…Some music is unwanted?

Vitaly Komar, Alex Melamid and David Soldier conducted an online poll to find out what types of music people are most annoyed by. The list includes:

    Holiday music, bagpipes, pipe organ, a children’s chorus and the concept of children in general, Wal-Mart, cowboys, political jingoism, George Stephanopoulos, Coca Cola, bossanova synths, banjo ferocity, harp glissandos, oompah-ing tubas and much, much more.

After compiling this list, they then took all of the styles and lyrical subjects and combined them into a single track, called simply “The Most Unwanted Music”.

Can you survive a listen?

…Some stores are large?

Store Space Graph

If you add up all of the floor space for some of the most common stores in the US, you would see that Wal-Mart covers more acreage than all of Manhattan.

Continuing down the graph, McDonalds is about one and a half times as large as Central Park, and then the rest of the stores sort of stand in line from there.

Just be glad that you’re not the one that has to clean all of that up.

Edit: Wonder where they all are?

Here’s a video of Wal-Mart’s almost bacteria like growth:

…Wal-Mart is pre-ordering the Wii?

Pre-Wii through Wal-Mart with their pre-order. Supplies are limited, and Nintendo fanboys are surely chomping at the bit for this one, so get them while they’re hot.
