Dr. Lunch

Found this site in the comments of the digg entry for the Random Restaurant Selector. It is called DrLunch.com and it is used to select lunch based upon a group's preferences.

"When the time comes to pick a location for lunch each day, rather than the usual arguments and anguish, you simply log into Dr.Lunch, pick which people are going, and our patent pending "suggestion engine technology" will choose the ideal restaurant (for that day and those users) from the list your group has built. No more asking "where should we go for lunch?" no more cries of "what should we eat today?" just unadulterated gustatory bliss."

I'm sorry, could you repeat that?

"Most humans are born with the ability to hear frequencies from about 20 Hz (low) up to 20,000 Hz (high) but that range shrinks as we get older. A guy in England figured that meant kids can hear things adults can't - specifically, very high frequencies. He created a device that pulses an annoying tone at about 15,000 Hz with the idea that when the device is used, it will repel kids while being unnoticed by adult. Perfect for solving that youth-loitering problem you've been having in front of your shop."
