There are some things where you have to wonder, "Am I being duped? This does not seem possible." These guys throwing basketballs into baskets from obscene distances is one of those things. 

Who knew people cared about setting the world record for largest organized zombie walk? Well, apparently Mexico City cares enough to gather nearly 10,000 people, which, when the zombie count is finalized, will beat the New Jersey Zombie Walk's 2010 record of 4,093 zombies. [via Paste]

I know it's still a little early for Christmas music, but Sufjan Stevens released another video for a song off of his upcoming Christmas album, this one title "Silver & Gold." [via Paste]

For Portlandia fans, the comedic duo just released a teaser clip of a new sketch in anticipation of the third season! [via Paste]

Ever wish there was a way to tag your car (or a friend's) really dirty car without getting yourself all dirty in the process? Enter Grime Writer. The Grime Writer is a chunky marker pen that gets filled with soapy water (or other cleaning solution) and is used to tag dirty surfaces. [via Laughing Squid]

A Magic School Bus psuedo movie trailer. Nuff said.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
