A Sense of Humor

What did one wall say to the other wall?
Meet you at the corner!

How do you get 3 Bulbasaur and 5 Charmanders into a car?
You Poke-em-on

What did the snail say when he was riding the turtle?

A mushroom walks into a bar. The bartender go, "You have to leave. We don't serve mushrooms." The mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a Fungi."

What?! It's Soap?

While fumbling around for cleaning products today, I came upon Digital Soaps on I picked out two that I found pretty cool.

I don't really know why I suddenly have this fascination for guy-related stuff lately, but I'm really feeling this Xbox Controller Replica Soap. The colors and texture emulate the real thing pretty well, I must say. At only $12, it's the most realistic soap replica. If you are interested, BUY NOW since they only have 12 in stock and they started sales on Monday.

And then there is this Mocha Cappuccino Cocoa Butter Latte Soap that looks absolutely delicious. It comes with real coffee beans as well as the scent of whipped cream. Although the soap is only $8, there is only ONE left in stock.

Even though these are soap, I'm probably not going to do anything to them but just look at them. winny wants them.

Mighty Wallet

Ever thought of express mail paper as a wallet? Well, now you should. The Mighty Wallet is the product of Dynomighty Designs and it is made out of exactly want it looks like, express mail paper. This material is made out of Tyvek, a strong very strong material that owes its strength to randomly interlocking plastic fibers. It is waterproof, tearproof, and amazingly light. Just check out the Youtube video, courtesy of

At only $15, this is the most affordable item on my wishlist yet. Not only is it good for your current wallet, it's made from recyclable material, so it is good for the environment as well.

...and that's mighty awesome. winny wants it.

Bondified Table

For those who have seen the newest James Bond installment, you would recognize this table, more formally known as the Struktable. Although I really don't need this super-high tech, 70-inch display, illuminating, I am completely inamored with this innovation. The application lets you interact with more than 8 people, as it can pick up an infinite amount of finger touches. That means, more than one person can play with this thing, and it won't get confused. It uses infrared LEDs, an IR camera, projector and computer to function and do all the cool things it's hyped up to do.

Even though I would not be able to reap the benefits and potential of this machine, I would love to have one of these in my room. I would finally be able to start that secret agent organization I have always dreamed of.

I can be the next M of M12. huang, winny huang wants it.

Blooming Branch Jewelry Stand

Studies have shown that plants in a room make the atmosphere more inviting and healthy. Unfortunately, many of us are busy teenages who can care less about watering a plant every day. Plus, real plants invite bugs and bacteria when it dies. But don't get me wrong; if you have the tenacity to take care of a plant, by all means, please do! It's great for the environment! But, for the majority of us who can't, why not have a fake metal one that holds your jewelry. This Blooming Branch Stand is as elegant as its larger counterpart, but better, becuase it won't die. Plus, it holds your necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Oh my!

They sell for $32 and can only be bought through the Urbanoutfitters website,

Lego Ipod Speakers

I saw these Building Blog Ipod Speakers while surfing today. The unconventional design of these speakers really caught my attention. They bring back happy memories of the times I chose not to play with my Barbies and build lego forts with my brother. If you're like me and still want to be a kid as long as possible, these speakers will not only "speak" your music, but also speak your heart. Speakers work with the Nano, Classic, Mini, and Touch at only $25.

Have fun blocking (not in the sense of Statistics).

Now I Can Nap Anywhere!

Have you ever fallen asleep on your textbook or found yourself lying face first on your keyboard with no recollection of when or how you fell asleep. Well, maybe you should try out Pillow For Work by Polish designer Maja Ganszyniec.

I'll be honest, this product looks a bit ridiculous, but I definately need it. Way too many times have I found myself dazed and confused with bruises on my face after passing out in the middle of studying. Waking up at the peak of dawn and realizing that you still have three unfinished assignments due that morning is the worst feeling in the world. Fortunately, these pillows would ease the pain as they cushion the fall of your heavy head before it pummels onto the table. Despite the inconvenient repercussions of your unexpected nap, at least you rested comfortably.

I just hope Maja Ganszyniec makes a scarf version. Ohh...comfy. winny wants it.
