Anti Joke What are Antijokes? Anti Jokes (or Anti Humor) is a type of comedy in which the uses is set up to expect a typical joke setup however the joke ends with such anticlimax that it becomes funny in its own right. The lack of punchline is the punchline. We’ve just released huge update to the iOS app! Now, access all your favorite text and photo sites like Anti-Joke, DIYLOL! 3D , illusions etc.. Zydonia Beach Released onto the world at Christmas 2003, Zydonia Beach was an 'update' of the old Rororer Island series. It was created with the fantastic ArtGem paint package, over a period of about 6 months. The original size of the picture was a massive 1900*1400 pixels, so I've cut it down for web viewing.

Greektown Historic District History[edit] The area known today as Greektown was first settled in the 1830s by German immigrants, who created a primarily residential neighborhood in the area.[3] However, in the earliest years of the 20th century, most of the German residents began moving from the neighborhood into areas further from downtown.[3] As the Germans left the area, new Greek immigrants moved in, spurred by Theodore Gerasimos, the first documented Greek immigrant in Detroit.[3] The newly arrived Greeks established businesses in the neighborhood. By the 1920s, the area was becoming primarily commercial rather than residential, and the Greek residents began moving out; however, the restaurants, stores, and coffeehouses they established remained.[3] The next thirty years brought a melange of immigrants to the few residential spaces left in the neighborhood.

Soda Machine Hack Most modern vending machines have little computers inside. A tiny screen usually displays some information. Although relatively little known, pressing a certain combinations of buttons can control the settings.

Five iconic science images, and why they're wrong : SciencePunk Over the years, we’ve been blessed with innumerable breathtaking images from the pursuit of science – from the unimaginably huge Pillars of Creation to the endlessly tiny Mandelbrot Fractals. But some of these images have taken on an iconic status, instantly recognisable to schoolchildren and Republican presidential candidates alike. The problem is, a lot of these iconic science images are more icon than science. Here’s a few you might have seen before.

Did you disagree on some point I made ? I hope you didn't take my color sound research too literally . It is more of an art project and a brain research project not to be taken too literally . by mirlen101 Feb 25

I'm not sure anyone can control the internet at this point or in the future . They can control some of it but people will always be able to find ways around . Chaos before control so chaos always wins or at least is one step ahead ;-) There is more misinformation then true info on the internet for sure . Truth is somewhat in the eye of the beholder though ;-) I'm not sure if you can find the original pearler of a particular pearl , only the pearl>trees of individuals . I'm not sure why you would want to. Unless you thought that that pearler had more related info . Better then to just take the title and do a pearltree search for the subject and who has pearled that subject . It would give you everyone that has that pearl . But not the first one to have the pearl . by mirlen101 Feb 25

@mirlen101. Very interesting points you raise here. I think this is the strength of the interent as well as it's greatest weakness - the lack of scrutiny and control over information - it will be interesting to see in the coming decades what censorship policies governments will attempt to bring in place and how the people will react to it. By the way do you know how to tell who the original pearler of a pearl was/is.?? by spiritknowledge Feb 25

The colored music aspect was one main point of my research . I was hoping to get a general view of how people who experience this associate color and sound ( musical notes ) I have diagrams I made from years of research ( mine and others .) Not based on Synesthesia but on matching the audio spectrum with the color spectrum . It is a general alignment though . It can't be done to a perfect alignment because they are not totally the same , only similar . You may have noticed the unfinished work ( diagrams ) @ > by mirlen101 Feb 21

Yes I'm a conceptual thinker . I read between the lines to get to the heart of the issue . Always looking for the unbeaten path ;-) It's not really about where you get the info as much as what you get out of it ;-) The color sound research is partly about interconnection and also about how some people become geniuses by using different paths into the memory , mind . A lot of them through visual means . Like associating objects with numbers in math . Color with musical notes etc... by mirlen101 Feb 20

On the other hand reading an actual book is easier on the eyes so you can get more into it. Haven't tried a Kindle though ;-) by mirlen101 Feb 20

I use multiple sources to get the big picture . If I had to go back to depending on just books I think I would be deficient . The web enables quick instant access to important information that a book can't provide ( unless you live in a library ;-) which still is not up to date info . by mirlen101 Feb 20

@cybermyth I would suspect it is truer of women than men . Men are more visual learners .Women are more word orientated . Research suggests both women an men learn more by visual means though . I think one deciding factor also is when one chooses to read something online it is more likely to be untrue or inaccurate as apposed to a book which is more scrutinized . I find that most people choose the worst sources of information online . They tend to choose what they want to hear rather than what is true . A lot tend to gravitate towards political propaganda or religious slanted media . You can see this very clearly in the forwarded e-mails that is the norm . About 99% of which is propaganda or at least misguided info ( excluding spam of course ;-) by mirlen101 Feb 20

@cybermyth It is like a giant synapse , neural system . A mind map . The future of the web is more visual less word based. People learn visually more than any other method. by mirlen101 Feb 20

More like Voyeurs ;-) Or better yet mind sponges ;-) by mirlen101 Feb 19
