Mega Bass Man is here to destroy us all

Be wary of the Sonic Boom!  Our pal Dr. Eric barely made it out alive!

What the hell is happening here?

Do-it-yourself selfie stick

There’s the selfie stick:

It’s probably good for your core, too.

Is this washing machine broken or is it just happy to see you?

Sometimes readers really like to chime in on Facebook

Over the weekend I published a post called San Francisco nightlife “hot spots,” then and now. For a Sunday afternoon post, it got a lot of attention, especially on Facebook:

Soooo, follow Mission Mission on Facebook if you wanna take part ;)

LOL Look at this weird old dude eating hipster ice cream

Drone poem

Bernalwood today did a great post about drone politics, and there’s a pretty great discussion going on in the comments section too, but commenter “queenie” stole the show with this epic piece of poetry:

The leash-less dawgs are all a-bark,
HARK! — there’s a spy in the sky above the park!
Out from the cafes, out from the homes,
the Bernalites look up and see DRONES.
They’re buzzing up a storm of infernal noise,
military-esque these ain’t no toys.
Camo-clad controllers, moms and dads with strollers,
in the same damn Bernal bubble,
you know there’s gonna be trouble.
Some say it’s fine,
some say it’s good,
taco-copters to deliver my take-out food!
but you know you’re gonna pay
when your taco lands
in some un-picked poop
in the playground sands.
So welcome to the future
and expect to see more
How do you like dog crap
with your Al Pastor?

Welcome to the future, indeed! Good work, Bernalpals!

Read on for lots more discussion.

Google Translate is really powerful these days

I mean it’s way more powerful than Google Image Search, which completely failed at the same query:

None of these results are what me and my German pen-pal were looking for.

Also, did you know the German word for slug is basically “naked snail”?
