"I just happened upon this trick when testing what it was like filming from inside my guitar. *Note this effect is due to the rolling shutter, which is non-representative of how strings actually vibrate."

Clever & Creative Tea Packaging

|
Clever tea packaging and teabag designs from all over the world. I like a brew myself but then I'm British and we all do.

Not sure I'd want to go for some of these though - normal 'breakfast' tea does me just fine..

Google Maps in 3D for your Smartphone

|
http://www.google.com/mobile/maps/3d/

If you've got an Android powered phone then get this! And it's free. Absolutely awesome - you can orient yourself on the map (which you could do before) but now the maps are in 3D which means if you're lost in a city you can make out what buildings are where and so on.

As it says - "Make a skyline come to life".

14 rare pictures of the scenes from the dying stages of World War 2

"In April 1945, as Russian and German troops fought -- savagely, street by street -- for control of the German capital, it became increasingly clear that the Allies would win the war in Europe. Not long after the two-week battle ended, 33-year-old LIFE photographer William Vandivert was on the scene, photographing Berlin's devastated landscape."

We're back!

|
Sorry for the downtime on the site folks - we're now back up and running on a new server. The blog migration was a nightmare - just goes to show you sometimes should not rely on the 'how-to' pages out there on the Web - in the end I've done it just by common sense and a lot of fudging...

Normal service will be resumed as of tomorrow - I'm heading for a kip after all that..

see ya back here soon

The Fucking Word of the Day

http://www.thefuckingwordoftheday.com/

"Improving your lexicon one fucking word at a time. Many of you reading this are already familiar with the concept of The Word of the Day. You may already subscribe to Dictionary.com or some variation thereof. Well, this is a new spin on an old favorite. Here’s the idea: things are easier to learn when it involves sex, drugs, and fucking swearing.

Why? Because we’re interested in that shit. Let’s say you’re trying to learn the word fecund.
Fecund means: capable of producing offspring or vegetation; fruitful; prolific.

Now here’s the example sentence that dictionary.com gives: In her first novel she portrays a lush, fecund landscape palpable in its sultriness and excess. and here’s The Fucking Word of the Day’s:

Octomom’s vagina is marvelously fecund. Which one do you think you’ll remember in ten minutes"
