jiffier gifs through HTML5 Video Conversion. Fast, simple gif hosting without size limits. A gfy is a short, looped, soundless video moment that includes GIF as one of the available formats. The name stands for "GIF Format Yoker" (we pronounce it "jiffy"). And the purpose is to bridge the gap between gif and html5 video by providing both-- allowing users much faster delivery, and more playback options We built gfycat to solve a problem: gifs are awesome... but they suck. They are huge, slow, CPU burning, limited to the color space of 1987, they don't stream, and they can't be interacted with (pause, rewind, speed controls, scrubbing). But they are still awesome because:
Strawberry Honey Jam Recipe – Just 4 Natural Ingredients With No Sugar Or Pectin!!! I have had enough of Winter! Snow continues to fall almost every day and my Spring Fever is in full go!

CD3WD reference If I could keep only one reference source in a post-apocalyptic world, I know which one I would choose. Before I fill you in on my choice, I’ll go ahead and declare that I’m not planning or preparing for “the apocalypse” or teotwawki.

Air Force Survival Training Manual – Free Download Given that there are so many survival manuals out there, it’s hard to know which ones are worth having in your survival library. Well, if there’s one survival manual that I highly recommend it is the Air Force Survival Training manual. The Air Force Survival Training manual (specifically the AFR-64) is, in my opinion, the cream of the crop. In fact, many of the numerous commercial and military books and manuals are based off of this manual (much of which which is copied verbatim — both the words and text!). Household Cyclopedia - Useful household information past and present - LoveToKnow Household information is what this site is about and there are over 300 articles here. The genesis of this site was a book published in 1881 called the Household Cyclopedia of General Information. Many of the articles are from that book and are fascinating from a historical perspective and for research purposes.
Are Weapons and Suits of Armor the Future of MMA? If you had told me five years ago that I would be saying I wanted to learn how to fight with weapons, I would have laughed at you. But, recently, I’ve found myself drawn to the idea. Maybe during the last couple decades of MMA my taste changed, or maybe it was the hours I’ve spent watching the civil unrest in Ukraine and Venezuela, but suddenly, I want to pick up a sword or a stick. Plus, what am I going to do when the Apocalypse comes and a roving gang of machete-wielding thugs arrives at my mountain camp to take my food away? Pull guard? Last week, Australian company Unified Weapons Master (UWM) unveiled their prototype of a body armor suit so technologically advanced they claim it will be a game-changer in the world of combat sports.
Elec-Trak The GE Elec-Trak was the first commercially produced all-electric garden tractor, made mostly between 1969 and 1975. [ 1 ] Despite their limited production and availability, many Elec-Traks are still in use today, [ 2 ] and have a cult following among tractor and electric vehicle enthusiasts. [ 3 ] They are an archetypal or seminal design that has influenced all later electric tractors. Several models were produced, including: the E8M and ER8-36 (8 hp); the E10M (10 hp); the E12 and E12M (12 hp); the E12S and E15 (14 hp); the E16 (an upgraded version of the E15), and the E20 (16 hp). GE's claimed horsepower figures were somewhat hypothetical, as the 36 volt DC traction motors are not easily comparable to gasoline engines ; the table below includes "real" horsepower.

The absolute must-watch list of fundamental Anime Is there a true list of must-watch anime? Given the diversity and longevity of anime as a genre, it's a tough claim to make. That's probably why the guys at FrontRowCrew, hosts of the GeekNights podcast, are making it. At a full afternoon panel at Anime Boston Friday, Rym and Scott gave us their guide to landmark anime series and films that shaped and influenced the medium. These are the gold standard for their particular genres. The hosts professed an affection for shows that aired on the Sci-Fi channel as they grew up—shows that, like RoboTech and Akira, were among the first works of anime to find fans across the pond.
