Geek
LINK ♥ every Minnesotan needs a reminder to put together a winter car emergency kit – LifeHacker provides a checklist..

LINK ♥ Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network warns us against ‘demonic’ Halloween candy.. saying, “most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches” hmm.. really!?!

LINK ♥ shortly after 62 year old MN man pimped out his la-z-boy, he drove it down to the local bar, downed “8 or 9 beers” and got a DWI on the way home (oh man I would have loved to have been in that cruiser).. now the cops have put the la-z-boy (complete with 8-horsepower lawnmower engine, stereo, headlights, cup holder and a “Hell yeah it’s fast” sticker on the back) on ebay..

LINK ♥ yeah Keanu Reeves is hot.. but is he immortal? some guy made a video which concludes that “it’s only logical to conclude that (he) is either a vampire or immortal“.. well of course it is.
