1963 LeMans Tempest sells for $226,521

The eBay auction for this 1963 Pontiac LeMans Tempest started out innocently enough. Obtained after owner died. Appears to have original interior but no motor, no transmission. Body has a little rust and some dents. There's stuff in the trunk, but no key to open it. Opening bid nine days ago was a mere $500. After one week, eBay seller 123ecklin will pocket $226,521 before auction fees. What happened between Day 1 and Day 9 is an amazing story.

Drop: reviled by outsiders, Dutch delicacy stands the test of time

A black and chewy, often salty candy that turns most foreigners' stomachs, drop is savored in near daily handfuls by the Dutch who hardly leave home soil without it.

The average Dutchman eats about two kilograms (4.4 pounds) every year. Despite health warnings about over-indulgence, 32,000 tonnes of drop were bought by 16 million citizens in 2007 to the tune of some 196 million dollars.

Gizmodo's 20 Essential iPhone Apps

It's been four months almost to the day since iPhone 2.0 came, and we've been hitting the App Store hard every week ever since to sift through what's new in iPhone App land. This week, we've decided to hold back for a second, take a breath, and compile a different kind of list: the apps that many of us on staff actually use on a regular basis. If you have a new iPhone or iTouch just waiting to be filled up, or you feel like you may be missing some essentials in your collection, this is the list for you.

Unhappy people watch TV...

A new study by sociologists at the University of Maryland concludes that unhappy people watch more TV, while people who describe themselves as very happy spend more time reading and socializing. The study appears in the December issue of the journal Social Indicators Research.

Analyzing 30-years worth of national data from time-use studies and a continuing series of social attitude surveys, the Maryland researchers report that spending time watching television may contribute to viewers' happiness in the moment, with less positive effects in the long run.

Exploring SIlver City

A few weeks ago Deb and I headed south to Silver City, Idaho. Silver City was founded in 1864 and is really like stepping into a time machine.

It is a long and twisty road up to the 6200 foot elevation where the ghost town is located.

The vistas on the way up are fantastic.

Welcome to Silver City. The white building in the center was the Idaho Standard School for Silver City.

The Idaho Hotel built in 1866.

Why do women always feel colder than men?

Let the battle of the thermostat begin. Now that the evenings have grown dark and chilly, most people have switched on their central heating. But many are keeping the temperature low to save on fuel bills, which are expected to rise by 42 per cent this year. Home heating can spark fierce disagreement in couples. Some people sneakily crank up the thermostat when their partners aren't looking; others wear woolly hats and gloves indoors as an ostentatious protest at the temperature of the room.

Some people, it seems, feel the cold more than others. But why is this and is there anything we can do about it?

Research is emerging to suggest that our biological thermostats are set to slightly different levels. We all feel the cold to different degrees, depending on our gender, fitness, age, diet, how much sleep we have, and even the company we keep.

Expect less junk mail as marketers cut back

Marketers are generally a persistent lot, but they're beginning to think that bombarding your mailbox might not be worth it.

At the rate things are going, credit card companies will send a billion fewer unsolicited offers to consumers by the end of the year, dropping from 5.2 billion offers last year, according to data released yesterday by Synovate Mail Monitor, a market research firm. Home-equity credit mailings dropped 66 percent in the third quarter this year to 72.9 million, compared with 215 million in the same period last year, according to market research firm Mintel Comperemedia. Mortgage mailings dropped 44 percent to 182.4 million from 324.1 million in same period last year.

Following The Trail Of Toxic E-Waste



When 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley and his crew went to China to record the black market dismantling of electronic waste, or "e-waste," the experience was almost as hazardous for the 60 Minutes team as working with the toxic material is for poor Chinese workers.

Try something besides Airborne for cold prevention

Now that the cold and flu season is upon us, many people will be reaching for Airborne, the over-the-counter supplement that has claimed to prevent and cure viral infections.

Before you spend your hard-earned cash on Airborne, consider the following. In March, the manufacturers of Airborne agreed, as part of a class-action lawsuit, to refund more than $23 million to consumers who had purchased the product in the past.

Why is this?

One Man, Sixty-Four Parts, "Thriller" A'capella



From The Creator:

Here is a remake of the "Thriller" song that I've entirely recorded with my own voice, using 64 A'cappella tracks. There is therefore no instrument, synthetizer, beatbox, or even to sampler, but only the sound of my voice livened up with Reverb and slight Chorus on certain tracks.
