The game changing technology company Condition ONE is getting you as close to the front line of the Libyan Revolution as possible, without actually having to worry about ducking out of the way from stray bullets. This promo video is beyond epic and it really demonstrates how you easily you can pan through all the bloody happenings with a simple swoosh of your iPad. I for one am not an iPad owner, but whoa, this really is awesome and finally a legit reason to own a iPad. The demo starts out just like any news report, but quickly you are reminded just how close you can feel to the people of Libya with a simple touch of your finger.
Here is another addition of what your state is awesome at and what it sucks balls at. This edition focuses in on the environment. Once again my home state of New Jersey holds it down, not. Click on the images to enlarge to see all that states in detail.
It’s always a little frustrating when people say they want to own a home because in reality you never own a home. If the mortgage company doesn’t own it and you pay for it out right the gov’t still has a piece. Gov’t makes you pay for it, determines what you can do to it and how you have to do it. Gov’t also decides what you can do on your own property and in some cases like in this video even claim to own a piece of your property, well 3 ft in from the curb. As a homeowner this video is vexing because you really have no right to property. Life, liberty, happiness and a gov’t rental? Whether it’s this guy or the guy that has to fill out miles of paperwork and pay fees to install a new mailbox the red tape will continue to get longer because the ones who know it best make their livings within it.
Living in a third world country is a breeze compared to the harsh every day struggles and problems we are faced with. Honestly picking out lunch from a field of garbage is nothing to complain about next to these pains in the ass I have to deal with.
I forgot about my coffee at work and it went cold, so I reheated it but forgot about it again, now it is cold once more and in my opinion, undrinkable. FML.
Parking spaces too narrow for my SUV.
My local deli sliced my meat at a 1 rather than a ½ and now my sandwiches are too tall.
I payed $3.55 a gallon for gas, and then down the street saw it for $3.49 a gallon
McDonald’s only gave me 3 BBQ sauces for my 20 piece chicken nuggets so now I have to ration them.
The restaurant didn’t have coke so I had to get pepsi.
I really want a burger, but McDonalds is still serving breakfast.
I had too much food for lunch and now I’m tired
I can’t get a 3G signal at my desk, only Edge!
My laptop is over a year old, and the fan is kind of loud when I stream movies from Netflix.
I took such a long shower this morning that the hot water ran out
Here is a really moving video using Charlie Chaplin’s Speech from The Dictator, which surprisingly makes a lot more sense now then it did back in 1940 when the movie was made. It was made by an organization called Peop1e, a group with, a passion, a vision, a dream. You can visit their website here for more information.
What is going on in Japan is horrible, there is no doubt about that and we are not being dicks. But honestly in 2 months no one will give a crap about the people still without homes or food in Japan. People are dying every day and no one cares, it is just how it works sadly.
After posting photos of his face on Flickr, Noam Galai has now appeared in countless artworks without his permission. He’s honored by the free works, but upset by the ones that profit off his art. photography was stolen hundreds of times for years without his knowledge. This is his story, and it truly is amazing to see how something can spread so fast over night. I know 10 minutes is about 9 minutes too much for your attention span, but if you got the time check it out, it really is an amazing story.
13. Nuclear Holocaust
“One nuclear bomb can ruin your whole day.” It was true back in the late 1950s, and it’s just as true now. The world could end at any moment thanks to the countless nukes out there, just lying around. According to a 2010 Ploughshares Fund report, 22,000 active nuclear warheads are scattered around the globe. And that number doesn’t include smaller—and therefore more susceptible to theft—nuclear weapons like atomic artillery shells and bunker busters. In truth, we’re still exactly where we’ve been for the past 70 years: one international argument away from the end of the world.
12. Black Holes
Stars collapse on an almost daily basis. When a massive star collapses, it produces an immense gravitational pull along the way, drawing everything in its path—including light—toward its core, like a giant vacuum cleaner from which there’s no escape. While black holes sit at the center of most galaxies, including our own, the real danger comes from a discovery made in the year 2000. “We now have conclusive evidence,” physicist Michael Kaku told ABC News, “that there are wandering black holes—nomads, renegades—and right next to us in our own galaxy.” How long until one of these nomads bumps into the Earth? No one is sure, and it’s a big universe, but everyone agrees that it’s going to happen sooner or later.

On the left is San Diego, located in the United States. On the right is the densely populated border town of Tijuana, located in Mexico.
One clever person decided to intermix footage of the recent revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia of “Pale Blue Dot” to give an entirely different and immediate feeling to Carl Sagan’s classic narration. Very well done. We have featured Carl Sagan’s awesome narration before in those NASA videos, but if you don’t know who Carl Sagan is then google him and read about a genius.
