NIH Designated Stupid

The NIH entrance to Bethesda Trolley Trail, a popular walking and biking path, is the NIH designated smoking area. The level of stupid here is only rivaled by the smokers themselves.

a glamorous gentrified enclave

Meanwhile, video games and social media will combine to create a world in which you unlock exciting advantages in real life by accruing followers and influence. Every major city will house a glamorous gentrified enclave to which only successful social brand identities (or “people” as they used to be known) with more than 300,000 followers will be permitted entry, and a load of cardboard boxes and dog shit on the outside for everybody else. From within the gated community, the sound of cocktail glasses and chuckling will ring out and everyone will feel terribly pleased with themselves until 12 August 2023, when the sun will drop out of the sky and fry billions to death. After which all media will seem kind of pointless. So we’ll just stop doing it. The end.

Before Jewelry Became Such a SCAM!

Forget Google Glass, Android Wear, Smartwatches or contact lenses that give you night vision. Instead let’s talk about the awesomeness that is this 17th century Chinese abacus ring. It’s wearable tech from the Qing Dynasty, perhaps the world’s oldest smart ring.

Measuring a mere 1.2 centimeter-long by 0.7 centimeter-wide, the miniature abacus is a fully functional counting tool, but it’s so tiny that using it requires an equally dainty tool, such as a pin, to manipulate the beads, which are each less than one millimeter long.

“However, this is no problem for this abacus’s primary user—the ancient Chinese lady, for she only needs to pick one from her many hairpins.”

oh my god ancient chinese ladies knew where it was at

How to make an animated GIF in 10 seconds

karmcity:

  • Download LICEcap.
  • Hit record.
  • Done.

A few days ago I attempted to convert an MP4 video to a usable GIF I could post in our knowledge base. Lots of manual layer massaging in Photoshop and two hours later, I got something half decent.

Then I discovered this LICEcap thing. It records a section of your screen and outputs directly to GIF. That’s it! It does that one thing really well.

Icing on the cake: it’s made by Justin Frankel, the creator of Winamp and Gnutella.
