OMG

Poodle Doodles

A new trend has emerged. That of turning your beloved canine friend into a mobile work of ‘art’. I use the term ‘art’ loosely here, of course.

Essentially people are cutting and dying the hair of poodles and other unfortunately fluffy dogs, to resemble other creatures, such as Panda’s, Pirates and Fairy’s. It is as crazy as it sounds and the results are just as mind numbingly hilarious.

Moon… Kaboom!

So let me get this straight… NASA are set to anal-probe the dark side of the Moon, in order to discover the possibility of the presence of water?Moon - Sattelite & Rocket

I am not sure when the idea of molesting the Moon became a good idea, but this has the potential to end rather disastrously. To make my point even clearer, NASA is not even denying that ‘big surprises’ lie in wait:

"We’re not 100 percent sure what will happen, and big surprises are possible" ~ Brian Day of the NASA/Ames Research Center in California

As if the myriad of blockbuster movies detailing the end of the world was not enough, along with the most recent ramblings of 2012 being the end, courtesy of those blasted Mayans; how on Earth does this seem like a good idea?

Several possible outcomes exist from this scientific endeavour.

  • The scientists will discover water on the Moon; resulting in copious geekasm’s.
  • The scientists will not discover water on the Moon; resulting in a potential rise in suicide’s.
  • The Moon will be knocked off orbit or into a rotation of some kind; resulting in the end of the world.
  • The Moon may crack and shatter; resulting in the end of the world.
  • The aliens may declare this ‘scientific experiment’ as an ‘act of war’ and in direct violation of the Intergalactic Space Federation’s peace clause, due to the unlawful battering of a celestial body; resulting in the end of the world.

Well, whatever the outcome, I will be sure to reserve my front row seat to this ambiguous ‘surprise’ laden event. For those who are interested, the Moon is set to be violated today at 13:30 (GMT+2). You may watch the event unfold online here or watch it ‘live’ below.

Oh My ‘Canned’ Guava!

Make no mistake. When I talk about a ‘guava’, not only am I referring to the corporeal fruit of the same name, but also to all of the humourous connotations associated with Eve’s forbidden fruit. Thus, when I came across this gem of a picture, I could not resist the urge to create a post about it.

Canned Guava

As if guava’s cut in half are not descriptive enough, just imagine the kind of conversations or ‘Oh My Guava’ moments that could be brought about with this fantastically divine image of ‘canned guava’! Yum!

Wordy Wednesday: ‘Vocab101’

Vocab101 Emblem For those who do not know, Vocab101 is my daily attempt to find a new and interesting word which could potentially be used in everyday circumstances. The words I find range from the obscene, to the unbelievably true (which are hyperlinked in blue) and, of course, the colloquial. Thus, Hans’ Milieu now has a ‘Wordy Wednesday’.

Each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will take place on Wordy Wednesdays and will contain all the words I have tweeted over the course of one week from the previous Vocab101 session (7 days, 7 new words). Furthermore, each Hans’ Milieu edition of Vocab101 will contain additional new words which did not make the original cut, but are just as tantalising/disturbing!

Vocab101:

  • Biphonal – Using more than one phone at the same time. For example: Talking on one mobile phone while texting on another.

  • Drailing – Sending out e-mails, most often to ex-partners, whilst drunk.

  • Imonogamy – The practice of only using instant messaging as a form of communication. Yes, MXit counts.

  • Holidrawl – Adapting one’s speech patterns to match the local accent while on holiday.

  • Debauchelor – A groom whose bachelor party is particularly raunchy.

  • Cataglottism – A very rare word, used to describe kissing using one’s tongue.

  • Eccedentesiast – Someone who fakes a smile, such as a television presenter.

Vocab101-isms which missed the cut:

  • KrukolibidinousThe act of staring at someone’s crotch.

  • Lalochezia – Using foul or abusive language to relieve stress or to ease pain.

I do hope that you enjoyed this edition of Vocab101 and that you will return for some more Vocab101-isms in the near future.

“Pikachu… use FLASH”!

(As seen on Kotaku, via MaximumPC)Gloves?! Pikachu doesn't wear gloves!

“Wild Pikachu appeared!
Go Metapod!
Metapod used Harden!
Enemy Pikachu used Flash!
Metapod used String Shot!”

(Comment by Kotaku User: DJC89, 29 July 2009)

As a self-confessed Pokémon fan, I could not resist sharing the above photograph with all of you.

I may not be into costume role-playing (cosplay) but if Miss Pikachu is anything to go by, or her friends for that matter, I may very well have to re-evaluate my stance on the subject… *loses focus and drools slightly onto the keyboard*

 

 

For those who do not know; Cosplay, short for "costume role-play", is a type of performance art whereby participants outfit themselves with an elaborate costume of some kind, which is often adorned with theme specific accessories, that represents a specific character, idea or theme.

Cosplay participants ("cosplayers") form a subculture centered around wearing their costumes and re-enacting scenes or inventing likely behaviour inspired by their chosen sources. In some circles, the term cosplay has been broadened to include simply wearing a costume, without special consideration given to enacting characters in a performance context.

(Wikipedia, 2009)

So you see, having nerdish tendencies is not all bad. Admittedly a little strange, but not as bad as the stereotype would have you believe.
