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

So Many Faucets

0

Seriously, who knew that the lonely faucet had so many new ways to operate?  If you don’t believe me, search for “faucet” on Yanko Design, (or just click that link).  At the time of this writing, there’s 13 pages worth.  Sure, some of them are stupid crazy things, but some are actually pretty neat. This … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: WAR!

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.

Sriram Murali created the above video to show the effects that light pollution has on the beautiful night sky.  In it, he focuses on the constellation Orion, and how our perception of it changes based on the light density of the area we view it from.  The entire thing is a great example of one … Continued

Cosmonaut Day

On April 12, 1961 the Soviet Union made history by sending Yuri Gagarin into space.  He was the world’s first astronaut, and he was the one who shot the United States in the arm and made us realize that we had a long way to go if we wanted to beat the commies at their … Continued

Happy Birthday Bruce

The almighty Bruce Willis was born 62 years ago today. There’s not much else to say about it.  

Logan

I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine.  He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for.  The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series.  Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, … Continued
