thinglets: Second Wicked Cool Mindmelting Image of the Week

Okay... I know it's hard to believe, but the blue and green spirals in the picture above are actually the same color. I had to "eyedrop" them in a graphics program to believe it myself, but it's true. If you can't see the similarity at all, try looking at the very outskirts of the "blue" spiral and with less noise around it, you can start to see the blue look more green.

I don't know if it was the Phish concerts I went to last weekend, but the psychedelics are really getting me going this week.

thinglets: Tunnels Under Moscow

A really cool HDR picture series of some creepy looking tunnels under Moscow. The underground of major cities are etched with crazy labyrinths. The old Paris metro stations and some of the crazy stuff going on underneath Rome are legendary. These pics have some great lighting considering the environment and represent a setting best suited to a horror novel.

thinglets: Three Eggs Cost... 100 Billion Dollars

In a grand case of inflation in Zimbabwe going crazy over the past couple of years, the pic above is a clear example of how our childhood notions of just printing more money doesn't work too well. At what point does it just make sense to have 100 billion = 1 and start from scratch again?

I guess you can't put all of your eggs in one basket... well you could, but the basket costs 850 billion dollars. Where's a Dr. Evil voice when you need it?
