Old(er) ... than they where

So this one might be a little random.

.... but Hanson (of mid-nineties horrific teen pop abortion "mmm bop") have come out with a new song and it's really really really good!

My mind was so blown I just had to share it.

They grew up just fine!

Porn ...

Food Porn that is.

I don't know about you Old Guys but the only thing I like more than eating amazing food, talking about it or making it is LOOKING AT luscious culinary creations.

Many of us have slightly kinky relationships with food (my Father once had to be left alone with a chocolate pizza. When we returned there was nothing but a sleepy Old Guy covered in powdered sugar).

Food Porn Daily has distilled this relationship in one slick end very sexy website.

It's a fairly simple concept best encapsulised by the slogan on the site: click, drool, repeat. Some of the photos even feature links to recipes.

The site has been around for a while but I thought I'd share it with you Old Guys anyway.

New stuff for Old Nerds ...

Everyday is a School Day.

So I know you Old Guys are smart. However, I also know that not everybody had access to an Ivy League education. Now you can and for free.

Academic Earth is an AMAZING site that allows you to audit courses from some of the top Universities in the world (Harvard, UCLA, MIT, Columbia etc). Full videos of lectures and lessons for entire courses are available for free. You don't even have to sign in or anything. It's like YouTube for mega nerds.

With courses like:
Geography of United States Elections
Science, Magic and Religion
Game Theory
Newton and the Enlightenment
Nonviolence: From Gandhi to Martin Luther King
New Testament History and Literature
Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?
The American Novel Since 1945

... to name a very few

you'd be absolutely nuts not to check it out. You can go to Uni for free in your jimmy jams. Can't beat that!

Let me know what you think and which courses you're into.
