Pointless Blog Roundup Pointless Blog #3: Barcodepedia.com
Today's entry isn't necessarily a blog per se, but it's so spectacularly yawn-inducing that I thought it would be a crime not to mention it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Barcodepedia.
It's exactly what you think it is. Did you know that the ISBN number for the 2007 Lord of the Rings Calendar is
What about the Samsung SpinPoint 200 GB internal hard drive? EAN13 - 8808979495238
, just in case you were wondering. Thanks to Barcodepedia, the internet finally has a place to keep all those pesky barcodes. Because, you know, that used to be such a problem. Who in the name of God are these people uploading barcodes to this website?! User Ian13
is their #1 contributor with a whopping 340 barcodes added (Biography: "I am a barcode fanatic. Just the site for me!"). DJLarZ
is tied for 2nd place with 273 barcodes under his belt (Biography: "I work in a gas-station, so I have access to a lot of barcodes."). These are clearly sad and damaged individuals, but thanks to their hard work and dedication, if I'm holding a product with a barcode on it, I don't have to spend a bunch of time reading the packaging to try and figure out what it is. Instead, I can just boot up my computer, point my web browser to Barcodepedia.com and type the barcode into the search box! What convenience! Take this weird glass container full of cold, carbonated liquid I'm drinking, for instance. Rather than look at the label on the front of it that clearly says it's a bottle of Sapporo, I can simply type in "0 8797500350 2" and find out that I'm drinking... umm... a Six-Seater Portable Bench (Black).
The future is now, people.
