White People Problems

From bad tasting lattes at Starbucks, to ingrown hairs, to long lines at the Apple store it’s hard out here for a Caucasian. Just because they are white, doesn’t mean their burden is light.

Zach Selwyn and Eli Braden let it all hang out in the hilarious music video, White People Problems. Check it out below.

Bendito Machine III

Peruvian-born Jossie Malis is an award-winning illustrator and animator who surely thinks out of the box.

His latest animated project, Bendito Machine III features an ancient civilization and their interactions with modern technology. A village elder discovers a television and the tribe is fascinated with the new object, becoming overly-obsessed, and eventually hailing it as a god. One villager sees its evil nature and must find a way to destroy it.

With its minimalist colors and quirky sounds, Bendito Machine III is full of symbolism and certainly one of the best flash animations I’ve seen.

Edit: It seems one can only watch Bendito Machine IIIon Vimeo, so head there or watch the YouTube version below:

Bendito Machine I and II are after the jump.

Omegle: Chat to a Complete Stranger!

Omegle is a neat chat service. Created by an 18-year-old high school student Leif K-Brooks, Omegle lets you have a conversation with a completely random stranger. The chats are completely anonymous, and it does away with goofy usernames, opting to identify your chat partner simply as Stranger.

There is no filtering on it though and people can be completely inappropriate and it probably won’t take long before sex-starved strangers/murderers will be cybering you for naked pictures. I only send photos of my genitals to people I know (and hate).

Give it a try at Omegle and see some interesting conversations at an Omegle tumblelog.

Link Loving – April 02, 2009

Some hours back, I Tweeted something that pretty much sums up my day – “The horrors coming out my bowels are something out of this world ><“. I’ll just leave it at that, your vivid imaginations can take it from there.

Rumour around the ladies bathroom of a local Virgin Active gym is that tainted pistachios may be the cause of the horrible gastric problems people in Cape Town have been experiencing. In any case, let’s forget that shit with another edition of link loving ;)

Cheating Man Busted on Google Street View

The internet, like a double-edged sword, is, erm, double-edged. It (the Internet not the sword) can be full of porn interesting articles to captivate just about anybody. With so much information seemingly available for free, the Internet can also lead to your humiliation and demise. A British man experienced such a demise when his adulterous ways got uncovered by none other than Google Street View.

The man’s wife was using Street View to snoop on a female friend’s home when she noticed her husband’s Range Rover parked outside another woman’s house. Her husband told her he was away “on business” but she recognized the blinged-out hubcaps on his Rover. The woman is understandably furious and has contacted her divorce lawyers.

Seems like a credible story no? The Sun thought so (and so did Fox News and CNET) but it was all a hoax perpetrated by this man, Idiot Forever. I tip my hat to you, sir.

Indian Sewer Men: The Worst Job in the World

Mike Rowe from Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs has had his fair share of doing downright nasty jobs, but he makes good cash, wears the correct protection, and has a fancy home to go to after filming is done. Spare a thought for Ramesh Sahu, a sewer technician who works for the sanitation department of Calcutta most likely makes fuck-all cash and is doomed to do this job for the rest of his life.

Several people, like Ramesh have to clean out the sewers without any protective gear, and many die from deadly diseases and noxious gases from the depths below. Apparently Government guidelines says that helmets, gloves, and goggles should be worn, but the third-party contractors who hire these slumdog sewer men don’t seem to take much notice of rules.

Play GlueFO2

Another time waster delivered just in time for your lunch break. In GlueFO2, it seems that a manufacturer of intergalactic spaceships has fallen prey to the economic crisis and could not afford to fit conventional weaponry on your GluVex 3000. However, you do have a force field generator that you can use to pick up small red orbs and shoot them at the bigger , unfriendly orbs. You complete the level when the big orbs have been smashed into tiny orbs.

Use the mouse to control your GluVex 3000, and left-click will fling the orbs from your vehicle.

Play GlueFO2 at Kongregate.

An Honor Code Violaton

This would ring a bell for all the men who stayed in university residences whilst trying to complete their Bachelor of Alcoholism degrees. I’m proud to say I’ve never witnessed dudes jerking off in the shower, but is seems the University of Michigan is fed up with unruly semen clogging up their pipes. They have made adjustments to their honor code, outlawing masturbation in the showers:

Onelargeprawn Gets a New Look!

*This is not an April Fools joke*

Onelargeprawn has been online for just over 3 and a half months now and we (OK, me. Lucy Furr hates change) decided to change the look of the blog and add a few features so you, our dear readers, can have a richer experience.

Our new spanking theme is called Magazeen and was created by WeFunction Design Agency and released by Smashing Magazine. We’ve modified it and added a few bits and pieces:

  • Threaded comments – No more having to use the “@” symbol to reply to a specific commenter. Our previous theme did not support threaded comments, but our new one does. You’ll find a Reply link next to each comment. If you want to reply to as specific comment, click the link and type your comments – it’ll be shown in the right place.
  • Editing comments – You’ve just submitted a comment but have made a misteak and wish you could correct it. No need to wish anymore, you’ve now got 5 minutes after submitting a comment to make any changes you need.
  • Social bookmarking – After each full post, you’ll see icons for some of the popular social bookmarking sites. If you’d like to spread the post around the Internet, click the specific icon to submit the post to that social bookmarking site. We’ve included Digg, StumbleUpon, Twitter, Technorati, Del.icio.us, and Reddit. Note that you’ll need to be registered with the site to submit posts to it.
  • Featured content – On the sidebar, you’ll notice a new widget called Featured News. Here you’ll find links to the articles that we especially liked. Our most recent articles has moved to the top of the page and the list of categories is now at the bottom of the page.

That’s about it for the time being, but we’ll be adding new features as we go along. Let us know what you think of the new theme – likes, dislikes, general comments, or any bugs you may have spotted.
