5 Most Annoying Cars

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery, Top Fivers on 02. Sep, 2008 | No Comments

It’s a well known fact that during the course of a lifetime the average human spends about 42 years in the car. 99% of that time consists of driving in heavy traffic, which means there are other vehicles all around you. Most of these vehicles are decent. There are some cars on the road, however, [...]

I Used A Mac, And I Liked It

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 05. Aug, 2008 | 15 Comments

I spent all last week in a cabin in the woods stuck using someone else’s Macbook Pro. I have never been a Mac user. I know some of the differences in the OS, but I’ve never learned how to really use one. I have sported a PC since I was 10. Having to suddenly switch [...]

Hypermilers = Stupid Drivers

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery, Theory & Philosophy on 19. May, 2008 | 11 Comments

On my daily web surf I came across this disturbing article. It details a guy who lives for hypermiling, which is a method of increasing your car’s gas mileage by making skillful changes in the way you drive, allowing you to save gas and thereby have an easier time withstanding the rising oil and gas [...]

10 Scary Abandoned Buildings

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 05. May, 2008 | 35 Comments

I grew up riding a bus to school that passed a mental hospital called Central State on the west side of Indianapolis. It was abandoned in the mid 90s, and has been around for over 100 years. People still tell stories of hauntings at the hospital, and it became especially frightening after it was abandoned. [...]

How To Screw Capital One

You know those business reply mail envelopes that clog up your mailbox from stupid junk mailers like Capital One – the ones that say “No Postage Necessary If Mailed In The US”? We both know that postage is, in fact, necessary to mail stuff. So, who is paying for this? It’s not you, me, or [...]

‘Nuther Leet

I’m convinced this number pops up way more often in my life than any other number. I’m viewer number ‘leet’ on this YouTube vid: Now if only I was worth a crap in WoW PVP. Then I’d really be leet.

Tommy Lee Jones’ Age

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gimcrackery on 10. Apr, 2008 | 3 Comments

I was watching Under Seige last night and realized Tommy Lee Jones has never been young. This movie came out in 1992 and he is exactly as old as he is now. His voice and appearance are exactly the same. He is omni-age. That’s what my friend and I used to call a lady in [...]

Blue Frost

I have created LIFE! In the form of a web template. It’s called Blue Frost, which I know sounds a lot like Blue Steel from Zoolander, but it’s just as killer. So far the template exists in two iterations: a plain vanilla HTML version that you can use as a theme for any old website, [...]

1337 Fresh

Today my wife and I went to Subway for lunch. The total cost of our meal was $13.37. If I had an iPhone like all you pie-in-the-sky gizmo-geeks out there, I could’ve taken a picture to prove it. You’ll just have to take my word for it.

We are really exploding here at GimMisc Industries. Not only has our LOLheads™ division been diversifying with very rare images of Coach Belichick (I gave them all raises to $3.25 an hour – they still have to provide their own equipment, though), but our brand new marketing & advertising department has launched! So far, GimMisc [...]
