The “Smells Like Teen Spirit” / “Final Countdown” mashup you hoped would never come is now here. Thanks WaxAudio, this is almost impossible not to sing-along with.

On last night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher , during a discussion about legalizing marijuana, Zach Galifianakis lit up a joint in order to drive home the point that California Democrats are wary of publicly supporting Prop 19 because of the stigma still associated with pot smoking.

Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States of America. I may be a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

Speaking of politics, today is Stewart & Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear at the National Mall in Washington DC. To celebrate this momentous occasion here’s some foursquare badges…

A bunch of Jews, non-Jews, and Lindsay Lohan come together in support for the American Jewish World Service in this Judd Apatow PSA rather understandably not approved by the American Jewish World Service.

In non-related news, this sign was spotted at last night’s World Series Game.

A Belfast film-maker has posted a video on the internet showing what he says could be evidence of time travelling. Via: BBC NEWS
George Clarke from east Belfast has been puzzled for more than a year by a scene in a film which appears to show a woman talking on a mobile phone. The unusual thing is that the movie was made by Charlie Chaplin in 1928 – long before mobile phones were invented.

In the eight days since George posted the clip on Youtube – more than 2.5m people have viewed the video online. George was checking the extras on a Chaplin DVD box-set and began watching a clip of the 1928 Hollywood premiere of The Circus.

“As I sat back to watch it I realised in the first 30 seconds there’s A lady strolling by with her hand up to her ear which looked quite familiar in today’s society. So I wound it back and watched it again, zoomed it in and slowed it down and got other people in to check it out. Everybody had the same reaction – it looks like she’s talking on a mobile phone.”

He has since showed the clip to a number of people, including the audience of a Belfast film festival. No-one has been able to provide an explanation.

“A mystery like this one, bottom line I don’t think we’re ever going to find out,” George said. “My initial reaction was that’s a mobile phone, they weren’t around then, my only explanation – and I’m pretty open-minded about the sci-fi element of things – it was kind of like wow that’s somebody that’s gone back in time.”

If that’s proof of time travel then fuck it, I am going to travel to 1955 to meet my parents in high school, accidentally attracting my mother’s romantic interest. Then I will be forced to repair the damage to history by causing my parents to fall in love, while finding a way to return to 1985.
