Thing With a Face of the Day: E.T. Found in Log
- -

Jake Dowd was getting ready to start a fire at his home in West Yorkshire when he happened to notice the face of E.T. staring at him from the base of a log. Lucky for us, he decided not to burn the extra terrestrial wood, and instead, shared it with the world on the internets! We wonder if the log let out a groaning, "Ooouuch..." as it was first set on the fire. Probably.

Meanwhile in Wisconsin of the Day: Cheese is Being Used to Thaw Icy Roads
- -

Wisconsin started an initiative to dump cheese brine (a waste product of the state's best known commodity) all over the frozen roads in the hopes that it would be effective in thawing the ice.

According to our friends at Circa, nearly 30% of the conventionally used dry salt is reportedly knocked off the roads by cars or simply bounces off when it's first dropped. The cheese brine helps the salt remain on the roads when applied. "You want to use provolone or mozzarella. Those have the best salt content. You have to do practically nothing to it," says Jeffrey Tews of the Milwaukee Public Works Department.

Wisconsin has always been known for its tasty dairy products, but now it can brag that even its streets are practically paved with cheese!

Weird Tube of the Day: Macaulay Culkin Eats a Slice of Pizza

The star of the 1990 holiday hit, Home Alone, has recently released this video of him eating a slice of delicious pizza. Though it seems very strange, the video is in homage of Andy Warhol's art piece where he simply eats a Burger King Whopper. Given the time of year, one might guess that Culkin's choice of food might also be in tribute to his famed character, Kevin McCallister, whose favorite food was plain cheese pizza.

Craigslist Weirdness of the Day: Troll on a Budget Looking for a Dwelling
- -

This 7'4' troll is looking for a new roommate in the D.C. area and he's hoping that it will be you. Like all trolls, this fiscally responsible guy really cares about making sure rent is covered and other bills are paid (he especially cares about tolls). But don't let this payment punctuality overshadow his wild side. This kickball-loving, happy hour hopping wild wonder likes to have a good time.

About Me
I am 328 lbs, 7 feet tall (7' 4" if you count horn height), yellow/greenish eyes and a heart-warming smile. Happy hour? Free networking event? Kickball?... I'm there. I love being fiscally responsible and making sure all debts are paid, tolls collected, and budgets balanced.

Apartment Requirements
Space is no issue! I am great in tight spaces so am happy to claim an unused den or living room corner. I am also quite prepared to sleep under your bed or chill out in the closet. NOTE: I suffer from frequent, violent night terrors brought on by fiscal stress. So let's keep our budget in check when we're bunking up, OK? We will need to convene weekly budget meetings to discuss utility bills -- keeping costs down keeps spirits up!

Outstanding Questions
What is our toll rate for pedestrians walking by outside? Is it strictly enforced or a catch-and-release program? Do you have a dedicated sheep/goat herder, or do you just hire freelancers?
