Behold the Periodic Table of Awesoments – a collection of … things … that have been deemed awesome by 1 guy and a couple of commenters.
Let’s hear about it in the creator’s own words:
In the 300 B.C., years before the birth of black Jesus, Aristole postulated that all good things were made of “win.” That was a pretty good guess, but he was drunk and probably also having an orgy. Modern day awesominers know there are actually 118 fundamental “awesoments” that compose all good things. The Periodic table of Awesoments can be a very useful tool. It’s designed to show the relationships between awesoments, and often one can even predict how awesoments interact simply by their positions on the table.
I saw this and had two immediate reactions:
1) Someone likes videogames.
2) Where the hell is marijuana?
I’m torn here, because there are some totally worthy items on this list of awesomeness – Bacon (Bn), Christopher Walken (Wn), Pirates (P), Mustache (Ds?) and more.
Then again, there’s also crap like Taco Bell, Trilobites and Mullets (well, mullets are awesomely horrible). Still, there seems to be a dangerous blurring of the lines between ‘cool’ and ‘awesome.’ They are not the same thing.
Shit, the element for Mj is Moon Jumps? Really? There isn’t another MJ that comes to mind first?
Ah well, this is a good try to put together a list of all the awesome things in life, but I think we can all agree the periodic table isn’t the place to hold them. Even if you love moon jumps.Alex
Footwear (and industrial hemp) specialist IPath has collaborated with Bob Burnquist to drop a limited edition of their shoe the Grasshopper. In fine IPath tradition, this model is made of hemp and sports colors from Bob’s homeland of Brazil.
If you dig hemp shoes, IPath has plenty more where that came from (warning: random sizes are available). Maybe you can grab them in time for Christmas and warm that special person’s

Hoping to sap as much money as possible by leveraging one of the most famous bands of modern time, Carnival has created a Pink Floyd themed cruise called the Great Gig in the Sea.
The cruise starts Friday, May 1st, 2009 through Monday, May 4th, 2009 and leaves from Miami to the Bahamas and back. Cover group ‘Think Floyd USA’ (terrible band name) will be providing music each night on the Carnival Imagination.
I’m kind of partial to Which One’s Pink? – the badass Pink Floyd cover band I’ve seen 3 times that; a) has an original name, and b) rocks the hell out of the stage.
If you decide to go, good luck with sneaking buds onto the cruise ship. Trust me, it’s harder than you’d think.
Check out a video of Think Floyd after the jump…Perry
Focusing just on the lost tax revenue, economists in this Marijuana Policy Project video estimate the government is missing out on roughly $10-14 billion. Additionally, marijuana prohibition is roughly calculated to cost $40 billion per year.
Any movement towards legalization would generate billions for the economy (not to mention new jobs), but it would also lessen the impact of jail over-crowding and enforcement costs.
Anyway, we all know the facts by now, this is another way to present the information to any skeptics out there in a bite-sized, focused video.
With California Supreme Court’s recent decision not to review San Diego County official’s lawsuit regarding medical marijuana cards, several counties which had been dragging proverbial feet to abide by California Senate Bill 420, are now hurrying to comply or face pending litigation.
The bill, which lays out basic guidelines for medical marijuana implementation, had been challenged by San Diego county, and several other counties waited to see what the outcome would before forcing the issue on implementation.
Following San Diego county’s loss in appellate court and the Supreme Court’s decision, those who took the wait-and-see approach like Ventura County eventually began adopting these programs.Perry
Lisa Molyneux, a Santa Cruz dispensary owner, recently requested a zoning permission which would allow her to build a different sort of bakery.
The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Molyneux’s intention is to produce baked goods with THC and sell them next door at her dispensary. She said it would allow her to better control the conditions and the THC concentration of the baked goods she sells.
The owner’s plans are expected to be approved, as even the local police, which initially argued against the dispensary being allowed — the first of its kind in the county when it opened three years ago — are now in support of her efforts.Perry
And some spandex so fierce it should be illegal. And to answer your question — yes, that is Hightower from Police Academy.Alex
Some people need drugs to be creative. Some people don’t. Then there’s the in between category that likes to document the creative impulse whenever drugs lead to action. In this case, Jeremy Eaton’s gallery of drawings takes a look at the results of an overtly stimulated mind.
Jeremy drew on anything from pot to acid, and the results definitely change with each substance. My personal favorite is the ‘Many Eyed’ hash composition (pictured above).
Also, there are some twisted looking pot recipe drawings (scroll down halfway) that Jeremy did for the Mercuy News. So that’s what happens when talent and an overactive imagination combine.
