MooniniteWe know that Boston is made up of many of the intellectual set, so we really wonder how a few little Mooninites managed to scare them enough to trigger a bomb scare that had authorities closing down two bridges and part of the Charles River yesterday. Top officials, including Mayor Thomas Menini, Govenor Deval Patrick, and Police Commisioner Ed Davis were concerned enough to offer statements to the press.

The electronic light boards were part of a promotional scheme for one of our fave shows, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” on Adult Swim, and had also been set up in LA, NYC, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philly. Peter Berdovski, who placed the signs, actually turned himself in when The Cartoon Network realized what was going on. Our query is why they didn’t worry when the signs were going up. If a Mooninite like Ignignokt could frighten them that much, just image what damage Meatwad could have done.

FlexiSnakeTake that, Drano. Research tells us that the average human loses up to 100 hairs per day. Much of that literally goes down the drain. With the newly devised patent pending FlexiSnake, you can retrieve it and some of the other mucky stuff down there that you previously had to use a drain cleaner, conventional snake, or plumber to accomplish. What the company claims “snags drain hair like magic,” is in fact a 26-inch tube with a piece of velcro attached. With apologies to Andru, the FlexiSnake is a bargain online for the rest of us, with its price of only $2.95.

Carpenter BotMove over, Bob The Builder. Dr. Behrokh Khoshneivis is leading a team at USC to create a “home-bot” that can build your next house with no help from humans. The bots only utilize gypsum and concrete to spray layers which form floors, walls, and roofs. The first prototype is slated to erect a 2-story home in only 24 hours this April. At a cost of $1.5 million, Khoshneivis claims it will increase production and drop prices to a fifth of what they are now. Imagine the ramifications of putting this puppy to work in New Orleans.
