Hmmm? Is a sword in a bush equal to two in the face?

Abandoned

Most of us have experienced the relentless expansion and development in today's growing world, which is why it's sometimes hard to believe all the man-made items and places that have been left behind for nature to ever-so-gradually reclaim. Crawl through the interesting collection of such things at Artificial Owl.

Just a few things to keep you occupied, if you're not out shopping or eating leftovers.

Friday Game

Butch Mushroom
It's a simple, timed game with an, uh, interesting premise: a bug-eating mushroom that you control. Try to eat as many bugs as possible to extend the timer and gain bonuses. It's Butch Mushroom.

Uh, Thanks, I Guess

We've all been there: You get an awful item as a gift, open it in front of the person who gave it to you, and then pretend to really like it. All the while, the thought that's going through your head is, "Why Did You Buy Me That?"

Shaun the Sheep
This is a sheep physics puzzle game. Yes, you read that correctly. You have three sheep (with different abilities) to get to the barn, and each level adds some new trick. Sure, there are only 15 easy levels, but Shirley, Shaun, and Timmy are pretty funny. Don't get fleeced by Shaun the Sheep.

Wooden Gears

I linked to the video of Clayton's interesting wooden gears, but on his site, you can get the plans to recreate all sorts of wood-geared clocks and gadgets. Check out his Wooden Gear Clock Plans.

Here is another reason to never date a clown.

Curses, Corrected Again!

Texting on a touchscreen smartphone can lead to a lot of typos. Thankfully, most have an autocorrect function that attempts to make a best guess of what you're trying to say. But often the autocorrect's best intentions go strangely awry, with hilarious results, which are being preserved at Damn You, Autocorrect.

Also immortalized at GraphJam.

Omnom Forest
This is a classic "Root Beer Tapper" kind of game, where you have to click on the creatures to either have them eat falling fruit or avoid falling acorns. You start with one, then two, then three... How long can you keep the creatures in Omnom Forest happy?

Computers in the Movies

Lots of movies we watch have people using computers. Sometimes moviemakers get them right, and sometimes get them wrong. Either way, it can be interesting. Here's a site that has a pretty exhaustive capture of movie screens showing a slice of the interface used by its computer(s). It's all stored in the memory banks of Access Main Computer File.

Bob wondered if Sue lied to him when he asked her,
"Does this make my gut look big?"

Keyboard Roots

If your computer's keyboard isn't old-school enough for you, now you can use an actual typewriter as a USB keyboard. "Hunt and peck" takes on its original meaning when you're Smith-Corona-ing your Facebook updates. You can order the plans and DIY, ship your typewriter to the inventor and have him convert it for you, or buy one of the already-converted ones on his etsy site. The details can be found at USB Typewriter.

Corporate Climber
An old-school platformer that's different on each level. How high does it go? I'm not sure, since I haven't been able to finish it yet, but it sure is a lot of fun working your way up the ladder as a Corporate Climber.

Halloween Thriller

I know it's after Halloween, but this is too cool not to share. The same guy that's done some amazing Christmas light shows set to music did an awesome Halloween display set to Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Films Clipped

A bizarre little web site that takes just a small portion of a scene from a movie, turning it into a weird little repeating moment, along with the line from round-about the same place. It's hard to describe, and even harder to turn away from If We Don't, Remember Me.
