My Secret Life As Plankton

Don't judge a posting by its title. It's actually quite amazing. Really.

Maths Before Calculators

Good luck keeping up. I got lost pretty quickly on this video.

On a side note, judging by the length of the guys shirt sleeves, dude is either a 90s hip hop fan or has very recently dropped a ton of weight.

A Gangster Rap Conspiracy Theory

"The Secret Meeting that Changed Rap Music and Destroyed a Generation"
From some anonymous dude, via hiphopisread


After more than 20 years, I've finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I've simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren't ready for.

Between the late 80's and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen...

Can I Use Your Bathroom Shower?

"Aw hell nawwwwwwww!!!"

The people from Replyboard—a service that claims to eliminate Craigslist trouble—wanted "to make the point that you have no idea what will happen when you meet a complete stranger from Craigslist." So they went to visit four sellers with a hidden camera, like asking to use the bathroom and taking a shower.

Hit the jump for a few more treats.
