Point your mouse cursor anywhere, this site will find someone to point at it

“Finding pointer… Please hold still.” “Pointer located. Pointing…” Priceless words for a priceless website. This site has an endless repository of images with people pointing cheekily to where your mouse cursor is onscreen. What can we say? We are easily amused.

By dAVE inden in Cool Websites on Thursday 21 February 2013

I have a folder in my bookmarks called Time Wasters. It is the first place I go when I have been on my computer for a while and just want to zone out on silliness for a bit, rather get any actual ‘work’ done. The first in this list is Instant Cosby, a full screen […]

You are what you eat, literally

By Kat Heap in New Design on Friday 18 January 2013

I was made aware of Jeremy Wong’s playful approach to Life Buoy Soap’s You Eat What You Touch advertising campaign recently. The pug loaf in particular made me smile. His other work is definitely worth a look, too.

Geocities-izer: optically offending webpages

Max Heath Reader Find

By Max Heath in Cool Websites on Wednesday 21 November 2012

By now, many of us take the modern standard of sleek, streamlined web design for granted. The Geocities-izer reminds us things weren’t always so. Named for the defunct host of the most optically offending homepages of all time, it correctly boasts that it will make any webpage look like it was made by a 13 […]

Answers to ‘What the Fuck is Wrong with the World?’

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Thursday 8 November 2012

The next time you go ‘What the fuck is wrong with the world?’, head to this site so you can ask the exact same question and get a randomly-generated answer in MAD CAPS like ‘WHEN AN ANIMAL YOU THINK IS CUTE FUCKING BITES YOU’ and ‘FUCKING BILLS’. You can go on being angry, but the beauty is when you finally resign yourself to the sad, screwed-up state of the world, pick the THIS IS FUCKING DEPRESSING, WTF IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD? option and get greeted with just as irate responses like ‘THERE ARE FUCKING NARWALS’. Well, there’s no pleasing us humans, is there? Enjoy.

Olympic Scrunchies tumblr

Bridget Barnett Contributor

By Bridget Barnett in Cool Websites on Friday 10 August 2012

Not everyone appreciates the 80s hair accoutrement of choice: the Scrunchie (just a few months ago, a Hilary Clinton staff member commented to the press that they wanted to ban her Scrunchie wearing). But, finally, there is blog not only giving due recognition to the fabric-covered elastic hair ties, but also to the vital role they have played in accessorising Olympians. A special shout out must go to giant pink fuzzy Ukrainian Scrunchie, which participated in 1994 Olympic ice-stating. Gold.

Birds with Arms

Keith Greiman Reader Find

By Keith Greiman in Cool Websites on Friday 1 June 2012

Sometimes the dumbest idea is the best idea. Case in point Birdswitharms. This is photoshop at its most inspiring. It is simply tons of photos of birds doctored up to have human arms. I will forever hate myself for not thinking of this first. Thankfully though, somebody else did.

Old gold! Lasagna Cat is one of those sites that never leaves you.

People of Da Hood

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in Cool Websites on Tuesday 1 February 2011

I was ready to hate on People of Da Hood for being another racist, classist meme blog making fun of poor people, but it’s actually mostly just pictures of weird-looking people doing weird things. Some of the images I don’t even really get, like the guy shoveling sand/salt onto icy roads out of the back of truck. Why is that funny? Am I missing something?

Tracking Life’s Little Idiosyncrisies on Index Cards

Contributions Reader Find

By Merzipan in Cool Websites on Thursday 27 January 2011

The tagline on the This Is Indexed blog says that its little graphical representations of interesting or funny everyday correlations are published ‘weekday mornings as the coffee brews’. Really, the perfect time for a petit-four-sized bit of life analysis. Some days are better than others, but I’ve found myself going there often for a little […]

Our friends over at Crank Texts have done it again. The guys send out text messages ‘to total strangers’, then publish the confused, yet surprisingly engaged responses that come back. This one, in several parts (see below), charts a trip to, well, you know where.
