NOT FUNNY APRIL FOOLS JOKES

  • screamers
  • fake coming outs
  • fake suicide
  • fake crushes
  • stuff that could hurt someone emotionally or physically

HILARIOUS APRIL FOOLS JOKES

  • rickrolling
  • putting googly eyes on stuff
  • putting only ONE ice cube in someone’s drink when they asked for a COUPLE

Rule of thumb: If you’re the only one who laughs, don’t do it.

Map of global carbon emissions

by Nathan Yau
Tadeu

Holy shit, northern hemisphere! You're like the dirty roommate!

Fossil fuel fluxes

Using data from the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Kennedy Elliott for the Washington Post mapped average grams of carbon dioxide worldwide.

As Elliot notes, "Mapping fossil fuel carbon dioxide emissions is a lot like mapping population density, because the source of this type of greenhouse gas is caused by human activity and infrastructure." So you can put away that xkcd comic on population density. But check out the shipping routes coming through in the ocean. Pretty neat.

These Posters Perfectly Sum Up Twentysomethings' Addiction To The Internet

Ajit Johnson’s #This_Generation series is wise to your dependence on your phone, wifi, and Facebook.

Johnson told BuzzFeed: "#This_Generation is a series of minimal posters made to illustrate how technology has invaded our lives in a humorous manner."

The internet is life. Don't pretend you wouldn't choose that too.

Ajit Johnson / Facebook: ajitjohnson.n

"Everyone is Skyping instead of meeting face-to-face, and texting instead of having a real conversation. Of course they are not intended to stereotype but rather re-evaluate the way we use technology and gadgets".

"BitCoin looks like it was designed as a weapon intended to damage central banking and money issuing..."

“BitCoin looks like it was designed as a weapon intended to damage central banking and money issuing banks, with a Libertarian political agenda in mind—to damage states ability to collect tax and monitor their citizens financial transactions. Which is fine if you’re a Libertarian, but I tend to take the stance that Libertarianism is like Leninism: a fascinating, internally consistent political theory with some good underlying points that, regrettably, makes prescriptions about how to run human society that can only work if we replace real messy human beings with frictionless spherical humanoids of uniform density (because it relies on simplifying assumptions about human behaviour which are unfortunately wrong).”

Personal work done after an amazing concept by Cory Loftis! The cool thing about it was the painting creation process. I’m not a good painter, so I made a 3d version of it and tweaked on Photoshop to looks like a painting. So, it’s like 2 works in one! heh! =)
Done with 3ds Max, V-ray, Ornatrix and P

This is seriously amazing. I can’t even find the words to say how awesome it looks

Surprising New Paste Ups Interact with the Street

by Benjamin Starr
Peanuts
Peanuts

Street artist/street modifier OakOak (previously) has been hard at work over the past year, transforming the streets into playgrounds for characters large and small. The French artist is a specialist in street interventions, using derelict objects like bent pipes, cracked pavement and nightly shadows as inspiration for his surprising brand of art.

In one recent example called ‘Peanuts’ he places Snoopy atop a parking meter’s shadow, which perfectly resembles the cartoon dog’s house. In another he creates a likeness of Banksy’s iconic Balloon Girl, only this time it’s Homer Simpson reaching for a tasty pink donut.

OakOak often creates temporal paste ups, sometimes using the same location more than once. See more of his creations at oakoak.fr.

SSDs de 10 TB? OMFG EU QUERO!!!

by Ronaldo Gogoni
hd-5 mb-plane

HD do IBM 305 RAMAC, o primeiro da história: incríveis 5 MB

Fato: o melhor upgrade que alguém pode fazer em um computador velho de guerra é trocar o HD por um SSD. O ganho de performance é absurdo, meu notebook de 2011 virou outro depois que adquiri um HyperX de 120 GB da Kingston. Custou um braço e uma perna, mas valeu a pena.

Só que como tudo na vida não existe almoço grátis: o que uso veio para substituir um HD falecido de 640 GB e é claro, perdi muito em espaço local de armazenamento. SSDs ainda são caros demais, utilizá-los para backup, embora fosse o ideal por terem uma vida útil invejável (principalmente para alguém que viu um HD externo morrer com o famigerado “click da morte”; os anos 1990 ligaram e pediram o Zip Drive de volta) e termos modelos de até 1 TB no mercado, ainda é um custo inviável para muita gente.

Isso não impede a Intel e a Toshiba de continuarem investindo em meios de atochar mais memória no menor espaço possível: na última semana, em eventos separados ambas anunciaram produtos para o futuro baseados na tecnologia 3D NAND, que empilha os chips de memória em camadas. É semelhante à técnica apresentada pela Samsung em 2013 com o chip 3D V-NAND, permitindo que ela desenvolvesse chips para smartphones com 384 GB.

