Once You Pop, You Can't Stop

Ever come across a piece of bubblewrap and can't seem to control the urge to pop a few of those little blisters? Oh, sure, like it's just me...

In any case, the next time you're dying for a little stress relief by popping bubbles, check out the link below. Just pop the bubbles by clicking on them. And when you need more, just click for a new sheet. Pop away!

Future recipients of the Darwin Award

Look close, and you'll see that these enterprising men have outfitted their inflatable pool with a nifty bar and grille. Yes, that's a hot plate on the table.

And yes, it's electric.

Apparently the cord wasn't long enough to make it out of the pool, so they ingeniously used a pair of floating flip flops as a platform for their surge protector.

Add the brewskis in everyone's hands, and this has all the makings of another thinning of the genepool.

This is the stuff that the Darwin Awards are made of. As they like to say, "The Tree of Life is self-pruning".

What's Your Secret?

I had heard about this project before, but had forgotten about it. Basically, it's a website where folks have sent in postcards with secret admissions. Some are funny, some are poignant, some are painful. But all have a ring of honesty that takes it out of the realm of reality TV and into the world of unvarnished truths.

Transparent Wallpaper

This is a really creative set. The angles, the images, all lining up to create the illusion of transparent monitor screens. If you look close, you'll see that the cat on the screen is a picture, the tail on the bed to the right of the screen is real.

There are a whole bunch of these on the site that are really cool looking. I can't imagine how much time it takes to line up the second shot, the one with the screen already loaded...

I'll Take Mine With Two Eyes Please...

Mr. Picassohead

A cool way to play Picasso a la Mr. Potatohead. Choose from Picasso-esque eyes, lips, hair, etc., to create your own masterpiece. When you're done, send it to a friend. Just be sure not to tell them it's a portrait.

I Like The Way This Guy Thinks


The twisted side of my sense of humor found most of the items on this list pretty darned funny. In particular number 32:
Ask your co-workers mysterious questions and then scribble their answers in a notebook. Mutter something about "psychological profiles."

Given some of the people I work with, this isn't that hard to pull off.

I think this list could definitely be expanded. For example:

  • Start every conversation with "Can I ask you a question" and before you hear a response, ask it.
  • Pretend the person in front of you has a piece amount of lint on their shoulder and insist on removing it for them.
  • Take a cup of water into a bathroom stall, and wait for someone to enter the one next to you. When they do, make a large groaning sound, a grunt, then toss the water on the floor at their stall.
Got a suggestion for the list? Drop it in a comment.
