No homework in Finland. See this hat? Tis' my cat. SCORE 135 the creation of the internet SCORE 148 Hey, Let's Fix The Internet I'm not the oldest guy in the world, not by any stretch, but I do remember a time before the Internet. And I remember when it first showed up, full of promise and potential none of us understood. I remember when you needed to make your computer dial a number to access it, and I remember the Internet tying up phone lines, and I remember suddenly losing your Red Alert game if someone in your house tried to make a phone call. I remember it being so new that the majority of people didn't even have it; if you didn't have it set up yet, you would just go to your friend's house-- the one friend you knew who had it -- and you'd simply "play Internet" for a while. I remember Google not existing.

Legend of Zelda Treasure chest with sound! 1/4" Pine plywood. You can use whatever type of wood you want, but pine looks nice and is relatively cheap. You'll need enough wood to cut out the following pieces: Two 5.5" x 10.5" pieces One 8" x 10.5" base piece Two 8.5 x 5.5" pieces Five 2 7/16" x 11" slats Also you will need two 6 sided half a decagon pieces. This sounds confusing but I've included a template to cut these pieces out. Skellig Michael – Mysterious Monastery in the Atlantic Nine miles off the coast of County Kerry in the west of Ireland there are two small rocky islands peeking out of the Atlantic Ocean. The larger of the two, Skellig Michael, is home to something quite extraordinary – a 1400 year old monastery which only a handful of people get to see each year. As you approach the island there is little, seemingly, to notice. Yet closer inspection reveals the tell tale criss-cross of manmade paths. Who could possibly have wanted to live here – and when? It is thought that the monastery of Skellig Michael was founded at some point in the seventh century and monastic life persisted there for over 600 years.

The New Dollar Coin. « 3 Under 3 in Connecticut Just checked the email and I received a forward regarding the new dollar coin. Here is the email: Please help do this… refuse to accept these when they are handed back to you. How to build a Taser for free! Now this is going to be a fairly dangerous part, open up the camera and get the circuit out safely without getting shocked by the capacitor... (The capacitor in the camera is a large black cylinder thing, it is used for making flashes for the camera, but now we are going to use it to shock people!) First, pry open the camera's case apart with a flat-head screwdriver or just use your hands if you like, but you are more likely to get shocked by the capacitor. After you taken the camera's case off, discharge the capacitor with a insulated screw driver, and you may get a big loud spark, and after that, the capacitor is discharged... (Use a screwdriver you hate so much, because a fully charged capacitor will leave a scar on the metal part of the screwdriver!) Great!

18 Vintage Mugshots From The Twenties I recently stumbled onto these amazing mugshots of Australian inmates of all kinds. Whores, gangsters, fraudsters, and crooks of every kind circa 1920. The quality that these were restored to is nothing short of astounding, capturing every detail and quirk of each prisoner. Starting over: Coining a new dollar - tech - 01 April 2011 Exotic dancers and traditionalists may come to miss it, but the iconic US dollar bill is ripe for replacement - with a coin. Scrapping the paper dollar would do more than prevent a frustrating time at the vending machine. It would also be more cost-effective: US dollar notes drop out of circulation within around two years due to wear and tear, but coins last decades. Although dollar coins made of a copper alloy do circulate in the US, they are not widely used.

The First Zombie-Proof House Somehow, ritual drunk-conversation concerning team captains for the apocalypse has become a major part of the lives of 20-somethings. Having been matured in the Grandaddy-crowned masterpiece film (put “A.M. 180” on and forget that you have a job) 28 Days Later and the best-selling Zombie Survival Guide, we’re all a little too ready to deal with the 2012 zombie apocalypse of our dreams. “The Safe House,” designed by KWK Promes, starts to get eerily close to something I could work with, if say 200 bludgeoned members of the undead army came over to eat their way into borrowing some sugar. “The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security,” begins the designers’ website in the summary of the structure. Who wouldn’t feel safe in a concrete rectangle that folds in upon itself to become completely sealed? Even the windows are covered with a slab of concrete when the structure is on nap time.
