5 Free Online Riddle Sites

I love riddles and puzzles. Anything that makes my brain active, and provides a little challenge is always a good thing. Be it a one liner that stumps me for a while, a riddle that is just a pun, or a whole contest where I need to spend hours trying to get into the mindset of the creator – I like them all. Luckily for me then, the internet has many sites dedicated to providing you with free riddles which should suit all of your needs. Whether you’re looking for a place to spend ...

5 Beauty Products I Would Prefer Not To Know My Date Was Using

Everyone makes that extra effort to make themselves look beautiful when you first start dating. Afterall, you want to make a good impression, you want to attract the person you’re dating, and you also want to make sure you feel confident – which is much easier when you feel beautiful. I accept that there are many regimes that people go through in order to aid this, but there are definitely things that go on behind closed bathroom doors that I would prefer not to know about. I ...

5 Superhero powers I wish I possessed

Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a super power! Imagine how the world would be if you could do fly like Superman, change the weather like Storm, or stretch your body like Mr Fantastic. More to the point, imagine how cool it would be to have a secret underground headquarters! Yes, the world may turn into something resembling The X-Men, or Heroes…but we would get used to that with time and I’m sure everyone will eventually just be able to live in harmony with each other. ...

Top 5 gifts for poker players

It can be hard to buy a gift for a poker player if you don’t play the game yourself. What you might see as a nice gift could be useless to them. There are so many books on the market nowadays that they are also becomingly increasingly difficult purchases for your poker playing friend, especially if your own knowledge on the game is limited. Not only do you have to try and purchase a book your friend hasn’t already got, but then you also have to ask yourself these questions: Does ...

Top 5 Rube Goldberg and Domino effect videos

I’ve always been fascinated by the Rube Goldberg machines I’ve seen on television, and spent many hours as a child arranging various playthings around my bedroom in an attempt to have one thing interact with another, a ball hitting a piece of lego connected to a string attached to a plastic paratrooper. I rarely got a 5 step process working but it amused me for hours and was always more interesting than plain dominoes were, though the latter were another favourite pasttime. Here ...

Top 5 movies featuring Rabbits

Top 5 movies featuring Rabbits
Everyone likes rabbits, unless they suffer from something like lagomorphobia (such as the lovely Anya). However, rabbits don’t have a huge starring role on the screen in the past. We’ve had a few, of course (hence this list), but they just haven’t quite made it in the way dogs, cats, mice or other household pets have. This, I feel, is a real pity. The list below shows my top 5 movies that feature rabbits – and note by ‘feature’ I meant that they play an ...

Top 5 ways to save money on lunch

I work in the heart of Covent Garden, London which is fantastic. There’s a lot to do at lunch time, and can easily go into one of the many shops around and deposit a lot of my monthly salary on clothes, electronic goods and other random items I deem to be ‘essential’ in my impulse buying status. For lunch I usually go to a lovely little place nearby that does comforting home cooked food such as lasagne, cauliflower cheese and stews – nothing I can’t do myself, ...

Top 5 most irritating gameshows to watch

I love game shows, and will watch most drivel that’s put on in front of me. My favourite ones are those which ask general knowledge questions such as the fantastic 15 to 1 and, to a lesser extent, University Challenge (but only as the questions are much harder). However, there are some game shows that are just irritating to watch. Most of the time the format of the show is fine, but the combination of stupid contestants and often easy answers results in the viewer shouting obscenities ...

5 Games I’m looking forward to in 2007

It’s nearing the end of August and there are going to be a lot of games released between now and Christmas which is great for us gamers, but not so great for the bank balance or social life. Nowadays a game will cost you £40 or £50 in the shops, with about £10 off the RRP if you get it online through the likes of play.com…so you sometimes have to be careful about which games you do and don’t buy. There are, of course, some games which you simply must have and the following ...
