Today's Mighty Oak

More things for you (and then probably just one or two more big posts like this this weekend):

Cool Russian PSA for reading:


I thought I posted about this before, but maybe I didn’t, how awesome are these pools:

Now you can use a typewriter to make a painting.  Pretty awesome, but I think it would take too long and turn out being a bit pixelated (although it would be a cool style)

From Copyranter, we’ve finally found Snooki’s doppleganger:


File this under irony.  And asshatery.  Music used in an anti-piracy ad was pirated.

Also from Copyranger, this Billboard popped up here in Pa.  And I love it:


There are a lot of Nintendo characters.  Check out a mural of a ton of them here.

There is some really awesome art around the Occupy Movement.  Check it out here.  I’m a fan of this one:


Because it has to do with typesetting, I loved this issue of Gutters, go check it out.

That’s it for now, back in a bit!


And I’m back, with more fun stuff for you!  First up, watch this trailer, I’m freaking excited for this:

VH1 is bringing back Pop-up Video, and has ordered 60 episodes.  I might be even more excited about that.

This PSA ran during the season finale of Glee, and I really, really like it.  I hope it’s effective (and I should work on that myself, I’ve gotten better, but it certainly pops out every now and then):

Speaking of Harry Potter (from my last post), what if he had an MBA, check out the gallery here:

One of my favorite blogs has a post up about the fake necessity of repeating something seven times before it is remembered.  Go check it out.  Enjoy the rage.

And here’s an awesome video involving ball pit balls and magnets:


F5 2011 RE:PLAY Film Festival. Inductance from Physalia Studio on Vimeo.


I’m a little behind, but here is a gallery of awesome signs from Borders:

Stephen Colbert takes on habitual liar (not intended to be a factual statement) Jon Kyl.  Here’s a favorite, and here are the rest:

In case the embed code does not work below, go and watch John Lithgow perform an actual press release from Newt Gingrich.  I will repeat, these are the words, verbatim, from an actual press release.  How amazing!

And finally

Wikileaks has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.  How awesome would it be if it won?  I can only hope.

Buzzfeed has a list of Darth Vader doing strange things (at least, strange for the Dark Lord of the Sith), this may be my favorite:

And here is what Star Wars would look like if it was drawn by Dr. Seuss.

Warning, this will overdose you on cuteness:

And following that explosion of cuteness, this made me so incredibly proud.

I was never a huge fan of Groundhog Day, but maybe I wasn’t old enough when I first saw it.  But anyway, here’s a bunch of estimations about how much time actually takes place.

What would it look like if the entire population of the world moved together to a density like many cities:

I find this strangely funny, I think mostly because of the kid’s reactions:

And as a follow up to that, Newt Gingrich tries to defend his view of marriage.  And the response:

Gingrich would like to remind everybody that that marriage is between one man and one woman whom you abandon riddled with cancer on her hospital bed while you fuck the shit out of your mistress whom you later marry and cheat on with a third woman while screaming with Godly moral outrage about the infidelities of the president.

Bill Gates talks about this latest endeavor, eradicating polio around the world.  My favorite quote however, is where he states the vaccine-autism link is an ‘absolute lie.’  I’ve never really listened to him speak for that long, but he is very well spoken.  Maybe not as good as Steve Jobs, but better than what I had perceived he would be.  Anyway, here’s the clip:

And lastly today, this is scary first, because of the oppression of expression (and bloggers) and two, because it is a reality that in some areas, certain ethnic groups have limited rights.
