Soviet Spacecraft Pennants


Soviet lunar and planetary probes carried metallic pennants to be deposited on other planets. These were highly durable, titanium with thermoresistant polysiloxane enamels, capable of surviving intact even on the surface of Venus. Artistically interesting, they can provide clues to the identity of spacecraft in photographs or even the purpose of unpublicized missions. A few dozen of each type are minted, to be installed on spacecraft and handed out to a few VIPs and top scientists.

Consisting of 45 volumes the Bible is filled with illustrations by some of the greatest artists of all time and contains over 6000 engravings painstakingly compiled over a period of 30 years by Robert Bowyer, Royal portrait painter and publisher.

Half Life 2 Homemade Cookie Cutter


Neat but seems like too much work.

Yesterday I recieved my Collector’s edition box of halflife 2. I had expected something smaller and definitely better designed rather then just a tin-box with a dvd, t-shirt and a small book tossed in there. Anyhow, the first thing that came to mind was the fact that they had sent me a cookie-box and after getting such a strong feeling I simply couldn’t just let it go, something had to be done.

It doesn’t look like a dog to me though.

Here are some instructions for making a simple origami card holder in the shape of a dog.

Subtly Simpsons

If you love the Simpsons then you will love this page. If you don’t love the Simpsons then what the hell is wrong with you?

What follows is a list of lines from The Simpsons that we, your editors, have found to be particularly witty, often with their humor derived from subtleties of language, esoteric allusions, or just plain wit.

Ah, William Shatner, the slow link day savior.
