Win/Win/Fail, Episode IV: The Ladies

Kick back and crack open a frosty Shasta Cola, it’s time for Win/Win/Fail! This week, it’s all about the ladies, starting with:

WIN: Rube Goldberg Marriage Proposal

Ever wondered how engineers propose? Here you go. Actual proposal starts at 7:00, but the best view of the machine in action starts at 3:10.

WIN: The Michael-Bayifier

The ladies like Michael Bay movies, right? No? Well, they like Shia LaBeouf, right? Huh. Well, anyway, the Michael Bayifier from the Wonder-Tonic blog (by meme machine Michael Lacher) is downright hilarious. Upload a photo or use one of the stock images, add some explosions and LaBeouf heads, and voila! Your photo is Bayified. Here’s mine:

FAIL: Creepy Ladies-Finder App

If ever there was a wake-up call for Foursquare users and the blatant security risks involved, it’s this app. (okay, I kind of like the name) is a web service that uses Foursquare to report how many women have checked in at a given location. Because if there’s anything the ladies love, it’s being cyber-stalked. In fact, when you reach your lady-heavy destination, try this one out: “Girl, I’ve got so many of your profile pics in my spank bank, if I deleted them there would be a lending crisis.”

  1. Deltus says:

    I dunno, if a marriage proposal completely catches the lady off-guard, you weren’t ready to ask it. It should, at the least, be half-expected.

  2. Ha! Take that, Alcatraz! Nicely done, Jarrett.

  3. Come to think of it, a good Rube Goldberg might make a good Node challenge…

  4. Zen says:

    Re: Proposal. Wow – while she is completely underwhelmed by the whole process with a “Sure” and a Shrug – did motivate me to have Goldberg Saturdays. Three beers and 26 steps to open one. Challenge accepted.

  5. Chrisman says:

    That was quite possibly the most anti-climatic, least warmly received proposal I have ever seen (on the Internet). Not giving ’em good odds here. I’ll be waiting for the Rube Goldberg divorce summons machine…

    Patent pending!

  6. Foursquare comes through again! Ladies…

  7. Chris is right, I think they may be in trouble. There’s really only two types of people in the world: the kind that love Rube Goldberg machines, and the kind who don’t . . . this is going to be harder than mixing religions.


  8. re: marriage proposal…maybe she’s thinking: “Duh I’ll marry you, we’ve been dating 4 years now—this is a sweet contraption!”

  9. Chris Hardwick says:

    re: Rube Goldberg vid- she’s not what you would call “overwhelmed” or “excited”. She kind of says yes, then asks about the machine. Hope these kids make it!
