I just got my glow-in-the-dark mushrooms today from Dirty Microbe. They call it “Tokyo luminous mushrooms” as the mushrooms themselves don’t really glow, but the other sand-line pebbles around it do. However, it’s still so awesome!!!
Here’s an image from their website:
Both mushrooms I got had green bumps on them. Would’ve been nice if they gave me a red one too, but seeing how these were out of stock for quite some time, I’m not complaining.
For those interested in purchasing from their site, they sent me a card:
saving money is good.

Shipping without the code is still just $1.99, but a $2 savings is $2 I can buy more toys like these glow-in-the-dark mushrooms.
They’re also have a t-shirt sale where any t-shirt is $12. They has some funny and some cute designs.

Fake Luigi invades Japanese Wii launch (from Deadlock) – this blog entry wasn’t that interesting, but while watching the video, I saw the girl in the picture below:
Though it’s not definitive, but you get an idea of who plays the PS3 and who plays the Wii. If you want a cute attractive girl to come to your place, you get the Wii. If you want… well… you get the story.
City dunks cookie-scented ad campaign – City officials ordered CBS Outdoor, the company that holds the advertising contract for its bus shelters, to remove the adhesive strips Tuesday, just one day after they were put up as part of a “Got Milk?” campaign. … Some critics expressed concern over potential allergic reactions. Others complained the ads could be offensive to the poor and homeless who can’t afford to buy sweet treats. Interesting why no one bothered to ask if the poor and homeless were offended by it. Don’t you love it how people just love making decisions for those that are not as well off as they are?
Scary ‘Mary Poppins’ Trailer (from Digg) – I recut the Disney classic to make it seem like a horror movie, entitled SCARY MARY. Haha! Another awesome parody trailer. Reminds me of the parody Shining trailer. Then again, I’ve never watched Mary Poppins.
War on Drugs Expands to Catnip (from MS newsgroup) –
While catnip does not have the same effect on human beings, the advocates of banning catnip have pointed out that children who give their cats catnip and then see the cat being “happy” might get dangerous ideas about getting high. They think, if the cat can feel good, why not them too? Indeed, the first step to marijuana addiction may well be catnip! According to the drug warriors, catnip has been a major gateway to the human abuse of drugs, and yet there has been no prohibition.
“Catnip is a much greater drug problem than most people realize,” said Ima Tyrant in a recently televised interview. “Some teenagers have experimented with smoking catnip. People also make tea from catnip, and have used it in folk medicines. We can no longer tolerate this big loophole in drug abuse. The prohibition of catnip will the “cat-stone” to America’s War on Drugs.
Haha! A hilarious article and has the same funny taste as The Onion.

What code DOESN’T do in real life (that it does in the movies) (from Digg) – Following up our article: Top 20 Hackers in Film History and Vibrant’s Top 10 Servers in the movies, I felt obligated to dispel some of the notions about programming that these movies endorse. I understand that Hollywood needs to dress things up to make them more entertaining, but in the case of programmers, code, and hackers they’ve done more than dress things up – they’ve morphed a little stuffed teddy bear into a cybernetic polar bear covered in christmas lights and phosphorescent hieroglyphics with a fog machine pumping rainbow smoke out of his ass. In other words, they’ve layered a ridiculous amount of extravagance on top of something that in reality is very grounded. Haha! Reminds me that the same rules applies to anime, where physics are re-defined. Though I think Xyon would disagree completely on this: People who write code use mice
Xbox 360 Versus PlayStation 3 Graphics Comparison (from Digg) – We expected the PlayStation 3 to ship with several games that first appeared on the Xbox 360, similar to how the Xbox 360 had a lot of Xbox ports at launch. And the PS3 did indeed arrive with a good number of games that originally shipped for the Xbox 360. This gave us the perfect opportunity to compare the graphics on both systems with several cross-platform games. You’d think that the PS3 versions would be exactly the same or slightly superior to the Xbox 360 versions, since many of these games appeared on the 360 months ago, but it seems like developers didn’t use the extra time to polish up the graphics for the PS3. We found that the Xbox 360 actually had better graphics in the majority of the games we compared. The games compared are: NFS Carbon, COD3, Madden, Marvel, NBA 2K7, Fight Night, Tony Hawk, Tiger Woods.
