Alternate Ending: Nixon's speech if Apollo 11 team... →
Columnist and presidential speechwriter Bill Safire was one of only three non-disloyal Jews President Nixon could name. Here is the speech he drafted for Nixon to read in case the Apollo 11 Astronauts became stranded on the moon! It is a wonderful piece of alternate universe American history, in which President Nixon had to explain to a nation that Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were going to...

If by “that” dust storm you mean the one that happened near Broken Hill in 2007 then yes. The video is still awesome, it’s just not the storm that happened this week. Source video here. (via indefensible)

Amazing time lapse video. It’s this sort of stuff that makes me wish I had forked out the extra $400 for a DSLR with HD video.
My ex girlfriend's mother just died...
christopherattle: …which would be sadder if I knew at all how to deal with it. Her mother wasn’t long for this world when we met a year ago; to say this is a surprise or a shock would be a lie. And since she was almost entirely robotically cheerful for the whole time we dated, not letting a single shadow cross her smiling face, it’s hard to even tell how she’s dealing with it. She was a black box...

christopherattle: anti-matt: I was amazed at how many different uses I had for the word, most of which were completely unknown to my Canadian counterparts. Thus I decided to produce this list of stuff and it’s various applications. Give a stuff – to care; “She doesn’t give a stuff about me.” Stuffy - 1) lacking fresh air; “My grandma’s place is always so stuffy, she need to learn how to...
Upon moving to Canada I expected to notice a few differences in the use of words and phrases. Despite being a former British colony, time and the USA have had a significant impact on language in Canada while time and beer have impacted on it in Australia. Ignoring the obvious stereotypical ‘Aussie slang’ (crikey, strewth, bonza etc), I prepared myself for subtleties like calling Capsicum peppers...
9/11 is always a tough day for me. My “where were you story” forces me to admit I was watching Rove Live. Never Forget.

Obama's Prepared School Remarks →
Mate, it’s a joke. Right now I have two account managers under me doing my work, a PA organizing my travel and accommodation, Em packing all my stuff this week, Ben selling my stuff, and a strategy and creative team doing all the work. In addition to that I’ve got my bosses paying my rent and bills and my client arranging my stay in Taipei. And I’m still getting paid. Not sure...
Holy smokes, you need booze!
The toxicity of methanol is due to the accumulation of its metabolites — formaldehyde and formic acid. Because the metabolic pathways for ethanol and methanol share a common enzyme, alcohol dehydrogenase, ethanol can be used to treat methanol poisoning by blocking the enzyme until the body can excrete enough methanol through the kidneys, lungs and skin. In a documented case, a ship worker poisoned...
christopherattle: obamaisliterallyhitler: AIDS IS LITERALLY HITLER! Justin warns it’s (very) NSFW. If Obama is literally Hitler then that woman is literally capitalism. Now I’m going to have to digitally alter ALL my porn so Hitler is in it. That would be a LOT of Hitler porn…. but what a legacy you would leave.
