2010 — Ducati brings us a Hypermotard. (Which BTW is a completely
silly made up word.) Is this picture for real? Or did they just grab
whatever looked kinda like…
On a smaller scale — here’s a running replica of the Honda 50.
(limited edition of course.) Still cute as heck.
For our youngest readers. (Surely we can build one of these.) The
coolest rocking horse ever.
Broken bikes suck. Hanging around waiting for the sag-wagon is boring.
Just ask these guys.

A riptide of data flows through the live on-air coverage of most
sports today, Sandbox8 gives us a look behind the scenes at how
hundreds of volunteers and a couple of professionals put together the
stats coverage for a PGA event. Golf nutz — I’ll never understand ‘em.
A much more scenic use of imaging technology brings us pictures of

shortage makes routine care particularly difficult. One answer is to

Riba is cute and cuddly and can lift a 135 pound patient.
Regina is not cuddly and cute but can lift much heavier patients.
Up to 440 pounds.
A transformer bed that can eliminate the need to lift patients
altogether. (This one is hopeful.)
Another cute robot. This one leads the elderly in a series of exercises.
OTOH robots may save the adult entertainment industry. (Really?) SFW

How to get a photograph of a bat taking a drink from a pond. It’s hard.
I had nightmares about marauding bears last night. Maybe I’ll download
one of these sets of animal illustrations as desktop wallpaper.
Abstract surfaces and nice colors.
Or maybe I’ll just go straight to this pacman destroys your city
cartoon wallpaper. The artist describes it as cheerful chaos.
Remake/Remodel is Warren Ellis’ challenge to cartoonist to take an old
forgotten comic character and re-imagine them for the 21st century.
Recently he’s called out Black Orchid. Here are three fabulous entries.
SFW. (Click through to the forum thread at your own peril.)
happy bloody monday crew,
