Kottke -- y'know, there's a permanent link in the right hand bar, but I like highlighting specific posts of his -- poses this question: Let's say you're a new father and a movie fan. When your child is of an appropriate age to start watching movies, in… more »

I've seen this done with other areas of interest, but never with restaurant recommendations: more »

Link is to an extremely funny expose of the current top-of-the-line Wendy's burger. more »

Stupidity is its own reward

11/14/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
Having demonstrated my innate gullibility by going to one of their "network previews", the geniuses over at Television Preview decided to reward me with more tickets to their next event. Actually, they gave me four tickets this time instead of the two… more »

Little Lego animation to go along with an Eddie Izzard skit. Given the teller, you may not want to play this in earshot of younger Star Wars fanatics. more »

It's true

10/22/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
It really doesn't matter what the programmer is actually doing; as soon as the words "code's compiling" are spoken, a free period appears to be granted. I suppose I could counter that with "document the change while you're waiting" and watch heads… more »

Best answering machine message ever

10/13/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
I arrived home one evening to find the answering machine light blinking. The message? Oh, I'm sorry. I think I have the wrong number. Talk to you later! more »

"Wired" on daft suggestions

10/07/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly

Need a caffeine jolt?

What happens when the aircraft is overrun by vampires? Huh? You reckon 100 millilitres will suffice? (Via BoingBoing) more »

I'm not smart enough to work at Google

09/29/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
