Don't Try This At Work

Thuggish Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. In the news today, a Mythbusters experiment went very, very wrong, when the cannon they launched went much further than they intended, flew past the military firing reservation, into a neighborhood and ripped through TWO separate homes before finally landing inside someone's minivan. The Discovery Channel show has been put on hold (*sadface*) pending an investigation. Oops. Did you hear that sound? That's the sound of Discovery Channel's insurance premiums going up.

'Mythbusters' Experiment Goes Wrong Cannonball RIPS Through Homes

Two California families are lucky to be alive -- after a "Mythbusters" experiment went horribly awry yesterday ... sending a cannonball careening through their homes, leaving MASSIVE holes in its wake.

Sgt. JD Nelson from the Alameda County Sheriff's Department says hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage were trying to figure out how effective a cannon is at firing non-cannonball objects ... but first, they had to test the cannonball itself.

The cannonball was supposed to land harmlessly in a nearby hill -- but something went wrong ... and the ball, traveling at about 1000 ft/s, went over the hill bordering Camp Parks Military Firing Reservation, and into the neighboring town of Dublin, crashing through two separate houses before finally coming to rest ... inside someone's minivan.

The Discovery Channel show has been put on hold after the mishap, pending a full investigation. Luckily, no one was injured.

Thanks to San Francisco KTVU for the footage.

In celebrity news, Sinead O'Connor has announced she is getting married for the 4th time. Wow, time flies. It seems like just yesterday she was taking to her blog looking for sexual partners. When actually it's been a full 3 months since that request. Guess she finally found her man that was up for the "difficult brown" *trying not to gag* and she's not about to let him go.

I had no idea the Honey Badger was such a badass. I think National Geographic needs to hire this guy to do all their animal documentaries. (warning: contains strong language & hilarity)

Hey, WTF?!! I'm not exactly sure that will work as a floatation device. Maybe the Mythbusters should test that myth. Oh wait...

And that's all the time I have for today. Living within a 100 mile radius of where the Mythbusters test their myths? Maybe it's time to put your house on the market. Until tomorrow everyone...

If the Lion King were to happen in real life, the lions would have naturally choosen Scar over Simba

It's because of the color of Scar's mane. The mane in each adult lion is a telling sign of its strength and sexual maturity. The fuller and darker a Lion's mane is the more attractive it is to the lionesses.

A dark and full mane in a lion indicates:

  • Higher testosterone production
  • Fighting success in mate to male combat
  • Longer reproductive lives
  • Higher offspring survival




  1. LOL You know that Myth busters experiment was only a couple of miles away from my parents' house?

    My mom called me to tell me what was going on! Crazy!

    When I heard about Sinead O'Connor getting married on the news (oh, have you seen her future husband!?) all I could think about was your post about "difficult brown" - LOL EWWW- Oh and the spelling of her name is about as easy for me as Siobhaun...wait...did I spell that right?

  2. @Jamie, LOL no, it's "Siobhan". :)

    OMG, it was close to your parents' house? That is crazy!!!

  3. OH MY GOD HONEY BADGER! I die laughing. =]

  4. Wow...I can just imagine a guy sitting there watching TV and a cannonball goes through his house and he just sighs and goes "fucking Mythbusters!"

    I mean damn...can you imagine? Going out to take the kids to the park and there's a gorram cannonball in your van?!?! That's insane!

    Sinead's a mess. Goodness that woman's a mess.

    All I can even say.

  5. James, I love you just for cursing Firefly-style!!!
