Just a few pictures of some strange toys I’ve seen lately… Does anything about this toy seem strange? Perhaps the fact that Goliath is one of the characters in a series labeled “Almighty Heroes”? I guess the way that I’ve always heard and read the story was wrong. Apparently Goliath was the hero of theContinue reading “Strange Toys”

Brown Paper Bags
Are the brown paper bags really fooling anybody anymore? I think at this point, if you see someone walking down the street drinking from a small paper sack, it’s fairly obvious what’s in the bag. In fact, it would probably be more inconspicuous to carry it without the sack.
Drying Your Hands Should Not Be This Difficult
For some reason, a roll of paper towels on a horizontal rack is one of the most frustrating things that I repeatedly encounter in the bathroom. Is there anything more frustrating that standing there with soaking wet hands, pawing and clawing at a cheap roll of thin paper towels? It’s hard enough to find theContinue reading “Drying Your Hands Should Not Be This Difficult”
I was recently at a nursing home, waiting for the nurse to check on something, and was looking for something to keep me busy while I waited. So I began reading the signs on the wall. Mostly normal stuff…until I got to the list of codes that they use in case of emergency. Most ofContinue reading “Code…Yellow?”
A Battery Ribbon Epiphinization
I think I had an epiphany yesterday. If an epiphany is the sudden realization that up until this point, I have been completely clueless as to how something works, then yeah, I totally epiphanized. You know those little ribbons that they sometimes put in the battery compartments of electronics and such? They are apparently soContinue reading “A Battery Ribbon Epiphinization”

Just another quality product from the local Dollar Tree. As amazing as this thing is, I still think it wouldContinue reading “One Magic Towel”
Bike Lane? What Bike Lane?
It seems like there are cyclists everywhere you go around here. So many, in fact, that there are bike lanes on nearly every road. The only problem with that is the fact that a lot of the cyclists don’t care to use their lanes. So if the cyclists are going to use the car lanesContinue reading “Bike Lane? What Bike Lane?”
Just Add Water
Found this amazing toy at Dollar Tree…steak, seafood, and growing whales – they have it all! Gotta love the instructions on this thing. Anything that instructs “Amazing Fun” is okay by me.
Delicious Dollar Deals
Who says you can’t put together a fancy meal on a budget? Just head to your local Dollar Tree store for steak, shrimp, and salmon. You’ll be the envy of all your friends…until they take a bite of the steak, shrimp, and salmon and realize that it was way overpriced.
Super Special School Supplies
Saw this at Wal-Mart the other day. Surely that can’t be right, can it? 3 bucks for a single page school supply list? The only explanation I can think of is that they are printed on unfurled unicorn horns with octopus ink.
