makes sense as well as Best New England Inns 2002. The list with The Most Overpriced Places is surely something to write out and carry in the pocket, if ending up in Honolulu by mistake.

A list that I surely think is wrong is Best Blogs. Why? Neither of my blogs are there :).

Dept. of Dumb Dumb Spammer

Mr Moore shouldn't file to be member of MENSA

In the everlasting game of "dumbest ass in the world" George Allen Moore Jr is surely one who make a run for the top. This guy have sued a anti-spamgeek for harrassment since mr Moores name and adress have been put on a website. Why? Because mr Moores company use the "bulkmail"-way to advertise their goods. But the owner of Maryland Internet Marketing Inc. won't be called spammer since he mean that he is outsourced the marketing of his products (and therefore obviously can't be responsible for the methods used). I like that kind of logic - it's fresh somehow, not relaying on traditional sets of logic. *grin*

His company is selling software for anti-virus from Symantec (Dr Norton) and the AV-monolith have learned that the versions of Norton mr Moore is making money on is pirated. But - do not be worried: he claims it isn't. I can almost feel that his is rather cool even though he must be one of the most stupid re-sellers in the world.

Dept. of Humour and Hoaxes

Being had?

You can research whether you've been fooled at Top 100 Hoaxes Of All Time. Did you think that there was a way to grow spaghetti? Then you're had. Sucker!

Dept. of Don'tBelieveEverythingYouRead

I want my comp to make coffee

And with the George Foreman USB iGrill it might not be so far away... but hey - this surely sounds a little good to be true but if you not know how to spend $100 this might be the way. And if it's working I can as an innervision see the thick fog of barbeque in the next comp.convention. And finally the geek won't be in danger of catching vitamin deficiency.

But hey - look at the date when it's published before you hit the button...

I can't really figure out why the thing got that name. If someone have an idea: kick me a mail

Dept. of New Ways of Transportation

The cargo guy

The dude Charles McKinley did want to go home but hadn't got the money. So he did get a bright idea: why not go as cargo. And as lucky as an ass he did get into the cargobay that both were warm and under pressure. Then he was bought right to the door of his parents by a ground shipping company.

What's his next move? Trying to be emailed?

Dept. of Making BIG Mistakes


Someone don't get this month's salary. The $239 million satellite, scheduled to be launched and fully working in 2008 was dropped and damaged. Surely something to recall when dropping a glass in the sink.

Dept. of Monetary Dumbasses

"Normal" policy is only accepting $100-bills

The clerk of Food Lion in Roanoke Rapids must be blind or somewhat retarded since he didn't knew the policy... and was giving $50 in change for a $200-bill. The bill had a pic of Bush on it and had "We like broccoli" printed as slogan.

The police is hunting the guy who paid for $150 in groceries but hopefully they did arrest the clerk for dumbness. Read the strange history in

Dept. of Electorial Stupidities

Russkis voting for Harry Potter as governor

The region of Sverdlovsk was really struck by the force of democracy when people struck the candidacies out in the election to governor. Instead the ballots did get votes naming local celebrities and about twenty votes were cast on Harry Potter.

They learn fast, the russians. Politics is almost as fantastic as the stories of a young wizard.

Dept. of Strange Ways To Express Artistic Ambitions

Art is... what?

The site of YANOBE KENJI surely puts the question of what art is in the spotlight. The guy have made some sort of anti-radiationsuit and went to Chernobyl, and some other really strange things are made visible on his site.

Art is (part deux)

This is even stranger than the Japanese technocrat... Either you get locked into the asylum or you are an artist with installations as specialty.

Dept. of Burying The Idi'ts

Thank God for the .com-death

Surfing on Ghost Sites really make me think that alot of all sites which have ceased to exist did that as a blessing for all of us Netsurfers. And for me, lurking the net since 1995 there's alot of the sites I recognize but very few I miss.

There've been much crap during the years...

Dept. of No Hamster Dance

Not a good rave

In Greece the turtles likes the disco but as the ravers they die by dehydration. Or it might be that they are lured to disco death because of all the neonlights and disco-flashing which make them go the wrong way. But hey, do not youngsters always do?

Dept. of How To Be Put In The Slammer 101

Trying to set a record?

Jeffrey Allan Puttman probably trying to get in the Guiness Book of Records, in the category "Most arrests". The guy was arrested for the 176th time and this just a day after released from his previous staying in jail.

Surely seem like the American correctional system truly works sometimes...

Dept. of This Policeman Should Go To Another Hospital

Sex, drugs and talentshow

The 51-year old Ron Brafford, senior vicepresident for Tallahassee Memorial Hospital was found crashing his car while talking in the cellular. That probably normal but although he was drunk and the police found coke in the car all went astray. And when they found out that the guy had a broken toe they really started wonder what was going on. But mr Brafford told them that the broken toe hadn't stopped him from dancing the night away at the fund-raising talent show.

Probably the cocaine was for painkilling purposes too.

Dept. of Wet Dreams

A kiss is not a kiss

When Madonna kissed Britney and Christina A at the MTV Awards a deep cultural shock went through all of the media.

There's not a paper in the world that would miss the opportunity to write some essay-like articles about the trend of girl-kissing-girl. A rather hilarious flic is when the 55-year old Stevie Nicks, original member of Fleetwood Mac, is calling the kiss the "most obnoxious television moment ever". Yeah right. When the devil gets old he becomes religious.

This one is truly the most strange - trying to dig into the cultural ground of this kissing. Surely filled with a pretty bunch of ignorant patriarchalistic sayings even though trying to make the guys look bad who thinks it's attractive when girls kisses girls.

Dept. of Unique Leisure Pursuit

Say Cheese

A strange lad is truly this guy who runs around naked and taking pictures of women and their shocked expressions.

A newspic of this kind always makes me wonder some important things: what kind of baseball cap do he wear? And haven´t the lawofficers in Columbus, Ohio nothing better to do than to try to catch a nude photographer.

And finally: have anyone wondered about the "shocked expressions" of the photgraphed women? It might be that the guy is well-hunged ;).

Dept. of Stupid Psychoanalytic Theorem

Peaches redefines humanity

The popstar and self-centered slutty Peaches have redefined the theory on basic human needs: food, sleep, shelter, belonging... and sex. Ericson surely turns in his grave.
