HOW IT WAS DONE: Using time-lapse photography, Journal Sentinel photographer Tom Lynn offers a day in the life of a game at Lambeau Field. Tom began by stationing a Canon EOS Mark II digital camera, mounted with a 16mm lens, atop the southwest corner of the stadium, encapsulating the entire bowl of the stadium with the field at its core. Powered by an external battery pack, the camera automatically fired every 20 seconds, shooting from 9:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., capturing the stadium as it filled with fans, as the game unfolded, and as the stadium emptied. The entire process captured 1,194 total images, which have been compressed into this two-minute video.

Flour Bomb

From Wikipedia:

The classic educational flour bomb demonstration shows the explosive power of flammable powders under the right circumstances. Given a large enough suspension of combustible flour or grain dust in the air, a significant explosion can occur. An example is the 1998 explosion of the DeBruce grain elevator in Wichita, Kansas, which killed 7 people. [1].

Almost any finely divided organic substance will produce an explosive mixture in an air suspension. For military use, so-called hyperbaric or thermobaric fuel-air bombs have been produced that work by initially creating a mist of jet fuel (kerosene) or diesel fuel, then igniting the mist. The resulting explosion not only destroys structures, but depletes the atmospheric oxygen in the immediate vicinity, as this type of bomb does not use an explosive that contains its own oxidizing agent. Hyperbaric bombs are designed to produce maximal overpressure, and hence structural damage; whereas thermobaric bombs are designed to produce a very high temperature in the zone of explosion/combustion.

Very fine flour is dangerous in air suspension, as it too can explode. This is a significant risk when milling grain to produce flour, so mills go to great lengths to remove sources of sparks. These include carefully sifting the grain before it is milled or ground to remove stones which could strike sparks from the millstones, and the use of magnets to remove metallic debris which can also strike sparks.

The 6 Most Misguided Christian Video Games

Another zany list from Cracked.com:

It’s always tricky to combine learning with fun, but especially difficult when it comes to learning about the bible. While Jack Thompson rants against video games for being “immoral” and “unacceptable” and “killing his family,” a few companies are trying to put the hand of God back on the controller.

Not surprisingly, we found that devout fundamentalists often make incredibly bad game designers. A little less expected is their muddling of the message of the Bible. We take a look through six of the most preposterous religious video games, evaluating them on sheer ridiculousness, as well as biblical coherence to answer the ultimate question: What would Jesus play?
