Subj: Predictive Potato

The No Potato

Several years ago, whilst on the toilet, I came up with a genius alternative to the Magic-8 Ball. Not wanting to infringe any copyrights, I set about making my creation, which I named "The No Potato".

The idea is simple. The No Potato will provide answers to SOME of your questions. To ask the No Potato a question, simply write the word "No" on both sides of your chosen spud. Throw it into the air and ask away. When it lands, as if by magic, your answer will be displayed on the tuberous item in your hands.

There is a bit of a learning curve: You will soon discover that questions that result in a one word negative answer work best, but have a go, see how you get on. I have already successfully used mine to as questions such as "Does my pet whelk like having the name 'Thucydides'?" and "Are Rich Tea biscuits made of hummus?"

Individual potatoes can be supplied at £6.87 each, if you don't have any of your own.

Subj: Have a pint with me.

A screenshot of bagpuss.org

It was time that my decades-old website that I used to promote a selection of my nonsense output was retired, so I made a new one. But it runs slower than my walking pace after 8 pints, and actually using it feels like a perpetual hangover. Which is a coincidence, because it is tenuously based around beermats and pints!

Still, I like the atmosphere, and the rings left behind after your pint are quite satisifying. And ultimately some the content that it sends you to is reasonably good. Some of it.

Subj: i pod™

i pod™

so i was in the park listening to music on my Sony™ MZ-N1™ (Dark Blue™), when a guy came up to me and said "do you even i pod™?"

so i went on the internet and found out about this thing called an i pod™. it's slightly bigger than my Sony™ MZ-N1™ (Dark Blueplayer but has a lot more songs on it, so naturally i had to get it.

it has really improved my workflow and has made me many many friends. i would recommend an i pod™ to everyone, especially if they get the matching i dog™. thank you for your time.

Subj: monarchy is underrated

the monarchy functioned for centuries as the only form of government in almost every nation. countries like france and italy believed that, while the monarch was only a man or woman like any other citizen, the monarchy itself was a god given right and the king or queen must be protected and upheld on the strength of it. meanwhile britain was killing their king or whatever, but my point is, that it is somewhat ungrateful to utterly cast aside the monarchy as something unthinkable after so many centuries of active service. i would like to put forward the idea of something of a democratic monarchy, wherein the monarch does not have full power and is somewhat hampered by a fairly elected congress and senate, but nevertheless exists as a sort of living standard for the people to rally around. (no,not like the russian revolution at all.) i would like to recommend this form of government for the newly founded Vmail Government.
Thank You.

Gratings, my fellow Cheese Enthusiasts.
I have been observing you for a long time now. But today I finally decided to post. My first question is this: Will you join me in becoming my Cheesy friends? Cheesians, if you will. My second question: What is your favorite kind of cheese? and why is that your favorite kind?
Farewell for now... I will be back soon

Sysadmin note: this’d better not be some kind of cheesy cult/revolution

Subj: The Best Film You’ve Never Seen

Kenji Sugimoto and Thomas Harvey look at Einstein’s brain in a jar

No. 14: Relics: Einstein's Brain (1994)

One evening in 1994, I was on my own in the house and settled down in front of the TV, ending up on BBC2.

A documentary was following Japanese professor Kenji Sugimoto on a quest to discover where Albert Einstein’s brain had ended up after his death. Over the next hour my jaw dropped and my mind was boggled.

The trail eventually leads to Thomas Harvey, initially thought dead, who brings out jars containing the brain then cuts a piece off on the kitchen chopping board to give as a souvenir. Sugimoto celebrates in a karaoke bar, and it’s revealed that Harvey is now an elderly apprentice in a factory.

It all seemed too perfectly bizarre, too on-the-nose... and was being broadcast on April Fools’ Day. I sat bemused, not knowing what to think; no one I knew caught it and I couldn’t simply look it up online.

It took years to fully confirm that yes, it was 100% real. You can watch it on YouTube; even though I’ve spoiled the ending, it’ll still be one of the oddest things you’ve ever seen.

Next time: the end is nigh!

Subj: General Advice.

Hey! I'm a new user to the Vole.wtf website, btw I love it! I'm currently a senior in high school, as I'm doing good overall with it and friends/peers. However, I've been struggling with maintaining my school life just in keeping stuff caught up and turned in on time, along with keeping up with work and family. And well also, my overall health and wellbeing. While I'm trying to keep my physical health in good shape, since it's going downhill. Along with staying on track with family and things going on within it, since I've heard that my grandfather is on his deathbed, and that's been worrisome. As well as staying on schedule with personal work that is among me and my friends (it's a roleplay server on Discord that I direct and narrate for). In overall, I've been stressing out with that and the only way I cope with it is just by ignoring my stress and forcing myself to remain calm and happy, which I am aware of not being healthy whatsoever.

With all of that being said, I could really use some advice with managing all of this. Or even just life advice in general, please.

Sincerely, Vex

Subj: Calling 119 GONE WRONG!

a picture of an upside down police car

Today was (not) Opposite Day, I (purposely) stubbed my toe, it (didn't) hurt.
So, I (didn't) call 119 because it was (not) an emergency.
(Not) a while later, there was (not) an upside down police car that (didn't) come to my house.

Subj: "daft"

hello, the people of Vole.WTF or as I will be referring to you all as Volers. (Then again this could just be one guy doing all of this which would be quite impressive, good on you if that is the case.) I am from across the pond I will be using state words my deepest apologizes, I also don't have amazing typing skills, sorry! I would like to compliment you on Voleflix, it was very interesting to explore, and I found the content quite cool considering some of the films are nearly 100 years old. my favorite of the mini games though was probably 17th century death Roullet, I appreciate old things, such as art, fashion, architecture, mythos, and sometimes battles/wars, I am typing this in a dress I made for a renaissance festival. I find this website very cool. at the moment I do not have any ideas for things to add to the website but if I do I will probably email. then again, I will probably email for fun.
Luke warm regards
