Some places are known for blowing the existing up and rebuilding from the ashes, history be damned. Other places embrace their history, making it difficult for any new development to take place lest it disturb the historical (in)significance of what’s present.
That’s why Web Watch loves websites like WHAT WAS THERE, as it tries to capture the glory of history, without worrying about keeping the march of progress down.
Ever wonder what it would be like if your belly had a big glass window like your oven does, so you can glance at your developing child any time you wanted? Yeah, it would put new meaning to the phrase “a bun in the oven”.
Rick Baird from Charlotte, North Carolina, is not an idiot, nor does he play “miniature golf”.
He plays Putt-Putt, and he’s really good at it.
Web Watch knows you’re confused — isn’t putt-putt golf and miniature golf the same thing? No, dear reader, it isn’t. Putt-Putt is a franchised company that defines a standard set of putting challenges that will be mainly the same from one Putt-Putt location to another. Consistency is important here, and putting is a true skill to be showcased.
Are you one of those women who go out of their way to avoid any semblance of panty line or tan line?
Just like you, Web Watch knows plenty of women who fear having panty lines so much that they are the first ones to admit that they invented going commando. These women get angry at the thought of having to “be proper” and wear any sort of underwear that makes its presence known on the outside of their slacks or dresses.
It’s just another thing that parents do to embarass their kids: dressing up their kids in funny costumes and taking pictures of ‘em.
Pictures that can be used for high school yearbooks, engagement party photo displays, bar mitzvah autograph boards — you know, anything that can be blown up to poster-size and put on display for the world to see.
Comic fans around the world mourned when Bill Watterson decided to stop writing CALVIN & HOBBES. Considering how much demand there still is for various Calvin or Hobbes merchandise based on the sheer number of counterfeit “Calvin peeing” stickers one sees on the back of pick-up trucks around the country, it was only a matter of time before someone picked up the gauntlet for us fans.
Doug Zongker has made a name for himself, if only because he knows the proper way to do a business Powerpoint presentation.
You can read the entire paper here, but Web Watch has included part of the transcript from the presentation after the cut. We all could learn a little something about what we can do with our own Powerpoint presentations here, as Doug’s presentation has become known as the Best Powerpoint Presentation EVER
Well, let’s assume that you don’t know your neighbors very well. In that case, it’s quite possible that you DO live next door to a celeb and don’t even know it.
That’s because some celebrities like to keep a low-profile when it comes to their personal home life. Web Watch had to pay a visit to a celeb’s house a while back (yeah, you’d recognize their name if we told you who it was), and their home was nestled in between two trailer parks out in the boonies – nice place, but not exactly living the glorified high life from a location viewpoint. Continue reading HOW MUCH IS YOUR FAVORITE CELEBRITY WORTH?→
George Carlin used to joke about needing a “place for your stuff”. Look around – it’s just a bunch of stuff lying around your house, isn’t it?
Stuff you don’t need.
Stuff you can’t even remember why it’s there in the first place.
Stuff you have to decide to leave behind if a flood comes. Stuff you have to recover if you were ever burgled. Stuff you might need to list in a divorce proceeding. Stuff you’ll have to go through once your parents pass away years from now.
Once you get past the initial “MAC vs Windows” discussion, the choices typically come down to price variations. Web Watch has always said — and it’s been holding true for the past 20 years or so — that the “ideal” computer that any computer nerd would want will cost about $2,000.
You’d be surprised that the $2k number holds up, even in today’s retail environment where a decent home computer can be had for around $500. Note that we said that this was a computer ideal for a computer nerd, not just any machine that would get somebody through the next two years of English class at the local university.
And that’s because that $2000 computer is one that is going to last for a number of years because it has all the bells and whistles for today, and will likely not need to be upgraded anytime soon.
