I haven’t stopped by somethinginteresting.com in a while so I thought I’d share something you don’t see everyday. ..or maybe you do.
In preparing this white Macbook for sale @ auction, I removed a dozen bumper stickers that were plastered all over it. I really don’t know why the vinyl came right off, but ALL the adhesive was still on the notebook computer case.
Ordinarily, Goof Off works absolutely perfectly on removing residual sticker adhesive. Once though, I used Goof Off to take writing off a Frisbee but unfortunately it dissolved the disc material… it softened the spot I’d applied Goof Off and ruined the disc. Continue reading

Anyone caught referring to their M16 as a gun was taught.. that a gun is between your legs. Continue reading
Next up: US citizens must surrender all cactus plants to police.
Because cacti have the divine right of self-protection they have been determined by the United Nations to conflict with the “Democratically legitimized monopoly of violence that is globally required.”
