Theo Jansen – Creatures

Watching this I got a WOW moment. Where I realized that this guy had made a simple computer, and a walking creature and melded them together. It is really amazing.

Tired of that BORING wallpaper on the computer?

I found a great site for wallpaper, free stuff is awesome, so the pay stuff must be untouchable!

They do nice stuff for your resolution settings, and even for your iPhone or other portables. I grew pretty tired of the Vista backgrounds available. So get a new view on your computer.

Catapult and Trebuchet – But flicking people instead of siege missiles

I love catapults and trebuchets, and have built small models, but these wickedly insane folks build siege engines to throw humans. Turn down the audio on the catapult video, and you will enjoy it more.

McKenzie – Age 11

Young Lady McKenzie at age 11 can fully field strip and re-assemble an AR-15 rifle in 53 seconds!
I’m happy to see the youth of our country learning usefull skills and able to do things many grownups couldn’t do!

No joking here she rocks, and I expect she knows how to use that rifle without a problem and has a bright future because this takes real discipline.
