HEY, IT'S FRIDAY

Time to play: Translation Party!

I tried some song lyrics, and found that it makes quick work of the Beatles, but is stumped by Chuck Berry.

If we could somehow combine this with the Photoshop squirrel, we could bring the economy to a complete halt.

PRODUCTIVITY UPDATE

It turns out you can make your own productivity-enhancement applications, according to the folks at this site, who claim they made this game in under 60 seconds (a claim this blog totally believes). "Dave Barry Escape" is a very realistic simulation of what happens when this blog is flying around over South Beach pursued by entities. This happens almost every night.

WHAT WE HATE ABOUT BLOGGING

What we hate is when people send us impossible productivity enhancers with comments such as "My personal best is 111.197 m" when we very rapidly determine that our personal best (after a frustratingly large number of tries because he seemed so enthusiastic about it) is 6.32 m.

(Gee thanks to Vol)
