Awesome. This is just awesome. I approve.
"Do you recognize a superhero when you look one in the face? Do you think such men and women truly exist? If not, then look. And think again.
Indeed, there is a real subculture of genuine heroes, that bridge the gap between the fantastic and the practical. Anonymous and selfless, they choose every day, to make a difference in the world around them. Whether it be feeding the hungry, comforting the sick, or cleaning up their neighborhoods, they save real lives in very real ways. These are not “kooks in costumes,” as they may seem at first glance. They are, simply put, a radical response… to a radical problem.
So who are these modern day heroes? They are our neighbors, our friends, our family members. They are artists, musicians, athletes, and yes, politicians. Their actions serve as reminders that as most giving today has become reactive—digital and removed, temporarily soothing our guilt and feelings of helplessness—we have blinded ourselves to simple principles and practice of compassion and goodwill."

This guy, and his band of heroes, are pretty cool. I wonder how many cities they have counterparts in. Rock on guys, keeep up the good, but insane, work!
"Batman. Spiderman. The Green Hornet. And now, Phoenix Jones.
By day, he may be your average Joe. By night, however, one Seattle, Wash. man assumes a philanthropic persona to lend a helping, albeit gloved, hand.
Yes, he has a team.
With names like "Catastrophe," "Thunder 88" and even "No Name," they are a part of the Rain City Superhero Movement, a group of nine disguised defenders dedicated to ridding the city of crime." See the rest HERE
This is pretty cool, now figure out how to scale it to a higher output!
Half a century ago, the pile's inventor had said it will work forever, and so far it looks like he was right. Karpen's perpetual motion machine now sits secured right in the director's office. It has been called "the uniform-temperature thermoelectric pile," and the first prototype has been built in the 1950s. Although it should have stopped working decades ago, it didn't.
The scientists can't explain how the contraption, patented in 1922, works. The fact that still puzzles them is how a man of such a scientific stature such as Karpen's could have started building something "that crazy."" See the rest HERE
All I can say is... wow, just wow. Again, wow.
"In Wulingyuan, an area found in the Chinese province of Hunan, forestry officials have apparently taken it upon themselves to utilize it’s resemblance to the floating mountains of Pandora by holding “tours of Pandora” and even Avatar-themed weddings. Surely no one is foolish enough to take advantage of this…right?" See the rest HERE
I always figured since things are organized the way they are starting at an atomic level, that there would be other universes out there, and yet a larger structure beyond that.
"Just when the search for exoplanets looked like the undisputed fashionable field of study for 2010, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is stepping to the forefront of astronomy and cosmology. Last month, it was Oxford’s Roger Penrose claiming that he’d found evidence of a cyclical universe in patterns of concentric circles in the CMB, suggesting our universe is just one of many that have come before it (and will come after it). Now, another group of researchers are claiming the CMB contains evidence of other universes that exist concurrently (and outside of) our own.
The new evidence, put forth by a group of researchers at University College London, is based upon the model of “eternal inflation,” which is predicated on the idea that our universe is part of a larger and ever-expanding multiverse. Our universe is contained in a kind of cosmic bubble that exists alongside other universes contained in their own bubbles, and in these universes the rules of physics could be far different than in our own."

So the customer asks for some bacon, the KFC employee shits a brick and loses it.
"A worker at a Sydney Kentucky Fried Chicken has been suspended for going on a violent, curse-laden tirade after a customer asked for bacon.
The violent outburst happened at a Halal-friendly KFC in Punchbowl on December 26, allegedly after a customer became angry after being refused bacon on their burger.
The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying “we don’t have bacon” before the other begins yelling." See the rest HERE
Is this why it was in the upper 50's Friday? When it should have been below freezing?
"Global Warming Skeptic Predicts Brutal Winter, Warns “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” British meteorologist Piers Corbyn appeared on Fox and Friends to not only celebrate his accurate prediction of a bone-chillingly cold winter, but to also share his disgust with what he believes to be the “failed science” behind global warming. Despite it often being mentioned that the consensus in the scientific community is that global warming is undisputedly occurring, Corbyn proudly goes against the grain and advocates for his hypothesis of the coming global cooling."

This is over-stepping bounds. You can't have a 100w lightbulb?!? Absurd, I can't stand anything less!
"Here's a new poll question: Should California be 1) given back to the Spanish missionaries, or 2) just allowed to go dark?
For most of us, the first option -- give it back to the Spanish Jesuits -- is most appealing. After all, if the EU is ready to bail out Spain, why not tack on its erstwhile colony and pick up that tab, too?
However, Californians unwilling to wait for the results of our poll question have already decided: apagar la luz. Old reliable, the 100-watt light bulb -- safe, cheap, and bright enough to read, write, cook, shave, and put on your makeup by, will be gone January 1. " See the rest HERE
