One for the road

Cat Bathing as a Martial Art.

This gallery of unusual musical instruments has pictures, information and even short sound clips. Just really cool pieces of art: the Serpent, the Stamenphone, the Pikasso. (via Sensible Erection)

Which celebrity with a deathwish are you? (via Backwash)

Very, very, very sketchy. (via Dave Barry)

Speaking of...Disney secrets is a very interesting (and possibly lawsuit-worthy) site. (via Milk and Cookies)

America's Biggest Readers. (via Arts & Letters Daily)

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, here's a little something from the Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue: "Irish Assurance: a bold forward behaviour: as being dipt in the river Styx was formerly supposed to render persons invulnerable, so it is said that a dipping in the river Shannon totally annihilates bashfulness; whence arises the saying of an impudent Irishman, that he has been dipt in the Shannon."

Librarian Avengers: Damn you, acidic paper!

And Revolting Librarians! (via memepool)

Social theorist trading cards. (via Incoming Signals)

Someone thinks there are Subliminal messages on soda labels.

Bum wines. (via Metafilter)

A gallery of belly dancing LPs.

Evil on a Budget...or how to threaten the free world on fifty dollars a day: "Over the past few decades, the cost of effective villainy has skyrocketed, outpacing the Dow, the Consumer Price Index, and even health insurance. These days it's hard to find a secluded mountaintop or isolated island that hasn't already been covered with condos. All the really formidable-looking abandoned warehouses have been converted into high-priced lofts. And don't even think about finding a "fixer upper" castle for a reasonable price"

There's only one word that can sufficiently describe this: Awwwww!. (via The Excitement Machine)

Cute dead guy of the week. (via Reverse Cowgirl)

For a mere £20, you too can adopt your very own pub-going local! (via New World Disorder)

"Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village consists of 33 structures mostly made of bottles and cement -- all on one-third of an acre....She started building in 1955 at the age of 62 and used over one million bottles throughout the Village. Her first bottle house was for her collection of 10,000 pencils. Then she built another for her doll collection." More bottle houses here

Roman Catholics sure do know how to party: the Feast of Asses, the Feast of Fools, the Feast of the Boy-Bishop.

The Sibl Project (Songs Inspired By Literature) seeks to "...use music as a vehicle to engage, inspire and reinforce the magic of literature and the power of reading." Okay, but seriously now--Paul Anka was inspired by Camus?

Modeled on the Internet Movie Database, the goal of the Internet Book List is to "introduce some much-needed idle browsing capabilities for books on the web". Great idea, but will it be as successful? (via Fark)

Face lifting. Eegads.

Gearheads customize their cars. Geeks customize their computers. Sweet!. (also via Boing Boing)

"Do men and women behave differently online? Can you tell who is a man and who is a woman on the Internet based on how they interact with others? " Check out the Turing Game and find out for yourself.

Whoo! Vintage video game cross-stitch! Yeah! (via Boing Boing)

The Royal Journal of Found Art. Highlights include: A Very Gay Shopping List, Nude Descending Turkey, Jamie Clemmons Sex Sticker, and The Thumbs Up Guy. (via The Presurfer)

Here's a whole lot of little...molded...thingies.

Secret Plot of the Muffler Men.

"Imagine an ordinary baseball...Now imagine that same baseball with coat after coat after coat of paint. Getting the picture? Good, because that's exactly what my wife, Glenda and I have done for the past 26 years. Now that ordinary baseball that once weighed less than one pound now weighs 800 pounds!" Okay!