3d-nand-toshiba

Chips 3D NAND de 48 camadas da Toshiba

Com a técnica é possível lançar chips e SSDs com capacidade de armazenamento muito maior do que os disponíveis hoje, mas sem fazer com que eles ocupem mais espaço. A Toshiba, primeira fabricante de discos sólidos apresentou o primeiro dispositivo com tecnologia 3D NAND de 48 camadas, resultando num chip de 16 GB, que segundo a fabricante é mais confiável no que tange ao processo de leitura e gravação, sem falar que sua velocidade de gravação é maior. A empresa japonesa vai enviar amostras para os parceiros, mas adiantou que novos produtos com a tecnologia só estarão disponíveis daqui a um ano.

3d-nand-32gb-intel

Chips 3D NAND de 32 camadas da Intel: 32 GB de espaço em cada um

Ao mesmo tempo, a Intel em parceria com a Micron revelou já estar produzindo seus chips 3D NAND de 32 camadas, e também fixaram para 2016 a introdução dos primeiros produtos com a tecnologia embarcada. Eles trabalham com chips de 32 GB e já prometeram uma versão de 48 GB para breve. Ela adiantou entretanto que é perfeitamente possível fabricar SSDs de 3,5 TB do tamanho de um chiclete (provavelmente um mSATA), bem como modelos tradicionais de 2,5 polegadas com suculentos 10 TB de espaço.

O legal disso tudo é que num futuro próximo, com modelos de capacidades maiores no mercado o preço geral do SSD tende a cair, permitindo que modelos de até 1 TB virem commodities e possam enfim tomar o lugar do HD, o que é benéfico para todo mundo. Por enquanto fica o aviso: quando esses SSDs de 10 TB chegarem, é bom que você esteja sentado quando ouvir o preço.

A Visualization Depicts a Sunset With the Sun Replaced by Other Stars

by Glen Tickle
Tadeu

Mal posso esperar pra "Elite: Dangerous" ter pouso em planetas :P

sun replaced with other stars

A visualization by Halcyon Maps (previously) shows a sunset scene with the Sun being replaced by other stars of various size and brightness. The visualization only takes size and brightness into account, since the reality is that liquid water and life on Earth would most likely not exist at the same distance from the other stars.

Prints can be ordered through the Halcyon Maps site.

AEP : This Photographer Got Banned Because He Took These Photos. No One Has Seen Them Until Now.

When photographer Eric Lafforgue took photo’s of North Korea this year, he never expected to be banned from the rogue state for his entire life. North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, was strongly opposed to anyone seeing these photos because the images reveal the shocking extent of the deprivation suffered by people who live there. Here are the photographs of North Korea that ultimately got Lafforgue banned for the rest of his life.

North Korea does not allow you to photograph anyone who appears to be suffering from malnutrition.

You are not allowed to photograph anything that resembles poverty.

It’s okay to take photos of kids on computers, just not when it shows that the computers have no power.

He was asked to delete all photos of malnutrition like this photo above.

He was told to delete this photo because they feared that this photo would say this man was dead. He was actually alive, but just resting after a long day.

This photo portrays poverty which is illegal to photograph.

The power went out during this photo. He was told to delete it and was told that when the power goes out, it’s because of the American embargo.

Taking pictures of people who ride their bikes for hours to get to work is forbidden.

North Korea says foreign aid is a war debt and taking photos of any WFP sign is forbidden.

North Korea doesn't allow any photographs of soldiers to be taken. Especially when soldiers are pushing a broken down bus.

A Black and Blue Life: A Coal Miner Becomes a Photographer of Exquisite Waves and Seascapes

by Christopher Jobson

Convection - Ray Collins

Australian photographer Ray Collins first picked up a camera in 2007 and used it to photograph his friends surfing around his home after long shifts working in a nearby coal mine. His attention quickly shifted from his friends to patterns and forms he noticed in the waves. Collins, who is colorblind, was also drawn to the interplay of light and water, perhaps more attune to contrast than the nuance of color. He poetically refers to this switch from coal miner to fine art photographer as a balance between his “black life and blue life.”

The accolades, awards, and sponsorships have been heaped on Collins leading to the publication of his first book, Found at Sea, he also has a wide variety of prints on his website, and you can follow his photography day-to-day on Instagram. (via Laughing Squid)

Faroe Islands by Julian Calverley

From the Artist: We recently spent a wonderful week on the Faroe Islands, shooting for Land Rover. These beautiful islands have an atmosphere all of their own, so when I’m asked to describe them, it’s hard to make a comparison to anywhere I’ve been previously, the only one I can come up with is a vague cross between Iceland and parts of N.W Scotland, but really it is quite unique.
