Thai table tells you how to make a lot of the classic Thai dishes, all about the ingredients, what sort of equipment you need and has articles
like ‘The truth about peanut sauce’ – I swear there’s no such thing in Thailand – how the hell did it come to be associated?

Also where to find suppliers for the ingredients etc. in places besides the US
(for a change) – if you like Thai grub then check this site out!

Corporate Logos – After The Crisis

http://tinyurl.com/5o2xgx

“The 2008 crash is probably the most serious economic crisis we have faced after the Great Depression. Stock markets from around the world fell as much as 20% in a single week, dozens of banks either failed or were rescued by government and private institutions, and companies started laying off employees as a consequence of the reduced demand.

We know how we entered into the crisis, but we don’t how, when, or how we will be getting out of it. Considering that issue, we decided to our little bit to help cheer everyone up by redoing the logos of some renowned companies …. after the crisis.”

“It’s said that a great piece of art reveals new facets of meaning each time you look at it. Since we’re impatient and lazy, we asked you to open up some new facets for us. Specifically, we asked you to use photoshop to show us some things we might not have noticed the first time we looked at some of the world’s most famous pictures.”

YouTube Picks #30 – 650 Million Years In 1

I guess that most people know about the tectonic plates of the Earth gradually moving around and causing earthquakes etc.

The continents of Earth were originally all lumped together in one land-mass called Pangaea. They slowly moved apart to form the continents that we know today.

But what I didn’t realize was that eventually our continents will be as one again – say, in 250 million years or so…

This app will take any word, sentence or paragraph and translate it into what it thinks a 12-year-old computer addict might render it as.

I added this: “Baan Liam is surely one of the poorest examples of a website on the internet today.”

and it made it into: “BAN LIM SI SURELEY ON3 OF DA POREST 3XMPLAS OF A W3BSIET ON TEH INTARNAT 2DAY!!111! LOL”

LMAO :-)) …..well not quite..

Speed Reader

Improve the speed that you can read at on this site. You find a body of text somewhere, copy / paste it into the text box provided, set the speed you want to try and this app will flash the words up on the screen at the speed that you have set.

I’ve been running some tests myself and can just about manage 420 words per minute on this – although at those kind of speeds there’s not really enough time for what you are reading to sink in.
