What a joy it is to watch this video take off and know so many people are getting a good laugh from me pulling celery out of my beard. This stop motion video was built over time--lots of time--with an iPhone app called Stop Motion Studio (there are similar apps for Android). I edited it further in Adobe Premiere Pro on my PC by syncing it to music.
"Let's say you're a stunt plane pilot and your friend tells you he's afraid of flying. What do you do? Obviously, you scare the living shit out of that friend." (Language NSFW.)
Also, your friend screams like a little girl, dude.

A bit wordy, so the author must be a pretentious prick.

The Sifter recently stumbled upon an incredible collection of vintage mugshots housed by the Historic Houses Trust. Many of these intriguing photographs are also accompanied by a description of the person and the crime(s) they have committed. Also, some great links at the end to some other collections of old photos.

A spectacular Nova explosion in constellation Delphinus was discovered on August 14th and Slooh is covering it to show you this amazing event as it's happening in true color. Slooh will also be talking about (and covering) the Solar Flip that's happening tomorrow as well as a Supernova that's happening nearby in M74, too. (Note: Live feed/coverage is over, but the video is still worth a look.)

And in all seriousness, if you don't understand that texting and driving is a bad idea and don't think it's that big of a deal, you need to
turn in your license watch this. Werner Herzog creates a powerful documentary with a simple message: It Can Wait.
If you think texting and driving is a bad idea, you’ll never want to get on the road again if this car ever makes it to market.

Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled “40 maps they didn’t teach you in school,” one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they’re no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. I’ve included a link for further reading on close to every one.
Jeffrey Wright uses wacky experiments to teach children about the universe, but it is his own personal story that teaches them the true meaning of life. (NSF feels.)
One of the things about humans is that they die sometimes, and one of the things humans pay a lot of attention to is other people dying. We do a pretty good job of distracting ourselves from the whole "I'm gonna die one day" thing, but the fixation is there, underneath the surface, and one way it shows through is how riveted we are by other people's deaths.
Glenn Naylor is a Park Ranger and photography enthusiast who lives and works in Alberta, Canadialand. As a founding member of Bow Valley WildSmart, you can probably guess that he loves nature. And recently, his twin passions were able to come together to capture something pretty awesome.
This is what Wikipedia sounds like. Every edit, new user, or new page creates a different sound in real time.
This isn't a painting. It's not from a movie. It's not a strange astronomical event. This is real — what you can see when certain helicopters in Afghanistan touch down on sandy ground, raising dust, causing mysterious arcs of light to loop and dance through the air.
167 single-oscillator theremins, hidden in Russian nesting dolls and used to "sing" Beethoven's 9th.
Inspired by those great men of the salt flats, those men that in the 60s pushed the Land Speed Record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds. We decided to do what we do: build a bicycle, but this time, in the spirit of those pioneers of speed, build it to see how fast we could go…
Lee Jeffries' photo series “Homeless” is that kind of a thing you either love or hate. Done only in white and black these amazing photos are so detailed you are able to see every wrinkle of the faces you see everyday in the streets. See the stories of homeless poeple lives.

My friend has an ongoing series where he gets wasted and reviews bad movies. Here, he and guest review the greatness that is Birdemic. Like the movie, it becomes a trainwreck. Enjoy. (NSFW language.)
The lack of clean water is one of the leading causes of life-threatening conditions like diarrhea. I am completely digging the fact that these engineers tapped into a water source that was always there.

I sat across the table from the porn star James Deen, and all I could think about was that in the very near future he would be wearing nothing but my pair of Google Glass, and doing what he does best.
Sadly, even before Detroit claimed bankruptcy, the population was already turning against the beautiful city, tearing apart and burning down beautiful buildings of its heyday. Detroit is being gutted by the people. (Updated with better link.)
