Welcome to another edition of TGIF. I hope that the week has treated you well and that you're looking forward to a nice weekend either alone or in the company of those close to you. Or maybe you're meeting totally new people this time around. If the week has been a tough one and you feel like a soldier walking off a battle field, tired and in tatters…the weekend is here. Rejuvenate, restore and heal :)

Without further ado…

Stuff I really liked this week:

Big long list of Fail – a long strip of images, sure to give you a bit of a chuckle.

Living without cash and doing fine – this is an interesting story about a chap who lives happily with his solar powered laptop in the wilderness.

Pomegranate Bear art – a Pomegranate was harmed in the making of this cool art

6 dollar shirts – really cool t-shirts and they are only $6 a pop!

20 social media comics – well I love comics and these are funny and colourful, what more could a Friday want?


By the year 2012 there will be approximately 17 billion devices connected to the Internet.
