I know I'm heavy on the "shorts" lately and all three of these are from Boing Boing. I read it so you don't have to.

** lets you know when you can go pee during a movie and tells you what you'll miss if you do. Amazingly, when my sisters and I saw Star Trek last weekend, one of them left at exactly one of the recommended moments. (Boing Boing article)


A couple of NYC artists paint pictures of things they want and then sell them for the cost of the thing they want on their website: Then when someone buys the painting, they get the thing they want and take a picture of it and post that to their Flickr feed. Genius.

Ranging form the cheap:
"Aspirin" $9.99

To the expensive:
"An iPhone" $432.42

To the generous:
"To Help Kids in New Orleans" $100.00

My favorite though was an entire trip to Vegas sold in individual parts. (Boing Boing article)


Hmm... while I definitely preferred Obama's speech on National Security to Cheney's inaccuracy riddled one, I must say the President didn't score any points with me with his obviously unconstitutional "Indefinite Preventative Detention" concept. As Boing Boing put it: "Change I don't believe in."

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
