Online Highlights 4

I haven’t spent much time browsing the internet lately, but I’ve still managed to collect a few nice links to share with you (see other Online Highlights. Thanks to those who recommended these sites.

The Onion – It’s amazing that I haven’t noticed the onion before. It seems to be a well established phenomenon by now and one I’ve come to appreciate a lot. In short, it’s a news service focused on delivering sarcasm and humour instead of accurate news. Here are three of my favourites (please share yours!):Supreme Court: Death Penalty Is ‘Totally Badass’, Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As ‘Fun, Watchable’, Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard.

The Game of Miscommunication – A wonderful little game in which people alternately draw or write what the previous person drew or wrote.

Heavy Boots –  If you believe that astronauts were able to walk on the moon because they wore heavy boots, perhaps you should read this. And if you don’t think so, this will probably give you a good laugh, tainted with the sad reminder of how ignorant some people are who should know better.

Expats at work: Living abroad gives you an edge -This article in the Economist brings up a study on how living abroad affects creativity. Even though “creativity” is probably the wrong word here, “resourcefulness” or “creativity in problem solving2 would have been more suitable, the study is still interesting. If nothing else, it’s self-gratifying for people like me who live abroad.

Ball stunt – This is an amazing ball stunt of unknown origin. It’s rather short and it has to be watched, so I’ll leave you to it.
