Ummm... Other?

The horror of nature

First, i was doing some "research" on frog/rat relations for a comic review i'm working on, and i came across this.

Second, here's a Boing Boing article describing how in real life our wildlife would make short work of zombies, complete with multiple videos of animals being disgusting and/or ferocious.

Just thought i would share!

And You Thought It Was Difficult Reading an Analog Timepiece

Why the hell would anyone think this was a product that needed making? Was it getting too easy to tell the time??

The Kisai Quasar display camouflages the time behind a pulsating geometric pattern. The time is actually always visible to the trained eye, but is likely to remain hidden to the uninitiated. The display can be set to three different modes: Number Mode, which shows the time clearly; Pattern Mode, which hides the time behind a static pattern; Animation Mode, which makes the pattern pulsate in a zooming effect.

Oh, yeah. A constantly shifting pattern that pulses is a feature i've always wanted in a watch. That won't totally drive me nuts.

Andrew Sullivan had this as a "Mental Health Break" post, and i needed it so i watched all 3+ minutes.

I never really understood the appeal of tetherball, but i'm certainly not going to play against a bear.
