A Real Live Flying House!


Two engineers were so taken by the scene from “Up” where the house takes flight that they tried to recreate it for a new National Geographic series “How Hard Can It Be?” The answer is that it was very hard, but possible. After inflating many, many giant balloons, the miniature yellow house did lift off. Someday, I plan to travel by flying house like Carl did, so it’s good to know it’s possible.

Over the weekend, David Arquette was in a pretty gnarly head-on collision, after swerving into oncoming traffic to avoid hitting a parked car. “I was on my way to catch a plane to Vegas to help my buddy Stevie D open his restaurant The Sugar Factory … so sad i’m going to miss it but glad to be alive for a rain check,” David tweeted after the incident. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far. Kathy, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.”

Sarah Palin reacts to the news that Kathy Griffin, who declared verbal war on Willow and faux-dated Levi Johnston, will be playing a Palin-esque character on an upcoming episode of “Glee.” Wonder if Kathy’s impersonation will be a quarter as good as Tina Fey’s? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

The First Legit Extraterrestrial

Well, here it is folks. The first confirmed alien. It’s a strand of fossilized bacteria found in a meteor. Not what I expected ET to look like, but hey. NASA scientists now believe that there is other life out in the big, bad universe. [Buzzfeed]

UPDATE: Sigh. As excited as I was about aliens, it turns out that this little strand of bacteria is a bunch of BS. Keep reading »
