Sharpie liquid pencil

Sharpie liquid pencil

Sharpie is to sell a "liquid pencil," a pen with erasable ink made from graphite that only becomes permanent after three days' exposure to the air. In the meantime, it may be rubbed out with a standard eraser. Sharpie, the, erm, sharpie company, has just reinvented the genre. Instead of making an erasable pen, it has made a non-erasable [...]

Herman Miller Embody Chair Review

Herman Miller Embody Chair Review

Is a chair's purpose merely to furnish a place for us to sit?

Draft of Declaration of Independence named subjects, not citizens

Draft of Declaration of Independence named subjects, not citizens

Hyperspectral images of a draft of the Declaration of Independence reveal that it originally used the word 'subjects' instead of 'citizens' at a critical juncture. After writing "our fellow subjects," author Thomas Jefferson scrubbed it out and replaced it with the familiar alternative. To the Library of Congress, whose Preservation Research [...]

The new “OK Go” video plays with the speed of time

OK Go strikes again. Their last video memorably featured a Rube Goldberg machine that filled a two-floor warehouse and took four minutes to complete its sequence of wonder and mayhem.

Secrets of the crystal skull

Secrets of the crystal skull

For decades, crystal skulls have been terrific fodder for science fiction, New Agers, and adventure novelists. (See the most recent Indiana Jones film as an example of the pop appeal of these artifacts.) Their finders or owners insist that they're pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts while most archaeologists consider them to be hoaxes, [...]

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia

All cameras aimed at a grinning Johnny Knoxville—flanked by a bluegrass band—outside the theater where "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" made its Los Angeles debut. The "Jackass" star served as the film's executive producer, which might lead one to assume it's the same sort of death-cheating, stunt comedy stuff for which [...]

BBC to project real-time election results on Big Ben’s tower

This is pretty cool: The BBC is going to project the real-time UK election results on the sides of Big Ben's tower, as a skinny bar-chart showing the progress of the three front running parties as individual lines, with the independent parties lumped into a combined bar.

NYC underground cow tunnels… They exist!

According to Edible Geography, historian Betty Fussel discovered that cattle traffic was so heavy in the 1870s that a tunnel was built to increase the flow to slaughterhouses along 12th Avenue and 34th Street. The underground passages were [...]

Mario and Luigi appear in Manchester

I knew these guys would eventually open a restaurant, but I always imagined it would be a joint venture, not next-door competing eateries. Found at Google Street View, ever the source for coincidence, not irony. This is in Manchester, [...]
