This is my first Shotgun post generated by a script given to me by
Mike. Thanks, Mike, for making this a lot easier!
Hat tip to
Bob McC for at least a couple of the links below.
Kitchen Myths (food, reference, science)
Debunking kitchen myths. I agree, for the most part. Although the fridge does smell better when you've got baking soda in there. Even though charcoal is better.
(flash, fun, game) POOM!
It's a flash game of bouncing balls and platforms with holes. Try it, it;'s annoying as hell.
Pint Lock (funny, gadgets, wtf)
Ben and Jerry's offers this combination lock. For your pint of ice cream. I kid you not.
Quick Verbal Tactics (howto, language, writing, social)
Sometimes the key to better relationships is better communication. You can view it as a tactic, or just good people skills.
Overcoming workflow paralysis (gtd, lifehacks, productivity)
I need to learn how to do this.
Rhode Island Novelty (shopping, toys, fun)
"Your Home For Novelties, Jokes, Party Supplies and Toys" Source of cheap stuff for party favors or just goofing around. And they're local! No shipping needed.
Lucy in the Sky with Shatner (fun, funny, music, video)
Take a psychedelic journey to nowhere in particular in this haunting animation featuring the stoned vocal stylings of William Shatner. Some animator breathes new life into a classic.
(fun, graphics) FACEANALYZER
An automated online tool that (supposedly) analyzes a picture of your face and tells you… something about yourself.
The Sith Sense (fun, flash, games, movies, starwars)
Darth Vader challenges you to a game of 20 Questions.
Vicki Cobb's Home Page (science, education, kids, fun)
Ms. Cobb wrote a book about optical and other illusions, which i never read, but the idea of the book fascinated me when I saw it in the bookstore. Now she has a website.
Visible Human Browser (science, java, health)
Amazing set of cryogenic slices served up to you by Java applet. Look inside the human body, slice by slice.
Ignoranus, Foreploy, Caterpallor and Osteoprnosis (words, humor, funny, blog/entry)
Neologisms ostensibly from the "Washington Post's Mensa Invitational"
Seven Minutes In Deadwood (funny, language, tv, mp3, wtf)
If you take out all the clean language in an episode of Deadwood, you're left with 7 minutes of profanity. These are those 7 minutes, distilled out. From the first season episode which features Mr. Wu. NSFW!
Hymn-Project (audio, music, utilities)
The hymn project provides software to allow you to use your iTunes-purchased music outside of iTunes without loss of quality.
MyCatHatesYou dot com (funny, photos, animals)
Pictures of cats. And they're all dissing you.
Top 75 Network Security Tools (computers, free, security, software)
Big honkin' list of software that can help you secure your computers.
Catapult Watch (weird, gadgets, shopping)
It's the watch you can use to alarm OTHER people.
The Brain Freeze (food, science, funny)
It's a site dedicated to explaining brain freeze (specifically the Slurpee variety). Know the dangers of summer, and be prepared! Watch the amusing video.

Good shotgun this week. I particularly enjoyed Kitchen Myths, QVT, and Lucy in the Sky. That was some weird stuff. I also took the personality test at QVT. I'm an IDsc with a "Lazy Z" profile.
