Here’s some stuff culled from the Internets over the past few weeks:
- First, via mental_floss, YouTube’s new Game Show sensation, “Truth or Fail.” I love trivia podcasts, radio shows like “Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me” and whatnot, so I love this (www.youtube.com/truthorfail).
More fun after the jump!
- In our “Betty White Is Awesome/for SNL/for President” beat, she’s this close to hosting Saturday Night Live (http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/2010/02/22/2010-02-22_betty_white_close_to_hosting_saturday_night_live_after_facebook_campaign__report.html).
- Next, directly from mental_floss, a game in which you get to form the solar system (http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/my-solar-system/my-solar-system_en.html), a history of ketchup (or catsup?) (http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/48268#more-48268), and the long-lost second verses to children’s songs (http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/48537).
- Also on mental_floss, starting March 1st, they’re going to be publishing a Mon-Thu e-newsletter, Good News Daily (www.mentalfloss/goodnews).
- On TedQuarters, Ted Berg discusses Oliver Perez’s mustache (http://www.tedquarters.net/2010/02/26/previous-evidence-of-the-olliestache/) and compares the Mets to the White Stripes (http://www.tedquarters.net/2010/02/25/a-seven-nation-army/).
- On BoingBoing, Maggie Koerth-Baker discusses the correlation between brain size and intelligence (http://www.boingboing.net/2010/02/26/the-brain-and-intell.html#more) and the blog presents defaced dollar bills (http://www.boingboing.net/2010/02/25/cash-graffiti.html).
- On Gizmodo, John Herrman discusses the bromance between Nikola Tesla and Mark Twain (http://gizmodo.com/5480558/and-tesla-the-twain-shall-meet).
- Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Auto-Tune the News 10.
Join me next week as I go through the Internets for the Friday Link Slurry, and tomorrow for the Saturday Night Stuff I Like, when I discuss Animaniacs.
