Yosemite is Open 360

0

California is on fire. (What else is new).  However, this summer fires closed Yosemite Valley for an extended period of time.  The valley wasn’t at risk of the fire, rather the wind was pushing the smoke into the valley and causing very bad air quality.  Recently the park re-opened, reddit user cesar1894 shared this video … Continued

There is not much else to say except watch this grainy 80s era video showcasing the fastest airplane ever made.  Watch it, enjoy it, re-live the golden era. {reddit}

RollerCoaster Tycoon Calculator

It might be a secret, though it’s not anymore, I love RollerCoaster Tycoon. It’s my favorite computer game. I’ve spent countless hours playing the game, beating the scenarios, making my own crazy parks. I’ve hit the object limit in a park before and it sucks when you have a really ace park. OpenRCT2 aims to … Continued

LEGO Bridge Girder Builder

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 … Continued

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 … Continued

It’s 2018, a year has passed since our reflection on the events of SONY.  With the Mafia taking over Mexico, and the release of the millions of people from NYC, the United States was on wobbly ground in the new years.  Redistricting of the nation, and redistribution of the population caused a major upheaval of … Continued

Velcro?

As public service announcements go, this one is pretty damn good.  We all fall for it, we call things by the brand names that made them famous, were the firsts, or had the best marketing strategy.  However it’s wrong, and if you go somewhere else, people might not know what you’re talking about.  Like seriously, … Continued

The Winter Marblympics

https://youtu.be/9yUrKrDDQaM The Qualification rounds for the 2018 Winter Marblympics are on.  So far there are 2 events, Snow race and Curling.  Unlike Curling in real life, the Marblelympic version was quite boring.  Like the Summer games, this looks like it’s on track for a very fun filled series of events, and if the snow race … Continued

Crazy Difficult Time-Lapse of NYC

0

Julian Tryba has a pretty neat Time-Lapse, or layer-lapse as they call it, of New York City: I admit, that was pretty ace.  Each scene in the video has as many as 300 different layers, all being independently turned on and off to the beat of the music.  A time-lapse done well to music is … Continued
