Interesting. I like how it is set up, but it was regularly saying wrong things about me (talking about my cursor being in places it wasn't, clicking in ways I definitely didn't.) I wonder if that's because the site is buggy, or I have some kind of masking ability, or I have a virus and my computer is secretly doing things I'm not aware of.

bo-----rrrrrring. I saw the beginnings of my "Ivory medal" or whatever for one minute of my life. I'd have gonged it, if I only had a gong.

This 3-minute animation will change the way you see the universe

I don't know about all that, but, it is fairly interesting.

Powers of Ten did something similar to this back in the 70s, I think their approach was more accessible since the scale was changing by the same degree each time, rather than linking it to random objects.




There is also this black hole comparison, if you really want to feel infinitesimal. (with suitably ominous music)

Help bring a soldier home for the holidays. This guy has been doing this for a long time, and I believe it to be a very worthwhile cause. He provides plane tickets to servicemen & women around the world who can't afford them, so they can be with their families during the holidays.

Let's Bring 'Em Home is a 501c non-profit charity, so your donations are tax-deductible.

I used to donate $100 every year when he was in MA, but a couple years after he moved to FL he turned into an asshole. We had a falling out in a series of emails over one weekend, about the Iraq war.

He's definitely opinionated.

But, remember, you're not helping him...

Yes and no, helping service persons get home, but building his brand, his loyal following which means more income, and his ego.

Here in the UK, it is expected to be the busiest shopping day of the year and I suspect that the same can be said for the US and Canada.
Do you groan at the thought of being stuck in a traffic jam, fighting for a parking space or the prospect of being in a confined space with countless other people each possessed of a pair of extremely sharp elbows?
Are you run down, tired, nervous, listless and depressed or just plain pissed off on a dreary afternoon when it's dark by 1530?
Yes? Then what you need is Nukemap.

Just select the target and weapon of your choice and bring a warm glow to your heart (and everywhere else) as you survey the area of destruction and the predicted number of deaths.

Well, it must be better than trudging around Tesco or Walmart.

Nukemap.

I wonder if that default location upon opening the link is T R U M P T O W E R ?

I wonder if that choice was made thoughtfully.
