The Piss Dungeon

Earlier in the year Vice discovered a 'Piss Dungeon' inside a London watering-hole. Just in case you never got around to hearing/reading about it, here the story is in its entirety:

'The Shining' Conspiracy Theory

A believable conspiracy theory that attempts to explain how The Shining is really about how Stanley Kubrick cut a deal with the US government to fake the Apollo moon landing. It's actually quite a great story. Compelling and rich.

Actually these cats have cerebellar hypoplasia (also known as CH), so if you laughed you're probably going to hell.

Euthanasia Roller Coaster

We've all felt like we were going to die while riding a roller coaster before...then got off the ride and lined up again. The point of difference with this proposed roller coaster is that you're death is actually guaranteed.

From Wikipedia:
The Euthanasia Coaster is an art concept for a steel roller coaster designed to kill its passengers. In 2010, it was designed and made into a scale model by Julijonas Urbonas, a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art in London. Urbonas, who has worked at an amusement park, stated that the goal of his concept roller coaster is to take lives "with elegance and euphoria". John Allen, who served as president of the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, inspired Urbonas with his description of the ideal roller coaster as one that "sends out 24 people and they all come back dead".

The design starts with a steep-angled lift to the 510-metre (1,670 ft) (0.317 mile) top, which would take two minutes for the 24-passenger train to reach. From there, a 500-metre (1,600 ft) drop would take the train to 360 kilometres per hour (220 mph), close to its terminal velocity, before flattening out and speeding into the first of its seven slightly clothoid inversions. Each inversion would have a smaller diameter than the one before in order to maintain 10 g to passengers while the train loses speed. After a sharp right-hand turn the train would enter a straight, where unloading of bodies and loading of passengers could take place.

The Euthanasia Coaster would kill its passengers through prolonged cerebral hypoxia, or insufficient supply of oxygen to the brain. The ride's seven inversions would inflict 10 g on its passengers for 60 seconds – causing g-force related symptoms starting with gray out through tunnel vision to black out and eventually g-LOC (g-force induced loss of consciousness). Depending on the tolerance of an individual passenger to g-forces, the first or second inversion would cause cerebral anoxia, rendering the passengers brain dead.[citation needed] Subsequent inversions would serve as insurance against unintentional survival of particularly robust passengers.

Mike Mondays: The Flu Game

Fifteen years ago this evening, Michael Jordan stood in Utah tied 2-2 in a pivotal Game 5 against Karl Malone, Karl Malone’s MVP award which should’ve gone to Mike, John Stockton and the very real possibility of being one loss away from his first Finals defeat. Then, between June 8 and June 11, Mike became sick; so ill his status for Game 5 was in jeopardy with “flu-like symptoms.” What happened next – 38 points, seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and one kick ass Gatorade commercial – has been documented as a valiant performance only helping to cement Jordan’s GOAT status.

The Cobra Commander Likes His AC/DC

In case you we're more of a Jem fan and didn't watch much GI Joe as a youngster, The Cobra Commander has a high-pitched voice which sounds a lot like the dude from AC/DC. Hense the above video.

Now someone do a Gollum remix.

The Most Ignored Dynasty In Sports

America—at least in its own imagination—stands for certain things. For the idea that hard work and sound judgment bring success, and that success deserves celebration. That winners should be celebrated as long as they play by the rules. That teamwork, leadership, loyalty, and excellence all count for something. And that’s why the San Antonio Spurs, currently riding a stupendous run of 19 straight victories, are America’s favorite professional basketball team.
Except, of course, they aren’t. Not this year when they tied for the best record in the league, and not last year when they were the best in the West. Not in their 1999 championship run or the follow-ups in 2003, 2005, and 2007. Not for a single moment amid the glorious 15-year run with coach Gregg Popovich and big man Tim Duncan have the Spurs captured the imaginations of the American people or even its basketball fans. That’s because we are, ultimately, a nation of hypocrites that prefers drama queens, bad boys, and flukes to simple competence and success... 

Is That An ATM In Your Kitchen?

Mavericks championship winner (and now Brooklyn Nets player) DeShawn Stevenson, has installed what seems to be an ATM at his house, in his kitchen. Because you never know when you'll get the urge to make it rain...while braising a leg of lamb.
