    Probably should have started this years ago, but never mind.

    Instead of posting a whole new thread every time I find something so awesome I just have to share it, I'll post it here. Feel free to poop your own nuggets of joy in here too, just remember to wipe afterwards.

    There will be a mix of all sorts in here (hence the "general non-gaming category), but mainly things that made me laugh, and things that stunned me.


    I'll start with this post from Cake Wrecks entitled: "What we have here is a failure to communicate" along with the wonderful "Under Neat That" cake.



    To balance that out, have some incredible pictures from the sky

    I've built up a slight backlog of interesting stuff, so I'll probably be posting stuff over the next few days faster than I would normally.

    A lot of these links I found through digg, or the b3ta newsletter.

    26 amazing future projects of Dubai, with "The Cloud" being the craziest of the bunch.


    Classic videogames recreated in Lego


    Time lapse video of a busy intersection in Hanoi at night, with no traffic lights. Fascinating to watch the traffic flow, where you would expect nothing but chaos.


    Of course, it just wouldn't feel right without a cracked.com list, so here's the first of many: The 10 Most Terrifying Guides to Sex, including "Paying for Sex: The Gentlemen's Guide to Web Porn, Strip Clubs, Prostitutes & Escorts -- Without Humiliation, Job Loss, Bankruptcy, Infection, Bloodshed or Incarceration" and "A Hand in the Bush: The Fine Art of Vaginal Fisting".


    Some of the links I post in this thread may well be old, but :p

    The main reason I'm doing this is so that I can look back at the cool stuff I've found in years to come. No way I'll ever find but a tiny fraction of all the threads I've started, thanks to EG not letting you look through a list of your past threads.

    Plus it does make the forum that little bit tidier :)

    There must be all kinds of stuff left at Pripiat!

    I imagine most of the buildings and homes were evacuated quite suddenly so everything would look as if it had been abandoned just days ago...

    It's nice to know that, in this modern world, there are still abandoned cities to loot.

    There's a lot of photos on the internet by people who have been to abandoned towns and cities around Chernobyl. Well worth a look, and you can find a ton of them using Google.

    Incredible fountain. Some incredibly precise control of water there!


    Dog face paint


    Bending light "Refraction patterns made by light passing through various glass and transparent objects" - lensless photography, and some rather pretty results.

    WOW.

    I can understand why my friend decided to travel the world when we both left college, whereas I stayed here and played video games and read books.

    I have been thinking of joining up with a charity and hellping in developing countries. That could swing it...

    I'm not remotely envious of that job. Sounds like hell, and very little fun, frankly!

    When I was in Chicago one summer, they had all these pictures on a big display in millennium park in the middle of the city. Really big versions of them, you could walk down the middle of the park looking at them all, it was awesome. Great pics.

    They had them on display outside the Natural History Museum in London a few years back.

    My girlfriend's parents have a massive coffee table book full of them. I spent ages staring at every page in awe.

    Blu-Ray vs regular DVD - a video comparison. Trust me, just watch it.


    WANT!


    Polar Bear vs Husky (in pictures) - with a surprising ending!


    If websites came with warning labels - cracked.com, which along with the title of the article should be all the description you need.
