World’s longest limos

October 29th, 2008 · Comments Off · automotive, bizarre, odd

Some of the stretchiest stretch limos ever to attempt a u-turn will make you pause, scratch your head and wonder what these people were thinking of. You could take the entire senior class and their dates to the prom or all the first and second graders from Schmitt Elementary School to the petting zoo (what […]

Robot beertender

October 29th, 2008 · Comments Off · beer, clever, humor, tech

Once you see one robot pour beer you’ve seen them all. Right? Nuh uh. This guy’s a bit different. He has attitude. He wears a tie. He’s not like all those other snooty high-tech bots. He’s his own man, um, robot.     (Neatorama)

Internet companies’ name origins

October 29th, 2008 · Comments Off · history, Internet, words

This has nothing to do with Star Trek… I just like the logo. Some other logos, like the one at left, have endured through the ups and downs of the Internet phenomenon. But where in the world did the likes of Google and Yahoo get such goofy names? The answer lies right here where those […]

Keg bot

October 28th, 2008 · Comments Off · beer, clever

Heineken has an interesting concept for packaging their beer. They’ve stuck it in a mini-keg that fits in the fridge without getting in the way of the burritos and baloney sandwiches and pound cake. Although this may be another example of “lousy beer; great commercials,” it’s still fun to watch. Nice CGI (computer generated imagery) […]

Spike.com has posted their top ten favorite babe aliens from TV and movies. The best run the gamut from Start Trek, Star Wars, Total Recall and more. Take a gander at the female species of other races and choose your fave. My vote goes to T’Pol from Enterprise. It’s most logical.

Antec’s Skeleton revisited

October 28th, 2008 · Comments Off · clever, PC, tech

We talked about this unique skeleton case for your PC here, and we’re back looking at it again, this time with a little clearer set of eyeballs. We’ve found a pictorial, a kind of how-to which, for the most part, demonstrates how the integral parts work and fit together. If you’ve ever considered building your […]

Rip Saw

October 28th, 2008 · Comments Off · amazing, automotive, clever

Here’s an oldie but definitely one of my favorites. It’s not about another chain saw with a hemi or a nuclear reactor. It’s about about an all terrain dual-tracked vehicle powered by a monster V8 with straight pipe headers. This so sweet. The beast is built by Howe and Howe Technologies and this quote from […]

The head what ain’t got no body

October 28th, 2008 · Comments Off · bizarre, humor, stupid

A little shocker leading up to the big night on Friday. One (or both) of the entities in this video doesn’t (don’t) have a friend in the world. Pity.       (Bits&Pieces)

October 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment · humor

Although the cop does most of the talking in this video, the driver sits and steams. Wait until the end when the driver “gets even.”

The guy in the background just can’t help himself. He’s gotta do it. He ultimately turns a news video snippet into a foot race.

Yep. Halloween is at the end of this week. Maybe you’ll get off a little early this Friday to go trick-or-treating or participate in the company Halloween party. But you must have a proper costume form a store or rental place, or you could build your own. Have a look at what are goofiest costumes […]

AC/DC in MS Excel

October 27th, 2008 · Comments Off · amazing, clever, entertainment, PC, tech

Someone has put together a rather epic representation of a rock video using Microsoft’s Excel spreadsheet program. I can’t imagine the amount of time that was spent on this project, but it’s pretty clever how one’s eyes instantly get accustomed to animation. I wonder if this was done on company time. (Neatorama)

October 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Frankly speaking, opinion

I’ve made a few changes around the friendly realm of SixPackTech. They’re are mostly additions to make navigation a little easier. You probably won’t even see ‘em at first glance, but they’re there. First off, I’ve added a few more categories. Since we have these weekly running features such as an automotive Monday, Humpday Honey […]
