This list of “stuff you didn’t know” pretty much delivered on that title for me. “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la
Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula” is Los Angeles? Never heard of it. I did know a couple of these, but overall it’s a good read.
This new little USB computer to PC thingamabob is kind of neat. Of course you can always go to the amazingly handy and still updated Build Your Own PVR site that Rampy made quite a while ago.
The weblog katize has so many good posts, rather than choose just one I suggest you just visit the place.
Sometimes I just can’t get the hang of a game. Juggling Puppies is the latest.
My brilliant plan is to quit my job and find myself a sugar mommy (sister site). I would not be mentioning this or even know of this site if it were not for NPR’s Marketplace. Classic!
The headline to this story pretty much says it all: “Falsely accused woman freed after 70 years”. That’s seven followed by a zero.
The Lunch Box Pad has info, pictures and advertisements related to lunch boxes. I liked the Scrapbook section. Vintage lunch boxes destroy the current crop of lame ones.
If you have Comcast and Bittorrent isn’t what it used to be for you, this article might shed some light on the problem.
Can’t get enough Bloons? Bloons Tower Defense 2 is here to give you more balloon popping fun.
I’m trying to find a decent yet cheapo Halloween costume to wear when taking the kids out this year. Sadly, all of the ones in this Insane Asylum category are out of stock (and won’t fit me anyways, damn you chocolate!). Too bad, I liked a couple. From the same site, this Shrek Donkey is slightly disturbing for some reason. Maybe it’s the teeth.
Take old commercials, loop bits of them and you get this video. The Clapper commercial is now a bit more sinister.
This is a “Scrabble Online Inspired Word Game”. You need a free account and I can’t vouch for a lack of spam, I suggest using a throwaway email address. Fun game though!
WNAR streams radio from the 1930′s – 1950′s. Neato.
This guy has pictures of 455 different energy drink cans, of which I have tried none. Am I missing something by ignoring this obviously busy market? Not safe for work if some naughty language is an issue.
It’s only been a few days, but here’s yet another Spot the Difference game. This one features scrolling, so it’s a bit different.
This collection of photos depicting the World’s Most Beautiful Libraries is pretty amazing. My local has nothing on these.
This site answers one simple question.
While not quite the same as its Orange Box cousin, the idea is sort of the same: Portal: The Flash Version.
