  9. You guys all know about the Nobel awards, right? And if i tell ya about Ig Nobel, you'd think i am joking... But... The Ig Nobel Prizes is a parody of the Nobel Prizes and is given out in early October each year for ten unusual or trivial achievements in scientific research. These research do exist! The stated aim of the prizes is to "honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think". The awards are sometimes veiled criticism (or gentle satire), but are also used to point out that even the most absurd-sounding avenues of research can yield useful knowledge. Organized by the scientific humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research (AIR), they are presented by a group that includes Nobel laureates at a ceremony at Harvard University's Sanders Theater, and they are followed by a set of public lectures by the winners at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The name is a play on the words ignoble ("characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness") and the Nobel Prize. The pronunciation used during the ceremony is /ˌɪɡnoʊˈbɛl/ ig-noh-bel, not like the word "ignoble". Bellow, the awards from 2013 till 2015: _______________________________ The 2015 Ig Nobel Prize Winners: The 2015 Ig Nobel Prizes were awarded on Thursday night, September 17th, 2015 at the 25th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony, at Harvard's Sanders Theatre.

    Cheating cat

    Heya buddies, Here's the come back of cats fight! This video is in : original version with english subtitles (which means, you here the kittens making: "meow" sounds, with their translations in english) Enjoy edit: it was the lady kitten who has been cheating on, that's why i corrected the title of this topic
  11. There you go, it's all about the kittens. Thanks to Eazy for leading us the way of heckenoff!
  12. Tropic Thunder is a 2008 American satirical action comedy film co-written, produced, directed by, and co-starring Ben Stiller. The film also co-stars Robert Downey, Jr. and Jack Black. The main plot revolves around a group of prima donna actors who are making a fictional Vietnam War film. When their frustrated director decides to drop them in the middle of a jungle, they are forced to rely on their acting skills in order to survive the real action and danger. Written by Stiller, Justin Theroux and Etan Cohen, the film was produced by Red Hour Films and distributed by Paramount Pictures through DreamWorks Pictures. Stiller's idea for the film originated while playing a minor role in Empire of the Sun, and he later enlisted Theroux and Cohen to help complete the script. After the film was green-lit in 2006, filming took place in 2007 on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i over thirteen weeks and was later deemed the largest film production in the island's history. The film had an extensive marketing promotion, including faux websites for the three main characters and their fictional films, airing a fictional television special, and selling the energy drink advertised in the film, "Booty Sweat". The film received generally positive reviews, with critics praising the film's characters, story, faux trailers, and the performances of Stiller, Downey, and Tom Cruise. The film's soundtrack and score debuted on August 5, 2008, before the film's theatrical release. In its North American opening weekend, the film earned US$26 million and retained the number one position for the first three weekends of release. Downey received Academy Award, BAFTA Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for his performance, with both him and Cruise receiving nominations for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture. The film grossed more than $188 million worldwide before its release on home video on November 18, 2008. Cast Ben Stiller as Tugg Speedman: Once the highest-paid, highest-grossing action film star ever due to his Scorcher franchise, his career has stalled, and he now has a reputation for appearing in nothing but box office bombs. After a failed attempt at portraying a serious role in Simple Jack, in which he plays a mentally-challenged farmer boy, he takes the role of Four Leaf Tayback in an attempt to save his career. The first faux trailer at the film's start is a preview for Scorcher VI: Global Meltdown, the latest in his series. Jack Black as Jeff Portnoy: A drug-addicted comedian-actor well known for portraying multiple parts in films that rely on toilet humor, particularly jokes about flatulence. In the film-within-a-film, he plays a raspy-voiced soldier named Fats. Portnoy's faux trailer for The Fatties: Fart 2, about a family (with each member played by Portnoy) which enjoys passing gas, spoofs Eddie Murphy's portrayal of multiple characters in films such as Nutty Professor II: The Klumps. Robert Downey, Jr. as Kirk Lazarus: An immensely talented Australian method actor, Lazarus had a controversial "pigmentation alteration" surgery to darken his skin for his portrayal of the black character Staff Sergeant Lincoln Osiris. Lazarus refuses to break character until he has recorded the DVD commentary for a part and only speaks in his character's African American Vernacular English. Lazarus's faux trailer, Satan's Alley, is about two gay monks in a 12th-century Irish monastery, parodying art house films like Brokeback Mountain and Downey's own scenes with Tobey Maguire (who in a cameo portrays the other monk) in Wonder Boys. Steve Coogan as Damien Cockburn: The inexperienced British film director who is unable to control the actors in the film. Jay Baruchel as Kevin Sandusky: A respectful novice actor, he is the only cast member to have read the script and book and attended the assigned boot camp prior to the film. Sandusky plays a young soldier named Brooklyn in the film-within-a-film. Brooklyn and Sandusky each occupy the position of straight man in character in the film-within-a-film and its cast, being the only actor without an internal conflict or deep-seated insecurity. Danny McBride as Cody Underwood: The film's explosives expert and helicopter pilot. He is a pyromaniac. Brandon T. Jackson as Alpa Chino: A closeted homosexual rapper who is attempting to cross over into acting, portraying a soldier named Motown, while promoting his "Bust-A-Nut" candy bar and energy drink, "Booty Sweat". His name is a play on Al Pacino. Before the faux trailers, a faux commercial for "Booty Sweat" and "Bust-A-Nut" appears, accompanied by the song "I Love Tha Pussy" and the slogan "Pop An Ass Open!". Bill Hader as Rob Slolom: Grossman's assistant and right-hand man. Nick Nolte as Sergeant John "Four Leaf" Tayback: The author of Tropic Thunder, a fake memoir of his war experiences on which the film-within-a-film is based. He suggests the idea of dropping the actors in the middle of the jungle to get them looking and feeling like soldiers lost in a foreign land. Matthew McConaughey as Rick "Pecker" Peck: Speedman's extremely devoted agent and best friend. Brandon Soo Hoo as Tran: The 12-year-old young leader of the Flaming Dragon gang. The character was compared to Karen National Union guerrilla leaders Johnny and Luther Htoo. Reggie Lee as Byong: The second-in-command of the Flaming Dragon gang. Tom Cruise as Les Grossman: The profane, ill-tempered studio executive producing Tropic Thunder. Various actors and celebrities portray themselves, including Tobey Maguire, Tyra Banks, Maria Menounos, Martin Lawrence, The Mooney Suzuki, Jason Bateman, Lance Bass, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alicia Silverstone, and Jon Voight. Christine Taylor (Stiller's wife), Mini Anden, Anthony Ruivivar, Rachel Avery, and Yvette Nicole Brown have roles as minor characters in the film. Co-writer Justin Theroux appears in two brief roles as a UH-1 Huey gunner and the disc jockey from Zoolander (shown in a deleted scene).

