The Bad Boys of Pleasure Island (not safe for work!) is an up-and-coming Tumblr blog that expands and updates the mythos of Disney's Pinocchio for a new generation. Remember the part when Pinocchio and all his rowdy friends go to Paradise Island and (spoiler) get turned into donkeys? Well, given that you're using the Internet to read this, you shouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that it's been warped into a weird sex thing. Of course it has.
Did some housekeeping around the site. Notably, the Video section is back, thanks mostly to me getting my YouTube account back.
This page (warning: autoplay) is now the best place to experience my Obama/Hillary shipper video, which doesn't feel dated at all. Sorry about the Google ads, you have to be very careful if you try to dismiss them or else it will open YouTube in a new tab/window and the sync will be RUINED.

New Awful Link of the Day up, this time about the subreddit /r/SocialEngineering:
/r/SocialEngineering is a subreddit "dedicated to the art & science of human manipulation & social hacking." In other words, it's full of Machiavellian miscreants who treat every interpersonal interaction as a mind game that you can "win" by applying the appropriate psychological cheat code!
Crypto-Comics is not so much a webcomic as a cynical experiment to see how little effort can be put into one. It takes stick figures from Cyanide and Happiness and slaps a large circle with the Bitcoin logo over them. Everything else appears to have been made in Microsoft Word with the shape creation tool.

Bruce Tinsley tried to pick a random, funny -teen number and ended up going with 14. Hmm...14 words... now where have I heard that before?
The Fourteen Words is a phrase used predominantly by white nationalists. It most commonly refers to a 14-word slogan: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children." It can also refer to another 14-word slogan: "Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth."
Don't let this happen to you! Always stick with 17 when you need a random, funny number!

Evil Nancy is terrifying
At /r/EbolaHoax, moderator and sole contributor HamsterNamedFunny has been frantically aggregating links to every conspiracy article and YouTube video he can find. It's the internet equivalent of a room filled with interconnected webs of string: Every colorful, crazy-frayed strand he pins to the wall helps expose the "EboLIE" scare for the fraud it is. Nothing gets past this guy, except the concept of satire.
While researching this one, I learned about the Georgia Guidestones, a bizarre stone monument with some guidelines for a post-apocalyptic society. Here's a WIRED article about it from a few years ago. It sounds cool, like something out of a danged Zelda game or something.

I think the old Simpsons Butterfinger commercials are fascinating... lots of cartoony action and zippy camera movement that you don't see in the series. I'm particularly impressed by a shot that starts from Bart's POV inside the box of ice cream bars, then somehow twsts around above Apu in like 4 frames. Here's a couple gifs:
