Some web sites for your consideration

I stumbled onto two interesting web sites this week. The first is of practical value, the other is purely for entertainment.

The firstweb site is transmaterial. It has information and web links on new materials. Are you looking for fiber reinforced flexible concrete, light emitting tiles, vacuum insulated insulating panels, "green" recycled laminate? This is the place. Some of the materials reviewed are commercially available others are in development. The emphasis is on materials for architectural or industrial design applications. The web site is an advertisement for a book the author sells which provides samples and information on some of the materials.

The other website is dangerously fun. It has videos and instructions for pranks and tricks. Some of the tricks are harmless amusement. For some others think twice before emulating them yourself. Some of their tricks are quite dangerous.
