…It’s Things Thursday: Foof?

Foof

Foofbags and Foofpods are fantastic looking cases, sleeves, covers and pouches for laptops, iPods, iPhones, and other gadgets in need of protection.

Each Foofbag or Foofpod is ethically handmade in Australia, and comes in a variety of fantastic finishes.

The insides are lined with either Sherpa fleece or polished satin, and the included padding keeps your gadgets safe from the bumps and bruises of everyday use.

…Flickr has a lot of photos?

Flickr - Two Billionth Photo

Though it looks like any other photo, this photo of a sculpture, taken in front of Market City in the Chinatown Haymarket of Sydney, Australia is important, because it marks the milestone of Flickr’s two billionth photo! (Billionth with a B!)

Good to know there’s at least a few people putting their digital camera to good use.

…Cocaine is bad for the brain?

Caution: This video is very graphic.

In Australia, they apparently don’t have to hold back for their PSAs like they do in the US.

To teach people the dangers of cocaine, this clip follows a man as he enters a bathroom, peels back his head, and then proceeds to snort down a little piece of his own brain.

It gets the message across loud and clear, but is definitely not for the squeamish.

…I’m in Australia?

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’m on vacation down under for two weeks. I’ll be back on July 20th with more greatness (and plenty of Australian stories), but until then, G’day, Mates!

…The Trader Bar lets you invest in your drink?

The Trader Bar

The Trader Bar in Melbourne, Australia adds a new and very interesting twist to the traditional method of ordering your favorite libation. Above the bar, large TVs show the drink market, where drink prices fluctuate every 5-9 minutes depending on public demand. The higher the demand for a particular drink, the higher the cost. You are then faced with the decision of drinking your old favorite that may be at a high price or trying something new for a lower cost. Fear not though, every once in a while the staff will replace the bar music with a large crashing sound and the bar market will crash, causing all drinks to go to their lowest possible price. Plus, with signature cocktails like the Arbitrage, the 1929, and the Cayman Fund, you’re sure to be a bull in no time. Just watch out for those penny stocks, they’ll take your portfolio from you in a hurry.
