Things We Saw Today: Security Cameras In Party Hats

Things We Saw Today


It’s George Orwell‘s birthday, and security apparatuses are celebrating world-over! Someone promised they would bring cake, but I’m pretty sure that’s a lie. (via Laughing Squid)

  • Outrage of the day: an openly gay representative in the Ohio House was denied a chance to speak about the DOMA repeal on the grounds that he would be speaking “against God’s law.” Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Where did the separation of church and state go and how can we get it back? (via The Frisky)
  • Apparently, Gary Busey dreams of becoming a Hobbit. Literally. (via Filmdrunk)
  • In other LoTR-universe news– apparently Sir Ian McKellen has filmed his last scene as Gandalf for the Hobbit trilogy. Cue lots of crying and nostalgia. (via Variety)

Want to show some Griffindor pride on your special day? You might want to take a look at these Hogwarts House-themed wedding garters! (via Neatorama)

  • Action Labs is picking up The Garlicks–a comic telling the story of Pandora Garlick, a young girl who is trying to find a way to stand out in her otherwise very talented family. Also they’re all vampires. The series will be an “all-ages vampire tale” with bright colors, a big heart, and a lot of personality, written and illustrated by Lea Hernandez. (via The Beat)
  • Apparently, it’s so hot in Phoenix, Arizona right now that one local news station was able to bake cookies on the dashboard of a car. If you think the heat is unbearable where you are, you can be happy you’re not made of cookie dough right now! Or maybe you’d rather be cookie dough, because then you could deal with the heat by getting baked. (via Laughing Squid)
  • For anyone who really wanted to be Magenta and Riff-Raff from Rocky Horror Picture Show, you’re in luck! Anti-matter guns are a thing that actually exist now. You can go back to Transexual Transylvania now, but please, don’t turn us all into crazy dancing burlesque statues first. (via Nerd Approved)

Homer Simpson invented “The Homer” to be the car for the modern man. Now, it will be the car for the LeMons-dern man. This car will be a competitor in the 24-hour LeMons race in California. (via Big Shiny Robot)
