You use space heaters occasionally to heat a small room, but those are honestly huge eye sores. As in, your visitors walk in, and they walk out with bandages on their corneas and a plan to sue your broke self.
I have never been big on camping, but the Tentanic might just change my mind. In case you’re wondering, the Tentanic is a tent of massive proportions, with a name that was drawn from one of the most well-known cruise ships in history: the Titanic.
I’m not a huge fan of sardines. Sure, I find myself craving some once in a while, but they’re not my most favorite fish in the world. But sardines seem like it’s the fish of choice for furniture designer Tristan Cochrane.
I tried lying down on the concrete road once for a school project, and let me just say that my back was sore for close to a week afterwards. Obviously concrete isn’t made for comfort; it’s made to be strong and hard and long-lasting so we don’t end up with horribly cracked roads and structures.
I was staring outside my window, being bored and all kinds of lazy, when I noticed a soon-to-be-mama bird in the middle of building her nest. There was just something about how carefully she aligned the bits of leaves and twigs that got me thinking about what it might feel like to sleep in one.
Inception was both an eye-opening and mind-opening movie, although it was mostly and obviously fiction. Floating people and objects will never become a reality unless somethings gone awry with gravity. But then again – is it possible?
If you’d like to have your own zen garden but don’t have the real estate or the skills to maintain one, Simon Hallam’s invention may be a good alternative. Hallam’s Zen Table has a glass-covered surface filled with silicone beads.
When the police encounter a locked door and can’t kick it open, they just shoot the doorknob and push their way inside. At least that’s what happens in the movies, anyway. For us ordinary, non-law-enforcement citizens, getting a locked door open is pretty boring because we just use a key (or risk getting arrested.)
The shower curtain for Facebook addicts. The part where your profile pic appears is a transparent sheet, so you can pose for uh, the other people in your bathroom, I guess. Just like your profile on the site itself, it’s a celebration of your willingness to sacrifice your privacy in order to stay in touch and/or have your existence validated!
I have gone through several job interviews over the years. When I worked in the medical field and could kill someone with the wrong button press, all they wanted to know was that my license was good and I would show up for the night shift.
Do you want to launch a missile on your cat or crash a car in your bedroom? Really? Why would you want to do that? Go to your room and think about what you thought of while the rest of us have fun with the Action Movie FX iOS app.
I for one think that every party should have a piñata. I don’t care if it’s a birthday, a christening, a wedding or a wake. Smacking objects with a bat while blindfolded until candy pours onto the ground is just perfect for any occasion.
Here in Texas, it is rare to get snow, so when winter rolls around all we can do is throw handfuls of that foaming hand soap around and pretend its cold. We can go years without seeing any sort of snow around here and if you live in a similarly warm climate, you might want to check out the new Google Easter Egg which turned up this week.
I remember the Tamagotchi “virtual pet” craze from years ago. It’s definitely something uniquely Japanese, but it did have global appeal too. If you were one of those original Tamagotchi fans, then you’ll be happy to find out that Bandai has just released a special 15-year anniversary edition Tamagotchi.
I’ve always loved pinball machines. Sure, video games have completely replaced them as my primary form of gaming entertainment, but I still always love the tactile feel of the flippers and bumpers as they clack against the steel ball.
