Hobbies Destroyed by Technology

Cute Girl Sep 1, 2011

For the record, I'm not a Luddite. I dig technology. I really do. But, dammit, some of the things from "the good old days" were just flat out better. Don't argue with me, son. I'll prove it to you.

1. Reading Paper Books
Amazon.Com reported selling 22 million eBooks in 2010. It was the first - and it won't be the last - year that Amazon sold more eBooks than "real" books. Meanwhile, libraries have resorted to hiring actual corpses, finding them more than capable of handling current visitor counts.

2. Making a Mix-Tape
I lost my V on Valentine's Day. I gave her a mix-tape that I made on a "boom box". She was very appreciative. From what my little brothers tell me, sharing iTunes playlists (today's equivalent of a mix-tape) isn't nearly as effective.

  • Forever free power suply to more than 500 social projects.
  • Every citizen can get monthly 2000/- for 60 yrs.

20 Abandoned Cities from Around the World

Sunny Jul 19, 2011

There are many reasons why cities are abandoned; some, like the ghost towns of the American West, have become tourist destinations while others have been condemned or simply forgotten. These 20 abandoned cities of the world share an eerie, haunted quality that is part of what makes them so fascinating. For more amazing abandoned places by region visit the WebUrbanist abandonments archive.

1. The Kowloon Walled City was located just outside Hong Kong, China during British rule. A former watchpost to protect the area against pirates, it was occupied by Japan during World War II and subsequently taken over by squatters after Japan’s surrender. Neither Britain nor China wanted responsibility for it, so it became its own lawless city.

Its population flourished for decades, with residents building labyrinthine corridors above the street level, which was clogged with trash. The buildings grew so tall that sunlight couldn’t reach the bottom levels and the entire city had to be illuminated with fluorescent lights. It was a place where brothels, casinos, opium dens, cocaine parlors, food courts serving dog meat and secret factories ran unmolested by authorities. It was finally torn down in 1993 after a mutual decision was made by British and Chinese authorities, who had finally grown wary of the unsanitary, anarchic city and its out-of-control population.

Clever Ideas Worth Knowing

Sunny Jul 17, 2011

(I didn't know that!)

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold.

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
