  • Scientists Catch Pregnant Shark, Give It A Sonogram

    Scientists Catch Pregnant Shark, Give It A Sonogram
    shark-sonogram.jpg This is a video from the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and The University Of New England of researchers capturing a 12.5-foot tiger shark and giving it a sonogram. The sonogram reveals that the mother-to-be has almost 20 baby sharks inside, already toothy and ready to start devastating local fish families. 'They ate my parents! Maybe. I can't remember.' -- Dorie. The screenshot above shows the sonogram with outlines and color added to make the sharks easier to see, that's not what the sonogram actually looks like. Disappointing, I know, but that's life -- disappointment is all around. You think somebody is cool and then you see them only leave a $4 tip on a $76 bar tab. How could you, Brian? I guess I thought we were more similar than we are. Keep going for the video while I delete some numbers out of my phone.
  • Awww: First Grade Teacher Lets Students Draw On Her Dress For Last Day Of School

    Awww: First Grade Teacher Lets Students Draw On Her Dress For Last Day Of School
    first-grade-dress-1.jpg This is the dress first grade teacher Chris-ShaRee Castlebury let her students draw on for the last day of school (presumably not while being worn). Chris-ShaRee teaches at Pat Henry Elementary in Lawton, Oklahoma and thought the dress would be a nice creative exercise for the kids, as well as provide her with a beautiful keepsake to remember her students by. How sweet. I still remember my first grade teacher: Mrs. Eberly. She was so wonderful. So was my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Dickerson. And my second and third grade teachers, Mrs. Hindman and Mrs. Cox. I have such fond memories of them all. My God, if they only knew how I turned out. Keep going for several more shots.
  • Outerspace!: Rihanna's Music Video For The Official Song Of The New Star Trek Movie

    Outerspace!: Rihanna's Music Video For The Official Song Of The New Star Trek Movie
    rihanna-star-trek.jpg This is Rihanna's trippy music video for Sledgehammer (not to be confused with Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer, which is way trippier by at least 100X), the official song of the new Star Trek movie, Star Trek: Space And Stuff. It was the first music video shot entirely in IMAX. I bet it looks pretty good in IMAX, but it did not look that great on my netbook at 240p. It was just like, 12 big colorful squares. Highlights: outerspace, Rihanna dressed up like an alien, little spaceships, and the Starship Enterprise scene at the very end. My favorite part by far though was when the song was over. Keep going for somebody's artistic vision.
  • Trippy Omni-Directional Wheels Can Move Car In Any Direction

    Trippy Omni-Directional Wheels Can Move Car In Any Direction
    omni-directional-wheels.gif This is a video demonstration of the Liddiard Omni-Directional Wheels designed and built by William Liddiard. They can move a car in any direction except up or down because, and I don't know if you could tell or not, but this isn't a hovercar, it's a Toyota Echo. In William's words while I fix a flat on my own car because that curb came out of nowhere I swear:
    Unlike other omni capable wheels, my wheels do not require the vehicle to be built around them. This is a world first bolt-on application for anything with wheels. Designed to be used in all weather and road conditions. They are stronger, faster, and more accurately controlled than prior wheels. They can take a beating. The tires can have the same build characteristics (siping, grooves, rubber compounds etc.) as regular tires. Now you can drive in all directions, and turn on the spot, when needed. These are proof of concept prototypes to show that they work. Finished wheels will be refined to target application requirements. Setup on this car has an incredible 24,000 pounds of torque directly on the tires! No CGI here (I did not want the tires to move too fast at road speeds so I used a high gear ratio. I now know I should have used a lower ratio). Fast speeds are definitely possible. Now ANYTHING with wheels can be omni capable (not just cars).
    Impressive. I want a set of these on my car so I can turn my car around in my driveway so I don't have to back out into traffic. That's dangerous. People honk at me. And not a friendly toot toot either, a real lay on the horn honk and usually the finger and few choice derogatory words. I usually yell back at them about their mom or girlfriend which makes it extra scary because now all these people know where I live. Keep going for the video.
  • All The Rage In Japan: Vacuuming Harmonicas

    All The Rage In Japan: Vacuuming Harmonicas
    vacuuming-harmonicas.jpg Because Japan will never stop being Japan, the people of the world's weirdest nation are recording themselves vacuuming harmonicas. Does everybody in Japan own a harmonica? Beats me. You know what else beats me? The bridge troll that lives between my cave and the nearest village. It's either pay him two fish or take a beating, and I always choose the beating because I can't fish for shit. I can catch frogs like nobody's business, but he doesn't want frogs, he wants fish. One time I found a dead fish washed up on the riverbank and I gave him that and he let me pass with just a dirty look. Usually I get a beating though. One day I'm going to blow up that bridge and crush his f***ing skull. Keep going for the video that started it all as well as the Billy Joel Piano Man remix because this is the internet where amazing things happen.

    I-1 Analog Instant Camera ? Take Your Indie Hipster Cred to a Whole New Level
    We generally tend to use whatever camera is available at the cheapest price for the best quality. Those who can afford to get the higher ticket items that have better lenses and features usually get things that are for specific projects that are more technologically advanced. There are those who appreciate vintage machinery though, making art by polishing up old relics that produce as beautiful of an end result as the ...

    Laser Guided Parking Attendant should avoid unwanted scratches and knocks
    Let?s face the cold, hard truth here – not everyone is born with the ability to park a vehicle nicely in the garage or parking lot at the first go. Some of us are great at parallel parking, while others shun away from any parking lots that do not have empty bays beside our lot. Heck, even backing into the garage might prove to be a nightmare for many, which ...

    The Xikar Windproof Lighter will burn brightly on the windiest mountain top
    You find yourself trekking to the great outdoors, where bugs, weather, and grass that is just tall enough to touch your ankle can affect you. Let’s just hypothesize, for fun, that you are in need of a small flame to deal with a task that calls for fire, such as a loose thread, campfire, or lighting up a smoke. Should the winds ever be against you, a normal lighter is ...
