    When enterprising skateboarding enthusiasts decide to build an indoor skate park they usually build it inside a similar pre-existing structure, like a warehouse or roller skating rink, but the House of Vans didn’t want to build just any old skate park.  They wanted something that looked crazy cool, had plenty of surfaces to ride and grind, and wasn't in danger of being sold out from underneath them, so when they found a space underneath London Waterloo station it was clearly meant to be.House of Vans-London is a "free creative space" and London's only indoor skatepark, and the…

    You’ve seen examples of how editing can turn a set of movie scenes into something completely different from what was originally intended. We've even heard stories of actors who were surprised by the finished product because what they understood of the movie when they delivered their lines was so different from what ended up in theaters. The same principle works for movie trailers, which already have a tendency to mislead by showing only the best parts -which may be the only good parts. We’re used to being misled about the quality of a film, but Cracked looks at a few cases of the…

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad!

    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

If you’re building such a plugin, widget or tool, then depending on your use cases you may need to delve into the REST API in some depth.

Most of the women shown in the photos working in the field and doing chores are apparently happily married, and the population is made up of both men and women, in equal proportion. It’s just that the majority of men work in the city during weekdays, so they’re left tending to their homes and crops.Read More

They’ve named the super-fluffy creature ‘Shaun’, after popular cartoon character Shaun the Sheep from the British comedy series Wallace and Gromit. As it turns out, Shaun has never had his coat cut, and it is at least half-a-meter thick now. In fact he appears to have been on the run ever since he escaped the shearers at his former farm on Tasmania’s east coast, at least 25 miles away. It is estimated that Shaun has been wandering across the island for the past six years! Peter Hazel said…

    The Curious Diary of Mr Jam

  • E-commerce and the gay guys who bought a baby

    Mr Jam
    19 Aug 2014 | 11:42 pm
    The whole e-commerce thing is a brilliant development for guys like my son and myself, who HATE shopping with a passion. When we absolutely HAVE to make a physical journey to a store, we create a “search and rescue” plan to minimize time spent. 1) Locate supermarket. 2) Access chilled food aisles. 3) Liberate peanut butter milkshakes. 4) Return to base. Mission accomplished.   Of course, some people print grim warnings that as e-commerce spreads, couch potatoes like me will end up spending our WHOLE LIVES rotting on sofas in front of bad movies.  LIKE THAT’S A BAD THING!  Oh, believe…
  • Gender issues can be so confusing

    Mr Jam

    I WAS SO OUTRAGED when an American friend said that Asian males were kind of “girly” that I almost hit him with my shoulder bag. But instead I just gave him a cold stare and turned back to browsing Hello Kitty collectibles on eBay. In truth, Westerners have bizarre ideas about gender. A recent book said that the original British plan to get rid of Hitler was to TURN HIM INTO A WOMAN. Spymasters tried to get estrogen slipped into Adolf’s meals to make him “pliable and easy to handle”, according to a report sent to me by an alert friend. Pliable and easy to handle?

    So I get a news report from a young reporter. “A car was in collision with a bath,”, it tells me. Huh? So….  someone was driving a bath down a road?   No. She explains that the guy in the bath claimed that the car drove through the wall of his house (this happened in the US city of Oklahoma).  But she says decided to write that the car and the bath were in collision to “try to be fair and impartial”.   “Good thinking,” I told her. “Life is strange. An investigation might conclude that the car was innocently parked by the kerb when a house came roaring down the road and…

I said YES PLEASE, paid him a large amount of money, AND my wife gave him a tip afterwards. No, it’s not bad parenting.

  • Scientists find atheists might not actually exist, not a joke

    I wrote an article on a science website and it went viral -- 100,000 people read it or shared it in a week--and numbers are still zooming upwards. Read it here  Metaphysical thought processes are more deeply wired than hitherto suspected WHILE MILITANT ATHEISTS like Richard Dawkins may be convinced God doesn’t exist, God, if he is around, may be amused to find that atheists might not exist.     Cognitive scientists are becoming increasingly aware that a metaphysical outlook may be so deeply ingrained in human thought processes that it cannot be expunged.     While this idea may…

    Of all the hoaxes that ever were, I've never wished so deeply that this was one of them.http://www.robinwilliams.com/I've wondered for a while now which celebrity I was sincerely attached to would pass away in my lifetime first. Philip Seymour Hoffman was halfway there. His acting was thoroughly impressive. I'd enjoyed his reemergence into my line of sight with The Hunger Games. Twister, in which he played the outlandish "Dusty" has always been one of my guilty pleasures. If I had a dime for every time I've watched that movie, I'd be retired, which would be slightly embarrassing, but it…

    On first look, these busts appear to be carved out of porcelain or perhaps fine white marble, but actually they are made of thousands of layers of paper glued together. With a single tug of his head, the sculpture's face stretches and distorts to reveal an accordion of paper layers. When returned to its resting state the sculpture reassumes its shape. This is the work of Beijing artist Li Hongbo, and his one-of-a-kind paper busts has been stunning audiences wherever they are displayed.

    In the Japanese city of Kameoka, which lies just over the western mountains of Kyoto city, an intriguing geological oddity is found. It’s a small subhexagonal-shaped stone of fine-grained muscovite mica hosted on a type of metamorphic rock called Hornfels. When cracked open, their internal cross-sections look like tiny golden-pink flowers. They are called “cherry blossom stones”, after the revered flower of Japan and one of the most recognized icons of the country. “These flower patterns weren’t always made of mica,” explains Science Alert. “They started their existence as a…
  • Kondyor Massif of Eastern Siberia

    Kaushik
    29 Aug 2014 | 9:40 am
    The Kondyor Massif is a perfectly circular geological formation in Eastern Siberia, Russia, roughly 600 km west-to-southwest of Okhotsk, or some 570 km south-east of Yakutsk. From space it looks like an impact crater or the caldera of an extinct volcano, but Kondyor Massif is neither. It is what geologists refer to as an “intrusion”. An intrusion forms when molten magma of igneous rock crystallizes below the surface of the earth, and is slowly pushed up through the earth’s mantle, a process that can take millions of years. As the rock slowly cools into a solid, the different parts of…
  • The Stilt Fishermen of Sri Lanka

    Stilt fishing is a method of fishing unique to the island country of Sri Lanka, located off the coast of India in the Indian Ocean. The fishermen sit on a cross bar called a petta tied to a vertical pole and driven into the sand a few meters offshore. From this high position, the fishermen casts his line, and waits until a fish comes along to be caught. Although the approach looks primitive and ancient, stilt fishing is actually a recent tradition. The practice is believed to have started during World War II when food shortages and overcrowded fishing spots prompted some clever men to try…

    28 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System is one of the largest pipeline systems in the world. It starts at Prudhoe Bay on the Alaskan North Slope and then winds it way south transecting the state for a distance of 1,287 km, until it arrives at the Marine Terminal at Valdez. The pipeline was built between 1974 and 1977 after the 1973 oil crisis caused a sharp rise in oil prices in the United States that made exploration of the Prudhoe Bay oil field economically feasible. To transport oil from Prudhoe Bay on the Arctic Ocean to the ice-free port of Valdez on the Gulf of Alaska, the pipeline had to…
