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.)
“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.
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.
Well done, trolls of the internet. Well done.
