…I Wish I Were The Moon?

I Wish I Were The Moon

If you enjoyed Majesty of Colors, then I Wish I Were The Moon should be right up your alley.

The goal of the ‘game’ is to find all eight possible endings for the strange love triangle (and one ‘secret’ ending) by taking a snapshot of something and then moving it around on the screen.

The graphics and sounds are rather simple (though soothing) and the goal is more about discovery than ‘beating’ the game, so if you enjoy a game that is as much art as it is game, then see if you can solve this puzzle.

…Cheese racing looks like fun?

Cheese Racing

Cheese Racing is a sport that was pioneered back in 1997, when someone discovered that processed cheese slices thrown on the BBQ will actually boil inside of their plastic pouches, inflating the bag and baffling the mind.

The rules are simple:

  • Each player throws a slice of cheese onto the BBQ.
  • The player whose cheese fully inflates first wins!

The CRASS (Cheese Racing Association) has a full set of rules, but if you follow those two, you’ll pretty much guarantee a fair fight.

Also, though their have been zero fatalities so far from cheese racing, you must keep in mind that this is an extremely dangerous sport, and not one that should ever be attempted indoors.

Gentlemen, start your cheese slices!

…Scientists study strange things?

Sexy Chicken

Though science is responsible for many of the greatest discoveries ever made, it’s not always so serious.

Oddee put together a list of the 10 Most Bizarre Scientific Papers, and despite the topic of study, each was a serious paper, conducted by serious scientists with serious tests and serious results.

Want to know what the effect of country music is on suicide?

Done. (It does.)

Want a comprehensive list of foreign bodies that have been found inside of people’s rectums?

Done. (Among the items: A frozen pig’s tail.)

Want to know if chickens prefer beautiful humans?

Done. (They Do.)

Seriously.

…Amie Street wants to change the way you buy music?

Amie Street

Amie Street is a new way of purchasing music online that “combines the best elements of social networking, online music retail and discovery engines”. Independent artists can promote and sell their DRM free music, and fans can explore, recommend and buy that music. All songs start out free, and the price rises (up to a max of 98 cents) as the song becomes more popular. That way, new stuff gets discovered and expensive stuff is probably going to be worth the cost. When a user finds a song they like, they can recommend it to their friends, and earn credits towards future music purchases as the song rises in popularity. It’s definitely an interesting concept, and one that I like a lot. Hopefully more publishers will come to realize that they need to change the way people buy music.
