Dept. of Carsafety

Wrecked and colored

Some people have to much time to spend. This guys (have to be guys) have spent valuable time collecting pics on strange customized or special wrecked cars.

Rather fun. But totally meaningless. Though it truly can be discussed how much meaning there is in the objects that the pics is showing.

A picture in the picture

Mark-Steffen Göwecke have done a funny thing - he have used a Polaroidcamera and used the former picture in the new picture - it have been over hundred pics and in some instance they are all in the same picture.

Look at the project at his site. This is a piece of art.

Inspired by spam

You can be inspired to do music of just anything. Brad have asked some people to do music inspired by the spam they got in their inbox.

And so they did. Download it on the

Outside the inbox-site. Don't expect masterpieces but hey, it's a fun idea.

Dept. of Diets-Of-My-Dream

Dream Diet?

A teen who suffered from fainting spells received medical advice that itself sounds like a prescription for blackouts: U.K. docs put Ashley Clarke on a steady diet of junk food, salt pills and beer. Clark, 18, suffers from Gower syndrome, a condition in which the heart slows down and the blood vessels dilate, causing a drop in blood pressure. Salty, fatty foods help raise Clarke's blood pressure, the doctors reason, and the alcohol is good for his heart. The bizarre regimen -- which Scotland's Daily Record dubbed the "Fatkins diet" -- turned Clarke's life around. "Eating junk food is probably every 18-year-old's dream," he said, "but for me it's more than that -- it's a passport to a normal life." Wired News: Furthermore

Hotwire your car

If you forget your carkey, don't forget to print this how-to on the topic "hotwiring your car". (Maxim Magazine UK).

The history is making me remember the time when a co-worker of me had had a break-in into his old Volvo and though there was too expensive to fix it he just hotwired it every time he used it. But since the cables did get to fall apart and the car to stop running he put a switch on the cables - a ordinary switch for lamps.

Dept. of New Innovations

The most important thing ever created

The new release of NaDa 0.5beta is a revolution in usability and computering. This program is small and even thought it's in it's early versions it's totally bugfree. And it's effiency in doing the job is 100%! This is how a application should be written.

What it does? Absolutely nothing. But it does it very good.

Dept. of TellingTruths

A little guessing

Time for a playround who have said this almost historical wise words?

"No, I'd feel used only if I didn't get something out of it. If a girl comes on strong and says, 'I really dig your body and I want to fuck the shit out of you,' I just decide whether or not I like her. If I do take her home, I try to make sure I get just as much out of it as she does. The word exploited therefore wouldn't apply."

"I get laid on purpose. I can't sleep before a competition and I'm up all night, anyway, so instead of staring at the ceiling I figure I might as well find somebody and fuck."

"When Manso asked whether he used "dope," XX replied, "Yes, grass and hash--no hard drugs. But the point is that I do what I feel like doing. I'm not on a health kick.".

Can you guess? Is it maybe a politician? No, that would to strange...

Well sorry: it's the new governor of California. One can wonder if this kind of article shouldn't kill anyone running for office except Conan The Terminator. We can all recognize the quote:

"I tested marijuana once but I never inhaled" - and that almost took Clinton of the office.

Setting up the private weather-cast

Some people have to much spare-time. This guy (a Swede) have built not one but five satellitestations for obtaining pictures from the weather-satellites that orbits the earth.

Even though the weather-forecasting can be rather insecure there's is a long way to go, setting up a station.

And for me, I would miss the weather-girls on Channel 4.

Dept. of Obsession

I want the NYC-skyline for breakfast

Let's face it. Some people have more strange obsessions than others. Ryan Hoagland have one: he have made the Manhattan skyline
in his kitchen. And yes, he lives in San Jose, California.

And he will probably move to NYC since his girlfriend is a New Yorker. It make sense. "Hey, sugarpie! Do you want to come over to my place and watch the Man-skyline?". Done. But it somewhat narrows the searchcriterias - only chics from NYC will surely swallow the hook. But hey, NYC-chics might be swallow.

Dept. of TheEndOfTheWorld

Terminate the politics

"It's the end of the world and we know it"....

The old R.E.M-tune comes to mind when realising that the California state have voted for a ex Mr Universe, "actor" and been making his fortune on violent heroic flicks. I mean - that austrian guy Arnold Schwarzenegger will be the governor of California.

It's the end of the world - this is the Apocalypse.
