And we're back... sort of.

Hey folks! It's been awhile hasn't it! Anyone still out there? Really? That's great! So how have you been this past year? That's great! Did you achieve all of the goals you had in mind from July 7th, 2010 until now July 6th, 2011? That's great! Did you get that promotion you were waiting for? That's great! Did you take that vacation you wanted to take that you really needed for sake of well being? That's great!  Did you learn a new skill that you've always wanted to take up but never had time? That's great! You know what's also great? Parfaits. They are deliciously great.

All greatness aside, yes I know it's been a while. I decided to dust off my lonely website and give it another go. Speaking of dust, I'm sure you'll find tons of lingering issues, all of which will be corrected shortly. In the meantime, would you like to drop a comment and say hello? That's great!

And even if you don't want to post a comment... you guessed it, that's great!

Twenty of the greatest Monty Python sketches for your silly viewing pleasure.Twenty of the greatest Monty Python sketches for your silly viewing pleasure.

Minister: lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right leg isn't silly at all and the left leg merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate step. Mr Pudey: Yes, but I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly.

Heinz pulls the curtain back on brand new ketchup packet design. Behold!Heinz pulls the curtain back on brand new ketchup packet design. Behold!

Say goodbye to those hard to open splatter-prone ketchup packets. Say hello to the totally redesigned peel-back-BBQ-sauce-like-dipping-style design. Wait, it took them this long to figure this one out?

Fantastic elastic through the stretchy eye of Photoshop.Fantastic elastic through the stretchy eye of Photoshop.

Who needs a space elevator when you can just as easily build a space ladder instead? I ask these questions to myself (and anyone who will listen) on a daily basis. You're not listening, are you?

New study regarding peeling stickers may pave the road for stretchier electronics.New study regarding peeling stickers may pave the road for stretchier electronics.

The research team did not have stretchable electronics in mind when they started, but launched the project as an analysis of the wrinkling and delamination of stickers. The small blisters that appear in stickers attached to car windows are a common example of such delamination.
