browse a large list of inventions that we may well have been using today if things had been different – here’s a pic of an early motorcycle…
there’s steam-powered aeroplanes, jet-propelled paddle boats and analogue computers amongst the entries…it’s worth it for a laugh but bear in mind that a lot of this stuff was actually made.
I don’t think Last Exit to Springfield is an official site – but it don’t half look like it should be – in fact it makes Baan Liam look like a load of crud (which it probably is)
great site – and plenty of downloadable free goodies as well…
just need to find one for South Park now…hmm
If you like your science then this page will be of interest – it’s all about the things that scientists at present don’t understand and can’t explain…
learn about the placebo effect, dark matter, cold fusion and more here – although of course it’s described but not explained :-p
listen I know Mythbusters did experiments with similar things but this takes it a bit further…
gruesome pictures of stuff gradually being melted by the thing with a running commentary as well
is this the answer to our urban traffic woes? 😀 take a look at this MPEG video clip and if you want to build your own he tells you how to do it, what you need and gives you the software for the electronics HERE
I’ve gotta have one of these…:-))
what does 2 to the power of 100 really look like? this is something that Nathan has got on his site and I just thought I’d put it up here cos when you read it it’ll probably blow you away 😮
this site has all sort of statistics about the world updated in real time as you watch
have to admit – it’s a bit of an eye-opener…
learn how to write your name in Chinese
characters….or other words as well…this site has got a pretty
comprehensive listing of names and words – http://www.chinese-symbols.com/
in case you’re wondering – that’s Liam in Chinese :-p
structures made outa pennies
– i think it’s an American site so pennies mean cents – or do they also call them pennies?
same difference anyway – go and have a look…
just thought I’d tell ya all a little about myself before I get started…that’s me in the picture with my son Bill. This was taken a few years ago now when we still lived in Thailand…
We live in Edinburgh, Scotland now. I’m 38 and working with computers for a living. I enjoy surfin the Net whilst listening to dub reggae….many of the sites that I will link to off this blog I found whilst doing this very thing.
Hope you like the results…I do anyway…
Thanks for bearing with me through the problems of the old bulletin board. As it was pretty much just myself who was posting decent stuff to that I have decided to change the whole format of the page, and as you can see, it is now a blog.
There was a lot of material on the BB so I am now going to start the process of transferring all those links across to this page.
Hope you enjoy yourselves here!
