Expired Domain Girl – A paean to the face that launched a thousand tabs, the girl who has “what you need, when you need it,” – the stock photography model used in the majority of generic domain squat pages.
The Battle – The effect of the knowledge economy on the balance between tactics and lore.
If You Miss Geocities, You Can Now Have It – Something like this was completely unfathomable in the era of Geocities’ heyday. Could be fertile ground for some fantastic research, or, you know, a surplus of laser rainbow horizontal rules if nothing else.
Truth In Videogaming – In an Isaiah Mustafa-esque breaking down of the fourth wall, hockey player Adam Burish responds to a fan email criticizing him for his poor performance on his video game team. If only I could find an address to which to send a gift basket for Mr. QB Eagles, for everything he did for me in Tecmo Bowl.
DIY Robot Laser Tag – I feel like someone’s mom must have invented this because she felt that full-contact robot combat was “just too violent for my tastes! Why don’t you just make the robots play a nice game of flag football?”

I Dunno If You’ve Heard Of This Thing Called Japan… – On some days, there’s nothing better than a really bitter book review. “Is there anything Ashcraft writes about that doesn’t boil down to HEY GUYS I’M IN JAPAN, HEY, HEY GUESS WHERE I AM—GUESS—(IT’S JAPAN)”
Cageflix – “Automatically add every Nicholas Cage movie to your Netflix queue.”
Best Use Of Panty Liners On London’s Tube (Headrest)
Filler Item – This is the made-obsolete-by-Amazon-Prime site that helps you find an item of an exact cost so as to get free shipping. Not a heh in itself, but it did lead me to two excellent items in the $1.08 to $1.10 range. Someone should really add a spectacular review or two and make Blow!: Jesus Calms the Storm the next Three Wolf Moon. And now I know where to get a cheap Jobber Length Drill. For when you need to drill those jobbers.
Trash Humpers – It’s the fact that “free ringtones” is part of their marketing push that really makes this a heh.
