Nice one, Subby. I clicked thinking I was going to see pics of my neighbor, who's touring with boston as guitar and vocals right now.
Good pics, nonetheless.

From Best of Craigslist. This is priceless! Free MC Hammer Pants!

NINJA HAULER: 2005 Nissan Xterra - $12900 (Ronan / Lake County)

OK, let me start off by saying this Xterra is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it was possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o'clock shadow, this Nissan would look like Tom Selleck. It is just that manly.

It was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up that adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you had your eye on. It wasn't meant to transport you to yoga class or Linens & Things. No, that's what your Prius is for. If that's the kind of car you're looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. I mean it. Just stop.

This car was engineered by 3rd degree ninja super-warriors in the highest mountains of Japan to serve the needs of the man that cheats death on a daily basis. They didn't even consider superfluous nancy boy amenities like navigation systems (real men don't get lost), heated leather seats (a real man doesn't let anything warm his butt), or On Star (real men don't even know what the hell On Star is).

No, this brute comes with the things us testosterone-fueled super action junkies need. It has a 265 HP engine to outrun the cops. It's got special blood/gore resistant upholstery. It even has a first-aid kit in the back. You know what the first aid kit has in it? A pint of whiskey, a stitch-your-own-wound kit and a hunk of leather to bite down on when you're operating on yourself. The Xterra also has an automatic transmission so if you're being chased by Libyan terrorists, you'll still be able to shoot your machine gun out the window and drive at the same time. It's saved my bacon more than once.

It has room for you and the four hotties you picked up on the way to the gym to blast your pecs and hammer your glutes. There's a tow hitch to pull your 50 caliber anti-Taliban, self cooling machine gun. I also just put in a new windshield to replace the one that got shot out by The Man.

My price on this bad boy is an incredibly low $12,900, but I'll entertain reasonable offers. And by reasonable, I mean don't walk up and tell me you'll give me $5,000 for it. That's liable to earn you a Burmese-roundhouse-sphincter-kick with a follow up three fingered eye-jab. Would it hurt? Hell yeah. Let's just say you won't be the prettiest guy at the Coldplay concert anymore.

There's only 69,000 miles on this four-wheeled hellcat from Planet Kickass. Trust me, it will outlive you and the offspring that will carry your name. It will live on as a monument to your machismo.

Now, go look in the mirror and tell me what you see. If it's a rugged, no holds barred, super brute he-man macho Chuck Norris stunt double, then contact me. I might be out hang-gliding or BASE jumping or just chilling with my ladies, but I'll get back to you. And when I do, we'll talk about a price over a nice glass of Schmidt while we listen to Johnny Cash.

To sweeten the deal a little, I'm throwing in this pair of MC Hammer pants for the man with rippling quads that can't fit into regular pants. Yeah, you heard me. FREE MC Hammer pants.

Rock on.
 
2009-01-05 04:52:20 PM

#16 and #28 are by far, the best ones that aren't man-made. Wish I could have been there for those.

The upcoming 25th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province appears to be upcoming.

I wonder if it's actually ongoing, since there appeared to have been people enjoying the upcoming 25th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province.

NOTE to all you asshats that keep posting the naked man in the pond with an ax. It's going to get removed.

For the two who have already attempted it...

"A member of the "Optimalist" heath club hacks a hole into the ice covering a canal near the village of Viazynka, Belarus on December 28, 2008. The club promotes a healthy way of living, encouraging its members to spend most of their free time in the countryside."

Healthy involves going butt-naked in a frozen pond with an axe?

And #24 looks more like Yukon Cornelius than Santa Claus.

*sigh*...why the Fark not...?

..go rush to the speaker that booms
I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly when I play a dope melody
Anything less than the best is a felony
Love it or leave it you better gain weight
You better hit bull's eye the kid don't play
If there was a problem yo I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it!

/I hate this song...

Every single photo from the upcoming 25th Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province is tied for first place in the "Ugliest Photo in That Slideshow" award.

Its garish over-the-topness, that peculiarly Chinese willingness/ability to go about three levels of gaudiness beyond anything that even the USA might be able to achieve at its crassest and most lavish.

I'm still not sure #23 is adequately captioned

You know who else was white and capitalizing on a trend that was currently rising?

That's right - Jim Carrey.
