are magazine subscriptions a window to the soul?

uh, last year, that is. whatever. ANYWAY, point is, nikola tesla was awesome and a genius and kind of nuts, but what certified genius isn’t a little off-kilter? learn more. also, check out that photo of him in his lab. there’s a giant arc of electricity crackling above his head and he’s totally chilling, sitting there memorizing that entire book with his photographic memory in probably 10 minutes flat.

also, a shout out to the totally awesome nikola tesla poster from ‘cloudy with a chance of meatballs’.

check out these cool animal pendants! i want the sloth.

oh god, hilarious. i almost wet myself at one point.

Del Monte:

I love your little Mandarin orange snack cups. They are delicious. But the regular cups, while delightful, are a bit too cloying for my taste. So, when I was at the store and saw ‘no sugar added’ Mandarin orange cups, I was pretty excited. However, the ‘no sugar added’ oranges taste chemical-y. I’m not sure if this is the fault of the Splenda, or if insufficiently sweetened Mandarin oranges just taste a bit acrid, but I will not be purchasing this disappointing again. I would suggest introducing a ‘lightly sweetened’ version of your Mandarin oranges, to complete your product line á là Lipton teas.



My favorites from the year.

josh duhamel was on regis and kelly this morning (i’m watching it now) and martin short co-hosted. josh duhamel, a big martin short fan as it turns out, gels his hair up, hikes up his jeans, and starts dancing around like ed grimley. it was AMAZING. i used to think josh duhamel was kind of a douche, but now he’s fantastic.
