People are strange, and this site is stranger

Someone on the MIMlist listserve posted a link to this site, which hosts a collection of strange but true things. So many items to choose from, but a random sampling of my favorites:

    Strange-sounding organization: The Institute of Totally Useless Skills

    Line from a recommendation letter to describe a person who is totally inept: "I most enthusiastically recommend this candidate with no qualifications whatsoever."

    Unusual U.S. city law: In Portland, Oregon, you can not rollerskate into a public restroom

    Strange actual classified ad: Illiterate? Write today for free help.

I won't even go into the odd things that people eat section--eew! But it's a great way to waste some time, especially when, like me today, you don't have any time to waste.
