Oblique Strategies is a handy little utility meant for creative types. It spits out a random oblique strategy from one of the hundred included in the Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt third edition (the 1979 edition). These little anecdotes are meant to assist you when you're having a tough time with the creative process. The original card set describes them as "Over one hundred worthwhile dilemmas".

Special thanks to Brian Eno, Peter Schmidt and Gregory Taylor. Gregory Taylor's website is a great resource on Eno and Schmidt's Oblique Strategies, and I could not have built this application
