I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

Sit. Speak. Good Photon! Researchers have trapped a laser pulse inside a glass chamber --and released it again intact. Such command of light could lead to mind-boggling new technologies. Listen to this story via streaming audio, a downloadable file, or get help. March 27, 2002: Light can be hard to handle, yet humans have nearly mastered it: We can create light (turn on a flashlight) and destroy it (shine it on black asphalt). Right: Fiber optics. Yet until recently there was one thing we couldn't do with light: pause it. But now scientists have figured out how to do even that. Last year, physicists at Harvard University shined a laser beam into a glass cell filled with atomic vapors. The laser pulse was kilometers-long before it entered the cell, yet the pulse fit intact within the centimeters-wide chamber. Quantum mechanics describes the bizarre rules of light and matter on atomic scales. This improbable feat -- stopping light -- was accomplished by two teams. Does this seem familiar? Right: Supercomputer. More

Hunter S. Thompson Motivational Posters While drafting the recent guide outlining the real dangers associated with combining different types of alcohol , I got to thinking about one of the most prominent and outspoken substance-mixers of our time, the late Hunter S. Thompson. A man who graciously documented the uncharted depths of the binge unlike any other in history, HST provided us with nuggets of wisdom and encouragement all along the way. So instead of merely sharing a list of my favorite quotes from the author, I have placed them in their proper environment, the pervasive motivational poster.

While the Pandora algorithm is strong, and the Last.FM related artists tool is pretty useful, don’t fool yourself in to thinking that there aren’t other great ways to expose yourself to new music in the depths of cyberspace. Here are 7 alternatives to Pandora and Last.FM that will infuse your day with an uninterrupted stream of music that large record companies haven’t managed to squash under their thumbs yet. StumbleAudio StumbleAudio has a killer recommendation engine that works better for me than Pandora’s. Songza Songza uses a recommendation engine that runs for each ‘channel’, but unlike Pandora, channels are not tied to specific listeners and rather are community property.

High Five Escalator (Watch it larger on YouTube) | Subscribe to us on YouTube Produced by Charlie Todd and Matt Adams / music by Tyler Walker For our latest mission, Agent Lathan gave out 2,000 high fives by standing next to a subway escalator during the morning rush. Five additional agents spread out along the adjacent stairs, holding signs that prepared commuters for the upcoming high five fun. Enjoy the video first and then check out the mission report and photos below. Starring: Agent Lathan, as “Rob”Featuring: Agents Eppink, Lindquist, Small, Thomas, WimpyDigital Video: Agents Adams, WhinesDigital Photography: Agents Sokoler, Todd The subway station at 53rd Street and Lexington Avenue can be a nightmare in the morning. Packed escalators at 8:30 AM To the left of the escalators is a staircase. Everyone is generally in a pretty crappy mood when they’re making this transfer with a herd of other people at the crack of dawn. Our agents take to the stairs The view looking down “Show me some skin!” A wise choice!
Price Tag Fails Some of these might be innocent mistakes, but I imagine most of them are the result of bored workers. Drugs explained with animated GIFs by Alice in Wonderland Drugs explained with animated GIFs by Alice in Wonderland Some funny animated GIFs explaining drugs effects, thanks to Alice in Wonderland characters… ;) via Tribute to James Cameron's "The abyss" - How'd They Do That? Tribute to James Cameron's "The abyss" by sarampo Basics Although there are many ways of shooting water drops, and some are more professional and / or practical, this is how I've done it with my setup. It just requires patience, and it helps to have an external flash, because we'll be doing 1/200 shutter speed and f/13 aperture, and there aren't many natural light sources to accomplish that and still control where your lighting hits. Materials The before mentioned flash and remote trigger; A wired / wireless remote for the camera (almost a must for shooting water drops); As can be seen below, it will set you back around $5. The Seutp The final setup should look something like this: (Disclaimer: I've done all the shot in my kitchen, that for lack of tidiness :-P was not used for this tutorial. Placing the Camera When positioning the camera regarding the tray, you should try to get as low as possible without having the front or back of the tray to appear in the picture.
