Fun Stumbles

Okay. I’ve been stumbling across these sites for three weeks. But I really need to do something else when I’m bored. (Some FUN things in here.)

Cool Stuff Stumbles:

Unique staircases. Includes the one from Loretto chapel, one where there is no center to step on, one where each step is a drawer, retractables, etc.

See your brain play tricks on your eyes. Very cool! You stare at a dot for 30 seconds and then you bring the mouse over the picture. It changes to a photograph and looks like it is in color. But the photograph is black and white.

Reverse speech makes me want to tape myself and listen to it backwards. What might I actually be saying?

How to Ace Your Finals Without Studying is an interesting discussion of holistic learning. I do not think, however, that it is useful at two a.m. the night before your test.

How to Talk to a Professor is pretty short and, I would have thought, obvious. But apparently not.

Toilets from Around the World asks, Ever been sitting on the tv watching the couch thinking about how people from other parts of the world pee? Er, no. But there are some funky urinals. Very funky. The naked man soap dispenser is twisted. The urinals with women’s pics over them are FUNNY.

Seven Abandoned Wonders of America, fascinating stuff

Honey and Cinnamon cure everything in the world. Heart trouble, bladder infections, hair loss, and weight problems.

WEIGHT LOSS: Daily in the morning 1/2 hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one-cup water. If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.

Er, how much honey and cinnamon? Can I use the bark and not the powder? Do I need real cinnamon or will that fake stuff do?

History Stumbles:

Death Tidbits including:
Paul Revere was the fist person to ever identify a body by dental records. He recognized the dead man because of work he had done joining two teeth together with silver wire.
A few months before he got killed in a car accident, James Dean made a driver’s safety TV ad in which he said, “Drive safely; the life you save may be mine.”

Lincoln-Kennedy assassination comparisons

Medieval Demographics Made Easy… Maybe I should review this. But the cities I am writing of are HUGE.

The History Place. I especially liked the photos of Native Americans.
