And On The 8th Day, God Created Halladay

For only the second time in postseason history and in his playoff debut no less, Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay threw a no-hitter. Oh yeah, it was also his second one of the year, having already thrown a perfect game in May. For his encore, Red Doctober plans to throw the ball so hard that the earth spins backward and Superman will get a second chance to save Lois Lane. Enjoy your championship trophy and MVP award - it's only a matter of time.

Anyone Hungary?

Toxic red sludge from a Hungarian alumina plant reached the Danube on Thursday, turning the once immortalized "Blue Danube" into a river of frothy red badness. Normally Gwar or possibly even Slayer would have been blamed for such a catastrophe but the boils, flies, and darkness that followed point to Moses as the main culprit. God had no comment.

Chock Full Of Melty Goodness

What happens in Vegas will very much stay in Vegas...especially if the mother effin' death ray at the Vdara melts you. Apparently, when the Nevada sun hits the concave, all-glass facade of the new hotel in Las Vegas, it creates a beam of concentrated solar energy that falls over the pool area and can melt plastic and singe hair. Management is considering marketing it as a preview of the hellfire that will one day consume the entire city.

Ronald McDonald: Enemy Of The State

See that pink goo? It's mechanically separated chicken. This is what the chicken nugget looks like before it arrives on your plate in pleasing nugget form. It's also soaked in ammonia to kill bacteria and then shot up with artificial chicken flavor and color. Somewhere back in time, my 8 year old doppelganger just said FML. Next thing you're going to tell me is that hot dogs have a suspect creation as well.

You Are Likely To Be Eaten By A Grue

"West of House. You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door. There is a small mailbox here." If you recognize that sentence, can identify the picture, or know what a grue is, then you are a supreme dork. And if we were dorks too (which, of course, we're not), we would then tell you to go to Portable Quest. But that's all we're going to say.  /open mailbox

And The Award For Father Of The Year Goes To...

Some dads take their kids to baseball games. Other dads go hunting or fishing. Maybe there's a few dads who take their sons to The Sound of Music singalongs...fine by us, we don't judge. And then there's the dad who grabs a weather balloon, straps on an HD camera and an iPhone for GPS tracking, and sends that bad boy into space just to see what will happen. I want to party with this guy:
