Tattoo Translation

Lots of people get tattoos with Chinese characters thinking they know what those characters mean. But, as you might expect, that's not always the case. Luckily for those people, Tian is here to help at her blog, Hanzi Smatter.

Activity Corner

Friday Game

Another physics puzzle game, where you try to use a sticky thing to maneuver your little thing to the target. You'll get the idea and get sucked in, trying to solve them all. It's IQ Ball.

Sink Sign

Sink sign
If it wasn't a problem, there wouldn't be a sign.

Although the "balloon filling" option is a strange one.

Friday Game

This sick little physics game has you solving levels by shooting a crash test dummy at a target. You have unlimited shots, but the idea is to get the lowest score, measured by the Pain-o-meter. Try not to be too sadistic when you play Dummy Never Fails.

Quoting the World

People regularly flout the laws of grammar, and often do it publicly. And, of course, the internet is there to make sure we all know about it. The knowing can point and laugh at the Unnecessary Quotes.

Halo as an Atari 2600 game. Wow. It totally brought back memories of the "memorize the layout through trial and error as you die over and over" method of playing those old 8-bit games.

Open Books, closed minds
I know what it means, but what it says is hilarious.

Sign Wars

Post no bills!
I guess it's cheaper for the city to spray paint the stickers than try to remove them or replace the signs. It does make it tough to figure out how to park, though.

Disney Dream Land

Dreamland is an amusement park built in Nara, Japan in 1961, and modeled after Disneyland. It's abandoned now, and an "urban explorer" toured it and took a set of very interesting pictures capturing the former glory and current decay. Click on the picture on this link page to bring up a viewer.

Achievement Unlocked 2
Apparently I never linked to the original pointless yet addicting game Achievement Unlocked, whose sole purpose is to collect all its achievements. Well, guess what? There's a new version named, aptly, Achievement Unlocked 2!

Sticky Note

Sticky note on the wall

Apparently a prospective buyer/renter missed the Real Estate agent for this space. I like that it's just a scrap of a sticky note, rather than the whole thing.

Illustrated Dreams

The combination of a baby girl that's a deep sleeper and a mom with too much time and imagination on her hands results in some truly interesting pictures. It's all documented at Mila's Daydreams.

Taking Stock

Anyone who's done marketing material has had to, most likely, work with stock photos. They are usually generic and varied, allowing you to find something that will fill a specific need (and a hole in your copy). But not all of them are what you might consider quality. Some are downright dubious. And you'll find them on display at Awkward Stock Photos.
