The Varieties of the Balloon Hat Experience
It's not every day you see African tribesmen wearing balloon hats. Follow a photographer
as he travels across the globe taking pictures of everyone from soldiers to Buddhist monks
modeling his balloon fashions.
Looking for your soul mate but don't know where to start? How about the morning commute?
Let being stuck in traffic work in your favor. All you have to do is put up a special
Bumper Bait bumper sticker, and romance might be at the next exit ramp. With catchy phrases
like "Honk Now, Chat Tonight" and "Caught You Looking," you can't help but wonder what kinds
of emails you'll get.
If you like entering contests and you read comics, then this is the spot for you. Every week

Solemates: The Century in Shoes
For every decade there seems to be a shoe that personifies the spirit of the times
- the platform shoe from the '70s, the aerobics tennis shoe from the '80s and
go-go boots of the '60s. In this interactive tribute to shoe fashion, you
can gaze at footwear up close and personal.

with a list of liabilities.
Postal Trucks for Sale
Wondering what your next cruise mobile will be? Should you test-drive a new sport utility
vehicle or a shiny BMW? If you really want to stand out in traffic, why not buy a used
postal truck? Think of all the attention you'll get! The valet parking attendents won't
know how to operate it. It'll be great. On this site there's contact information
on how to buy one in your area.
