Ten ways to use a computer: #10: fry an egg on the processor...
Why not spend a lot on bling-bling on your teeth?
At Bling Bling you can spend your dimes on glittering chimes.
And I totally adore the fabulous marketing lingua without any logic:
"Mr. Bling offers the world’s best craftsmanship and at half the price compared to the leading maker in gold, white gold, and platinum teeth. This master of fine jewelry had been practicing since 1994, and now has mastered the art of teeth jewelry."
Somehow words like "world's best" and "half the price" don't match. Neither do "master" and the "practicing since 1994". Man, I would think twice before putting this stuff in.
On the site What Should I Do If The Internet Goes Down? they give the ten commandments of downtime of the lifeline-connection to the virtual reality:
2. Find A Telephone
3. Use Your Back-Up Computer
4. Install A Game
5. Perform Routine Maintenance (this is my way truly...)
6. Turn On A Television Or Radio
8. Go Outside
The idea of leaving your workstation may seem a little extreme
9. Spend Time With Your Spouse
Communicating with your wife or girlfriend may seem like a radical suggestion, but the time investment may offer long-term rewards. WARNING: These will probably be the longest hours of your life.
10. Use Your Emergency AOL Disk and kill yourself with it...
Personally I'm against death penalty. But as Steven E. Landsburg puts the argument in his essay Feed the Worms Who Write Worms to the Worms the reptile brain says "yes, that figures". Totally weird of course but rather fun way to put the question of the costs of script-kiddies running amok.
This must be one of the most weird hobbies to have: making balls of paint. Not this one that one use when fighting paintball but large rounded objects built by putting on layer after layer of paint. These hillbillys are fucking crazy! And the most hilarious part of it is that people are willing to pay to see the balls!
...and I'm a Fucking girl. In the heaps of links via the RSS-feeds some stand out. Metafilter have a fun story about Fucking. The sign of this small village in Austria is the most stolen street sign in Austria. I would put my money on that it's the most stolen roadsign in the whole world. But "[d]espite the cost of constantly replacing the sign, however, residents of the small village thankfully refuse to change its name."
