Saturday Time Wasters

A couple of perfectly good wastes of time for a Saturday. First, from Bing at Happy Jihad's House of Pancakes, you can find out what you did in a past life . Here's mine:
Your past life diagnosis:

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Italy around the year 575. Your profession was that of a librarian, priest or keeper of tribal relics.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Seeker of truth and wisdom. You could have seen your future lives.
Others perceived you as an idealist illuminating path to future.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your lesson is to develop a kind attitude towards people, and to acquire the gift of understanding and compassion.

Do you remember now?
Another minor entertainment: Virtual Bubble Wrap:

Sometimes we miss stupid things when we move into a more green lifestyle. Yes, one of the things I most miss is the easily-reusable, but non-biodegradable, petro-chemical-based packing material, bubble wrap.

I don't miss using miss destroying it. Turning it from a useful product into a sheet of pure trash. And while I know that popping bubble wrap is no good for anyone, that doesn't stop me from wanting to do it.

Which is why I'm so happy that I've found a way to artificially pop bubble wrap in the virtual world. Check it out, and don't forget to go into manic mode.

Hope that someone's Saturday isn't totally wasted.
Added: And Aliens in the news:

A GOVERNMENT investigation into a series of unexplained fires in fridges, televisions and mobile phones in an Italian village has concluded that the responsibility lies with "aliens testing secret weapons".

In scenes similar to the drama series The X-Files, Canneto di Caronia on Sicily was the centre of world attention three years ago after residents reported everyday household objects - electrical appliances, a pile of wedding presents and furniture - bursting into flames.

Dozens of experts including scientists, electrical engineers and military experts, arrived in the village, in the north of the island, to investigate. One amazed scientist reported seeing an unplugged electrical cable burst into flames.

No word on the legal status of the aliens.

Loved the virtual bubble wrap. Ironically I just had something that was wrapped in the stuff and I automatically began popping it. I wonder why it is so irresistible?
