This is a massive domino maze depicting the fall of the dinosaurs as told by domino-lover Flippycat (of Starry Night, Nintendo, laser and wall-themed domino maze fame). It took almost 39 hours of setup over two weeks to complete the scenes and less than a minute and a half to knock them all down. One thing is for certain though: no matter how it’s told, the story of the dinosaurs dying is always sad. I just cried. HARD. So hard I’m blowing snot bubbles. No, no I’m not. I am blowing bubbles in my chocolate milk though. “What are you, six?” In good looks? I’m probably closer to a four.
Hit the jump for the video. All the action is in the first 1:30, the rest is time-lapse of him setting up all the scenes.
This is a glass collaboration piece from Elbo Glass and Glass Munky. It’s a pipe that looks like a microscope. You just put the sample (read: weed) you want to study (read: smoke) into the bowl, add a little fire, and TA-DA — you’re experimenting. WITH DRUGS. Be careful folks, marijuana is a notorious gateway drug. The gateway to good times and new sandwiches! But if my parole officer asks I never said that. Sell me some clean piss?
Thanks to Terry, who only smokes out of tin-foil because he heard it weakens your sperm and he needs that to prevent them from trying to burrow through the walls of his balls.
We’re sure Psystar, its lawyers and its tens of fans, didn’t really expect to win the appeal it filed following the permanent injunction handed down against its commercial hackintoshes, but you can’t blame the company for trying. A little over three years after the drama began, with Apple suing to ban the Psystar’s products, it seems the epic tale has come to an end. The company hasn’t really been in business since December of ’09 anyway, so today’s ruling upholding the injunction won’t make much of a difference either way. We’re just sad that this may, in fact, be the last time we ever hear from Eugene Action — let’s take a moment to reminisce, shall we?
What happens when you take a couple of talented dudes, a bunch of projectors, and a handful of phones spray-painted white to act as a canvas?

Who saw this coming? Oh, right: most everyone. Gotcha. The Federal Government has admitted to storing those full-body scan images that had privacy advocates so worked up over the past few months. This, despite the fact that it said it wouldnâ€™t store the images. Say one thing, do another. Yay.
Even more annoying is the fact that these full-body scanning machines were sold to us as not even being able to store images at all! As if there was no memory for the pictures to go after they had been taken.
Clearly we have been misled.
The U.S. Marshal Service admitted to storing tens of thousands of images without the permission of passengers. They didnâ€™t even notify the passengers! Youâ€™d at least like to see something like, â€œLike it or not, but weâ€™re keeping these photos. You donâ€™t like it then donâ€™t board the airplane.â€
The Transportation Security Administration now says those body scanners must be able to store images for â€œtesting, training, and evaluation purposes.â€
Does this all ring a bell? The full-body scanners, weâ€™ve been told, are a safe, secure way to check out whether or not someone is trying to carry contraband on-board an airplane. (Well, itâ€™s quick than a traditional pat-down.) We were told that the scanning process would be split into two: the person hitting the â€œscanâ€ button, and the person in a separate room actually analyzing the photo. That way the person doing the analyzing doesnâ€™t actually know what the person in the photo looks like.
Remember: for your protection.
I didnâ€™t mind the scanners in the beginning, but Iâ€™m not a fan of being misled to.

Sellele erilise inimesele minu sÃ¼dames Eesti keeles: Sa kord Ã¼tlesid mulle, et ma ei saa seda piisavalt teadma. Oh las ma Ã¼tlen sulle midagi Jah, ma tean.

The most famous business journalist in the world – Maria Bartiromo – started her career as a production assistant at CNN. She was pulling the overnight shift for years before moving on to become a producer.
Maria did every line production job in the place and then got “promoted” behind the scenes. And hated it. So she put an audition tape together, applied for an on-camera reporting job at the then-fledgling network CNBC, and got it.
Lou Dobbs, her boss at CNN who had given her a promotion to a senior producer position, was not happy with her departure. In fact, he told her that she was making the biggest mistake of her life.
This interview is part of our Leadership series. It is presented by Marriott with limited commercial interruption.
