killing time

Want something completely and utterly mindless, but might keep you occupied for a few moments? Here you are. Yeah, you’re welcome. Try snycing it to the music in your head.

About time – streamlined google hacks.

There’s some local band up in Canada called Divided Highway. Just a small group of guys playing locally somewhere up north. Decent enough website. Here’s the backdoor to their set lists, song sheets, and mp3 collection. Welcome. C’mon – they play some Bee Gees music! They deserve to get hacked …

This game’ll piss you off. Just move your mouse over some apples and watch the computer, the process becomes obvious.

How does something like this happen? The website pen island dot net looks like penis land dot net. Nice job marketing! The Methodists have the weirdest races. The Cumming First Methodist Church is, yep, cumming first dot com. Is that a tumor on your ass or just a speedo fart brought to you by speed of art dot com?

Here’s a remarkable story: Convicted forger A. Schiller was serving his time in Sing Sing prison in the late 1800s when guards found him dead in his cell. On his body they found seven regular straight pins whose heads measured the typical 47/1000ths of an inch or 1.17 millimeters in diameter. Under 500-times magnification it was found that the tiny etchings seen on the heads of the pins were the words to The Lord's Prayer, which is 65 words and 254 letters long. Of the seven pins, six were silver and one was gold - the gold pin's prayer was flawless and a true masterpiece. Schiller had spent the last 25 years of his life creating the pins, using a tool too small to be seen by the naked eye. It is estimated that it took 1,863 separate carving strokes to make it. Schiller went blind because of his artwork. This link begins with an amazing pencil carving.

This website gets my vote for coolest design.

Click on the glasses for hundreds of beer recipes. I don’t drink much at all anymore. Makes me thirsty.

Enough browsing the net.

Me? Going to the Philadelphia International Auto Show tomorrow. Never been to one before. Should be interesting. Beyond that, have a light travel schedule for a couple of weeks, but heavy production schedule. Lots of docs going out.

Yawning ...
