Like Pepsi? Hate fat? Well for 150Yen (and a trip to Japan) you can pick up Pepsi that promises to block fat AND “lower bad cholesterol.” Yeah, we can’t make that stuff up. The Daily Mail reports that tomorrow Pepsi will launch it’s newest Pepsi product, Pepsi Special. Pepsi Special does it’s voodoo by including the food additive Dextrin to it’s “special” formula. Studies on dextrin … Continue reading Oh Japan: Fat-blocking Pepsi headed to Japan
Let’s be honest, the US auto market is typically the bigger the better but every now and again there comes a compact car that at least makes us consider what it would be like trading a V6 to something a bit smaller. The recently announced Fiat 500 Turbo may very well be one of those cars. The Turbo, part of Fiat’s Cinquecento lineup, sounds like … Continue reading Fiat powers up, announces 2013 Fiat 500 Turbo

Suffice to say that the world at large is paying a lot more attention to Twitter these days. From keeping up with famous people to breaking news, Twitter has become the defacto source for quick news-ish updates. This being an election year in the US means that we must find a way to turn our beloved time-killer into a prophetic source of calling an election … Continue reading Twitter is our new opinion poll
After a very long hiatus (did you miss me?) This Week In ‘Fuck You’ has returned. Continue reading TWIFY: Rockstar Games – “Social Club”
If you listened to last week’s episode of the podcast (and if you haven’t shame on you), you’ll recall our WTF story about the lifeguard that was fired for saving someone from drowning. Thomas Lopez was a lifeguard in Hallandale Beach, Florida that was terminated after he rescued a beachgoer outside of his designated zone. Well, we have a small follow-up story to that BS. … Continue reading Lego offers job to terminated lifeguard
After a very public and embarrassing – for FunnyJunk and their lawyer Charles Carreon at least – legal dispute, The Oatmeal (nee Matthew Inman) not only made good on his promise to raise $20K for a cancer charity and a wildlife charity, and send a photo of it; he exceeded his original goal ten-fold! Even better for you and I, he’s uploaded pictures reminding us … Continue reading Sweet Victory for The Oatmeal
Computers run hot. The more computing power they’re capable of, the hotter they get. Combined with very little space to push that heat out and things can get too hot to handle. Given that bit of common sense, it’s no surprise that Apple’s latest work stallion can get quite hot. According to a French-language site (via Macgasm), the picture at left was taken using a thermal imaging … Continue reading Retina MacBook Pro too hot for your lap
In late March, Nintendo released Kid Icarus for the 3DS – a full 25 years after it initially hit the NES console. The latest offering gave gamers a chance of saving the world from the evil goddess Medusa and her un-dead minions; it was nostalgic enough to bring us old-school gamers back but built to introduce an new generation to Pit. One of the most … Continue reading Kid Icarus Multiplayer Battle Day is coming

With the recent news that a certain Michael Bay will be putting his own stamp on Turtle lore, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the most recent movie. Back in 2007, there came a new movie in the Turtle franchise, following 1993’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II (They go back in time; it wasn’t pretty). The catch here is that … Continue reading Turtle Power!
