Honestly, I think this commercial is hilarious. Why is it that most of the world can enjoy dark humor and amusement and the like, but we as Americans can't even begin to think of putting anything "offensive" on television without thinking of all the consequences. I have a lot of thought on this one but not a whole lot of say, mainly because I can't set any boundary on what is and is not offensive. I'm sorry, but I'm not an authoritative guide lol. What do you think? What is and is not offensive? What should and shouldn't be allowed?

You've all seen one of these before right? Ofcoarse you have, it's called a "CAPTCHA". That acronym stands for "Completely Automatic Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart". Now you're probably wondering what the heck is a Turin test, if not then good for you. I just learned about this recently and now I have to add Alan Turin to my list of heroes. Check him out, google him, Wikipedia him, and I bet you'll think of Alan Turin the next time you fill out a CAPTCHA......sometimes I get geeked over the coolest things!....cool to me anyways lol.

We don't know much about the Boobla Scoobla yet. What we do know is that there are few in the world, they learned to survive by disguising themselves as humans, they eat mammals (humans are especially delicious), and that they are afraid of being under tables.
This research was done by Professor Modern M. Carpentry. It took him about 4 days to come up with all that he knows about the the Boob's existence. He would have kept researching if it wasn't for him running out of funds.
Now he works at a restaurant as a dish washer. He figured that it wouldn't hurt to get a little money before continuing his expedition, but now he sees his future at Dookie's Fine Dining lasting for a while. He suspects that he actually works with a Scoob who calls herself Barbara Scarbara. That his where Mod's story begins in his pursuit to prove that Barbara Scarbara is in fact a Boobla Scoobla!

" What are the consequences when humans start playing with life? The human imagination has always dreamed up fantastic creatures, but now biotechnology is making it easier and easier for us to actually create forms of life that have never existed before. In this episode Radio Lab looks at the uneasy marriage between biology and engineering, and asks what counts as “natural?” "

Hi, my name is Darius but you can call me catphish or phish for short. You may not know what to expect from this blog because I don't know what to expect from this blog either. I do know this however, that I will be making a weekly comic about the infamous Boobla Scoobla every Sunday morning at noon. Also, as soon as I get the feel for how I want my blog setup, I hope to have daily updated news discussion (some with original comics as well). Also, maybe even a skateboard trick tip blog with step by step instructions will be included later on. Your feedback is greatly appreciated, it's going to let me know what I'm doing right, what I'm doing wrong, what I should get rid of, and what I should add, etc. It's probably going to start of a bit rocky since this is my first blog ever, but hopefully I can produce something you all can enjoy, thankyou.
