Cock and Balls Salt and Pepper Set

Fab has this jolly nose-shaped pepper grinder, and SF suggested that the pepper should actually come out of a butt.

The next natural step was to twist the balls to get the pepper out. And finally salt comes out the penis. How could this not sell?

The snobbery gradient

I've had two completely separate conversations in the last couple of weeks about the advisability of importing beer you can't get in San Francsico and then selling it (this is totally illegal) at a huge mark-up.

How awesome is this business?


Let's assume we're going to drive the beer from Michigan (for example) to SF in a minivan, and then sell it at a 100% markup (assuming we have to buy it at full retail price).

It's 2,262 miles from SF to Kalamazoo.

We can drive 8 hours per day, need to eat three meals per day, and stay in a motel each night.

Metalike and Node Knockout

I participated in Node Knockout, a 48-hour Node.js hackathon/competition as a solo team.

My intent was to learn node by failing, and I think I succeeded. My entry, Metalike is full of fail, and barely works, but I have a much better understanding of node, it's ecosystem, and what I need to work on the become more useful as a JavsScript developer.

You can still click through to my team page and vote for me if you want to!

Backwards compatible casual games

The problem with multiplayer (or massively-multiplayer) casual games is that at some point after release, everyone moves on to the next big thing and they become empty wastelands. Crickets. Tumbleweeds.

I propose that a games publisher release a series of games where the actions in the most recently released games are translated into actions in the previous game.

Bromance Novel

Romance novels are the largest and most profitable segment of the publishing industry. This is kind of sexist - where are the bromance novels? The committee suggested a great name for a bromance novel imprint: Porterhouse.

Electric Digeridoo

Not just a digeridoo with a microphone in it, but something with a pickup similar to the wind controller of a digital saxophone.

Maybe these guys would be willing to take on the challenge of making thongcks a reality?

I pay $60/quarter for garbage pick up. We have the smallest trash can they offer - a 20 gallon bucket - and hence, the lowest rate, but we still only fill it up once a month. So what should be $5/pick up or about $0.17/gallon of trash instead costs us $20/pick up or about $0.67/gallon in practice.
