So We have all seen terrible design and corporate logos that are terrible. You just know it when you see it. Other times we see something so simple and effective we have to appreciate the identity. A simple “swoosh” and you know exactly what the company is and what it basically represents. What used to be a few strange random colored letters of a weird name, google, is now an everyday part of many peoples lives.
But what happens when a company doesn’t take enough time to fully understand the consequences of bad logo design (or company naming)? We get to take pictures and laugh of course!
Like these guys…were they just too cheap to pay for spaces when getting their sign made?
Breakfast of Champions…for champions who most likely die young from eating so much fried butter and cholesterol.
I don’t know how many of you have known about this all your life…seems to be either you have heard of them or you haven’t, but my first glimpse of this holy food was in the movie V For Vendetta. It was the scene where V is happily cooking away making the beautiful Evey (Natalie Portman) breakfast. I wasn’t sure what it was but it looked good. From the few glimpses it looked like some kind of biscuit with an egg laid on top of it or something. Although intrigued, I soon forgot about it and just assumed it was some strange British thing.
Well it wasn’t until a few days ago (and a carton of eggs + loaf of bread), that I learned what was actually going on in V’s kitchen. He was already pretty bad ass but, my god, can there be a better breakfast food?!?
Today is the last Friday the 13th of this year. There have been 3 this year (the most possible in a year, with one being the minimum) and if you are a freak then this is your last chance to get crazy on Firday the 13th. The next time there will be 3 Friday the 13ths in a year will be 2015!
The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (meaning Friday), and dekatreís (meaning thirteen), attached to phobía (meaning fear). The term triskaidekaphobia derives from the Greek words “tris”, meaning ‘three’, “kai”, meaning ‘and’, and “deka”, meaning ‘ten’. the whole word means three and ten. The word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.
According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a “Friday the 13th” superstition before the 19th century but there have also been some that say it goes back to the 1300s. Or maybe it was related to Jesus Christ who was crucified on a Friday after a Last Supper Attended by 13 people. Others suggest it is related to Norse mythology when Loki crashed a party of 12 gods of Valhalla.
This just goes to show you how awesome dogs are as pets. Here are a few videos of soldiers coming home after months away and their dogs greeting them. They are sooo excited. I’m a big wuss and teared up pretty easily…especially the last one. But I love dogs and already knew how awesome they were.
Sadly we didn’t find any videos of cats welcoming home their owners after months away. Most likely because cats suck arse.
The Most Awesomest Candy!!! – Halloween Candy Edition
I’ve always loved Halloween. Not because of the cool costumes or scary movies (though both are great) but because of the awesome candy. Most houses gave out the same crappy candy that you see all year round but ever since I was a kid I vowed to give out awesome, cool, crazy candy when I got older. You know, the kind that gets your house remembered by all the kids for being the “cool house” all year.
For me, as a kid, that usually meant the rare house that gave out full sized Snickers or KitKats. Though I also always like the ones that did something different even if lame in most kids minds…things like fresh apples or cool popcorn balls. Of course those were the things on my mothers “throw away” list and I never got to keep them. You know, because people could put razor blades in the apples or sprinkle anthrax on the popcorn balls…did any of that crap ever actually happen? Not the best training for a kid…”no, apples are bad throw them away” but “keep the candy”.
So here is our top 10 list of the most Awesomest Candy to give out on Halloween night. You only get one chance per year to make an impression so do it right!…finish reading this idiotical post…
Eagles are big birds so you can imagine they are pretty tough. But they may be even more hardcore than you might have imagined.
Yeah, they have talons as long as our fingers and can easily tear flesh from their prey but you just don’t picture such a “majestic” bird kicking so much ass or going around pulling goats off cliffs. At least I didn’t. I always just assumed they ate fish and random rodents/rabbits.
How about hunting mountain goats, grabbing the younger ones and dragging them off the cliffs so they drop to the bottom then stopping in for a quick hot meal?
