Does This Sound Like a Good Idea to You?

Another great example of awesome design but completely useless in terms of function. There is no way a speaker that size is going to give you the full range of frequencies for any kind of music to sound good. Hell, I have a piece of paper in audio that tells me so. Although, with that being said, it is still a sexy, sexy little idea and I occasionally wish the laws of physics wouldn’t be so stubborn!

Meeting People is Easy

When we look for a partner we want to find someone with the same interests and same goals and same outlook on life. I have, however, never heard of people wanting to find someone with the same diseases and infections to hook up with or spend the rest of their life with.

Enter STDFriends. A website that is as plain as its name: a dating site for people with STD/Is to find other people with STD/Is. You can ever search people by their afflictions and users own STD/Is are shown on their profiles just so everyone’s on the same page. Have a browse, you never know, you may need a website like this in the further (or maybe it is more of a case of ‘already’).

My Feet Are Cold

You know when you want to buy something but cannot bring yourself to buy it out of pure shame? While I love the house I live in, it’s freaken cold upstairs in the winter and I live in beautiful sunny Queensland in Australia where the weather is perfect 98% of the time. So to counter my stupid house and it’s strange version of physics I need a good pair of slippers (because I’d hate to ruin a good pair of socks).

OMG! WIN! (this never happens):

Muk Luks Unisex 'Fireside Casuals' Slipper Socks | Overstock.com…the sheer comfort of socks without the stupid dorky-old person look of slippers. AUD$30. I tell you, this never happens to me, I bet they lose my package in the post.
