A few random things

No theme to this one.

43 Things
Most of us all want to do stuff that we never get around to. This site is a great way to make a list of 43 things and do them, then talk about it with other people who wanted to do those same things. The weird part about the site is the list of suggestions, which range from the warm and fuzzy (plant a garden) to the abjectively strange (get in touch with my inner cheese)

Trunk Monkey
Surprisingly our first site involving monkeys. Spiffy found this one, and I gave him ample opportunity to post it, but he didn't, so I am. This site showcases a clever little auto accessory involving, (wait for it) a monkey in your trunk. (and, says the site, "a steady source of ice cold high-quality import ale or lager") How does it help to have a monkey in your trunk? The site provides a full customer information section let it tell you.

One of my favorite sites ever. You get to create a little geometric beasty, then play around with it in an accurate physics simulation. Make walkers, crawlers, swingers, slitherers or hoblers, then flip them onto their backs and see how they manage. It's amazing to see how lifelike these things move.
