Let's try out the new format. Rules are the same as always: 1) Answers embedded in the link at the end of each question 2) Any man gets caught cheating spends a night in the box

HAMSTERDAM IS MADE OF METAL

Not, not music metal - though the new Mastodon album is now streaming on iTunes - but the tangible metal. Here is a leaked photo of new Shredder, who kind of looks like a spawn of Edward Scissorhands and Gregor Clegane.

WORLD CUP ACTION STARTS TODAY WITH BRAZIL V CROATIA @ 3PM GOD'S TIME. Of course you don't think the Brazilian World Cup spending and construction and waste and corruption is something new. But if you did, may I present the Viaduct Petrobas. A thousand feet of finished freeway in the middle of nowhere, with no access other than goat trails to a rickety wooden staircase. It's actually somewhat of a tourist attraction now. Yay Brazil! Via

You have $15, choose your stadium food

Having been done with Basketball and Wrestling, I figured BHGP needed one for stadium food. Same rules as always: You have $15 to spend on food at a sporting event. What do you choose to eat?

HAMSTERDAM GOES DRAMATIC

This was already posted in a previous Hamsterdam (h/t to ... somebody?), but I needed to make sure more people see it: Dumb & Dumber recut into the trailer for a dark drama: http://www.avclub.com/article/dumb-and-dumber-very-easily-recut-epic-drama-204039?

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING PEOPLE INTO SPACE

Sorry, that's a lie. Elon Musk, and SpaceX, though, ARE going to send people to space in their newly unveiled Dragon V2. The Verge has more. Musk just continues his effort to become a real life Tony Stark.

That picture is the Gas Sack, the crowning achievement product of Cedar Rapids firm Flat-D Innovations (name is shorthand for Flatulence Deodorizer). If the Gas Sack intrigues you, they carry an entire line of activated-charcoal clothing wear for use throughout your day. Welcome to the future, Americans. Brought to you by an Iowan!

(via) Here's your Hamsterdam off-topic thread for today and tomorrow. There's a smattering of playoff hockey and basketball tonight and tomorrow, as well as the usual spate of baseball games. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM DOESN'T NEED A NEW SHIRT

(h/t to commenter Dip-Shit). Does that outfit from this schoolteacher's 2012 yearbook photo look like it could be straight out of the 70s? Well, it is. And he can prove it. Because he has worn the exact same outfit for every shcool picture day for FORTY YEARS. The link below has all 40 pictures (unfortunately in slideshow format, but there's also a video). It's worth your time just to be amazed at the dedication and humor. Or if not intentional humor, the pure awesomeness. LINK

HAMSTERDAM IS TERRIFYING CHILDREN

McDonalds unveiled their new mascot yesterday, and it's nearly as terrifying as Pierre the Pelican used to be. Watching major corporations fail at marketing sure is becoming the standard. (Looking at you, DTV wireless ads)
