Minimalist Periodic Table Illustrates the Chemical Structures of Elements

by Kimber Streams

Periodic Table

London-based graphic designer Alison Haigh has created a minimalist periodic table in which each element is represented by its chemical structure — each dot represents an electron — rather than its symbol and atomic weight. Prints of the unique periodic table can be ordered from Haigh’s website.

Just a friendly reminder, me and Phil Plait wrote a book of nerd disses, illustrated by Jess Fink. You can pay anything over a dollar. It'll solve all your personal problems the moment you own it.*

Overcoming “Impostor Syndrome”

by behanceteam


Impostor Syndrome is feeling like you’re not worthy of whatever success you’ve had. You feel that you’ll be “found out” at any second.

Students don’t just feel this. Everyone encounters this at some points. But why? Why do we feel like this? Dr. Valerie Young says that, “The thing about ‘impostors’ is they have unsustainably high standards for everything they do. The thinking here is, If I don’t know everything, then I know nothing. If it’s not absolutely perfect, it’s woefully deficient. If I’m not operating at the top of my game 24/7, then I’m incompetent.”

Cyclone Life has some tips on how to break out of the cycle.

She Also Speaks Ironic

Fast Food, Restaurant | Brisbane, QLD, Australia

(I manage a fast food restaurant. I’m currently serving a customer who is from East Asia. She is clearly new to the country, as she is having significant trouble with the transaction, and I’m finding it difficult to communicate. My coworker steps in.)

Coworker: “Excuse me, where are you from?”

Asian Customer: “I am from Korea.”

(Suddenly, the next customer in line speaks up.)

Customer: “Racist! You’re a racist!”

Coworker: “Excuse me, ma’am?”

Customer: “I said you’re a racist! It doesn’t matter where this young lady comes from, she should be welcome in your store. You should feel ashamed!”

(The shouting customer turns to me.)

Customer: “You! Do something about her!”

Me: “I absolutely agree. You see, my coworker here is studying a master’s degree in Asian studies. She was just asking because she could process this transaction in Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese or Indonesian, and didn’t want to look like an idiot by making an assumption about someone she didn’t know.”

Raising A Voodoo Child

Music School | Winnipeg, MB, Canada

(I have been a music instructor for over three decades. An angry mom confronts me before her son’s drum lesson.)

Angry Mom: “Why are you showing my son all of these heavy metal and rock songs to play drums to?”

Me: “Because he asked me to. He seems to like that type of music.”

Angry Mom: “He most certainly DOES NOT like that music. It’s overtly sexual, violent and demonic. Why can’t you show him good music? Instead of this Metallica and ACDC garbage.”

Me: “Good music?”

Angry Mom: “YES! Good music. The 60s. Jimi Hendrix. The Beatles. The Rolling Stones?”

Me: “Maybe ‘Hey Joe,’ by Jimi Hendrix?”

Angry Mom: “Exactly!”

Me: “‘I’m just going down to shoot my old lady, I caught her messing around with another man….’ That ‘Hey Joe?’”

Angry Mom: “Yes! The classics!”

Sayings 2.0


Sayings 2.0

A couple of things. First off, ‘Close but no WiFi’ is something my cousin Nab said once, and it got me thinking about other sayings. Secondly, yes, some of these don’t quite make sense if you think about them too long—some are just meant to be funny. Also, ‘Don’t bite the hand…’ came to mind when thinking of the Google RSS debacle, and for some strange reason when I look at ‘Never judge an app by its icon’, I think of Marco Arment’s Bugshot (I know the story behind it, so in the words of Marco “Don’t email me.”). Also, normally with a post like this I’d ask for y’all’s ideas on other ones, but I plan on doing another set, so I don’t want to cheat by seeing some other great ones. ;) Thanks for reading this whole thing.

Nick Carter, do Backstreet Boys, quer o seu dinheiro para fazer filme de terror

by Phelipe Cruz

É isso mesmo. O cantor quer virar produtor de cinema. Nick Carter, do Backstreet Boys, quer fazer um filme de terror e está pedindo a contribuição das pessoas para levantar uma grana e custear a produção.

