  • Aquafina – water from the same tap you use

    Yes folks, that bottled water you like so much comes from the same place your tap water does. PepsiCo Inc. is the latest company to offer some clarity about the source of its top-selling bottled water, announcing Friday it will change Aquafina labels to spell out that the drink comes from the same source as […]

  • Papercraft posts coming

    Just an advanced notice – I dig papercraft, and expect to post a number of these awesome works in the future

  • Pentagon had plans for a gay bomb

    I’m noticing the WTF? category often coincides with the Stupid category on the blahg. Well, in instances like this, I think that is a reasonably accurate way to categorize the information that follows. A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that […]

Rumblings from the sales-outlet side indicate Target will carry only Blu-Ray players this holiday season, Blockbuster will expand Blu-ray offerings but not HD-DVD movies, and BJs wholesale will stop carrying Hi-Def DVD movies in store (although the format will still be available to online shoppers […]

  • That LEGO thing seems to be catching on

    I am not sure there is anything else that needs to be said. Go there now! Given how well done the LEGO Star Wars games have been, this is one I already look forward to playing. (via Joystiq) [tags]LEGO, Indiana Jones, Lucas Arts, LEGO Indy[/tags]

  • Finally done

    I know I’m late to the party on this, but I have finally finished the last Harry Potter book. Bought it release day, read one-third of it, then the wife took it to read after she finished whatever it was she’d been reading that week-end. After I got it back, I only read a few […]
