I was sitting in my sofa with my son in my lap and we were playing a game on the Iphone. It must have been a very exciting game because suddenly it felt like it was becoming warmer and wetter. Oh no! Was he peeing on me? No that was impossible because he had a diaper. And it kind of felt like it was me, but at the same time not, but it did, but no and at the same time yes! I made this weird sound and my wife asked what it was all about. I answered: It’s getting all wet and warm I think I’m wetting myself! But I don’t think I am! Am I!?
Well it turned out that it was a faulty diaper. So I got wet, but at least I did not wet myself. The last time was like 30 years ago… and let’s hope it’s at least 30-40 more years to the next time I wet myself.
A fan of MMA and Ultimate Fighting? Do you like fighting simulations? This sim is just awesome and it’s free! I have two fighters (one pro and one amateur) and I’m loving it!
“Jungle Chaos” is a really great textbased game and I’m a big fan spreading the word. It has MMA, grappling, boxing and kickboxing!
This is the original script for The Marks of Parenthood
Usually they are a bit more sloppy than this. This is pretty compared to some of the other scripts and sketches
The Ricky Gervais Show Description: Two famous comedians bully a guy named Karl Pilkington. I don’t know where you can find the original podcasts for free anymore, but the concept have evolved to the animated series The Ricky Gervais Show and An Idiot Abroad.
Webcomics Weekly Description: Four famous webcartoonists talk about webcomics. Informative and surprisingly funny!
This American Life This podcast is simply the best and most interesting radio program in the known universe! This American Life is a weekly public radio show broadcast on more than 500 stations to about 1.8 million listeners. There’s a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It’s mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always.
BULLSEYE (the podcast formerly known as ”The Sound of Young America”) Description: A show about things that are awesome. The program features host Jesse Thorn, who refers to himself as “America’s Radio Sweetheart,” interviewing personalities in arts and culture, with a special focus on comedy.
Freakonomics Radio Description: In their books Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner use the tools of economics to explore real-world behavior. As boring as that may sound, what they really do is tell stories — about cheating schoolteachers, self-dealing real-estate agents, and crack-selling mama’s boys.
WTF WITH MARC MARON is a twice-weekly podcast hosted by stand up comedian Marc Maron. The program primarily consists of interviews with comedians and comedy writers. Funny, but also serious and sometimes dark.
TEDTalks Audio Podcasts Podcast versions of TEDTalks. Some of my favorite lectures: Barry Schwartz, Bjorn Lomborg, Dan Ariely, Dan Gilbert, Dan Pink, Ken Robinson, Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Steven Levitt, and Steven Pinker.
Skeptoid Description: Skeptoid is a weekly science podcast dedicated to furthering knowledge by blasting away the widespread pseudosciences that infect popular culture, and replacing them with way cooler reality. Each weekly episode focuses on a single phenomenon — an urban legend, a paranormal claim, alternative therapy, or something just plain stupid.
I also like these four Swedish podcasts.
If you don’t understand Swedish you can stop reading now
The Johan Wanloo Show Beskrivning: Sveriges bästa serietecknare genom alla tider (i mitt tycke i alla fall) rockar loss med en podcast som är lika galen som hans serier!
P3 Dokumentär Beskrivning: P3 Dokumentär är programmet som blickar bakåt, gräver i arkiven och pratar med dom som var med när det hände, där det hände. Min favoritepisod är nog “tattarkravallerna” i Jönköping 1948. Jag är från Jönköping och kände inte ens till incidenten.
Skeptikerpodden Ifrågasätter pseudovetenskap, vidskepelse och övernaturliga fenomen. Allt under ledning av den alltid lika trevliga John Houdi och en redaktion med kunskaper inom bland annat kritiskt tänkande, vetenskap, trolleri, medicin, psykologi med mera.
TSKNAS (Till Slut Kommer Någon Att Skratta) Några av Sveriges bästa (och ibland sämsta) komiker sitter och snackar skit… Varierande kvalitet, men när det är som bäst så är det riktigt underhållande.
Some boxers have funny or weird names like: Gayrat Ahmedov or Eric Crumble
But the best real name of a fighter is without a doubt Mike McFail!
What? Mike McFail? Really?
That’s his real name. And not only is it a funny name, but his career in boxing has (you guessed it) failed.
Mike McFail has lost 43 of his 57 fights. He has not won a single fight since 2005. He has McFailed!
Some funny or weird nicknames:
Owen “What The Heck” Beck
Vito “The Mosquito” Antuofermo
Willie “The Worm” Monroe
Tony “The Punching Postman” Thornton
Chuck “The Bayonne Bleeder” Wepner (the real Rocky Balboa by the way)
Michael “Second to” Nunn
Juan “the Hispanic Causing Panic” Lazcano
DaVarryl “Touch Of Sleep” Williamson
“The Dancing Destroyer” Herbie Hide
But the weirdest and most bizarre name in boxing? It’s a stage name; no it’s nothing like “The Fighting kid”, “Young Zulu Kid”, “Cocoa Kid”… or something like that.
In the late seventies and early eighties a heavyweight from Zimbabwe fought twice in his home country under the name “Hitler The Killer”!!
You be glad to know that Hitler lost both of his fights.
Relatives buy noisy toys to my 2-year-old ALL the time. Last Christmas my mother-in-law bought an extremely noisy plush dog (almost gave me a stroke). And some one bought him a damn microphone!! (Like a megaphone but also armed with horrible music and singing).
This Christmas my dad bought a noisy toy drilling machine and a noisy toy train!!
Lord have mercy on my ears!
Lucha Libre, kitsch and a kitten with santa clothes. I don’t know how you celebrate, but this is the way I roll. Merry Christmas!
