Sunday Burst of Weird and AWESOME!

Oddities and awesome abound!

:: Wikipedia has an article on chicken hypnotism. Seriously. Make sure you scroll down to the list of famous people who have publicly discussed their preferred methods of hypnotizing chickens.

:: On the day that Albert Einstein died, a LIFE Magazine photographer took a bunch of pictures from Einstein’s office and at the funeral. The photographs were never published, until now. Einstein’s desk is particularly poignant to me — the desk is covered in papers and there’s still stuff scrawled all over his blackboard, but the uppermost bookshelves are already empty. The scene suggests a guy trying to get some work done before the end, and he didn’t quite make it.

:: For some reason I almost never read The Onion — no real idea why, other than that I’ve never formed the habit of checking it out — but this headline, cited by a Facebook friend this morning, cracked me up. I know it’s almost ten years old, but it’s new to me.

:: is always a source of hilarity for me; I tend to go there once every couple of weeks so I can read a lot of new content in one shot. I particularly enjoyed 6 baffling things every teevee ad assumes to be true, and the 10 greatest fictional sports.

More next week!

    Those Einstein pics are so touching and sad but so interesting at the same time.

    I love both the Onion and Cracked, so hilarious! Have you seen the Onion video from their 'International Desk' about China's Andy Rooney? I posted it a while back and it makes me crack up every time.
