CrapAndCrapability stinks worse than ever

It looks like the personal hygiene remedies recommend by Google in March did not do the trick as it now suggest stronger remedies like Industrial Odor Control.


Wanted: Toilet flushers

A lot of crap went down the drains when the Cajundome and Convention Center was used as a refugee center during the hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The managers of the Cajundome wants to make sure the plumbing systems are working properly and are looking for volunteers toilet flushers to spend 15 to 20 minutes flushing toilet paper down the 220 or so toilets and testing the urinals.

The worst crap you got for Christmas?

The worst crap I got for Christmas 2005 was several boxes of chocolate. I keep getting them every year and end up leaving them with my parents as the luggage is overweight enough as it is on the way home. I had a major cleaning operation last year and threw away several unopened boxes from last milennium...
The worst crap I gave? I expected it to be a set of perfumes I bought but it turned out to be a HP Photosmart digital camera I bought for my mum. It charges just fine but it refuses to turn on when I open the cover :-(  What a crap way to spend Christmas: opening support tickets with HP and the site that sold me the camera.

(P.S. I posted this a week late due to "practical problems")

How to get rich on the internet

First the million dollar home page:

Now this:

This one red paperclip is currently sitting on my desk next to my computer. I want to trade this one red paperclip with you for something bigger or better, maybe a pen, a spoon, or perhaps a boot. If you promise to make the trade I will come and visit you, wherever you are, to trade. I'm going to make a continuous chain of 'up trades' until I get a house.

Believe it or not; he has already traded up from the paper clip to a snowmobile...


Find the female bird

Look at the image of the two birds below and try to discover which one is female. Difficult as it may sound, most people men should solve the problem in no time even if they are not trained ornithologists...

Thanks Matteo
