Walk Like a Geocacher

January 3, 2011

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache in the world, pinpoint its location using GPS technology and then share the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone with a GPS device can then try to locate the geocache.

This clip from the movie Splinterheads is the best explanation I’ve seen so far:

For Those Already in the Geo-Know…

This would be PERFECT for the geocaching theme song! I totally cracked when I saw the  geocacher’s reaction to the “muggles” part (been there done that)! These folks did an OUTSTANDING job on this vid…

or you can look at it as playing pirates with treasure maps like you did when you were a kid. just now it is electronic based. and it’s not just kids playing.

Think YOU Can Fly a Helicopter?

I got this lil gem from a friend who sent it via email…. and OMG!!! OMG! Make it stop! Make ME stop!!!!

It started off so simple….

THINK YOU CAN FLY A HELICOPTER???


Read directions first before you start…


Hold the left mouse button down to go up…


release to go down…MOST DIFFICULT


Some people have worn their finger out on this…

If you are working for a living, do not forward to

your co-workers…

The rest of the day will be useless to the

company…

Think you can fly a helicopter???

Just For Fun…

August 15, 2007

Sometimes we have those moments when we just wanna have a lil fun… goof off….play around… waste some time…indulge is mindless (or mind-numbing) entertainment.

Perhaps I am feeling just a tad stressed… perhaps my co-worker in the next cubicle is smacking gum, humming some super-annoying tune, or maybe is one of those people who whistle through there nose… or maybe…. just maybe… you really can’t stand the person, and you NEED to relieve some stress… yet wouldn’t mind annoying them back. Well… here you have it! While some people seem to need expensive therapy, I believe in popping bubble wrap… virtual bubble wrap that is.

Perpetual Bubble Wrap: Simply roll your mouse over the bubble wrap to see and hear a satisfying “pop” as the bubble burts… and the bubbles come right back…

For a more traditional bubble wrap popping experience, try this next site… and may I suggest using the “manic mode”…. (there is also a link there for a more..um..”disturbing” version”

Now maybe I’m in the middle of a blog, a Twitter, or some other IM, and just wanna throw people off for a second, I can always start flipping my text upside down.

This is a fun little app that seems to work well most places I’ve tried, however, it does NOT play well with Pownce. Try text flipping here. lɯʇɥ˙dılɟ\ɯoɔ˙pɐɟʌǝɹ˙ʍʍʍ\\:dʇʇɥ

So go on… do some flips… pop some bubble wrap… have some fun!
