Yes, the return of the series is 1/3 through already, but you should still catch up on it.  You can stream it on Fox.com, you should if you haven’t watched it yet. New episodes are on Monday nights, so there’s still time for you to watch the first two episodes.  In case you need some … Continued

The Great War

World War I is still going strong, this is a reminder to go watch The Great War as it unfolds for 10 minutes at a time every week.  I’m a few weeks behind so far, and honestly, I forgot alot of what happened.  I think Indy needs to post some tests… {reddit|NPR}

Puzzle Builder

Or deconstructor depending on how the video was shot.  Reddit user gunbladerq spent 2 years putting together this puzzle, only to then take it apart and reconstruct it piece by piece in a 1000 frame stop motion video.  It’s soothing, and fun to watch.  It took 2 years though because he procrastinated, not because it … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Challenger

0

30 years ago today, 7 astronauts lost their lives when the Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into it’s launch. In alternate history land, it’s much better, there is no space shuttle because there was no space race.  Space, The Moon, and all of that was conquered by the allied forces of Nazi Europe … Continued

River Cave Exploring

Photographer Ryan Deboodt took a drone into the Tham Khoun Xe Cave in Laos.  It’s the largest river cave in the world – 400 feet tall, 650 feet wide, and alittle over 4 miles long.  It’s pretty amazing.  It’s also amazing that the western world hasn’t been exploring it until recently.  First visited in the turn … Continued

NHL Players are Skilled

For serious, look at the puck handling these guys have.  You watch this video and then tell me that pro-hockey players aren’t the most skilled people in all of professional sports. Yes it takes skill to hit a ball traveling 100mph 300+ feet.  But you’re standing still and the ball is being thrown at you. … Continued

HydroForming & a Pulse Jet

0

You might remember this guy from a few weeks ago and the bunker he built.  Well in this video he introduces me to the technique of hydro-forming. I like the square pillow the best.  The cone thing was boring, and the circle burst.  The pillow though was cool.  Clean up the rough welded edges and … Continued

Star Wars Again

0

Yes I’m posting some more Star Wars stuff, deal with it.  The internet has an unhealthy obsession with Nicolas Cage.  I’ll be the first to admit, I like him.  But like all things on the internet, it’s not an entireally respectful love. I wouldn’t see this movie, but I do think it would be just … Continued

Snow Blowers

0

For those who don’t know, the East Coast of the US is under a blizzard.  And since I’m head quartered along the East Coast, I feel obligated to post about it.  I could post some photos, but these videos of industrial snow blowers are cooler.  Way cooler. Snow plows and blowers on trains are cool. … Continued

Learn about LASERs

0

LASER is an acronym, however it’s an acronym that most people don’t even know is an acronym anymore.  I think the blame for that can be on displaying LASER in text as you would any other word, lowercase.  It stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.  LASERs are very important to our digital world. … Continued
