Some Unusual Online Stores

image I saw the link to this unusual toy store over at J-Walk Blog. It's One Eyed Bob's Inappropriate Toys for Children. I wish some of these toys actually were real because they'd be a lot more fun than the boring stuff I played with as a kid. For instance, what kid wouldn't love a Volcano Human Sacrifice Kit, or an Aztec Human Sacrifice Kit that includes real frog hearts?

Poking around on the site, I discovered that the same server hosted a bunch of other fanciful stores, presumably all created by Andrew Lehman (to whom the site is registered). Here they are:

  • The Creationist Fossil Shop: "On Day Three the Creator fashioned an amazing array of plant life. He mischeviously and creatively imbedded them perfectly in the firmament made the day before."

  • Providing its customers with the finest in alternative communications since 1993. For instance, if you choose their ground courier service "an able-bodied young man or woman will deliver your message or small parcel (20 lbs. or less) on foot within a 100-mile radius within two weeks."

  • Zen Sears Home & Auto Center: "Is a car that holds 20 gallons, that contains 10 gallons, half full or half empty?"

referenced article Half full or half empty.
Thats easy:
If the container had been full and it is now at one-half, it is half empty.
If the container wasempty and it is now at one-half, it is half full.
