JUNE 3, 2008

Want to know what people think of YOUR face? Upload a photo of your mug at www.FaceStat.com, a website that offers, quote, "market research for the individual".

Here's how it works: Go to the site, upload your picture, and they'll ask random people to answer questions about your age, ethnicity, intelligence, political affiliation, trustworthiness, wealth, and relationship status... based only on your photo.

Within a few hours, they'll give you a free set of detailed statistics showing how people feel about your face.

There's a website specifically for ex-girlfriends and ex-wives who want to get rid of the stuff given to them by their former boyfriends and husbands.

Appropriately enough, it's called Ex-Boyfriend Jewelry dot com, and proudly displays the motto, quote, "You don't want it, he can't have it back." The site allows users to buy, sell, trade, and even blog about the gifts they no longer want.

In addition to the more commonly traded items of rings, necklaces, and earrings, there's a section called, quote, "Gifts That Should Have Been Jewelry", where jilted lovers can unload everything from sexy underwear to vacuum cleaners.

The women using the site aren't necessarily bitter about ditching the stuff their men gave them. Most say they're just looking for some extra cash, either to pay rent, or to cover the expense of a new relationship.

You've probably never heard of 89-year-old Fredric J. Baur of Cincinnati, Ohio... but he blessed the world with one of the greatest inventions ever... the Pringles can.

Even though Pringles cans just look like tennis cans filled with chips... the can was designed with a special lining that keeps potato chips crisp.

Of all the things Frederic invented, that was his proudest accomplishment. In fact, he was so proud of his invention that when Frederic died last month, it was his final request that he be buried... inside a Pringles can.

Yes... after Frederic was cremated, his family poured some of his remains into a Pringles can and buried him.
