Reinvent Yourself

Here is a cool (promotional) idea: a box of imaginary business cards, customized to your name - featuring different profession for you for each day of the year.
See how you name would look in such occupations as "Distraction Inventor", "Day Colorer", "Desert Moulder"... Perhaps something might even click with you; but don't quit your day job just yet.



See the whole collection on Year of Creativity site. You can also create and customize your own business cards or send a particular business one to a friend.

Good addition to our "Tank Accidents" page:



UPDATE: this tank did not loose its track. Quite the contrary: it's the only way to change the tracks on a tank.. One of the links gets unbolted, the tank drives off, a new track gets laid in place and the tank drives on it again.
