Best use of an iPhone.

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Bruuks just sent this through.

What is the best use of an iPhone? . . . you know, aside from making phone calls, keeping up on work, MLB scores, etc. etc . . . Of course, it is the ability to open bottles of beer.

I have ruined more than “one thing” after trying to fashion that “one thing” it into a bottle opener, in the absence of a bottle opener.

Link Here.

After much field research, the spokes of a spinning bicycle wheel work fabulously for opening bottles of beer. Granted, in this context, if you do not have a bottle opener a bicycle is required. I wouldn’t necessarily try this with your fancy Dura Ace Tubulars.

Outer Space!

All the Typographers down at the Nerdery are beside themselves over this! I count myself among them.

The distance to the moon is 385,000,000,000 mm. The size of an unkerned piece of normal cut Helvetica at 100pt is 136.23 mm. Therefore it would take 2,826,206,643.42 helveticas to get to the moon.

I have a cat and an old VCR.

Some dudes shared this gem with me . . . Saturday Night Live did a parody of it, but they really didn’t need to — It parodies itself just fine.

This is magic.

This is also the first entire Insane Clown Posse song I have ever listened to.

Perhaps you desire to make like Walter, Donny and The Dude (the other Jeffrey Lebowski) and treat yourself to a delicious In-N-Out Burger. But maybe you don’t live in America, which would drastically effect your accessibility to an In-N-Out Burger.

If that is the case, it will be necessary to take matters into your own hands — Like this guy did, he used science to recreate an In-N-Out Burger.

Thanks Science.

If the Good Lord has blessed you with a nice Tabletop. You will always have a nice Tabletop.

Winter Legs.

The present temperature is -3 degrees Celsius (Which I think is around 26 degrees Fahrenheit. I have no idea how that whole system works), but we are to reach a daytime of high of 15 degrees Celsius.

Before 9am this morning I spotted three people outside wearing short pants. It seems early in the season for this kind of dress.

Canada is a funny place.

The Economy of Pillows.

Injuring yourself while sleeping is nothing to be proud of.

A war injury, sports injury, or an injury sustained during your Seafaring days — those are deemed respectable and are often attached to a gripping story as well. Sleeping wrong and not being able to turn your neck the following day? That story isn’t going to fly at the next social mixer.

Someone suggested it was my pillow which caused me pain. “You need a new pillow”, they said.

Here is the truth. I am a 34 year old male and not once in my life have I ever gone into a shop and purchased a pillow. Yet. I have always had a pillow.

This economy of pillows. I don’t get it.

Out of all theories, the Particle Theory is probably my favorite.
