    I refuse to believe this is faked - not because I have proof, just because I want it to be real!

    We have something like 200-300 thousand tons of nuclear waste cluttering up the place and it's definitely not doing us any good.
    What do?

    Bury the stuff in a vast underground complex in Finland, that's what. 2 miles deep and with copious 3d renderings just like out of Resident Evil.

    @Fookwit: wait until toddlers have thought controlled hover chairs.
    And I love that 404!
    And the Wookie steak.

    @DJ Stawes: That image reminds of Forbush Man.

    @taphead: Omit Will Ferrell and Jack Black and we have ourselves an awesome teaser.

    @Glukkake: a million times no.


    This was in my Tumblr followers feed just now.

    From http://www.spinninghat.com/product/typescreen:

    Type Screen


    Tablet computing is the way of the future. But unfortunately for those cursed with normal sized fingers, these technological advancements can become burdensome lifestyle obstacles and usability nightmares. Like many, we have often wished for the convenience of a touch screen interface with the ease of a traditional typewriting keyboard.

    After 16 months of intense product design and laborious research and development we are proud to say that our wishes (and hopefully yours) have finally come true! From texting to web browsing, the new Spinning Hat Typescreenâ„¢ gives you all modern functionality of an iPad with the sleek classic feel of retro typewriters that we all miss so dearly...

    cardo: some of those are obviously shot in reverse and use string, but others look real to me as well.

    I just want to know what song that is. Catchy.

    Sorting algorithms as dances

    You may well have seen many simulations of sorting algorithms that aim to show in novel ways how the algorithm works or perhaps doesn't work quite as well as it should. However I guarantee that you have never seen anything quite in the same league as the videos made by Sapientia University - they are simply crazy but in the nicest possible way.
    Take one Central European folk dancing team, a small folk band and an added overlay showing array locations and get them to dance the algorithms in time to "appropriate" folk music. The result is slightly surreal and for a time at least slightly hypnotic.

    Charles Schulz's Peanuts comics often conceal the existential despair of their world with a closing joke at the characters' expense. With the last panel omitted, despair pervades all.
