Blow Your Mind 6 Seconds At A Time

The GE 6 Second Science Fair on Vine was pretty cool it seems...

A few of these I've done before in some form or another, or at least know what is going and on and why.  But not all of them to be sure.  I'm gonna go try that one with the ice cube and the water on the upside down coffee cup now...

Check Your Head - The NFL & Concussions

That the NFL has a problem with head injuries and that the league has been at least down playing the issue and at worst denying or even covering it up shouldn't be news to anyone at this point.  Just how big of a problem it is and just how long the league and probably even the fans should have know something was wrong is still being investigated.  This fall Frontline is stepping up with a two part special on the issue...

ESPN was originally involved in the project until they reportedly pulled out under pressure from the NFL.  That's not a good way for the NFL to be doing business.  Football may not, and probably should not, be the same game for much longer.

Interesting Viewpoints

Here are a couple of very engrossing videos to kill off some of your time and absorb a bit of your attention (and possibly distract you from the continued stagnation and meltdown of our political system.) (Me? Jaded? Why do you ask?)

NASA has been taking a lot of photos of Saturn with the Cassini Orbiter over the past couple of years and now you can look at them in video format.

Around Saturn from fabio di donato on Vimeo.

Closer to home this quad-copter mini-drone footage offers a pretty wild perspective on Niagra Falls.

Pretty good distractions I think.
