Yours (Something from the web’s social networks)- I got this list of translation errors years ago, but it was well worth a repost.
Science – We have all seen images of the solar system. However, it is unlikely that you have ever seen one to scale. On Christmas Day, the Astronomy Photo of the Day (APOD) put up a a video of some folks creating a scale model in the desert. I shared the video after the break. You even get to hear from some of the Apollo astronauts at the end.
Music – Want to lay down some beats? Check out the The HTML-909 Rhythm Composer! (Kudos to Never Enough Notes for sharing it on Facebook.)
Photo – You will likely need to zoom in a bit to see it but check out this red sprite captured by NASA from the ISS.
Yours (Something from the web’s social networks) – This week I went with a tweet from @ScienceChannel, they call it the doorway to Hell which has currently been open for 40 years!
Science – Light is the fastest thing in the universe. It travels about 100 times faster than electricity and can circle the globe in 0.1 seconds. I would be wonderful if electronics could use light. Scientist have developed a CMOS chip that can process both light and electricity.

Ludicrous – While a 19 year old hacking an airline to commit 150,000 dolars of fraud may not be ludicrous, the fact that “he hack was not highly sophisticated and was a result of a loophole in the airline’s computer system"
Ludicrous – There is no limit to what criminals do. Sometimes stupid, sometimes creative, always wrong, too often hurtful, and, in this case, simply strange. After realizing a child was in a car they stole, they dropped the kid off at school!
Thank you for checking out the first list of weekly links I have shared in a good while.
Here they are:
Ludicrous – While I am all for freedom of religion, wearing a spaghetti strainer helmet for you driver’s license photo, in my humble opinion, is ludicrous. Although I confess, she looks happy in the photo.
I had to mention this one as a bonus. It is just a really kewl looking Alien
Since it has been a while since I have published one of these and also the week of Thanksgiving here are a few links for the black shopping days. I originally heard of or found all of these and many more useful tips, hacks and tricks Lifehacker.
