1. Want to see pictures of North Korea’s rusting, dilapidated amusement park. Apparently the government has to bus in a few loads of forced patrons just to keep the park from being absolutely empty. Full story here.
2. Barry Deley, a British-Columbian sports anchor, wins a house worth $2.5 million live on the air. When the winning name is drawn, it quickly dawns on the news team that it’s their own sportscaster. Watch video.
3. This is worth another mention. Check out this funny collection of dating videos from the 80s.
4. Options for Bunker Living. I’ve always wondered where they park their car? Story here.

4. I love this story about a guy named Taylor Baldry who thinks we have forgotton how satisfying it is to have fce-to-face conversations with people. He recently set up a table and chairs at Lake Calhoun with a sign that read “Free Conversations.” He has a menu board of topics he’ll discuss with you. For more than 2 1/2 hours, the folding chairs were never empty. (full story)
5. I love tree houses! I have never had one, but I think I want to build one someday. Maybe I’ll hire German treehouse design firm Baumraum to build it. Then I could have something like this!

Testament cover of Metallica’s Seek and Destroy

This Testament cover of Metallica’s “Seek and Destroy” is sure to melt your computer speakers. Turn it up! I think I like Chuck Billy’s vocals more on this song than I like Hetfield.

Thanks for the tip Junior.

The first known all-African-American heavy metal band

This is a picture of the first known all-African-American heavy metal band. Black Death formed in the late 1970’s and hailed from Cleveland, OH where the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is located. Coincidence? I think not. Read about them here. Check out their music here on Amazon.

The dude standing middle in the back needs to work a bit on his metal face, but the rest of them pretty much blow my metal mind. (via 9GAG)
