This is a very tiny guitar-- It's about the size of a human blood cell and can be played with a laser, and is technically responsible for the highest note ever played on a musical instrument. Each of the strings is only about 100 atoms across.

Neon rainbows and mirrors in the world's narrowest commercial building.

Selfies, going out

Crude, astronomical symbols, 26 Proserpina

Before it was decided in the 1850s to number the asteroids/minor planets and use the number in a circle as the symbol (which fell out of favour as the numbers got larger), they were given symbols like the planets. There are a lot of good ones: 7 Iris is a rainbow with a star inside, 10 Hygeia a snake with a star on its head, 15 Eunomia a heart crowned with a star, 28 Bellona is a whip crossed over a spear. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astron

Petition Unicode to add all of the original/traditional iconic symbols for the minor planets and asteroids discovered in the early 1800s.

@erinbee when you are accosted by soft-spoken and Nordically polite Swedish Cenobites who want their cunningly-designed puzzle cube back, don't say you weren't warned. they're in the cartoon on the last page of the instruction sheet.

"vi har sådana sevärdheter att visa dig!"

Moral of this story: Perhaps people who swear at Ikea assembly are doing so to reach the state of enlightenment that opens them up to possession by the spirit of the Köttbulle goblin, who can actually line up errant pieces.

Normally Ikea stuff doesn't frustrate me. But this style box has tabs that are meant to click together. (The instructions included rare words: "Click! Click!") and the top of each panel had one tab with a slight hook to it, meant to line up and slide in. Which they did, until the last panel. I struggled with it, finally reaching a point where I became compelled to swear at the fucking thing. And in that moment, I stopped paying attention to what my hands were doing and it came together.

Feeling lucky to catch sunset from the mountain top.

always vaguely hilarious when you do something weird with text and html/css and the text is still selectable and copy/paste-able

Menstruation, superstition 

Not enough people recognize that Valentine is also the patron saint of beekeepers, so this February 14th why not send your loved ones a BOX OF BEES
