Want To Feel Stupid?

Posted by: Joselyn Hughes | April 13, 2010 at 5:00PM

I don't usually watch the show Jeopardy! because I don't like to feel like the 19 years of schooling I've been through was completely worthless.

But if YOU do, then you can find every question and answer that's ever aired on the show at J! Archive.

What's that? You want "Transportation" for $100?

A: He's in the record books for making the shortest manned space flight.

Have any idea? I don't, but again, I'm an idiot. If you want, leave your guess at the answer in the comments below.

The Internet Sends Me Cake

Posted by: Carly Hallam | April 5, 2010 at 10:00AM

Sometimes an idea comes along that is so brilliant, you just have to give the creator credit. The Internet Sends Me Cake is one such idea.

Some genius has started this site which revolves around her love for both cake and the Internet. The premise is simple. If you send her a cake, cupcakes, pastries, or pies, she will blog about them by posting pictures and a review.

The craziest part is that strangers are actually partaking in this seemingly one-sided deal. I can't believe anyone would send in a cake or pie to be judged by a random chick online. And what are her credentials for judging these sweets? Besides the fact that she loves them?

You know, guys, I have a love for both the Internet and money. If you send me money, I will take pictures of it and post a review on what your money smells and tastes like. I'll have money and you'll have…recognition?  And everybody will be a winner. That makes sense. Right? Right? Just send the money. We'll figure out the logistics later.

The Internet Sends Me Cake has a preference for "lemon cake with buttercream icing" and I have a preference for one hundred dollar bills. But cupcakes and checks made out to cash will be accepted, respectively.

Porn For Dorks

This site isn't totally safe for work, but that's only if you're a nerd. It's "Moan My IP!" The website that moans — you guessed it — your I.P. address. I can't think of a higher level of dork porn. It's like getting a personalized porn for your laptop! For your actual laptop.

Here's their own explanation of the site:

Finding your IP Address is essential to understanding your Online Privacy. So why not make it fun and sexy? Personal Information about you and your computer is revealed to every Web Site that you visit. This information can be linked with other information and used for things like Identity Theft and other types of Cybercrime.

Right, guys. Cybercrime is WAY sexy, and your explanation makes no sense at all! But who cares? How could you justify a moaning woman's voice reading an I.P. address anyway?

No one ever questioned the pizza delivery guy porn plot, did they? Moan away, computer lady, because someone incredibly dorky out there is actually enjoying this.

Bored At Work?

Posted by: Joselyn Hughes | October 15, 2009 at 3:00PM

If you spend your day staring off into the cubicle wall dreaming of your freedom outside of work, you may have some interest in visiting this site.  Showoffbook.com is an activity-with-instruction-generator site that will help you dream of what you could be doing all day besides rolling your eyes at your coworkers.  So you can read up on this site and once you leave your office, half blinded by computer screens and fluorescent lights, you can go home and actually do all these interesting things!  

Unless, of course, you're exhausted from being so bored at work that you head straight to bed.  I like to say I'm going to get a lot done until I sit on the couch and start watching "My Monkey Baby" on TLC.

But I'm still going to keep "pulling" this little lever on the site and start planning on what I'm going to do (or say I'm going to do) this weekend.  Looks like "skipping a stone" and "walking on my hands" are in my near future.  Exciting!  Or  just watching DVR'd "My Monkey Baby"  episodes.  Skipping stones has nothing on two people putting makeup and a tiny dress on a monkey they consider their child.  Have you guys seen that freakshow?
