Certified Brilliant – June Edition

Certified Brilliant is something I’m doing in which every day I post something that I found on the internet. To qualify, I must think that it is simply brilliant, epic, and/or incredible. Since I don’t want to have too many posts doing small things, I’ll edit this post every day, adding a new brilliant/epic/incredible thing. Every month I will make a new post and start updating it. My favorite brilliant/incredible/epic thing in each post will be starred.

Someone got the bright idea to ask me, the guy who had probably spent little more than a few minutes in his life thinking about the question. “Hey George, what about you? What’s your dream car?” he said.  I looked up. “The Batmobile”.  Then I got back to my book

Apart from repeated use of the word “freakin” (which actually isn’t a bad word,  just associated with them),  this is an incredible sounding technology which I hope is as good as it looks. Support them at
