  • In order to stay alive, there are very few requirements. Food, water, and shelter are the big three. If you are speaking on a species level, sex goes on the list, too. Most animals are content taking whatever they can get, but the human race has gotten pretty darn good at survival, so we added one more thing to the list of necessities. Variety. The varieties of shelter, drink, and kink are all valid article fodder, but today I'm focusing on food, and the evidence that we are looking WAY too hard for the next thing to eat.

  • I am prone to boredom. Actually, that's not true. I am almost never bored, because any time I get a spare moment, I find myself occupied learning new and exciting things. The problem is, in many situations the resources available to me do not lend themselves to useful scientific inquiry. Times such as these tend to produce information of no use to anyone. But, hey, this is the internet. Why does it exist if not to distribute useless information? Here are a few choice discoveries.

  • It is time once again for an arbitrary, unresearched list, the lifeblood of the Internet. Since people are still up in arms about the BP oil LEAK, I figured it was time to set the record straight. Is it a major disaster, no doubt, but the worst? I think there is a fair amount of competition. Earth has a long history, after all. So let's just look at the BrainLazy approved list of worst black eyes ever given to mother earth. Let's just say that most people leave a few things off...

  • There is one constant shared by all successful entertainment sites. Numbered Lists. I don't know why, but you just can't make it on the Internet without one. We've done one or two in the past, but now that things are beginning to roll forward for us, it is time to do a few more. Today's countdown is the top 10 best video game songs of all time, as voted by the Brain Trust. Far from simple bloops and bleeps, these songs are the soundtrack to our youth.

  • BrainLazy has existed for a while, but it wasn't until PAX East this year that we actually grew a beard and started pumping out consistent material. As part of that push, we got set up with Google Analytics to see if we could quantify our swift and steady decent into irrelevancy following our convention coverage. While we haven?t quite shriveled up and blown away as completely as I'd expected, I sure learned a lot of wacky stuff from Google's data. From constructive ignorance to friendly Australians, let's do it top 10 style.

  • Well, my mind has been wandering again. As always, if you give me a minute to myself, I'll come up with a question that would either get me slapped in the face or slapped in a straight jacket if I asked it. Fortunately the Internet is here to help me address my questions to a massive population of people quickly. Before the world wide web the only way to do that was to scream your questions in a crowded bus station, and you would be surprised how unhelpful the bus-going public can be.

  • Around a week ago, we made our way into this grand and glorious year, 2010! Sure, New Year's is always a great time of year, but this one is super extra special. Why? Loads of reasons! And since I never did one, and evidently they are the only thing that people actually email to each other on the internet, I figure it is about time I did a top ten list. So here it is.
