Theo’s Things That You Maybe Missed

Another week, another check, another Friday, another update…like clockwork, muthaphukaz! Sorry, I guess I’m feelin’ a little silly today, maybe because it’s Super Bowl Weekend! If you didn’t already know, Vegas loves the Super Bowl. Over $93 million will be wagered on Sunday’s game…Curtis Jackson a.k.a. 50 Cent’s already bet $500k on the Giants (he also said he’d tweet a nude pic of himself, if they lose. Um, Go Giants!) & Birdman tweeted that he might bet $5 Mil(!) on the Pats, but we’ll believe it when we see it, Bryan! I’ll probably make a few “prop” bets (those are always fun), but I’m not sure if I’ll bet the actual game yet. We’ll see. Good luck to you, if you’re a Pats or Giants fan or if you made any bets. Here’s some things that you maybe missed this week…

  • Lego’s “crowd-sourcing” Cuusoo project has gone global! You can now submit & vote on the next Lego set to be released. Lego BTTF Set FTW. (FASTCOMPANY)
  • Instead of cash, Graffiti-artist David Choe asked for stock when he painted murals inside Facebook’s HQ’s & now he’s $200 Mil richer…TOUCHE! (ABCNEWS)
  • I hate wearing contact lenses, but if DARPA wants to give me a pair of Augmented-Reality Contacts, I wouldn’t mind. These are gonna be awesome! (POPSCI)
  • HBTV caught up with Fruition’s Chris Julian at the Agenda Tradeshow & asked him a few questions, including one about that infamous South Park episode, Fishsticks. (HYPEBEAST)
  • Students at Yale Univ. have discovered a fungus in the Amazon Rainforest that eats PLASTIC during their last annual trip. Watch your back, landfills. (COEXIST)
  • If you’re like me, then your office job is probably killing you. Don’t worry, there are a few things that you can do to try to counteract it. (LIFEHACKER)
  • Do you like sneakers & shoes? Yes. Do you like buying sneakers & shoes ON SALE? Of course! Well, you might want to visit this website, on the regular. (KICKSDEALS)
