Adults See Carpet; Kids See Molten Lava
If you are one of those people who, like me, cannot even imagine what might be going on in the minds of children, then here is a fun website to share with your friends who are parents so you can feel less like an alien creature and more like a humanoid with real feelings and an ability to “relate” to a person under the age of 12. Pleated Jeans has an hilarious post that compares a series of pictures of ordinary stuff as adults see it versus how kids see it. Above you will see an example from the “Hot Lava” game that even I played as a kid, where you have to jump from one piece of furniture to the next without touching the floor, or risk being swallowed up by the “hot lava” which has replaced the carpet.

This One Is My Favorite
Hey, remember when terribly unfunny comedian Jay Leno retired from Late Night TV and passed the torch to Conan O’Brien? And then he took the show back? What huge dick move. This clip of Jimmy Kimmel’s recent appearance on Jay Leno’s crappy “Ratings Poison” talk show has been viral for few days now, but I just had to post it where I can watch it whenever I need a good, hearty, sadistic belly laugh. Today, we are all Jimmy Kimmel! Freedom!
Madonna as She Appeared in the 1985 Movie, Desperately Seeking Susan
“Madonna in 2009 looks like a leather sack stretched tightly over a homemade sculpture of a Velociraptor made out of broken sticks, chicken bones and Terminator parts. But this was not always the case! She used to be a human woman, with soft skin and actual hair and a face and everything. Those days, of course, are long gone; drifting into the thick, smoky haze rising off of the clay pot where she mixed the bat wings and the blood of the innocent in her cursed spell of everlasting life. But you can still catch a glimpse of her, the Madonna that was, in movies like Desperately Seeking Susan. So young! So bad at acting! So what! It’s just nice to be reminded that there was a human being under the exoskeleton of desperation and Skynet Patented Real-Flesh Organic Compound. Even monsters used to have dreams!”
From Gabe’s weekly column over at VideoGum: The Hunt For The Worst Movie of All Time, which I read religiously.
