There are many many other famous robots here…who do you recognize? I recognize this guy and ohhhh this scary guy and him and Dorothy’s friend…oh man, who ISN’T here? (click the picture to make it bigger, yo.)
I just read (hat tip to Ypulse for the link!) that a teen boy from our very own Ohio has invented “manly” scented candles. Now, I’m not a dude myself, but I do turn up my nose at a flowery candle, so this caught my interest. Do you think you’d prefer a scented candle if it smelled like Pizza or Grandpa’s Pipe?
The library is closing at 9pm tonight (Thursday, December 23) and will reopen on Monday, December 27 at 9am. Happy holidays, everyone! Stay safe and warm!
This is the world’s shortest survey. It only has one question.
If an alien ray blanketed the Earth making all iPods able to hold only one song, what song would be in yours?
Or to put it another way, if you could only listen to one song from now till eternity, what would it be?
Comment with your answer! The winning song will be posted soon!
Teen volunteer novelwriter saw this post online and shared it with us:
As both books and classic red phone booths are becoming a thing of the past, a village in Somerset, England has merged the two rare commodities.
The bright red old phone booth was purchased for just 1 pound and remodeled as the smallest library in the world. Residents line up to swap their already read books for new ones left by other patrons. Over 100 books and a variety of movies and music CDs are available at this tiny library.
What do you think? Would you visit this phone booth if it was your only library? Would you like a tiny library like this right around the corner from your house?
Fess up…you know you’re addicted to online games. All you have to do is start one and then it becomes a competition of unstoppable proportions…you just need ONE MORE TRY and you will WIN (err, maybe that’s just what happens to me when I play Solitaire!). So how cool is it that there is now a way to get your fix AND donate to a good cause?
We’ve partnered with GamesThatGive, a new website that generates money for charity (us) when you play their free online games:
- Bubble Burst (kind of like snood)
- Word Search
- Drull (cool puzzle game)
How does it work? Sponsors advertise on the games, and 70% of every dollar they spend goes to Do Something! Check out GamesThatGive.net and tell some friends about this fun new way to help Do Something change the world.
Sounds cool, huh? I’ll be checking it out just as soon as I beat Solitaire…
FuFu is a Ghana dish. You can have it with any stew. Also, Bonku is wonderful.
Chuck Norris is too cool for school. When he went to school, he got an A%20 for roundhouse kicking, so he graduated from school at age 9.

Today the Westerville Public Library decided to cease ordering and circulating books. “Ehhh…no one really reads them anyway,” said librarian Becky O’Neil. “People only ask me for movies, videogames, and computer help. We thought that this was the best way to address what people want.”
Of course, this decision raises the issue of what to do with the aisles and aisles of books currently housed in the library, as well as the many thousands of titles which, in spite of this current trend, seem to be checked out to people.
Several library teens were surveyed for ideas about what to do with the books. Suggestions included “build a fort,” “coffee table,” “drink coaster,” “foot rest,” and, in cases of extreme desperation, “sled.”
Other teens described why they won’t miss the books. “i nly spk n txt,” one girl said. “idk wuts a bk?” Another said, “If it hasn’t been made into a movie or a TV show or an online game, it might as well be written on a stone tablet.” Yet another chimed in, “The problem with books is they don’t work with my ADD, so — hey look, a bunny!”
The teens wished to remain anonymous.
