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 put emotion into the talk.
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 across the internet. I found many a strange photo, or comic, or video. Some interesting natural? formations. The whole basis of the Going Green series of posts started from some stumbles. I had interesting conversations with people, sadly I can’t remember any of their names.
It all started with that browser add-on. You know, back in the hay-day of browser add-ons. You couldn’t open someone’s browser without 36 different things opening up, stealing all your cookies, and making life really weird. Yet back then, no one cared. I gladly stumbled all over the internet, well into the morning hours. Things slowed down when I switched to the Chrome browser. And things practically disappeared when the browser add-on turned more into an iframe. I guess SU wanted even more of our dataz. It might have been around this time that they changed their logo from the cool green SU to the strange ugly orange. I see that as the death of them.
I honestly not have known that they were shutting down had it not been for this Reddit Post.
Regardless, me and my 42k likes will live on forever. They might not be relevant, they might not even exist anymore, but good golly, they were some great times wasted away on the immature internetz.
It will never cease to amaze me with the ingenuity of people when it comes to LEGO contraptions. I’ve never seen one of these full size bridge girder movers, but watching this LEGO version makes me amazed at how humans have been able to make machines to make life easier. Especially since this machine is meant to make other amazing engineering feats easier. Tie it all up within LEGO, and it’s even more impressive.
Really, watch the video, it’s worth it.
It’s the 4th of July, Happy Birthday America. Welcome to the greatest Country in the history of the world. The world’s history is short, as
This isn’t the first time I’ve watched actual YouTube Ads as separate videos. It’s a testament to the quality of said videos that I’ll sit and watch an entire ad before some other video plays. (Un)Fortunately that was not the case this time around.
Did you know that I’ve been to Yosemite National Park? It’s up there as my top 3 favorites. Along with Gates of the Arctic, and The Grand Tetons. There’s something special about Yosemite though. It’s one of the few parks which I’ve been to more than once. And I’d love to go back there again and again, it’s that beautiful, and that special.
Anyway, enjoy the above time-lapse, it’s enjoyable, and at first glance the music was weird, but on reflection, I like it.
Really, I don’t know. I’m not sure why it exists. But you must watch it. And you must be terrified.
Back to history. Back to memories. Back to where it all started.
If it weren’t for the brave men who stormed those beaches 74 years ago, the world as we know it would not exist. I’ve detailed it before in alternate history thursday posts. I will not explain it here. Instead this post will serve as a reminder to us all. Don’t count out the bravest, ever.
It’s simply fun to watch. I don’t know what the world record is. Or why he’s using Nutella. All I do know is that it was a joy to watch a grown man have that much excitement. The video is way better then the reddit gif originally makes it out to be.
