YouTube Picks #69 - Never A Year Like '09




Pick your level and do the quiz. It may help if you're American as most of the questions are USA-based trivia.


Food Art


Carvings and photography made of mostly fruit and veg but there are some done with loaves of bread as well. These are actually intended to be used as wallpaper (for your computer, not your bedroom).


Digg Spy


See Diggs in real time as they're dugg. The bigger the writing, the more they've been dug. Click through the Diggs to see the actual articles that have been dug.


Size Does Count


As seen on The Nation website in Bangkok.

"Men's instinctive concern over their penis size will soon be discussed more openly - or even boasted about - with the news that an official penis measuring device is being introduced to Thailand. About to be launched under the Public Health Ministry's "Condom for All" campaign, a disposable paper measuring tape will tell guys which size condom will give them the best comfort and protection."

Print Advertising


"Print adverts need to get a message across with a single image and without the recourse of interactivity that we find today on the Internet.

As interactive media expands, attention spans are getting shorter and shorter every day.

For any company trying to get their product or service out in print format, the task is ever more challenging and difficult."


Photos From Old Times


The camera was invented in stages by various different parties going back as far as the Greeks and Chinese in the 4th-5th Centuries B.C.

It was 1727 that Johann Heinrich Schulze discovered that silver nitrate darkened upon exposure to light.

This page features some old photos - I'm guessing that most of these are from the 19th Century or thereabouts.
