17 Web Toys for Your Procrastination Pleasure Sometimes you need to take a break from work and just veg out by doing something mindless and pleasant. TV or a game of solitaire is good for that, but both require a set time commitment. There are hundreds of alternatives on the internet in the form of web toys. These are sites that offer strange visuals, often interactive visuals, that require no real mental effort but might bring a smile to your face for a while. 1. Vector Park has some great toys and games, some of which are harder to figure out than others. 2. Ooh, cosmic! 3. Staggering Beauty is a web page that comes with an epilepsy warning. 4. Silk is an interactive drawing program (with music) in which you weave patterns of silky wisps of smoke across the screen to create horizontally-mirrored art. 5. Sometimes you'd like to draw with many lines at the same time. 6. Have you ever made colored sand sculptures in a glass jar? RGB is pretty simple. 8. Cat Bounce shows you bouncing cats. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 15. Bring in the Cats!
recent 3 The Wonderful World of Prison Inventions Someone once said that necessity is the mother of all invention. Prison is one of the few places where very few common wants and needs are fulfilled; resources are incredibly limited and ardently regulated.

Tattoo Gun While your in prison, why not get a tattoo to commemorate " the time of your life", and there's also no better way of showing your commitment to what ever gang you choose to join while in the clink. Pipe Just because you got thrown in the slammer doesn't mean you might not get the occasional chance to enjoy some weed. Hidden Shiv Razor Comb Rash Knuckles
