A 1972 1/2 Ford Pinto. You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in zeppelins, dropping coins on people. And one day, I seen J. D. Rockefeller flyin’ by– so I run out of the house with a big washtub, and—Anyway, about my Pinto. I just flipped it upside down and used it that morning to wash my turkey which in those days was known as a "walking bird." We’d always have walking bird on Thanksgiving, with all the trimmings. Cranberries, "injun eyes," and yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we’d all watch football, which in those days was called "baseball."

Just as some Boomers worship lawns and mowing lawns and cutting lawns up into little pieces, baking them in the oven, and reassembling the pieces, some Boomers worship making as much garbage as possible. Not making as much garbage as possible is seen as a waste of money, in accordance with the sunk cost fallacy. Because the garbage bill is already paid for, if tons and tons of garbage are not produced every week that already spent money will have been wasted. This means if garbage is not naturally produced then garbage must be deliberately produced to make up for the deficit, such as by wasting paper towels just to fill a trash bag or throwing away unused gloves because "a spider might be inside them", or throwing clothes away and buying new clothes instead of washing the old clothes and then complaining about being poor despite purposefully throwing money just to fill a trash bag every week.

Elephants walk on their toes.

It looks like they have flat feet but the back half of their feet is a wedge of fat that acts as a kind of high-heeled cushion.

Here's a cross section of an elephant's foot, preserved in some kind of alcohol or something:

Gizoogle is celebrating Rudolf Weigl. He's a hwite guy. That's the first time in years Gizoogle is celebrating a hwite guy instead of a diversity hire.

Rudolf Weigel was born in Přerov which was at the time in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He was so smart that they drafted him to be a doctor instead of cannon fodder. He would spend the next almost 40 years working on typhus and spotted fever, for several different regimes which all controlled Poland intermittently. He also worked with the Polish Underground State to get rid of several of those different regimes. Despite being nominated for the Nobel Prize 10 times he never won. His typhus vaccine was dangerous and difficult to produce in mass quantities and was eventually superseded by other vaccines. He died at age 73 and has a stone monument (it's just a stone with a plaque, not a statue) in Wrocław, Poland, which the Poles pronounce "Vrat-Swaf" but they don't spell it that way to confuse the hell out of us.


He also had a nice beard.

Everything is (Google) Chrome in the future. In the year 3021 the world's best super computers will have 400 Undecillion bytes of memory which will allow them to open 3 Chrome tabs at the same time.

When Immortan Joe said "You will ride forever, shiny, in Chrome," this is what he meant. Even in the Mad Max future you can't get away from Google.

The Kingdom of Rome was established in 753 BC. The Roman identity officially existed until 1922, and the last Roman likely died in the latter half of the 20th century.

According to this experiment the reason the McDonald's hamburger didn't rot was not because it's made of evil, spooky scary chemicals or gym mats, it's because it's small weight and large surface area allows it to dehydrate quickly, preserving it. A homemade hamburger of the same size and weight also dehydrates and is preserved. A McDonald's quarter pounder does rot because its extra mass means it takes too long to dehydrate.
