Sunday Burst of Weirdness

A two-fer, from MeFi this morning:

:: This guy is going to swim the entire length of the Amazon River, dedicating this effort to "the preservation of the Rainforest as well as to finding the cure for Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders that affect the brain of millions of people".

He's raising over $1,000,000 to do this. Of course, he could just give that million to an Alzheimer's research facility or do something similar, but where's the sport in that?

Plus, it's hard not to imagine the possibilities of what will happen: "Daredevil attempts to swim the length of the Amazon. Snuff film at eleven!"

(MeFi thread)

:: Atlas Shrugged 2: One Hour Later, since making fun of Atlas Shrugged is always good family fun. I don't recall ever seeing Bob the Angry Flower before.
