Randall Munroe

Believe it or not, this guy is my hero (for the day at least).
Though only a tender 22 year old, he has managed to work for NASA as a roboticist (and robots are freakin' cool), stop working for NASA, and is now supporting himself solely off of his cartoon blog xkcd (which I mentioned earlier this month).
He has also created bestthing - a project trying to determine the absolute best thing. It has gotten pretty good - at number 1 is:
Finding out that you can fly, and just never knew it
I salute you Randall!

Edit: Interview with Randall at Redhat.

How It's Made

Have you ever wondered how certain things are made? Look no further! We have collected a bunch of how-its-made videos from around the web.

Here you can have a look at the process beer, gum, cereal and many more familiar items go through before reaching the consumer.

Mosomedve Artwork

These seem so familiar, but I was too lazy to go googling where I've seen them before.

How to Good-Bye Depression

I know we've all asked ourselves that at least once...
Hiroyuki Nishigaki has the answer.

Trapped Browsing

I get stuck in my desktop all the time. Really.

Kinky - Sister Twisted

I enjoy pop locking, especially when it sneaks up on me all unexpected.

Alternate YouTube link.

10000 Pounds

Oh! I get it. It's a commercial.

Thursday, October 19, 2006


Parodies on the whole 'picture every day for the past X years...' theme are plentiful. This one is well made.



A nice little puzzle game that will supply you with a few hours of thinking. Or possibly an aneurism.

David Blaine - YouTube Edition

I love the Zoolander look. God help me, I do.


I present you with the new Sony Bravia ad.
Not as exciting as the last, but colourful without a doubt.

WoW - View from the top

Diary of an ex addict.

Sky City. In the fog at least.

They also have the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East!


With Halloween just around the corner (which, incidentally, is also my birthday cough cough...) you'd better start brushing up on your carving skills.

My Name is Earl

Just a reminder - has lots of new shows on - enough to waste me a lifetime...
My Name is Earl is now on there, and is well worth a watch.



A 60 second long journey from the plain girl next door to a billboard model.

The Behemoth

As somewhat of a novelty, Wenger have produced this giant-all-including Swiss Army Knife. Yields all 85 tools ever to be seen in a SAK.
How handy.

Webcomic I like.
Hit 'prev' and check out his work.

Chad and Steve Sell

Google bought YouTube for 1.65 billion dollars. These two are the smug sellers.
Even with all their money, they still can't legally marry.


This is the most badass I've ever seen anyone go on a trampoline.

Vaguely related - Tumbling.

Floating Shit

Ariel assured me this is a simple example of super conductivity, and that they do this at the institute on a regular basis.
Damn super scientists.

MIT sketching

The entire video just went past me, I was that mesmerized by the guy's moustache.


That's one stylish little game!
I'd love to hear more from the music. If anyone knows it let me know what it is.

Cosmic coloring Book

When I grow up I wanna be a NASA Visualization Artist.

South Park Vs. WoW

The South Park guys' most recent episode is about none other than World of Warcraft - the ever so popular game that has robbed gamers around the globe of millions of productive hours.
They paint a pretty accurate picture of online gaming and culture.

It could do with some Leeroy Jenkins, but it's a great episode as it is.

Incongruities in the episode are now on wikipedia...

Bruce Vs. Chuck

Bruce Lee Vs. Chuck Norris. And a Kittay!

Line Rider

With some practice you can achieve incredible results.

Hubble Picture

Behind the piece's pompous title, and after some numa numa kid, is a cool video about space - above and beyond. Might make you feel kinda small...

Video Budget

Music videos are rather expensive. This one cost 15$ - the rest of the money went to 3rd world propaganda. Makes you think.
