Double-Tongued Word Wrester logo
The funniest educational site ever.
There are those that accuse us of having a rather odd sense of what is fun in life. There may be something to it, too, considering that we have published this blog for almost a year now. Never mind, here is another blog that we already love, although we have only known about it for a few hours. But we have both had a lot of fun, and learned a lot during those hours, so we will consider them well spent. How about this for learning:

muffin top n rolls of flesh bulging over a waistband
Categories: English Slang
Editorial Note: This term has been nominated as one of the words of the year, to be voted on by the American Dialect Society January 6. This term may have first been popularized by the Australian television show Kath & Kim. An episode of the American sitcom Seinfeld, “The Muffin Tops,” first broadcast May 8, 1997, spawned a different, short-lived usage of muffin top as a name for anything good. The 2003 citation probably does not refer to the bulging appearance of a midriff. The first 2004 citation gives a different term for the phenomenon and uses muffin top as a description of a different part of the body.

And it goes on and on. Today there were 818 different words explained, but new ones are added every day. For us, who use (and abuse) a foreign language (English) on a daily basis, this site will be a goldmine. Thank you DTWW, for doing this! Double-Tongued Word Wrester via A Whole Lotta Nothing.

Net poker cards
Poker playing robots taking you to the cleaners?
Did you (as we did) think that net poker meant that some gambling inclined people (mostly guys) gathered around a virtual poker table to play a few pots? And that the winner eventually was the most able to judge risks and possibilities and the opponent's strength and weakness? In that case you will probably have to think again. Next time you join an on-line poker table it is possible, or maybe even probable, that one or more of your opponents are – poker playing robots. The 'bot is a PC-program running on a separate (but connected) PC that analyzes the game and makes the best possible play at every given moment. How it is done is outlined in this very interesting story in British This is Money. If this is even remotely true, the net poker business is as dead as a busted flush... Via Digg.

Animated knots by Grog

Animated knot tying instructions.
We would have loved this when we were in the boy scouts. The times they are a-changing. Mostly for the better, too. We spent years of our most delicate and sensitive years learning how to light fags without matches and how to tie knots looking at faded copies of not-so-detailed drawings. Now there is this site. With all the knots you have ever heard of (and possibly a few you have not). And all the instructions are animated! Someone has had way too much spare time. Thank God. This can be very useful.

Scart-TV miniature digital box

At last - a small digital TV box.
Digital TV set top boxes do not have to look like VCRs from the early eighties. Really. This smart (we think) box is called SCART-TV and is no bigger than an ordinary remote and can be plugged right into your TV:s scart connector. No bulky junk on top of the TV. No extra cables.... could it be better? Well, yes, but since things are like they are (we are pretty skeptical to the logic behind the digital TV transition, maybe this is the best we can hope for. The Scart-tv is EUR 99:- (ca SEK 925:-) at German Techno Trend. Allow six weeks for delivery. What does the Boxer people say? Thanks to Red Ferret.

Fun site on the science of cooking.
Cooking is not just grinding pepper and wielding whisks. There is actually a lot of chemistry and physics behind all dishes and not just the fancy ones, like eggs benedict, and sole meunière. More than you might think. A lot of fun and worth knowing stuff is found on this site. The Science of Cooking via Geeky Kewl.
