LEGO Car

0

That is a life-sized working car built out of LEGOs.  Yes, you read the correctly, life-sized, built from LEGOS.  In fact, it doesn’t even use any glue, all the pieces are being held together by the inherit force of nature that is LEGO.  Based on estimates, this cost about $1 million to make.  Which when … Continued

New Shoes

You may or may not have noticed, but the blog has some new shoes on.  A few weeks ago the server went kapoot.  I don’t know exactly what happened, I think there was a storm and surge and the server wouldn’t boot.  Either way, the server is up and running now.  I had been in … Continued

Yosemite is Open 360

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

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.

Martians

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

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

Take Care, Asshole

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.
