Cool interactive "map" of the development of Heavy Metal. Arguments as to how it could have been done better in the comment section.

Guess Her Muff
Posted by Max Webster in blogs & zines 9 years ago
Do you think you can guess how a babe keeps her muff based on her how she dresses? Does your co-worker's carpet match the drapes? Is that geeky girl in your class secretly a sex kitten who shaves herself bald?  
 
I think, in addition to the amateur porn aspect, what fascinates me about this is the dichotomy of the public image and pron image.  
 
Really NSFW if you click the links.
I will get right to the good stuff: for the entire month of February, 2009, I, Michael J. Nelson will eat nothing but bacon. Nothing, my friends, but bacon.  
 
Why? Because bacon is nature's finest and most nourishing food.  
 
Just to set the record straight, it's only called Canadian Bacon outside of Canada. We call Back Bacon or Peameal Bacon, and it rocks.
Q: What the fastest time that anyone has ever eaten a Quadruple Bypass Burger?  
 
A: Joey Chestnut devoured the Quadruple Bypass Burger in only 1 minute and 47 seconds!
Banana production around the world is eating away at our most precious treasure, Earth. The pesticides used in banana production are destroying the environment at a visibly rapid rate. Rainforests, and other natural treasures, are disappearing to make way for banana plantations. Furthermore, mass banana production creates an enormous amount of waste which is hardly ever disposed of in an environmentally sound way. These factors make large scale banana production a major contributor to the destruction of the worlds beauty, animal life, and environment.

ABSTRACT  
 
In this paper, I call for a serious investigation of the hypothesis that WTC 7 and the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fires, but through the use of pre-positioned cutter-charges. I consider the official FEMA, NIST, and 9-11 Commission reports that fires plus impact damage alone caused complete collapses of all three buildings. And I present evidence for the controlled-demolition hypothesis, which is suggested by the available data, testable and falsifiable, and yet has not been analyzed in any of the reports funded by the US government.

The Spiral
Posted by Max Webster in gadgets 12 years ago
The Spiral seems to be one of the most ambitious and secret projects in the history of Soviet aviation. Therefore, only 40 years later it became possible to disclose the whole truth of this aircraft...  
 
The launch aircraft would accelerate the whole system to a hypersonic speed of M=6 (about 1,800 metres per second), releasing the components at an altitude of 28-30 km. The launch aircraft would return to its launch base after completing the mission, and the booster, burning fluorine+hydrogen fuel, would propel the aerospaceplane to the orbit.  
The orbital aircraft would bring a payload of up to 10.3 tonnes to the circumpolar orbit of 130-150 km at the carrier offset of up to 750 km, if boosted by a launch aircraft with liquid hydrogen power plant, or 5 tonnes if the launch aircraft burnt kerosene.

Opera love for linkfilter

And you thought FF and SM were the only cool browsers.
Giant galaxies were not assembled in a day. Neither was this Hubble Space Telescope image of the face-on spiral galaxy Messier 101 (the Pinwheel Galaxy). It is the largest and most detailed photo of a spiral galaxy beyond the Milky Way that has ever been publicly released from Hubble. The portrait is actually composed from 51 individual Hubble exposures, in addition to elements from images from ground-based photos. The final composite image measures a whopping 16,000 by 12,000 pixels.
