Surfer dude flabbergasts scientists with new (possible) Holy Grail of physics - Unification Theory:
Like, the universe is one, man...
No, really. I'm not kidding. Seriously. This is not a joke. It even has a name. So does he. Garrett Lisi, and the E8 pattern. Yeah, I know...but at least if this whole physics thing doesn't work out, he's got a cool name for a band.

My life will never be the same...I have discovered manualism.

Check it out. I suggest starting with the William Tell Overture or the Super Mario Brother's theme.
His name is Jerry Phillips, and his ouvre and info is here. It includes everything from Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" to the "William Tell Overture" to Guns 'n Roses "Sweet Child of Mine."
Just amazing.
(In case you're wondering, manualism is playing music with your hands.)

I love random information.
Here are two great articles from one of my favorite sites, Damn Interesting

The first up is titled Amoebic Morality, and is about how single cell organisms can come together and cooperate, even sacrificing themselves for the greater good. Fascinating.

The second is the (true life) story of the origins of Assassins. Almost a thousand years ago, actually.
Have fun reading!

The Sultan’s Elephant - definitely the most giganormous marionette show you will ever see. Wow
(BTW, this is from one of my fav sites, the Athanasius Kircher Society blog)

I don't know about you, but to me there's just something inherently wrong with a dolphin sticking you with a hypodermic needle and pumping you full of CO2 so that you die and your body floats to the surface.

Somehow, that's just not right. But, I guess that's better than being killed by a flaming war pig...
The speed of light is slower than...the speed of light???!
High Energy Gamma Rays Go Slower Than Lower Energy Photons
Well isn't Einstein going to be upset...
Craigslist Meets WallStreet
Wow - great, honest response to a woman that is looking "to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year." Good read. Check it out.

And in the same vein (kind a way) - proof that:
There are no unattractive women
Amazing what a few hours of beauty treatments and makeovers can do.

BTW, this is from a great, often inspirational site called
Explore around a bit, it's got a lot of great stuff.

I love tehnology - just imagine the possibilities with this product:
New plastic is as strong as steel, and is transparent
Very cool.

This is pretty cool too.
Personal home observatories
Intelligent cat door - or "Flo Control" as they like to call it.
Might sound kind of strange, but actually is a pretty cool project.

Wow - Every woman has beauty. The proof is in the pictures.
The question is can she afford to show it. A free makeover can help.

Yes, I'm a geek, I admit it - but this stuff fascinates me...
Parallel universe proof

Spider-Man 3:How It Should Have Ended - Hilarious and oh so true

10 Best (Worst?) Animated Movies for (Traumatizing) Kids
Kind of ho-hum till you get to the end (though I agree some of the mentioned movies are not kid flicks (see: Hunchback of Notredame, etc), and Watership Down is kind of violent, but the last one was so funny I nearly fell out of my seat. Wow.
God responds to getting sued
...and I thought the whole $67 Million Lost Pants suit was enough legal ridiculosity for one year.
Sweet little headless robot dog...thing.

DARPA is behind it, and it traverses a rocky terrain like nobody's business. Good job, BostonDynamics.

How to think like a millionaire.
Now I just the car to make this work...
I want this Aweso shirt.

Thoughts from the Singularity Summit, such as:
Will Super Smart Artificial Intelligences Keep Humans Around As Pets?

Now there's a question to keep you thinking for a while...

You might not think of libraries as being beautiful, but these examples most definitely are:

Researchers at USC develop a 360-degree holographic display
Not perfect by a long shot, but still really cool.
Leave it to Texas...Monster spider web found! - more specifically - "a sprawling spider web that blankets several trees, shrubs and the ground along a 200-yard stretch of trail"

(video here)

Canada also gets in on the giant spiderweb weirdness too. Except they outdid that puny 200-yard stretch, and instead covered 60 acres with web.

Prius vs. Hummer - you wouldn't have guess who would win, enviornmentally speaking - appearances are not everything. But then again, there are better options than either.

Prius vs. Hummer

Just really makes you stop and think beyond your first thought. Here's a mantra for the day - "Think Deeper"
