Time Waster Tuesdays – dispelling rumors and urban legends.

Whoa, looks like I accidentally hit save instead publish on this post.  Sorry for the delay guys!

This weeks time waster is a way to dispell rumors, scams, things of that sort.  You know those “too amazing to be true” articles and forwarded emails that we get?  Well, here is a way to find out if they really are true!

Here is a great example of what I’m talking about.  A few days ago a friend of mind, zmann, sent me this forum post about a mule that kills a mountain lion.  Its a fantastic story, with pictures, I really wanted to believe it was true, but looked it up.  When I looked it up, this is what I found.  Apparently, the pictures are real but the story has been tweaked a bit.  Oh well, maybe next time it will be a real story.

Here is where you can go to look up the internet folklore you want to investigate:  Snopes.com

Sorry to burst your urban legend bubbles.

Speaking English Is Bad For Your Health

For those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION

Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Time Waster Tuesday – 80’s Arcade games

Who’s up for a little gaming?

I work almost entirely on my PC and when I get to a tough problem or issue that I can’t work through at that exact moment… I like to take a quick game breather to sort things out in my head.  Lately, I’ve been playing these 80’s arcade games online to pass the time.  They are a great way to take a short breather or just waste a little time while your professor recounts the first 20 years of his life.

Time Waster Tuesday

Severe back pain is to blame for the delay in this post…but on the brightside while I was in bed I did find a good time waster. 

MIT students are infamous for their pranks and hacks.  I used to think these were all secret and I could only hear rumors about them.  Wrong.  MIT has a gallery of their students’ hacks!  Go Check Them Out.  Very clever, very humorous, and of course a great way to waste some time.

Time Waster Tuesday – Joost

Almost my favorite day of the week… second only to “sleeping in saturday”

Today I want to get into a new service I discovered a few nights ago.  Joost.   Joost is a online service that lets you watch TV shows on-line for free!  I know, it sounds amazing.  They have hours on hours of professional (not user submitted) video.  All kinds of stuff from documentaries to sitcoms.  For those of us who want to watch something decent on a saturday night and don’t own premium cable or a tivo, this is really exciting.  The catch? It is invite only, you have to be invited by someone who is already a member.

Lucky for you I’m already a member.

Give it a try, so far its been a great way to waste some time on my PC.

Only drawback is, sometimes the quality is a little poor and variety isn’t too great, but they get new content all the time.  I can only see Joost improving.
