Homes by fridgedaire

The next time you get hit up by a homeless person for some change, consider giving him a handful of Mr. McGroovy's Box Rivets instead. Box rivets can be used to fasten refrigerator boxes together, allowing you to easily add on to a one-room refrigerator box studio and turn it into a palatial multi-room refrigerator box castle. Plans can be downloaded from the website for those who lack the cardboard engineering skills to figure out how to do it for themselves.

ABrief history of Gaming

www.thegameconsole.com

Journey back to 1972 when the Magnavox Odyssey made history by being the first home video game system, predating the Atari Pong units by a full three years. Then follow the history of home game systems forward all the way to up to the current PS3 and Wii systems. This exhaustive guide probably contains entries on a number of systems you've never heard of and a few that you didn't know even existed. The only one I can think of that didn't make the list was the Bandai ( Apple ) Pippin, but since only a few thousand of those ever hit the stores here in the states, we can overlook that.

So much for eternal peace

Video screens are pretty much everywhere nowadays. You're subjected to them in elevators, cabs, and at gas pumps. Hell, they're even over the potatos at Jewel. You've probably come to believe that the only way to escape them is to die. BZZZZZZZZZZZ. Thanks for playing. Now they will follow you to your grave thanks to the fine folks at VidStone. They manufacture weather-proof, solar-powered LCD displays for embedding into headstones. These displays can play back 'memorials' for the deceased. You think commercials are far behind?

So that's why the aliens do that rectal probe-thing

www.calmcow.com

Make sure to click on the demo video. Watch the Calm-Cow rectal probe being inserted into the young, unsuspecting bull. Continue to view in leg-crossing horror as the animal's sac is slashed, the nads squeezed out... and he just stands there. Such is the wonder of the Calm-Cow, a probe you shove up a young bull's ass that emits weak electromagnetic waves that somehow immobilize the animal. Once it's in and on, you can take him from bull to steer with no further restraint. Good lord. I can see the ads now for Calm-Cow Fetish Night at the Eagle or Touché. ( Demo at midnight! )
