Alternate History Thursday: 42nd Street

0

While 42nd Street doesn’t exactly cut Manhattan in half, it was the proverbial divide of the city.  Those in the north who were closer to the mainland were convinced that the government’s story was correct, there was nothing to fear, this was only a temporary glitch on the way towards a better world tomorrow.  As you … Continued

Shoelaces

Who would have thought that tying your shoes would be this interesting to watch, or more importantly, that there would be a different way to do it instead of the same way I’ve been doing it for 30ish years.

DIY 3D LED POV

0

Is that enough acronyms in the title?  No, I think I can get a few more, don’t you?  I find the rotating LED signs interesting, though useless.  I can’t think of a reason to make one, and as such, I don’t really want to spend too much of my already valuable time making one.  I … Continued

This is one of my favorite photos from my most recent National Parks Trip – Joshua Tree NP.  I also really do like this night shot: That’s really all I have to say, Happy Birthday to me. What say you?

Compressed Water Rocket

Often called a Pop bottle rocket, or something similar.  This is something else entirely.  This is a true multi-stage rocket powered by water and air that reaches up to 800 feet in altitude.  I particularly like the Red, White, and Blue “exhaust” I remember spending Saturday afternoons with the car compressor and a cork launching … Continued
