Supposedibly (yes it's a word), This chart is based on a real study linking college students favorite bands to what they scored on the SATs. What I immediately noticed was how I hate almost all of these bands. the next thing I noticed is that my SAT score (a meaty 1250) seems a bit to close to the high end of this chart. Are kids getting dumber these days or does the SAT now include a physical challenge?
...wait did I say real study? what I meant was facebook study, so I guess this is about as accurate as that pirate treasure map my mom made for me when I was 9. Turns out there weren't any gold doubloons in my sock drawer.
I have a wife that plays soccer, so it's hard for me to rip the upcoming Womens Professional Soccer league without risking a night on the couch. But come on, skorts! Seriously ladies? who were the marketing geniuses that came up with this?

thanks to the beautiful game for the find

Why give him a new heart, just so he can hunt you down and kill you? Because if you didn't he'd still hunt you down and kill you.
How much longer do I have to wait for this movie? This is like the 4th "new" trailer I've seen. At this point they might as well have released the whole thing in webisodes.
Ok... I know it's dorf meets nerdcore, but quite frankly I don't care. MC Lars new album This Gigantic Robot Kills is available in stores and itunes today. It's a great album, and I'm not just saying that because he's the pudgy white MC I've always wanted to be. check it out, or ask me to play it the next time you're riding in my sentra.

Here's Mickey Rourke giving a speach after winnning a spirit award (I thought only cheerleaders got those?). Can you imagine how awesome his speech would have been if he had won an oscar last night? It would have been a little different though, there's no way Eric Roberts gets into the Oscars.

This fan made Half Life 2 movie is just incredible. Supposedly the purchase brothers made it for less than 500 dollars by shooting it all digitally and blending in effects ripped right out of the game. I can't wait for the next episode.

I've always thought that one of the more cleverer (sure it's a word) story telling techniques used in the Watchmen is the comic within a comic called the Tales of the Black Freighter. It may make the Watchmen a bit harder to read the first time but on the second or third reading you're able to recognize how much the pirate tale relates to the events happening in the main story.
I'm not so sure I'm a big fan of a stand alone DVD, I'm kind of hoping we'll see some directors cut DVD or blue ray that is able to interweave the comic into the main story. I guess including the story into the main film would have pushed running time to almost 4 hours and have you seen the size of the small coke at a movie theater? No way I can hold out 4 hours without a potty break.

Would you hate him less if he played for the USMNT instead of the Lakers?
Maybe one day we'll get to see that happen. But I tell you what's got to happen first. First we have to stop losing players to the Sweedish and Danish soccer leagues because they're willing to give our MLS all-stars contracts worth more than 80,000 dollars a season.Special Bonus (for mark) pictures of super WAG Danielle Loyd. She's writing some sort of tell all book that has all the EPL boys nervous.

Is it weird that he's wearing a jersey underneath another jersey?

This had me in tears.
Mutant Power: Jazz Hands!
You'd think the Empire would offer child care services
Do they just hand out leia outfits to the first 30 girls that show up?
That outfit looks impractical for fighting crime or walking through a sea of dorks

A road construction sign that read "Zombies Drools" and "Jalopnik Rules" had motorists in a dangerous situation on Interstate 405 through Bellevue Tuesday night. A Washington State Patrol Trooper noticed the reader board sitting on the side of I-405 at the Wilberton Tunnel with the unusual message and called Seattle dispatch. WSDOT spokesperson Jamie Holter said she believes someone did this to be funny.
"They think it’s funny but it’s extremely dangerous," explained Holter. "First, they have to manually change the reader board so they are standing out on the side of the freeway putting their life in danger. Second, drivers think there are either Zombie’s ahead or it’s a joke, so they stay in the lane. The reader board should be warning drivers their lane is about to end as machinery is in the way. If drivers don’t know to change lanes then it becomes very dangerous."

Wait a minute.... did a spokesperson for the WSDOT just say someone might think Zombie's are up ahead? I have no jokes for that.
What I do have is righteous indignation! I drive this stretch of 405 once or twice a week and every single time there's a pack of idiots that don't merge left after passing the sign. It's almost like a Mario Cart level, people want to hit a couple plastic barrels before they cut you off at the last second. If only I could get the red turtle shells instead of the stupid banana peel, I'd totally show them.

maybe next year bikini zombie slayers will make the list
Some days I wish I was born in mexico to a man named "el diamonte". He would teach me the ways of the lucha libre, and one day after his death I would avenge him in the ring as Diamonte Fantastico. This would be my finishing move. I think I'd call it the Sustantivo, which I think means deathbed or death certificate, I'm cool with it either way.
