Websites you’ll visit once (maybe twice)

When I happen across a site with a uniquely absurd purpose, useful in the remotest likelihood I’ll need it again but not useful enough to remember, I save it. I’ve decided to share the best of the feckless bookmark bunch with you for humorous purposes,

Effectively Dating for Socks, you loose one sock or find another? This is the place to reunite them. It’s quite scarey the distances that socks manage to travel without their owners.

I don’t know how accurate other people need to me but usually I get away with the 12 places on my calculator. The guys either had a lot of hot linking problems or has made so many index pages so it gets more hits on the adsense. Bypass the junk indexes to the number here

Have you ever been watching a television series and felt its still going despite now being completely interesting? The urban phrase used for this occasion is that it has “jumped the shark”, it comes from during the series Happy Days when ‘The Fonze’ jumps a shark to try and hike up ratings. See also “Nuke the Fridge”.

Aria, as in Opera. Opera is a dramatic work which combines a text (called a libretto) and a musical score, it is also a rather good internet browser, this site is about music. You never know you might want to look up the Le Nozze di Figaro from the Shawshank Redemption.

Similar to Google Maps but on the moon, will be very useful when we get a moonbase like our parents were promised in the 70s and 80s. You’ll be able to plan you journey from your residential bubble to your friends with exact directions and timings, although at 1/6th Earths gravity you might be able to get there a little quicker.

Five websites with just enough information to entertain you but not really enough to make you check everyday. Drop a comment to let me know if you actually make use of them.

Harlequin Disco

In an aid to raise Funds for her Jambo-fee Merry has organised a Disco near enough to Saint Patrick’s Day for the theme to be green. Since the Disco has been done with some help from her Ranger Guide unit my fair lady will be there, and having beautiful red hair you know she’s going to look good dressing in theme!

This is also a good excuse for many Go Jammers to get together and party so hopefully the attendance will make a large reduction on the amount she is lacking. At meagre £s;5 for entry you know that its not all going to her as the hall has to ask for something, then there is the disk jockey and then….

I was happy to be there, although I didn’t see the point of her inviting other participants, I mean if they give £s;5 to her, and she gives them £5 for going to their barbecue (or whatever) then they’ve both ended up with the same amount anyway. Alas I suppose you at least get the evening together.

It was a goodnight, good songs (with the DJ needing a little prompting) slightly small drinks provided by courteous bar staff. Eventually Colin and I got fed-up of that so when into the main bar for a pint of Coke each, boy we got some funny looks and eventually got told to leave was our “party of people” were supposed to stay in our room. Pft.

Well here’s hoping that this little shindig helped the cause, I don’t wear a feather boas just for fun you know!

Some take it too far

The word fan means to be an enthusiastic devotee, a follower, or admirer of a sport, pastime, celebrity or activity. It originally comes from the word fanatic which means: a person with an extreme and uncritical enthusiasm or zeal.

I will admit to being a fan, many people would, however how many people who say they are fans are infact fanatics?

This video for example: Warp Factor Love a chap singing about going beyond a fictional speed limitation and fall in love.

To make matters psychologically worse for this man he has been given a stoke to his ego by having an entire documentary made about him. AUTO DESTRUCT: One Man’s Obsession With William Shatner.

Firstly, do either of these things help him actually fall in love which seems to be a priority for him? He’s making a song that is only going to be an aphrodisiac to an incredibly select group, change the lyrics to faster than 90 miles an hour, throw a couple of ‘bade’ words in and you’re set. Can you really just keep talking about one thing over and over?

There are much better things to do like going on camps….. 😎
