Jean Jackets from the 1600's

Submitted Wednesday, September 29, 2010 by adam | Category: Odd
Lifted from Kottke.org, "The word "denim" comes from "serge de Nîmes", a fabric made in Nîmes, France, and "blue jeans" comes from "Bleu de Genes", blue pants made in Genoa (aka Genes)." So a recent discovery of several paintings depicting people wearing the fabric is noteworthy.

Alzheimer's patients foiled by fake bus stop

Submitted Friday, July 23, 2010 by adam | Category: Odd
Brilliant, but sad. The bus stop, in front of the Benrath Senior Centre in the western city of Düsseldorf, is an exact replica of a standard stop, with one small difference: buses never stop there. The purpose is to "trap" Alzheimer patients that wander away from the hospital. "They know the green and yellow bus sign and remember that waiting there means they will go home.” The result is that errant patients now wait for their trip home at the bus stop, before quickly forgetting why they were there in the first place."

Submitted Tuesday, February 02, 2010 by adam | Category: Odd
"Warren E. Strickland, 31, of Fairbanks, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Tuesday for throwing a double-decker taco at a manager of the Taco Bell restaurant on University Avenue." The great thing about this...the exact same thing played out at a MacDonald's in Portland...I just happened to be in line at the time.

Top Oddball Interview Questions Of 2009

Submitted Monday, January 18, 2010 by adam | Category: Odd
There are a couple of high-tech companies that are famous (or infamous, El Guapo) for asking seemingly bizarre questions during the interview process. Personally, I have had a few interviews at companies with a similar flair for the obscure. Glassdog.com, an anonymous employer review website, has collected some of its favorites for 2009. Does anybody have any favorite interview questions they would like to share?
