The Videogame Car
By Adam on April 30, 2010
Anyone who has played a videogame with driving in it will appreciate this video. In it a scientifical test is run where two drivers attempt to drive a car with a third person camera mounted on the car. All the windows are blacked out so the drivers can only use the third person view.
As if it really needed to be said but…
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

By Adam on November 29, 2009
If you’re a computer hardware geek, you’re going to love this mod. In a nutshell, the guy needed to build a Mac computer for work purposes, disliked Macs, so he built himself a Mac Pro Hackintosh…housed in an Xbox case.
Watch and enjoy.

Trailer for Collapse
By Adam on November 18, 2009
Check out the trailer for Collapse, a documentary that pinpoints how we’re on a precarious precipice and it’s up to us whether we fall or stand. There’s a few things I love about this video:
- Amazing disintegrating fonts.
- It’s a a “horror documentary”.
- Michael Ruppert – he’s like a film noir superhero journalist.
- “It’s not that Bernie Madoff was a pyramid scheme, the whole economy is a pyramid scheme” [a great quote]

Music is Math
By Adam on August 28, 2009
You might not know it from reading this blog, but I’m very intrigued in the overlap of science and arts. While on the surface they seem to be completely unrelated, in practice logic and creativity tend combine together in both areas. In my mind, Einstein’s theories are artistic just like Picasso’s paintings are scientific. Neither are about randomly creating something out of intuition, nor are they solely focused on following an algorithm to success. […]

Amongst his complaints are that you can’t watch internet TV from the comfort of your couch […]

Family Guy + The Shawshank Redemption = WIN
By Adam on May 11, 2009

How Battlestar Galactica Will End
