Tiklyz

Tiklyz

“Tiklyz was started when we fondly missed the small dots that we wore on our foreheads when we were little girls growing up back in India,” writes Pallovi Aroro in her pitch for Tiklyz. This is the part where I would usually say something culturally insensitive, but that isn’t going to happen here because I’m actually fond of those dots myself. My wife is Korean and they have a tradition of putting big red dots on their cheeks for special occasions – it’s charming. Tiklyz, however, are not charming.

Face-Time with Santa

Face-Time with Santa

Lisa Jameson hates Christmas and she isn’t very fond of children either. Nothing unique there – most of New York City fits this description.

But if you can make your way through the maze of contradictions…

Hidden Ark

Hidden Ark

The Hidden Ark project hopes to recreate Noah’s Ark as a Florida theme park. It’s a pretty simple concept, and the guys leading the project have put together a slick presentation that shows 3-D renderings of the finished park. They want to show that “God’s word is real” by recreating an ark that is as accurate to the biblical account as possible, right down to the animals. Putting aside the question of whether “God’s word is real,” let’s consider this idea from a more practical standpoint. In the virtual fly-through of the ark park, you’ll notice that the boat is…
