We reported on the interesting viral marketing tactics to help promote the yet to be realized cult classic- but the movie just didn’t translate into money. I guess they’re banking on pirating/hearsay and other subliminal money spending.
rejoice beware!AA Somebody is putting trippies in choco bars in Amsterdam and discarding them in trash cans near the airport!
THE HAGUE (AFP) - Police at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport has released a warning for hallucinogenic dark chocolate bars after a homeless man ate one and confused their uniforms with wedding dresses.
"He ate some and we found him hallucinating", mixing up police uniforms with wedding dresses, police spokesman Rob Stenacker told AFP on Thursday.
Police later found more chocolate bars on the ground and in airport dustbins.
"They were very likely bought in the Netherlands and abandoned at the airport by travellers who didn’t dare to take them on board (the plane)," Stenacker said.
Police warned the public to be careful if they found any abandoned dark chocolate: "Don’t eat it, you don’t know what’s in it. Imagine what would happen if a child ate it."
Imagine what would happen? He’d trip balls, that’s what.
"Quite simply the analogy would be, you know, you walk to the top of the hill and you walk up, and to the bottom of the hill- but in doing so you have gained energy. It really is that simplistic."
A declaration from Steorn, an Irish company that claims to have created a new law of physics- true conservation of energy. Storming into fragile waters, they have decided to challenge scientists in an ad in the Economist to prove that their technology is faulty.
Whatever works right?

And after all that hubub, the suspected hybrid farm-animal-killer is just a dog.AA Funny thing is, everybody in Turner, MaineAAwas running around talking about how this thing was like the next chupacabras and whatnot.AA Just for the record, I’m mad at the motorist who hit my dog and then tried to act like they were doing society a good deed by killing the mutant beast.AA Here’s an excerpt from the orginal story, which is now inaccesible, being as the info has been updated:
TURNER, Maine - Residents are wondering if an animal found dead over the weekend may be the mysterious creature that has mauled dogs, frightened residents and been the subject of local legend for half a generation.
The animal was found near power lines along Route 4 on Saturday, apparently struck by a car while chasing a cat. The carcass was photographed and inspected by several people who live in the area, but nobody is sure exactly what it is.
Michelle O’Donnell of Turner spotted the animal near her yard about a week before it was killed. She called it a "hybrid mutant of something."
"It was evil, evil looking. And it had a horrible stench I will never forget," she told the Sun Journal of Lewiston. "We locked eyes for a few seconds and then it took off. I’ve lived in Maine my whole life and I’ve never seen anything like it."
[Ed: Just for the record, How did this heffer not know it was a dog?AA Um, the "chasing a cat" part seems to be a dead giveaway. My ninja, please.]
Anybody who has been reading the sports news knows about Maurice Clarett and his trials and tribulations (or maybe you were just reading one of the numerous ludicrous posts about it on thepimpscorner).
Firstly, this dude got bagged up by the po-po’s for rolling around town with some types of firearm, four bangers and a rocket launcher or something, and for being a general idiot about it.AA You might remember this guy as one of the future premiere running backs of the Denver Broncos… until he got fat and got cut.AA Well, it turns out we now know whyAAthe space-cowboy was carrying that gat… it turns out he’s affiliated with the Israeli Mob!
But anyhow, everyone messes up sometimes… and I quote:
Aug. 18, 2006 a€"AAMaurice Clarett was bankrolled by an alleged member of an Israeli crime organization after leaving Ohio State, ESPN has learned, and Clarett’s attorney said Thursday that his client may have been in possession of firearms last week to protect himself against mob activity.
In the late summer of 2004, ESPN has learned, Clarett traveled to Los Angeles and was introduced by a rapper friend to Hai Waknine, 35, a convicted felon who prosecutors believe is a member of an Israeli crime organization called The Jerusalem Group. Waknine, who at the time was being indicted on extortion and money-laundering charges, became Clarett’s sponsor and adviser, along with Waknine’s attorney, David Kenner. Waknine provided Clarett with cash, a BMW, bodyguards, drivers and beachfront lodging in Malibu, with the understanding that he would be reimbursed and receive 60 percent of Clarett’s rookie contract.
After Clarett was arrested last week, allegedly wearing a bulletproof vest and possessing four guns and a hatchet, Clarett’s attorneys received an anonymous phone call alerting them to Clarett’s ties to Waknine. They grew more suspicious when they received the threatening postcard this week.
