  1. Man Gets His Photo on PostSecret… With Someone Elses’ Secret

    Allow us to explain:
    • In 2005, Frank Warren began PostSecret, an art project of sorts where he encourages people to anonymously send him postcards with their own true secrets on them, so he can show them to the world. It has been going strong ever since, with a weekly updated blog and five published books.
    • In 2006, Luke Pebler put some pictures up on his Flickr, including this one.
    • Last week, a new secret went up with the weekly batch on Postsecret.com, seen above (don't bother looking for it on the website after October 16th, PostSecret has no archive).
    Result?

  2. You’ve Heard of a Living Pokédex? This is a LEGO Pokédex

    It's safe to say that if LEGO and Pokémon ever actually joined forces, we might lose an entire generation. Fortunately Filip Johannes Felberg is just a fan. A fan who has made a mission out of making Pokéout of Legos. To be honest, we're quite enchanted with his creations, not to mention the clear improvements in his models that you can see over time. Some of our favorites, below:

  3. Man Who Quit With Cake Sends Invoice With Cake

    In March of 2009, W. Neil Barret posted a picture to his Flickr of the cake he had made... as a resignation letter. It made some waves on the internet, and everything went better than expected. At least, until Steven Slater took his fabled slide down the evacuation chute of JetBlue Flight 1052, and Jenny DryErase lit up the internet with her dubious markers. Because it was at that point that People.com decided to run a photo gallery of "Memorable Quitters," and they wanted to include Barret. And his photo. For free. And therein lay the rub.

  4. People Reading Comics In Public

    We hope you read some comics yesterday? Perhaps somewhere where you could be seen by strangers? Perhaps you also put some pictures in the International Read Comics In Public Day Flickr feed? If not, there's always next year. Or today. Or tomorrow. We read ours on the train on Friday mornings. The creme of the crop, below.

  5. Nintendo Thinking of Making Us Pay for Online Games

    In an interview with Edge Magazine yesterday, Shigeru Miyamoto made something of an alarming pronouncement.

    Probably the other thing that we are desperate to realise is the core [online] business structure... Do we need to demand customers pay monthly fees to enjoy online activities? Or give an online subscription that is free of charge, but then offer something extra for people that pay, so that they get some extra value? With these core business strategies I think we are less active than we should be.
    Does this mean that the free online gaming of the Wii and DS will go the way of the dodo?

  6. Volcanoes Produce Lightning

    Flickr user skarpi has a series of photographs documenting the phenomenon of volcano triggered lightning at the site of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. From Wikipedia:
    When the higher levels of the atmosphere are cooler, and the surface is warmed to extreme temperatures due to a wildfire, volcano, etc, convection will occur, and the convection produces lightning... There are three types of volcanic lightning:
    • Extremely large volcanic eruptions, which eject gases and material high into the atmosphere, can trigger lightning. This phenomenon was documented by Pliny The Elder during the AD79 eruption of Vesuvius, in which he perished.
    • An intermediate type which comes from a volcano's vents, sometimes 1.8 mi-
    Oh, there's only so long we can keep the scientific veneer. Check out these pictures, they are amazing!
