Smiling Baby 398

Don’t let this innocent little baby’s looks deceive you. He is one conniving little bastard

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do. And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” – – Dr. Seuss

Smoking Hood 780

Finally, a more civil way to make smokers feel like the outcasts they truly are

It wasn’t the kind of day I expected. It started with a bran muffin and a bowl full of Bugles, and quickly went downhill from there. On the second level below ground I noticed my chin dragging in the dirt. On the third level down, it appeared there was no end in sight. Finally, when I hit bottom, a full 237 levels below the surface, I realized that I was living someone else’s life. Wow, wouldn’t it be great if it was just that easy, and all you had to do was wake up? Some days are like that. (Pics)

Taking the High Road 440

His dad always told him to take the high road, but this seemed a bit extreme

In a world dominated by right-handed people, the lefties are considered an anomaly. But, in a world controlled by left-brained people, the right brainers are also an anomaly. But when it comes to politics, there are apparently no anomalies. Both the lefties and the righties create their own extreme norms. (Pics)

ATM Skimmers: Part 2

atmskillerfeb2010

 In PART 1 of this series, we saw the first round of what seems to be turning into a dastardly trend. Now, Brian Krebs continues to scare the pants off of us with his ongoing series on sophisticated ATM skimmers (devices that capture your card number, working with a hidden camera to catch your PIN). His slideshow of next-gen skimmers has us convinced that there’s no way we would notice a skimmer on an ATM that I was using: “According to Doten, the U.S. Secret Service estimates that annual losses from ATM fraud totaled about $1 billion in 2008, or about $350,000 each day. Card skimming, where the fraudster affixes a bogus card reader on top of the real reader, accounts for more than 80 percent of ATM fraud, Doten said.”

Blast: A plume of sulphur and molten lava erupts from the West Mata Volcano
nearly 4,000 feet beneath the Pacific Ocean, south of Samoa
Scientists have witnessed the eruption of a deep-sea volcano for the first time ever, capturing on video the fiery bubbles of molten lava as they exploded 4,000 feet beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

Researchers are calling it a major geological discovery after a submersible robot witnessed the eruption during an underwater expedition in May near Samoa.

The high-definition videos were revealed last week at a geophysics conference in San Francisco.

A Watch That Shoots High Def Video

video watch hd 3421
For those of you who are dreaming about becoming the next James Bond, you’ll certainly be attracted to JTT’s WACAHD8GB wristwatch. It looks like your average wristwatch, but it it’s able to shoot 1280 x 960 resolution videos at 30fps, and you’ll also be able to take still shots that are just under 8-megapixels. While on paper it seems great, the quality of the images and videos taken show that the pictures have probably been interpolated (or stretched) to fit the resolution mentioned earlier…
