    Great, I'll Be Hungry All Night: Giant French Fries Bed
    french-fry-bed-1.jpg This is the Supersize Bed designed and built by Cecilia Carey and Harry Parr. It looks suspiciously like a giant pack of McDonald's fries. All the fries are actually removable pillows though, so you and a sleepover friend can use them to try to beat each other off the bed like American Gladiators. *thwack!* F*** YEAH, I'M GOING TO THE ELIMINATOR! When reached for comment about the bed, the McDonald's Fry Kids could not be found, because the bed IS McDonalds Fry Kids. DUM DUM DUM! Keep going for a closeup of the fry pillows.

    Pee Here And We'll Post It On Youtube: The Czech Republic Anti-Public Urination Sign
    youtube-shame-public-urination.jpg This is the anti-public urination sign spotted near the Hotel Marcin?ák in Mikulov, Czech Republic. It threatens public pissers with the shame of a video of them doing the deed being posted to Youtube. Do they even have a camera installed? No clue. But one blogger plans on taking a vacation to find out! God willing, I'll be so successful they give me my own Youtube channel. Thanks to Brock, who agrees the key to successful public urination is lots of bushes and pushing it out as hard and fast as you can. Just pretend you're a fire hose trying to put out a burning house.

    milky-way-over-yelllowstone-640.jpg Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. Full-res version available from NASA here (click the photo). This is a composite of 16 separate photos taken and stitched together by astronomer Dave Lane to create a panorama of the Milky Way Galaxy's central band above Silex Spring in Yellowstone National Park. Damn, that is a whole lot of beauty in one photo. Like if you stitched together every Playboy centerfold, then if you looked at them from far away they all formed ANOTHER naked lady. Yeah, just like that. A nipple for every star. Thanks to Pavel, who likes to stargaze at night and ponder the meaning of life. Me? I like to get just drunk enough to pass out and not wake up at all in the middle of the night.
