Star Wars Tunisia Set



Well, this is flippin' sweet! Turns out that the original Tatooine set from the first Star Wars film is still intact and right where George Lucas left it, in the middle of the North African Desert, in a secret spot in Tunisia. Tatooine Lives!!!! Whats really cool is that locals have moved in and now its their home. The 'Star Wars bar' , as the author puts it, which I assume he means the Mos Eisley Cantina is there too!! This is just too surreal. I wanna go!

Real Tatooine

Before CGI

Before CGI we had Ray Harryhausen. From 'Sinbad' and 'Jason and the Argonauts' back to 'It Came from beneath the Sea' his work has captured millions. Don't forget about 'Clash of the Titans' !!! Cool music too.

Barbie Pooper Scooper Edition?

What the fuck? I would've liked to be at this design meeting. Is that shit in his bowl or scrumptious dog food? Looks like the poo and dog food double as the same thing. I wonder...if you lift his tail will a turd pop out or do you have to place it there taking all the realism out of the experience for youngsters. Next in line for production, Cat Piss Carpet Cleaning Barbie.

Pauly Shore Knocked the Fuck Out

May be staged but it looks kind of real. I hope its real cause Pauly Shore really sucks at comedy. Also, shows what a pussy he is. As soon as the cowboy fatboy gets on stage Pauly acts like a fairy...' Dude, Dude, Ok, Wait, Dude...'

Verizon Can't Count

















This has been getting some heavy coverage on the net lately. There are actually 2 or 3 recordings of customers disputing their bills because Verizon can't tell the difference betweem .002 dollars and .002 cents. The rates are different for each instance of Verizon stupidity. Dolts! The Consumerist has the audio and video for ya!

IRS Taxation of Online Games



This is the most retarded thing I have ever heard!!!!! I can understand taxing the guys that create characters(and level them up) only to later sell them on EBay for alot of money ,but this law would apply to ALL players. WEAK! WEAK I SAY!Gamers say hello to Form 1099. I blame the Chinese for ruining the economies by farming materials 24/7 and selling them for cheap. Of course, this law wouldn't apply to them.
