FYI
Presidential Diseases

"From George Washington's toothlessness (he has no teeth left by middle age), to Grover Cleveland's gout, to Franklin D. Roosevelt's polio, to Ronald Reagan's Alzheimer disease, and finally to George W. Bush's colon polyps, presidents throughout history suffer from the same diseases and ailments like the rest of us."

VIDEO
Speed Wobble

The skateboard slalom record is 100 pylons in 21.7 seconds. That might not sound impressive, but you may change your mind after watching the video.

Tower Defence

You know the routine... defend thy tower.

COOL
Chevy Camaro Convertible Concept

I didn't exactly love the concept design of the upcoming Chevy Camaro, but the convertible version in orange looks pretty nice. These images weren't supposed to be released until Saturday when the car was going to be unveiled at the GM Style event, so enjoy or whatever.

COOL
Celebrity Patents

The power of Google's Patent Search has allowed users to easily dig through the millions of records and find some that were created by... celebrities. Some of them are worth a look simply for the art work.

ART
Experiments in Art

Artist Dominic Wilcox some very odd (and interesting) projects on display at his website.

FYI
Twix 'n Twix

Looking for a fun way to fatten up your family? How about creating a giant Twix bar?

PLAY
Snow Drift

Cast as much snow as possible on the boards during a 60 second run to score points. This is another advergame, but it's not bad at all.

EYE CANDY
New Year's Eve Panoramas

Panoramas.dk has put together a collection of panoramic images of New Year's Eve celebrations from around the world. The images require QTVR, so if Quick Time is a dirty word to you, move along.

FOLLOWUP
Transformers Trailer

It's a small thing, but the Transformers trailer that was released a few weeks ago (that was so popular around here) was also released in Japan, though with a few additional scenes we didn't see here in the states.

EYE CANDY
Stereo 3D

Images of water drops aren't exactly new, but this site lets you manipulate the images a bit, and even view some of them in 3D.

GEEKS!
The Future Internet (1995)

In late 1994, writers from the magazine "The Internet" made predictions about the future of the 'net. Complaints about the lack of organization of the web (no search engines back then) are a great reminder of how far we've come.

PLAY
MotherLoad

"Use your digger to excavate as much ore as possible. Use the money you earn to upgrade your digger and move deeper and deeper underground, to unearth the mysteries from below." This is a classic from way back.

WTF
Burn Me, Tickle Me

Do we need further proof that Elmo is evil? Even when engulfed in flames, the little guy fights until the end.
