Hydraulic Press Channel

0

I think the better thing to come out of this reddit post is the fact that there is a YouTube Channel dedicated to crushing things with a hydraulic press.  Sure, there aren’t very many videos uploaded yet, but this is a pretty neat channel.  I remember using these types of presses when I was a civil engineer. … Continued

Keyboard Snake

0

Remember Snake, the pretty simple cell phone game everyone had where you eat bits and try not to run into yourself?  Well redditor mythicmaniac decided to use his mechanical keyboard as the screen for a version of it: The game pre-dates cell-phones (at least, cell-phones with a screen and the ability to play games) by … Continued

Survival Fire Piston

0

Instructables user wartellc made his own Fire piston in about 4 hours.  I had never heard of one of these before, but the concept is pretty basic, I like it.  I don’t have any of the tools necessary to make my own, so I’ll probably just buy one, it’s only $25 on Amazon.  However, the … Continued

Pinhole DSLR

0

A pinhole camera is the most basic type of camera there is.  Light enters a tiny pinhole and then exposes a light sensitive film. The above video shows you how to make a very simple adapter for your DSLR to turn it into a pinhole camera.  It’s nice, but I’m not sure if it’s really … Continued

Green

Today is the national day of the color Green.  You may think that that’s insensitive towards a certain group of people, but as you might be able to tell, I don’t really care about that.  Celebrate your Green day today and remember, don’t talk to strangers.

Night Sky Sequoia

I’m about to share two videos with you of the majestic and beauty of Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park.  These are places I didn’t get a chance to visit because of the road closures and winterness of it.   I really like the camping one where there’s not much of a night sky view, … Continued

Hardcore Henry

I’m not sure if I posted this before, I don’t think I did.  I stumbled to the first trailer a few weeks ago and it was on my list of things to let you know about, but I forgot. Sorry.  Here’s another trailer (or it could be the same one, I have no idea) for … Continued

Round Pi

0

Today is commonly called Pi day because when us Americans write it as shorthand you get 3.14.  Last year was the once in a century where if you timed it right you got a whole bunch of digits.  This year there’s nothing to time, it’s rounded to 3.1416.  That’s close enough to all you’ll ever … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Fukushima

0

On March 11, 2011 a tsunami hit the coast of Japan.  If that’s not devastation enough, we soon learned that the nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi was majorly effected, and was in the process of a melt down.  To date it is only the 2nd nuclear event to be designated a Level 7 on the … Continued

Jake & Amir’s new Show

0

Is apparently a streaming only series that will premier on Vimeo, and it’s definitely an interesting plot.  Amir doesn’t seem too far different from his Jake & Amir version, but it looks like it’s supposed to be more true to life.  So no crazy astronaut accountants which is what their previous long show was about. I’ll … Continued
