Oxford English Dictionary has 99-year old error

leave a comment »

Some Australian professor discovered an error in the Oxford English Dictionary and its been publishing the error for 99 years.

The definition of ‘siphon’ stated that atmospheric pressure is what drives a fluid to pass through. This is incorrect. Gravity actually does the trick.

Dictionaries have been known to purposely have errors in unimportant areas to make sure that other dictionaries aren’t plagiarizing their publications, but this is totally wrong.

In other news, experts are still trying to find a person in this world that gives a damn about this.

High School basketball star is actually 22-year old man

with one comment

Last year, Jerry Joseph¬†led Texas’ Permian High School basketball team to the state playoffs. The only problem was that Joseph was a 22-year old man from Ft. Lauderdale who already played high school ball the first time he was in high school!!

Joseph, whose real name is Guerdwich Montimere, was a naturalized U.S. citizen from Haiti and schemed his way into Permian by first enrolling in jr high school as a 15-year old. He told the basketball coach that he was homeless so the coach took him in.

Montimere was caught when coaches from Florida recognized him in a basketball tournament in Arkansas. He was arrested and charged for presenting false identification to a police officer.

Way to relive your high school glory days, dumbass. And, yes, thats the same school from Friday Night Lights.

Comedy Central developing a cartoon starring Jesus Christ

leave a comment »

In the midst of all the hubbub over using the image of Muhammed in South Park, it seems as if Comedy Central wants to bank on their controversial publicity.¬†The network is now developing a cartoon that would star Jesus Christ as the main character, focusing mainly on a son trying to live up to his father’s expectations.

There is nothing set in stone yet and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are not part of the development process so there is no word if the South Park version of Jesus would be the character in question.

But one thing is sure, there is going to be a LOT of fighting over this show if it gets produced.

Sleeping too little is bad. Sleeping too much is WORSE

leave a comment »

Let’s face it. You’re either the type of guy who sleeps 3 hours a day to maximize everything he does in life or the perennial dozer who somehow manages to sleep 12 hours a night without missing a beat on life.

Turns out, more sleep is worse than less sleep if you want to live past 65.

But who wants to live that long anyway? right?

Mark Zuckerberg: Is he REALLY evil?

with one comment

The most powerful man in the internet isn’t Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. It’s the guy who controls our social interaction: Mark Zuckerberg.

Recently the Harvard graduate has caught some flack regarding Facebook’s privacy issues, but Ryan Tate provides an interesting look (with a large part dealing with David Kirkpatrick’s upcoming profile on MZ) at the 20-something year old gazillionaire who allows me to have over 500 friends of whom I talk to 20.

24-year old wins $1M for throwing a perfect game– on MLB 2K10!!!

leave a comment »

Less than 90 minutes after bringing the game home after work, Wade McGilberry threw a perfect game using Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami and scored a cool $1 million dollars courtesy of 2K Sports.

The company had offered the prize to the first person to score a perfect game. It was supposed to be a difficult feat, but McGilberry accomplished it within 24 hours of the game’s release.

A million dollars. I’m pretty sure a series of ‘WTH’s’ are in order.
