Weekly Update.

– Boxing: July 2nd starts a string of “fights you should try to watch”, starting with Klitschko/Haye (heavyweights), followed by Paul Williams/Erislandy Lara (junior middleweights) on the 9th, and finally Judah/Khan (junior welterweights) on the 23rd. That Klitschko fight is the only heavyweight fight that’s mattered since Lewis/Tyson. (I just slashed the shit out of you.)

– Naked in Nature: The World’s Best Ever has 30 pictures from Playboy for you, but here’s a taste:  (The World’s Best Ever)

– Speaking of tits: The Big Book of Breasts is now in 3-D.  (Coyote Blog)

– That cool, refreshing drink: Kids near the U.S. Open last weekend tried to open a lemonade stand. The county tried to fine them $500 for violating the vendor laws. The county dropped the fine and made the kids move to a side street. Because government is caring.  (Carpe Diem)

– Tattoos and suicide: If you are getting a tattoo, don’t get one that references Ned Kelly. You’re more likely to die from suicide or homicide than the average person.  (Discovery)

– Who the fuck is Ned Kelly? Depending on who you ask, he’s either just an Australian outlaw from the late 1800s or a symbol for the fight against British rule in Australia. He also made his own set of armor before taking on some cops.  Anyway, don’t get his tattoo unless you want to die young.  (Wiki)

 – “Don’t forget to pee the plants”: No, my mom has never left me that note. Hopefully she will, one day. This is merely a concept, but one can wish:  (Gizmodo)

– I need to watch more reality TV: Her name is Diana Balsini and she was a contestant (guest?) on Big Brother Brazil. I’m in love, even if that love is covered in Photoshop (seriously, compare this picture to the one above):  (Fuck Yeah Brazilian Girls)

– Tape art: Pictures created with electrical tape:  (Core77)

– Refs suck: And apparently have for over 1,800 years. Turns out an epitaph for a gladiator in Roman times blames the fighter’s loss (and subsequent death) on a poor ruling by the referee. The gladiator thought he had won the battle when he knocked his opponent to the ground and the opponent asked for mercy. Instead the ref ruled it an inadvertent slip and told them to keep fighting.  (Discovery)

– Plastic money: Oh, Canada. Instead of paper-cotton money, they are rolling out polymer bills come the fall, starting with $100, or whatever money sign they use up dere.  (Geekologie)

– Data: This is data, or so they claim:  (Core77)

– Mind, blown: Astronomers found a protostar that is (I guess was, since it’s 750 light years away) spewing jets of water into space. This could mean that our Sun went through the same process during its formation… which could mean our water isn’t from this planet. And, since water breeds life, that there is a lot more water and a lot more life out there than originally thought.  (PopSci)

– Space pic: Since it’s been awhile (bigger version here). It’s two galaxies crashing into each other, if you couldn’t tell:  (PopSci)

– Shit burger: Ugh. But yeah. So a scientist in Japan (of course) has found a way to extract protein from “sewage mud” to make meat. The video is worth watching since he actually labels the meat in his plastic bag as “shit burger” and then uses a creepy finger pointer at the end:  (Kornfeld)

– Texas in this motherfucka’: You’ll still be able to manufacture and sell 100-watt lightbulbs, assuming you do both in Texas, no matter what the federal government says. Pretty badass of Texas, but should I expect anything less?  (Carpe Diem)

– Smoke ’em if you got ’em: Enjoy your cigarettes with these new pictures on them:  (MarketWatch)

– Dust: Harter had asked me to put something about dust in an update, however I think I’m like 4 weeks late from when he originally asked. For the most part, it seems like your common house dust is made up of dust mites and dust mites’ shit. At least according to Wiki:

[House dust mites] excrete enzymes to digest the organic particles, and excrete feces, that together become part of the house dust, and may irritate allergies

The rest of the dust around us basically comes from any loose soil that wind travels over. The Sahara, for one, is dusting this shit out of shit. Even housing developments create dust, either when cutting wood like a lumberjack or moving earth for the foundation (just to get a base). Hair (human and animal), plant pollen, minerals, skin, and a bunch of other nasty shit make up dust.

– One more time: Ending with a picture of disgusting lungs and a piece about how you breath in the shit of dust mites every second, I figured we’d show my new wife one more time:  (Fuck Yeah Brazilian Girls)
