!! OMG, a burning ring of fiiiiiire: Eclipse time-lapse video !!


West Coasters and people across Southeast Asia were treated to a ‘Ring of Fire’ eclipse yesterday afternoon (one plus to living in LA, at least). And while countless onlookers captured countless photos of the annular phenomenon, Cory Poole’s 700-photo strong time-lapse video chronicled the event in stunning detail, thanks to his Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope. (Uh, where can I get one of those?)

This map (click to enlarge) is part of dashing French graphic designer Vahram Muratyan‘s new book “Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities.” Like a quirky venn diagram of the the two city’s personalities, Muratyan’s colorful illustrations portray the differences and similarities between New York and Paris right down to our favorite office-party treats (cupcakes and macarons, respectively).

!! OMG, what desperation: Norwegian boy without his butter !!


Call us navel-gazing North Americans, but we had no idea there was a butter crisis happening in Norway right now.
Well thank goodness Norwegian celebrity & blogger (note the ampersand!) Tommy sets things straight. He puts forth this question to all the Americans making fun of the butter crisis: How would you feel if you woke up Christmas morning to find him in your kitchen stuffing his face with all the butter in your fridge?
Yes, keep that image in your mind.
