American Bobsledder Johnny Quinn Gets Stuck... AGAIN!

The Olympics are hard enough.

You've got the best athletes in the entire world up against you, and you need to be at the absolute top of your game to succeed. 
The last thing you need is the Olympic village itself trying to defeat you too.

That would seem to be the case for poor Johnny Quinn, who had to ram his way out of a bathroom that had a jammed door, just a few days ago. Earlier this morning, Quinn found himself trapped again, this time in an elevator in his hotel.

Johnny Quinn: breaking barriers all over the place! Now if only the Russian government would follow his example...

"Dumb Starbucks" Coffee Store Opens in California

The mock store, which quietly opened Friday, is nearly identical to a typical Starbucks location, with tumblers for sale and trendy CDs, including "Dumb Jazz Standards," displayed on the counter.

But the similarities end there. Drinks here are served in green and white "Dumb Starbucks coffee" cups, while pastries are pulled from display cases straight from their Vons' packaging.

The menu features "Dumb Iced Coffee," "Dumb Frappuccinos," and a seasonal "Wuppy Duppy Latte."

The Float Table

The Float Table is a matrix of "magnetized" wooden cubes that levitate with respect to one another. The repelling cubes are held in equilibrium by a system of tensile steel cables.
It's classical physics applied to modern design. Each handcrafted table is precisely tuned to seem rigid and stable, yet a touch reveals the secret to Float's dynamic character.

Extreme Soil Liquefaction


Soil liquefaction describes a phenomenon whereby a saturated or partially saturated soil substantially loses strength and stiffness in response to an applied stress, usually earthquake shaking or other sudden change in stress condition, causing it to behave like a liquid. The phenomenon is most often observed in saturated, loose low density or uncompacted sand type soils.

Beware!!! Rye Bread!!

"He got his bread, then he died."... is that a fucking joke?? That zookeeper should have been given Danish cookies and than someone should have shot him from behind when he was eating the cookies.

Now, if you really want to get your blood boiling Google the Danish Whale Slaughter... these people all sure have the Viking Blood. I just can't take this shit.
