As someone who cooks based on what’s in his kitchen and usually I mix and match a lot of garbage, this site is damn useful to find tasty recipes based on what’s in your kitchen.

www.supercook.com

Really really bloody useful.

radiosure RadioSure combs the analog world for real radio stations from all over the world and easily listened to on your desktop from anywhere. Not only does it have 12000+ radio stations available for listening but it’s got a nifty feature to allow you record and it will automatically splice the songs between ads and label it accordingly. And lightweight as hell to boot.

SICK!

Check it out at www.radiosure.com

The crap that people say these days:

http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/ – New Yorkers talk a lot of crap.

http://www.overheardintheoffice.com/
– Water cooler talk you wish wasn’t posted.

http://www.overheardatthebeach.com/
– Chillin, nada to do but talk shit at the beach, stupid shit.

http://www.celebritywit.com/
– Celebrities are an amazingly educated bunch.

http://www.overheardeverywhere.com/
– Like the aforementioned but from Everywhere!

http://mydrunktexts.com/
– Friends shouldn’t let friends drunk text, let alone post it into infamy!

http://textsfromlastnight.com/index.html
– Drunk, horny and plain retarded texts. Fkn great entertainment though, my favourite of the pack.

http://notalwaysright.com/
– Work at a shop? Get a reminder of why the customer is not always right and more often than not a complete moron.

So Wolfram Alpha the hyped up computational knowledge machine (aka Skynet) released today and I was pretty impressed. Although I can’t find myself using it in any regularity as I don’t find myself asking myself what the height of Mount Everest is divided by the length of the Golden Gate Bridge very often. Unless I’m doing a pop quiz with a deadline I can find much the same information through the google tab on the top left of my browser, without having to type in the ridiculously long name wolframalpha! Until they allow you to upload your own data and have it graph it for you and do regression and other funky stuff, I’m just going to keep this on the backburner.

Definitely worth watching out for and checking out though – www.wolframalpha.com

omegle
So last night bored as a bat I tried out Omegle.com, a web based chat service that randomly connects you a one on one chat with a stranger.

Surprisingly I haven’t seen this concept tried before and it’s quite good fun.

A couple of interesting highlights –
A male stranger who started off the conversation with “I need buttsex”.
A 31 year old swedish stranger who attempted to prank me as ‘Daphne the Armenian villager from Ptzuk’, a quick wiki search rendered her full of it very quickly and after a good conversation I got to pranking myself as Burunsi the Ethiopian gun smuggler.
A 20 year old brasilian girl who started off the conversation with “I need a husband” who I planned my future wedding with.
