Item 145: You hate finishing other people’s sentences, so doesn’t it make you laugh so hard you squirt milk out of your nose when you…

Team Amaryllis_fantasticLovesunicorns

Comment: This actually happened while we were discussing another Gishwhes item. Only it was not milk (water, so plain!), and it was not from my nose that the fluid squirted out (mouth, so boring!). We though we ought to share our experience. -saraden

Item 116: Submit two images, side-by-side: let's see what existential angst looks like next to what the meaning of life is. - Stephanie Magnolia

Team ApocalypsersLovesAwesomeButts

Item 118: Time-lapse this submission to 30 seconds or less. Paint a Bob Ross painting. We must see both the painter replicating the Bob Ross painting and the playback of the Bob Ross video the painter is replicating. You must paint in real-time while he is painting. The video should end with a side-by-side comparison of your masterpiece and Bob Ross’s.


Comment: Beauty is Everywhere painting with bob ross with the bob ross remix. Video camera died halfway through the painting unknowingly though. :(

Item 158: If there’s one thing all of us over the age of 35 are nostalgic for it’s the rotary dial phone. We pine for that satisfaction of being able to insert our fingers in that hole and spin the dial. Help bring us back to those halcyon days: Make a smart-phone app that interfaces with a real, old-fashioned rotary phone. (Note: this must not be an app that renders a digital simulation of a rotary phone. It must be an app that somehow works in concert with an actual rotary phone.)
