ultimate SW figure collection

now do I get the prize for this week's best link to a SW site ? 549 figures in their box. Most devoted site like this I've seen. Unbelievable. Wow.

You're a grown man. What's with all the Toys dude ?

... lifelong obsession with collecting little plastic men...

top this "first day at work" incident !

At the end of my first day, I back out of my parking space and accidentally hit a Lexus parked behind me. Oh great, my first day at work, and I dent somebody's fancy car. I leave a note of apology on the windshield, with my name, email address, phone number, and a promise to pay for whatever repairs are necessary.

The next day, I come to work, and I have a new email message.

From Bill Gates.

Oh my God, I dented Bill Gates' car.

Fortunately, he said not to worry about it.

luring couch potatoes to go biking

Trek and Giant and Raleigh are building some new bikes that are designed to be very simple, fun, easy to ride. They want to bring back the fun memories of riding as a kid. I love the look of Trek's Lime. It would be perfect for nipping to the shops etc.

Now you can tell if someone is not smiling hard enough, as there is software to tell how well you are smiling rating from 0 to 100%...

I'm sure to put in a suggestion to add an enhancement to include an appropriate emoticon smiley... :D

Smile Measurement Software [via Gizmodo]

Take the Internet(r) with you whever you go - it fits in your pocket ! Surely this is fake, please tell me it is.

Google dude likes having his photo taken

and he has gotten quite a decent list of known faces to have their photo taken with him at the googleplex. "Tan Chade-Meng, a geeky fellow with a big smile" is his gallery

Even the NYT has an article on him

At Google, Mr. Tan has a reputation as a top-flight engineer. But he is also known for his fondness for one-liners and for being a regular contributor to the company’s online humor groups. The job title on his business card reads: “Jolly Good Fellow (which nobody can deny).”

“In my free time, I do engineering,” he said.

Mr. Tan gets tips by e-mail or phone a few days before a famous person arrives. No one has turned him down yet.

Way to go Mr. Tan.
