Taste Test! Ranking The Best Tasting Vodka in America

Published by under News

A2

Despite vodka being the No. 1 selling spirit in America, we’re somewhat convinced that the majority of its fans are eating their meals in dining halls and walking around in pajama pants. Vodka isn’t exactly a darling of the mixology community, but in terms of overall popularity, the numbers speak for themselves.

Last year, a consumer study revealed the top 5 vodkas preferred by American consumers, listing Grey Goose as the favorite. The study is in direct conflict with a 2005 New York Times blind tasting of 21 world-class vodkas, which ranked Smirnoff the “hands-down favorite.” So of course, HuffPost Taste had to put those top-5 finishers to the test. [Continue Reading]

I was surprised Vladimir didn’t make the Top 5! I loved that sh#t in college. I actually disagree with the best tasting Vodka, but it’s all good.

The World’s Drunkest Countries

Published by under News

Americans love to drink. That’s not exactly news. But what you might not realize is that when it comes to degenerate drunkenness, we are but mere amateurs when compared to the countries on this list. It makes sense when you consider that America is only a couple hundred years old – about the equivalent of a teenager in country years – while these other countries have had centuries to slowly obliterate their livers and learn how to talk to the cops without slurring their speech. Indeed, they are the nine drunkest countries in the world. -Neil Bulson

Well, if you’ve been to one of these countries you know that they get it in much more than we do in the United States. I wasn’t surprised to see the number one country although some of the other places were somewhat surprising.

The following is an excerpt from “1,227 Quite Interesting Facts” [W.W. Norton, $15.95], a collection of difficult to believe yet entirely true miscellanea, assembled by the creators of British quiz show, “QI.”

1. One in ten European babies is conceived in an IKEA bed.

2. Alfred Kinsey, author of Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948), had a collection of 5 million wasps and could insert a toothbrush into his penis, bristle-end first.

3. British spies stopped using semen as invisible ink because it began to smell if it wasn’t fresh.

I’d like to meet the guy who thought up the idea to use semen as invisible ink. It’s actually genius.

Jimmy Kimmel Admits ‘Twerking FAIL’ Video to be a Hoax

Published by under News

A

If you’ve been on the Internet in the last week, you most likely saw a video entitled “Worst Twerk Fail EVER – Girl Catches On Fire!” In the video, a girl performs a suggestive dance routine that goes completely awry, ending with the young lady apparently catching on fire.  The video instantly went viral, racking up over 9 million views in less than a week. Multiple TV and news outlets — including this site — reported on the video at face value. But until Jimmy Kimmel interviewed her on his talk show on Monday night, no one got the full story behind the viral video. Turns out the entire video was a hoax staged by Kimmel and his show. In the extended version of the clip, Kimmel walks through the door and extinguishes the fire. [Continue Reading]

Well played, sir. I don’t care who you are, to make a video that gets over 9 million views in less than a week is pretty damn impressive. I have to admit that last week I was asking people what the hell ‘twerking’ was. I don’t know if I’m getting older or staler or both but I don’t get ‘twerking’. Are kids doing this at high school dances now? What is this!?

Gnarly Nature Video of the Week: Watch This Decapitated Snake Bike Itself

Published by under News

If this snake wasn’t already dead, we’re pretty sure it is now.

An amazing video from Huntsville, Ala., shows a copperhead snake bite itself after being decapitated. Sam Billeter, who filmed the video, says he killed the snake — which had been hiding in his woodpile — so it wouldn’t bite his son or his dog. While this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of a decapitated snake that still had the ability to bite, it’s certainly the first time we’ve seen a snake’s head bite its own body.

[Click on this link to watch the video at The HuffingtonPost]

Every week we take a break from the crime, sex, and just plain stupidity of humanity to bring you a weekly nature article. Although we haven’t said it explicitly in the past, we do like to bring some education every week. This week we are educating our fan base on how snakes can bite themselves after their heads have been chopped off. I know this is a ridiculous comment but imagine if humans could still function for a short while after being decapitated. Yikes! Cool video though

Company Elysium Space Will Bury You in Outer Space When You Die For Less Than $2k

Published by under News

Earth_as_seen_from_space.tif

The public’s fascination with outer space travel has just beamed up a notch in what some might call a morbid manner. A new startup company called Elysium Space is taking orders to send your cremated remains (or those of any dearly departed) into Earth orbit for just under $2,000. Reservations are currently accepted for next summer’s first “memorial spaceflight” launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. According to its website, “Elysium Space offers awe-inspring celestial services to honor and celebrate the life of someone you love.” [Continue Reading]

Here’s the ironic part about this story: it’s actually cheaper to be buried in outer space than to have a wake, funeral, and after party like most people do these days. You could just fork over $2,000 and be buried in outer space. I haven’t really considered the perks to being buried in outer space vs. six-feet under in some yard somewhere. I guess if I had to pick I’d pick space. Oh wait, I’ll be dead so who gives a sh$t. There’s also something weird about telling your friends your loved one was cremated and thrown out the window in space.

