Robocop's Got Dancin' Feet!


Happy Friday, y'all!  Big plans for the weekend?  Maybe thinking about shakin' your groove thang like Robocop over there?  That lovely attitude en pointe pose (total guess there, never took ballet) was drawn by super talented artist Jesse Lonergan on his "Dancer a Day" blog.  I highly recommend taking the time to scroll through his tumblr.  (Dancer a Day h/t Pleated Jeans)

According to a recent poll, 78% of viewers are enjoying Ryan Seacrest's coverage of the Olympics.  Apparently, they're also fans of Bob Costas, too.  Two things: one, where do they find the people who take these polls, and two, don't encourage NBC, for goodness sake, or it'll be all Seacrest, all the time!  (Washington Post

I think my next pet shall be a hedgehog.  We can even drink Lactaid together!  (Colossal)

Wendy's in Japan has started selling lobster and caviar sandwiches for $16 a pop.  Interesting, but I think I'll just stick with the Baconator.  (laist)

Forget standing workstations, the Fitdesk is what you need if you want to fight obesity and other health risks associated with sitting for long periods of time (like while working).  (Geeks Are Sexy)

The victim of the Miami cannibal attack back in May has spoken out about his grisly ordeal.  Warning, if you're the squeamish type, you might want to skip this one.  (ABC News)

Definitely need a chaser after that last story.  How about 25 photos of a shirtless David Beckham?  (Glamour)

Jeremy Renner is everywhere right now, what with the success of "The Avengers" and his upcoming "The Bourne Legacy," but you probably didn't notice him in any of these projects back in the day.  Do yourself a favor and watch the video at the end - the man totally pulls off the "sexy sheriff" look.  (Uproxx)

The Atlantic has compiled a list of the best post-apocalyptic novels of all time.  I would've swapped Justin Cronin's "The Passage" for Max Brooks' "World War Z," but that's just me.  (The Atlantic)

Imagine for a second that you've just gotten engaged during a private moment in an empty park.  The next day, you discover that a photo of your special moment is blowing up all over the internet!  Would you be thrilled?  I think it's pretty amazing that this couple accidentally ended up with a gorgeous memento of their big night!  (Laughing Squid)

Here's a little schadenfreude to get you through the afternoon:  a video compilation of people walking into stuff.  Clearly, automatic doors are the bane of mankind.  

Time to kickoff your weekend dance party with talented beatboxer, Verbalase.  Happy weekend!
