The Jimbo List is all about the spread of good ideas and the whole TED philosophy, but there are some combinations of people and ideas that perhaps shouldn’t be encouraged. With that in mind, here are some TED Talks to avoid at all costs.

Celebrity Breakfast Cereals

Posted on

You’ll be happy to know the staff here at The Jimbo List has come up with a great way to combine America’s love affair with cereal and its fixation on famous people: celebrity themed breakfast food! This wouldn’t be a mere endorsement. It would involve celebrities in the look, taste and texture of the product. Of course, it also would need a catchy name.

What Felix Baumgartner Thought About During His Jump

Posted on

As Felix Baumgartner showed the world this weekend, 24 miles is a long way to fall. Here are some of the things that crossed his mind as he hurtled back down to Earth.

I SHOULD HAVE HIT THE MEN’S ROOM ONE MORE TIME

SERIOUSLY, I’M FALLING FASTER THAN MY FACEBOOK STOCK

OH!MY!GOD!

EDDIE MONEY SURE DIDN’T AGE WELL, DID HE?

NEXT TIME, GET THE “RELAXED FIT” SPACE SUIT

WOWWOWWOWWOWWOWWOWWOWWOWWOW

GREAT, I’VE GOT THAT “GANGNAM STYLE” SONG STUCK IN MY HEAD

DID I REMEMBER TO TIVO CHARLES OSGOOD?

THOSE ANTS DOWN THERE BETTER NOT BE ANTS, OR I’M IN BIG TROUBLE

Congratulations, Mr. Baumgartner.

What If Someone Else Walked On The Moon First?

Posted on

Neil Armstrong’s recent passing gives us occasion to honor a great American hero. It also prompts us to reflect on his glorious moon walk and speculate as to what others might have said if they’d been in his space boots.

YODA: “Giant leap for mankind, it is.”

DR. SEUSS: “One foot, two foot, here’s the first moon foot.”

SIRI: “I found 4 craters and the Sea of Tranquility a little ways from you.”

SARAH PALIN: “I can see Russia!”

AL GORE: “I invented NASA, you know.”

SNOOP LION: “One small fo shizzle in my capsizzle.”

WEREWOLF: “Awwwooooo!”

MICHAEL JACKSON: “Moon walk? This gives me an idea…”

BROOKLYN HIPSTER: “Totes historic!”

SNOOKI: “OMG! These f*!?$& shoes are the worst.”

RATSO RIZZO: “Hey – I’m walkin’ here!”

Bless you, Neil Armstrong.

7 Celebrity Scandals Our Grandparents Would Never Understand

Posted on

 

 

The recent misfortunes of U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) and his Twitter account are hardly the first time a public figure has had to explain away a potentially embarrassing situation. But it does represent a relatively recent phenomenon: activities involving the use of technology that would leave our elders wondering where they went wrong. And asking what a DVR is.

Pulling A Weiner – Using your Twitter account (or allowing a hacker) to send out a digital photo of your legislative package. See also: Favre-ing

Going Lohan – Texting in court after being caught “borrowing” items you could have paid for with the millions you earn each year. Related: Going Winona

The Full Britney – Stepping out of a limousine in a short skirt, in front of a phalanx of photographers, with no cover page for your legislative package.

Texting While Tiger – Trashing a world class career by cheating on your wife with multiple women and leaving a digital trail as long as the fairways on the back nine at Pebble Beach.

Being Balloon Boy – Pretending to accidentally launch your 6-year-old son into the atmosphere in a balloon, just to get on TV.

Setting Foot in Rex-Ville – Completely distracting your NFL team’s focus when videos pop up on the web showing you calling a blitz against a woman’s foot.

Lights! Camera! Kendra! (And Kim, Pamela, Paris, etc.) – Starring in a sex tape and later being shocked when it surfaces on the Internet.
