The Midnight Show riffs on Twilight and advertises cars while giving NSFL advice and teaching us how to love our dogs, but not our children. Most importantly they keep us safe with their PSAs
iPhone 4 came out but that's nothing, SILLY BANDZ are still where it's at!!!! What they are is rubber bands that are shaped like animals and shapes. These are extremely cool and you can wear them on your wrists or even put your photos of them on the company website. Adults don't like them sometimes. I want a bird one
The Childhood Goat Truama Foundation. All your childhood carpinae-based nightmares are belong to them. (just a brief reprieve from election coverage - via the ultimate insult)
bzzzpeek - a fun site with kids from around the world imitating animals and vehicles in an exercise of onomatopoeia. Similar to a post last year, this version adds sounds from native speakers and some cute visuals, making for a neat toy. MeFi moms & dads take note - submissions from kids age 2 to 7 are invited. flash and sound alert!
Orlando is under attack by alligators: something that isn't that uncommon, but seems particularly bad this year. We're used to losing a hunting dog or two, but when the gators start taking down horses (don't worry, the horse lived) and killing young children in an urban environment, you've got to wonder what's happening. Tip to tourists from a local: if chased by a gator, flee in a zig-zag pattern (gators are pretty fast, but turn like Sherman tanks.)
