An email came to my inbox via my Kindle:

Wowchers for Linda: 3D Virtual Reality Heads

I’m not gonna lie, the thought of floating heads, real or not, freaked me out more than a little; but I had to check the email because I just couldn’t imagine how that would work.  And really, what would be the point of a virtual reality head?  Would you take it to work and say to your colleagues, ‘Look at the size of my pimple’? You’d have to pass it off as a pimple because who wants to work with a person with two heads?  Though it would come in handy during boring meetings, when the head could pay attention and you could doze off for an hour.  You’d have to ensure the head knew not to eat the biscuits, though…talk about messy.

I rather enjoyed meandering on the possibilities of my must-have future floating head.  It was a bit of a letdown, then, when I opened the email, to see that my Kindle had merely cut the title short.  What was really on offer were 3D Virtual Reality Headsets.


Reminds me of the Freecycle offer that once landed in my inbox.  I’ve mentioned this one before but it’s worth repeating:

Offered: One child.

Seems they’d pressed ‘enter’ too quickly because what they meant to offer was one child’s bicycle. 

I swear it’s a true story.

Talking of Freecycle, I can’t remember where  I read it but this story’s a little more apocryphal:

Saw advert on Freecycle this morning: “Wanted: hair dryer for my wife.”

Wonder how many emails he’ll get with, “Sounds like a fair exchange.”

You know it is time to reassess your relationship with your computer when….

  • You wake up at four in the morning to go to the bathroom and stop to check your email on the way back to bed.
  • You turn off your computer and get an awful empty feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.
  • You decide to stay in university for another year, just for the free internet access.
  • You laugh at people with 28.8 modems.
  • You start using smileys 🙂 in your snail mail.
  • You find yourself typing “com” after every period when using a word processor.com
  • You can’t correspond with your mother because she doesn’t have a computer.
  • When your email inbox shows “no new messages” you feel really depressed.
  • You don’t know the gender of your three closest friends because they have nondescript screen names and you never bothered to ask.
  • Your family always knows where you are.
  • In real life conversations, you don’t laugh, you just say “LOL, LOL.”
  • After reading this message, you immediately forward it to a friend.
