Moving pictures … it’s a technological marvel!

Have you ever wondered …

how to electrocute a pickle? No, me neither. However, I can see the benefits. I mean, after a rough day at the office it’s better you electrocute a poor, innocent pickle than Taser some poor, innocent bystander.

Because, as one of my kindly readers pointed out, Tasers kill people.

Wow, who’d have thunk it.

But I digress. Pickles. Want to know how to electrocute one? Watch the video.

Disclaimer: No pickles were harmed in the making of this website. Well, not many.

Talented and funny

Okay, so maybe I’ve been living under a rock because this video has already been on the net for more than a year, but here it is anyway: a surprisingly good cover of Hallelujah, my all-time favourite song (although, I’m a fan of Leonard Cohen’s original rather than Jeff Buckley’s cover).

Oh, and the other thing I like about this? The kid’s funny. He also does a pretty damn good cover of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition.

Holy crap Batman

Need help wiping your butt? Want to avoid the onerous task of scrunching up the paper? Keen to do away with the risky business of thin toilet paper being the only barrier between your fingers and … er … your bum?

Then the Comfort Wipe might be for you. According to its own publicity, the Comfort Wipe is the first improvement to toilet paper since the 1880s (although I reckon more people would class two-ply loo paper as an improvement, but there you go).

And the burning question (no, not THAT burning question, if that’s burning you need a doctor): Does everyone in the household have their own Comfort Wipe? I hope so because I’m already creeped out enough by the idea of anyone else using my toothbrush!

Reliving the 80s

Here’s another one some of you might be too young to remember: Tetris.

Have you ever played it? How about Human Tetris? Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond did just that using a bunch of people, and auditorium and a spot of stop-motion video:

And for those of you who are too young to know Tetris, it’s the original falling blocks game — both simple and addictive.
