Mark Davidson is, according to his Twitter tagline, an “Internet sales & marketing professional. I write a lot of things to amuse myself and others. On occasion, I even have deep thoughts.”
It appears as if all those “deep thoughts” may not actually have eminated from his own mind, but from three ghost-tweeters employed by Mark. Unfortunately, one of those writers claims to have been sacked by Mark…unfortunate as Mark also forgot to change his Twitter password.
Brilliant! Technology at it’s best.

You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen this on Youtube. It’s a movie from disintegrator.co.uk – “Home of the most devastating rubber band Gatling gun in the world” (and apparently very popular at the moment, as the web site is currently being trounced!)
It’s a must-see.
…if only for the throw-away comment buried in the details of their battery recall:
“This advisory applies only to the 46 million batteries manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006”
Only the 46 million? For a moment there I thought it was serious.
I know it’s a burning issue, especially with an election here on Thursday, but according to the New Scientist online, “Viagra reduces hamster jet-lag“. Now there’s a headline I didn’t expect to see…
According to the article, “Hamsters…adjusted more quickly to laboratory simulations of a six-hour time-zone change than animals in the control group”. Did the viagraed hamsters stand up, have a good stretch, and then go for a run on the treadmill, whereas the other ones just moped around drinking coffee and devouring a half-pack of Marlboros?
Why haven’t Bertie and Enda covered this ground? We, the people, demand answers!
I really thought that the only place this existed was in The Simpsons, but oh no…Samsung to the rescue.
A recent product development in the US, to stop kids hanging around malls, was to play a high pitched noise at the store entrance. As we get older, our ability to hear higher frequencies deteriorates, and only kids can hear this noise (apparently, ‘coz I can’t hear it but that doesn’t mean it’s actually there!).
Now, enterprising kids are using this sound as ringtones on their ‘phones so that they can get calls in class, knowing that the teacher won’t be able to hear the ring.
Check it out for yourselves here and see if you can hear a high-pitched cricket-type of chirping. Now, if can only get those crickets to say “Clean your room…clean your room”…
