Usually there’s a special date associated with an Alternate History post, but not this time.  No, this time it’s a straight up history dump of the greatest things you never knew happened because you’re not privy to that reality.  This will mostly be a bullet pointed list of things that I’ve uncovered over the years … Continued

7,000 FPS Lightning

0

I’ll never get tired of watching storm video.  Especially storm video that’s in super slow motion of 7,000 frames per second.  The above video was captured last week during a storm in Melbourne Florida by Professor Ningyu Liu at the Florida Institute of Technology’s Geospace Physics Laboratory.  The video above is sped up to 700 frames … Continued

LEGO Matrix Lobby Shootout

0

The Lobby Shootout is the best scene from the original Matrix.  It showcases bullet time excellently.  The only thing it doesn’t do is show Agents.  But that’s alright, you don’t need to know anything about Agents to know that this LEGO recreation of the scene is awesomely well done.  I can’t imagine how long it … Continued

Coke Shotglass

If you ever wanted an edible shotglass made of coke, this video is for you: Honestly, the rubberness of it looks weird to me.  I would prefer if it were frozen.  It would probably feel better while you drink from it.  The glass wouldn’t last long, but that’s the idea I bet.  How would warm … Continued

Star Wars Episode V: James Bond Style

No promise that this video will still work when you watch it, it took me awhile to find one that had audio, stupid automated copyright bots.  Reddit user krofl created this mashup of the James Bond type title sequence for Star Wars Episode V. for his thesis.  The title sequence is full of James Bond … Continued

Up-cycled Mirror

Paweł Budziar took some parts from an engine of an old car and used his welding and blacksmithing skills to make this one of a kind up-cycled mirror for his girlfriend’s birthday.  I really like the uniqueness of it, At first I thought the stand part of twisted metal rod didn’t belong.  Maybe he should have … Continued
