Popular Mechanics Predicts December 12, 2012
I find the near-term technologies interesting, but I take their long range predictions with a grain of salt.

Post-Post: The posted video (regarding the Mario Bros.) was posted in error. Had it contained any blood splatter, any at all, I would have kept it posted as is, but since it does not, the originally-intended video has replaced it. SMSWL regrets the error.

Men of Legend July 16, 2011
Their prowess is potent.
Their features are manly.
They are… Men of Legend.
Let us recall and trace the lineage of their virile greatness…
The Northern North American exploits of this giant among lumberjacks were first reported in the U.S. in 1910, though his deeds date back to 1837. Though he has cleared millions of acres of woodland, Greenpeace has never dared to criticize him or his massive axe. He and his faithful companion, Babe the Blue Ox, are responsible for forming most of the bodies of water throughout the Upper Midwest.
Since 1991, this Super Bowl winning Chicago football coach has held the undefeated respect of his superfan admirers. Once, in the gap between Green Bay’s glory days, Ditka led the Da Bears in a 238 to negative 2 win over the Packers. (Ditka found a way.) It has been said that in a theoretical matchup between Ditka and a hurricane, Ditka would triumph effortlessly (unless the hurricane was named “Ditka.”)
Since 1996, on bar stools across the country, colleges and buddies have looked up to this 10 foot tall, successful business man and universally acknowledged SOB. It is said that he showers in grain alcohol, sheds his skin once a year, and uses his thigh as an anvil. He framed Roger Rabbit. Brasky was once seen scissor-kicking Angela Lansberry, and has been known to ride upon a steed perchance to spy a lady.
Facts about this roundhouse-kicking hero’s powers of manliness began sweeping the Internet in early 2005. Reportedly, Chuck Norris does not sleep, he waits. His tears can cure cancer, unfortunately he has never cried. Chuck Norris can divide by zero. Ghosts sit around their campfires and tell Chuck Norris stories.
The Most Interesting Man in the World
Many know of him now due to his 2006 personal endorsement: ”I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.” This international man of sophistication has lived a truly amazing life. So much so, that when he goes to Rome, they do as he does.
The Old Spice Guy
This confident, suave, and fresh-smelling man has been showered with female admirers since his first appearance in February of 2010. Just watch him being manly.
The always smooth and all-’Merican Keith Stone has been Keystone Light’s spokesman since early 2010. He is perhaps the most recent among the men of legend, but he will surely not be the last.

A Second Coming Sale December 13, 2010
A friend of mine from seminary once asked his fundamentalist hospital co-worker if he could have her stuff once she got raptured away.
“No,” she replied, ”that’s going to my family!”
I thought of that story when I saw this commercial hailing from Superior, Wisconsin.
Now, if I’m a potential customer, and this man convinces me that the world is ending soon, why would I want to buy gold jewlery?
