Watching the credit roll for Star Trek (2009) with my 12 year old.

Her: "Boom Operator?! That sounds like an awesome job!"

Hey Seattlites,

My friend Colin has been successfully bringing urban farming to Seattle, but he needs help to get to the next level. If you're into that sort of thing, check it out!
Help Seattle Urban Farm Company build greenhouses and infrastructure so we can create new jobs, reach new communities and grow more food!

I recommend watching the whole thing, but if you don't, at least check out the food coloring. So awesome!
 
The world needs more videos like this.

Yay! One thing I learned during my gamedev walkabout, was that I love developing in C#.

Snooki is "popular," doesn't mean people like her :). Same thing with Java methinks.

This may be the most adorable thing EVER.

The Nagasaki Bio Park zoo in Japan has an ingenious and incredibly cut way of moving large amounts of guinea pigs between enclosures. When the zoo staff need to move the guinea pigs from one play enclosure to the next, they extend what is possibly the most adorable suspension bridge in the world across the gap between them.

Graffiti artist Odeith wanted to make his street art stand out, so he decided to create murals that are also anamorphic illusions. By skewing is images in just the right way and painting "shadows" on the walls and ground, Odeith is able to create designs that look like 3D objects hovering in space.

This is the best gum EVAR. It's not even in the same category as other gum. It's so good, that I hid my love for this gum last year, for fear that you would BUY ALL OF MY GUM. But, it's back in print this year, so I'll be nice.

It stays soft and maintains its flavor for hours. I don't know how. I don't want to know how.

When I was a child, I had three life goals. One of them was a hedge maze in my backyard. These people are after my own heart.
Some people daring enough to enter the largest corn maze in the world were getting so lost they had to call 911 for help, police said.

Both are still possible. You're only 0x28 years old, plenty of time left :)
