Fund THIS, Venture Capital...

The Internet of Useless Things is a parody site full of bad 'connected-ness' ideas,
like FitSpoon, "a connected spoon that tracks your eating speed and compares with others via a cloud database. When you’re eating too fast, holes open in the spoon releasing the contents."
and the euphemism-filled ThroneMaster that lets you "gamify your daily motions." [more inside]

"But you can't use toilet paper if it's still attached, so I made this cutting blade here, which I securely attached..." (SLYT)

PC Jr - or - Honey, I Shrunk The Bits

Fancy a $25 PC XT clone? With full Hercules graphics compatibility, peripheral support, and able to run MS-DOS and Windows 3.0? All you need is a Raspberry Pi, a C compiler, and 8086tiny, the world's smallest full PC emulator. Clocking in at around 25k of source code, this marvel of modern science is yours to do with as you will. But wait, there's more - you get the full BIOS code _and_ binary thrown in! (Also runs on just about anything 32-bit, if you don't fancy a Pi). If that's too big for comfort, a 4043 byte Obfuscated C version, winner of the 2013 ioccc championship, is also available.

Does What It Says On The Homepage

The Useless Web serves a collection of some of the most frivolous, insignificant and worthless websites (many of which were previously seen here).
Obvious Warning: May contain sound, flashing images, old memes or peanuts. Well, probably not peanuts.

Super Useless Super Powers

Super Useless Super Powers. A cute website with dinky cartoons and fun descriptions of those super powers which, if you were to be blessed with one, would be pretty much damn-near useless.

People with lots of time have novel takes on Star Wars

Two new takes on the world of Star Wars: "The public choice economics of Star Wars: A Straussian reading"; and "A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope:Reconsidering Star Wars IV in the light of I-III." Were the Jedi actually useless and powerhungry? Was R2-D2 the true hero of the rebellion? Most importantly, where do people find the time to come up with this stuff?
