Diner Patents

Now this is cool (though maybe just to me):, a site that features early architectural patent drawings, has a whole section on Diner designs. There are some standard drawings as well as ones that look like they’re straight out of a Zippy cartoon. There aren’t a whole lot featured at the moment, but what’s there is really interesting.

Some may be interested in their car collection, others in drawings by decade. Still others will want a ray gun.

Good, clean fun.

This is great! I want to go to the Do-nut Dinette.

I used to have a link to a website that featured architectural floorplans from famous TV homes like Leave it to Beaver and even Mary Richard's Minneapolis apartment. Way cool.

Here it comes!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
