Look at Marcus Bachmann's Face in this Video

He was buying doggy sunglasses. Jesus Christ on a cracker that's gay. Also, Gawker is reporting on the giant cold sore he was sporting after sucking too much deeyuck.

nerd alert: art history remakes

 People are recreating paintings in photographs. some are really good. CHECK IT OUT.

that's a lot of food and the internet is for jerks

First of all, I don't care if you say "you can't cook," you should not be ordering 2.6 meals a day delivered to you. That's IN. SANE.

Second of all, I had no idea you could order cookies, where would i get cookies from? That's a good idea. 

Third of all, the internet takes issue with these statistics (of course)

  1. James says:

    There stats on the Pizza are a little off… 800,000 Pizzas at 3 inches per box is 2.4 million inches or 200,000 feet…
    That would make each story 1ft 4in tall…
    And… even if right… I didn’t know the empire state building was 1000 stories tall!?!?! DOH!
  2. John says:

    Aww poor seamless. . .

    They’re good at getting food delivered. . . we don’t pay for them to compile statistics! (thankgod :P)

    Shannon says:
    While there is certainly a typo in the pizzas category (The Empire is NOT 1000 stories tall), it is accurate, at approximately 3″ per pizza box, that it the height would be the same as 150 Empire State Buildings for 800,000 pizzas. Check the height of the Empire State Building and do the math. It DOES add up.

wtf happened.

fix it.

New Yorkers, next time you moan about how long your commute is (i.e., when your leave work today), don't make your complaints aimlessly. Aim them straight at the subway lines that could've taken you home faster if only they'd been built! To do so, Balance Media and WNYC's John Keefe offers this handy map of the 11 proposed-but-never-fully-built subway lines in New York overlaying the city's subway system as it actually exists today. The subways-in-the-sky include a bunch of outer-borough amenities, such as the two additional trains connecting Queens and Brooklyn and another connecting (gasp) Staten Island to the rest of the city. And lower Manhattan certainly gets some love as well, with three more lines of its own going to Brooklyn, including the fabled 2nd Avenue line the MTA has actually started building in the Upper East Side (no jinx). The map's fancy and interactive, with text bubbles explaining each nonexistent line, so you ought to head over to WNYC's website to play with it yourself. (via)
yes i will!! going right now!

there's also an awesome story (with slideshow) about all the ghost stations!

a match made in the bowels of hell

Michele Bachmann has a last-minute TV ad up in Iowa in which she compares herself to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who will play in his first career playoff game this weekend, despite the fact he only completed six passes last week and was unquestionably the worst quarterback over the last month of the regular season. The ad mentions none of that, choosing instead to note that Bachmann and Tebow both have "no baggage" and that "like Tebow, she keeps fighting and she just keeps winning votes." (via
no compromise! no flip-flops!

in the end, it looks like that ad didn't work. i'm predicting the same fate for tim teabag in the NFL caucuses.
