- LOVE the Republican-to-English dictionary. AND the Ukranian steampunk computer tower.

- I also loved the "Banned by the Bible" photo at 9gag. I also wanted to add that the Bible has some pretty wonky advice on dealing with mildew (Leviticus 14:33-53). Wouldn't it have been easier for God to instruct the ancient Hebrews on how to distill alcohol, then command them to wipe away mildew with it? Jeez.
