Mars Rover and Mitt

by Chexy on September 28, 2012

A Mars Rover photo transmitted this morning, showing what may have been a stream (left), and a spraytanned Mitt Romney (right) campaigning at Univision.

After spending millions of dollars, erosion reveals the possibility that life was once possible.

A Chimp Off the Old Block

That gorgeously mottled model of royal fabulousness, Cayetana, Duchess of Alba, as she appeared last night in Madrid (left) and the skeleton of a chimpanzee (right) just put on display today at the Grant Museum of Zoology in London.

Both gorgeous without a stitch of makeup.

Thursday Pix: Outer Space

My cousin sent me this cool video made from sequenced images from NASA’s Cassini and Voyager missions.

Remember, you’re a speck in the universe. Especially you.

Being Cheerful is Good for Your Heart

by Chexy on April 18, 2012

If you know any fuckheads, bastards or bitches (who shall remain nameless), you might want to advise them to lighten up a little… or not — because they’re likely to die sooner than their pleasantly optimistic frenemies.

According to a new Harvard School of Public Health study, cheerfulness may protect against heart problems! I’m sure that looking at a picture of Camilla or the Duchess of Alba also works.

Optimism, satisfaction with life, and general happiness seem to be linked with a reduction in heart and circulatory diseases — regardless of age, socio-economic status, smoking or even body weight. So at least be happy knowing that cunty fuckers will die early!

Please remind all those miserable sonsabitches you know that the disease risk may be as much as 50% lower for cheery sorts.

Sorry, you can’t just be cheerful. You’ve still got to eat right.

Amazing Marvels of Yesterday!

by Chexy on February 2, 2012

In a 1926 issue of Popular Mechanics, this was a prediction for a future airport in the sky, atop a nifty skyscraper.

Nice landing strip! (I’m sure some of you have heard that before.)

Amazing Marvels of Yesterday!

by Chexy on January 19, 2012

In 1957, Modern Mechanix said that within ten years we’d be driving to work in these.

I guess they meant fedoras.

I’m going to make a prediction. Within 10 years, you’ll drive your iPhone36 to work.
