Today's Way Khool Site is: 99% Air Dwellings
Check out these amazing inflatable prototypes which "consider the idea of a malleable home that can be deflated and fit into a suitcase, then travel to a new location with its owner." This is possibly something to have on hand in your closet for those visitors who want to stay on.

You did what?
Today's Way Khool Site is: Anecdota
I've always loved anecdotes because of the emotional charge that usually goes with the sharing of an anecdote. This site is "a regularly updated collection of interesting, true stories, compiled from websites and newsgroups" with over 410 anecdotes on practically every subject imaginable. You can also submit your own anecdote!

Tuck Me In With Ambience
Today's Way Khool Site is: Ambience For The Masses
This site features "a random cycling of some of the most sleep-worthy tracks ever created. Live on-line sedation is available 24/7/365 and all without a doctor's prescription." Just imagine how many people could use this station! It's a far better solution than sleeping pills or counting sheep.

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?

The Way Khool Site of today is: Sketch Swap
These folks provide you with a drawing board on your computer screen complete with a pencil to make a sketch. You then submit your completed sketch and receive a sketch (as it is being sketched) in return. How khool is that! The (scanned) sketch of an eye shown above is what was returned to me!
And a Big Shout Out and Mahalo Nui Loa to the nice folks of Best Blog Of The Day
Notice the nifty Award from them posted on my sidebar.

Everything about this new kind of music is explained here, and you can create endless arrangements of unique, individual music compositions for purposes such as art, ringtones, alerts and more. This is another fun, amazing, addictive site! Set some time aside for playing around in this sandbox.

Dimensions Clearly Explained At Last
Today's Way Khool Site is: Imagining The Tenth Dimension
This is an animated walk-through-explanation of the dimensions all the way up to the tenth that is amazingly easy to understand because of the way it is drawn, worded and animated. I love it!
If you have always wondered EXACTLY what the dimensions are, then this way khool site will educate and illuminate everything for you! The navigational set-up is easily understood, and you don't need to be a genius to operate this animated tool! Yeh!
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.
