Juicero, Cold Press Juicer for Rich Weirdos: funny teardown.

4/20/2018

How to build a house alone: doesn’t look too difficult if you know what you’re doing. (I don’t have any idea what I’m doing.)

4/19/2018

Space Auction: bunk of NASA junk. These might be worth buying just to dare that one guy to eat them, you know that guy. [UPDATE: This one’s good for long trips.]

Buy Elon Musk a Couch: has raised ~6x goal in two days to buy furniture for a billionaire. (I’m not normally judgmental about how people spend their money, but come on!)

4/17/2018

A Song of Vanilla Ice and Fire: well-crafted version of Ice Ice Baby using Game of Thrones footage.

The Cake Server: holy crap! I am in awe.

Trump vs Talking Heads: very well done.

Deluxe – My Game: simply amazing video by one of my favorite bands.

Paul McCartney Rabbit Hole: not into the Beatles or Sir Paul, but this is exceedingly well done. {via}

Montville Schools’ Failure To Report ‘Fight Club’ Activity ‘Egregious’: in his defense, the teacher didn’t leave a sub plan for him to follow.

4/11/2018

Green-haired turtle that breathes through its genitals added to endangered list: isn’t that thwarting natural selection? This thing obviously can’t hack it.

Calvin County: I’m not a Calvin and Hobbes fan but I like the meshing of the styles. (Plus: Opus pisses himself.) {via}

Scott Frederick Wegener charged with making, blowing up improvised explosive devices in Fort Pierce: to be fair, the neighbor did steal his BB gun. Who wouldn’t make an IED to put under the thief’s house or at least try to blow up his chickens.

Items Found During #WeaponSweep: look at all the rope that can’t get cut now thanks to the London police. Phew! (In other news: if you may have committed a crime, manage to escape, and are close enough, they can now spray you so they can maybe find you later.)

How It’s Made – Toilet Paper: mesmerizing. {via}

4/4/2018

eGenesis: a George Church company that’s working on growing virus-resistant human organs in pigs. (From an incredible interview he gave on a podcast.)

Stockholm family wraps home in greenhouse to warm up weather: not a bad idea if you live in a very cold climate, I’d say. (I don’t.)

4/3/2018

Business owner building his own highway off-ramp: good luck with that. {via}

In Ethiopia, A New Ban On Foreign Adoptions Is About National Pride: this is quite troubling. Who cares if the children are condemned to a life of orphanages or abandonment, they must stay put.

Tesla – Robots are killing it: sometimes the incumbents are doing things a particular way for a good reason.

AirFish 8: like a boat but without all that water drag. I’m amazed that it’s classified as a marine craft rather than an airplane. The corporate video is compelling.
