"Dead sharks and dolphins are washing ashore. Crabs, turtles and birds are being found soaked in oil as the slick sloshes into Louisiana’s wetlands. South of New Orleans, chocolate-like globs of oil have shut down the public beach."

The Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art features a series of arresting images from medication ads that depict (I assume) depression, paranoia, anxiety and schizophrenia, but also bliss. Surrealism seems to be the preferred visual style for conveying mental states all around the world, although abstraction, psychedelia, conventional illustration, sculpture and noirish photography are also represented here. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/poster-gallery?cid=35The Japanese Gallery of Psychiatric Art features a series of arresting images from... more

I'm guessing not only will your teacher see that the label isn't a thin strip of glossyness but even at a tiny picture distance there's something wrong about the text on the label. According to the creator, by scanning and photo shopping a cola label you can sneak in the answer hints for any exam. Unless again, your teacher notices you staring at the label too much.I'm guessing not only will your teacher see that the label isn't a thin... more

Yesterday Insane Clown Posse released a viral par excellence. They made a beautiful video for their Juggalo ninjas, called Miracles.
The song discusses the marvelous phenomena of the everyday.
They investigate those things that cannot be explained by scientists because "y'all motherfuckers lying and getting me pissed."
ICP express a Walden-esque wonder for the world, and will not accept the empirical evidence of so-called experts.
They ask poignantly rhetorical questions... "Fukken magnets... how do they work?"
Fukken magnets how do they work?
These are some more questions, that we should all be asking...
Fukken cab'nits... how do they work?
Fukken beep'rs... how do they work?
Fukken nets... how do they work?
Fukken rowboats... how do they work?
Fukken abstinence-only sex education how do they work?
Fukken dragnets... how do they work?
Do you have a "Fukken... how do they work?"
Here's a template.

So, some people like to call things FAILs, when they aren’t FAILs at all. I try to look for the glimmer of goodness in everything, so this is another edition of some FAILs that I don’t think are really FAILs.
This isn't so much of a FAIL as it is a supreme dedication to irony. Some might say "your child will be seriously injured if he IS NOT wearing a helmet." This father says "my child will be seriously injured because he IS wearing a helmet."
Before the internet, the only way police agencies caught child predators was by selling fake copies of child pornography at Sam Goody. When Sam Goody filed for bankruptcy, they had to develop new strategies.
This is not a FAIL. If you support diversity, you should support Pepsi's first furry / s&m spokesmodel. This is a huge development for that community.
Yes, they wrote SAFETY SHOP in Impact font. Yes, that is the font most associated with FAILs. That does not make this picture FAIL worthy.
This is only a FAIL if the woman visits the Serengeti. She will either be confused for an ostrich, and mauled by lions. Or she will be confused for a lioness, and join their den. This isn't so bad but I bet it'd be really hard to check your e-mail.
Okay, I'll admit it... that's an ugly statue. FAIL accepted!
Are you really going to be the person to tell this guy that his head-sized muscle is a FAIL? If he finds your IP address, it's squashing time.
Catch up on your FAILs that aren’t FAILS.

[UPDATE: Please note that when posting a story you should leave source links in your description text if you intend to include them or pull media from those links for your story. It does not matter where in the description they appear, just note that the link closest to the top of the description text will be your primary source, and you can pull media from up to five other sources. Thanks!]
While news of our new Fall episodes has been at the forefront these days, that doesn't mean that our dev team has been twiddling their thumbs. To the contrary, we're happy to announce that there is a new release hitting Current.com today, and we can't wait to hear what you think of it.
Let's face it, contributing to Current.com has never been the easiest thing to do -- a refresh of this workflow has been long overdue. With this new release, clicking the "Post a Story" button (located in the green navigation bar) will now produce a submission tool overlaid on whichever page you're on.
We've streamlined the process, here's a walkthrough:
Title and Description Please: We now offer only two initial fields to enter, one for Title and one for Description. The new tool will work with you to customize your post, while putting the focus where it counts: clearly titling your post and adding a description.
Link it up: Adding a link to your post is super simple -- merely copy the link into your description field. Once you paste a link, the submission tool will immediately process any and all available media (photos, video embeds, etc.) on the source page and offer them as selections for you to include in your post. Click on the one that makes the most sense, and you're one step closer to posting.
Place your post where it counts most: A story is only as good as its location, and we use groups and tags to help place stories in areas that make the most sense on Current.com. You'll find an easy groups dropdown menu pre-populated with all of the groups you belong to, along with an open field for tags. Tags are important. They help lost stories find groups to live in. If you don't belong to a group that you think the story might make sense in, use relevant tags to help it along its merry way. It's like Mom always said, "Don't forget your lunch tags!"
Tired of the minors? Time to go pro!: Anyone can submit links to Current.com, but it takes a true professional to raise the bar by posting alongside video, images, or webcams. Clicking the "add video/image/webcam" link, you'll open the secret door to file uploading, webcam recording, and embedding video. Are you up for the challenge?
Those of you who mastered our older submission workflow will recognize that all of the essential pieces are still here, just repositioned and streamlined.
Since we're never content leaving well enough alone, we've also taken an initial stab and refining our commenting workflow as well.
You'll notice that at the bottom of each post there is now an open comment box (regardless of login/logout status). This new comment flow acts similarly to the new submission tool. Clicking into the comment field allows you to type up a response, and you can add links and select media by following similar steps.
And as always, if you've connected your Current.com account to Facebook, you can publish your awesome stories and comments to your Facebook feed to share with your friends.
So what do you think? Does this make things easier? Is it simple enough? Shoot us some feedback on our Get Satisfaction page, and help us out with future product releases.[UPDATE: Please note that when posting a story you should leave source links in your... more
Hey Currenteers, it's time once again for another product release on Current.com. This time around we've made some improvements to our thumbnail creation process. You may recall the grey "image processing" thumbnails that would show up when you submit a new item to Current?
Well, the team has worked diligently to reduce the amount of time needed to create a thumbnail for new submissions. This means faster thumbnails, and hopefully less time with "image processing" messages on Current.com. Keep an eye on the new feed, which is a stream of new submissions to Current.com, and check out how quickly new thumbnails resolve. Spiffy!
Special thanks to our dev team! You guys rock!
And that's not all! We've received some steady feedback regarding a mobile version of Current.com. While our iPhone and Andriod compatible version of Current.com have been in the wild for some time, we haven't fully supported other mobile browsers to the mix...until today.
Point your digital leash of choice to http://m.current.com/ to access a mobile version of Current.com. This is, we stress, a test of the mobile webapp, but please let us know how things go. Shoot us feedback, suggestions, and bugs (include your device and browser type) over on our Get Satisfaction page for Mobile Current.
As always let us know what you think in the comments,

You may not be aware of Peter Porker: Spider-Ham, but in Issue #3 of the humor comic, a certain Iron hero was combined with a very familiar looking mouse.
Which after today's important news is darkly funny and way too possible.
