Little Alchemy 2

Mix and match various items to create more items.

Let’s finish out this week on a cool note. Little Alchemy 2 is a great casual game that lets you combine various items to make new things that can be used to create even more! This game has seemingly endless possibilities, and it’s bound to be different every time you restart it.


It’s like Photoshop, only cheaper.

Here’s an interesting one for you. It’s an online image editor. I’m still stuck in the past using Paint Shop Pro 4.14, so I honestly couldn’t tell you if this thing is any good or not. The neat thing is that you can if you’re using Chrome, you can “Install” it to your desktop. Anyhoo, it’s a neat one.

This website will self destruct

It’s probably fake, but an interesting art piece.

This website claims that if it goes more than 24 hours without receiving a message it will permanently self-destruct and wipe its database.

Personally I think its fake. Every time I go there it starts counting down from 86,400 seconds, and I ain’t never left it a message. In any event, it gets more clicks that my site, and my site has better things to click on.

The True Size Of

Yeah, it looks like it’s got ads. Use an adblocker.

The Peter’s Projection is a version of the world map that we’re all very familiar with, but while it gives you a good idea of where countries are in relation to one another, it tends to distort the size of the land. This website allows you to check the size of counties against any other country to see the true size of the land masses. Some of them are pretty surprising.

Koalas to the Max dot Com

Roll your mouse over a dot and it splits into four dots. Repeat again, and again. and again…

So this is a cute little time waster. The more you keep rolling your mouse over the dots, the clearer the picture of a koala and her joey gets. No idea what it’s good for, but it’s kind of soothing in a bubble wrap popping kind of way.

Not sure how, but there seems to be a way to insert your own pic.
