iPhone Chemistry

YouTube Link

This video gives us a breakdown of the elements that make up an iPhone. How many can you guess before learning the answers? As it turns out, the screen consists of some of the rarest chemical substances on the planet. Funny, the screen seemed to me to be the most ordinary part. Via The Presurfer.

The Best of the Joe Rogan Experience

Image Credit: JoeRogan.net

It may have been easy for some people to write off comedian Joe Rogan as a meat head when they first saw him. A ripped guy who seems very manly, and is usually talking with glee about people's bones being broken in the UFC. Truth is, beneath his gruff exterior is a man who knows much, about some very intense and varying subjects. From the positive potential of psychedelics to the idea that we exist within and across multiple dimensions of reality, his Joe Rogan Experience podcast is quite a trippy ride that will open even the most cynical and clouded eyes.

But for those who have never listened before and have no idea just how deep the waters run, Adjust Your Perspective put together this awesome list of then ten best moment from the Joe Rogan Experience. All I ask is if you look at him as some characterization, take a moment to check the list out. Dude really is a genius, and has  gift for shifting the way other people think as well. Do your brain a favor and give it a shot. You might just be surprised at how "third eye" opening it really is.

Vintage Board Games That Are Violent Fun For The Whole Family

Many board games are created to be enjoyed by the entire family, and the idea of family game night was definitely helped along by toy manufacturers eager to sell more copies of their games.

Playing a board game with your parents is way more fun than taking candid family portraits, or watching their old home movies for the millionth time, but then again some family style games can feel like pure torture.

(Video Link)

Toy enjoyer Attaboy hosted an episode of the web series “They Actually Made That!?” dealing with the strange and violent board games of yesteryear, from the family friendly Russian Roulette game Cold Feet to the hammer smashing "fun" of Bash!

Who says family game night has to be relaxing?

Impressive Works Of Art And Architecture In The Middle Of Nowhere

Impressive works of art and architecture are no less impressive when there’s nobody there to see them, and sometimes their remote placement can make them seem even more spectacular:

(Image Link)

This bust of Lenin was Russia's response to the U.S. setting up a research station at the South Pole in the 1950s- Russian scientists placed this "research station" in the most difficult spot to reach in Antarctica, then they planted a cherry on top shaped like Lenin's head.

A bust in the middle of nowhere almost makes sense, but creating an art installation modeled after a Prada store in the middle of nowhere...now that's highbrow!

(Image Link)

This Prada "store" is located in remote Marfa, Texas- Population 2,000, not one of 'em a fan of Prada.

There's a full stock of merchandise inside the store, but there aren't any cash registers, or doors for that matter, as creators Elmgreen & Dragset intend to let the building slowly become one with the high desert.

Speaking of a structure with no customers- there's one and only one movie theater in the middle of Egypt's Sinai Desert, but they haven't had a customer for years:

(Image Link)

The End of the World Cinema was built just over a decade ago by an unnamed French man who had the seats, projection equipment, a screen and a generator trucked in, hoping to start a cinematic sensation.

Sadly, the generator failed almost immediately and the whole doomed project was left to rot, but according to recent reports the entire place has been trashed, by desert dwelling movie critics no doubt...

These Pics Prove Selfies Are Out Of Control

Selfie mania snaps on, pic after pic rolling out to validate the existence of people who didn’t feel alive before they had a camera in their phone so they could document every face, every outfit, every meetup with a friend.

(Image Link)

Selfie-palooza, selfie-ver, selfie-delia, selfie-fest 201X, things are about to go way too far in the world of selfies when a bloody accident selfie gets 2600 likes:

(Image Link)

It’s about to become a selfie-pocalypse with the tweeting and the booking of faces, a social media meltdown of epic proportions led by someone who looks and acts exactly like this guy:

(Image Link)

Those who don’t have a full blown case of selfie-itis are safe, but if you feel pic fever coming on put down your phone and go cold turkey, so you don’t end up like this:

Ancient Warriors Drew Power From The Crying Infants On Their Backs

(Image Link)

Imagine how fierce the Vikings would have been if their axe chops and spear thrusts were enhanced by the raw power of baby cries, and the need to protect the infant strapped to their backs.

That’s the “extreme infant distress vocalization” theory that won MIT grad Tomer Ullman the grand prize at last year’s Festival of Bad Ad Hoc Hypotheses.

(YouTube Link)

BAHFest gathers the most imaginative minds for a “celebration of well-researched, logically explained, and clearly wrong evolutionary theories”, and this gathering of like-minded thinkers owes its creation to this cartoon by SMBC's Zach Weiner:

BAHFest is about to return for not one but two times the backwards ideas about biological adaptation this October, with an east coast fest in Cambridge, MA on October 19th, followed by a west coast conference at San Francisco's Castro Theatre on October 25th.

