A 360° View of The F-35

0

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35: It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they … Continued

Border Differences

reddit user adamc4 has spent some time looking through Google Street View along the borders of US States.  He noticed that sometimes it’s pretty easy to tell when you’re entering a new jurisdiction without even needing the giant “Welcome” signs. Other times it’s not as apparent, except for the abrupt end new pavement, and the … Continued

Metal Profiles

Imgur user pfefferminzetea has cut out the profiles of the presidents for on each of a U.S. Nickel, Penny, and Dime.  It looks like they had to use a laser to cut it out so precise, either that, or this is a great Photoshop job.  Some people might be concerned that this is illegal because … Continued

Melting Caves

In the shadow of Mt. Hood in northern Oregon lies what is thought to be the largest Glacier Cave system in the lower 48, Sandy Glacier Caves.  Due to reasons beyond our control, the glaciers are retreating, and so the ice caves are changing.  Getting larger in places, but smaller overall.  They’re also pretty dangerous … Continued

It’s like we’re all of a sudden back in the 1950s.  Earlier this week an alleged Russian Spy ring was exposed right in my back yard! I’m not gonna go into details about this whole thing, that’s not my job, but I will say that I am excited because not only have all the Robert … Continued

Listening to The Man in the Moon

0

Not the R.E.M. song, although that is a good one.  I’m talking about the actual Apollo 11 landing.  Back in the 1960’s there was a guy who used his own home made equipment to listen in to transmissions coming from the astronauts on the surface of the moon.  CRAZY! Using an antenna that he had … Continued
