The More Things Change...

The more our celebrities look the same?  I could not have told you that these mashup / photo collage images would have worked so well, but they do.

George Chamoun has made a bunch of images like this one:

And Marc Ghali has taken the ball and run with it as well:

Check out the other images they've made in the links above, they're worth scrolling through.

Watch Hockey From The Ice

This is a pretty great 10 minute snippet from an AHL game earlier this fall with the Ref  wearing a helmet cam and microphone.  The perspective is really interesting and it's a good remind of just how good on skates the refs need to be...

I think my favorite parts are actually the conversations that he has with players on their way to the box.  I wasn't expecting the coaching / teaching aspect and role that the Ref takes and it's really nice to see that part of things.

Get Covered Y'all

So this is pretty great...

For real though, get yourself insured.

Bend Spandex Space Time To Your Will

Or at least set up a cool demo of general relativity...

I wish my high school science teachers had shown us that. The Earth - Moon system demo with the different sized marbles is particularly neat, especially when the teacher points out that some of his students discovered it while playing around with the setup...

Pedal Power

I'd heard about the Copenhagen Wheel and it sounded cool; put a little battery and some regenerative breaking in a little case and give bikers some well deserved assistance when needed.  All while looking cool and staying out of the way.

The promo video for the wheel though, well now it's real...

Get on your bike and ride!

More on the project, and sales, at the Super Pedestrian website.

At The Museum

It was a good day to be a visitor at the Air & Space Museum today; the USAF Band made an appearance...

This has been making the rounds in the DC corner of the interwebs and it's just a really cool little thing...
