Baby Cage



"Built in 1937 and distributed in London to members of the Chelsea Baby Club, the baby cage was meant for women with children but without a backyard, garden or terrace for them to play in or on.

Suspended from the side of the building, the baby would have access to fresh air and sunlight through the cage's wire frame, and still have sufficient room to play with toys, according to a patent filed in 1922 by an Emma Read of Spokane, WA. The patent also notes that the cage could double as a place to sleep, with removable curtains working to prevent a draft."

Creating a new New York


"Zeppelins were ushering in a new era in air transportation at just about the same time that land reclamation seemed the modern thing to do at sea. Possibly spurred on by the example of the Dutch, who then were in the midst of a multi-decade project to tame the North Sea (1), some early 20th-century visionaries called for reclaiming land on a super-sized scale: drying up the North Sea to reconnect Britain with mainland Europe (2), or even damming the entire Mediterranean for hydro-electricity and arable land (3).

America wasn't immune to the fad. In 1911, Dr T. Kennard Thomson proposed to expand New York into its adjacent waters for a grand total of 50 square miles. Thomson was neither a lightweight nor a crackpot. As a consulting engineer and urban planner for the City of New York, he had been involved in the construction of numerous bridges and over 20 of New York's early skyscrapers, specialising in their foundations, designing pneumatic caissons. It was the versatility of these caissons that would lead Dr Thomson to envisage a much wider application for them. In August of 1916, he wrote an article in Popular Science, advocating 'A Really Greater New York'."

Cell phone in 1928 film - time travel?


This begs the question, even if this were a cell phone, who else has a phone at the time? And where are the radio towers for it?

Probably just mental illness.

Largst possible Sim City

"Technically, no one is leaving or coming into the city. Population growth is stagnant. Sims don’t need to travel long distances, because their workplace is just within walking distance. In fact they do not even need to leave their own block… Suffocating air pollution, high unemployment, no fire stations, schools, or hospitals, a regimented lifestyle – this is the price that these sims pay for living in the city with the highest population. It’s a sick and twisted goal to strive towards. The ironic thing about it is the sims in Magnasanti tolerate it. They don’t rebel, or cause revolutions and social chaos. No one considers challenging the system by physical means since a hyper-efficient police state keeps them in line. They have all been successfully dumbed down, sickened with poor health, enslaved and mind-controlled just enough to keep this system going for thousands of years…"

Bullets fired into ice bounce, and spin like crazy
Friday, October 15, 2010


So what is going on here? Well the bullets are bouncing out of the ice every few shots, into the air, and landing again on the ice. That is actually the most remarkable part of this video, but these guys do not seem shocked. That the bullets spin and spin for a long time is not very shocking. Firstly, bullets from a rifled gun routinely exceed 3000 RPS. That is 180,000 RPM. Very very fast for an object as massive as they are. Ice is also almost frictionless to a hot object. There are some scenarios where bullets can break 500,000 rpm. That is a ton of angular momentum.

I am personally interested to see that the bullets are not deformed in any way by the impact.

10 coolest future city concepts
Thursday, October 14, 2010


"The Bionic tower is project designed by Spanish architects Eloy Celaya, Rosa Cervera and Javier Gomez. It’s proposed vertical city, an extremely large building purposed for human habitation of 100,000 people. It would be built on completely artificial island of 0.4 square miles connected to the mainland. It would cost about 15 billion dollars. Until now the cities of Shanghai and Hong Kong have shown interest for this project."

Kill Soup Dumpling - Joe's Shanghai


"Here's a Kill Bill spoof on how to eat Joe's Shanghai Restaurant's famous soup dumplings correctly. If you have ever visited New York City's Chinatown, or the Chinatown in Flushing, Queens, be sure to try these popular soup dumplings. They are fantastic. You won't be able to eat just one! They come in either crab or pork, of which I recommend the pork. It is my favorite. However, make sure that you know how to eat them correctly... you have been warned! The first time I dove into one of these bad boys, I burned my lip and had soup all over my shirt... looked like I just walked out of a Kill Bill fight scene. You'll love it. Their Soup Dumplings are 5 Stars All the Way"

This basically shows every experience ever at a Chinese restaurant.

Worlds largest Yo-Yo




"This project was 2 months in development. For 2 weeks I drew up the plans and found the materials, and then in August Gunter (Splugen on YoYoSkills.com) and I found time to build it. Then, for 6 weeks we looked for a location to film the throw. One day it dawned on me that the Worlds Largest Handheld Yo-Yo would feel right at home next to Tom Kuhn’s Worlds Largest Wood Yo-Yo at the National Yo-Yo Museum at Bird in Hand in Chico California. While I was there, I saw that the Parking Garage had top level access and so it was decided. In the middle of YoYo Club, My experiment was itching to be dropped.

Yes, I know that it is not perfect, but it was all for the pure joy of yo-yo fun. I could not have asked for a better time.

And also Yes, I realize that there is currently no “Largest Handheld Yo-Yo” world record but I don’t care, I am claiming it so… THERE IS NOW!"
