Who ever said that a frog's life was boring?

This lil' guy has more fun than I have ;)
Indonesian wildlife photographer Hendy Mp has captured absolutely amazing images of a tiny Reinwardt's tree frog riding atop a giant rhinoceros beetle, like a tiny cowboy upon his steed. Giddy-up! ...

This is now on my listen-list!
 
Almost every one who grew in a Chinese Household grew up with these heroes! So its kinda important in learning about Chinese culture. With this a HUGE gap would be bridged. 
Here’s a list of all the episodes, to make it easier for those of you just getting started with the podcast.

So... I read "The Thing" - and even though the words "children's books" are to be found in the description, I'll vouch for the sheer absurdity of the story and save the rest for a "weird me out" evening :)

It doesn't get more authentic than this. A huge tribute to Bowie from the space-man himself, Chris Hadfield.

For your info, if you ever are going out eating in Iceland, The Steakhouse (Steikhúsið) is recommended, 8 out of 8 votes.

That is, a group of eight went out eating and all of us very happy.

Full house of cards!

Yup, three of us (most probably different then the eight mentioned here) went for dinner there once, we were very happy afterwards. So the tally is up to 11.

Hope ye all had a happy St. Paddy's!

( yes, it's Paddy's : http://paddynotpatty.com/ )
Each and every year millions of Irish, Irish-ish and amateur alcoholics are needlessly distracted from their Holy Tradition of drinking themselves into a stupor in honour of Saint Patrick and the wee island he adopted as home. They spit-take their libations—a shameful waste; they wring their ...

Þetta er eitthvað sem +Dagur B. Eggertsson þarf að horfa á, því þetta lýsir að mörgu leyti það sem hann er að gera vitlaust sem borgarstjóri.

"An advanced city is not one where even the poor use cars, but rather one where even the rich use public transport," argues Enrique Peñalosa. In this spirited talk, the former mayor of Bogotá shares some of the tactics he used to change the transportation dynamic in the Colombian capital... and suggests ways to think about building smart cities of the future.

I just felt like sharing - it's that kind of day...

I have said it before, and I will say it again with no shame in my heart - if there was one program which was that killer-program that everyone should know and have, it would be +OneNote. No other program could even attemt to fit the shoes that OneNote wears. I used it throughout all of my studies (B.Sc. and M.Sc.)  and it's the one notetaking system I would not have wanted to be without.

Now, a handful of years later, they just become better and better. Cross-platform (I have it on my Android phone and tablet, my Macbook Pro and my Windows conputer) and if I had an iPad, I'd have it there too...

To the OneNote team - thank you so very very much :)
