Forgotten and Unseen Electronics Part 15

If you have trouble remembering your wedding anniversary than you'll want the Remember Ring. 24 hours before the anniversary it'll start to slowly burn your finger every hour for the whole day. I think this would teach people not to wear their wedding ring instead of remembering their anniversary. Unfortunately it's out of stock but you can read more about it here:

The Cress Funeral Home

The Cress funeral home in Madison, Wisconsin offers modern facilities, ample parking, a pleasant environmentally comfortable atmosphere, and an on-site cremation center. Oh, and it's also got a gallery of taxidermied squirrels, including several albino squirrels, posed in various settings: playing poker, riding horses, dancing in a "topless girlie show," etc. has more info. Or check out the video below of the gallery.

Category: Death - When you REALLY have to go

With the advent of the internet, I was hoping someone would develop a site like Not only clever, but this website lists times when you could politely excuse yourself and find bladder relief without missing too much of the movie. Try out the interactive times listed for each movie and see if you agree. I especially like the scrambled spoilers which will tell you what you are missing. Click on "unscramble" and you'll get a short plot summary of what you will miss. Some movie listings even have "anti-pee" times, like in "Star Trek" when Kirk is on the ice planet.


Here's the link!!

My personal philosophy for when to go is to wait until just after an intense battle scene. This technique has worked especially well for me, except I didn't get to go during "P.S. I Love You".

Does it Only Do Beans?

Heinz (of ketchup fame) recently introduced the Beanzawave, a tiny microwave that is powered by a computers USB port and would be the world's smallest microwave (7.4 inches tall x 6.2 inches wide x 5.9 deep). Only a prototype at the moment, the Beanzawave is a major breakthrough for its use of cell phone radio frequencies to cook your food in under a minute. If you don't like to lug a laptop around with you when you leave your house, but still have the need to microwave your food wherever you go there is an option to use a battery. When/If Heinz decides to go ahead and manufacture this microwave it'll cost about $160 and you'll never have to leave your computer every again. Daily Mail

Inventions of Buckminster Fuller, Part 5: Dymaxion Sleep

This was more a concept than an invention. It is also known as polyphasic sleep, meaning sleeping at more than one interval during a day. Although not really invented by Fuller, he did popularize it and gave it a catchy nickname. Bucky claims to have slept only 30 minutes every 6 hours and did not suffer any ill effects. You can read a story about it in Time Magazine's archives.

Love Day

As any fan of The Simpsons knows, Springfield once celebrated a totally bogus and greed-stoked holiday known as Love Day.

Utterly oblivious to any satirical implications that make them look like idiots, the famed jeweler Cartier has decided to celebrate Love Day too. I find references to this "holiday" going back to 2007.

Here's their home page.

Street With A View

Last year, with the cooperation of Google, two artists and a bunch of helpers turned a little alley in Pittsburgh into "the most interesting street in the world."

Marla Olmstead

Perhaps you recall that artistic toddler, Marla Olmstead, who, as a four-year-old, sold her paintings for big bucks. Born in 2000, could she be washed up at age nine? No! She's still painting.

Here's her site.
