Secret Sauce

RayAlome linked me to this video: United 300 which is a parody on what I can only assume to be a merge of United Flight 93 (during 9/11) and 300 (the new movie with Leonidas and his 300 Spartans). Hilarious parody I must say.

This ultimately led me to their website: Secret Sauce, which had a ton more hilarious parodies. Here’s a few I wanted to share:

  • The DefartedThe follow up to the Academy Award winning film. A spoof on The Departed about farting
  • Little Miss JackassLittle Miss Sunshine’s Olive Hoover does stunts, a 9-year-old girl would Never do! Submitted for consideration in the 2007 MTV MOVIE AWARDS SPO
  • How to Bang My Wife – a parody of The Fray’s How to Save A life about trying to convince your wife to have sex with you.
  • HairyBack – a parody of Justin Timberlake’s SexyBack about hairy chests and backs.

Random Crap:

Patada subte Times Square (from Chokoboii) – algun dia me tenia que tocar a mi filmar algo asi. While break dancing, a little toddler wanders into the dance area and gets back-flip kicked. OUCH! A day or 2 later, someone’s made a remix of it: REMIX: Patada subte Times Square Techno Video Game Remix (from RayAlome). I couldn’t help but laugh.

My eBay Fox – My Friendly Fox (from Digg) – MyEBayFox is a version of the popular Firefox web browser that has been customized to provide you with a better eBay experience. Not really suggesting you to switch over to My eBay Fox, but I thought the fox was awfully cute!

Details emerge on IRS plans to tax eBay auctionsInternet auction sites will only be required to report customer revenue information if the customer does more than 100 separate transactions in a fiscal year and generates more than $5,000 in gross proceeds. Yay! I’m not covered!

Bank sells house complete with owner’s corpseThe corpse, preserved by salty air in the seaside town of Roses after an apparent death by natural causes, was discovered by Jorge Giro, who entered the house for the first time on Saturday after buying it at the auction, El Pais said.

Woman, cops exchange pepper spray blastsClay was originally going to be charged with disorderly conduct, according to police. She now faces felony battery and drug charges, plus misdemeanor charges. Sigh…

Baby issued Illinois gun ID cardBubba Ludwig can’t walk, talk or open the refrigerator door — but he does have his very own Illinois gun permit. … The card lists the baby’s height (2 feet, 3 inches), weight (20 pounds) and has a scribble where the signature should be. You’d think there’d be some age requirement to own a gun…

Indian train driver asks passengers to pushHundreds of Indian rail passengers got more than they had bargained for when the driver of their train asked them to get out and push. It took more than half an hour to move the stalled electric train 12 feet (4 metres) so that it touched live overhead wires and was able to resume its journey, officials said on Wednesday.

An Amputee Sprinter: Is He Disabled or Too-Abled? (from Digg) – Pistorius wants to be the first amputee runner to compete in the Olympics. But despite his ascendance, he is facing resistance from track and field’s world governing body, which is seeking to bar him on the grounds that the technology of his prosthetics may give him an unfair advantage over sprinters using their natural legs. Interesting… I’m not sure where I stand on this issue, but I do know, if people are allowed to modified their bodies to compete and if it’s proven that having these prosthetic legs allow you to run faster, many will be willing to chop off their own legs in order to compete for the gold. It’s the same reason why some people might want to become cyborgs or fuse weapons with their bodies. You can tell I’ve watched way too much anime. Then again, does becoming an amputee render you incapable of competing against regular people. It’s a tough question and I’m not sure there’s 1 correct answer.

* BE FOREWARNED, THE FOLLOWING LINKS CONTAIN DISTURBING AND DISGUSTING PHOTOS * I thought I knew insane. I didn’t know insane. (from Digg) – A very sad and disturbing story about the roommate from hell. While leaving poo everywhere was a side effect, she obviously needed help. Another blog entry has popped up about roommates from hell: People lived hereA guy from England rented his flat, people were living there and go away. and when the host returned he saw it.

The Lighthouse: An Innovative Green SkyscraperThe Lighthouse is another innovative green skyscraper to be constructed in Dubai. For energy generation, it will have three enormous 225 kilowatt wind turbines (29 meters in diameter), and 4000 photovoltaic panels on the south facing façade. To optimize performance and operational periods, the turbines have windward directional wind vanes or limited yaw. I really want to visit Dubai one of these days.

Strange alien world made of ‘hot ice’ (from /.) – Although the parent star is much cooler than the Sun, the planet orbits 13 times closer to the star than Mercury’s orbit around the Sun. That means the surface must be a blazing hot 300° C or more, keeping water in its atmosphere in vapor form. But the high pressures in the planet’s interior would compress the water so much that it would stay solid even at hundreds of degrees Celsius – the expected temperatures inside the planet. There are a variety of exotic ‘hot ice’ states possible in such conditions, with names like ‘Ice VII’ and ‘Ice X’.

Making work even more of a slog takes weight offThink work feels like a treadmill now? Try a new desk designed at the Mayo Clinic. … On average, their overweight volunteers burned 100 calories more every hour while walking slowly — at 1 mile per hour (1,6 km per hour) — than while sitting in a chair. Interesting concept. I wonder if I’d get annoyed to have to constantly walk.

  1. Re: Amputee Sprinter: I think it’d be great if athletes tried to do more to enhance themselves. Let’s let them have all the drugs and prosthetics they want. I might actually watch sports if half the teams were pill-popping cyborgs.

  2. What I’d pay to see is the Stoned Olympics.

    I forget which comedian said it, but who wouldn’t want to see the Stoned 100-meter dash? Put a candy bar at the finish line, and watch the world record get obliterated! 😛
