let’s at least get a blog out of today

Tuesday 2 March 2010

So today was a particularly unproductive day, but I decided I should at least get a blog out of how I spent my day, so here are some suggestions on how to spend your (extra) time:

Last night I rediscovered the website MyLifeIsAverage.com (abbreviated MLIA on the site).  People write short little quips about random things that happened in their lives that made them giggle a bit, and hopefully make you giggle a bit, too.  But be warned — it can become addicting!

One post on MLIA took me too this great youtube video:

Also, after watching the TV show The Big Bang Theory last night, I had to find out if this t-shirt really exists, and I’m happy to say, it does!  Personal Soundtrack Shirt

The website with the soundtrack shirt also had a Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock t-shirt, which got me thinking about possibilities for RPS type games with any odd number of possibilities, and that took me to a website by David Lovelace which has RPS games of 7, 9, 11, 15, 25, and 101 choices to choose from!  There is even an online flash game to play, solo or with a friend!  (Unfortunately, it only goes up to 25.)

And finally, the site cleverbot.com was suggested at one point, where you can apparently have a conversation with a robot/artificial intelligence, but I didn’t have any luck: In fact, I asked it “How can I be more productive?” and I simply got the response, “You are not real.”  Obviously, MLIA.
