Many moons ago, anime fans went completely bonkers about whether a particular series should begin with “ah” or “oh”; if only these lists of89 and 95 things had been around to remind people to, in Shatner’s words Get a life!

GothsGardening. Gothic Gardening. Much more interesting than you’d think, and extremely well-written. Particular favorites are the theme gardens, especially The Abortionist’s Garden and The Little Greenhouse of Horrors (although it could do with more information about carnivorous plants). But c’mon – any gardening site with a page on Gardening for Bats gets my approval.

In the U.S., the Friday after Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year. And if you need an excuse to avoid the charging masses, it’s also Buy Nothing Day.

Some silly people thought Cassini was too dangerous to launch because of it’s plutonium power source. Others oppose the hydrogen-bomb-driven Orion spacecraft on more sensible grounds. Everyone, however can agree that we probably were wise not to build the Pluto, afission-reactor-powered cruise missile from the 50’s.

There must be a better corporate naming scheme than taking somerandom noun and sticking “red” in front of it.

Hey Ladies – do you want to know how to snare a mad scientist? Perhaps you feel sympathetic to these men. Still shy you say? You should try the classified ads. Or maybe you should leave him a gift on his doorstep after you stalk him for awhile.

Rent-A-Mark has an unusual business plan: renting trademarks. In thisintellectual-property-crazed age, it sounds like it could be a real money maker. Except who would want to pay for such god-awful clip-art eyesores?

Ever wonder what a theatrical trailer for Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game might be like? The Philotic Web (the official fan site) also has artand music inspired by the Enderverse.

There’s no need to hire expensive geophysicists or New-Ageydowsers when THE LORD tells you where to find profitable oil wells! You heathens would never dream of replacing your petroleum engineers with bible scholars, but that’s why you don’t work at Ness Energy – founded to “distribute God’s SUPERNATURAL WEALTH to God’s end-time ministries.” Strangely, God’s supernatural wealth has not translated into supernatural returns for Ness’s shareholders – but we here at memepool are pretty sure it’s just God’s way of testing the faith of the flock.

Sometimes you need the right tool for the right job. When you want to haul 4,000 pounds of construction material from Florida to Maryland, aVW Jetta is probably not the right tool. Don’t try this at home. Actually, don’t try this anywhere.

When you look at the sky at night, thank your lucky (ahem) stars that we live in a relatively dust-free part of the galaxy. This empty volume around us, out to about 100 light-years in every direction, is called the Local Bubble. Without this Bubble, it would be unlikely that we could see as many stars as we can. This good fortune is somewhat mitigated, however, by the fact that our sun is further encased in a small dust cloud, called the Local FluffAstronomers can be so cute!

Ever hear someone yell an ethnic slur and have no idea who they’re aiming it at? Or wondered why that Irish kid in school got all riled up when someone called him a “mick”? The Racial Slur Database is here to help with all your “what the hell does THAT mean?” needs.

FindSame is a search engine that searches by content instead of keywords. Enter a URL or upload a document and FindSame returns a list of Web pages that contain any fragment of that document longer than about one line of text. This is remarkably handy for finding plagarized content.

Wouldn’t the new media maze on the internet be alot easier for people to use if we mapped out the online music industry like the human genome? Well, that’s exactly the goal of The Music Genome Project — to become the largest updated directory of music and new media online.
