But that’s not always bad. Here you get three awesome stories, one post…
They are some C R A Z Y, amusing and thoughtful stories/pics found on the internet, out and about on Non-News Friday today…
And though they have no connection to one another?
In my mind there was a link thanks to their individual awesomeness.
That must be respected…
And pointed out.
Question first though, do you swim in the ocean?
[via Deadspin] Drew Magary — That’s the lion’s mane jellyfish, which lives in the ocean and can apparently devour cities whole. I had no f******g idea this existed. COMPLETELY CHANGES THE GAME. I’m never going in the ocean again. Ever. I’m afraid to even take a g*****n bath now, lest this thing ooze out of the pipes and eats my g*****n house. This thing is the Unicorn of the deep.

How about now?
Probably for the best.
What about trespassing (committing crime) in Texas, ever think about doing that?
HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - A son, wanting to protect his family’s Hudson home, had a large sign made for his front yard. He says it’s a promise, not a threat, to would-be burglars.
The sign reads, “Try to break into this house again, your head will be blown off.”
Last Wednesday, Steve Holland’s 71 year-old mother, Claudia, had just turned off the TV around 11:30 p.m. when she heard a “whop” sound as someone kicked open her front door.
She says her three tiny dogs, Jessie, Hank and Speedy went nuts, barking ferociously at the people on the other side of the door.
“It was scary because I thought what am I going to do?” said Claudia.
She called police, and she now has a new door and deadbolt. However, that wasn’t enough for her son.
“The idea that if she hadn’t had those dogs to kind of scare them off… what could’ve happened,” said Steve Holland.
He was out of town on business, but he says 99% of the time someone else is with her in the home. Still, he wanted to do something else to keep the home safer. He immediately called his friends at Lufkin’s Adfab to make the large sign for the front yard.
“I just wanted to put out a big enough message not just to whoever broke-in, but the rest of the community,” said Steve.
It was put on the lawn just a few days ago, and already the family has gotten so many calls laughing at the sign. Steve says it’s not a joke, there’s three guns in the home.
“You’re lucky she dialed 9-1-1 instead of getting the gun out of her walker,” said Steve.
He says whoever tries to break-in next won’t be as fortunate. [Read More]
If I were you?
Texans are aces when translating their dislike for trespassers and ‘would be’ criminals, into reasons for target practice.
And speaking of translations? [Wow...Witness how my minds jumps from topic to topic - Scary.]
Translate: In other words, expressing a meaning but using different words to do so?
Yes, THIS totally sums up an accurate translation of the PROPER names for a few websites…
At least this reads what they SHOULD read:
[via Newslite] At first glance they may just look like the logos from some of the biggest brands in the world. But on closer inspection you’ll see that these are ‘honest logos’.
A graphic designer from Sweden has tinkered with the instantly recognisable logos to make them more descriptive and honest.
So the YouTube logo has seen the words switched for “Cat Videos” while Facebook has become “Procrastination” and Nintendo is now “Nothing To Do”.
Personally we don’t know whether to be more impressed by the quality of the logos or how accurately Viktor Hertz has summed up some of the brands. Excuse us while we go and update our Procrastination page.Speaking to Newslite, 28-year-old Hertz said that while it takes a while to come up with the ideas, each logo only takes him a couple of minutes to knock up on his computer.
He said that the logos are not created because he hates the companies, but simply because he wanted to “make a funny point about something”.
“I made adbusted logos a long time ago, but now I redefined the concept and wanted to be a bit more serious,” he said.
“It’s just a couple of silly ideas, and now lots of people seem to have seen them, which is insane.
Asked which one he thought was the most honest, he said: “I guess it’s the Calories/Carlsberg one, you can’t argue with that (which you can with most of the others). [Read More]
Although I get most of the honest logos, I don’t get the YouTube one…
