Make Fire Using Chocolate and Coke

Post by Mark

I need to try this, get an empty coke can, smear some chocolate on the bottom and start polishing using the chocolate wrapper. 30 minutes later you will have a mirror like surface. Then hold a twig infront of the mirror under the sun and a few seconds laters you will start a fire. More details and pictures after the jump. [Link]

“Real” Jokes

Post by Mark

Just found a link on waxy to a website with jokes that have real endings. Very silly stuff, here are some examples:

How do you drown a blonde?
Hold her head underwater until she can no longer breathe and stops struggling.

Why did the blonde get fired from the M&M factory?
Repeated absences and stealing.

What’s the difference between the Pope and Michael Jackson?
The Pope is dead.

Why do Mexicans not like going out in the rain?
It’s wet.

What’s worse then finding a worm in your apple?
The Holocaust.

Why was six afraid of seven?
It wasn’t. Numbers are not sentient and thus incapable of feeling fear.

More jokes here.

Q8 Speed

Post by Mark

lambos in kuwait

I just found the coolest website, something I didn’t know existed in Kuwait. The site is actually a car talk forum but based in Kuwait. The members there discuss their latest car upgrades, or a recent car they spotted or which car they raced on what street. Its amazing stuff. Here are some examples of the topics they are discussing:

A8 Quattro Killed moi….. was worth it..
DB9 spotted (with pics)
Driftmaster accident (wallah maa testahel)
HaSsOnY Car Accident!! Gulf Road
SLR in Q8 (with pics)

There are tons more interesting topics and sections for all street racers or car modifiers in Kuwait. Very very interesting stuff and all this is in Kuwait! The website is Q8speed.com. The picture above of the Lamborgini’s is from a Q8 Speed gathering at AUK.

Google Video Upload

Post by Mark

Just launched awhile ago, Google Video Upload lets you submit videos electronically to Google Video. If you video is accepted people will later be able to search and find your video. You can have your video watched for free or you can charge people to watch your video. For example, if you were at Phuket when the Tsunami hit and you recorded it on video. You could have uploaded it to Google Video and charge $5 for example if people wanted to watch it. Since your video would have been interesting then people would have paid. You could also make a home made porn movie if you want and upload it to and charge people to watch it. [Link]

Habbo Hotel

Post by Mark

Have you guys tried Habbo Hotel before? I used to be addicted to it back when I was still in university. Habbo Hotel is basically an online community and its based in a hotel. You create your own character and you wonder around the hotel meeting people. You can hang out at the bar, or at the club or even in the lobby. The whole thing has a Sims feel to it although Habbo Hotel was around long before The Sims was released. If you guys never tried it before it is worth the experience. [Link]

Dummy Text

Post by Mark

There are many occasions when I need Dummy Text for my work. I might be working on a layout or an ad and I need some text to work as place holders until the final text is ready. So, instead of typing gibrish or using InDesign’s lipsum “Fill with placeholder text” option, I use an online real text generator. You tell it how many paragraphs you need and it will give the amount back. Here is the link.

StarWars Line

Post by Mark

Turns out there is a group of StarWars fans who are standing in line outside a movie theater in the States.. but the movie won’t be playing at that theater. The movie will be playing at a nearby theater and they were asked to move and stand in line outside that theater but the fans refused. They believe the movie should be played at the theater they are standing outside of and they are determined to stand in line for another month and a half till the movie comes out.. although it wont be playing at that movie theater. [Link]

UPDATE: Read the comments under the article on that site. Really funny..
