Feed Dump: The Biggest, Blackest Dump

The Biggest, Blackest Dump

There's a new black material and Kathleen and Ash are EXCITED. Also a drunk mayor and a crazy lady from Canada.

I would be excited for a new black material too.... But too many super heroes wear it.... In which case I think I'm going to have to find the most Orange of Oranges.... Oh wait.... That's Donald Trump.... Okay anything but Black or Orange....

For those wondering what vantablack looks like, there's this article from Extreme Tech, complete with video. It is indeed very black. Unfortunately, the structure of it (a bunch of stacked nanotubes) is such that making fabric out of it seems difficult- the only solution is to build robot suits, cover them with vantablack, and have the most underwhelming robot fights this side of Medabots.

Also, way to have Kathleen steal one of the few hats big enough for Graham. He'll have to go back to trying to put tiny little cloth socks on his mighty melon.

I think we all know what the real question here is:

How much more black could it be?

It took way too long for Kathleen to exclaim an expletive in frustration.

Not gonna lie, really curious about that Vantablack... kinda want clothing made out of it, if at all possible.

"black is beautiful"
So... with this new black you will be absolutely gorgeous!??

Wouldn't a ventablack ninjasuit be counterproductive? You know: you would seem like a pretty obvious dark void sticking out in the darkness around you. That being said: Yeah, I want one......

As for the mayor: Yeah, I'd reelect that guy.

Your monitor cannot display vantablack so looking at a picture or video of it is kind of pointless.

I'm glad the headline didn't take us in the direction I thought it would.

Was it Freia milk chocolate? That stuff's pretty yummy.

It could be slightly darker black...

LRR, you had a Canadian story with no intro; have you retired "LOL Canada"?

So now we can finally make Hotblack Desiato's ship and crash it into the sun at the climax of our next Disaster Area concert.

Kathleen needs to trade that iPhone/Android whatever in on a full sized pad (held out by someone else next to the camera) or maybe just invest in a real teleprompter.

With the new fabric, Kathleen will finally obtain the ultimate creepy doll.

OMG a Birdman reference!

Ha ha haaaa...

Cookies on dowels.

I can't load the video, on either mobile safari, or chrome. Ironically, all I see is a black rectangle.

EDIT

I could only watch it in SD, I did not become a pubclub member in 2011 to get this level of website shittyness. :(

Sorry, I'm just in a bad mood.

Critterbot:

It totally was

Environmental protection! Good!

Lots of bullshit! BAD!

Vanta black sounds like the coolest thing ever.

How do you get even cooler than black?
Become Darker Than Black!

Alright, I'll show myself out, no need to shove.

In all seriousness though, Vantablack clothing would probably be ridiculously uncomfortable to wear, due to all the heat being absorb, especially if you lived in a tropical country near the equator like me.

The mayor would not have need to get barred from each pub. If the city had a "barring order" you would not be able to go to other licenced venues if you get barred from one. *edit* Arrr, nuts! I should listen for longer.

Not sure if you could get a solid material made out of Vanta Black, there are always impurities in the manufacturing process and it does not come out that way. Even paint is not able to be totally the correct colour, they match it as good as possible.

Dethklok approves:

"Extremely Dark Grey" is my new black metal cover band.

I, honestly, would see DC trying to make a vantablack suit for Batman. Sounds like something Mr. Wayne would put money into.

BTW, Kath...I doubt that helmet is made of Norwegian Death Metal. Either it would be trying to kill you while wearing it or at the very least give you murderous thoughts.

Now this near light-absorbing material ... I would imagine it would be fairly rough fabric, however. So I would imagine if you were to wear a dress out of the stuff you might want to wear a slip. That being said I would be interested ... but if it feels and flows like sandpaper, I'll just stick with my regular black that can be contained to something nice like satin or chiffon.

The biggest blackest dump I've ever had was when I picked up a 6 pack of cheap Chianti from cosco and had them all with lasagna.

Robot-Jesus:
a 6 pack of cheap Chianti

The 6-pack I have in my mind is similar too beer packs, with the plastic binding the bottles together. Try red wine from a carton if you haven't already, it's...unique...

I don't think good Chianti comes in 6-packs :-) (yeah I know, half-crates...)

It's probably shocked into silence by the murderous thoughts already in Kathleen's head.
