Eet sa me! Mario! Nintendo’s fan-favorite mascot Mario has ventured through many side-scrolling worlds, in search of magical coins – on the ground, inside bushes, on floating boxes, hiding in clouds. You don’t have to search high and low like Mario to find those coins; you just need to get the Super Mario Bros. Coin Candy Tins. These tins, shaped like the boxes seen in the Mario games, contain a wealth of coin-shaped candies. These coins won’t protect you against mushrooms, but they do taste good!
List Price: $ 3.99

Weird Twitter’s most legendary “bot” has been exposed. But what about its most revered character?
Many had suspected that the account was no longer a bot; few, and none at BuzzFeed, knew it was run by Jacob Bakkila. In any case, its popularity had been steadily rising for nearly three years.
The reveal was a surprise, but in retrospect made some degree of sense. Bakkila used to go by @agentlebrees on Twitter before deleting his account. He left Twitter before coming to work at BuzzFeed, for fear, he said at the time, of alienating potential employers. Some time after joining BuzzFeed he helped us with an oral history of Weird Twitter, where he participated in character — @agentlebrees was an early, and influential, account among Weird Twitter people. Few knew who was really behind it, but few cared. It was a character.
More interesting, in retrospect, was that he connected us with the second most visible, and by far the best loved, Weird Twitter account.
Jacob claimed to know Dril, which was strange, because nobody knows Dril. He offered to connect us, and said Dril was interested in participating in the oral history and gave me a throwaway email address. He responded, and it was funny.
Jacob also told us a little about Dril, saying he was a graphic designer, or something like that, and that he lived in the tri-state area. He said he had hired him to do some work on a “project” he had been working on, but stopped short of giving us any identifying information. Suggestions that we give this “graphic designer” work were rebuffed. The secrecy was never explained but never really questioned; Dril is an art project and the creator didn’t want to come forward, at least not all the way. It made enough sense.
He also pointed us to a video series created by Dril, with unspecified others, documenting Trey Parker and Tré Cool's battle to rename April either Treypril or Trépril, and one policeman's mission to stop them at any cost. It's, well. It's something:
“To date, what information we have about Google Glass … largely comes from media reports, which contain a great deal of speculation, as well as Google’s own publicizing of the device,” wrote the officials. Though Google has created…
Dollar collapse question. When are countries going to realize we dont produce anything other than green paper?
Question by LolWhoGivesA5hitAboutGlobalWarming: Dollar collapse question. When are countries going to realize we dont produce anything other than green paper?
We consume all the worlds resources in the states and produce nothing because of strict regulation on business and outsourcing. When are countries going to catch on the the fraud the federal reserve does? When are the people going to realizes the quantitative easing (printing money out of thin air) is just a way to keep the scam going longer?
Third might sound good, until you see how much we consume. Then you realize we need to be far ahead of even number one to keep a healthy economy.
Most of the worlds resources.

The US is the world’s third largest exporter.
“The EU [European Union] and the US economies account together for about half the entire world GDP and for nearly a third of world trade flows…
“EU goods imports from the US in 2010: €169.5 billion.
“EU services imports from the US in 2010: €131.0 billion.
“EU investment flows to the US in 2009: €79.2 billion.”
“As the world’s 3rd biggest exporting nation, America shipped $ 1.291 trillion worth of exports in 2008.
“Principal American exports were capital goods including aircraft, industrial supplies like organic chemicals, consumer goods including automobiles and agricultural products led by soybeans and corn.
“Based on 2008 statistics, America’s largest export clients were Canada (20.1%), Mexico (11.7%), China (5.5%), Japan (5.1%), Germany (4.2%) and the United Kingdom (4.1%).”
These ignorant, hysterical questions are typical of those who rant against “The Fed!”
And of those who try to scapegoat “Regulations!” as the cause of President Cheney’s Great Recession,
when ,in fact, it was the GOP’s ideology of De-Regulation that allowed the Global Plutocratic Cabal’s Big Banks to loot working Americans’ net worth:
International Monetary Fund’s former Chief Economist:
“Our leading bankers looted [the United States], plunged the world into deep recession, [starting Dec, 2007] and cost the United States eight million jobs.
“Now many of them stand by with sharpened knives and enhanced bonuses – willing to suggest how the salaries and jobs of others can be further cut.
“Consider the morality of that.
“Will no one think hard about what this means for our budget and our political system until it is too late?”
By Simon Johnson, former Chief Economist @ the International Monetary Fund.
Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate in Econ: The 2000s, the “Decade of Zero”: Zero gains for home prices, home equity, workers’ median income, employment, & stockmarket.
From 2001 to 2009, for the first time since WW2, the average American’s net worth fell, and by a huge 13%.
The 1990s had the largest increase, 44%.
Robert Reich, Sec of Labor under Clinton:
“What’s happened in the last 30 years is that worker [in the private sector] has taken a shellacking.
“The US economies’ problems lie w/ “fraud, deregulation and vast concentration of wealth.
“For three decades we’ve cut taxes on the wealthy while real wages stood still.”
The median American male worker earns less today [in 2010] adjusted for inflation, than he did 30 years ago.

Thanks to Rob, who does not rule anything but is still attempting to create an outerspace magnifying glass huge enough to vaporize earth with light. That … that may really work. Let me know if you require yet another lens polisher.
Question by Diet Soylent Green: Extremely important question regarding robotics/cybernetics?
I would like to become an immortal robot that turns into a helicopter by the end of this month. How can I do this without spending more than $ 25.92?
Okay, here’s the deal:
I will not only pay for the cost of the tools needed for this operation (which SHOULD be under $ 25.92 if we go about this the right way), but I will also give all my earthly possessions, including my pet lizard Biggie, to you as payment, as I will not be needing any of these items anymore once I avhieve this goal.
DUH! That’s why I’m a robot SLASH HELICOPTER! Helicopters don’t have to listen to humans! Haven’t you ever seen those shows where they spin out of control and cut off people’s heads??
