The Complete and Utter Idiot's Guide to Ordering Pizza is a bit advert-heavy, but a funny read.

Can you remember back to before the Playstation 2 was launched, and there were rumours that it could be used to make a supercomputer? I can certainly remember chuckling over the idea and dismissing it as games-console pre-release hype. Well the National Center for Supercomputing Applications [NCSA] seem to have taken the concept a bit more seriously, so much so that they have gone ahead and built a parallel computer from 65 Playstation 2 units!

"Home Theatre" is one of those slippery terms; it seems to be defined as "whatever I watch my films on". This is demonstrated perfectly by the fact that I found this disaster linked from the same "Show off your system" page as the amazing CINEMAX.

Rotating Snakes by Akiyoshi Kitaoka has to be one of the most effective and disconcerting optical illusions I've ever seen. I shall reproduce the warning from his main page in it's entirety:
Caution: This page contains some works of "anomalous motion illusion", which might make sensitive observers dizzy or sick. Should you feel dizzy, you had better leave this page immediately.
Don't say you weren't warned!

Dem bones, Dem bones, Dem Bone Clones. Fantastic. If they didn't cost so much I'd have one of these on my garage roof.

Andy Goldsworthy seems to me to have a rather unusual way of expressing his talent - he goes out into the world, finds things, makes art from them, and finally photographs what he has done. I've always had a soft spot for transient art, and Andy's work has captivated me. I couldn't find a single site with a big collection of his stuff, but a Google image search turned up some real gems. There is also a good article about him and his work on the BBC Arts website.

If you are worried that no-one is paying any attention to your emails, try adding a generous sprinkling of the words on this list. That way even if, as you suspect, your friends are ignoring you, the Feds will be hanging on your every word. Everyone's a winner, baby.

You are what you eat - more fun at the expense of all those silly foreign folks.

Got a Nokia phone? You might be advised to read this. If you haven't, read it anyway, and chuckle quietly to yourself.

Church promotional signs with a sense of humour? At a real Church? Hell yes! This is the same guy who runs Motorcycle Funerals with a sidecar hearse that has been tested on the Isle of Man TT course! It's a terrific idea, and perfect for the many dedicated bike nuts out there - shame the police don't always agree. All round cool guy, he gets my vote.
