The Winter Marblympics

0

The Qualification rounds for the 2018 Winter Marblympics are on.  So far there are 2 events, Snow race and Curling.  Unlike Curling in real life, the Marblelympic version was quite boring.  Like the Summer games, this looks like it’s on track for a very fun filled series of events, and if the snow race was … Continued

Crazy Difficult Time-Lapse of NYC

0

Julian Tryba has a pretty neat Time-Lapse, or layer-lapse as they call it, of New York City: I admit, that was pretty ace.  Each scene in the video has as many as 300 different layers, all being independently turned on and off to the beat of the music.  A time-lapse done well to music is … Continued

The 2017 MarbleLympics

0

I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … Continued

Trick Pool Shot

0

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

Alternate History Thursday:- Falling Skies

Please don’t watch that terrible TNT show.  Instead, read the rest of this story and be amazed at the actual history that you missed out by being born in this reality, and not the alternate one that I’m about to describe. We still don’t know where the millions of people who inhabited NYC daily went.  … Continued

This is a pretty neat diorama of a mix of LEGO scenes from the sequel trilogy.  What you can’t see from the photo is the moving ships that go around the perimeter.  Reddit video doesn’t let me embed it for some reason, so you’ll have to venture over there. {reddit}

New York City – By Drone

0

I know this video is almost 3 years old, but sometimes it’s nice to revisit some old things, and show how times have changed, and technology improved.  In this case, the video quality is still amazing, as is the production quality.  You know what has changed, the ability to do something like this and not … Continued

The Gustav Gun

0

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  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

Alternate History Thursday: Carriers

0

The President was having nothing of what the city of New York was doing.  With their intent to secede, it was clear that a state of war was about to exist.  However, these were still Americans there, and he didn’t want them all to be punished for the crimes of a select few crazies.  As … Continued

Some of the Eclipse

0

Here’s some 360° video of this Monday’s total Solar Eclipse.  Witnessing this event in person was amazing.  We drove 16 hours down to Greenville South Carolina only to be stuck in clouds. Not to worry though, because that was a major fear of ours, we were prepared and rushed in the opposite direction of the … Continued
