Life, The Universe, And Everything… To Scale

We all know that the answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything is 42. If only we knew what The Question actually was this answer might make sense. While this cool website won’t provide you with The Question of the Universe, it will show you exactly “how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is.”

Needless to say this Scale of the Universe website is VERY cool! Plan to browse awhile. And “Don’t Panic!”. Peril-sensitive glasses are NOT required to to view safely.

Creative Reading

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson (essayist, poet 1803-1882)

The Crapper Yapper Drug Thug

Strange, gross, but true:

So, I go to use the john at a large retailer of Chinese junk. Some guy comes in behind me, and we each go to neighboring stalls to do our business. While he’s about that and making appropriate noises from his back side, it’s clear he has taken out his cell phone and begins to yap while he craps. If that weren’t bad enough, what does he choose to talk about?

Here’s an exact quote:

“Hey, dude. I was wondering how much it would cost for a ‘P’?”

I guess if you have the gall to make a phone call while you’re doing your business, it doesn’t phase you to discuss small-time illegal drug deals while a stranger sits in the next stall. With all the noise he was making from his other end, he even had to raise his voice and repeat his inquiry on the current price of a pound of dope.

The devolution of the species continues at an alarming rate.

I’m So Vain, I Probably Think This Blog Is About Me…

Okay, this video only shows just how vain (and geeky) I have become, because the StanBlog segment of this video made me think of this Finious’s Folly / JeffBeaty.com website, which I named after myself, and which has no specific goal. That being the case it is still darn funny.

The Defenders of Stan Episode 17: Oh, (Big) Brother

You almost have to watch the whole series of Defenders of Stan videos. Basically everyone BUT Stan is a superhero. Continue reading I’m So Vain, I Probably Think This Blog Is About Me…

Cool Lego Link Icons

Sociolego Icon Pack Sample Found some free Lego-themed link icons that I really like by Sneh Roy. There are icons for several different social websites in her icon pack, but only a couple to sites I use frequently. I’m using the feed and Facebook icons now. I may have to make a couple of my own mimicking her “look” to add icons for Google+ / Picasa or Flickr and maybe Springpad.
