…It’s Website Wednesday: Mark On Air Tran?

Mark On Air Tran

Mark Malkoff likes to live in places. Weird places. Corporate sponsored places.

Recently, he spent 30 days flying around on Air Tran flights to highlight their new in-flight wi-fi. During those 30 days, he transferred planes on the tarmac and wasn’t aloud to even enter an airport. He also set the Guinness Book of World Records for most scheduled flights in one month with 135.

Of course he had to keep himself entertained, so he took on a variety of challenges including this one:

Past experiences that Mark has taken on include spending 30 days inside of an IKEA, and visiting 171 Starbucks in a single day.

…White Zone is not for the claustrophobic?

White Zone

White Zone challenges you to get out of a room that contains just a TV, two chairs and a dresser using nothing more than your mouse and your brain.

Think you can do it?

…It’s Website Wednesday: The Universal Record Database?

Universal Record Database

Are you trying to be the best in the world at something? Do you want to recognize that achievement by setting a world record?

If so, then let the Universal Record Database know, because they’re trying to become the definitive site for human achievements.

Current records include the most images of fish sandwiches looked at in one minute (25), the most American quarters fit inside a belly button (6) fastest singing of American Sign Language alphabet by a hearing individual (11.79 seconds) and more, and each comes with either photographic or video proof of the achievement, such as this video of the fish sandwich image record:

Once a record is set, users can then rate that record, and challenges can be made if you think you’re up to it.

So what are you waiting for? Participation is strongly encouraged.

…It’s TGI Friday: Karoshi Suicide Salaryman?

Karoshi Suicide Salaryman

Karoshi (Japanese for “death by overwork”) Suicide Salaryman is definitely not your usual Flash game.

In this game many things are not what you’d expect and the goal of each level is counter-intuitive: you need to die.

There are 50 levels (and a boss fight at the end), and each level presents a new challenge. There will be several objects around you that you can use to get the job done, but their exact use won’t always be apparent. Plus, as the game progresses, it starts to break its own rules to keep things interesting.

Can you help your character to his ultimate demise, or will his survival signal your failure?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Baseball Boss?

Baseball Boss

Baseball Boss is like a Fantasy Baseballer’s dream come true.

Designed to be the ultimate interactive baseball game, users can create teams using real major league players from 1907 or 2007, and then test and tweak those teams until they’re the best that they can be.

Once a team has been assembled, players can then challenge other players in real games, and using a combination of chance and statistics, a computer determines the winner.

New features are constantly being added, and it’s made by Challenge Games, who also developed Duels, so you know it’s going to have some great support behind it.

Are you ready to step up to the plate?
