Imagine Peace Tower Coordinates: Imagine Peace Tower with lights on. The Tower consists of 15 searchlights with prisms that act as mirrors, reflecting the column of light vertically into the sky from a 10-metre wide wishing well.

Fallacy List 1. FAULTY CAUSE: (post hoc ergo propter hoc) mistakes correlation or association for causation, by assuming that because one thing follows another it was caused by the other. example: A black cat crossed Babbs' path yesterday and, sure enough, she was involved in an automobile accident later that same afternoon. example: The introduction of sex education courses at the high school level has resulted in increased promiscuity among teens. A recent study revealed that the number of reported cases of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) was significantly higher for high schools that offered courses in sex education than for high schools that did not.

The Best Science Fiction Books (According to Reddit) Recently, someone asked Reddit for a list of the best science fiction books of all time. Being a fan of sci-fi, and wanting to expand my own reading list, I thought it would be helpful to tally the results and preserve them here for future reference. I've also included selected quotes from the comments, as well as my own notes on the books I've already read.

Maple Bacon Chicken and Waffle Wings by Nick Chipman Last year I created Chicken and Waffle Wings — chicken wings that are breaded with actual waffles. It ended up being the most popular post of the entire year here on DudeFoods. The Top 10 Relationship Words That Arent Translatable Into English Here are my top ten words, compiled from online collections, to describe love, desire and relationships that have no real English translation, but that capture subtle realities that even we English speakers have felt once or twice. As I came across these words I’d have the occasional epiphany: “Oh yeah! That’s what I was feeling...” Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start. Oh yes, this is an exquisite word, compressing a thrilling and scary relationship moment.

I am getting sweatier. It needs to rain, to clear the air. BRIAN GRIFFIN DIES Seems Brian Griffin won't get a shot at a 3rd novel ... 'cause the martini-swigging, chick-bangin' family dog DIED on "Family Guy" last night. Brian -- who's been on the show for all 11 seasons -- was hit by a car in last night's episode ... and died from his injuries. Stewie tried to save his pal by going back in time and preventing the accident -- but he had JUUUST taken apart his time machine, and was unable to rebuild it before Brian croaked. Brian was replaced by a new dog, Vinnie -- voiced by "Sopranos" star Tony Sirico.
55 Celebrities Whose Real Names Will Surprise You You might not have ever heard of “Maurice Micklewhite,” “Olivia Jane Cockburn” or “Diane Hall” — but you’ve certainly heard of the actors who were born with these names. When the Hollywood system started, people commonly took simplified versions of their names to make them easier for people to say. Doris Day is much simpler than “Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff” and Clayton Holmes Grissom picked “Clay Aiken” when signing up for American Idol — because it was just more memorable. Grandpa’s London Underground map While developing Ångström, the unit converter for the iPhone (check it out!), Alex Babaev and I have come up with the Ångström Style System. ÅSS (hey, why not) is a JSON-driven styling engine for Cocoa with Dropbox-synchronization and shake-to-refresh. It is a great way to separate the code of the app from its look and feel. It helped me try out different aspects of the color scheme, the fonts, the spacings and, most importantly the animations, without making Alex rebuild the app every time I wanted to change something.

It’s like, how do you transition from a nice, cozy dinner or a stimulating conversation about architecture to a ribald horizontal romp? Sometimes it’s as easy as sending a text message like “sex” on your way home from work or inviting him over to “watch a movie.” But at some point, we have all had to prod our sex people into taking those pants off. I went over to r/askreddit to see what other people do to get in bed with their sex friends and SOs. If you ever receive an emoji of caterpiller from me in a text message, u know what time it is.
