Once you commit to a framework to prioritize your goals and cut the junk, achieving your goals gets a lot more realistic. Here's one way to do it.

  • It Has Begun: Robot Kills Worker At Volkswagen Plant

    It Has Begun: Robot Kills Worker At Volkswagen Plant
    volkswagen-robot-death.jpg In news that proves it's time to start disassembling anything with metal parts, a 22-year old worker was killed at a Volkswagen plant near Kassel, Germany after an industrial robot slammed him against a metal plate. For reference, nobody deserves to go out like that. I wouldn't even wish that on my worst enemies and I am constantly wishing very terrible things happen to them.
    Heiko Hillwig said Wednesday the 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate. Hillwig said initial conclusions indicate that human error was to blame, rather than a problem with the robot.
    Wait -- human error was to blame? I'm pretty sure that was a robot error. Are we not going to hold robots accountable for their actions? It should have known not to kill that man. Sure you should never try assembling a robot with its power turned on, but who threw the punch? I vote we lower that robot into lava really really slow like a Temple Of Doom sacrifice. Thanks to UniDude, Sarah Conner, Chris and Robot Overlord, the last of which probably only sent this to brag about the frailty of humans. Sarah Conner, take him out!
  • Man Launches Wheelbarrow With Giant Firecracker

    Man Launches Wheelbarrow With Giant Firecracker
    wheelbarrow-launch-with-firework.jpg This is a video of Youtuber bra1Nphuk (I see what you did there) launching an overturned wheelbarrow almost fifty feet with the help of a Cobra 6 firecracker, which packs 48.5-grams of explosive powder (versus 2-3 grams for an M-80). The landing is most spectacular. If I were a judge I would be holding up a '10' sign over my head right now. I am not a judge though so the sign reads 'SHOW ME UR DING-DONG' (I made it for a pride celebration). Keep going for the video.
  • My Doctor Is Going To Hate Me: Pizza Fried Chicken

    My Doctor Is Going To Hate Me: Pizza Fried Chicken
    pizza-fried-chicken.jpg Because I'm just itching to put on my next twenty pounds, this is the Napoli Crispy Pizza Fried Chicken available from KFC Hong Kong. Apparently it has a pizza flavored breading, including mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. It looks like maybe some kind of marinara too? Would I try it? Probably. Would I choke on a bone? Absolutely. That's why my mom only lets me eat chicken nuggets now. One time at a family reunion I choked on a chicken bone and my mom had to take me to the hospital and I missed the rest of the reunion which was actually fine with me because I'm from West Virginia and all my cousins are f***ing weird and make me uncomfortable. Thanks to Taylor, who's still hoping for steak flavored chicken because then you could get the taste of steak for way cheaper.

    Rising From The Ashes: The Dress Of The Phoenix
    dress-of-the-phoenix.jpg This is The Dress Of The Phoenix. I don't really have any more information than that except it looks cool and also looks long enough to comfortably wear without underwear. Unless it actually catches fire, then you're gonna wish you were wearing underwear. Right now I wish I was wearing underwear because I thought that was just going to be a fart but it sounded way more ambitious than that. Thanks to Breann, who expected more fiery color in a Dress Of The Phoenix. Then maybe you should make your own!

It's amazing in all that time it was never burnt up in a house fire. I've averaging like three house fires a year now. I'm starting to think someone is trying to kill me. "You pass out with the stove on." I'm my own worst enemy. Thanks to becca b, who hasn't been exchanging anything with her siblings her whole life except dirty looks and backhanded compliments. Classic.

    The NanoGrid will give you light, however you need it
    Past a certain hour of the day, we’re pretty reliant on light to see what’s going on around us. While some are content with one or two lights on in the house, others need to turn on every single light as they move through each room. Usually if the power goes out we can rely on a flashlight app from our smartphones, but eventually your battery will drain, and then ...

    Playbulb Garden Solar Lights spruces up your garden at night
    When dusk falls, we humans would definitely need a fair amount of light to get around. Otherwise, we would be literally walking around as though blind. Lights not only offer us a chance to have a look at our surroundings, but also to be able to change the way a place looks – to enhance it, and the works, so to speak.
