5 Funny Or Die Web Series Worth Watching

Funny Or Die is a comedy website focused on videos, which means you can add it to the list of worthy YouTube alternatives. The name of the site comes from the very simple idea that something should either be funny or die. If a piece of content isn’t funny then let it pass away, quietly, without a funeral. And you, the viewer, gets to choose its fate.

12 Free Music Albums: The Rock Edition [Sound Sunday]

Your typical edition of Sound Sunday lulls you in with easy to digest albums and gradually eases you into more challenging and unconventional material. This week we turn the order upside down and start close to where we left last week; with metal and hard rock. A great edition to let off some steam and then drift into calmer rock genres; with alternative, indie rock and post rock.

5 Awesome DIY Tablet Mounts For Bed: Vote For The Best And We’ll Build It

I love my iPad so much, I take it to bed with me – and I don’t think I’m alone (69% of British iPad owners also do, it seems). But resting it on my chest is far from ideal – I get neck cramps trying to look at the peculiarly angled screen, I certainly can’t type, and any attempt to move knocks the thing right over. Since my significant other usually doesn’t care for being face-palmed by an iPad while half asleep, it’s about time I did something about it.

Rethinking The Business Card

The business card is a ubiquitous sight in any business meeting. The first documented use of them can be tracked to Japan in the 15th Century. These formal royal announcements, known as ‘meishi’, were distributed amongst the local community as a sign of a potential visit. The use of cards as formal announcements was later adopted by aristocrats in 17th Century France.

6 Unsolved Mysteries Solved On Wikipedia

Wikipedia is often mocked for its perceived lack of truth. Because it’s an encyclopedia built entirely on the contributions of random people, it has a reputation for not always being accurate and truthful. In some ways this assertion is fair… little-known entries (such as those for people you’ve likely never heard of) can be manipulated by pranksters or editors with an agenda, but it’s far from the norm, especially on popular, oft-visited entries.

The Best Twitter Vine Videos Created So Far

Short films can be truly amazing. Like the best short stories, short films often pack more meaning into their brief running times than full-length movies (or novels) do. There’s something about the genre that compels those who revel in it to make one really strong, overarching point, and to do so in a very short space of time. Short films can be anything up to 40 minutes long, but most are considerably shorter than that.

Is Buying Second-Hand Software Legal?

This is by no means a legal document and don’t think that this substitutes for the opinions of an officer of the court. Let me be clear – I’m going to present to you the research that I’ve done and what it means to me. It is NOT legal advice. Now that is out of the way, lets get to the heart of the matter on whether buying second-hand software legal or illegal.

Wacky Wiki: 6 Fascinating People on Wikipedia

Most people approach Wikipedia as they approach Google: they head there with a search term already in mind. But that approach may mean you miss out on much of what Wikipedia has to offer. It boasts entries that are obscure, odd, offbeat, and unlikely to be seen by more than a handful of people. Welcome to the world of weird Wikipedia.
