Simply The Best

Man puts Grim Reaper costume on a drone. Proceeds to use it to chase random people around a cemetery and park.

Future Memes

This is without a doubt the worst written article ever posted on Gawker.

But, I think it will be redeemed when some of the more bizzare parts of it become memes, including:

"His oppressively uncut penis."

And

"He suddenly transformed me and my anus into something terrible."

And:

"But there were two parts of his life that, like his mashed potatoes and peas, were never to touch."

And:

"I still pity the study abroad student who inherited my little cum-crusted pied-à-terre."

Also, the comments wonderfully break down exactly how bad the writing is.

True Lies

Back in high school your sex ed teacher told you that pulling out doesn't work to prevent pregnancy. He or she lied to you.

Whenever birth control topics pop up on website forums there are always a bazillion people who are like "My friends use the pull out method! Why are they so risky! How can I teach them the One True Path of hormones and/or condoms?"

I can see why they feel that way. Teachers make withdrawal seem terrifying for one reason - they don't trust 17 year old boys to have the self control to actually do it.

The truth is that for adults it is about as effective (and sometimes more so) than methods that people have no problem using.

Consider these facts:

In perfect use condoms have a 2 percent failure rate. Pulling out in perfect use has a 4 percent failure rate.

In typical use condoms have a 15 percent failure rate. In typical use pulling out has an 18 percent failure rate.

In perfect use a diaphragm with spermicide has a 6 percent failure rate - which is higher than pulling out.

I know this seems odd and the question that always comes up is "doesn't pre-ejaculate have sperm in it?"

The answer is "not usually." Pre-ejaculate only has sperm in it if the dude hasn't urinated since his last orgasm. Once a guy shoots some sperm ends up left in his tubes. Taking a pee completely flushes all of that out.

Pre-ejaculate itself contains no sperm and comes from a completely different part of the body than sperm does.

The bottom line - unless you are going for disease prevention - your friends who are using the pull out method are not being all that much riskier than anyone who is not using a hormonal method.

Fuck The Dornish

HBO has released a list of new Game Of Thrones cast members for the fifth season.

The downside - they have realized all our fears and are clearly going to have most of the season be about The Dornish, second only to The Ironborn in people even Game of Thrones fans don't give a living shit about.

It's almost existential to think about all of the incredibly boring side plots this will open up.

One can only hope that we at least get the zombie they forgot about at the end of the last season. Also the High Sparrow is one of the new characters which means we'll at least get the interesting Cersei plot line.

Anyway, here's the list:

Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell, the older brother of Prince Oberyn

Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell, Doran's son

Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon, Cersei and Jaime Lanniester's eldest child

DeObia Oparei as Areo Hotah, the captain of Doran Martell's palace guard

Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan, a former slave trader

Jessica Henwick as Nymeria Sand, second eldest of Oberyn Martell's bastard daughters

Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand, another daughter of Oberyn

Keisa Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand, Oberyn's eldest daughter

Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow a religious leader in King's Landing

Rock And Roll Trivia

It's that time again! You know the rules! I post the lyrics. You see how many song you can get without Google. Here we go!

1. There is a town in North Ontario.

2. You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

3. Captain America has been torn apart.

4. We all need someone we can cream on.

5.  Anger is an energy.

6.  Does anybody else in here feel the way I do?

7.  Do you believe in rock and roll? Can music save your mortal soul?

8. Virgil, quick come and see. There goes the Robert E. Lee.

9. We all believe the same things but see them from a different point of view.

10. I'm the son of rage and love.

Fuck The Police

France is banning Pro-Palestinian protest marches today. We all know just how well that went down last weekend.

Last week's banned protest was in the north side of Paris which is mostly tourist free. This one however is going to be right in the heart of the tourist district.

One can only imagine what will happen if American and UK tourists get tear gassed while running from angry mobs.

Impeachment

Man, the GOP is insane if they think impeaching Obama would be a good idea.

They tried that with Clinton - when they actually had evidence of him lying to a grand jury and couldn't win even then.

Plus, the Democrats didn't try to impeach Bush when there was a shit ton of evidence of him lying to Congress to get the Iraq war started and war crimes once the war was set in motion.

If they do impeach Obama that will make two Democratic presidents  in a row they've impeached - only to lose in the Senate.

And that means that the next time there is a GOP president and Democrats in the House the dude/lady will be impeached in  a matter of minutes, probably in their first term.

God, what a dump play this could end up being on their part.

It Means That I Love You

I feel like I should like Elvis Costello versions of Nick Lowe songs more than I like the Nick Lowe versions, but, you know what, fuck that shit, Nick Lowe  kicks Elvis Costello's ass.

Welcome To The Jungle

Lauren Hill shows up nearly an hour late for a concert and then gives the finger to and yells at the audience.

Finally, the hip-hop community knows what it's like to be a Guns N Roses fan.

If Axl only showed up 50 minutes late I'd consider it a win.