  17. Since I've gotten my dSLR, I've been absolutely dying to get out for a day-long landscape photo shoot. Of course, it also takes time to get used to a new piece of glass- and especially a different sized sensor. But of course, with new glass comes the problem of new filters. If the inner diameter of the lens is equal or lower to some filters you've got-- you're good to go once you've gotten a step-down ring. But say you have 58mm filters, and your new lens is 72mm... well that's too much to step-up without severe and uncorrectable vignetting. So I've taken my time, and gotten some practice with this new camera... so that hopefully when I do get out on that shoot (which will hopefully be sometime this week or next), I'll stand a chance of getting some proper shots with good composition. But if I could control my photographic urges, it would just make me too good of a person; so instead, I headed to YouTube. I discovered these guys about a month or two ago, and have kinda taken onto them- so I figured I'd share the love with all. And here is 5 Tips for Great Landscapes: (This video applies to photography in general- whether you use an iPhone, polaroid, Lomography, dSLR... you name it)
  18. haha another about fake languages xD
  19. Hello all, This is a topic about petnames, as the tittle says. It my be about your own pet (mine has a very cool name which I am not allowed to post) or about other pets you know off. Since I started thsi topic, I might as well go first: In a little, very christian, town in The Netherlands called Kampen there was a guy who owned two dogs.... The first one he named Goddamnit and the second one Pussy. Allways funny and corny when he had to call those dogs.
  20. Howdy! My friend has fallen in love. He says that's it's love of his life So he got an idea to make his gf a great no-occasion gift. He want to get photos of ppl living all around the world in front of flag/monument carrying a banner which says: "Peter's love for Anita is bigger than the world". I think this idea is so cute that it gives cancer to unicorns and I decided to help him. And now I'm asking YOU for help! Sent me your photos on photosofpeterslove@mail.com adress. Here you have original ad from deviantart: "Hi! I would like to ask you for your help in one, little thing! I want to prepare some nice surprise for my girlfriend. I call it "Love bigger than world" (nice name, isn't it? ). What is my role in this, you ask? Great question! I need photo. Photo of you holding a piece of paper (or only paper with monument/flag, without you, if you don't like taking photo of yourself ) with the inscription: "Peter's love for Anita is bigger than world". It would be great if this picture was visible a famous monument, or the flag of your country! Can you help me? If you can, text me and I will give you my email adress so you could send a picture! And, if you want, you can tell about it to your friends, the more pictures the better Greetings!" I look forward etc. Ceppelin da Boss P.S Don't mention mistakes pls. I know they are everywhere
  21. Yo. Sup. I had a tube jammed down my throat today to check my upper GI. First timer so it was an experience and a half. I'm still a lil' woozy making this post, but I thought I would share my general dumbasery with a video. That's right. I got some shit on vid. Hah. Couple pics to start: 7AM - I forgot what this time of the morning looks like. Hint: Sucky. Then they stuck me with an IV. The first time I heard 'Uh oh.' Hah. I got sweaty and pale after this. Me and needles are no bueno. Me waking up after the procedure lol. I had no idea wtf was going on. I did hear a nurse tell me 3 times to put my phone away. Don't quite remember much of this. And finally a cut up video of my stupidity while under the influence of the sedative. Maybe NSFW as I use a lot of language.
