Serve It Up Disorderly

The Way Khool Site of the day is: Weird Picture Archive

Living in Hawaii, I especially like the photo with the lava flow on an Hawaiian Island covering a roadway with a sign that reads Reduced Speed Ahead. That was good for a laugh, but then most of the pictures on this site are very funny.

And now for the latest award....

Today's Way Khool Site is: Darwin Awards

The Darwin Awards site will have you laughing and marveling about the level of stupidity of some of our fellow humans. This site gives yearly awards for the stupidest stunts people have pulled. Here's how they describe their offering: "Named in honor of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, the Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it." Also available is a yearly list, honorable mentions, urban legends, personal accounts and the always-hilarious slush pile. If you need an intro to this site, please refer to the earlier posting on Way Khool Sites honoring the presentation of "Dance Monkeys Dance". The human species is no doubt nominated for a "weird award" at some galactic banquet I would venture.

Gripe, gripe, gripe

Today's Way Khool Site is: BossBitching

You are offered a venue to receive support from others by bitching about your boss through an anonymous posting place. Others weigh in on your bitching by posting sympathetic (or not!)comments. This site is neatly organized with definitions of six different types of The Bad Boss: The Credit Stealer, The Criticizer, The Insensitive, The Micro Manager, The Tyrant, and the All Purpose Asshole.

Haven't we all known at least one of these kinds of bosses in our careers--the kind that put us down to make themselves bigger and brighter?

Travel to the Beat of a Different Drummer

The Way Khool Site of today is: Unusual Hotels of the World

"Unusual hotels of the worlds is the online guide for travellers interested in staying somewhere truly different." This amazing site displays icons to click on which offer the most unusual options. They aren't kidding! Their options range from merely unusual to wacky to outrageous to the ultimate, the WOW factor, and everyone of them looks like a fun vacation.

Have you ever wanted to stay in an igloo? Or underwater? Or live like Lawrence of Arabia? Almost every fantasy of a hotel is offered here. It's really challenging to decide which hotel you want to daydream about first. Let's see....my choice will be the Hydropolis, a luxury underwater facility under construction in Dubai (which will cover 27 acres) due to be completed in late 2007. The WOW factor is noted here, and I'm sure this hotel will be over the top--even if it's underwater.
