Ballooning Nazi Zombies Trailer


Hapless writes:

I was at a film fest and this preview comes on and it looked amazing. I guess these guys are having a hard time getting the funds to complete the movie, and it is sad to me that the internet can build buzz (as much as I am part of it) for Snakes on a (Got-Damn) Plane, and this film may never see the light of day. And it is Ballooning Nazi Zombies. Do you NEED anything else?

The link to the trailer is here (direct to .mov) and it does look exceedingly stylish.

Medical Experiments of the Holocaust and Nazi Medicine

From Wikipedia and

Auschwitz concentration camp, Dr. Josef Mengele carried out medical experiments of this kind. These included placing subjects in pressure chambers, testing various drugs on them, freezing them to death, and various other usually fatal traumas. Of particular interest to Mengele were twins, gypsies, dwarves, and infants; beginning in 1943, twins were selected and placed in special barracks.

Almost all of Mengele’s experiments were of dubious scientific value, including attempts to change eye color by injecting chemicals into children’s eyes, various amputations and other brutal surgeries, and in at least one case attempting to create artificial conjoined twins by sewing the veins in two twins together; this operation was not successful and only caused the hands of the children to become badly infected.

Buy a Lost in Space Robot


A steal at $24,500.00.

Irwin Allen’s hit TV series, “Lost in Space”, had captured the imagination of future “space colonists” across America. Every boy dreamed of being William Robinson… and why not? Never before had “Space” been so cool.

It is now 40 years later and we still dream of having our very own Robot!

It is with this same enthusiasm that B9Creations is excited to announce our production and sale of Full Size, Limited Edition, Fully Licensed Replicas of this amazing TV Icon!

Improv Everywhere’s Best Buy Mission


The idea for this mission was submitted by a stranger via email. Agent Slavinsky wrote in to suggest I get either a large group of people in blue polo shirts and khakis to enter a Best Buy or a group in red polo shirts and khakis to enter a Target. Wearing clothing almost identical to the store’s uniform, the agents would not claim to work at the store but would be friendly and helpful if anyone had a question. There aren’t any Targets in Manhattan, so I decided to go with the two-story Best Buy on 23rd Street.

The Saddest Thing I Own


A blog where people upload a picture and story of their possessions that brings out feelings of sorrow.

There are some things that we own that are just so sad. You know what we mean. Sad. It seems likely that these sad things illuminate our vulnerable places, one way or another.

The Saddest Thing I Own invites people everywhere to share the saddest thing they own. What are these sad things? What makes things sad? Do things start off sad? Do some sad things begin as happy things that then become sad? Are some things only sad because for some sad reason we kept them? Are some things just plain sad no matter what? This is what we want to know.

Daily Dose of Ingersoll


The ancient Hebrews believed that this earth was the center of the universe, and that the sun, moon and stars were specks in the sky.

With this the Bible agrees.

They thought the earth was flat, with four corners; that the sky, the firmament, was solid — the floor of Jehovah’s house.

The Bible teaches the same.

They imagined that the sun journeyed about the earth, and that by stopping the sun the day could be lengthened.

The Bible agrees with this.

They believed that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman; that they had been created but a few years before, and that they, the Hebrews, were their direct descendants.

This the Bible teaches.

If anything is, or can be, certain, the writers of the Bible were mistaken about creation, astronomy, geology; about the causes of phenomena, the origin of evil and the cause of death.

Now, it must be admitted that if an infinite Being is the author of the Bible, he knew all sciences, all facts, and could not have made a mistake.

If, then, there are mistakes, misconceptions, false theories, ignorant myths and blunders in the Bible, it must have been written by finite beings; that is to say, by ignorant and mistaken men.

–Robert Green Ingersoll, “About the Holy Bible” (1894)
