The Snowman Slide

I’m not gonna lie, that was fucking awesome.  I want to do that the next time it snows.  Sure, it happened last year, and making my own this year, or next year, or whenever i get around to doing it will seem like a copy cat, but I don’t care, that’s too awesome not to do.  I think my favorite part might be the tunnel at the bottom, I love tunnels!  They remind me of my bunker aspirations, and ultimatily a missile silo.  Ah, good times down those memory lanes.  Anyway, check out that video, it’s awesome.

Stimble Stumble Stamble

It’s winter, and there’s snow on the ground, and its the same snow that’s been on the ground since December, it never goes away, more just keeps coming.  Well, that’s exactly like what the stumbles are.  The internet just keeps coming up with more and more awesome, amazing, funny, meme, and wrong things for me to find and gather together in a post for you all to enjoy.

Snowplow Sorrow

It’s alittle jumpy, but it’s worth it, wish there were some sound.  Apparently this happened down in Georgia, durring their big snow storm that they’re not used to, and the truck was loaded with 2 tons of gravel and it fell through the floor of the parking lot.  However, they say that the parking lot was structurally sound, and no beams broke.  Maybe he drove over a drain, or some other weak point, and it was just too much.  I don’t know, all I know is I was not expecting that.  I thought he maybe would push some cars off the edge cause he was pissed off or something.

The SnowMAN

That’s a snowman to be proud of.  Some Poles built a 31 foot tall snow giant.  Complete with a barrel for a hat, and a traffic cone for a nose.  No word on what the buttons are made of, but I bet it’s something eccentric.  That looks like half a tree for the arm too.

Man, I remember a few years ago this time of the year we had a complete slide into our dorm room window made out of snow.   It was pretty insane.  Wounder what happened to those pictures/video, I should go and fix that site.

Stumbles I lost count

Another heaping helping of wrongness courtesy of everyone’s favorite add on, Stumble Upon.  We got memes, gifs, Nazis, and more, all for your viewing pleasure, all right after the click.  Play a game of scrabble, hop on a plane to Australia, and remember, you are getting all of this information through the internet, what is yours called?

Make a Snow Arch

That’s an arch made of snow, look at the grace, and the beauty, and the leaning of it towards one side.  Seems like a work of snow art that took hours to make, only to be destroyed by nature.  Oh well, here are some instructions on how to make it.  And here are some nice photos on how it was made:

Making the base with what looks like plastic tub, nice.  We used a garbage can for our snow slide.

They used the bad bricks to hold up the arch as it was made.  Good thinking, next they should boil them down and make some coffee with them or something.  Maybe coat the arch with ice.  We did that to our slide, it lasted for ages because of it.

The final test, remove the supports and hope the arch lives.  Theirs does, yay for them.  But victory is short lived, because the heat soon makes its mark and destroys the once graceful arch.  Oh well, here’s a nice video of the arch failing completely:

Snowflake Maker

I love interactive things like this.  Just alittle click of the mouse, and I have a beautiful work of art.  This time it’s some snowflakes.

As you can see I spent some time and had fun with it.  It took me 3 tries before I got a “typical” snowflake, at least in my mind.  The 3-D rotate function is cool, I just wish it would be still on 3-D, cause that would be cooler.  Also, it’s missing a clear button, but otherwise, its a fun way to kill some time on a dull day.

Snow Castle

That is my all time favorite castle ever, and the fact that’s it made out of snow means that i love it even more. More pictures here.
