Update: Looks like www.peopleofwalmart.comÂ crashed due to high traffic over the weekend.Â This makes me sad, hopefully it is back up soon.
From the website:
Letâ€™s face it; we all have seen the people who obviously donâ€™t have mirrors and/or family and friends to lock them in a basement, and they all seem to congregate at Walmart. Itâ€™s not everywhere that you can shop for milk at 10 a.m. next to a 400lb mother of 6 wearing a pink tube top, leopard tights, and hooker heels. Where else can one go to pick up underwear at 3 Oâ€™clock in the afternoon and spot the greatest mullet of all time paired with a mustard stained wife beater (which only accents the extreme amount of body hair) and camo pants that were actually used in Vietnam. And if you havenâ€™t ran into the 6â€™2â€ bull-dyke with a shaved head, rockin a wonder bra, flannel cutoff shirt, and jean shorts at 2 a.m. when youâ€™re there to pick up frozen pizza, chips, and cookies, then you can get the fuck out right now.
Here are some of my favorites.Â Visit www.peopleofwalmart.com for HOURS of fun!
Cool idea? Maybe in 2067 we’ll see a concept vehicle.Â Keep this fingers crossed!

Michael Jackson‘s body will be buried this week without his brain, which will be held for further testing.Â It will be tested for clues on the exact cause of death.
Jacksonâ€™s body was handed over to his family soon after the three-hour autopsy was completed and the Jacksons went on to order a second forensic examination.
But Dr Wecht said: â€œThe brain cannot be properly examined at the time of the autopsy. You cannot test it while it is in the body. So it is cut off at the spinal cord and removed.â€
The brain would usually be placed in a plastic bucket, suspended in formaldehyde fluid, and put in a refridgerator at 4C to preserve it. [mirror.co.uk]
Jackson died on Thursday, June 25th from a cardiac arrest after a suspected overdose of painkillers.
Let’s all learn from this, OK? Twitter is great.Â Twitter is fun.Â Blah blah blah.
However, you should NEVER risk your life just to let your friends know your current status.
Case in point:
A Romanian girl died while Twittering in the Bath tub.Â She reached to plug in her laptop and electrocuted herself to death.
A teenage girl was electrocuted after dropping her laptop into the bath as she twittered in the tub.
Police said they believed Maria Barbu, 17, had tried to plug in her laptop with wet hands after the battery died during a long session on social networking site Twitter as she took a soak at her home in Brasov, central Romania.
She was found dead by her parents with the laptop lying next to her. [Austrian Times]
I’ll let Panasonic speak for themselves:
Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it seems to come to life. A soft light emanates somewhere from within as the center of the device begins to slowly rise and fall, mimicking the tranquil motions of breath. Left undisturbed, the remote will slumber peacefully. But should a human hand approach, sensors inside alert it to the imminent touch. It stops breathing, grows rigid â€“ the light from within is extinguished.
Ick.Â Call me crazy, but a remote that gets an erection is more creepy than innovative.
Because of the economy, Disney Theme Parks no longer are employing the “Roller Coaster Boob Checker.” This is the person that gets paid to look through all the pictures taken on the drops to check and see if any females drop their tops.Â Those pictures usually get removed so young eyes don’t see boobies at the family oriented park.
Well, now the potential to see boobs at Disneyland has increased.Â Depending on the person, that will either be a good thing or a bad thing.Â Our planned family trip to Disneyland for my 4 year old’s birthday just got more interesting.

We have found the perfect addition to the “Torture Room” motif you’ve been working on for your dream home.Â This wood-and-glass Stake Chair was created by Russian designer Ton Guglya and it makes me squeeze my butt cheeks together in imaginary pain.Â Yikes.
This design was inspired by a medieval torture device called the â€œJudas Cradle” I know.Â Scary, right? Here’s a description of the torture:
The triangular-shaped end of the judas cradle was inserted in the victim’s anus or vagina. This torture could last, depending on some factors discussed below, anywhere from a few hours to complete days.
I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like a very inviting idea to base a chair on.Â But, to each his own, right?
