One tree, four years of work and an indescribable amount of talent: that’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese wood carver chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see what he created.

I am not an expert on foreign films (or any movies for that matter), but this might be the worst acting I have ever seen for a death scene. Might be the worst acting I have ever seen period. And that includes ALL Nicolas Cage movies.
The 1974 film from Turkey is called ‘Kareteci Kiz’ (Karate Girl) and it follows the story of a young girl who becomes a policewoman and seeks revenge against criminals who murdered her father and husband.
In this clip, the protagonist uses poorly choreographed karate and an obvious prop gun to take down a baddie with a ‘stache that would give Tom Selleck a boner.
Time to push this one to the top of the Netflix queue.

So I guess there is a place in the U.S. where full-body spandex suits are trendy. That place? South St. Paul, Minn.
Here is a recent report from the Woodbury, MN police blotter. Seems like this fashion is freaking people out. I don’t blame them. I saw two guys like this when I was walking to a parking ramp the other night after a Twins game. They made me uneasy and I kinda wanted to punch them.
Has anyone else seen this out in public before? Are you one of these people? Fess up! You can buy your own spandex suit here.

You know you have been into a couple of these bands before. Admit it. Well here is what John Peck says these bands say about you. Here are some of my favorites.
Jimi Hendrix: You are under 20 or over 65.
Chicago: You are incapable of talking about Chicago without mentioning their horn section.
Foreigner: You have a severely wrinkled Jane Fonda poster under your bed.
Styx: You have a severely wrinkled Foreigner poster under your bed.
Journey: You own those running shoes that are shaped like feet.
See these many others on the original post here. (via McSweeney’s)
