This Week on the Information Super Highway: Dogs in Pantyhose & The Gates Condom Challenge

An example of the Chinese photo fad "Gou Gou Chuan Siwa," or "Dogs Wearing Pantyhose."


As some of you may know, having a job where you are stationed in front of a computer all day awards you with plenty of time to surf the internet. Every week, great content becomes popular for a couple of days, only to be quickly replaced by the next best thing – and people who only occasionally browse the web never see it.


But fear not, your good buddy Mike is looking out for you. Every week I’ll take a handful of that great/awful web junk and post it here for your amusement.












Last week “Hadokening” and “Vadering” were all the rage. This week, grab a broom and jump off the roof because we are “Pottering.




Another popular photo fad this week comes from China. There, people have been flooding the internet with pictures of “Gou Gou Chuan Siwa” or “Dogs Wearing Pantyhose.”




This makes me want to start a Twitter account. VICE made a documentary about the man behind the popular Twitter feed @DadBoner.




You can get internet advice on just about anything these days. If you want to go to extraordinary lengths to make your ex-girlfriend jealous using Facebook, then this guy has got you covered, diving deep into the female perceptions of your photos and comments.




Last week Bill Gates announced that he would grant $100,000 to anyone who could make a better condom (yes, you read that correctly). So far this has been the most interesting suggestion. I think I’ll pass.
