Is he the world's greatest juggler? You judge. How much do you think the war in Iraq costs? Check the number (in real time). Elvis would have loved her work: she's all shook up.


Busy hands


Jason Garfield considers himself the world's greatest juggler. That is not easy to assess, but these short videos show just how good he is. A few are difficult to believe. Well worth a look (if you like juggling, of course). www.jasongarfield.com/video_clips.html


Pop the bubbles


You know that bubble-popping plastic that is used in packaging? How many of you like to pop those bubbles? Well, now you can do it digitally. It may be odd, but you can click on a bubble button and pop it. www.virtual?bubblewrap.com. You can do it on your Palm Pilot as well. www.freewarepalm.com/graphics/bombel.shtml


Moving videos


This is not easy to explain. Suppose you picked up a sphere that had a small screen in it. Suppose, also, there was a person in the screen. Now suppose that person would jump about in tune with how hard you shook the sphere. Well, I did say it was difficult. But it is worth a look. www.camilleutterback.com/potentobjects.html


Cost of the war


Perhaps it was just a matter of time, but somebody has finally put up a website that shows the cost of the war in Iraq. It is reminiscent of those old 'national debt' clocks that showed the dreadful state of the United States economy back in the 1980s. This is similar, but a little worse. http://costofwar.com/
