You might find it a little scary to imagine what your yearbook photo would look like if you were in the Class of 1952, or 1974, or 1990. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun to see how other people would look. Yearbook Yourself is a website that let’s you upload anyone’s pic and gander at their theoretical yearbook photo. The hard part is finding a good photo — you need one in which the subject is looking straight at the camera without anything obstructing the face. So, if your photo victim has bangs or is wearing glasses you are out of luck. Once the photo is uploaded simply resize it, make some adjustments, click on the class year you want to see and voila! Not useful, perhaps, but lots of fun.

Who would have thought that cakes could be so funny?! This genius idea for a blog looks at ill-conceived baked items. The cake photos are humorous but it is the stories people write about each cake that had us laughing out loud. (And Spot Cool Stuff does not take to bellowing laughs lightly). Check out some of the cake photos below . . .
We suspect that you’ve never wondered how to quantify the exact side effects of sword swallowing. What is surprising is that some one else has. And that they’ve written a paper on the subject. (Conclusion: “Sword swallowers run a higher risk of injury when they are distracted . . .”). Improbable Research — and its print publication The Annals of Improbable Research — catalog scientific research being conducted into areas that we wouldn’t think any self-respecting scientist would go near. The site navigation is a little confusion to us; if you are just browsing you’d do well to start with the posts about the lg Nobel (a sort of unofficial Nobel prize for improbable research). And please, do not read this site and sword swallow at the same time.
