Internet Roundup

So, I’m still having some school problems, so for this week, WTF Wednesday and FTW Friday are gonna be combined together…

Link 1

Jusin Beiber slowed down by 800%. It’s a 30-something minute track of awesomesauce. I seriously burned this to a CD and put it into my rotation of night CDs (I fall asleep better listening to music, so I have a number of sleepytime music). Not because it’s boring, but because it’s calm and soothing, and, most importantly…AWESOME!

A Panera where the price is only suggested…you pay what you want. And 50-90% pay either at or higher than the suggested price. Really cool idea, I think, especially with “the economy” being the way that it is…

I’ll let the article speak….

Harvard University researchers have found that, in both laboratory and mouse studies, delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cuts tumor growth in half in common lung cancer while impeding the cancer’s ability to spread.

The compound “seems to have a suppressive effect on certain lines of cancer cells,” explained Dr. Len Horovitz, a pulmonary specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

According to the researchers, THC fights lung cancer by curbing epidermal growth factor (EGF), a molecule that promotes the growth and spread of particularly aggressive non-small cell lung cancers.

See? It helps cure cancer. LUNG cancer.Even inhaling it’s hot smoke is beneficial to you…

They found a way to use an organic dye to make any piece of glass into a solar panel…awesome ^_^

Link 5 (NSFW, or I’d post a pic of it..)

It’s a necklace with a vagina charm. This one I think is pretty awesome. I like the colors, and the way they look together. Very 90’s, but judging by the title, that was the point. If it still is for sale when I have enough money (sorta unemployed at the moment..) I think I’ll buy it…

Link 6

Apparently, the blue dye from M&M’s can help treat spinal injuries…and cute blue mice…

Link 7

Passive aggressive apology letters to BP. Brilliant! I was in stitches.

Link 8

This is a brilliant invention. It could save you so much money on soda…over time, anyways. I drink a lot of soda, so it would work for me.

Link 9:

Pokemon, let me show you them!

If you don’t know why this is awesome…..go find a first gen Pokemon game. >_<

Link 10

Apparently, a prison in the US is going to be using a “laser pain ray” to try to control the inmates…the part that really gets me tho is this quote from the article:

Prison officers have even tested the non-lethal weapon on themselves and say it is excruciatingly painful.

Wow, this REALLY REALLY hurts….let’s go use it on other people! >_<

Link 11:

…wow….

And with that, I bid thee all adieu!

FTW FRIDAY

FTW Friday, people-changing-clocks-makes-me-miss-anarchy-class-chat-edition!

(I woke up, looked at the clock, it said 10, so I figured, hey, can’t actually be 10, that clock is an hour fast…and then it turns out someone had fixed it >_<

First of, Anti-drug ftw!

I haven’t watched this yet (my boyfriend and I wanna watch it together, so I need to wait for him) but I’ve scrolled through it a bit and…boy is it lulzy-looking.

From Wikipedia:

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue is an animated drug prevention television special starring many of the popular cartoon characters from American Saturday morning television. Financed by McDonald’s, the special was originally simulcast on April 21, 1990 on all three major American television networks: ABC, NBC, and CBS, most independent stations, as well as cable networks Nickelodeon and USA Network. McDonald’s also distributed a VHS home video edition of the special, produced by Buena Vista Home Entertainment, which opened with an introduction from then-President George H. W. Bush, and First Lady Barbara Bush.

With a description like that, how could this not be so-terrible-it’s-awesomesauce?

Next: Baby win!

Link

I get what she’s trying to do. Cool.

Next: Game win!

Link

I might have posted this before, but regardless, it’s pretty awesome.  Try it in night mode for an extra challange 🙂

Lastly: Save the animals win!

Link

From their website:

50% of women do not leave abusive situations for fear her pet will be injured or killed. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (www.ncadv.org), there were 113,123 reported cases of domestic violence and 180 domestic-violence related homicides in Florida in 2008. Women and children should not have to leave their pet(s) behind.
The goal of Animal Safehouse is to remove this barrier by caring for pets while owners are in transition. Our objective is to form a network of foster families to provide homes for pets of domestic violence survivors until they can be reunited in a safe living environment. We provide all food, supplies, vet care, and other essentials throughout their stay with us. We also help women reunite with their animals post-shelter by assisting with pet deposits and transport (we even shipped a dog to Oregon once).

I think this is a great idea. Domestic violence victims have enough trouble leaving abusive situations, they shouldn’t have to worry about their pets getting hurt/killed as well. This is the first I’ve heard of such a place, and I heartily support it! I wish I wasn’t a poor college student, or I’d donate some moneez…

Anyways, lovelies, I must be going. Got some work I need to get done tonight. Ta! ♥

FTW FRIDAY

FTW Friday, my anus is bleeding edition!

First, economic win!

I don’t know much about economics, but I understood the video, for the most part. 🙂 The rest I asked my boyfriend, the econ/psych major, about and he explained it. Awesomely catchy.

Weebl’s win:

It has a horse peenzor for a minute…. But this is not the win! The win is…

SOMEONE COVERED IT WIN!!!!

Hehehehe.

Whitest Kids U Know Win(NSFW):

Heh.

Coming shortly tonight, there’ll be a real post. For realies this time.

FTW Friday!

