  • The Retro-Future Never Looked So Good: US Steel's A Portfolio of Probabilities

    /

    A friend of mine once had some really stupid roomates. Not so much stupid, as ignorant. You see, he was showing them old Three Stooges videos and they responded with “Who are these idiots?

  • Future Hoons of America: Abdication of Parental Responsibility Edition

    /

    Do you think that any helicopter mom would allow her little snowflake to “ride dirty” on a pit bike? You see, modern parenting and all the various social services that strive to keep kids out of harm’s way are stifling our childrens’ innate and noble urges to hoon.

    /

    Say what you want about the price of gasoline; controversy aside, it’s the price of water that gets silly-absurd. When potable drinking water is virtually free from taps installed just about everywhere, the value equation isn’t worth debating.

    On Thursday’s Name That Part, we relied on grainy picture quality and poor camera angles to stump the Hooniversal Collective — just like they do on eBay!
