This is ridiculous.  Plain old ridiculous.  Apparently it’s some Red Bull event called Crashed Ice.  It is as dangerous as it looks, one of those people broke their tailbone, which is apparently excruciating.  I have no intention of ever trying this.  Watching it on the other hand, I could be for that, maybe. {reddit|YouTube}

What happens when you Breath In Noble Gas

Crazy things.  Of course you know that helium gives you chipmunk voice. The others get surprising.  I think my favorite is Xenon, “It almost feels like it’s attracted to the ground”. It should be noted that this is something you should never do as they very likely can kill you if done in excess and … Continued

I don’t know why all of a sudden this is coming up in the world, but here it is, and now it’s stuck in your head. You are not welcome

The end of an Era

Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down.  I didn’t know it was founded in 2002.  I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think.  I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows.

Once you can get past the terrible narration, you can appreciate the absolutely terrifying nature of this whistle.  It’s theorized that these whistles were used to strike fear in the enemies.  Or to send send the human brain into the next state of being. I guess when you don’t have metallurgy, or guns, or those … Continued

Did you know that in the Victorian era, elaborate cast iron fish tanks were all the rage among the nobility?  I didn’t.  I assumed fish tanks, because of the glass, plastic, electricity, and silicone necessary were a relatively recent commodity.  I would be wrong.  Tropical Fish Magazine has a detailed write up on what went … Continued
