What is The Rescued Film Project?  
The Rescued Film Project is an online archive gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930's and late 1990's. Each image in our archive was recovered from found film from locations all over the world, and came to us in the form of undeveloped rolls of film. We have the capability to process film from all era's. Even film that has been degraded by heat, moisture, and age. Or is no longer manufactured.
Official site for the mobile game Ingress, my obsession for the past 2 years. An augmented reality game, Ingress is played by traveling to physical locations and interacting with the virtual objects found there. Warring factions struggle for control over territory and cooperate within factions to organize, strategize, and socialize. Resistance is obviously the good faction; the Enlightened are a bunch of thugs. Hit me up to connect in-game.

"There is no crusade against unhealthful food in our house. Some might argue that unhealthful food is all we let Sam eat. His breakfast eggs are mixed with heavy cream and served with bacon. A typical lunch is full-fat Greek yogurt mixed with coconut oil. Dinner is hot dogs, bacon, macadamia nuts and cheese. We figure that in an average week, Sam consumes a quart and a third of heavy cream, nearly a stick and a half of butter, 13 teaspoons of coconut oil, 20 slices of bacon and 9 eggs. Sam’s diet is just shy of 90 percent fat. That is twice the fat content of a McDonald’s Happy Meal and about 25 percent more than the most fat-laden phase of the Atkins diet. It puts Sam at risk of developing kidney stones if he doesn’t drink enough. It is constipating, so he has to take daily stool softeners. And it lacks so many essential nutrients that if Sam didn’t take a multivitamin and a calcium-magnesium supplement every day, his growth would be stunted, his hair and teeth would fall out and his bones would become as brittle as an 80-year-old’s.  
 
"Evelyn, Sam’s twin sister Beatrice and I don’t eat this way. But Sam has epilepsy, and the food he eats is controlling most of his seizures (he used to have as many as 130 a day). The diet, which drastically reduces the amount of carbohydrates he takes in, tricks his body into a starvation state in which it burns fat, and not carbs, for fuel. Remarkably, and for reasons that are still unclear, this process — called ketosis — has an antiepileptic effect. He has been eating this way for almost two years."  
 
A species of cricket has broken an unlikely world record: largest testicles in relation to body weight.  
 
The Tuberous bushcricket's testicles account for 14 percent of its body weight. To put that in perspective, the testicles of a man weighing 200 pounds (91 kilograms) with that ball-to-body ratio would weigh 28 pounds (12.7 kg).

I loves me some kook links...  
 
“My great-grandfather President Ike, who was also the Army general who led the Allied Forces to victory over Hitler, battled evil corrupt powers on Earth and took on some of the most challenging scenarios in history. As I grew up, I could sense that I was completing this battle that has ancient roots. When Hitler died and the Nazis lost power- the entities including those that were ET/Extraterrestrial did not. They continued to find hosts and create agreements with people who were a part of the races of the patriarch and Global Elite - who want to run things through fear tactics, control and the suppression of Sophia or the essence of the Divine Feminine.”  
"The Mustard Museum began when Barry Levenson found himself awash in grief after his beloved Red Sox lost the seventh game of the 1986 World Series. He went to an all-night grocery, roamed the aisles, and heard the voice coming from the mustards: "If you collect us, they will come." He did and they have."  
 
"A meltdown in the CDS market has potentially even wider ramifications nationwide than the subprime crisis. If bond insurance disappears or becomes too costly, lenders will become even more cautious about making loans, and this could impact everyone from mortgage-seekers to municipalities that need money to fix roads and build schools. "We're seeing players in all of those spaces being more circumspect about whose credit they're going to guarantee and what exactly the credit obligation is," said Ellen Marshall, partner at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips LLP."  
 
Yet another scary story from months ago that could impact markets in the near future, featuring all the banks that are buying the banks that are going out of business.

• all secret agreements between any government authorized agency, department, organization, or corporation concerning or with any extraterrestrial civilization or group are null and void;  
• all future agreements between government authorized agency, department, organization, or corporation concerning or with any extraterrestrial civilization or group not publicly disclosed and openly ratified are null and void;  
• all secret agreements involving corporations or groups acting independently of national governments or international organizations, and not disclosed to national governments and to the general public, are null and void.

Hasbro Sues Scrabulous
Posted by Fluffy in fun & games 9 years ago
Looking to cut down its main competition and most high profile copycat in the growing market for social gaming, Hasbro has sued the two Indian brothers behind the popular Web game Scrabulous, which has more than half a million regular users on the social network Facebook.
What is the shape of space? Is it finite or infinite? Is it connected, has it "edges", "holes" or "handles"? This cosmic mystery, which has puzzled cosmologists for more than two thousands years, has recently been enlightened by a breakthrough in a new field of research: cosmic topology.  
 
An international team involving researchers from France, the United States and Brazil recently filled a major gap in the field. They propose surprising universe models in which space, spherical yet much smaller than the observable universe, generates an optical illusion on a cosmic scale (topological lens effet).  
 
this screws with my head.
A Los Angeles judge sentenced two elderly women to life in prison without the possibility of parole Tuesday, saying greed was at the heart of their coldblooded, years-long scheme to murder homeless men for $2.8 million in life insurance money.

"Nicolas Lampert is an interdisciplinary artist and author based out of Milwaukee and Chicago. Primarily, he is best known for his collage art - the “machine-animal” series, the “meatscape” series and numerous images that address political and environmental issues.  
 
"Over the past 15 years, his collages have been presented in various formats including digital prints (from framed images to fourteen-foot tall images), 16mm animated films, outdoor murals, stencils, silk screens, posters, and gallery installations."  
 
The most powerful computer known is the brain, and now scientists have designed a machine just a few molecules large that mimics how the brain works.  
 
So far the device can simultaneously carry out 16 times more operations than a normal computer transistor. Researchers suggest the invention might eventually prove able to perform roughly 1,000 times more operations than a transistor.  
 
This machine could not only serve as the foundation of a powerful computer, but also serve as the controlling element of complex gadgets such as microscopic doctors or factories, scientists added.
