How to Win at Monopoly
Temperature map showing how quickly you get your incremental investment back
  • Build a xylophone out of almost anything – How-tos on building xylophones from everything from pipes, bottles, wood, wrenches, even stone.
  • Fran Holland’s Balloon Organ – Uses a bunch of standard plumbing fittings, tuned with sliders and balloons to produce weird, eerie, bagpipe-style music. A large inflated balloon to one side provides the steady air pressure for the drone.
  • The ‘Winners’ of the Wired News Saddest-Cubicle Contest – David Gunnells, an IT guy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham has his desk penned in by heavily used filing cabinets in a windowless conference room, near a poorly ventilated bathroom and a microwave.

  • Get 10% discount on Image-Line products – Use this link and get a 10% discount on FL Studio, Deckadance, Maximus, Morphine, Sytrus, Toxic 3 DirectWave, and more (someone recently use my promo code to buy an item at the Image-Line store, thanks David!, so I figured I’d plug my code once more in order to gain enough credits to actually be able to purchase something through the IL affiliate program).
