Votergasm encourages (horny) citizens to vote via the cliched (but effective) form of ancient bribery/blackmail: the promise of (or threat of withholding) sex. On thier site, you can pledge to, at the very least, withhold sex from nonvoters for a week; or, at the most, promise to have sex with a voter on election night, and withhold sex from nonvoters for four years. You can even search for votergasm “parties” in your area — the perfect forum for hooking up with a fellow voter…ensuring the fulfillment of your pledge.
While interestingly kinky, I worry that the playout of this would be less than sexy. I can imagine meeting the man of my dreams, and, entwined in a sweaty embrace, having to whisper in his ear: “Hey, did you vote?”
Came across a cute post at The Design Fort for proposed packaging for individually wrapped pickles. Hilarious. What makes this particularly endearing is that I just find pickles to be a funny food. Turns out, there are a few foods that tickle me, and I’ve determined that tickly foods must possess two essential properties:
- They must have a funny-sounding name.
- They must be associated with American culture.
Other amusing foods: Any Hostess cake (e.g., Twinkies, Ding Dongs)… SPAM (despite the fact that I’m a vegetarian, I’m quite enamoured with SPAM…I’ve even considered buying the SPAM earrings). Note that both of the aforementioned properties must be present in order to make me giggle: a Hershey’s Bar may be quite American…but the name is boring; Cous cous is pretty funny-sounding, but is not American kitsch.
Can anyone think of other foods that meet these conditions?
Octodog’s Frankfurter Converter: turn any ordinary hot dog into an little octopus for your culinary amusement. Wierd, kinda gross, and the how-to page looks just plain kinky. I want one.
I finally convinced by ex to make a blog — he’s a brilliant writer and loves to argue with people (especially about politics). Not that I have a large audience, but I thought I’d plug him on my blog anyway…so, read him and comment on his blog…make him feel loved.
I put a little chess game on my website. You need java to play it…and you can download a copy of the game for your very own to put on your webserver as well. Sweet! 🙂
Christopher Reeve, of Superman fame, dies at 52 in a coma after a cardiac arrest. The loss of this beautiful man makes my heart ache. Good night, Christopher.
Nice tip from mozillatips.com:
Type “about:config” in the addressline, and you will be taken to a page listing several hundred options. Some of them are very useful. Bold lines indicate that their settings is [sic] different from default. You can disable functions that websites use to close, move or resize windows, remove your toolbars or the systembuttons (maximize, minimize etc.). You can unfreeze frames and a lot more.
