Awesomeness!  Being a definite child of this generation, I’d be proud to show this off in my home.

 

What’s this you say, your clothes would be better off if they weren’t strewn all over the floor, but you just don’t know how to maintain them airborne sans magical abilities? Fear not, we’ve finally found a hanger worthy of a true gadget geek in the retro styled 8-bit pointer you see above. There’s not an overwhelming amount of complexity to it — hell, even the one screw that holds the finger to the wall is permanently attached — but nothing communicates your tech credentials quite like a pixelated mouse cursor from yesteryear. Available now for $19.99 a piece plus shipping.

Had to share this one…not sure if I like the photo or the description better!

This picture was taken just before Hoverball Cat took off at supersonic speed. It sounded like a whistle and a scream and the ground caught fire.

Atlas V launch video captures a sonic boom in stunning clarity

NASA officially kicked off the Solar Dynamics Observatory mission back on February 11th, launching the SDO spacecraft — which will be keeping a close eye on the Sun for the next five years. An Atlas V rocket took the SDO spacecraft into orbit, and photographer Barbara Tomlinson was on the ground with her Casio EX-FH20 to capture it all in HD.

What she captured is pretty amazing: nearly two minutes into the launch, the Atlas V rocket kicks into high gear, and there’s a visible sonic boom which spreads out as ghostly circles in all directions.

Check it out in the video below. To really get the full effect, though, head on over to YouTube and see it in 720p.

I had to post this.  This guys spends his days just a few blocks down from my office here in downtown Denver shining shoes and hollering.  I’d be willing to be that if you’re a regular down here, you’ve been on the receiving end of some comment.  I have, and have been there when co-workers have.

Well, he’s finally Break.com-famous!:

The fact that this dude is broke, homeless and living on the street doesn’t keep him from making fun of everyone else.
