No Ruts About It

Life. What a crazy ride. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.” Ah, so true. So true.

Wait, no it’s not! Life is a steaming pile of blah. You get up everyday in the same bed, you pull on the same ratty Ghostbusters t-shirt (man, you really gotta wash that thing), you sludge off to the same boring job and eat the same Ramen-capers-and-tuna casserole before slowly crying yourself to sleep while the same reruns of Bewitched drone off in the night. Life is an experiment my ass.

Luckily, now you can add just a tiny bit of excitement to your otherwise dull existence, thanks to Unrut.com. With this Google Maps mashup, you can type in whatever it is you’re looking for (I would suggest dry cleaners) plus an address or Zip code and it spits back a list of purveyors in your area.

Chicago? Pssh... been there, done that.

Here’s where it gets all unexpected on your ass: as you try the listed restaurants, coffee shops and bars, it keeps track of where you’ve been. Subsequent searches for the same thing bring up new locations and forgo the old – giving you a small semblance of exhilaration.

Maybe next you can start watching television shows from the past twenty years! Hell, anything’s possible.
