When I was a kid I loved launching model rockets. I spent many hours building them from kits, and wrapping paper tubes, and newspaper, and one even from a cardboard tube that a rug was in. That was a fun one, we put an “F” type engine in it, there was so much black smoke … Continued
Complete in full 360° glory! Some crazy Russians (might not actually be Russians, but rather great Capitalists!) have attached a Samsung Gear 360 camera to the tail of a MiG as it flew into the stratosphere at speeds approaching Mach 2. I will say, traveling at supersonic speeds is one of my all time dreams, … Continued
In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is. This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada. It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued
I may have posted about Naked Jakey before, or I may not have. I’m too bothered to look up my usual post history. I found him with his Halo Changed Everything video series. In the above, he goes over the under appreciated world of Video Game title screens. Seriously, how often do you pay attention … Continued

A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1. Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued
Imgur user xadrian built his own LEGO Food Truck. I gotta say, the thing looks ace. There’s plenty of attention to detail on the inside. And actual flames on the side, not a baby decal. Actual. Flames. Doesn’t this guy look dangerous?
The most impressive part of this marble run is the fact that much of it is carved out of food. Look at the organic shapes made. It must have taken the guy ages to get all that detail in it. It doesn’t hurt that marble runs are just fun to watch.
This is an interesting update to the classic video The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. However, it’s filled with recent additions to the super-hero landscape. Sure there are some classics: The T-800, Indy, Luke, but all newer takes on the famous heroes/villains of modern times. Plus, there’s no catchy music playing in the background. Maybe … Continued
I’m going to try something different this year for my long running Alternate History Thursday series. Instead of whatever story gets beamed into my mind while I sleep the night before, I will spend the entire year focused on one story. Yes, I tried it in the past, and I sometimes went back to that … Continued
