Slim Jims Slimming.

We have posted a few times about the destruction of a slim jim factory (and there is surprisingly only one in the US) and how it would lead to a shortage of slim jims this summer.

A few weeks later we posted photographic evidence that there was, in fact, no shortage.

Turns out that that proclamation may have been a bit premature.

Take a look at the latest photographic evidence:

Compare that to the previous slim jim at the convenience store photograph

There are so few slim jims they had to put out another brand of salted "beef" stick. Matador, now is your chance to shine!!!

Okay, We Get It: Nobody Fucking Knows

For Christs sake, can someone please answer the question: Is it or is it not melting.

The washington post says it's 86 degrees somewhere in the western Arctic-1500 miles north of seatle--and that a lot of ice is melting. A lot of ice. "The Arctic Ocean has given up tens of thousands more square miles (square kilometers) of ice on Sunday in a relentless summer of melt, with scientists watching through satellite eyes for a possible record low polar ice cap." (wapo)

Full Story here.

Death Delayed Again: GOOD NEWS TUESDAY!

The Large Hadron Collider is experiencing even more problems! Sweet. Take that you wanna-be black-hole creating monster!

"Many of the magnets meant to whiz high-energy subatomic particles around a 17-mile underground racetrack have mysteriously lost their ability to operate at high energies." (nytimes)

It could now take "years, if ever," before it can operate at full power.

What have we learned from this little financial and scientific fiasco? God doesn't like it when humans invent another way to destroy themselves so he causes minor, yet crippling, electrical connection problems. Thank you Jesus!
