‘About Time’ Clock Shows Time Roll By


Gone are the days when clocks were made for people to be on time because Sander Mulder has created a wonderful clock, with a very innovative design. This clock rolls around your desk and you have full spellings or rather a full sentence to read the hours. Though it doesn’t give you the accurate time (it doesn’t explicitly show minutes) you can make a pretty close assumption. Have it on your desk and see time simply roll around.

Portable Lie Detector For the Paranoid


It’s sad how insecure some people feel, and while this gadget sounds ludicrous, people are actually going to buy it. Portable Lie Detector depends upon variations in a person’s voice to detect nervousness and decide if it is a truth or lie. The maker claims a good degree of accuracy for the device, and says it works very effectively over phones, especially mobile phones, owing to the digital nature. The lie detector costs $59 at Amazon.

US Officials Accept They Made A Spelling Mistake


Officials have admitted that they misspelled Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg. The mistake has been going on for years, but a local newspaper Worcester Telegram & Gazette has been trying to highlight the mistake since 2003. A study was carried out, and they determined that Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg was the correct spelling, in place of Chargoggagoggmanchaoggagoggchaubunaguhgamaugg (the difference is at position 20, where an “u” is replaced by “o” and at position 38 where an “h” replaces “n”). The study went on to find another variant of the name.. the 49 alphabet “Chargoggagoggmanchauggauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg.” People usually refer to the lake as Webster Lake.

Seriously, some people have too much time on their hands.
