    Did you know a Mad Max sequel was in the works? Dubbed as 'Mad Max: Fury Road' The fourth installment of the post apocalyptic franchise wrapped filming in mid December, and the slow trickle of production shots and concept art has started to trickle out to the public. This latest video features some on set footage from the shooting location of Namibia, showcasing a handful of deadly vehicles strutting their stuff. Starring Tom Hardy (Bane) in the role of Mad Max, the new installment will take place 29 years after the latest installment, 1985's 'Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.' A few...
  • Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw

    Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw I'm sorry, did you think I meant a chainsaw motor? I suppose that's understandable (after all, two-stroke chainsaw engines are often used to convert bicycles into rear-wheel-drive motorbikes), but I didn't say chainsaw motor, did I? I said chainsaw. Because whoever pieced together this unholy death machine has clearly left the power source attached to a number of other components. They've even opted for a FWD conversion so that the saw's guide blade and cutting chain could be front-mounted. 100% terrifying, 100% brilliant. Perfect for plowing through hordes of...
  • How Will We Get Around in the Post-Apocalypse?

    How will we get around in the post-apocalypse? One of the irritating things about many post-apocalyptic movies in TV shows is that everyone drives everywhere, with little thought about alternative modes of transportation. But how will we get around after armageddon? We weigh the post-apocalyptic transit options. Hopefully, down the line, we'd see groups of people teaming up to bring back trains, but in terms of personal transit in the immediate post-apocalypse, here are a few options: Cars: Ah, the noble car, transit mode of choice in far too many post-apocalyptic fictions. For some people, cars might be a logical...

    20 Things You Will Need To Survive When The Economy Collapses And The Next Great Depression Begins Michael Snyder May. 7, 2010, 10:26 AM (This is a guest post from The Economic Collapse Blog.) Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored...

    On MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, Maxine Waters claimed that the Tea Partiers were vulgar and out of control. She would know a thing or two about vulgar rallies… [VIDEO on site] WARNING: Adult language! I’ve been to every Atlanta-area Tea Party event since the first one back in February of 2009. I have yet to hear chants like the one expressed in this video. I also haven’t seen too many Barack Obama masks, blindfolded or otherwise. But she is right about conservatives waving flags, laughing, and having a great time. I’ve enjoyed every single event I’ve attended. There’s something cathartic...

    Maxine Waters Answers Bank Bailout QuestionsCreated On: Sunday, 15 Mar 2009, 1:16 AM PDT Inglewood (myFOXla.com) - Congresswoman Maxine Waters held a town hall meeting in Inglewood on Saturday, days after allegations surfaced that she helped bail out a bank her husband had ties to. There were no questions about the issue during the town hall itself, but Ms. Waters addressed questions about the bank controversy outside the meeting. On Friday, Rep. Waters, D-Inglewood, denied any wrongdoing amid reports her husband had financial ties to a bank she helped request $50 million in bailout funds. **SNIP** Waters said she also...

    LA Times ^ | 3/13/2009 | Richard Simon and E. Scott Reckard
    Rep. Maxine Waters, one of Los Angeles' most enduring liberal politicians, has come under scrutiny because of bailout funds that went to a bank in which her husband had owned stock and served on the board. Waters was a senior member of the congressional committee dealing with the financial crisis when OneUnited Bank -- one of the nation's largest minority-owned institutions -- received $12 million in bailout funds. Her husband, Sidney Williams, served on the bank board until early last year and held at least $500,000 in investments in the bank in 2007, the most recent year for which public...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 8/7/6 | Kevin Yamamura
    It was only eight months ago that some conservatives believed actor Mel Gibson would make a better Republican gubernatorial candidate than Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Back then, Schwarzenegger was coming off a divisive special election. Tanking in the polls, the Republican governor hired former Gray Davis aide Susan Kennedy, a Democrat, as chief of staff. That prompted the conservative California Republican Assembly to promote Gibson for governor. CRA President Mike Spence said at the time, "The governor's the one who jumped ship, so we're just trying to find a different captain." How things have changed. Schwarzenegger has since taken an eight-point...

    I heard the news reports and then on CBS this morning they had the couple on the Early Show. Looking at the parents, it’s easy to see where the baby got its weight. The parents are obese and the baby is starting off that way. Why should we celebrate this and give them all this TV coverage? All three will be a drain to our health care system for years to come.

    LEBANESE youths and ethnic "lions" from Melbourne are preparing to join Sydney's race riots, with busloads of troublemakers rumoured to be heading north. Expectations among the young Lebanese community in western Sydney that further trouble will develop over the weekend comes despite calls from their religious leaders, police and politicians for both sides to calm down. One 22-year-old ethnic Lebanese man yesterday told The Australian he and his friends were ready for a turf war. "The boys reckon it'll be like a scene out of Braveheart," he said. Sources within the Lebanese community said three busloads of young men from...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 12/12/5 | Kevin Yamamura
    If you're dissatisfied with one Hollywood politician in California, you can always find another as a replacement. Angered by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's appointment of a Democratic chief of staff, the conservative California Republican Assembly launched a Web site last week urging voters to draft actor Mel Gibson for governor. Gibson became something of a hero among religious conservatives after his 2004 movie "The Passion of the Christ." CRA President Mike Spence said he was further motivated by Gibson's public opposition to California's $3 billion stem-cell bond in 2004 - a successful ballot measure that Schwarzenegger supported. "The governor's the one...

Among the people we discussed were Bill Clinton, who pardoned FALN terrorists to help his wife, William Morales, FALN chief bombmaker being protected by Fidel Castro, and Joanne Chesimard, a cop-killer who is also being protected by Castro. The Bush-hating and despicable women from Code Pink, the group harassing wounded soldiers and families at Walter Reed Army Medical Center every week, will soon be off to visit their pal Fidel in his island...

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), one of Jean Bertrand Aristide's strongest supporters in the United States, was accompanying the ousted Haitian president and his wife to Jamaica on Monday, her office announced. The Bush administration doesn't like the idea. In the March 14 press release, Waters' office said the congresswoman is part of a delegation that went to the Central African Republic on Sunday to meet with Aristide. The two other Americans in that delegation are identified as "author Randall Robinson and attorney Ira Kurzban." Randall Robinson is the founder and former head of the TransAfrica lobbying group that...
