…You can rally in a rental?

Rental Car Rally

Always dreamed of driving in a rally, but never had the car or the finances to do it?

Then check out the Rental Car Rally, a 36-hour race from NYC to Montreal that encourages you to rent a car, grab a friend, pay just $150 per team, and be on your way to automotive action and adventure.

All of the standard rally rules still apply (don’t speed, don’t kill pedestrians, etc.) but the financial burden is definitely lessened to let everyone get a shot at the action.

If you’re interested, check out the site for more information (and be sure to read the rules, since they were obviously written by someone with enough of a sense of humor to put on a rally made of rental cars).

…Nike’s Mercurial Vapor SLs are amazing?

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL

Though I couldn’t find much in the way of official information, it doesn’t take a press release to know that these shoes are special.

Called the Nike Mercurial Vapor SL, they are made of nearly 100% carbon fiber, and weigh just 6.7 ounces.

It took Nike three years to design and produce the shoe, and features include an outsole plate made from seven layers of carbon composite material interwoven with TPU and polyurethane, a molded carbon fiber upper, and an internal carbon fiber chassis for “instant acceleration”.

Plus, if Cristiano Ronaldo approves them, then who are you to say otherwise?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Blank Is Like Blank?

Blank Is Like Blank

Blank is Like Blank is a simple site that provides the occasional analogy to live by.

With quips like:

    “Facebook is like a gossipy friend with no interesting information”,
    “Using Helvetica is like owning a Mac: It looks so cool that you never bother to stop and think if you really need to”, and
    “Starbucks is like that crazy ex-girlfriend you still get together with: You hate yourself for going back, but the familiarity makes it convenient, and until you find something better, it’s all you’ve got”,

Justin Feinstein is firmly establishing himself as the king of the one liner.

…Internet forums need better behavior?

In the AOL era, forums and chat rooms were the place to be.

However, as Facebook and MySpace began sucking up everyone’s extra time, forums and chat rooms were suddenly slotted under poking and biting chumps on the Internet order of importance scale.

Fortunately, the forum has remained a vital source of information for some, and because of this, a set of laws and rules has slowly developed to make them more enjoyable.

Unfortunately, not everyone follows these rules, and internet anonymity means that there’s always someone who wants to ruin everyone else’s good time. If that someone happens to be you, then be sure to watch the following video for a quick lesson on How To Behave On An Internet Forum.

Pwned.

And from the same guy, and equally funny video titled “How To Ruin Xbox Live For Everyone Else”:
