Catholic Rebirth

Gnorb Philosophy, Random 1 Comment

I was raised a Catholic. Sort of. My family wasn’t particularly religious, although I did go to Catholic schools until the fourth grade. After that, I moved to the US, went to public school, and attended Baptist churches for a while where I was told that the Catholic church worshiped Mary over Jesus, and that it was the seat of …

Hiroshima: What Was it Like?

Gnorb Random, Videos Leave a Comment

This is a follow up to a previous post about the matter. Probably the most studied war today, World War II still holds us in fascination over the immensity of the odds at stake, the fairy tale like themes of good versus evil, and as an example of the lengths we will go to in order to win at war, …

Futurama as Anime

Gnorb Random Leave a Comment

I just thought this was incredibly cool: a guy decided to do a draw up showing what Futurama may have looked like as an anime. Click the image for the full size one. Aside from the complete lack of tentacles, short skirted uniforms showing off white panties, mecha [Edit: D’oh! Forgot, Bender and Tinny Tim.], and the absurdly large breasts, …

Odds and Ends: Life, Rebooted

Gnorb Life, Random, Site Updates, Web Tools 2 Comments

The title doesn’t really mean anything. I haven’t rebooted my life, though I have rebooted my eating patterns. (It comforts me little to know that if I were a caveman I would have a genetic advantage over my skinnier counterparts.) “Life, Rebooted” sounds kind of cool, though, in a “oh hey, Windows crashed again!” sort of way. Anyway, here are …

Ok, so the election has passed and I can now get back to regular blogging, right? Actually, the election’s been over for a while and I’ve just needed a break from real blogging (as if I’ve ever actually done any of that before). At any rate, it’s (about darn) time for another episode of Le Linkage! Today’s episode features all …

Quadruple Bypass… Burger?

Gnorb Random 4 Comments

I think I’m going to puke. What a whopper! This towering 8,000-calorie beefburger’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. It has four slabs of beef weighing 2lbs, three cheese layers, four bacon rashers, lettuce and tomato. The Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona, has wheelchairs to cart off belly-busted customers who tackle the Quadruple Bypass Burger. Also on the menu is …
