Little Bottles

I must admit some guilt in this scenario, but the upstairs bathroom our three teenage daughters use is even worse! This Twaggie was illustrated by Dave Collier from a Tweet by 1BigMick. See a new illustrated Tweet every day at Twaggies! Link

Lincoln on Mars

Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech

I've been waiting for NASA's rover Curiosity to land safely so I can tell you that we now have Lincoln on Mars. Yes, Abraham Lincoln on the Red Planet.

The penny, a 1909 "VDB" penny, is used as a calibration target for the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI) instrument, which is to be used to take extreme close-ups of rocks and soil. The penny, provided by MAHLI's principal investigator Ken Edgettt, is a nod to geologists' tradition to place a coin as a size reference in close-up photos of rocks.

Besides the penny, the MAHLI calibration target includes color chips, a metric bar graphic, and a stair-step pattern for depth calibration.

"This Guy Is the Bob Ross of Brick Laying."

We never see the mason's face. He moves smoothly from brick to brick, the trowel an extension of his body, his mind, his artist's soul. It's beautiful. But also tragic, as YouTube commenter Trumacron points out:

Just think of all the hard skilled hours that go to waste every time the Cool-aid Man shows up

Bacon Demon

Bacon is so om nom nomily good, but can it be the food of the devil? Check out these images of the Bacon Demon, presented in our new and very nifty Neatorama gallery (all in one page, without generating multiple pageviews, mind you!)

The first is via Obvious Winner (does anyone know the back story?), the next set is from Larissa Sayer of Cheeky Raven's Art Blog, who created her version of the Bacon Demon (complete with pickle horns) from 2.2 lb of bacon as a birthday gift.

The last set is from redditor Liktwo, who created the Bacon Skyrim Helmet.

6-Year-Old Gives 10 Reasons Not to Vote for Obama

(YouTube link)

Whether you agree or disagree with president Obama, his policies, or the Democratic party he represents, you have to admit that 6-year-old Isaac Anthony is sticking to the golden rule of political campaigns: Keep It Simple, Stupid (KISS). Of course, that would actually only apply if he understood all that he was saying. This video, posted four days ago, already has over 11K comments at YouTube! What do you think? Is this "neat," or is it "ama?"
