The Brilliance That Is Hoverboy - The Racist Superhero

A hero to save us from those damn immigrant birds.
Taking jobs away from our local birds they are.
Okay, it's time to come clean. Hoverboy is actual a brilliantly conceived, designed and beautifully illustrated spoof. Cleverly embedded into comic book history. The work of Canadian comic book artist Ty Templeton and Canadian TV personality Rick Green. So wonderfully elaborate in its depth and scope, that it has fooled a lot of people. The supposed single episode of the Hoverboy animation series from the 1950s, is all over the Weird Wide Web, with many people believing it to be from the period. Rather than a computer generated animation, given a vintage animation feel. Produced not in 1956, but in 2000, and funded by the National Film Board of Canada. It was written and directed by Marcus Moore, and produced by Brad Abraham. 

If I Had A Week I Couldn't Explain To You All The Reasons Why This Guy Is An Idiot


If I had a week I couldn't tell you all the reasons why this guy is an idiot. Of course every single piece of rocket science research will be disproven by this muppet and his Wiley Coyote rocket. When you don't understand the science behind your stunt then maybe you best not attempt it in the first place.

Seeking to prove that a conspiracy of astronauts fabricated the shape of the Earth, a California man intends to launch himself 1,800 feet high on Saturday in a rocket he built from scrap metal.
Assuming the 500-mph, mile-long flight through the Mojave Desert does not kill him, Mike Hughes told the Associated Press, his journey into the atmosflat will mark the first phase of his ambitious flat-Earth space program.

Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above the Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof of the disc we all live on.

“It’ll shut the door on this ball earth,” Hughes said in a fundraising interview with a flat-Earth group for Saturday’s flight. Theories discussed during the interview included NASA being controlled by round-Earth Freemasons and Elon Musk making fake rockets from blimps.

Hughes promised the flat-Earth community that he would expose the conspiracy with his steam-powered rocket, which will launch from a heavily modified mobile home — though he acknowledged that he still had much to learn about rocket science.

“This whole tech thing,” he said in the June interview. “I’m really behind the eight ball.”

I Love The Idea Of The Yule Cat

Finally to Iceland, and their folklore traditions of the Yule Lads and the Yule Cat. The Yule Lads are said to be the sons of the giantess of the Icelandic mountains called Grýla, who as Christmas approaches leaves her cave in the lava fields of Dimmuborgir in search of naughty children. The Yule Cat is her pet, a huge and vicious monster of a thing. The cat will eat anyone that has not been given new clothes to wear before Christmas Eve. It thought that the cat was used an incentive for farm workers to work hard to earn new clothes or be eaten by the Yule Cat.

General Mills Atomic Bomb Ring

Fifteen cents and a box top and you too can glow radioactively.
Given away free with Kix cereal, the Atomic Bomb Ring contained actual degrading radioactive material. The instructions stated that "you'll see brilliant flashes of light in the inky darkness inside the atom chamber." Suggesting that to see the miracle of the atoms of polonium-alpha particles on a zinc sulphide screen, you took yourself off to a darkened room and put the atomic bomb ring to your eye. So that you could see the "frenzied flashes." inside the chamber.
Claiming that the Atomic Bomb Ring was PEEFECTLY SAFE, and that kids could wear the ring with "complete safety" may have been a bit of a naieve statement from the manufacturers. Polonium-210, is a deadly element and its alpha particle emissions have a short have life of 138 days. However the silvery metal, found in uranium ore, and originally discovered by Marie and Pierre Curie in 1897 is deadly. It was used to assassinate the former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in London, in 2006. A microgram of Po-210, which is no larger than a speck of dust, would certainly deliver a fatal dose of radiation. So for kids, who like to put things in their mouths, maybe this ring wasn't such a great idea.
