Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down. I didn’t know it was founded in 2002. I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think. I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows. Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling … Continued
How could we go all year without the reminder of this classic? I didn’t think so, did you?
Technically, this was Snooker, not that it really matters that much, this was an incredible shot. I think I’m equally impressed with the amount of room that this pool hall has. I lost count of the number of tables visible, but it seemed like quite a set up. Another thing that always amazes me is … Continued

If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years. The above shows Hitler and some generals … Continued

You know the words. If that’s not your thing, then take a gander at this trailer for the documentary of the events from 28 years ago.
James McNabb is a furniture maker, he uses a bandsaw to make these intricate city skylines out of discarded, and unusable scraps of wood. I really like the above table.
