Some of you will want to tear your eyes out and put pokers in your ears after
seeing this. My apologies.

I think it's catchy and hilarious. My sense of taste goes right out the window
if something is funny enough.

It's time to play CHEESE or FONT!

You have to identify whether certain names are for a cheese or a font. Sounds
easy to some of us in the graphic design field, but trust me, it's
surprisingly tricky.

It's the day of "lerv", so perhaps it's worthwhile contemplating how a pair of
punk-rockers like stegosauruses manage to "get it on".

see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This

I don't know if many of you would have seen this odd little feature from
Book Depository.

You can watch people buying books live on a world map. It's strangely
enthralling.

light, age at vastly different rates. Intrigued by the seemingly impossible
situation, the narrators invite the audience into a lively chat on special
relativity concepts, such as time dilation and nonequivalent reference frames,
