Fast Fives Video Game: High Five Here, Fist Bump There

Mailchimp Fastfives

Looking for a game to wean you off Flappy Bird? Then you should definitely check out Fast Fives. It’s a game that tests your hand-eye coordination in the silliest way possible. Basically, you give the virtual hands on the screen high fives (and low fives and side fives) as well as fist bumps if the virtual fists call for it.

You’ll have to avoid blades, hot dogs, chicks, fish, and the occasional foot along the way, and the hands appear (and disappear) faster as the game progresses. You can give it a go here.

Ship Your Enemies Glitter: Give Enemies the Gift of Glitter

Ship Your Enemies Glitter

Send your ex, horrible boss, frenemy, and everyone on your hitlist an envelope filled with glitter. Call it a glitter bomb, if you will. Nobody wants to get glitter on their hands, much less on their clothes and furniture, because they’re a pain to get rid of completely. But if you’re bitter about something and want vengeance for whatever injustice you were made to go through, then head on over to Ship Your Enemies Glitter.

They’ll basically do what their URL says: ship your enemies glitter. Just fork over AUD $10 (that’s about US $8), give them the address of your sworn enemy, and they’ll take care of the rest.

Life In Review: Warby Parker’s ‘Make-Your-Own Annual Report’

Make-Your-Own Annual Report

Businesses have annual reports to assess how the past year went. Minor victories, market trends, spikes and dips in sales… it’s everything you wanted to know about the past year’s performance in a nutshell. So why not get something like that for your life? Granted, Warby Parker’s ‘Make-Your-Own Annual Report’ is more of a novelty than an actual, factual, and true-to-life record of how 2014 went for you– but it’s definitely the most amusing annual report you’ll ever come across.

The report is generated after you answer a series of silly and seemingly irrelevant question (or wait, are they really irrelevant?) Well, you be the judge.

Nic Cage, In Your Face, (No) Thanks to nCage Browser Extension

elJtW9W

 

Nicolas Cage is a great actor, although he hasn’t been in many good movies lately. Regardless whether you agree or disagree with that, I’m fairly certain you wouldn’t want to see his mug plastered all over your computer screen. Unless you’re his ultimate mega fan, that is. A browser extension that does exactly just that is called nCage. It’s perfect for pranksters and for the aforementioned mega fans, because it basically turns every image on your browser window into a photo featuring none other than Nicolas Cage.

They’ve mixed it up, too, so you’ll be treated to a slew of Nic Cages with various expressions, hair styles, and eye sizes (yes, there’s one where he does the crazy eyes.) Check out nCage here.

Emojli is a Social Network That Only Uses Emoji

Emojli

What’s the world coming to? Or rather, what’s the online world coming to? Facebook is still in the lead when it comes to social networks, but that’s not stopping new ones like Emojli from cropping up. The name gives a lot away as to how the network will be operating. If you guessed emojis, then you’re spot on, because emojis are the center of the social network. In fact, it’s what Emojli is all about, because it’s apparently an “emoji-only” network.

That should be self-explanatory. All status updates will be comprised of emoji and that’s what its creators are counting on to bolster their claims of zero spam because, well, how else can you spam people using emojis only? (Notably, there’s an emoji for poop so, you know, there’s that.)

PareUp Pairs Restaurants With Customers Who Want to Buy Leftovers

PareUp1

On one hand, we’ve got people going to sleep on empty stomachs. On the other, we’ve got restaurants throwing away leftovers (AKA perfectly good food) every day when it’s time to close up. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how things work–or is it? Aiming to change this, even on a small scale, are the folks behind PareUp.

It’s an upcoming app that will let diners “pair up” with participating retailers and restaurants that will be selling their leftovers at discounted prices.

Songtapper: Find the Name of That Song By Tapping

Songtapper

 

So you just heard the most awesome song, but weren’t able to fire up SoundHound in time to capture enough snippets of it to search for its title. You could always look up the lyrics, but Google won’t be able to help you out if you can’t remember enough relevant lines.

Your last hope–and best bet, at this point–is SongTapper. It’s basically a search engine that searches for songs based on its beats. If you can hum along to the tune or remember the intro or sound of its chorus, then you can just tap out the rhythm by tapping on your space bar and SongTapper will do the rest for you.

It’s not the most accurate thing in the world, but the results might just amaze you. Check it out HERE.
