Activity Corner

  • I posted about the cheeseburger in a can. Here's a guy that bought one and reviews it.

  • I also posted the germs video. Bladio pointed me to a NY Times article about the only scientific study every done based on a Seinfeld episode: double dipping. (My favorite line is, "The way I would put it is, before you have some dip at a party, look around and ask yourself, would I be willing to kiss everyone here? Because you don’t know who might be double dipping, and those who do are sharing their saliva with you.) Another longer-lasting link here.

  • Now that we're all thinking about our taxes, do you know where they're going? Check out the the interactive budget graph.

  • A collection of amazing photographs: only in Russia.

  • We're told we need to plan for every eventuality. When you live your life online, that includes preparing for your death online.

  • A look at the future, from the past. Here's a 1958 Disney movie that predicts innovation on The Magic Highway.

  • Wine for dogs? Yes, a product of Bark Vineyards.

  • You know what your next party needs? Ice cubes shaped like dentures. They're called Frozen Smiles.

  • The next meme on the lolparade is The Fail Blog.

  • Are they shoe pants, or pant shoes? You decide.

  • One man's take on men and women.

  • Ostensibly a bet between two London record producers to see who could get the worst song on the charts. Peaking at number 15 was 1997's No Way No Way.

  • THX for the eyes.

  • Participatory street art shows up in New York as a giant to do list.

  • Juan Casas is a talented artist, but his pictures are interesting because he uses only Bic ballpoint pens to draw them. Check out his gallery.

  • Find out what any acronym, abbreviation, or initialism stands for at

  • Ghost town buried in the sand.

  • The ultimate cubicle prank.

  • A product I can heartily endorse, the Tic Tac Toast.

  • It was recently Martin Luther King Day. In honor of the occasion, a university cafeteria offered probably the worst possible special dinner ever.

  • YouTube nature corner, in case you haven't seen them. Ant colony plaster cast and dolphins blowing bubble rings.
