"Just got an iPhone 4G — it's delicious!"


Jim wrote that he's "just trying to make some cool pancakes for my daughter."

He continued, "Why wait for the iPhone 4G to come out when you can make one that is just as good out of pancakes?"

And: "I attempted to use blueberry juice and cocoa powder to make black, but it didn’t go too well. It’s not the most appetizing-looking thing in the world, but it tasted good. I tried to get Allie to hold it up to her ear so that I could take a picture, but she told me that 'it’s not nice to play with your food.' Wasn’t really sure how to argue with that one."

Above and below,

How to tune out the vuvuzela buzz on a Samsung TV


Timely, what?

Writes Cliff, "Menu/Vol/EQ it's Bb, so drop 300Hz and boost adjacent eqs. Save as Custom. Done!"

Neither of my TVs has an equalizer function, just bass and treble, so I'm out of luck.

Hope you're more fortunate.

Mighty Pump


From the website:


Quickly drain your outdoor pool cover, inflatable pool, garden pond, hot tub — any place with excess water.

Simply connect between two garden hoses and immerse — it's powered by the force of water pressure. 

No moving parts to break and no batteries to recharge or replace. 

Because it uses no electricity it's always reliable.

Heavy-duty plastic won't rust or corrode.

4" long.
