Why Are?.. – Presented By Google [PICTURES]

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on January 31st, 2010 in Humor, Politics, Stuff

Google Recently, I decided to conduct a Google experiment and write down what the search engines suggests for the phrase "why are" followed by all kinds of nationalities, races, and localities (alright, "recently" seems to be last March, as evident from the Google theme, but I only decided to post this now).

I did this just for fun and found most of the results funny, some hilarious, and some offensive and controversial.

However, all of them have a reason for being there – statistics. It's what people search for. The cream of the crop. Stereotypes, hilarities, it's all here.

If you can, please don't take them too close to heart. In fact, if you're a righteous conservative thinking of lecturing me, …


My New Android Phone Wants Me To Do WHAT?

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 18th, 2009 in Android, Humor, WTF?

image So, I just got me a new phone that I've wanted for a long time – HTC Hero running the Android OS.

It's a great phone, no doubt, but I think mine has homosexual inclinations.


Bad Android. Bad….

The Ultimate Programming Language – LOLCODE

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on December 16th, 2008 in Humor, Programming

image If you are a programmer, you, by definition, belong to the elite [awesome] human breed called geeks. If you know how to code in Python or Ruby, you might even think you’re pretty hot shit. But none of that compares in hotshitness to what you are about to learn.

Allow me to introduce LOLCODE – perhaps the most serious and, for some, cryptic, programming language. It is Turing-complete and uses an advanced compiler called Brainfuck (I’m still totally serious, and by the way if you’ve never heard of LOLCATS, then you’re not spending nearly enough time on the Internets. See the funny button that looks like a cross at the top right of your IE? Click it or your …

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while: a friend of mine by the name of Thaya took this picture at his office recently and shared it on nowthen.com. I love office pranks, and this one is world-class! Check it out.

Matt Dancing 2008 – Stunning [VIDEO]

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on June 22nd, 2008 in Awesomeness, Humor, My Favorites

Hey, it's Matt again from www.wherethehellismatt.com and his 2008 video is absolutely stunning. In short, Matt goes around the world and performs a little dance, purposely bad. The scenes from his videos were already amazing enough but this one absolutely tops them all. This my most favorite video in a long while.
Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) from Matthew Harding on Vimeo. Be careful, you may turn all teary-eyed for a minute, even if you're a guy – yeah….

Doctor to his patient: "Sir, you have to stop masturbating."

Patient: "Why, doctor?"

Doctor: "Because it's preventing me from examining you."

Computer Science majors out there that went through tedious hours of studying Lisp – this is for you from xkcd. If you know Perl, it will make even more sense.

Central Room of Potatoes

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on March 13th, 2008 in Humor, WTF?

Today Travis was messing around with a Chinese site blinkx has indexed a short while ago http://www.tudou.com and saw a cryptic error message that started coming up on all pages. The message looked something like this:


3月14日凌晨0:00 ~ 夜间24:00,我们的服务暂停24小时。
3月15日凌晨0:00 新机房就搬迁完成了,土豆会准时回家。

Now, neither Travis nor I know the language of Chinese, so what do we do? Go to Google Translate, of course. Here's what Google Translate produced:



Members potatoes:

Best Programming Comic Ever: Code Quality In WTFs/Minute

Courtesy of OSnews. This comic still cracks me up, weeks after I saw it. It's one of those comics that your CS teacher would print out and slap on his door, so that in the moments of doom students would at least have something humorous to look at. Here it is:

A Happy Weatherman?

Posted by Artem Russakovskii on December 10th, 2007 in Humor

Found this on digg today, which caused me to literally laugh out loud. Is this guy just too happy to report the weather or just looking to score a promotion?


Don't forget to read some of the digg comments. For example:

  • "Maybe he's hoping it'll just blow over."
  • "With a wang the size of Ohio you would think he would have a better job than local weather."
  • "Who would want a wang the shape of E.T.'s finger? Unless it's to "probe" people for all their memories like in American Dead"
  • "Well that was a hard one to look at."
