Snappy Butter Burst Oil

by drew


This is a gallon of butter-flavored oil, which looks to be the same kind that’s used at the movies. What caught my eye was the reviewer who said “Have had it about 6 weeks and time to order more.”

A gallon of vegetable oil contains 30,000 calories. That means that this reviewer is either consuming 700 calories of oil daily, or 4200 calories (in one “movie night” sitting) every week.

It's an impressive looking knot.
I thought I'd post it for the one or two of you who still wear ties AND
have the ability to follow the directions or were boy scouts or
are into bondage. ;)

Frank Bruni On Hand-Holding

by Joe
"After all the education that we Americans have had and all the relished progress we’ve made, being gay does mean feeling constrained in situations where most people aren’t, scared in circumstances that wouldn’t frighten others in the least, self-conscious when you shouldn’t have to be. Like when you’re holding someone’s hand. It’s the sweetest, most innocent and most natural of gestures: to interlock your fingers with those of a person for whom you’re feeling a sudden rush of affection. A person you maybe love. And yet when my partner takes my hand in public in New York City, I look at the sidewalk ahead. I note how many pedestrians are coming our way, and how quickly, and whether they’re male or female, young or old, observant or distracted. And I sometimes take my hand back, wishing I were braver, wishing our world didn’t ask me to be." - Frank Bruni, in a New York Times essay which refers to yesterday's gay-bashing in Chelsea.

The Science of the Great Molasses Flood

by Paul Hsieh
"The Science of the Great Molasses Flood: In 1919 a wave of syrup swept through the streets of Boston. Fluid dynamics explains why it was even more devastating than a typical tsunami."

Basically, the problem arises because molasses is a non-Newtonian fluid.

How Your Brain Becomes Addicted to Caffeine

"This Is How Your Brain Becomes Addicted to Caffeine".

"Addiction" is such an ugly word. I prefer the term "special relationship".

 Incredible Long Exposure Photographs Shot from Orbit

Wonderful long exposure photographs taken by astronaut Don Pettit. While there are many photos like these taken from the perspective of the Earth’s surface, Pettit’s images are unique in that they incorporate the passing blur of entire illuminated cities, aurora, and the sporadic flashes of lightening from thunderstorms. Check out many more photos from the series here.

Brooklyn, Block by Block

by swissmiss


Thomas Rhiel created this stunning, colorful map of all of Brooklyn’s 320,000+ buildings. He plotted and shaded each of them according to its year of construction. The result is a snapshot of Brooklyn’s evolution, revealing how development has rippled across certain neighborhoods while leaving some pockets unchanged for decades, even centuries.
