Dan’s Top5 Internet Finds (8/12)

Has it already been a week since my first Top5 finds? Yes, it has.  You know what that means…..it’s seven days later.  Like many of you, I tend to start doing something productive on the computer and a few clicks later, wonder how the hell I ended up watching midget porn wrestling. That’s how I usually find the little gems I like to share here with you. Here’s my Top5 internet finds from this past week.  Enjoy!

 

1. HERO: OLEG TINKOV

WHAT WILL HE ‘TINKOV’ NEXT? (Yes, I am a comedic genius.)

Russian man outwits bank with hand-written credit contract

“A Russian man who decided to write his own small print in a credit card contract has had his changes upheld in court.”

Disappointed by the terms of the unsolicited offer for a credit card from Tinkoff Credit Systems in 2008, a  42-year-old Dmitry Agarkov from the city of Voronezh decided to hand write his own credits terms.

The trick was that Agarkov simply scanned the bank’s document and ‘amended’ the small print with his own terms.

He opted for a 0% interest rate and no fees, adding that the customer “is not obliged to pay any fees and charges imposed by bank tariffs.” The bank, however, didn’t read ‘the amendments’, as it signed and certified the document, as well as sent the man a credit card. Under the agreement, the bank OK’d providing unlimited credit to Agarkov, according to his lawyer Dmitry Mikhalevich talking to Kommersant daily. ” (story and photo from rt.com)

2. A GREAT GIFT FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, BABYSITTERS, AND/OR KIDNAPPERS

Remember, this is for ages five and up.  The younger ones we just use good ‘ol duct tape.

3. I NEVER WANTED TO BE A MUSICIAN UNTIL NOW 

Take a gander at some of the best band (and album) photos ever.  Which is your favorite? I’m partial to #19…because I’ve actually done this before.

19. Tozovac

4. 100 YEARS LATER….WE ARE NOT EVOLVING

Many people (conspiracy-types) believe that the US government is purposely dumbing down society.  I think they might be right. When I was in the eighth grade I was learning about balloons and what colors they could be.   What has happened to the US education system?

5. LET’S END ON A POSITIVE NOTE

While we may not be getting smarter, we sure as hell are getting better at screwing around with people. This guy asked for online help to have the sun photoshopped to be between his fingers. Thank you assholes, for making me smile.

The Best Of "Can Someone Photoshop The Sun Between My Fingers?"

Well done, trolls of the internet.  Well done.

Dan Wiberg
Dan Wiberg lives in South Korea where he is a university "professor" and on and off stand up comic. He grew up enjoying the beautiful beaches of Tampa Bay, Florida. After graduating with a degree in anthropology (this degree legally allows him to tell racist jokes), he came across an internet ad to teach in Asian in 2009. He's been in Korea ever since. He started doing stand-up and his biggest credits to date are opening for Tom Rhodes and doing a three day comedy tour throughout Korea with his group of comedy pals (the Waygoonies). Dan says stuff on Twitter sometimes @DanWiberg.
