Don’t Do Drugs

trippin on acidCheck out the full sized version of this pic on the left.  This psychedelic image moves with such fluidity that it might make you want to throw up lol.

I tried blowing the image up a little bit to maybe have a more dramatic effect but the smaller version is much better.  Gotta love the optical illusions.

Worlds Largest Nuke: The Tsar Bomba

tsar bombaFrom Wikipedia:

Tsar Bomba (Russian: Царь-бомба, literally “Emperor Bomb”) is the Western name for the largest, most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. Developed by the Soviet Union, the bomb of about 50 megatons was codenamed Ivan by its developers.

The picture on the top left shows the size in relation to other bombs.  Hiroshima is probably the most memorable one in the line up but as you can see it is TINY in relation to the Tsar Bomba.  Scary!

I also have a video of the Tsar Bomba being tested on October 30, 1961, in Novaya Zemlya — Novaya Zemlya is located in the North Western part of Russia.

I Found Your Diskette…

magnet on disk

Read the caption on this image… if you don’t understand the humor then you are not geeky enough and you need to upgrade your pocket protector with the latest Mega Protector 9000.

And the caption says:

Hello dear,

I found the disk you were so frantically looking for yesterday.

OK, OK…. I won’t leave you out, basically a diskette is made from a piece of plastic with iron oxide on it. Iron oxide is a ferromagnetic material which just means if you expose it to a magnetic field, it will stay permanently magnetized. And yes, i did say ferromagnetic. 🙂

So when you save something on a disk what happens is little particles of that iron oxide are magnetized to indicate if it represents a 1 or a 0. Binary!

This nice lady just put a magnet on her husband’s disk — which he had been frantically searching for — and most likely scrambled everything on that disk. Oops!