What sort of crazed revelation will earn their conceiver the coveted Skeptically Shrugging Darwin statue, perhaps an updated theory about the joys of battling with a baby strapped to your back?

Surgeon Removes Brain Tumor from Goldfish


(Photo: Lort Smith)

George is a 10-year old goldfish that lives in Australia. He had a brain tumor that was gradually impairing his health. So his owner, Pip Joyce, paid a veterinarian at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital in Melbourne to surgically remove it.


(Photo: Lort Smith)

This was a challenging operation that required George to be placed under anesthesia. The veterinary staff pumped water into his gills to keep him breathing during the 45-minute operation. It was a complete success and George has now returned to his home pond where he lives with 20 other goldfish. There's every reason to think that he will continue to live another 20 years.

Billy The Butcher's Superhero Beer Art

Image Credit: Billy the Butcher

Can we imagine, for just one simple moment, that superhero's had beer brands? Can I live in a world where Deadpool can have his own lager that I can go buy at the local package store after a long shift of writing stuff? I mean, imagine how good a beer brewed by Wolverine would be? The dude loves the stuff. Lives off it, even.

Alas, I cannot live in that world. You see, that world does not exist.

What is great, though, is I can live in a world where artist Billy Butcher can illustrate faux beer labels as if they were the beers of superheroes, and that's a pretty good world to live in, too. I would say Hellboy's "HellBeer" wins for catchiest name. You can see why these would never be made, as they could very much appeal to children. Or grown men who think they are children, like me.

Either way, great concept and slick execution.

Dolly Parton's "Jolene" Slowed Down Sounds Like A Different Song (and It's Awesome)

If you do not own a record player, it should be known that you are not hearing music right. Don't get me wrong, there are the over-hyped, celebrity, DJ headpones, and there are high quality digital recordings you can get. But people who grew up listening to a record player know, that is just the greatest way to listen to music. Maybe not technically,  but from a nostalgia stand point it wins, hands down.

The record player also has some really cool features, too. Like being able to slow down the music you listen to. While in most cases, slowed down music just sounds like, well, slowed down music, in the case of Dolly Parton's "Jolene," something extraordinary happens. It is like the song transforms and is suddenly sung perfectly, just  a bit more depressing and with a guy's voice instead.

Check it out yourself.

(YouTube Link)

A song about heartbreak suddenly takes on an even more somber tone. I will even go so far as to say I am not a fan of the original, but the slowed down de-make (seems a fitting word) really works for me. See, you can't do THAT on modern machinery.

Oh wait, you can? Man, I gotta leave the house more.

Everything Wrong With Frozen In Ten Minutes or Less

When I first found the YouTube channel for Cinema Sins I was both excited and a little crushed. Excited because I love film and love the deep examination and dissection of it as an art form. The crushed part came from the fact that I knew the channel would probably show me some flaws in some movies I really enjoyed. A good example of a polarizing movie choice is the following: Frozen.

A beloved Disney movie that somehow took on legs of its own and became the most successful animated movie of all time is one you have to be slightly careful when you decided to pick apart, piece by piece. Luckily, the guys behind the site clearly know what they are doing, and how to do it. So though most of us may have enjoyed it, take a moment to check out everything wrong with Frozen. It is not a cruel or as painful as it sounds.

(YouTube Link)

Don't worry if they point out something that really bothers you. The trick is, you just got to let it go. Sorry folks, that was low hanging fruit and I had to go for it.

The Daily Spoon--An Artist Makes a New Wooden Spoon Every Day for a Year

How do artists stimulate their imaginations? Some artists engage in a daily creative process--a discipline that compels them to create something along a theme. One Pixar animator makes a new superhero every day. Nick Scalin made skulls every day for a year. Other artists photograph miniatures or decorate coffee cups.

For Stian Korntved Ruud, an artist from Norway, it's wooden spoons. Every day for a full year, he plans to make a wooden spoon:

By repeating the production of a spoon every day for a longer period of time (365 days), the goal is to challenge and explore a spoons aesthetic and functional qualities. I make all the spoons in a traditional way with only hand tools. The point of this is to actively cooperate with the material, in this case wood. In a modern industrial production the machines overwrites the wooden structures and natural growth pattern. When using manual hand tools my hand collaborates with the wood structure during the forming process. This underpins all the spoons unique qualities.

Some of his spoons may be impractical, but all of them are fun. Click on Continue reading to view more.

Chinese City Creates Pedestrian Lane for Smart Phone Users



The Chinese city of Chongqing created what is thought to be the world's first pedestrian lane specifically for those using smart phones. In an effort to make a point that pedestrians who aren't paying attention to their surroundings are a danger to others, the city divided a length of approximately 170 feet to separate the phone hawks from the rest of the public who is interested in getting from point A to B expeditiously. 

