Wine Cooled PC

0

You can file this under the folder of “why?”, but someone decided to make a liquid cooled PC, which instead of using water, or coolant, they used wine.  Yes, they now can serve warm mulled wine to guests 60°C in a few hours.  I don’t drink Mulled Wine, but according to them, that’s the perfect … Continued

I just thought that you should know that.  Yes it’s not that scientific of a test, and yes all the theoretical math and science should answer the question for you, but I thought you should know for yourself by watching this six minute video.  Don’t say I never did anything for you.

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

LEGO Engineering + Science

It’s always fun watching people push LEGO to the limits.  Here you can get a crash course in gear reduction and how to generate torque.  It’s interesting to see the differences in weights that can be lifted.  And it soon becomes apparent that the limitations aren’t in the gearing, or the motor, it’s the other … Continued

You can watch this 1 hour video on the research that proposes there are/were living things in ancient Martian lakes.  I watched/listened to some of it.  It’s interesting, but I don’t have the time to dedicate to it’s entirety.  Unlike some of the scientific videos, this one is interesting, and the presenters know how to … Continued

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. Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling … Continued

These short YouTube videos make it very easy to learn things.  You might not get a quality education.  And you might get more of a cliff’s notes version, but you learn things.  And if it’s interesting for you, you can use it to learn more about things in general. Such is the case surrounding trying … Continued

The Aztec’s Were Crazy

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

That was pretty neat.  Apparently, it took him 3 months to make that.  I can see why.  All the resetting, and rejiggering and accidentally bumping things.  It’s madness, but also pretty ace.

Train vs. Tornado (Tornado wins)

The captions on this video explain everything, but because I want to fill up space and not seem like I’m wasting time, here’s the meat.  A Freight train traveling through the state of Illinois “accidentally” crossed paths with a F2 tornado.  I get that trains, especially freight trains, are very difficult to stop.  Though the weather … Continued
