Will It Blend?

This site, Will It Blend?, has been mentioned everywhere lately but in case one of you haven't seen it yet, it's a quality way to kill twenty minutes.

Basically, it's a website to sell blenders. Expensive friggin' blenders, that is. $400 for the home version and they don't list the price of their commercial blenders which usually means they are ridiculously expensive.

Regardless, the fun part of the site is their series of videos where they destroy crap in their blenders. 53 Hot Wheels are turned to dust. Cans of Coke explode. Hockey pucks become instantly unplayable. And on and on. Plus, the weird overly folksy nature of the host Tom Dickson gives the whole experience a very campy feel.

My kids love, love, love this site.

Here's the video where he pulverizes his iPod. They later sold the "iPod dust" on eBay for $765 to raise money for charity.
