Did you know that the wheel­ie was invent­ed by some guy on bicy­cle who
was try­ing to fright­en a horse? Okay it’s just a draw­ing but it’s a

OMG that’s fug­ly. Auto­topia cap­tion con­test. And the cap­tions are lame.

OMG that is *not* fug­ly. Swoon.


Objects of Design

There were eight win­ners in the elec­tolux design con­test. The only
three good ones are here. Le Petit Prince is charm­ing and plausible.
The dish­wash­er is cool­er than mine. (Dif­fi­cult to do.) Bonus dumb
trend chas­ing design included.

Lego and food. You might see lit­tle 2x2 brick short­bread cook­ies at
the Box­ing Day Par­ty this year.

Piz­za rules the world on Sat­ur­day nights. Now you can rule your pizza
with chop­per styled piz­za cut­ters. Real­ly. Click images for bigger.
That is a com­mand, not a request. (Atti­tude baby.)



Make a vac­u­um flu­o­res­cent dis­play clock. The work­man­ship on the model
for this DIY is enviable.

Ear­ly large tele­scopes and some of the images cap­tured through them.
The fact that this is a col­lec­tion of pic­tures with very little
expli­ca­tion lends mystery.



This one’s espe­cial­ly for myJim.  Kit Karter was a one-off com­ic about
a go kart daffy boy. Ignore the name in the link — the poster admits

The cov­er and an inside spread from the chil­dren’s book “Night Cars” I
agree with the poster about the spe­cial­ness of the illustrations.

Jorge Mas­caren­ha’s por­traits of girls. Haunt­ing. Some dis­turb­ing, some
inspir­ing. All uneasi­ly familiar.

Dan­board is a card­board ver­sion of the char­ac­ter Dan­bo. 365 (more or
less) pho­tographs of the card­board mas­cot doing com­mon and odd things.

Impos­si­ble cool. Cash.
