Friday afternoon seems to have come early

I have to be elsewhere today, so links are early this week. Still, you could save them 'til later... Consider it a kind of meta-procrastination, if that helps. Anyway, here goes:


I'm not sure jellyfish were meant to fly, but someone evidently thought so (link courtesy of Laughing Squid, appropriately enough).

What would Facebook be like if it were real life? Probably much like this. Still quite annoying, in other words.

Here's an alarm clock that gives you the run around. Hmm, it would get you out of bed, undoubtedly... but how long before you ripped it's tiny sleep-destroying wheels off?

Book type stuff

Get your free downloadable Star Wars audio book/pdf/eBook here. Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Betrayal is available until midnight Tuesday 13th May.

When you're done with that you can just delete it, but if you've got some (non-downloadable) books you'd like to be rid of, why not offer them at BookMooch? The more you give away, the more you can get in return.

For some reason, Wikipedia will soon be available in book form. In German, though, and only the 50,000 most commonly searched entries. I suppose that makes it the zeitgeist edition...


How to make a steampunk mouse. Which, erm, does seem to involve buying an actual mouse... but just for the circuitry.

Ever thought that all those people you see rushing around with briefcases must be horribly busy? Well, turns out they might be lazier than you thought.

All the convenience of MP3, with all the inconvenience (but nostalgia) of the mixtape: the MP3 cassette player. For the tech-minded semi-luddite, I suppose.


If internet browsing isn't already proving dangerously addictive enough for you, why not make things worse for yourself by signing up to the Passively Multiplayer Online Game?

Or do you fancy a game that actually exists in three physical dimensions, for once? Actually, it's not so much a game as a freeform puzzle... Anyway, find out how to get your hands on the Neocube here.

And if you still miss the Nintendo NES, and even better still have your old cartridges, why not while away some office time by bidding for one of these on eBay? Ah, nostalgia - it's not what it used to be...

And finally...

Remember Ren & Stimpy? And perhaps even more fondly, the fantastic 1950s goodness that was the incidental music? So does someone else - download it here and dance around the office like a dyspeptic chihuahua. Go on, you know you want to.