Check Out This Surfer In Indonesia

Published by under News

Trash Slick

Waves for days. Trash for eternity. That’s what photographer Zak Noyle discovered on a recent trip to Java, Indonesia. The waves of Java, always known for being pristine and barreling, were now rolling swells of disgusting trash and debris. Noyle was shooting Indonesian surfer Dede Surinaya in a remote bay when he and Surinaya discovered the water to be covered in garbage, according to GrindTV. The bay was miles from any town, yet strong currents had carried the trash of the world’s most populated island, Java, to its once pure waters. [Continue Reading]

What’s the saying? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Well this is just disgraceful. I’m not going to go on an environmental rant, but we are destroying everything that is beautiful in the world. Gorgeous waters littler with trash. Shame

15-Million-Year-Old Whale Skull Found at General Robert E. Lee’s Birthplace

Published by under News

A

A 15 million-year-old, 1,000-pound whale skull was found on the Potomac River shore of Virginia’s Stratford Hall Plantation — the birthplace of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee (born in 1807, which suddenly seems like not such a long time ago). The skull is from a baleen whale — a toothless filter-feeder, according to a Calvert Marine Museum press release. At six feet long, it’s one of the largest whale skulls ever collected in the area. The rest of the skeleton is still buried in the cliffs. In its press release, the museum said the whale “would have been 25 or more feet long.” [Continue Reading]

Look – yesterday I posted an article about a drunk guy who woke up with no penis so I had to redeem myself today with something that will stimulate you intellectually. This was the perfect opportunity for that. A.) It’s Civil War history and B.) It’s science. So what I want you do do is hit some of the links above – read up and learn and then tomorrow I’ll be back with some asinine crime or something of that nature. Today is about learning folks. Make it happen.

Man Dies Right After Winning Beer Drinking Contest

Published by under News

A2

Joaquín Alcaraz Gracia claimed the title of beer drinking champ during a festival in Spain Wednesday, but his victory was short-lived. The 45-year-old man died after the beer drinking contest, during which he reportedly consumed six liters of brew (about 12.5 pints) in 20 minutes. According to local reports, Gracia won the drinking festival’s top prize and hoisted his trophy into the air. But the event, held in the Gea y Truyols district of Murcia, took a tragic turn soon after when Gracia began to vomit and didn’t stop. By the time the medical team arrived, Gracia was reportedly in cardiac arrest. The 45-year-old was rushed to a local hospital, but passed away shortly after his arrival Wednesday night. [Continue Reading]

At least Mr. Gracia went out as a champion. At first, the title appears to be some kind of humorous story, but then you read about what happened after and it takes a dark turn (which should be expected when talking about death). The coroners are saying that beer potentially contributed to his death, but there was probably some kind of heart issue.

Adult Film Star Andy San Dimas Kicked Out of PNC Park For Dancing Around with a Unicorn Mask On

Published by under News

A3

Adult film star Andy San Dimas was kicked out of PNC Park for provocatively dancing while wearing a unicorn mask during the July 13th Pirates-Mets game, according to Deadspin. A witness told the site that a young woman in a unicorn mask was sitting in front of him at the game. Her friend announced that the masked woman was a “major triple x star” who would be stripping later that night at Cheerleaders Gentleman’s Club in Pittsburgh. The witness states that the woman was engaging in a clothed “sexy stripper dance.” She refused to stop when an usher asked her, and when confronted by security, ended up leaving the ballpark.

To be honest with you, I had no idea who Andy San Dimas was so needless to say I was pleased to find out it was a female adult film star, not a male. And while we find dancing around a baseball game in a unicorn mask to be the crappiest way to promote an appearance at a local gentleman’s club, I can say I am not tuned into Andy San Dimas’ work. So whatever you want to make of it, it got her name out there and that’s a success.
