I like the link to "The 2009-2014 Outlook for Wood Toilet Seats in Greater China". A $500 digital book.

I also got the link to the outlook for wooden toilet seats in China. I guess there are a lot of bottoms in China, if you could sell 0.1% of them a wooden toilet seat you'd probably get rich pretty quick. Seems these links are random and you don't get the same ones every time? I guess it makes life interesting though.....

From what I saw in China, toilet seats are only for foreigners. Squat toilets are the vast norm. For $500 I can tell you that the outlook is bleak.

nope, in china, inside ppl's house will have real toilet seats. Squat is for travelers and foreigners, chinese don't want to share a toilet seat with a stranger like you, they are afraid of all kind of weird diseases...

Well, if crazy products with crazier reviews entertains you, try this one out, it comes in a convenient 55 gallon drum! http://www.amazon.com/Passion-Natural-Water-Based-Lubricant-Gallon/dp/B005MR3IVO

I've got a chunk of uranium ore around here somewhere. It was a mineral sample, stuck to a small card, which they used to sell. I remember getting it as a boy, but I don't remember where. Do they still sell mineral samples like that? Mine was about an inch across. I never had it tested. My son was going to try it out in his science lab, but I think he lost the nerve (in case he was discovered carrying uranium ore in his pocket).

Andy_I, Along the same lines, I remember as a boy, our neighbor was a miner engineer of some sort, and his son always dazzles us with his latest finding. I remember very clearly receiving a small vile (perhaps couple ounces) of mercury to "PLAY" with. Not realizing the toxic nature of it at the time, remember how my friend would play with the mercury in his hands, creating interesting ripple effects while poured from hand to hand. :-)

If you fly at 30000 feet or greater, you are exposed to a rate of 1100 to 1500 counts per minute. Below 10,000 feet it is typically, 10 - 50 CPM.

Interesting...Max next time you are on a flight, take your geiger counter with you and test this (I didn't get the opportunity while I had it...) and let us know. Let's hope you don't get arrested at security though...

Been trolling some of these oldie-but-goodie posts, and the Interent meme engine keeps on chugging, like this comment:

 

It's been almost 100 days since I "disposed" of the Uranium Ore I purchased from Amazon.com. Seeing as how they sent me 10 orders instead of 1 I thought it would be alright to dispose of the two or three cans in the backyard. 91 days later and I'm barricaded in my house, beseiged by mutated grasshoppers, bees, wasps, and ants the size of ponies. My food stores are dwindling; I only have a few gallons ofTuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz left, though a spritz of Uranium Ore has kept it fresh all this time. I'm down to my last box of Fresh Whole Rabbit as well. Even though I had to kill them (again), some of the Uranium Ore I used on the Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz has also helped them stay fresh during these past few months.

I think there are ~1,000 of my old "Cool Beans" blogs out there basking in the Internet equivalent of lounge chairs just waiting for someon to find them and re-introduce them to the world. (Tag, you're "it" :-)

It's been quite entertaining to take a stroll through the archives of EETImes, I heartily recommend it. And beware you don't know where I am going to pop up next!!

For some reason I'm reminded of a pantomime -- I have a vision of myself working at my desk as I am ... looking over the top of my monitors so see a huge audience staring at me, with the wide-eyed kids pointing and shouting"She's behind you!!!"
