Get Your Sing on In Myspace

Myspace Karaoke

If you like to go to bars and sing you ass off in front of a bunch of people, good for you. If you’re one of those people who are too shy or embarassed (me) to do something like that, check out Myspace. Myspace Karaoke just launched today, after two years of rebranding the service from kSolo. I guess Myspace is pretty busy if it took them that long to get it together, but either way, it’s here now. So now you can karaoke in front of your computer. You don’t have to sing in front of anyone, but millions of people will hear you now. I still don’t want to do it, but I like to watch or listen to other people doing it.

The playground of your nightmares… muahahaha

Creepy Sculpture

When you think back to your childhood playing on teetering seesaws and the expeditious merry-go-rounds, is it a dark and gloomy place? Well, if you grew up in Russia, China, or certain European countries, playgrounds did mean a night of terrors- for both kids and parents.

We’ve all questioned the safety of today’s playgrounds; the witch’s hair, jungle gyms, and who thought it would be a good idea to have a bunch of kids play on an object that can be pushed to top speeds without any safety restraints? These contraptions, all though fun for the simple minded, can be a nightmare amongst mothers. But these are the least of your worries.

Horrendous sculptures and accident prone play things are scattered in foreign countries as well as here in the US of A. If you thought the spring riders were a little freaky, take a look at these.

Lose Something in the Trash? Disney Will Help

Wedding Ring

A couple, Paul and Karen, were vacationing at Walt Disney World and somehow, Paul accidentally threw out their engagement, wedding, and five-year anniversary rings. Geez! Anyway, they asked the staff if it was possible at all to find them, and the answer they recieved was not a good one.

But! Once the couple left, the staff had realized that the trash hadn’t been compacted yet, so Drew Weaver of the Wilderness Lodge resort and seven other volunteers dug through many, many bags of trash until they found the rings. Wow! That’s what I call service. I bet Paul and and Karen are hugely grateful.

Forget the Show Cheaters. There’s an Easier Way

If you suspect that your wife or girlfriend may be cheating on you, it’s actually pretty easy to catch them. You don’t have to hire a detective or anything. All you need is a semen detection kit. All you do is put a few drops of the secret formula #1 on her panties, blot the area with a little pad thingy, and put secret formula #2 on the pad. If it turns purple… Congratulations! It’s time to start dating again.
