Accident, n.: A condition in which presence of mind is good, but absence of body is better…

Happy Halloween, for all you people who like that sort of thing. I bumped someone else when I was reversing this morning – another ute/pickup, I really know how to pick’em, don’t I? – and I left a note but I can’t tell what was there before and what I might have done. No scratches on my little red car though, and it’s practically made of tin foil, so my boss made me go take the note back so I wouldn’t end up paying to fix this other guy’s 20 years worth of scratches because I’m so gullible… trick or treat, eh?

Enough of what a bad driver on the road I am – here are the sights (or sites?) of this week’s drive around the Internets…

1) Continuing the dog theme of previous weeks, so very well matched it’s scary – check out these winners of the “I Look Like My Dog” competition

2) If you ever needed more proof that science can do pretty much anything weird or stupid, and that Americans are all crazy, here’s some – here’s the archive of America’s Goofiest Patents. Bear in mind as you view that these were all APPROVED. Yes, they passed the test. Whatever test it is. *Shudder*…

3) Finally, a Halloween salute – from those educational folks at CommonCraft, designers of the handy RSS in plain english, wikis in plain english, etc… I bring you “Zombies in Plain English”.

  1. I particularly liked the “Fanny Fan” on the strange inventions site. Obviously funnier if you live in a country where “fanny” means front bottom…! erk.
