Clever Wall-E ad

(Can't say I'm excited about the movie. The robot looks like a combination of two of my least favorite robots - - ROB and Short Circuit, and I'm apparently the only person on the planet who hated Ratatouille.)

Lego: Weighted Companion Cube Cave Racer

And from the same gallery, a Lego powersuit:

How to get traffic with StumbleUpon

I don't use any of the social sites, but if you're interested in using StumbleUpon, here's some tips.

Ghost Rider, Doc Ock, Spider-Man, Thor Mighty Muggs

Kind of horrifying to watch. The Earth is going to be a pretty bizarre place in 50 years. Via.

Party Ideas For Math Nerds?

Slashdot has some funny ideas (mixed amongst a lot of bitter comments):

The trick is to do things she and her friends like in unexpected and subtle ways. For example, arrange the appetizers in the Fibonacci series (or get really daring and stack them vertically using Pascal's triangle). Use geometry to decorate (especially Pi)

Don't forget drinking games: It's not that hard, you just pick a card and drink half the sum of the prime factors in fingers. If you get it wrong, you have to stand on your head and recite pi backwards (as hard as it sounds.)

Plush: The Monsters of Rock

By The Greatful Thread.

Pastel Galactus with a spray can, perhaps?

I don't really know what this is. I was able to figure out that it's the cover of "Monster Movie," the debut album by Can from 1969, but not much else. You can sample several tracks at Amazon. There's a bit of information in the Wikipedia entry. Image spotted here.

Some funny lines from the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner

George Bush: "Senator McCain's not here. He probably wanted to distance himself from me a little bit. You know, he's not alone. Jenna's moving out too. Hillary Clinton couldn't get in because of sniper fire and Senator Obama's at church."

Craig Ferguson, host of CBS' "Late Late Show": "Vice President Dick Cheney is already moving out of his residence. It takes longer than you think to pack up an entire dungeon."

Buy your own Super Mario Bros. Invincibility Star

Luckily these Super Mario Singing Glow Stars showed up from Japan at just the right time. Put one of these little beauties on your desk and anytime you need protection just hit the button on the back. The Star flashes on and off and plays the invincibility song just like the Super Mario Brothers game. VoilĂ ! instant invincibility for the duration of the snappy little tune.

Buy. Via.

(Of course, what I'd really like is a mallet that played the Smash Bros. music.)
