Guess the name of the company who is going to manufacture the suit.  Come on, guess.

Did you guess it?  Here's a hint, someday they will build a robot that looks an awful lot like the governor of California, and it will take over the world.

Yeah I noticed that too, my godson's dad sent me some links to it including that vid.

It's like how the MOD is thinking of naming their satellite defense grid Skynet (they really are)

I wonder if that's an actual reference, or just a coincidence.  As nerds get older and gain more power, I can only imagine that it would become more common for companies and products to have nerdy references.

So I have the exact same odds for bowling a perfect game as I do for winning an Oscar?  If you're gonna do one, get the Oscar.  It would look better on your shelf than a bowling trophy would.  Wait... you don't get ANYTHING for bowling a 300 game!  Go for the gold, man!

This is a video from the youtube channel "MyDamnChannel", which is chock full of great stuff.  Here's one that I found especially hilarious, and the funniest thing Dane Cook has ever done (which isn't saying much, I know, but check it out):

If THAT is the high-water mark for Dane Cook, then that's just sad.  I feel sorry for his family....and the audience...and his agent.
