As I’ve said, I’m already obscenely busy, so today’s feature is just some of my favorite sites I’ve found using StumbleUpon.
- A really helpful resource for the grammar/working of presenting math in text.
- Slide rules have a museum. That is awesome.
- This is fantastic. I’m a Tux.
- Interesting/useful physics documents.
- The Cloud Appreciation Society!
- The fact that I found a fantastic YouTube Poop through Stumble is hilarious.
What is it? It’s the sound of knowledge!
More specifically, it’s the sound of Wikipedia being edited. Tones play in real time, signifying the addition (bells) and subtraction (strings) of information to Wikipedia articles. The lower the tone, the larger the edit. There’s even a beautiful tone for new Wiki users registering.
What’s even cooler is the fact that the map displays which Wiki pages are being edited and allows you to click through to them if you find one particularly intriguing.
Seriously, this is really beautiful if you think about the fact that its arising out of a bunch of different people with a bunch of different information putting that information out there to share with others.
Very, very cool.
Yes, I’m about to promote Tumblr blogs on my own non-Tumblr blog. Because honestly I’m still trying to mentally recover from last semester and I’m busy with calc + work + trying not to implode, so DEAL WITH IT.
If you dig minimalist posters of pretty much everything cool, you’ll dig this guy’s Tumblr.
This is the guy who did those cauliflower interpretations of major news events I posted quite awhile back.
For the 0% of you who follow me for my (now rare) R posts.
Basically the internet condensed into a single Tumblr.
Jesus Markoving Christ is a generator by Josh Millard that takes words/phrases from the Bible and creates new phrases based on a Markov chain process.
(Yes, this is the same guy who did the Garkov generator I posted a few days back, but this is so much more entertaining).
Some of these are just…wow.
Someone should make a quiz: “Actual Bible Quote or Jesus Markoving Christ?”
I’m getting all my YouTubin’ out now because once classes start I won’t have time to do much else but study/work/revel in joy.*
Oh man. I’ve seen this before like AGES ago, but holy freaking crap.
BONBONBONBONS. The way he says it. I’m on the floor, oh my god.
Dude. This song and video.
It’s Rage Quit, so excessive cursing warning and all that. And it’s Nyan Cat, so excessive seizure-inducing flashing warning and all that as well.
I’m just gonna put this here. It’s actually a really catchy song; I listened to it on repeat for like two hours the other day.
*Who am I kidding, nothing can keep me off of the Tubes. Damn you, Al Gore. Damn you.
These. Are. Fantastic.
For any poor soul not familiar with the term “YouTube Poop”, a rough definition from KnowYourMeme describes it as, “[a] video that has been made with appropriated footage and collage editing techniques for the purpose of either annoying or entertaining viewers in the increasingly indifferent world of Youtube.”
These are two of the greatest Poops I’ve ever seen.
I was literally on the floor laughing at the Six Flags and the raving. And “BAAAABAAAAAR!”
Haha, sorry. I thought these were fantastic. This is why I want to study the internet.
It might just be the sleep deprivation, but both of these are just hilarious. Again, if excessive (yet hilarious) angry cursing offends you, do not watch.
