Hot Shot Ain’t Cool.

Thought I’d share, not as much for the comment, but for the video.

Bigass Shiny WTF

Wednesday, 9 January 2019

Caption (from source) :៧. សួតសេះដែលសប់ខ្យល់ពេញ
Google Translate detected Khmer: 7. suot seh del sabkhyal penh

In English: “7. The pneumonia is full of rain.”

Based on the translation, I’m guessing that those are a pair of whale lungs that are full of water… but I’m wrong. According to the Daily Mail, they’re a pair of fully inflated horse lungs.

Next question: Are they wet and shiny, or are they dry and marked with chalk?

Dance hard.

Please explain this.

Jumping off a mountain.

Darwin Beer Can Regatta.

Pat Sajak got a phone call.

Super Blood Wolf Moon is gonna happen.

Mike Wallace(?) interviewed an autistic man in 1961 (possibly on Wallace’ late night show “PM East“) and badgered the hell out of him for no good reason.

Not sure if you’re left-handed, right-handed or a mix of both? Take this survey. (I’m in the 2d left decile whatever that means.)

We’ll find out what Ultima Thule looks like in about 2 years. (That’s how long the signal will take to reach Earth.)

Saturday Matinee – Doodling In Math Class, Forklift Finesse, Vegetable Music, Funk Mashup & Lillian Reyes

Saturday, 5 January 2019

That’s amazing. A cardioid is an anti-parabola. I never thought of it that way.
I used to do similar doodles, but nothing like hers. Draw a square, divide each line with dots, draw curvy lines top to bottom and right to left, then connect the diagonals and the result is a 2 dimensional wavy cloth. Or you can do dog-chase doodles to do spirals, but those need graphics to explain.

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with a Zippo [via].

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with meat [via].

Amazing. Now I gotta get up offa that thang.

Amazing R&B vocals featuring Lillian Reyes. I love this stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more really important stuff.

Bonus – Old guys singing in a men’s room with great acoustics.

Freddy Heineken’s Contribution To The World: Beer Bottle Masonry

Thursday, 3 January 2019

 

…The idea of turning waste into useful products came to life brilliantly in 1963 with the Heineken WOBO (world bottle). Envisioned by beer brewer Alfred Heineken and designed by Dutch architect John Habraken, the “brick that holds beer” was ahead of its ecodesign time, letting beer lovers and builders alike drink and design all in one sitting.

This is masonry. Each course is restrained by the male/female neck/punt connection, but the glass frogs (the bumps on the tops and bottom sides of the bottle) don’t provide a lot of friction, so some method of vertical reinforcement is required. Can’t tell how they anchored it to the foundation, or how they attached the roof framing.

I suppose it works in regions with few earthquakes, no serious windloads, and for people who really like green beer bottle natural lighting.
