Greetings from across the pond

A Geek Valentine


Earlier this week, a college basketball player made an 85-foot game-winning shot with a fraction of a second left in the game. The next day, the local news station challenged him to do it again... and he did. The game-winning video, the news video, and the full report.

The Baby Name Wizard's Name Voyager is a java applet which shows the rise and fall of popularity of baby names in America over time.

Some exclusive pics of Vogons from the upcoming Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie:


Their Circular Life

Dog Years is an award-winning film which was shot sequentially and unedited on a single, three and a half minute cartridge of Super 8mm film. Here's a direct link to the short film.

This multiplayer online Pictionary-like game has been around for a while, but I've never seen any linkage to it - I just did a google search one day because I was in the mood for Pictionary, and figured it had to be out there.. It's surprisingly good - If you know it, roll eyes and ignore me. It's iSketch.

I love skydiving, and I've collected many of these, but this is my current favorite thrill video. It's only 1.39 MB, so even if you're using a rotary phone to connect to the internet, it's worth it. (If, sometime in the future, the link dies, it's because I had a bandwidth crisis - here's another link to the same video, but with pop-ups and ads and such.)

That sky diving clip is amazing!!!

The skydiving bloke is a nutter!

The Circlar life one is a good idea - I reckon Bungers should turn his occasional series 'Images From My Car Window' into one of those. ;)
