My car service place has started sending me junk mail.  They don't quite have it down perfectly yet.  This graphic is from the teaser.  The heading leads you to expect definitive advice about how often to change the oil in your car.  Surprise!  They "recommend following the manufacturer's service interval".  I wonder if they have any other "insider tips".

I have an insider tip: Make sure you have a wheel at each corner before driving off!

If your car is triangular, this still counts!

+Nick Alcock Actually I was casting Bernie as the Dark Horse, but I see the way I wrote it didn't come out right.  At first in '08, Hillary was the big favorite. It took a while before Obama was a Household word. I live in the deep south, he probably got more coverage in less conservative locales.

I noticed this regulator (Ray explained it is for water).  It is crying out for a new paint scheme that lets it appear as a praying mantis, a hammerhead shark, or an antlered deer.
If you are an artist, please post or send me your design, and it may end up on a street scene near you...   With a picture here!

Looks like the Ithorian from the bar scene in Star Wars.

BBC reports on a carefully-designed experiment to evaluate if dogs avoid people who they have seen be unhelpful to their owner.  This will come as little surprise to anyone familiar with dogs: dogs do avoid people who have behaved unhelpfully to their owner.  Neat experiment.
Refusing to help a dog's owner means you may get a four-legged, furry cold shoulder in return

Yes, and sometimes they will alert their owners to never before met people who they don't approve of.  My always friendly dog, (one of four) did this not too long ago.. I listen.

Jack Sexty, 25, from Bristol, bounced non-stop on a pogo stick for 10+ hours. Hopping 88,047 times, he broke the previous record of 75,005 bounces.
A man sets a new world record for the most consecutive bounces on a pogo stick.

The article says it took him 10 hours to accumulate his record-breaking 88,047 jumps, but there's a "related" article where he apparently finished a marathon on a pogo stick in "about 16 hours".

Was the marathon more jumps, but they weren't being counted by the Guinness folks? Or was the current effort made up of lots of tiny, fast jumps, and the marathon was a smaller number of bigger jumps?

Also, he's raising money for Alzheimer's research. That's all well and good, but perhaps he should be setting a bit aside for knee replacement surgery for himself.

This is a painting by R. H. van Rijn, better known by his first name, Rembrandt.  The version on the left is how it ended up looking (it's nearly 400 years old).  The version on the right is how it looked after restorers removed layers of filth and varnish. Rembrandt titled the painting after the event depicted, The company of Captain Frans Banning Cocq and Lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburch preparing to march out.

In the 1700's, the painting became known as the Night Watch. You can see the cleaned version today in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.  It's not a night scene at all!   That was just an artifact of the accumulated dirt of centuries!

Awesome architecture - when it is finally built.  This is a set of cross-towers planned for the banks of the revitalized Han river in Seoul, S. Korea.  I have walked the path of that river, and they are doing a great job of reviving it.  The towers will provide residential housing.

Tiny folding specs at the opticians!  Fold up into this cool tin.
The specs are so small, the side rails only reach halfway to my ears.
I did not buy a pair.   But I wanted to.   Because: specs in a tin!