Ele postou no site de “vaquinhas” Indiegogo uma mensagem pedindo por 85 mil dólares para criar “Evil Blessings”, um filme sobre “três amigos que vão para uma montanha caçar, mas logo descobrem que eles são os caçados por uma família anciã do mal”.

O cantor de 33 anos explica que é apaixonado por música, mas o que ninguém sabe é que ele tem um sonho: “me tornar um produtor e roteirista”. Tem até um vídeo dele fazendo o pedido.

Até o momento da publicação dessa matéria, ele já tinha arrecadado quase 20 mil dólares.

Você vai ajudar? Eu até acho legal essa ideia, mas vem cá… Nick Carter não tem 85 mil dólares para fazer um filme, gente? Sério?


Olha, eu até contribuo, mas quero no filme um remake dessa cena tirada do clipe de “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)”… Tô pagando, ué!

Lego cria edição especial da máquina do tempo de “De Volta para o Futuro”

by Caio Caprioli


Vou descrever este post em uma palavra: amor. A Lego lança, em 1 de agosto, um set especial de lego com a máquina do tempo de “De Volta para o Futuro“.

Não é só isso, não. O set traz o DeLorean usado para viajar no tempo de uma forma que você pode customizar para criar três modelos diferentes, de acordo com a trilogia. Sacou? Amou? Calma…

O brinquedo foi produzido através de um modelo enviado por um fã. As peças são todas estilizadas para que o carro fique bem parecido com o original. Além de ter os mesmo desenhos do marcador de tempo no painel, ainda é possível mexer as portas, que se abrem para cima, e dobrar as rodas, para o carro “levitar”, como nos filmes.


Ainda vêm dois bonequinhos fofos do Marty McFly (e seu skate) e o Doutor Brown. <3

Lá fora vai custar US$ 34,99 e a edição será lançada no dia 1º de agosto nos Estados Unidos. Será que alguém vai trazer essa raridade pro Brasil?

One-Pan Pasta

by Tim


I am here to tell you about a recipe for pasta that you cook in one pan. One pan, people! Dried noodles, sauce ingredients, water—they all get thrown into a big pan and boiled for less than 10 minutes. You end up with a totally delicious dinner, and a party trick.


I know this recipe is making the rounds. I would even bet that it is blowing up in Pinterest (is it?). I imagine that anyone who saw this in Martha Stewart Living this month knew they needed to try it. It is such a simple idea that I am surprised we haven’t all been doing this the whole time.

I like the recipe because it allows you to get dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes. It is also fun for the cook. That first time you make it you wonder if it will all come together. Is this even possible? Then, the noodles begin to soften, the liquid reduces into a creamy sauce, and you know you’ve got a winner. The real brilliance of the recipe is that by cooking the noodles with the sauce, they absorb so much more flavor than a pot of salted water could ever provide.


Salt is your friend in this dish, don’t skimp! You need a big skillet, big enough for the linguine to lie flat across the bottom.

One-Pan Pasta (adapted slightly from Martha Stewart Living)

  • 12 ounces linguine
  • 12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered if large
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2- 3/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
  • 2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • Lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

Combine pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, red-pepper flakes, basil, oil, 2 teaspoons kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and water in a large straight-sided skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil mixture, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs, until pasta is al dente and water has nearly evaporated, about 9 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 4 bowls, and garnish with basil. Serve with oil and Parmesan.

By now you’ve checked out my Best Red Lip Shade For Every Skin Tone Tutorial as well as my Making Red Lips Last Tutorial. Well, this delicious look gets its inspiration from shiny cherries, red apples and juicy pomegranates… and was spotted on the 2013 A/W Kenneth Cole runway. It’s a gorgeous twist on the standard red lip, brought to life with added dimensions and a glossy finish. Here’s how:



  1. Line the upper and bottom perimeters with the red lip pencil, leaving the corners bare (as demonstrated above).
  2. Fill in the areas under and above the perimeters, still leaving the corners bare.
  3. Fill in both corners with the berry-colored pencil.
  4. Use the clear lip gloss to blend and bring everything to life.
