calzephyr: (Hello!)
I bought a three way budgie mirror this morning and I should have bought two, it was that big a hit! I tried to get a picture of them looking at it, but new mirror + camera was waaay too much stimulation for Jill! It's in Mox's cage for now. I also put the budgie greens in his cage. Man, five weeks to grow, two minutes for little beaks to decimate!

I think I need to go back and recolor mine, but this Build your own Superhero thingamajig is waaaaay too much fun and I can't be held responsible for lost sleep or time at work :-)

Fledchen, you can even pick a bat companion or bat wings :-)

It's weird how close some of them are, although, of course, they couldn't quite envision how different the future could be :-) Clickez vous!

EDIT: Check out the 1990s picturephones too!

I like how seamless the Flowers by Alice technology is. If only current voice concierges were like that.

I saw this on Slashdot this morning and it's too neat not to share. A company has developed a way of turning plastic back into the material they were made from.

http://environment.newscientist.com/channel/earth/dn12141-giant-microwave-turns-plastic-back-to-oil.html

Maybe our landfills will become a future source of energy! There is a video at the above URL that shows shredded tires being nuked back into carbon black and oil (do not try at home!). It would be so neat to have a home version, you could run your diesel car on garbage :-)

There is a company called GeoPlasma that is going to built a plant at a Florida landfill...they use arc welding technology to deal with garbage.

M&Ms has a fun Flash game called 50 Dark Movies, Hidden in a Painting. There are references to 50 movies hidden in the picture. Some of them are very bad visual puns...but it was fun all the same. Answers are circulating on the net as well. There were two that really stumped me that I had to look up.

Art meme

This seems like it's going around LJ (thanks [livejournal.com profile] taeha...well, you all know how I like doing sketches and stuff for friends and strangesr, so here it goes...I won't make people post this in their LJ if they don't want too though :-)


The first five people to respond to this post will get some form of art, by me. It will be about or tailored to those five lucky "victims."

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will agree with what I perceive as art and/or quality.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done before 7 days have passed. ("You have seven days...")

You have no clue what it's gonna be. It may be fic. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint or chainmaille-weave something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

Batacular!

Found by [livejournal.com profile] fledchen...a cool bat costume!

I could see making a bird costume from this too...I could get a blue hoodie, a white hat, a bunch of craft feathers...tada! Parakeet :-)

Since everyone is doing it :-) Some of them were incorrect, so I deleted them from the collage. It was surprisingly accurate, although I have no clue where some of them came from. For "Futurama", a picture of Leela with one boob popped up, so I deleted that...man!

Neat stuff

I found this website called Who Called Us?. I don't know how legit it is, but I didn't enter any personal details. I got a call just now where the Caller ID said "Florida" and no one was on the line. I jotted down the number and looked it up. Apparently I'm not the only person it called, whatever it was.
