Marines blow up concrete walls protected only by a blanket — Watch US Marines with the 3rd Marine Logistics Group, 9th Engineer Support Battalion show how they get into buildings. The most amazing part is when they blow a concrete wall while they all stand there in line, just protected by a ballistic blanket. These guys are nuts.

Open Letter to Steve Jobs: It's Time to Stop the Censorship — Look at this magazine cover. It's Madonna. Madonna showing her breasts. Without nipples. Why? Because of Apple's silent censorship, that's why. We said it already: It's time to declare war against Apple's censorship. Steve, you are going the wrong way.

Is There Anyone Stupid Enough to Believe That This Cable Has Anti-Virus Protection? — This "Xbox 360 Elite HDMI cable" should be just like any other HDMI cable in the planet, right? Wrong!

According the paper Rings and Radial Waves in the Disk of the Milky Way-published in the Astrophysical Journal-we should call it the Corrugated Cardboard Galaxy, as shown in the diagram above. Even more surprising: It's 50-percent larger than previously thought.

This delicious Hungarian pasta dish looks like boiled maggots — Our friend Anna Péter, from the food blog Malackaraj, continues to delight my virtual taste buds with another gross-looking Hungarian plate. This one is a maggot-like pasta called tojásos nakedly, a plate that you eat with a lettuce salad called fejes salátával. Apparently, it's one of Hungary's most iconic plates.
