Wordless 9

This image was taken with NASA’s Hubble telescope. What you see is a pair of one-half light-year long interstellar “twisters”, eerie funnels and twisted rope structures in the heart of the Lagoon Nebula which lies 5,000 light-years away in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. The bright light in the lower right corner is not the Sun, but it is a star.

Cool, huh?

The music is great and I love how the snake image intertwines with the design. Simply beautiful!

13 Crazy Websites You Might Enjoy!

The first part of the list is mainly just interesting sites while the second half is main picture only type sites. Enjoy!

1. The World's Highest Web Site- Created by German artist Jens Meiert, the self-proclaimed world's highest Web site records itself as about 11.77 miles. Measuring the height of a Web site may seem just as impossible as weighing one, but Meiert is playing with the maximum size of a site as allowed by Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers. It's best understood simply by visiting the site.

2. Circoripopolo Goes Artistique- Belgian comic duo Circoripopolo is also expanding its site's design to include your Internet browser. Click on this site and your browser will immediately shrink. You'll first see two pairs of hands squeezing out of a small crack in the otherwise black screen. The duo keeps pushing outward until they've successfully expanded your browser. Later, when they explode their large balloon, your browser shakes.

3. The Human Brain Cloud- Created by Kyle Gabler, the Human Brain Cloud is a giant word-association game that compiles the words most commonly associated with each other. "Selfish," for example, is strongly connected to "me." "Reporter" has a stronger association with "yuck" than journalists would prefer. The more common the association, the larger the bubble graphically representing each word. A similar effect is found at Genealogy of Influence. This site links writers, artists, philosophers, scientists and mathematicians through their influences. Click on Ralph Waldo Emerson, for example, and watch a sea of names populate around him, from Coleridge to Shakespeare.

4. Lite Brite- This is just simply an online version of the classic Hasbro game Lite Brite. It only glows in the dark, though, if you consider your computer screen as "glowing."

5. Human-Powered Cursor- There are a number of flash programs that follow your cursor around the screen - like, for example, this dog: this dog. But the human-powered cursor by Recruit Media Communications is special. Ten Asian men carry a giant cursor, moving in formation wherever you move your cursor. It looks exhausting.

6. LoveHateNYC- Multimedia artist Rachel Fujita here presents what she calls "a personal love-hate relationship with New York City." With graphics detailing the various neighborhoods of Manhattan, Fujita mimics the multitude of contradictory thoughts and exclamations experienced in the city. Midtown, for example, is mapped in various tones of red, the darker shades representing hateful thoughts, and the lighter shades love. A number of constantly changing sentences play across the screen. One in the dark red section cycles through: "I can't breath!" ... "More sensory overload?" ... "Broadway is overrated!" ... "This is weird."

7. Passive Aggressive Notes- Just what it says…..

8. Noah K. Everyday- Noah took a picture of himself everyday for a year and uploaded it for all to see.

9 Cheese on Tour- Cheese and “Oh the places we will go” merged.

10. The Jump Project- Guess what people are doing at this site…..

11. Running From the Camera-constant pictures of someone’s backside and interesting backgrounds of Amsterdam

12. The Empty Chair League- a Flickr Group that shares pictures of empty chairs

13. The Colorfields Group- also a Flickr Group that shares various and interesting colorfields.

Poor, Poor Miss Teen South Carolina

You have to feel sorry for her, but I mean really........

This is one young lady who doesn't have it together academically. The emcee states, "The interview is the make it or break it part of the contest." Hmmmmmm....can you believe she still came in fourth place?

Sure, one-fifth of the American population can't find the U.S. on a map because......they don't have maps!

In case you think she was just nervous check out her interview on the Miss US Teen website here. Of all the people in the world, living or dead, and she comes up with Lauren Hutton? And she's a star student...not in Algebra, not in Geography....she's a star student in Photoshop! Not much there other than responses that point to fluff and I'm going to use my looks for the rest of my life.

You may wonder where she came up with the words "Iraq", "South Africa", and "help the children"......These are code words the contestants are told will help them obtain a higher score with their answers. She should at least get a high score for including all of them even though her answer makes no sense.

Many people are using this video to comment on the state of public education....I'd rather discuss how this shows how low we have stooped culturally when a young lady such as this and those around her believe all you need is great looks to get ahead.

I'm sad for her. I hope this is a wake up call to the adults surrounding this beauty, and it should be a lesson to many of our young ladies out there.

In Case You Missed the Perseids....

From Wikipedia:

The Perseids are a prolific meteor shower[1] associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so called because the point they appear to come from, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. Meteor showers occur when Earth moves through a meteor stream. The stream in this case is called the Perseid cloud and it stretches along the orbit of the Comet Swift-Tuttle. The cloud consists of particles ejected by the comet as it passed by the Sun. Most of the dust in the cloud today is approximately a thousand years old. However, there is also a relatively young filament of dust in the stream that boiled off the comet in 1862. The approximate rate of meteors originating from this filament is much higher than normal.
The have been seen for over 2000 years.

One of Europe's largest balloon festivals was set for lift-off yesterday, with nearly half a million enthusiasts gathering to watch hundreds of balloons take to the skies -- weather permitting.

The annual Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place at the Ashton Court Estate until Sunday and is expected to attract between 400,000 and 500,000 visitors over the course of the four days.

Traditional highlights include the dawn and dusk mass balloon ascents, where over one hundred balloons of different shapes, sizes and colours will glide through the skies.

The Cast of Frasier Meets Star Trek

A New Version of the Periodic Table

Well, it doesn't look like the Periodic Table in my Physical Science class.

The caption with this image states: an alternate and updated periodic table, adapted from tables developed by Thomas Bayley, Jorgen Thompsen, and Niels Bohr. These lables depict symmetrical nature of the periodic law regarding the increase in intervals before periodicity occurs in every other period with the exception of the first one. Tie lines denote chemical analogies.

Huh? I’m glad these guys know what they are talking about.
