Garfield minus Garfield





How would Garfield comics look like without Garfield in them?
Turns out the comic changes completely and turns into a showcase of schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life.

Meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness in a quiet American suburb.

This site made a bunch of Garfield-less Garfield comics.
Some are extremely funny, others are sad or just plain weird.

Hattrick




Do you like football (soccer)? Then read on!

Even wanted to play a free online game where you can create your own team, manage it and buy/sell/train players? And while you're doing that you can also play against other teams every week and try to get to thehighest division in your country.

I've got one and I'm currently in division 7 out of 9. It'll take a while to get to the highest division, but that's a big part of the fun. Not just a little time waster but a big game that can last forever and only needs a little bit of time every week. Try it out, you'll like it.

Go to Hattrick now

Japanese Tetris



What do you get when you combine Tetris and Japan? A very weird but entertaining game show, of course.

London 2012





So I just saw the chosen official logo of the 2012 olympics. At first I hated it. Bad colors, bad shapes, ugh. But after looking at it for some time, the depth occured to me. The strange shapes spell out an abstract 2012 and also, if you look closer, form a stylised athlete, which is pretty neatly done.



But the purple and yellow still bugged me, until I learned the logo is going to be used in a wide variety of colors. So I guess I can live with it, even though most of the other reactions were negative.

Here's the BBC link

Besides, the fact that the stylized man is a little less obvious this time and the fact that they, for once, avoided the cliche of using the olympic colors, is worth something too. Check out these logo's from previous and upcoming olympics. Cliché anyone?

Flow





This is a very simple, yet great and very addicting game. If you heard about the upcoming Will Wright game "Spore" and saw the demo-presentation. You'll find it has resemblances to the first stage of that game.

Part of the fun of the game is figuring out how it works. It's fairly simple and straightforward. Only pointer I'll give is that you have to eat the red-dot fish to go down a level and the blue-dot fish to go up a level.

Goal of the game? Have fun and grow as big as possible. When you beat the two largest fish on the deepest level you can start over as a jellyfish :D

Amazing Camouflage



Ever seen an army all dressed up in camouflage gear? Well, they try but compared to this octopus, they are nothing. This guy is truly the master of camouflage.

Sort 'em out




This is a fun little game where you have to sort out the different kind of factory workers to the right box that will take them to their working spot. It gets a but tricky at the end. I scored 98,870, see if you can do better :)

How to mess with a telemarketer





Most people can't stand telemarketers. They always just happen to call when your eating dinner and annoy you with the most outrageous 'promotions' they have to offer you. Some people have made it a hobby to mess with them. This guy is one of the masters of that game. Listen to the audio clip and be amused :)

The human camera





Stephen Wiltshire can be considered a human camera. He’s an autistic man who can accurately draw entire cities right from his memory after a mere 45-minute helicopter ride. He gets it right down to the correct number of windows in each building. Truly amazing.

Daniel Chesterfield



Remember that Belgian comedy guy doing a parody of David Copperfield? Original

Looks like Hummer noticed and hired him to do some commercials. :D
Turning 29.5K in a hummmer: Commercial 1
Parking garage: Commercial 2
20 miles per gallon: Commercial 3
Fitting one in a small garage: Commercial 4

Magic! :p

Weird Al does it again.



Weird Al is at it again. He made a new cd filled with satirical songs, called 'Straight outta Lynwood' in a nod to 'straight outta Compton'. He even made the first song on the cd free for download. It's called 'Don't download this song'.
Have a hear. It's hilarious with lines like:

"Don't take away money from artists just like me
How else can I afford another solid gold Humvee?
And diamond-studded swimming pools, these things don't grow on trees" :D

Here it is: Don't click this link ;)

Hearing Range



How good is your hearing? We all know dogs can hear very high tones, tones a human ear can't hear anymore. That's how the dog whistle works.
But even among humans there are differences in hearing capabilities. Generally, the younger you are the higher tones you are able to hear. I found a blog with sound samples going from 10,000 Hz all the way up to 25,000Hz. I could hear the tones up to 20,000Hz, after that, I only heard silence, although 21k and 22k did gave me a headache-like feeling in the head. How high can you go? Let me know :)

North Korea trip



This are two interesting travel reports from 2 guys who went to North Korea. Since the country is pretty much blocked off from the rest of the world, getting in to it isn't that easy unless you go with a guided tourist group. And even then they won't let you out of their sight and make sure you only see what they want you to see. Still two interesting reports from a country of which little is known to most people. Let me know what you think of them.

North Korea story 1

I noticed the second one took lots more 'forbidden' pictures, that he shot while the guides wern't looking :p

Oceanogram



Ever wanted to send a message in a bottle? Or would you like to read washed up bottles sent by other people? Well, now you can without having actually having to go to the ocean. Just go to Oceanogram and send your messages out and read messages sent out from all parts of the world. Enjoy.

ThiefBaumsworld



Ever heard of ebaumsworld.com? Or as I like to call it, ebumsworld.com. Well this guy made his site big by taking content of off other people's websites instead of creating his own. Ignoring copyrights and complaints along the way. This has resulted in some cool stuff along the way, though, like this flash movie:




And now there's a game where you can play Ebum himself! Try to rip off as many sites as possible and watch out for the copyright signs.

The importance of emphasis in a spoken sentence.



"I didn't say you stole the money."

Depending on the word you put emphasis on, it can have 7 different meanings with no actual changes in the written words.

"*I* didn't say you stole the money." - he said it
"I *didn't* say you stole the money." - rejects the accusation
"I didn't *say* you stole the money." - I implied it
"I didn't say *you* stole the money." - mistaken identity
"I didn't say you *stole* the money." - it may have been misplaced
"I didn't say you stole *the* money." - just money in general
"I didn't say you stole the *money*." - just everything else


I never thought about how important the right emphasis can be. :)
