    Ekranoplans are Russian “Ground Effect” planes, aircraft that rely primarily on the high pressure zone created underneath an aircraft flying very close to the ground, for lift, instead of from air flowing around it’s wings.

    It’s a very efficient, though impractical, means of flight, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it was the most stable launch platform for a space shuttle… But based on this pic, the Russians, at some point in the past, would apparently have disagreed vigorously with me…

    When World War II began, Oppenheimer became involved in the efforts to develop an atomic bomb, which were already taking up much of the time and facilities of the Radiation Laboratory at Berkeley. He was invited to take over work on neutron calculations, and in June 1942 General Leslie Groves appointed Oppenheimer as the scientific director of the Manhattan Project.

    Under Oppenheimer’s guidance, Los Alamos laboratories were constructed. There he was managing more than 3,000 people, as well as tackling theoretical and mechanical problems that arose.

    He is often referred to as the “father” of the atomic bomb.

    The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, as refracted through rain drops on the window of an automobile, which act as lenses. In optics, refraction occurs when light waves travel from a medium with a given refractive index to a medium with another, whereupon the wave’s phase velocity is altered, causing the wave to change direction; its wavelength increases or decreases but its frequency remains constant.

    Copy pasta from Popular mechanics. (They explain it better than i can)

    “Researchers at the University of Maryland have constructed a 30-ton sphere that spins at more than 90 mph to generate magnetic fields. The 10-ft.-dia. sphere is filled with 13.5 tons of liquid sodium to mimic the Earth’s liquid-iron center core. A 3.3-ft.- dia. stainless-steel sphere inside the larger one counterrotates to approximate the motion of the planet’s solid iron inner core. The action of Earth’s inner liquid produces a magnetic field that makes compasses work, deflects harmful cosmic rays and protects the planet from solar wind. The field reverses every couple of hundred thousand years. By using a model instead of a computer simulation, scientists hope to determine how these reversals occur and predict the next one.”

    Well it’s finally happened – a hotel in the planning stages that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Death Star from the Star Wars films. You’re probably expecting that this hotel will be built in Las Vegas or Dubai, but instead it is planned for Baku, capital of the Republic of Azerbaijan. This may attempt to increase Baku’s chances of hosting the 2016 Olympic Games.

    Five centuries after Inca priests sacrificed this boy and two other children on a peak called Cerro Llullaillaco in Argentina, archaeologists found them frozen to near perfection, accompanied by breathtaking artifacts and textiles.

    Richly wrapped Inca child sacrifices were more than just gifts to the gods. They were ambassadors, sometimes volunteered by their families, sometimes taken from them. This boy, perhaps eight years old, wore a tunic big enough to grow into and carried extra sandals for his journey into the next world.

    Oh hello.

    As I’m sure you are aware, I have a couple other sites out on the interwebs. Please allow me to introduce you to a few of them that you might like.

    Adams Wallpaper
    At one time, I was all like “oh snap, I got a free url” and this is what came from that. It has pictures that might be suitable for your desktop.

    Choose Your own Adventures
    This site is awesome, but sadly my writing skills suck. I’m looking for someone to put content up on it.

    Crutch Of The Weak
    The most recent addition to the TWG, this site is going to receive most of my anti-religion comments and images, so that m[c]s isn’t flooded with them. Looking for authors for this site as well.

    Comic Covers
    The very first URL that I ever owned, it has about 70,000 comic book covers on it. I’m not 100% happy with the way the site is set up, but there it is.

    Comic Images
    Originally, this site was going to be just images of various comic book characters, but it’s somehow morphed into a quasi XXX comic books babes website. You can always upload your own comic book related images here.

    Dirty Limerick
    A different dirty limerick every day. Fun times.  <a href=http://www.dirtylimerick.com/feed/>You should subscribe to it’s rss feed.</a>

    Image Leech
    I honestly have no clue what I was thinking when I got this site, because it’s not as if there is a huge lack of image hosting sites out on the net, and 99% of those do it better. You can upload any image you want, and you’ll get a URL to use on your website.

    Internet Fight
    A half baked idea of a website that the m[c]s IRC channel constantly mocks. Bastards. Anyone can suggest a poll.

    Random Nude
    The second most popular website that I currently have a finger in. (hehe) Pictures of naked people. That’s it. Anyone can upload images.

    Secret Files & Origins
    Much like Image-leech, there are other sites out there that do this better, but this one is mine.

    Shirt Fight
    You see shirts pop up on m[c]s every now and then, and they’re from this site. Right now there’s only about 500 shirts, but after January 1st, there will be a couple thousand lined up, with a new shirt being posted every couple hours. After this date, you’ll only see a random one on m[c]s every now and then, so if you want to keep up on the latest and greatest t-shirt releases, go subscribe to the shirt-fight rss feed.

    Star Trek Book Club
    How in the fuck did I get this url? And why the fuck can’t I figure out how to make money off it?

    Star Wars Book Club
    Same question as above. You’d think that I would be able to figure it out, but I’m usually too drunk to care.

    Zoom Comics
    Comic book related wallpapers, one a day. Not sure what else I could do with this url, other then open my own comic book company 😉

    Ok, so that’s my stable of websites.  They’re all open for people to post on, if you can’t figure out how to do it from the site’s link, then send me an email or something.  Same goes if you have a suggestion for one of the sites.

    An animated image of a tablet press, a mechanical device that compresses powder into tablets of uniform size and weight. To form a tablet, the granulated material must be metered into a cavity formed by two punches and a die, and then the punches must be pressed together with great force to fuse the material together.

    Every time someone sees a picture of this car they don’t know what to say and end up asking to see more pictures. So here they are for everyone to enjoy! The car was actually done in sharpie markers on the paint and then finished with a clear coat for protection. It took about 2 weeks total. Prestige (Lamborghini Miami) definitely shocked a lot of people when this car was first seen in California during the Concorso Italiano/Pebble Beach week. It attracted attention good and unfortunately bad everywhere it went.

    Bearded Vulture

    The Bearded Vulture or Lammergeier (Gypaetus barbatus), is an Old World vulture, the only member of the genus Gypaetus. It breeds on crags in high mountains in southern Europe, Africa, India and Tibet, laying one or two eggs in mid-winter which hatch at the beginning of spring. The Lammergeier has been successfully re-introduced into the Alps, but is still considered threatened in Europe, although it is rated Least Concern overall.

    I was heading over to my sister’s house and someone had stuck these on every lamp post for a good 10 blocks. I took a few pictures, but the sun was setting, so I only got the one that didn’t turn out backlit and unreadable.
