JFK's Letters to His Mistress Go Up at Auction

Our nation's 35th president was many things: handsome, good at yachting and swordsman enough to make Sinatra blush. Suffice it to say, his legendary charm extended to these love letters, now up for auction, in which he seduces a blonde Swede using the power of his pen. Basically, it's sexting for the '50s.

Preview Your Tattoos

It was only a matter of time, we suppose: Virtually Inked lets you upload a photo, pick out a tattoo and preview how it will look on your fine physique. Be warned, however: such an important service does not come free, though it does cost less than finding out the hard way whether that scorpion/Chinese symbol/girlfriend's name would look good on your bicep/back/face.

An Angry Brit in Your Pocket

If there is one thing you need in life, it's probably not an app that shouts British slang when you push a button. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't pick up the Drive-By Abuser Pocket Shouter, filled with quotes from an obscure British sketch show—the next best thing to having Ricky Gervais in your pocket.

The Filler Item Finder for Amazon

It's one of life's little frustrations: you have to spend $25 to get free shipping at Amazon, but that Kenny Loggins compilation only costs $20. That's where this site comes in—type in how much you have to go, and it will show you a range of options by category. You'd been meaning to pick up Lethal Weapon 2 on VHS anyway.

And now for a public service announcement: every time you tweet your whereabouts, check in on Foursquare or otherwise let the Internet know that you're out enjoying the good life, there's a good chance that information will appear here—a blog that broadcasts when people are not at home. Dangerous stuff, or…the beginning of the greatest heist this side of Danny Ocean.
