Yesterday, the unofficially named "Lake FUBAR" (sometimes aka the "Bayou Corne Hole") was filmed swallowing a tree (ok, several trees)
It was filmed doing this last month (water does not flow like this in an inland body of water…)
It is suspected that the thing may somehow connect to the Gulf of Mexico (accounting for some of this tidal-like activity), along with other underground deposits of methane and other fun stuff…
Just browsing youtube when I came across this, the full-length film Trinity and Beyond:
Narrated by William Shatner; highly recommended in HD
Basically just a documentary about the history of nuclear weapon development up until around 1990. There is lots of very good stock footage of nuclear explosions, and some interesting information about the true "weapons of mass destruction".
I'm entirely sure how "legit" this is or if it will stay around on youtube for a while, but if you haven't seen this film, you should watch it.
It's been a while, so I figure I ought to post something…here is an interesting tour of the ISS
'tis quite a beautiful planet we inhabit…if only we could all get along
High winds + tall tree = "Where the fuck is the fire department?"
Just some videos of the launch
I was just informed (I had forgotten) that the STS-134 Space Shuttle launch is supposed to happen today. If you manage to catch this in the next 2 hours or so you can tune in and watch :) I will probably follow up with videos of the launch later on today
I was looking at the weather today and these interesting swirling weather patterns over Kansas/Nebraska stood out…freak hurricane over the midwest?. The formation persisted for several hours, and here are some full size radar loops:
(Right click on them and you should be able to view the full size)
I do not claim ownership of these images and they are likely property of the national weather service
