Alternate History Thursday – The Invasion

0

It started out slowly (like everything that drastically changes the world does), they was marketed as a toy.  Except it wasn’t just any toy, it was one that those children who were effected by the subtle chemicals baked into them were attached for life.  It was an addiction for them, always having to get more. … Continued

Alternate History Thursday – Back to The Future

28 years ago today the Delorean traveled through time. Today we are a mere 2 years away from the future predicted by Marty McFly in Back to The Future Part II. Each passing year we get closer to the time when we can buy hover boards, and jackets that auto adjust to our size.  Too bad … Continued

LEGO RCT

I’d venture to guess that this is RCT2, based on my extensive knowledge of the subject. RollerCoaster Tycoon is one of my all time favorite video games.  Up there with Tetris, it’s timeless. I also love LEGOS. Somehow, it never dawned on me to join the two together, but they go perfectly together.  They both … Continued

In case you haven’t heard, the price of a single share of stock in Google has broken $1,000.  It actually happened on Friday, but I wanted to wait it out the weekend and make sure it wasn’t a fluke thing.  Such a big difference then what it was a few years ago, as a company … Continued

The Cookie Clicker

It’s embarrassing how much time I’ve spent playing this game.  It’s not even a game, you can just let it run in the background on a not used tab and you still accumulate cookies.  But I feel watching, and clicking is so much more fun. Also, probably the best thing about the whole game.  If … Continued

You want some art to hang on your walls right.  Something classy, but unique.  Well, take a look at the works of Chris McMahon, and Thryza Segal.  They take thrift shop art, and spice it up a bit. This one is my favorite, it’s like a storyboard for a monster movie out in the country. … Continued

Watch the nearly decade long saga of the construction of One World Trade Center.  Hopefully it will open soon and people will be able to go up it. {PetaPixel}

It’s wine making season, and so let’s take a look at how barrels are made.  It’s a fascinating process that totally keeps your interest for the 22 and a half minutes of the video.  It looks like it takes along time, but I bet most of this process was slowed down for shooting the video. … Continued

The Badlands

  I made it back from South Dakota, and just in time too.  Had I decided to plan my trip for the next week, I’d have been out of luck due to the government shutdown.  Well, not totally out of luck, but just mostly.  I wouldn’t have gotten my stamps, or any post cards, and … Continued

  Ordinarily, something like this would make it into the next STUMBLES post, except who knows when that will be, and if the Government shutdown will still be around by then.  So instead I’ve decided to give it it’s own post.  Yay NOAA. If you want to see if for yourself, check out the actual … Continued
