Happy Halloween version!

The "Twins" reboot promises to be much more believable than the original.

At What Price, Fashion?


Pity today's poor fashion models and photographers, since everything's already been done to death. How is a photog supposed to make his subject look unique? Apparently by trying something new, something different, or something downright WTF-y. Check out these fashion don'ts at Awkward Poses.

It's All Relative

Things Could Be Worse
Sometimes, it's comforting to know that others have it worse off than you. Or, in this case, just knowing that, no matter how bad it may seem, Things Could Be Worse.

The Writing's on the Wall

Blackboards in Porn
Apparently, a common trope in pornographic movies is the classroom, where more than one type of learning occurs. But the focus here is a set piece, the normally-overlooked blackboard. This prop attempts to legitimize the setting, often providing teaching material. But how effective is the information it's trying to convey? Thankfully, someone's around to deconstruct the Blackboards in Porn.

Liquid Measure 2
This is a puzzle construction game, where you use the moveable pieces to complete the fluid flow. Since there's no tutorial (since this is a level pack), there's some trial and error involved, but it's still fun to solve Liquid Measure 2 Dark Fluid.

Talking to the Computer


Unless you live under a rock, you know that the new iPhone 4S came out last week. One of its new features is a voice-recognition system named Siri. And geeks being what they are, have asked Siri all sorts of things that perhaps the Apple developers never imagined (and some I'm sure they did). You can see the results at Shit That Siri Says.

Factory Balls 4
I don't seem to have ever linked to the Factory Balls games, but they're puzzle games where you recreate the ball shown on the box. Can you make it through all 30 levels of Factory Balls 4?

Pictures With Hanks

Tom Hanks in a Wax Museum
While they may not always have the most life-like representation, lots of wax museums have Tom Hanks. People go to these museums and have their picture taken with the waxy impersonator. The internet being what it is, you get these pictures collected at Tom Hanks in a Wax Museum.

Crush Thine Enemies
One of the first versions of this type of game was the polar bear batting a fish with a penguin, and you had to try to get the fish as far as possible. In this game you fire a big spike-studded ball out of a cannon, and gain distance for each item you hit with it. You also earn money, based on how good your "run" is, to buy upgrades, which makes it even more fun to Crush Thine Enemies.

The Great American Procrastination

My Unfinished Novels
The story of the great American novel is as old as America itself. There are a lot of authors who start a novel and, for whatever reason, never finish. Exploring why these works were abandoned is the whole point of My Unfinished Novels.

Geeks Going Outside

Nerdy Day Trips
The geek stereotype is one of a pasty-skinned guy in his mom's basement on the computer playing video games. But as more and more geeks break the mold, they're looking for something to do outside of the house. And, doing what geeks do best, they're crowdsourcing destinations for each other at Nerdy Day Trips. It's a Google maps interface, so zoom/scroll to your current location.
