Ballsy Pickup Lines From Famous Historical Figures

According to the history books King Solomon had some 700 wives and a further 300 concubines. Can you imagine what sweet-nothings the king would utter to get more notches on his royal bed post? In a series of illustrations, CollegeHumor thinks up cheeky pickup lines for the king and some of history’s other famous figures.

From a rumbling in Marx’ lower classes to Nostradamus’ prediction of a good night, have a look at CollegeHumor’s imaginary pickup lines of famous historical figures after the jump.

Comical Water Wigs by Tim Tadder

L.A. Photographer Tim Tadder combines water balloons and bald people to produce a rather comical photo series. To create the effect of Water Wigs, Tadder would either drop balloons onto the domes of his subjects or use skinny balloons to form the shapes around the bald heads. He’d pop them and capture the resulting explosions.

Have a look at some of Tadder’s watery wigs after the jump.

Licence to Drive: A Ride Through the History of Bond Cars

This presentation by UK car dealers Evans Halshaw takes us on a ride through the history of Bond cars. Classics include the open-top Sunbeam Alpine seen in Dr. No, the submersible Esprit Series 1 in The Spy Who Loved Me, and the comically unconventional Citroen 2CV. The quintessential Aston Martin makes no less than eight appearances, including a vintage silver-birch DB5 in the upcoming Bond film, Skyfall.

Have a look at some the wonderfully minimalist illustrations of the Bond vehicles after the jump.

We Review: Tales of Graces f

Although Final Fantasy is perhaps one of the best–known JRPGs in English-speaking territories, many other, lesser known ones have been slowly migrating out of the Land of the Rising Sun (notable among them being the Monster Hunter series). One of the latest in this bunch of games is Tales of Graces f (or as my wife loves to call it: Tales of GrFaces—seriously…look at the logo!), part of the Tales series of games. Like Final Fantasy, the games in the Tales series have very little to do with each other, other than the name. Of course, this piqued my interested. Since I have a genuine love of and passion for JRPG games, I decided to see the sights in this game and see if it’s worth the price of admission.

“Natural Phenomena” by Reid Gower

Reid Gower found himself on a 6-month trip travelling between five U.S. states and to seven other countries. He decided to make his first ever time-lapse video. Entitled Natural Phenomena, Gower’s compilation shows not only the beauty of nature but also of our urban jungles.

Aside from the flashing lights, picturesque mountains, shiny sun dogs, and the quintessential aurorae, the video includes a very special view taken from the edge of space. Have a look at Natural Phenomena below.

We Review: SunFlowers

SunFlowers by The Game Atelier is an arcade-style game for the PS Vita that features a sun…and flowers. Hence the name of the game. I took it for a drive to see if I could shed some light on whether I have a green thumb…or a deadly one.

Announcing “The Splatters” Competition Winners

So many of you entered, and yet we can’t choose all of you, more’s the pity. But we do thank you all for your support! If you entered Tuesday’s The Splatters competition let’s see if Lady Luck has blessed you with with her loving gaze of luckiness, shall we? And our winners, as chosen by Randomizer.org are:

Jason, Ryno, Vince Estrada, and Abdul Quayum Parker!

Congratulations! Keep an eye on your mailboxes, dear winners, because The Lord Of All That Is Prawny will be in contact with your prizes!

Thanks go once again to the wonderful people at Spiky Snail for sponsoring the prizes!

Partysaurus Rex!

Try as he might, the impossibly small arms of Tyrannosaurus Rex mean that it can’t take its own profile picture, zip up a sleeping bag, or even hold hands with a She-Rex.

It’s an equally trying time for Toy Story’s plastic dinosaur Rex who wants to shed his party pooper image. In Disney Pixar’s latest animated short, Rex finds himself in a position where he can use his arms to get a (bath time) party started. It’s disco lights and dance tunes, an epic bubble bash like no other, and it’s all thanks to the king of the hot tub Partysaurus Rex.

Competition Time! Win “The Splatters” on Xbox 360!

NOTE: This competition has ended.

Who doesn’t love a good competition? This time, the kind folks at Spiky Snail Games have given us a few codes for The Splatters for Xbox360, and so they’re up for grabs. I reviewed the game over here, so if you don’t know what The Splatters is all about, give the post a read. It’s entertaining, I promise.

The game was 50% off to Gold members last week (400 MS Points), but if you missed the sale—or aren’t an Xbox Live Gold member—and you still want to play the Splatters in all its colorful, gooey, splattery glory, all you need to do is answer one teensy weensy simple question, and BAM! Your name goes into the draw for one of the codes!

Question: Name one of the stunt types that can be performed by the Splatters. Hint: I mention a few in my review, but any of the stunt answers will do!

This time, the competition is open to our readers worldwide, so hit the jump, and have at it!

[There was a form here. It is gone now.]

The usual terms and conditions with the exception that entry to this competition is open to anyone, worldwide. It will end at noon (SAST) on Friday, October 19th 2012, after which names will be drawn and the winners announced. Good luck!
