50 Things to do with Tennis Balls

50 things you never thought have doing with tennis balls

"You may remember the often-discussed tennis ball headphones or these 99 extraordinary uses for ordinary objects. Those were pretty great, but it makes you wonder what else these little bundles of latex and wool can do. Since they wear out and lose their bounce quickly, most tennis balls simply end up in the garbage when they stop being useful on the court. If you can’t stand to throw them away, they tend to pile up quickly - so what can you do with them?"

They have their uses...

Top Ten Frivolous Lawsuits


"We’ve all heard the one about the woman who spilled scalding coffee and successfully sued McDonald’s. But we’ve also heard reports of burglars suing homeowners after injuring themselves during a robbery. And don’t forget the stories of Winnebago owners winning lawsuits after they left the driver’s seat because the vehicle’s cruise control was activated. Most of us laugh off these stories as urban legends made to show the absurdity of frivolous lawsuits. You might be surprised, however, by how many of these are true."

Excellent article...

Water: H2O=Life


"Every language has a word for water; no living thing exists without water. It soothes the spirit and sustains the body; its beauty inspires art and music. Employed by cultures around the world in rituals and ceremonies, water bathes us from birth to death. Water is essential to life as we know it. And as it cycles from the air to the land to the sea and back again, water shapes our planet—and nearly every aspect of our lives."

Religious Tattoos


I've got some tattoos and so have a lot of my friends - this site is actually dedicated to religious-type tattoos - Judeo-Christian religions to be more exact.

Lots of pictures of these types of tattoos so if you fancy one yourself just print out the picture, take it to your local tattoo artist and tell him "I want that one."

Top 10 Female Warriors


"This is a list of the greatest female warriors through history. In order to be selected for this list, the woman has had to be someone who fought in battle herself, not just commanding from a distance, and she had to be real - for this reason people like Hua Mulan are not included as there is a lot of doubt about their historical existence."

Queen Tamar of Georgia (13th Century) is #1
