Hilarious Japanese style Candid Camera action, that they could never get away with doing in America. Keep watching, as they change the prank a bit towards the end of the video, making it even better.
My husband told me a story tonight of this poor starving guy that can't afford to buy himself food.
My husband has been taking food to this guy about every other day, for awhile...pizza, sandwiches, dinners, etc...from the restaurant he works in.
Tonight my husband brings him a pizza and the guy hands him a case of New England style clam chowder (the white kind)...tells my husband to take it home. Then he says he has tons more cases upstairs.
Some woman gave them to him...cases and cases of the stuff, all the same flavor, and he is getting sick of the stuff. So now he's trading the clam chowder for other food, and rewarding those that have been kind to him, like my husband, with a case each.
So now I have this case of clam chowder sitting in my kitchen. There is only one problem with it...
I gave up eating that kind of stuff because of the fat content in it is too high, and I am the only one in the family that likes the stuff. My daughter prefers the Manhattan style (the red kind).
Oh well...guess I know what my next donation to the community food pantry will be now.
My husband also brought me home a pen with a radio in it. He let someone pay for 2 slices of pizza by swapping the pizza for the pen. It's brand new, still in its package, with earphones, batteries, and all. It doesn't just look like a pen with a radio in it, it really writes.
It's kind of cool, but not something I would use. I'll toss that in the gift drawer for when one of us needs to give someone a gift and can't afford one. I don't know who would want it though, since most people we know can afford and already own ipods.
Humorous Note: Windows Live Writer's spell check dictionary does not contain "ipod".
In an effort to broaden my musical horizons, and discover stuff I may never have heard or heard of before, I have been wandering around on Last.fm.
I discovered a few .mp3 downloads on my suggestions page and decided to look up the artists on Last.fm. One of them had a link to their page on another site.
A marvelous discovery!

Have you ever wondered what 'Hello World' would look like in various programming languages?

Plenty more examples here:
This one is for you, Cailin!
I thought of you and your night time magnet stealing adventures when I saw this one.
And I am still trying to think of who the guy singing it reminds me of. It has to be someone that we all know because Steph says he reminds her of someone too...and she can't figure it out either!
Let's face it...Google has serious flaws as a search engine. It is over-run with bogus pages of keyword lists, links to counterfeit sites, links to other inferior search pages, splogs, sites that try to hijack your browser and load your PC with spyware, and generally crappy unrelated results.
What you are looking for is burried in garbage. In order to find anything decent, related to what you are seeking, you have to set Google to show you 100 results per page instead of the default 10, and spend much more time scanning those results for what you are seeking.
