Vanishing Head Illusion


Another example of how our eyes are easily deceived.

Girl Who Doesn’t Age - Video


As baffling as the curious case of Benjamin Button. She is now 16 years old. Should have started when one is 21 years old instead. Well, you can’t have everything.

Clay Shirky: How cellphones, Twitter, Facebook can make history on TED


Great talk. On the other hand, the same media can still hijack the internet, as with all the traffic the past few days on Michael Jackson.

Tour NYC With Mystery Tourist


Only focus on NYC, and way cheaper than Matt. I suspect that he is a resident as he has too many outfits for a tourist.

Now  I wish there are more such dances for all the major cities in the world.

On Pacman Social Network


UK Electrical Folding Plug


Very cool design. However, it’s still in design stage. Even then, unless you are in the following countries; UK, Ireland, Sri Lanka, Bahrain, UAE, Qatar, Yemen, Oman, Cyprus, Malta, Gibraltar, Botswana, Ghana, Hong Kong, Macau, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Mauritius, Iraq, Kuwait, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. A multi socket adaptor is still required for travelling.

On Tan Lines From Typical Summer Activities


Computer Programming a summer activity?

Iran - Please stop the violence

It has been a very disturbing weekend. Despite the censorship, we are getting lots of reports via the internet. Even the media like CNN and BBC are using them. Most disturbing are not the new media like Twitter but from YouTube, where the death of some of the protesters are taken via the camera phone video and manages to bypass the internet restriction impose by the authorities .

Iran, Tehran: wounded girl dying in front of camera

Another Man Killed in Tehran

Whatever the government is trying to do to prevent the protest, it is unforgivable killing their own citizens using real bullets. My heart goes out to them.

Folding T-Shirt


This is an old one. Still, after watching it so many times I’ve still not been able to do it without help. Maybe I should put this video on my phone.

Climb Mt. Fuji from Yamanashi and get a certificate in any 4 languages


(via Japan Probe)

Get a certificate in one of the 4 languages (English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese), but only if you go from Yamanashi instead of Shizuoka. At 3776 metres (12388 ft), the mountain can be scaled without mountaineering equipment due to it’s gentle volcanic slope but only during the summer months (July and August).

Looks like a interesting challenge if you are planning to visit Japan.

LOL. Just watch the woman sign.
