Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses. Not that anybody was really paying a huge amount of attention to QR Codes, but now you have one more reason to ignore them. Maxing out your dropbox referrals. Rate everything on Jotly, where everything about your life is exciting to everyone (hilarious parody site). For the popular music buffs: The Billboard Wayback Machine. A reddit discussion asked whether you could destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if you traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion? Great discussion ensued, and now it's getting a movie deal. The Argos Catalogue from 1976 is a fascinating look back. If you're wondering what the Occupy Wall Street movement is all about, these infographics and data will help you sort it out. People are notoriously quiet on the London tube. Here is one man's quest to strike up some conversations. If anybody's looking to buy me a gift this holiday season, this camera would be acceptable (the body is $6800 -- seriously, if somebody's going to blow that kind of money on me, I've got some debt that I'd rather have disappear first). Siri is a neat little toy, but she says some random stuff. Fun story on data overload in MS Exchange (speaking of data overload, ever heard of a Zip bomb?) 20 Useful Windows Registry Hacks. The YouTube Insult Generator (might be handy for some of the videos below). The Lifehacker Workout: Exercise for Normal People. Playing Day Of Defeat as a photographer can bring out some interesting photos. Take the Lollipop -- I dare you. If you're looking to calibrate your fancy HDTV, this may help.
