Video: The Cast of Silicon Valley Destroys Conan in Halo 5

Conan O’Brien’s gaming videos are always entertaining and this week’s video of him playing the upcoming Halo 5 against three cast members from HBO’s sitcom Silicon Valley is no exception. Halo 5, which is still months away from being released, has a terrific looking multiplayer mode that Conan played with Silicon Valley stars  Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller and Zach Woods. Given how Conan is typically a pretty crappy gamer, you won’t be surprised to learn that he spends most of the video getting slaughtered by his rivals. More →

America’s most hated clown billionaire is really running for president

The 2016 presidential campaign is about to become a clown show of epic proportions. Famed ignoramus Donald Trump, who was one of the prominent leaders of the so-called “Birther” movement that questioned whether Barack Obama was really born in the United States or in Kenya, is officially seeking the Republican Party’s nomination of president in 2016. While this is undoubtedly not good news for our republic, it is very good news for anyone who enjoys watching crazed carnival barkers howl about utter nonsense. Speaking personally, we think this news is fantastic. More →

Rich Californians whine that they’ll have to ration their water like all the other peasants

In an ideal world, you’d be allowed to use as much water as you needed to keep your massive lawns and golf courses looking nice and green. However, with California facing an unprecedented drought that’s showing no sign of ending, the state has had to place limits on the amount of water people can use. The Washington Post brings us word that this water rationing is really not going over well in wealthy Californian communities such as Rancho Santa Fe, whose residents consume five times more water per capita than the state average. As you’d expect, the people who are upset by the new rationing policy come across as equal parts clueless and entitled. More →

Nerve-wracking video shows what it’s like to sit on top of St. Louis’s Gateway Arch

Believe it or not, the iconic Gateway Arch in St. Louis does actually need to be cleaned off every now and then.
