The Oscars are upon us again and since a person at work and one of my friends are both obsessed with these awards, I have a list of the nominations to share. The point of this is for your to post your bet on who will win each category and why… even better: say who wasn’t nominated and why they should be.

Who needs Google? You got Ask Snoop!

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)
If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that’s more like it!)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out
to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
A pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

One of my buddies forwarded me the link to a quick flash file that made me laugh a little. If you need a quick laugh, try and think back to the days in the computer lairs of your college… and then open the link.
Poster’s note: I can’t help feel this is rigged, but I wouldn’t put it past myself to do a similar thing.

For those of you who have seen The Shining, this will be pretty funny. If you haven’t seen it this will probably be confusing… just letting you know.
This website has now made two 30-second flash movies where they reinact the memorable scenes of classic movies. So far i’ve seen The Shining and The Excorcist… reinacted by bunnies.
With the surge in ‘reality’ shows and the radical change of MTV (from Music TV to eMpTy V), America’s millions of tv viewers have asserted their power to change the situation for smaller TV networks who produce most of the reality shows. The production cost of a reality show is a small fraction of what the big networks spend on their big productions like HBO’s Band of Brothers, which is really chapping the big networks’ collective butt.
Anyway, eBay is another medium that has changed the way the internet is being used. Most of the postings you see on eBay now are organized “Power Sellers” that run entire businesses off eBay, but a large number of posts are from your typical casual seller that just wants to auction something off. This post, as the title suggests is a post on eBay for an auction that closed on April 28, 2004 (so, I don’t know how long they are going to keep it up) for a wedding dress… Normally, I wouldn’t give it another look, but the pictures woke my appetite and the reading afterwards of the item description settled my appetite for a good laugh.
hro-kee, so… this is a little flash file about nuclear war and the different peoples of earth portrayed with perhaps a small bias for using common stereotypes, but nonetheless funny… especially for those of us in California. Damn French…

William Hung, a man onto himself.
He entered the American Idol auditions with a bulletproof attitude and balls of steel. This is worth 2 minutes of your time…
See the video here. (sound required)
And if you want to know what else is going on with the man, the myth, the legend, take a look at this website dedicated to him: williamhung.net (thanks to Shannon and the team at Yahoo for digging this one up)

Lord of the Rings: The Return Of The King was released on December 17th at a feature length of 3 hours and 30 minutes for this final film in the trilogy. I would recommend the collectors versions of the trilogy films if you are interested in learning more about the vast imaginary world which has been created based on the original books (The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings)
In connection with the trilogy and other famous works of J.R.R. Tolkien there have been a lot of development of various mythical stories and creatures, etymology of a lot of the elvish words used. One of the scolars (David Salo) of the invented languages Tolkien used in the books was called up to help the movie creators with the inscriptions on both the ring and the elven gate to the mines of Morea, along with the dialogue of the films and inscriptions on costumes and props. Another student of Tolkien came up with one of the more current applications of his studies and put his knowledge into a name generator. If you want to learn more, click here.

So, I just had an email forwarded to me that casually mentions that you can look up people’s driver’s licence on-line with picture and everything! Jesus!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want this information out there available for anyone to see, so help me let people know what’s going on so we can get a petition started to shut this site down.
For now, jump on here as quickly as you can, look up your own driver’s licence and when it comes up click the ‘Please remove me from this database’ button on the bottom right.
