Surfin' Saturday

Howdy, all!

On a whim I've decided to share with y'all some funny and/or interesting stuff I found around the internet this week. A lot of people really liked the turtle I posted yesterday so I thought I'd share some other stuff too!

I think I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love Star Wars, so it was a given for me to share Señor Vader!

Do you know about the LHC project? LHC stands for the Large Hadron Collider, and it's one of the most interesting projects out there! The scientists working on the LHC are trying to isolate the particles that are responsible for starting our universe! What's even cooler is that they've found a way to turn the sounds of decaying particles into music! Check it out here.

This is kind of a long entry, so I'll put the rest behind a jump. Click "read more" to see the rest of this week's findings!

Here's a cool optical illusion... I bet you'll watch this a few times:



Here's a hilarious spoof on those Old Spice commercials... starring Morgan Freeman and GOD!!



This one speaks for itself.



And Allie from Hyperbole and a Half posted a new blog entry today! (If you don't know her blog, you should really check it out. It's awesome!)


And one more thing... Don't forget about the Perseid Meteor Shower this week! It's an annual event that usually happens around August 13th. Check out this link to get the most out of your meteor show!

Hope this entry made you smile! :D

Disclaimer:Y'all know how rare it is for me to post on a Saturday... I may try to make this into a regular thing if I can, but don't be upset if it's not there every weekend.

Are you kidding? I blog about the LHC often. Its one of the most exciting things ever to happen in the annuls of mankind. And as an author there is no shortgae of material to glean for inspiration.

That optical illusion is way cool! I'm not even sure I believe it (I think I watced it four or five times, and it still makes me wonder if it's just a trick...)

And yay for Señor Vader!

Your post DID make me smile, more than once :)
