Talk Like a Pirate Day

Wednesday marks “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” an observance that has been recognized on all seven continents and beyond. It inspires dress and behavior — of the Long John Silver variety — in seedy bars, staid workplaces and even the International Space Station. It has fueled fundraisers, been the topic for a New York Times crossword puzzle and mentioned on various game shows.

It was an idea born in 1995 on an Albany, Oregon, YMCA racquetball court. Baur, 54, and his friend Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers, 46, began unleashing insults at one another, as pirates might.

“We just grew up in a time and place where we saw the wrong movies, read the wrong books,” Baur said from his current home in St. Croix, Virgin Islands. Putting their deep-thinking noggins together, the two decided the world needed in on this, too.

Today’s Dot Com’s are Clueless

Another arrogant website begins the suicide mission. I’ll be honest – I don’t understand reddit – but I understand it a bit more than pinterest. However, the value of either of these services is questionable to me. I had begun sharing links on reddit, but I am greeted with a captcha to solve everytime. Since I am saving to several sites every-time I add an article, that’s just a pain. Next I may publish several articles in one setting – pinterest doesnt like that and after the first article ip wants me to wait an hour. And even longer after the second. Now I havent posted anything in two days – yet it says I’ve posted too many links recently! Now – maybe I have this all wrong, but isnt that the entire purpose of reddit? People post links and information so that others can comment and discuss? I am likely to pull the reddit sharing button from my websites as it currently seems absolutely useless . I most definitely am going to stop trying to post links to new content if I am met with these road blocks every-time. What are they thinking? And its not just reddit – today’s dot coms seem completely mindless and clueless. They are started with large reserves of other people’s money and the developer quickly either leaves or becomes so arrogant, no one wants to use the site. I dont see good things on the horizon for reddit. Btw – this sort of thing is finally catching up with paypal – look for an article on that soon with comments from the new president of Paypal.

A Book That Shows Every Color Imaginable

Regardless if you are a designer or not, having all the existing colors bound in your bookshelf would look quite impressive. A New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach presented a 8 x 8 x 8-inch cube book, that contains the complete RGB color scheme page by page.

The binding of the cube was designed by the author herself in collaboration with Daniel E. Kelm. The book with the digital offset prints and an airbrushed cloth cover makes a beautiful 3D reference of the whole pallet of colors in existence.

Frozen Smoke – Solid Air – Aerogel Brick

Aerogel is nicknamed ‘frozen smoke’ or ‘solid air’, due to the fact that it is composed of 99.98% air by volume. Aerogels are a diverse class of amazing materials with properties unlike anything else known. They exhibit the lowest thermal conductivity of any known solid, and are the lowest density structural materials ever developed.
