I have been saying this for years and years: your body’s internal clock is at war with society.

"Rob Flickenger made a handheld Tesla coil gun. It's amazing and amazingly dangerous. Don't do this. Live vicariously through Flickenger instead."
*
And for more on Tesla, here's an amazing history of his genius from The Oatmeal (light language warning).
*
Photographs of homesteaders from 1907-1920. These people were more hardcore than I will ever hope to be.
*
Another one from the vintage vault - an abandoned New York movie theater that is both creepy and really beautiful.
*
From Cindy, an astonishing bird-shaped cloud appeared in Iceland this week. But what doth it portend??
*
Here are 10 movie poster cliches (with plenty of examples). There are more at Christophe Courtois' site, along with explanations as to their meaning … but it's in French and I can't seem to get a good blanket translation page to work (the link to his site is on the site I am linking to here … Linkception!)
*
Speaking of … how about some islandception?
*
Robot Revolution Update: the Russians have created a really, really, creepy robot.
*
"This song makes me feel crazy, like I've eaten loads of sweets." Kids (English kids no less!) review Skrillex (and dance around).
*
Note to my childhood: apparently two cans and a string is possible as a communication device. I'm posting this because I want to know if you've tried it (I don't have paper cups at my disposal at the moment) and does it really work? Also, the How Stuff Works site is A+ in general.
