This is a blog about all the more unusual products out there on the market with entries like 'Wedgie-proof underwear' and 'Stainless steel lollipops' (really these are real mass-produced products!) Furthermore the site also links to the home pages of these products and to places where you can actually buy this weird stuff.

I'm not sure that I'd want some of these in our place - some of them look a bit on the dangerous side but sure they would make a good talking point at a dinner party (if you're into those).

Which Book

http://www.whichbook.net/

If you are like me then you spend at least 30 minutes every day reading a book. This site will help you find a read for every mood you're in at the time.

You choose your own parameters using sliding scales and the site will recommend a book or books according to your customized parameters.

Nice idea.

"What is music? Is birdsong music? How about the tap-tap-tap of a hammer, or the wail of a creaking door? Is playing a garbage can different than playing a drum?"

Yes, I know, you're probably thinking that you see far too many of links to these Photoshop articles and competitions on this site. If you're halfway computer-literate then the chances are that you can make your own stuff in PS but you do need the imagination to think of what to do in the first place!

"Biorhythm charts illustrate the principle that we are influenced by physical, emotional, and intellectual cycles. Many people report that they can improve the quality of their lives by monitoring the highs and lows of these cycles and acting accordingly. For example, you might try to schedule important exams during your intellectual highs, avoid talking to your significant other during your emotional lows, or arranging the lineup of your baseball team around their physical highs."
