Somebody in Spain invented a spray-on fabric that comes out of a can and is both washable and reusable.
Huh. I just don't see a scenario where I'm going to want to pop open a can of shirt and spray it on.
Hair in a can? Brilliant. Sandwich in a can? Even more brilliant. But fabric in a can? Sounds a last-minute Science Fair project you came up with after your 'Crystal Meth: Friend or Foe?' idea was deemed inappropriate by the teacher.
Every week we see countless comments that have absolutely nothing to do with anything. Our favorite irrelevant comment this week came from bbaallman in response to a picture of Snooki reading a book.
I appreciate this irrelevant comment for its simplicity. But it's still ridiculous. I give you Snooki on a spring horse at a playground reading a book called "Power" and you give me blog blog blog?!
Come on, bbaallman! Our relationship is a two-way street!
Now get your hands off my ass.
If you have any irrelevant comments please go ahead and leave them below. We bloggers truly appreciate your cooperation.
Confession time… I saw Step Up 3D.
Mashable reports that "Popular gadget site Engadget has recently shut down comments. It’s a temporary measure, it says, but the blog took it because the 'tone in comments has really gotten out of hand.'"
According to their official announcement on the topic, Engadget claimed that comments had "become mean, ugly, pointless, and frankly threatening in some situations… and that's just not acceptable."
Um, Dear Engadget– Have you been to the Internet before? That is basically the definition of comments.
Part of my job is to look over all of your guys' terrible comments. If I freaked out every time I saw something mean, ugly or pointless, I'd be in a nonstop hissy fit. Especially the "pointless" part. Do you realize how pointless some of your comments are? Seriously??
But we love it! Comment all you want!! Who the hell cares?!?! I mean, part of me thinks "Mean, Ugly, Pointless" could be the new Tosh.0 motto.
For everyone who has yet to understand that the point of a blog is to be pointless, let this be exhibit A.
Larry Granillo, blogging for Wezen-Ball.com (my favorite nonsensically named baseball blog), has compiled the records for all of Charlie Brown's baseball teams.
And I'm not talking about Charles Edward Brown who apparently "started 4 games for the Cleveland Spiders in 1897." I'm talking about the cartoon character. From the Peanuts comic strip. He owned Snoopy.
Why would someone want to do this? I have absolutely no idea. And I am a BIG Peanuts fan. Back in elementary school while all the other kids were getting laid, I collected Peanuts books. I loved them. I often found them for fifteen cents at the local Paperback Trader. Fifteen cents was a lot of money back in 1988. My memories of history may be hazy and flawed.
But even as a Peanuts fan, this whole thing doesn't particularly interest me. However, I applaud him nonetheless… as much as I would applaud someone who counted how many times Garfield ate lasagna or how many times Mary Worth was raped.
Because, as I said at the beginning, the point of a blog should be pointlessness. Where else can this sort of information be disseminated? The, quote, "traditional news media", unquote, doesn't care how many times fictional, retired comic strip characters achieved meaningless goals. Only the Internet concerns itself with such matters.
So concern on Internet! Concern on!
