There's something about liquor stores that bring out the very worst in people. Like once people enter those advertisement plastered glass doors, the switch for logic flips off and the TIME TO GET CRAZY switch is enabled. Fight, Rob, Steal, Fail. Here are the worst liquor store disasters captured on security cams.
Have you ever been without toilet paper? It's a horrible sinking feeling. Disgusting scenarios run through your head: should I squabble to safety, should I use what's in the trash, maybe my underwear? It's scary! Which is is why I'm going to pull this prank come April Fools.
While I was waiting to watch Panasonic's 3DHD demonstration earlier this week, I overheard what was surely the strangest conversation I'd ever eavesdropped at CES.
We usually stay in a dump of a hotel, the Imperial Palace, for $200. This year, we're at the Wynn for $129. In short, if you didn't rebook your CES hotel, you were overpaying.
Hey, we're back at CES. Yesterday was day zero, full of press conferences, but today is the day we all hit the floor. I actually never made it there.
Obviously, there are people who have better and more exciting things to do than watching a two hour Philnote. Frostastically chilling. [DRB]
Hey Jason, how's the Bay Area been? I'm at Lake Tahoe and I took my friend's 4runner up. Wasn't a good idea.
Oh, not that American TV is anything highbrow, but in Japan, balancing as much food as physically possible on your pet is like CSI Miami or something. [via Fark]
Hey Brian, yeah the Funde Razor was lots of fun, and I'm glad Chris from Wired was there to help out. I'm looking forward to the Gizmodo Snow Bunny Meetup in 2009 too, and all the broken bones that'll result in. And speaking of cold, it is COLD now. Winter managed to stay away until recently, but it's full on December…
Hey Chen Chen, It's been a few days since I've written, but first off, let me say how HAPPY I am right now. The Giz Gallery was more fun and better received than I'd expected. And Funde Razor SF, done with Wired and Boing Boing Gadgets and Kotaku last night was amazing, too.
Hey Brian, looks like you got to meet a lot of NY readers over there in the Giz gallery. Luckily for me, we're going to have a similar event, minus the gigantic TV, but plus a lot of booze, over here in SF. It's called the Funde Razor SF event.
Hey Jason, Chris and I got into NY yesterday and haven't really stopped moving since then. The Gizmodo Gallery has been a huge success so far, especially with Phil Torrone from Make doing free laser etchings all day for anyone who brought him a graphic and a gadget to tattoo. But setup, well, it took awhile.
Hey Brian, remember the book Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft wrote? The one on Japanese game centers (arcades) and the different types of games, players and cultural influences surrounding them? It's available now!
