I know, I know, it's not the size of your manhole cover... it's what you do with it!
It's hard to describe the way in which my mind works (or bumbles along, depending on your point of view). Irrespective of what I'm doing (or supposed to be doing), random thoughts pop in and out of my consciousness of their own volition ("Ooooh ... look at that ... shiny!")
Thus is was that, while Googling for some information for a paper I was writing, my mind turned to ponder the Fake Manhole Cover I made a couple of weeks ago for tomorrow's Halloween celebrations.
So, for no reason whatsoever, I requested that Google perform a search on the topic of "Manhole Covers". This led me to the Damn Cool Pictures website, of which I was previously unaware (at least, I don't recall seeing it before).
This is an amazing site boasting incredible photos and videos in which you can lose yourself for hours. For example the following topics immediately caught my eye, but there are many, many more:
Japanese Manhole Cover Art
Most Amazing PC Case Mods Ever
Real Strange Toilets
Monkey Adopts Tiger Cubs
Why Women Live Longer Than Men
The first topic (Japanese Manhole Cover Art) left me with "manhole cover envy", while the last topic closes with a must-see video... Enjoy!