While any results from this social experiment have yet to be published, I imagine such a system to be similarly effective as the side-by-side bicycle and pedestrian lanes on the Brooklyn Bridge. While the bicyclists respect the boundary, countless pedestrians get so caught up in taking pictures of themselves or their companions that they regularly cross the line into the cycle lane, where they risk being knocked down by a bike. It seems to me that those in the phone lane would so frequently veer into the pedestrian lane as to render it ineffective. What do you think? Via Geek.com.

A Funeral for the "Like"

(Photos: Dadara)

This past weekend at Oude Kerk, the oldest church in Amsterdam, the Like was laid to rest. Mourners carried a coffin shaped like a Facebook Like button to the church and marked its passing in a ceremony led by Eddy Reefhuis.

Why? It's a symbolic rejection of what is sometimes called "hashtag activism" or "clicktivism"--substituting online actions for offline activity. The organizers of the funeral reject the notion that clicking on a Like button constitutes doing anything productive. Here's their manifesto, which is an interesting read:

Not too long ago, this development led to a miraculous occurrence. A new technology turned the act of Liking into a commodity, hence into a symbolic totem and a new belief, at a time when faith in religion and our monetary system is crumbling.

At first these "Likes" seemed innocent. A gift bestowed upon us unconditionally and in overabundance. Sometimes the Likes would pile up like presents under a Christmas tree. But soon we started craving for more and eventually the "Like" became the opium of the masses. And now society has forgotten the real act of Liking. [...]

And instead of taking action to make change happen, our activism has been reduced and confined to the square inches of our computer screen activism has become clicktivism. We express our dislike of what is happening in the real world with a Like.

We as a society need to focus on real actions and intentions, rather than the symbolic reward bestowed on things by a mouse click. We must never forget that the real reward of Liking lies amongst ourselves and inside our communities.

Rare And Utterly Charming Photos Of Audrey Hepburn

There’s a reason Audrey Hepburn was so well received as an actress when she was introduced to moviegoing audiences in Roman Holiday- she was elegant, charming and beautiful, yet somehow still retained an air of approachability.

Audrey took Hollywood by storm when she began her big screen career in 1954, and unlike many movie stars she was just as well liked by those she met in real life as she was by audiences around the world.

Best Movies by Farr has put together a wonderful collection of photos featuring Audrey Hepburn at her finest, as well as a mini biography about the beloved star, so fans can fall in love with Audrey all over again.

Blockbuster Movies Recreated With Stock Footage

Classic movies often become classics because they feature scenes that stick with the viewer, scripts that really speak to the audience, and a mood that moviegoers find moving.

In an Earlier Script for Frozen, Elsa Was a Villain

(Image: Disney)

In the 1930s, Walt Disney tried to make a film adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Snow Queen," but never put it into production. It took his company 70 years to complete the project, which culminated in the hugely successful movie Frozen.

I have two young daughters, so it was inevitable that I would eventually watch Frozen. When I finally did, I was surprised to find that the main character is not Elsa, blonde-haired snow queen, but her sister Anna.

In a recent television special about the film, Disney's producers revealed another surprise about Elsa: in an earlier script, they had planned for her to be the main villain of the story. Kirsten Acuna writes for Business Insider:

Elsa's character looked completely different. She originally had light blue skin and short, spiky blue hair. She even had a coat made out of living weasels.

"Elsa was going to be the complete antagonist," says director and screenwriter Jennifer Lee in the book "The Art of Frozen." "They kept calling her the 'villain.' But there came a point where we said, 'We can't use that word anymore.' You care about someone who's been forces to hide who they are. Elsa's not a villain, she just makes some bad choices because she's in a very difficult situation."


(Video Link)

The filmmakers decided to change Elsa after writing her signature song "Let It Go":

"We knew in this moment that she would go through a transformation," said Lopez. "From repressed to letting her powers out ... trying to get away from society and be who she really was."

Photos of Puppies Underwater

In 2007, Seth Casteel photographed shelter dogs to help them find good homes. Since then, he's found his niche: dogs underwater. We've previously featured her series of dogs trying to catch balls underwater. More recently, he photographed puppies as they were dropped into pools. This was an opportunity for him to get some great shots. But, as he explained in an NPR interview, it was also an opportunity to teach dogs how to swim:

No. 1: swimming pool safety — super-duper important for all the listeners out there with their pets. So many people forget that our swimming pools, as much fun as they are, they are a danger, and they can be a danger to our children and to our fur children. And they will learn. I mean, a lot of these puppies I work with — for Underwater Puppies I worked with over 1,500 — all it took was just a few times, putting them in the water and teaching them where the exit is, and they figured it out.
