History Ruins Something Else I Like

I was bouncing around the Internet this morning and happened on a video that changed my world.

Someone digging through history has ruined something else I liked.  I didn’t need to know that George Washington had a British accent, or that Lincoln told people in debates two totally different stances on slavery depending on where he campaigned.  And now, Dragnet has been ruined.  Thanks ass-hats.

WHAT CAN I SAY, IT HAS INTRINSIC VALUE

I visit this one site pretty much whenever I can because it has lots of interesting stuff from around the Net that I dig. If you’ve ever seen the sneezing panda video, their trademark is stamped right at the beginning. But before you go to the site, be warned, it is VERY Not Safe For Work. Basically, it has a ton of cool stuff, but also a lot of porn that is just flat out gross (the people in the photos, not that porn is gross). It’s orsm.net.

Anyways, my favorite sections are the Random Shite photos (which can make you go from laughing to vomiting in less than a second), the non-porn related image galleries (for instance a gallery of sculptures made from weapons or the Google HQ) and the text everywhere (funny jokes, dirty jokes, etc).

Because I don’t reccommend you go to the site (even the photo galleries have nasty porn ads all around it) here’s something from it you might find interesting. Enjoy!
