Flags of Mist at San Jose City Hall

Flags of Mist at San Jose City Hall

I had seen these flagpole-like structures before outside of San Jose City Hall, but I didn't know what they were for. Here's a photo I took of San Jose City Hall a while back.

It turns out they are flag poles of a sort.. only they fly flags of mist! So awesome.

Awesome robot hand

This is the most amazing robot hand I've seen. It can toss a cell phone up and catch it, and it can twiddle a pen!

Depeche Mode at the Hollywood Bowl

DEPECHE MODE!

I just wrote a review of the Depeche Mode concert I went to over at Pop Wenches.

The Robocop of the 21st Century

That is the gist of my review of District 9 on Pop Wenches.

I can haz Bible?

There's no other way to introduce this: The LOLCat Bible. My favorite part is how there's at least one bit they changed... NIV Leviticus 18:22:

" 'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

LOLCat (LCV?) Leviticus 18:22:

U can has the secks wiff whover u luvs. Bein ghey is kk.

:)

I'm unfortunately not familiar enough with the Bible to find all that good stuff, but here's LCV Psalm 23:4

I iz in teh valli of dogz, fearin no pooch, bcz Ceiling Cat iz besied me rubbin' mah ears, an it maek me so kumfy.

(I assume you at least have a passing familiarity with the KJV version of Psalm 23.)

Also, some books are illustrated! See for instance Exodus 5.

Strangely enough, I actually found this via The Long Now Blog.

Mario that can't die

This is awesome.. It's a Mario that can't die! Based on a Java Mario clone, someone added A* pathfinding to Mario so that he always tries not to die, then let him try his best to follow the mouse cursor without dying. Really neat.

Oh, and here's the project page.

Awesome interactive street-side LED installation

I wish I were in Montreal so I could play with this!
