Dollar Shave Club almost makes me want to shave

Dollar Shave Club almost makes me want to shave

I work from home, so most days I don't even bother with pants. Dressed up for folks like me is boxers without pizza stains. I certainly don't think about shaving until I'm somewhere between Grizzly Adams and Ben Roethlisberger. However, Dollar Shave Club makes me want to shave. Okay, that's a lie. Dollar Shave Club does make me think about shaving though, which is something the wife has so far been unsuccessful with.

Insane adrenaline junkie “Birdman” releases video of his near death

Insane adrenaline junkie “Birdman” releases video of his near death

Check out the image below this paragraph. No, that isn't some dude planking in a really weird warm-up suit on the side of the mountain in South Africa. What you're seeing is a daredevil that goes by "The Birdman" as he flies from a much higher point on that mountain range to the ground below using a specially designed wing-suit to allow him to glide/fly, sort of like a flying squirrel.

A very strange video has surfaced this week that claims to show an extinct woolly mammoth wading through a river. There are several obvious issues, the biggest of which is the fact that the mammoth has been extinct for thousands of years.

Austrian daredevil to jump from 23 miles above the Earth’s surface

Austrian daredevil to jump from 23 miles above the Earth’s surface

This stunt is so totally insane it's hard to imagine someone would have the idea of actually pulling it off. Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner plans to pull off a stunt sponsored by the energy drink Red Bull that will lift him 23 miles above the Earth's surface to the edge of space. Once at that altitude, he will jump and free fall back to earth while breaking the sound barrier. I wonder if that means he won't be able to hear his own screams.

Strange objects found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea create a stir

Strange objects found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea create a stir

The Captain and crew of an ocean salvaging operation made an interesting find in the Baltic Sea, which was apparently originally discovered by a company called Ocean Explorer. The new crew is a company specializing in deep-sea salvage, and it appears that they have happened on the same wreck that the Ocean Explorer company found a while back. I recall the photo having surfaced previously because it looks a lot like the Millennium Falcon to me. The team has no idea what the object they discovered using deep-sea side sonar might be.

If you are the sort who can't stand being away from Facebook out of fear of missing a post or a poke from a pal, we found the bed for you. Sure, you could do what most people do and just charge your smartphone at the bedside, but this concept is better for the true Facebook fan. It's called the Facebook bed. I imagine Zuckerberg has something similar.

Awesome exhibit shows mythological creature skeletons

Awesome exhibit shows mythological creature skeletons

Growing up I really liked movies that had mythological creatures in them and Greek mythology in general. I was particularly fond of the idea of strange creatures like the centaur and the Cyclops. If you have a fascination for mythological creatures like flying lions, horse/men, and one-eyed giants and live in Tucson, Arizona, you need to check out the exhibit at the International Wildlife Museum.

Oddest questions asked in job interviews this year by tech firms

Oddest questions asked in job interviews this year by tech firms

I have worked at real jobs in the past surrounded by people that were possibly the biggest idiots on earth. I knew we have all wondered at one point who exactly interviewed this person next to us in the office and decided they were worth hiring. If you don't know that person in the office, odds are you are that person everyone wonders about. I've never been asked a really weird question in a job interview, but I would be willing to be that many geeks have.
