How Photographs were made 160 years ago

0

I find it truly amazing how things were invented.  Particularly, the science of photography.  Especially all of the chemicals and light sensitive materials used.  How was it discovered?  Who thought to use red light to work in?  It’s really quite interesting. Well, the website Tested recently had a show in San Francisco where they went … Continued

How to Build a House

0

Have you even wondered how to build a home?  What’s necessary?  How to start, what order to do things in?  Well, this may be over an hour long video, but Larry Haun does a really good job showing how he and a buddy build a house.  Or most of it anyway.  It’s really interesting and … Continued

Periodic Table of Wood

0

I have posted quite a few different periodic tables over the years.  There was the The Periodic Table of Characters, The Periodic Table of Awesoments, but my favorite is the Actual Periodic Table.  Anyway, that’s nothing compared to this new Periodic Table: Yes, it’s a periodic table of different woods.  It doesn’t look like it … Continued

Long time readers will know my obsession with America’s National Parks, (just check out the tag, seriously).  It is my goal to get to all 59 (as of this publication, November, 2015), of America’s National Parks.  I’ve got a dozen down so far, but I’ve only been seriously going to them for a few years … Continued

HyperZoom Technique

Photographer Geogg Tompkinson has come up with a really neat technique of stitching together photos taken at different zooms to create a seamless timelapse that makes it look as one long continuous shot.  The photos were taken over a 2 day period, but I’m sure the post work took far, far longer than that.  I … Continued

Instant Coffee

0

No, I cannot understand what’s being said here.  But I can understand the gist of what’s happening.  These two Norwegian guys have decided to pour dozens of bags of instant coffee into a hot water heater in a house.  (I really, really hope it’s not their hot water heater, in their house).  The idea being … Continued

Alternate History Thursday – 11/11

Today marks the independence day created during the Robotic Revolution.  On this day in 2037, the Robot Revolutionaries got together and signed the pact that would become the new humanity institution of greatness.  It’s similar to the old, United States Bill of Rights, except it includes the Bill of Robotic Lacks.  Because Robots have no … Continued
