Worldmapper lists different maps that have re-sized territories on the basis of different topics such as Infant Mortality, Drought etc.

Its amusing, nifty and at the same time pretty informative.

Mario Forever screenshot (+)With the upcoming launch of the Nintendo Wii, I was just thinking of the good days when I used to play Mario on SNES. And subsequently when I saw the game ‘Mario Forever’ for full download on download.com I had to check it out.

The game is very similar to the one that I used to play when I was younger and the 2D animation stays true to the original version. Its probably the best free Mario game. Its good to play with the chubby plumber again after a long long time. 😛

calvinEarlier I posted about a site that contained daily updated comic strips. This site though revolves around Calvin and Hobbes and has a nice collection of comics, quotes and wallpapers.

➡ This is a pretty cool game that takes advantage of Google maps. Its a mini flight simulator where your given a super F18 Jet (okay, okay its just a normal aeroplane) and allowed to fly over the top cities in the world.

Broadband connection is recomended.

barneyI couldn’t stop laughing when I read this news story.

Privacy watchdog, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a suit against Lyons partenersips, Barney’s copyright owners, for infirnging a parodist’s right to free speech.

I guess “I love you, You love me, We’re a happy family..” can’t be applied here 😆 .

A nice simple ping pong sort of game. It may be simple at first but it gets harder as you move up the levels. On my first try I got 11500+ points by reaching the 6th level 😛

According to a survey conducted by LaughLab these are claimed to be the world’s funniest jokes:

In 1st place:
A couple of New Jersey hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”

In 2nd place:
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep.
Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”
“I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes” replies Watson.
“And what do you deduce from that?”
Watson ponders for a minute.
“Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?”
Holmes is silent for a moment. “Watson, you idiot!” he says. “Someone has stolen our tent!”

Hmm.. They’re funny but not quite shure whether they are the funniest. 😕
