Why the Internet Was Invented, Vol. 8

Take a look at what the web had to offer last month.  Enjoy!

  1. What are the hidden costs of hamburgers?  Fuck cows, that's what.
  2. If this doesn't make you cry you are a heartless bastard (with no appreciation of the power of engineering design).
  3. This is the surface of another planet in HD.  Let me repeat that.  This is the surface of ANOTHER EFFING PLANET IN HD!
  4. What would Yiayia think?
  5. Here is a look at the Top 20 Most Influential TED talks.  I love TED.
  6. The Newsroom knocks it out of the park, again.
  7. Now, this is how you send off fallen warriors.
  8. Thanks for keeping it weird, Japan.  What the actual fuck?
  9. Alicia reads "Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman.  Wait, what is going on here?
  10. I never knew Spencer Tracy was so awesome.  He's my new hero.
  11. Here's a PSA for Republican women.  Seems legit.

  1. We are getting faster and stronger with every passing generation.  This is a great illustration of how far we have come.
  2. Finally, someone who folds fitted sheets the same way I do.
  3. Here you go, Lotto Dorks.  Stop wasting your money.
  4. Ever think you've had too much coffee?  Drink so much Red Bull that you can see into next week?  How much is too much?
  5. Hey, what are you pointing at?
  6. Here's a sweet site that let's you dig deep into our very weird past.
  7. I sincerely hope this catches on.

Why the Internet Was Invented, Vol 7

Here is this month's dive into the dusty corners of the internet.

  1. I wish I would have written this.  Absolutely brilliant.
  2. An Olympic montage from Muse.
  3. Little pigs, little pigs, let me come in...
  4. Just an Asian guy in lederhosen yodeling to chickens.  No big deal.
  5. If you thought the shake weight or the hula chair were bad I give you the newest Korean fitness craze.
  6. I'm with Neil.  Watch out, we've got a badass over here.
  7. How English sounds to non-English speakers.  Coincidentally, also how nagging women sound most of the time.
  1. How the world should actually look.  Yes, I know it's weird.
  2. Masterful graphite work of Paul Cadden.  No, these are not photographs.
  3. Destroy the web whenever you like.
  4. Frame-by-frame drawings of a Johnny Cash video.  Completely awesome.
  5. Trolling craigslist at its finest.
