I'll always been a "jack of all trades" guy, and I've never said no to trying out new projects. So a long time ago I was referred by someone by word of mouth that I could help design a logo. I had never done it or even tried. Regardless, I took a laptop, a 27" LCD, mouse keyboard, my pencils, paper pad, and a wifi hotspot.

Flagged Well The Earth Plate™ would have to maintain a constant accelleartion of 9.8m/s² So the equation you would look for (if the Earth Plate™ was 6000 years old) is: vf = (9.8 m/s2) * (1.8934x10^11s) Plugging all that into Wolfram (Because I'm a lazy bum) gives us: 1.86x10^12 meters per second...or 6190c, and we're still speeding up :D Thanks.

Brilliant Packaging For Invisible Clear Tape Makes the Box Look Empty​ Here's how all the Pixar movies are connected in one universe. I'm a huge fan of this theory. Ever since I saw the nascent version on Cracked's After Hours a couple years ago, I've been tickled by the idea of the Pixar movies somehow being linked together.
