The Herkimer Battle Jitney.
“The finest non-lethal military vehicle ever made.”
Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-07-04) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.
And here are some links to other things to enjoy that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites in the column to your right:
Taste the happy!
Sonder. Keta. Be sure to watch and fullscreen the videos.
Firecracker facts and colorful package labels. My favorite fact: very old funny papers make the best casings. Something about the dryness and brittleness and fiber content.
PES’ famous fireworks animation.
The official names.
Makin’ fulgurites in an antipasto dish.
34-second Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda trailer.
Tiny flowers on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on an old penny. “You could do it in the kitchen.”
Map of the insidious invasion and takeover of America from within. It doesn’t show the Hawaiian Islands nor Alaska and the Aleutians but it might as well.
Stick around for the Compact of Free Association.
Space without the space.
Thunderstorm seen from space.
Tempest in a teapot.
Nosferatu in 4 minutes, with added sound.
Wiggle-GIF method stereo-ized classic monster shots.
Mathematical beauty of the universe.
The stupid, it burns.
Magical little airplane built to take off and land nearly like a helicopter. (Also you have to be the greatest pilot in the world.)
VW-juggling robot plan.
“Daddy is exercising his demons.” “I think you mean he is exorcising his demons.” “No.”
Abraham Lincoln’s goat-headed slippers.
Panoramic time-lapse videos of night sky.
I don’t know how to feel about this. It’s interesting, but, you know, kids!
Again, interesting, but I’m on edge the whole time because of the light poles and other things on the ground. He can go anywhere he wants to in the whole sky, and he’d rather show off like an adolescent who thinks nothing can kill him. Um. And stop hitting the house with your god-damn ball.
84. (I’ve skipped you ahead to the actual song.)
How we get electrical transformers.
The last hand putter.
/Rude/ Goldberg machine.
A chart of the NSA spy programs /that we know about/.
Smiling through times of suffering and suicidal depression.
“It being self-evident…”
How well do you know this quiz?
Bitchy Resting Face redux. And the proper term is Bitchy Resting Face, not Resting Bitchface; it’s funny they don’t know that.
Another thing people used to do before the internet.
Pet bird makes and applies its own feather extensions.
Middle-aged software engineer shreds on dulcimer.
Stay for the two ground-effect craft videos at the bottom.
And hooray for freedom.
