    This is a series of pictures created by Redditor nite4awk featuring real-life photographs with Calvin & Hobbs superimposed in. They're beautiful. I can still remember the first Calvin & Hobbes book I got -- it was 'Yukon Ho!' back in the early 90's. Man, those were the days.... / Continue →

    This is a fancy wooden NES controller coffee table built by the folks at the Bohemian Workbench (who previously built this one). It's made with a bunch of exotic woods, is Wii compatible, comes with a zapper, and costs $7,200. *coughing up blood* That's a lot of money. "Wai... / Continue →

    This is a series of worthwhile time-lapse videos of earth taken from aboard the International Space Station. I...still can't believe that thing's actually up there. The sun either. You can't even see the wires holding it up! "Tell me you're joking." Haha, it's fishing line... / Continue →

    This is a short video (WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN EVEN SHORTER -- skip to 1:30 for the good stuff to start) created from a series of HDR time-lapse photographs by Patryk Kizny called 'The Chapel'. The star of the film is, get this -- an old chapel. One that's falling apart in Pola... / Continue →
