The End of History and the Last Beer

The End of History from BrewDog on Vimeo.

I would give up quite a lot to work at BrewDog. BrewDog has actually been warring with the German brewery Schorschbrau to come up with the world's strongest beer. Unless Schorschbrau can come up with a way to make a stronger beer, this may indeed be the end of the road for ridiculously strong beers. The Germans may love David Hasselhoff, but they're also pretty crafty, so don't count them out yet.

Yes, each bottle of the End of History actually does come encased in a taxidermied varmint, so there's that. But since it costs $765 a bottle, I doubt that stoats will end up on the endangered species list. Plus, the run is limited to 12 bottles and all the critters were roadkill.

For the political philosophers out there hoping for a Fukuyama tidbit other than the reference in the video, your humble blogger is a distant cousin by marriage. Seriously. On my Dad's side.

Soviet-era Polish film posters

"The image is one of many hundreds that were created in Poland during the country's Communist era, when film distributors were unable to get hold of original publicity material from Hollywood."

Lesbians Who Look Like Bieber

Also known as Biebians.

I always thought the Hilton was a hooker friendly hotel...

I thought I would share this gem from a yelp review of a hotel near my home:

I am a traveling ESCORTcompanion i travel to many cities around the US for business and needed a nice hotel at a reasonable price to stay at and found the burnsley hotel on a hotel website and liked the pictures plus the fact that it was an older boutique style hotel with a great rate of $150 a night and reviews and thought why not get a room for a week.Every thing was fine until i set up an appointment with a client and he was stopped on his way up to the room and asked what room he was going to,for his id and to sign in.I can appreciate the fact the hotel has security I am glad the hotel has security for the safety of it's hotel guests but as long as nobody is making any trouble for the hotel WHY stop a visitor to the hotel on his way to visit a hotel guest? As you see the burnsley has different kinds of people staying at it's hotel.I have stayed at many nice hotels and never experienced this kind of problem as i needed a nice relaxing place to host a discreet location for my clients(They come to me) and being stopped by the front desk staff really made my clients feel uncomfortable as they are business men looking for a nice "Discreet Encounter" not looking to be stopped walking through a hotel lobby as this really made my business trip to denver a total mess and inconvenience.Escorts i do not recommend this as a hotel choice for those of you needing a nice place to entertain your clients while visiting from outta town Stick to the more disreet hotels such as the hilton,embassy suits and hyatt ect i have stayed at those hotels many times and never once had any kind of problem as the one my client and my self experienced at the burnsley.I will say i actually liked the hotel better than the top chain hotels as far as it's boutique style i found it to be a cute cozy little hotel.The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.They also have an excellen restaurant with great food and a lounge that plays live jazz music on different nights of the week.I am a fan of jazz.This hotel would have been a #1 choice for me everytime i visit denver but not now.i also would of gave a 5star if not for all that...What more can i say it's a lovely hotel.

God bless those Anonymous 4chan kids

"Now those Internet wisenheimers over at 4chan have a new solution. If you can't get Bieber off the Internet, send him to North Korea! It seems those zany pranksters up and bombed the " Justin Bieber My World" contest, making North Korea ahead by a furlong in the singer's Web vote to choose which country he'll take his tour to next.

"Last week, the 4chan website's puckish /b/ message board members posted invites and even a detailed mission plan to make this prank a reality. "North Korea" quickly soared to the head of the pack late last week, as /b/ boarders bombed the Bieber site with votes. North Korea stands at 602,827 votes at the time of this post. By comparison, Israel is second, with 596,257 votes."

Related to Scott Stapp by Chance?

Thomas Kinkade, the self-described "Painter of Light," was arrested Friday night outside of Carmel on suspicion of drunk driving.... Kinkade appears to have a dark side. He has been sued by former gallery owners who say they lost everything trying to sell his prints in their now-defunct stores. And a pair of stories published in the Los Angeles Times in 2006 recount incidents in which an allegedly drunk Kinkade heckled illusionists Siegfried and Roy in Las Vegas; cursed a former employee's wife who came to his aid when he fell off a barstool; and palmed a startled woman's breast at a signing party in Indiana.
In the late 1990s, he is reported to have urinated on a Winnie the Pooh figure at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. "This one's for you, Walt," he is reported to have said.
Kinkade's arrest occurred less than two weeks after one of his companies filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The petition by Kinkade's production company, Pacific Metro of Morgan Hill, Calif., was filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in San Jose.
