Photographic proof that Super Bowl QBs get the best tail, vintage footage of the Jackass crew acting like jackasses, and why your Google searches could help land you in's the Mantenna!

Super Bowl Quarterbacks Land Great Tail

If you're an NFL quarterback who has played in the Super Bowl, you can pretty much have any woman you want for the rest of your life. The good folks at Manofest have collated a list of the top 10 hottest Super Bowl Quarterback WAGs of all time. Included on the list are the significant others of Brett Favre, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. [Manofest]

Jackass-Type Stunts before Jackass Came Out

Crazy dudes have been performing whacked out stunts long before Jackass premiered on MTV in 2000. Uncoached has compiled a list of 7 outrageous stunts performed way before Jackass even hit the airwaves. See Steve O and Bam Margera in material they created before they were famous. Also see some insane treadmill spills, shopping trolley rides and a guy spinning inside a clothes dryer. [Uncoached]

Veronica Mars Movie Looking Good

Fans of the show Veronica Mars were none too happy when the show got cancelled, but now they have something to live for again: Veronica Mars: The Movie. Rob Thomas, the creator of the show, has been leaking little tidbits of information about the possible movie, indicating that it would not necessarily begin with her as an FBI agent. Rather, it would start right at the end of her college years before her graduation. Where she goes from there is anyone’s guess. Fans of the show will just be happy that she’s going anywhere at all.

Four Stabbed At After-Party For Biggie’s Notorious

Police reported that four men were stabbed at a New York City nightclub advertising an after-party for the premiere of the Biggie Smalls biotic Notorious. On Saturday the 17th, a 21-year-old victim stabbed numerous times was in critical condition at Brookdale Hospital. Three others were stable. The Djumbala club is in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn. Police did not immediately release further information. [Yahoo! News]

Man Convicted on Google Search History

A man in San Francisco, Lee Harbert, ran over some other dude in his Jaguar.  He told police, later, that he didn’t stop because he thought he’d hit a deer.  However, when the police searched his home computer, they found Google search terms like “auto glass reporting requirements to law enforcement,” and “hit-and-run.”  A little suspicious to say the least and evidence worthy of a conviction to say the most. Harbert is currently serving a 3 year sentence in a correctional facility. [Gizmodo]

Funeral Parlors Begin Webcasting

Schoedinger Funeral Service in Columbus, Ohio is now offering a webcast service for all the funerals they perform.  Creepy? A bit. Convenient? A lot. And, really, we suppose it’s not that far beyond what we already have.  Funeral DVDs are certainly pervasive enough.  And airline prices these days are often prohibitive. That being said, Schoedinger charges $300 for their webcast. [Wired News]

Chrysler Gets Buddy-Buddy with Fiat


News comes today that Chrysler and Fiat have announced a “global strategic alliance” in which gives both companies access to each other’s cars and parts bins. This is great news for Chrysler, not only because it saves them from the looming specter of bankruptcy, but also because they’ve suddenly acquired a ton of new, fuel-efficient, European-styled small cars, SUVs and hatchbacks which simply require a Penstar logo to sell as Chrysler’s own.
