I hope the addressee got the message in time...

Found in a pile of old coins that was given to Yahel by grandpa Eli:

The asimon (Hebrew for "token") was the only means of payment in Israeli public phones until the end of the 80s, when it was replaced by the telecart. I remember one year, when the price of phone calls went up so steeply that analysts concluded that the investment in asimonim was better than the dollar, or the stock market. The only problem was, how to buy them in large quantities. In any case, the asimon was a common cultural token of those days. A mythical pick-up strategy for young people was to approach the subject with one of these tokens, and tell them "call me up some time".

Those things start piling up. Better post them all.
  • Anybody who wants to get married / divorced / burried (god forbid), or get info about any Jewish holiday, this is the place to start looking. The Jewish Encyclopedia (heb).
  • If you have trouble understandig cooking recepies (like me), you'll love this cooking site. It shows how to prepare the meals using flash videos. Registration is required.
  • Since we're in the domain of flash, here's a nice flash game. The aim of Bloxors is to get the blocks to fall into the square holes at the end of each stage. There are 33 stages to complete.
  • A very simple application to test your typing speed. I don't remember my score, but it was something pityful.
  • Don't you sometimes wonder why hasn't anyone invented a device for preventing traffic accidents? So here is one that looks promising. Watch the flash video (heb).
  • This site will scan any file you upload using every imaginable (updated) software to detect any virus, trojan, spyware etc. It will probably be wise to bookmark it and use it whenever you run a suspicious exe, like a crack or something.
  • Yet another photo competition. This one is sponsored by KLM (spotted it in Amsterdam). There are some nice prizes to be won.
  • Some dude created a special camera to be carried by his cat. The camera takes pictures every couple of minutes, and shows the cat's daily travels. Pretty neat (via [livejournal.com profile] missmokie).
  • Lots and lots of movies to be watched online, using flash video technology. The site shows mainly Russian titles, but I think there are other countries as well.
That's it. Until next time.

This is a very simple how-to, How to be Charming, the American way.
Shall we all become charming at once? :)

These guys will come to your place, take your old furniture and unneeded electrical appliances, and get them to people who really need them.

now the only question is - how do I know they'll stand by their word? )

[livejournal.com profile] nagato_yukki has a robot (nicknamed Durka) that answers all comments that you leave in her journal. Sometimes she answers the comments in person, but Durka (the userpic has pointed ears) will always answer first. I wonder how much intelligence the robot has.

P.S: Obviously, Durka writes in Russian.

  • Elena's Motorcycle Ride through Chernobyl. A blood chilling documentary of the town that suffered one of the major nuclear catastrophes of all times (via [livejournal.com profile] lahedge).
  • The mission of the Global Orgasm is to effect change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy. Yeah, let's do it! Only a couple of days left to prepare.
  • If you still don't know how they cut people in half on magic shows, it's time to find out, don't you reckon?
  • Eight minutes' video of professional drivers parking their cars in all imaginable ways.
  • Stuff for kids - cartoons, games, stories, music, coloring books, you name it.
  • Speaking about kids, here's another cool place called My First Home Page, with dozens of links for children aged 4-5.
  • Apparently there a campaign for collecting the gas masks from the public. Never heard of it before (heb).
  • Last but not least, here's a place where you can watch American TV series over the net, for free. The quality is so-so at best, the problem being bandwidth.
C'est tout!

I hope you didn't rely too much on my get-rich-quick scheme. The program is useless. Didn't win a penny.

If you believe you can make money without hard work, or good investments, try my get-rich-quick number generator for the upcoming lottery (50 million of our funny local currency).

  • Brigitte Gabriel from Lebanon gives the Hizballah a piece of her mind (5min video).
  • A gallery of the Israeli weapons arsenal. Somewhat outdated, but impressive still.
  • Юмор FM. A radio station that translates all kinds of music and "fun stuff" in Russian. A bit on the silly side.
  • A List of Free Berkeley Courses, in video or MP3 format (via [livejournal.com profile] shaulreznik).
  • These guys willl make a connection between your phone and any other number worldwide, for free! The freebies are limited in time, but it's worth a try anyway (via [livejournal.com profile] ein_gedi).

  • Take a virtual tour of Jerusalem using the new website of its municipality (English or Hebrew).

  • The Carver is a new conceptual vehicle, a hybrid between a motorcycle and a small car. Check the videos to see how it carves corners.

  • Some microchip designers make good use of their time by embedding original drawings into their circuits. The images are visible only under a microscope. Click on the blue links (beginnig with "A Dog's Life") to see samples.
