Throwing sharp things and playing with propane and electricity. This is the sort of thing we like to see.

Jon says "You can mix-n-match legs and torsos, creating some 'women' who are freakishly mismatched in proportions. Uber-Creepy."
And he is so right.

Every model show rod from 1960 to 2001. Now I'm trying to dredge up, from the bottom of my glue-damaged brain, which of these I actually owned. This one for sure.
And this.

If you do Christmas and Thanksgiving, there's Tofurky, but if your celebration calls for a cannibal feast, and you're a vegetarian, you've been out of luck, until now.

A Science Project by Charina Cameron, Grade 10.

"The Toronto Subway fonts were developed from rubbings of the lettering etched into station walls and photographs of painted signage. The overall style of the lettering is very mechanical, almost naive, yet still having a certain amount of elegance, and this style was followed as much as possible in developing the companion lowercase, extended characters and extra punctuation."

Combine Demolition Derby. Out west, we like farm machinery, and we like a good demo derby. This, therefore, is about as good as it gets.

I'm not usually a fan of on-line petitions, but in this case, every bit helps. Help save super 8 kodachrome! While you're at it, tell kodak what you think. And shoot the damn stuff like there's no tomorrow. Because there probably isn't.

After the disappointment of the sasquatch movie, I really hope these people find their Mongolian Death Worm. Worm or no worm, the blog is worth a read.

Also, Barris.com is worth a look, if you haven't seen it.

Morse code is faster than SMS. Even (or rather, especially) with a 93 year-old at the key.

"Off the coast of the Japanese city of Nagasaki lies a terrifying symbol of shortsighted development. Out of the dark blue East China Sea rises a dead island covered with dilapidated concrete buildings. Forms of life are absent. No people, no animals. However, in the not so distant past more than five thousand inhabitants lived here. The voices of children echoed from the houses, laughter sounded in the streets. Now only dead concrete is left. This is the island Hashima, once the most densely populated place in the world. "
Some amazing photos here.
(Thanks, Ron!)
