- One in ten people are left-handed. I believe out of all the people who read this website, I am the only person who is left-handed (if I am wrong, send me an email.) I take great pride in being left-handed, and feel lucky that I was born in a time when parents and educators wouldn't try to teach a child to be right-handed. Here is a website dedicated to left-handed people. Drill through the website and take a look at the incredible number of famous athletes and actors who are left-handed. It's not a coincidence. There is a science to it. Send the link to your left-handed friends and family members. They will get a kick out of it:

- "No ship that small has a cloaking device, track it!" - Captain Needa, The Empire Strikes Back.

I cant believe Vader didnt whack this chump. Here is a link to an article about how real-life scientists are close to realizing this sci-fi staple:

- When I was a child, I loved to read the Guiness Book of World Records. I would buy each new edition, and spend countless hours memorizing all the facts and figures.

I assumed it would simply be one large advertisement for its print version, but instead the website has many of the records you would find in the book. Here is a link:

- I have been searching for a way to send large files to my friends, and I may have found it. The website, YouSendIt.com, allows you to send files up to 1 gigabyte (1 billion bytes) to anyone with an email address. The website stores the file on their servers for 7 days, and you download the file from a link they send you. The file is never actually sent to your email address. I havent tried it yet. The service appears to be free, but I wonder if there is some kind of spam-mail involved. Here is a link to the website. Give it a try, and let me know what you think of it:
