this is hilarious. especially if you take the show as seriously as i do.
I tweeted some time ago that I tried desperately to purchase Game of Thrones, but couldn't find a single way to do it without buying cable and paying up the wazoo for HBO. I wound up... um... watching it some other way.
And it turns out theoa
Some really neato staircases.
This video of a miniature wunderland is absolutely incredible. Neil Young, you may have a run for your money!
I'm sure this article is a bit over the top, but even if you take it with a grain of salt it's horrifying. We all know these things happen in our food industry, so why does no one talk about it? Why are we only talking about Banks being evil, or electronics companies exploiting Chinese factories (and paying them well above local minimum wage)?
The EPA requires that emitters of lots of green house gases publish data about their pollutants, and they publish it here. This website is horrible, but the data is pretty unreal.
The great Houston area has some of the most pollutant plants in the US.
This website is a collection of street art. Some of this stuff is really awesome.
I thought benji would like this one:
I've always assumed that cities like LA and Houston are horribly sprawled because they were, in one way or another, designed around the automobile. This parking expert believes it's not the car that caused this concrete paradise, but the parking lots.
Also, did you know that parking lots really came from Oklahoma City? And they make loads
This is the most amazing thing I have EVER seen.
We finally got the wedding photos! Be sure to check them out. Lots of good ones. Sooner or later I'll get the full res copies, and I have permission to put them on my site. I'll throw some kind of site together, or use the one I made for petercompernolle.com/photos
As of now, the first three parts of a four part series are available for viewing. The series takes a look at how everything is really a copy of something that came before it, using three basic functions: copy, transform, and combine.
There are some pretty interesting examples of what "revolutionary" ideas are really just from something that came
My boss is in Florida right now for the launch of the last space shuttle. Apparently they only had two thousand or so tickets, so their servers were bonked when they went on sale. He was lucky to have gotten six, the limit.
These are some interesting photos that remind me a lot of Apollo 13, excep
And infographic, similar to lastgraph, that shows genres of films and their popularity over the years. What they don't have is a category for comic-books-because-no-one-has-any-creativity-anymore.
"On the recommendation of Amazon.com, a Shia LaBeouf impostor orders a mysterious device that creates the ultimate cinematic experience."

Pour yourself a drink and read this one!
More on my feelings about caffeine as a drug, here's a great video about coffee.
This is a topic I think about all the time, really. Caffeine is such a powerful drug.
Makes me remember why I wanted to be an astrophysicist. This is beautiful.
I'm surprised how wobbly the moon is. I always imagine it as being stable as a rock.
This is really neat! A video from 1947 about how books are made. Wow!
Simple neat little flash-based music maker.
This is hilairous and well worth watching. Lots of famous (good looking) people too!
This is mesmerizing. Must watch.
I had no idea! Everything I do is right-handed: writing, baseball, computer mousing, that other thing. Everything!
So imagine my surprise when I took this test and found out I'm actually left eye dominant! How interesting! I have no idea what that really means, unless I'm interested in buying a bow. But still! Learn something new every day
This is hilarious. A blog of people who take articles from the Onion seriously.
I thought it would be interesting, and hopefully entertaining, to do a more personalized look at the subjects in some of these well know photographs. The unfamiliar names below will have one thing in common: because of a split second in time with a camera pointing towards, them they will always be remembered as "the person in that phot
This is pretty funny. Worth checking out just for the illustrations of typical San Franciscans.
Living in San Francisco means never leaving the house without wearing layers. Having just one wardrobe. Owning lots of hoodies. Owning lots of scarves. Owning lots of hoodies and scarves for your dog. It means having pale legs that get sunbu
