World’s Quietest Room, Anechoic Chamber In Minneapolis, Absorbs Sound

July 26th, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

world's quietest roomLooking for a unique way to cause insanity? Here’s the perfect solution: the world’s quietest room. The Anechoic Champer at Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis is the world’s quietest room.
“Your eyes don’t feel as comfortable in this room,” the creator, Steve Orfield correctly pointed out, adding that some visitors have had hallucinations during or after a spell in there. “You lose your touchstones.”

Small wonder, then, that even Orfield spends no more than a half-hour at a time in the 99.99 percent soundproof anechoic chamber, and no one has lasted in there for more than 45 minutes.

Click that link above for more info. Crazy shit…I’m definitely not interested in spending more than 30 seconds in there.

I Can’t Believe We Made It

June 14th, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

I can’t believe we made it…a video tribute to all those who made it through childhood when helmets weren’t mandatory, anti-bacterial sauce wasn’t applied multiple times a day, kids played outside, etc.

…I’m so glad I played outside as much as I did. I loved Intelivisiona and Atari…but that shit came second to my skateboard.

Sources Of mApple’s iPhone iNnovation

June 11th, 2013 | Category: Uncategorized

I hear a lot of people singing the praises of the almighty mApple iPhone being the industry innovator…inventing and implementing the best features and form-factors in our gadget crazy world.
Then I saw a short list in a comment section of an article that put a bunch of those ‘innovations’ to their actual innovators. Interesting shit:

iMessenger was stolen from BB (Blackberry), Notification bar from Palm, Touch screen phones from Palm, iPhone from Linksys, Thunderbolt technology from Intel, Magnetic charger for Laptops from Asian crockery, 30-pin power connector (charge iPhone/Pads/Pods) from Motorola, Apple TV from Microsoft Media Center, Apple logo from Genesis 3:6 Eve took a bite of an apple, Digital Camera from Kodak and Fuji, Current OS from Debian BSD, App store from Ubuntu, Tablet from DOS based Gridpad in 1989 and then SEVERAL tablets from Microsoft after that, MP3 player from Diamond RIO, Inductive charging from Palm and Nikola Tesla, First Laptop with handle from Data View from 1985, Infrared keyboard also from the Data View in 1985.

This argument has happened thousands of times and will continue to for who knows how long? Next time you want to claim that your favorite gadget maker is the ‘best’ and/or ‘most innovative’…I recommend checking history to make sure those claims are sound. Read more

Armless Drummer?

June 06th, 2013 | Category: Music,Uncategorized

Yep…an ‘armless’ drummer. Check out Cornel Hrisca-Munn doing a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Can’t Stop’:

What? More video proof that you CAN do it, you’re just too lazy to put in the work. Especially for those of you with full-length arms.
