Origami House

Origami taken to a whole new level. This is a house (ok, actually more like a room with a roof) made of folded paper. They said they wanted a child's view of a house rectangles and a roof. The plans for the bricks are in a pdf on the site. I will probably end up fiddling with this, like so much other stuff. It is a good thing I have sooo much more free time than the rest of the world. ;) Enjoy!

Cool shop projects! - Homemade Baby Wipes

How many times can you mix power tools and baby care together (without seriously upsetting your spouse and/or getting the authorities notified)? With another one coming up this sounds like one of the flatout coolest projects ever! Can you beat baby wipes made with a table saw?

Television Tropes & Idioms - Main.HomePage

Speaking of time wasting sites... this one is a killer. Television Tropes & Idioms details the many plots and devices used in television. One of the best is "Jumping the Shark", which refers to a Happy Days episode. The idea is when a show tries something like that, things are not going well. The producers have left the original concept in an effort to re-energize the show. Anyway, give it a read.
