Listening to Coast2Coast and he's doing an interview with Art Bell in regards to the Hutchison Effect. Interesting ****.
Tesla was too advanced for his time.
Not sure whether this has been put up yet or not.
I see what you did there...
I can't wait to go see the aurora next month, it's going to be amazing!
The snapshot, above, of the Aurora Australis, was taken on May 24, 2010 from ISS as it overlooked the Southern Indian Ocean at an altitude of 350 km above the Earth.
According to NASA, this extraordinary image was taken during a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection ? huge spurts of gas threaded with magnetic field lines, ejected from the Sun over the course of several hours.
The chances of seeing Aurora Australis is related to the sunspot cycle and they are more common around the months of the equinoxes. The sunspot cycle repeats approximately every 11 years with the next storm due in 2012. source
Just going to quickly chip in with my two cents here. I had a look at Nferno's video on the Hutchison Effect and, wondering why I had never heard of it, decided to google it. It seems that it is very likely a hoax, the Wikipedia entry is sparse and most of the google results seem to be websites which Hutchison himself has set up. What's more it seems that some other Canadian bloke has come along and claimed that it was he who first discovered the effect and that it is caused by what he terms as 'nucleonic energy', now the Wikipedia entry for that states outright that many believe this energy to be based in psuedoscience. In my opinion if it was real then theoretical physicists would have been all over it by now trying to demonstrate it as real world evidence for their latest work into their respective 'theories of everything'.
If anybody has some info I don't have which proves this to be a real physical effect please correct me because it would be really awesome if this is really a newly discovered 'force'.

Here's John's site.
Apparently, from the interview he had with Art Bell, there is a lot of interest from high-end scientists. The U.S government had a contract with John for the last few years, which recently expired, for him to carry on with his research under U.S funding. According to John, there was a lot of progress made towards the Hutchison effect and applications for both military and commercial use. John is still under some kind of NDA in regards to exactly what they were working on, so he couldn't go into much detail.
But yeah, pseudoscience. The fact that he came on to Coast2Coast to chat about it, further pushes it into the tinfoil-hat category.
Edit: Wanted to add another awesome find.
Not sure if anybody has seen the video Watsky did? Well, he made a video of him rapping and it's gone crazy on Youtube:
Yeah, pretty good. 'Cept Mac Lethal got hold of the video and decided to totally smash his powerap. ****ing awesome:

Well, since there isn't a Littlebigplanet 2 thread (SHAME ON YOUS), I thought I'd drop this guy right here:
Some nice examples of long exposure photography: here.
Funny spin-off of the A-Team opening intro
I'm buying a new camera for the sole purpase of long exposure photography. It has always fascinated me, and my current camera (Nikon Coolpix L100) takes VERY decent pictures, but you cannot set the exposure time :( I want a digital single lens reflex camera next. Going to be good times then...
