Cool Things I found This week

I guess I'm feeling melancholy this week, or maybe just searching for motivation....

This is from the Blogess photo stream. The more I see of her, the more I am completely amazed by her, and completely jealous of her!

She also led me to this....

Spot the Difference

Being a Fleet Manager and general subscriber to crap, I often get advertising e-mails.  Todays special little beauty was from

Normally I just delete them, but one of their feature articles on a new Bale Wrapper Range caught my eye.

I felt sure I have seen this design before

Yep that's right, I think they have appointed Hanna or Barbera as their vehicle designer.

A Question for Spammers

Are you still making money from your wicked ways?  Does investing in those awful autobots and phishing tools make it worth your while?

Surely the odds are these days that if your e-mails manage to fight past the firewalls and spam filters and junk folders, the best they get is a click of the delete button.

Are there still people out there that are stupid enough to click on your links for penis enlargements and hot lusty women?

From the Universe

Never compromise a dream.

Always compromise on how it will come true.

Viral Poem

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue..
Then I turned around and
smacked the shit out of him...

Like his mother used to do.

P.s: The photo came from here: check out the rest, they are awesome!

Mixed Nuts

Man 'hasn't eaten, drunk in 70 years'
I love the idea in theory - never have to eat, and never have to go to the toilet...
but then... imagine not tasting a chocolate covered strawberry, or not having popcorn at the movies, or not cracking a cold beer at the footy. 
Most people's whole social lives are based on food or drink related activities... so surely even if you can live without food or drink, wouldn't you be giving up living?

It's about Time!

I really REALLY wish that this scheme had been around when my boy was only a baby.

The baby whisperers

They call it "Sleep School" - a fantastic way for the parent to learn the steps of controlled crying, with a sane minded  assistant there in the way of a nurse, a medical professional you can trust to be stern but fair, and to not have irrational, sleep deprived ideas clouding their judgement. 
The concept of controlled crying is a good one, but when most parents have the need for this method, they do not have the mental strength and energy to carry it through correctly.

Whoever brought this scheme into fruition deserves the nobel peace prize!
