Everything Grows Big In Hawaii

A place to be entertained. Videos, jokes, games, and more.

At the old Disney Hyperion Studio, the screening room where animators would show animated scenes to Walt for his approval was small, with no ventilation or AC. Not only was it hot, but the animators were nervously awaiting Walt's reaction to their work. Thus, the room became known as the Sweatbox. Even after the Studio moved to Burbank and elegant screening rooms were offered to the staff, the moniker remained.

Now SGT has a sweatbox of our own. This is the place to find and post all entertaining topics such as video links, jokes, games, and the like. A general rule of thumb is that if the thread is meant to be informative (interesting news stories for example), or a topic for discussion (like setting up a park meet) then it should go in the Break Room, but if the intent is to entertain the masses then it's home is The Sweatbox. I'm sure there will be grey areas at times, so if you have doubt as to where a new thread should go, just use your best judgement and the SGT Staff will be glad to move it later if you guessed wrong.

Stuff of nightmares: Big Island man caught foot-long centipede

A centipede that's more than 1 foot long is on display at a Big Island resident's home. The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported Sunday that retired taxidermist Clayton Cambra spotted the 14.5-inch insect in the woods behind his home last month and — against his better judgment — decided to capture it with a bucket. Cambra says the venomous arthropod stood up in the bucket "like a cobra," escaping multiple times before he was able to put it in a plastic bag and then in his freezer.

After it died, Cambra says he thawed the insect and pinned it to a piece of Styrofoam board. He then injected it with formaldehyde to be preserved. Dan Rubinoff, an entomologist and director of the University of Hawaii Insect Museum, said he thinks the bug is a Vietnamese centipede.

One fun fact: Cambra told Hawaii News Now he actually hates centipedes. His first inclination was to chop it up into pieces with a shovel.

Don't be fooled by appearances. In Hawaii, some of the most powerful people look like bums and stuntmen.
