You Should Have Seen This

Are you ready to catch up with the Internet? Do you want to know every meme and every popular video and every strange picture and every funny joke that has ever been converted to bits and bytes and put online?

Then spend the weekend going through Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of The 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced On The Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something.

The site is a rather definitive list of just about everything that has ever earned its 15 minutes of Internet fame, and if you make it out alive, you’ll have the collective knowledge of about 99% of the people on the Internet crammed into your brain.

Just be prepared to be amazed, shocked, scared, and a little bit afraid.

…Smash Lab sucks?

Anyone who has seen Discovery Channel’s Smash Lab show can probably agree on one thing: It sucks!

Despite being an attempt by Discovery Channel to duplicate the success of their very popular MythBusters show, the combination of terrible projects, awful hosts, and lackluster to simply non-existent science content means it’s one of the worst shows on television.

For most, Smash Lab’s suckiness simply equates to an hour of their day when they can’t watch the Discovery Channel (or two hours if for some god forsaken reason they decide to do re-runs) but for two guys named Eric, it means much more.

That’s because the two Erics run a design studio out of Canada called smashLAB, and now, whenever anyone Googles the name of their company, the results are filled with website after website decrying that “Smash Lab sucks!”

To combat this problem, they decided to not go after Discovery Channel for taking their name, but instead to create a website where they could openly request that Discovery Channel make Smash Lab suck a little less so that positive reviews can start to replace the negative ones:

Smash Lab Sucks

It might not be enough to save the show, but hopefully their rather funny plea will get the two Erics enough business to survive Smash Lab’s downfall.

…It’s Things Thursday: rayD8gig?

rayD8gig

For Halloween, Mimoco is releasing a special “ultra-limited” edition of rayD8gig, an inverse color variant of the immensely popular MIMOBOT Core Series 2 character, rayD8.

Only 200 will be made, and they’re only available in the 8GB flavor, so if you want one of these glow-in-the-dark memory sticks for your own collection, then you better hurry, because they’re going fast.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Eat Drink or Die?

Eat Drink or Die

Eat Drink or Die is the third site from the creators of Funny or Die and Shred or Die, and focuses, surprisingly enough, on food.

The site works by using a rating system to pick out the quality (delicious) content, and killing the rest. The rating system breaks down as follows:

In addition to daily shows and exclusive content, Eat Drink or Die also breaks their videos down by topic, so that you can see what’s popular in any of these channels:

It’s not just videos though, as Eat Drink or Die also features exclusive blogs that you can read between meals, such as:

Apparently the ‘or Die’ crew has got their formula down, because it works well, and delivers you fantastic, and often exclusive content, in an easy to sort and understand manner.

Hear that YouTube?
