    Ever wonder what a Marlin uses his bill for? Neat footage showing them spear hunting for dinner!

    p.s. best watched in full screen mode, and select the HD setting (stunning chase scenes! :shock: )

    I want one of these as a companion to
    advise me on how to be less human &
    more structured in my daily journey

    Just stumbled across this great Japanology episode focused around Yokai. Lots of stuff in here that I think we can all relate to in terms of our appreciation for Japanese Characters / Sofubi etc

    It was on this day in 1969 that Stanley Kubrick filmed NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left their Apollo 11 capsule and began their history-making walk on the moon. In light of [yet another] 'documentary' on the subject, I think it is fitting we salute this monumental achievement in human history. So raise you glasses of tang, and 'here's how!'

    Mandatory:


    And a 'happy anniversary' to all you conspiratorial nutters out there! :razz:

    Dude, everyone knows there is no moon. Humans are the only one's that see it cuz we were programmed to by aliens in history. Sometimes animals are even smarter that people...

    I was actually going to mention it in that thread, but the pain and idiocy of the whole banning fiasco (and what it subsequently did to the board) was too much to bring up to the forefront once more.

    Oh! I'm in the US and I've been getting pretty deep into certain British sitcoms for a while (I just finished Garth Marenghi and I'm currently watching Peep Show); I keep sharing clips and talking about this stuff but no one here seems to give a flying f*ck.

    Anyway, carry on, this is just the equivalent of child pointing when he sees a shiny penny.

    Awesome. I'll probably read that one straight through, in time. Thanks for the tip!

    ^I think it was about 10 years ago I used to listen to this talk radio station. On Saturday or Sunday nights in the middle of the night they used to let these punk rock kids come in and do a punk show for about four hours or however long they wanted to go. They where kind of geeky "intellectual"-type punks, probably in their early 20s. Anyway, the kind of patter they used to do between music sets sounded EXACTLY like the commentary on that Nautilus video. Except less scientific and more punk.

    Same problem. Threw away a shed full of rocks, half rotten wood etc when we moved ... saved it 'cuz "it looked like" whatever I was on about at the time. Cool to see a museum display of it though; thanks Grace!
