Friday Bits of Tid - Good Friday Edtion

Howdy hi there, ya'll. It's Good Friday, or if you don't lean that way, it's also Earth Day.

It's Friday either way.

This is for all the Earth Day'ers: Iowahawk's 2001 Earth Week Cruise-In. Participants get to cruise down the virtual Internet boulevard by sending pics and descriptions of their favorite rides. The more fuel and horsepower consumed and created, the better. Planes, boats, and trains along with rare cars, bikes, and scooters are all on display for the discriminating gear-head.

This video from the link grabbed my attention, because it shows an engine block being machined from a solid billet of aluminum on a computer controlled milling machine. If you ever wondered what went on in a machine shop, this is the crux of the biscuit.

While we're on the subject, all kinds of things can be machined, like your face made from chocolate.

Remember when students would give the teacher an apple? How times have changed. This student gave the teacher some of her mom's weed. I guess the apple would be for later...

Those Brits go all out for their royal weddings, don't they? This British brewery has created a special beer for the occasion, with the finest malt, barley, and aphrodisiacs.

While we're on that subject, here's a fellow who lost 22 pounds on an all-beer diet. Beer, it's not just for breakfast anymore.

From the "Duh" file. A lawsuit that seeks to stop McDonald's from selling Happy Meals must be dismissed because parents can always prohibit their children from eating them. The lawsuit claims McDonald's unfairly uses toys to lure children into its restaurants. What's next? Toys R Us?

And finally, Hitler critiques Rebecca Black's Friday.

Enjoy the weekend, y'all.