FTW Friday YAY-I-GOT-MY-INTERNET-BACK edition!

So, now that I have internet back, I can make regular posts, without having to sit in the exact right position to see what unsecured networks :-p

First:

Awesome science FTW

Catchy. Usually I hate autotune, but I feel like this is an acceptable use. 🙂 Plus, it has Bill Nye the science guy in it! I loved Bill Bye as a kid! Like, if I knew Bill Nye was on TV, I’d change the channel, no matter how much my sisters protested. And it was always a good science class when our teacher turned on a Bill Nye episode. Plus, the whole meaning of the song is pretty sweet. I suggest you check all of the Symphony of Science things out. Here’s a link to the youtube channel where you can find all of them. I heartily enjoy all of them. And check out the Billy Mays tribute while you’re there. So many cool videos, I could probably make a post just out of that youtube channel, but I’ll refrain from doing so….

Next:

I like complaining FTW!

It involves subtitles, so if you don’t like that, you won’t like it. But I thought it was really cute and clever and funny. I have learned to not watch it when easily saddened, because there’s a line that makes me sad. The one where, “My flat is small, but it eats all my money so I have nothing left with which to save the world” or something along those lines. It kinda hits close to home with me, because if I didn’t have all my moneez (and I mean, ALL) go to bills and feeding myself, I would donate money to the people who play those sad animal commercials, but I can’t, so I just cry (yes, they make me actually cry) when I go to my mom’s place and actually have cable (cable is a bill that, alas, I cannot afford under my current monetary constraints, and neither can me roomies). But, besides that, this video is totally awesome, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! ‘Cause so much of it is true, or funny, or both!

Next:

Political FTW!

This video is pretty legit cool. Except for I advocate for the complete abolition of copyrights, but that’s a completely different post. So for now, I’ll just say that this is pretty awesome. Look forward to a rambling post about copyright in the (probably!) near future!

Next!

Thought-provoking FTW

Dr.  Q sent me this link, and…I dunno. It made me think. I haven’t really come to any conclusions. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, if you want. It’ll be cool. Maybe we can have a fun conversation in the comments or something 🙂

Next!

All-over-awesome-unexpected FTW!

My good bestest girlie friend (Thank you, S-puu!) sent me this link a while back, and I forgot it existed. But I remembered it after her boyfriend dude, Bearface of the Bear-face clan, sent me the complaining video up there **points up** So I asked her to re-link me. It just puts a huge smile on my face when I watched it. So, I figured I’d pass it on to you!

Next!

Somewhat-geeky-FTW!

Bearface and S-puu linked me this a week or two ago, but it was nighttime, and my boyfriend was sleeping, and my internet was being stupid, and so I decided to watch it today, now that I have **lights shine from above** working internet! And it made me giggle. ‘Cause I used to play World of Warcrack…erm, I mean Warcraft. So..I dunno. It just makes me giggle. ^_^ I thought it was win!

Next! (and for now, lastly!)

Somewhat disturbing FTW!

You had a pikachu…kill a squirtle….collecting leaves…for **GAME*????? **blink blink** I want those hoodies tho. I might make them, if I have the energy and enough money at some point to buy the supplies. But (that game) is wicked fun to play. Boyfriend has it on his W, from virtual console. We play it sometimes. It’s fun. But yeah, that video makes me giggle.

Thus concludes another FTW Friday. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get out more non-fluff posts soon, so that there’ll be original Momo content, instead of just link regurgitation.

See ya soon!

FTW FRIDAY

FTW Friday, also-late-because-my-internet-got shut off edition!

Sorry that both this and WTF Wednesday were both a bit late. Wednesday I had to travel from my mom’s house to my apartment (across about 3 or so state lines) and Friday, due to a bit of a mix-up, the internet in my apartment was turned off. Working to get it all worked out, but it might take a few days. Be patient.

Now, on to the FTW-ness!

First, cheese rap!

I originally couldn’t decide if this was FTW or WTF. But after a few watches, I decided that it is definitely FTW. Why? ‘Cause I’m cool like that. Next video!!

Maine Man

It’s from the same people. I just like the bickering about who is “more Maine”, hahahahaha

Next a link

Here

Basically, Ireland passed a blasphemy ban. That’s the wtf part. But it’s FTW friday, so you know there’s gotta be some win, right? I’ll take the win right from their own website:

In this context we now publish a list of 25 blasphemous quotes, which have previously been published by or uttered by or attributed to Jesus Christ, Muhammad, Mark Twain, Tom Lehrer, Randy Newman, James Kirkup, Monty Python, Rev Ian Paisley, Conor Cruise O’Brien, Frank Zappa, Salman Rushdie, Bjork, Amanda Donohoe, George Carlin, Paul Woodfull, Jerry Springer the Opera, Tim Minchin, Richard Dawkins, Pope Benedict XVI, Christopher Hitchens, PZ Myers, Ian O’Doherty, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and Dermot Ahern.

Despite these quotes being abusive and insulting in relation to matters held sacred by various religions, we unreservedly support the right of these people to have published or uttered them, and we unreservedly support the right of any Irish citizen to make comparable statements about matters held sacred by any religion without fear of being criminalised, and without having to prove to a court that a reasonable person would find any particular value in the statement.

Awesome.
Well, I must be going. Lots to do, not a lot of time to do it…
