Artist Uses His Trike To Write Chinese Calligraphy
Canadian artist Nicholas Hanna found a love for Chinese calligraphy on a visit to Beijing, particularly finding an inspiration in water calligraphy where people use a large brush to write text on the road using water. The text obviously does fade away quick, but it does leave behind a small and sweet message for people to see.
Inspired by this, Nicholas built his little machine, a system that is basically a flat bed trike with a computer mounted up front and two large water jugs placed in the rear. The computer generates the messages and uses a dot-matrix printer like mechanism to spray characters from Chinese poetry on the road, while Nicholas drives the trike.

A human skull dated to about 2,684 years ago with an "exceptionally preserved" human brain still inside of it was recently discovered in a waterlogged U.K. pit, according to a new Journal of Archaeological Science study.
The brain is the oldest known intact human brain from Europe and Asia, according to the authors, who also believe it's one of the best-preserved ancient brains in the world.
"The early Iron Age skull belonged to a man, probably in his thirties," lead author Sonia O'Connor told Discovery News. "Cause of death is rarely possible to determine in archaeological remains, but in this case, damage to the neck vertebrae is consistent with a hanging."

Surprisingly, there are two or three I am interested in.
I love the idea of storage in the stairs. I've always thought that the space under stairs was the biggest wasted area in a house, besides, I mean, the home gym.

I agree Joe. That's a marvel of interior architectural engineering.
In many cultures, a tan doesn't imply health and leisure, as it often does in Western advertising.
This is my belief, too.
It's good to see a culture that is not self-conscious about wearing such gear, just as there was a time when wearing a wide-brimmed hat for sun protection, did the same here.
The stair drawers are pure genius.
And I would buy the glass toaster. Love the design!
I liked them at first and then thought, uh, I could break my neck if one of those wasn't completely shut.
I liked the glass toaster. On the silly side, but rather good looking.
There were one or two others. I've forgotten already.
I stopped at the big two lane drive thru for a large order of fries the other night.
they tried to park me.
I said gimme my fries or my money back. now...
they were hot and delicious.
Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, plunged far out into the periphery of anti-President Barack Obama conspiracy theories on Monday, pushing a particularly outrageous one as justification for a tax increase in the county.
Head told FOX34 that Lubbock's law enforcement needed extra tax dollars in order to be prepared for a full-scale uprising, which he said could be a byproduct of Obama's reelection. According to Head, the president is seeking to sign a variety of United Nations treaties that will effectively take precedent over domestic law.
“He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."
Head continued, delving deeper into his hypothesis and claiming that he was prepared to join the hypothetical resistance.
"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say, 'You're not coming in here,'" the judge said. "And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said, 'You gonna back me?' He said, 'Yeah, I'll back you.' Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."
So, there you have it. Head would have listeners believe that they must agree to increase Lubbock's property tax rate by 1.7 cents in the next fiscal year, or risk being forced to submit to a foreign occupying force invited into the nation by the president of the United States.
the not so funny thing is that he's serious.
and I worry about texas and finn when obama gets re-elected.
