Kaleidoscope fun

byokal :

Drag and drop shapes, watch the kaleidoscope be created. Doesn’t really do anything else, but it’s fantastic to play with if you like bright colors and shiny things. Which I do.

Technological Advances in Beverages (that never quite made it)

X-Entertainment: Dead Sodas.

You know how certain hard candies contain a liquid center, and how that liquid center is always excessively tangy and causes your face to contort into all kinds of sourpusses? Pepsi Blue was a whole bottle of that.

The entire x-entertainment site is fantastic, really, especially for those of us who grew up in the 80’s. But for some reason, this article on sodas that never quite made it (Pepsi Clear, anyone?) in particular just really amused me.

I never knew I needed to know this. I don’t generally even wear shoes with laces, but I might have to now.

Odd Experiments

Try It Yourself

“Psychic” games, optical illusions to play with, complete with explanations. Pretty interesting.

For our first find, in keeping with the previous post, here’s a Do-It-Yourself Motivational (or Demotivational, as the case may be) generator:

Strange Trivia, Dead Folks, We Have It All

Anomalies Unlimited

I’m not even sure how to describe this. Little bits of info on just about everything that you never really wondered about. Some conspiracy theories explained (or perpetuated), strange trivia (did you know elephants are the only animals other than humans who can stand on their heads?), pictures of famous dead people… it goes on and on. Is it real? Is it fake? No idea, but it’s definitely interesting and a fantastic time waster!
