Kim Kardashian naked in the latest edition of Harper’s Bazaar? Well, okay, Internet, if you insist! Some might wonder why I, a respected blogger of substantial intellectual heft and impeccable rhetorical style, would stoop to linking a story about Kim Kardashian naked in a major glossy magazine. To those people, I can only say…Rule 5. […]

This photo was taken in 1908 in in a city that today boasts a metropolitan area (the city and surrounding suburbs) of several million people. Any guesses? I’ll put the answer and the link to a high-resolution version of the picture after the jump. No cheating and clicking on the picture to get the filename […]

I don’t know who Charlie Brooker is, but I’m guessing, based on this revelatory report he’s now living under a new identity.

Even though it’s been out nigh unto forever (in internet years, which are like dog years except the multiplier is in days), I still laugh at the Hitler Downfall movie caption clips that pop up on YouTube.
