It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us, and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound reinvention. – Conan O’Brien
I just love the fact that they come up with stuff like this…
Very wicked little video of HD slo-mo surfing. The “underneath the waves” shot is spectacular.
My view on the way home tonight, past the 40+ car pileup on I71 South in Ohio, a few miles North of the State Route 36/37 exit.
Something about flash mobs just make me smile…
Interesting little video of the creator of the Post-It note being introduced to the EepyBird’s Sticky Note experiment video that made the rounds a few months back:
Very cool to get a reaction like that from someone who has probably seen just about everything done with his creation.

Harvey Korman is either one of those people you’ve never heard of or one of those people you won’t soon forget. The work that Tim Conway and Harvey did on the Carol Burnett show is classic television and some of the funniest moments I’ve witnessed when I was younger. There are times when a comedian will make me laugh or catch me off guard, but the Conway/Korman duo would consistantly bring tears to my young eyes with their banter. I consider The Dentist Sketch to be one of my all time favorites and was lucky enough to find a copy of it on YouTube. Watching Conway work is always entertaining, but the sight of Korman attempting to maintain takes it to another level.
At the age of 33, I don’t know that many of my peers even know who Harvey is, but I encourage anyone looking for a nice, solid laugh to go dig up some classic Carol Burnett and take in the work of a great comedic duo. The rest of the cast is far from a slouch, but the duo of Conway/Korman working together almost guaranteed laughs.
Not a huge fan of the group, but Weezer’s new video is a nice walk down YouTube Memory Lane for the last few years.
Interesting slot based wall shelving system. A little pricey, but very cool concept.
What could make a game of Missile Command more exciting? If you said playing it on a gigantic multi-touch screen, you’re probably right. Luckily for you, someone has gone to all the trouble so you won’t have to. A gentleman named Steve Mason has created a
