The Effing Typeface


Rude font style - maybe they should use this font on the porn sites - just to keep the right style of things...


"Australian runner Michelle Jenneke recently partook in running the the 100m hurdles during the World Junior Championships in Barcelona. Prior to her race the cameras were rolling and captured her pre-race routine which was phenomenal. Words can't accurately describe the dance she pulled off, but we hope to see it again. The song and slow motion combined already make this a YouTube legend."

There's something very sensual about this and she's an athlete as well - very much doubt I would be enough for her (if it was ever on the cards that is).

Better than a Toothbrush?

Is chewing this spiky rubber disc really as effective as brushing your teeth?

"Designed for those times when you've just had a meal but can't sneak away to brush your teeth, the Rolly is a small rubber disc covered in 276 spiky bristles that promises to be as effective at cleaning your teeth as brushing, when chewed like a piece of gum."


The Search for China's Past

Article and photos

"China's photographic record begins only in the 1970s because nearly all earlier pictures were destroyed. The ones that survived are mostly outside China, and a major effort is now under way to bring them together online"


No Comments..

Hi All

Just a quick one to say that I am aware of the issue regarding leaving comments on this blog - It has been since the move to the new server a couple of months ago with which I had considerable pain and frustration :( (I don't think it worked properly even before the migration)

I have had a good look at the problem and can now conclude that the only way I can sort this is to either upgrade to the newest version of Movable Type (the software this blog runs on) or switching to Wordpress or something else.

Considering the hassle with the last upgrade / server move I am holding off on this because last time I almost all lost the archives which is not what I want.

Anyway just to let you know it's in the pipeline but won't be doing it for a while yet - I'm up to my eyeballs in computers that are needing fixed so appreciate my regular visitors' patience on this.



The Cube Tube Reinvents Ice Trays

This new invention is set to revolutionize ice cube making.

"The value of smart design can't be overemphasized. And it's all the more refreshing when it comes to everyday objects. Like regular ice trays. Those things are stupid. You have to pull off a balancing act between the sink and the freezer so you won't spill any water, and then getting the ice out and into a glass is yet another crapshoot. The Cube Tube pictured below solves both of those problems at once"




This is a craze that apparently started in New York whereby women get their **area** decorated with crystals of different designs. It's often done to commemorate special occasions - maybe something like tattoos?

Detailed Monthly Horoscopes


You may think like I used to that astrology is a load of rubbish but I had a personal reading done by a prominent Thai astrologer who was living on  the same floor in the same apartment block as me who noted down my exact year/date/time and place of birth in degrees latititude and longitude. He worked on it that night and the next day I couldn't believe how much he knew about my past and present situations - the advice he gave me for the future was also spot on.

It's the fake / untrained astrologers that give a bad name to the real ones.

We are life living on a planet in a solar system in a galaxy in a universe and everything we are, say and do has influence on something else.

The above site will give you a very detailed monthly reading (click on the 'continued' link after the summary) and is one of the best I've seen on the Web..

Guide To Dating Rich Girls


"Rich girls are hot because their moms are hot. But they're also insane because their dads are inbred sociopaths with Nazi fetishes. All of this makes dating one for a short period of time an excitingly weird mixture of prescription pills, naps, crazy arguments, depressing music, room service, therapists, tattoos that cost more than cars, jet lag, and guestlists. It's gonna be fun!"

Once you've got one in the sack then you might find this guide (NSFW) of some use (or not) depending how much of this you've done before - or whether or not you like women..

Tips and tricks for wanna-be trannies. There's advice and external links to other sites with detailed explanations on make-up, wigs etc.

Thailand probably has the most 'lady-boys' per-capita in the world and having lived there for 10 years I can say that many of these could do worse than learn a few things about how to do it properly.

If you're planning a trip out there and worried you might unwittingly end up in the sack with one just check that the woman you are with doesn't have an Adam's apple :-)

YouTube Picks #185 - From Love to Bingo

"Patient research work involving more than 5 thousand photographs resulted in a 1 minute film that AlmapBBDO created to advertise Getty Images, the world leading image database for creating and distributing visual contents. The film is surprising when showing 873 images in 15 images per second, sufficient speed to transform the series into a video that, without any text, tells a beautiful story. All photos, without any exceptions, are from the Getty Images archives."

A lot more interesting than you usual 1 minute video clip...
