It’s been so tiring these past few days… I can hardly keep my eyes open.
(img) トミカタワー – Tomy Car Tower – I’ve always dreamt of a parking system similar to this, where all you do is drive into this spot and some sort of elevator will take you to a free empty spot. But then I realized the delays that will make system fail, though with a circular system, you can really have many many elevators.
(img) 宇宙船（ホンダ製） – Universe Car (Honda) – License plate shows ACURABOT. Totally a rice car.
(img) ねえねえそこのお姉ｓゴフッ – Super Kick
(vid) ヴォイスパワー – Voice Power – I want to learn how to hit that pitch to break glass. Is it the same pitch for all glass, or is there some way for the screamer to feel the resonating vibrations to know which pitch to scream at?
(vid) 目覚まし時計 – Malfunctioning Alarm Clock – I wouldn’t want this to be my alarm clock.
(img) BABY – cracking baby. pretty nice art

Virtual property market booming (from /.) – A gamer who spent £13,700 on an island that only exists in a computer game has recouped his investment, according to the game developers. Treasure Island (6000 Acres/25 km²) – for US$26,500, Zachurm “Deathifier” Emegen purchased a virtual island on Project Entropia. A large island off a newly discovered continent surrounded by deep creature infested waters. The island boasts beautiful beaches ripe for developing beachfront property, an old volcano with rumors of fierce creatures within, the outback is overrun with mutants, and an area with a high concentration of robotic miners guarded by heavily armed assault robots indicates interesting mining opportunities. Quite amazing!
Crab vs. Pipe (from kobashi) – This is a video taken in 6000 feet of water. An undersea robot is sawing a 3mm wide slit (1/10th of an inch … remember that width) in a pipeline. The pressure inside the pipeline is 0 psig, while the pressure outside is 2700 psi, or 1.3 tons per square inch. Then a crab comes along….
Samsung announces five slim phones (from artemyst). Honest to god, I didn’t even notice the females holding the phone. Probably because the phones themselves are so sexy! But is it just me, or is the left 2 phones very similar to the Motorola RAZR?
Final Fantasy XI Online (from eddo) – A remake of the Full Metal Alchemist Opening intro, but with Final Fantasy XI characters! Pretty cool if you’re a fan of both!
Skater falls through roof (from deadlock) – saw this video before, but the Mario music compliments it very well!
Funny ricer (from deadlock) – probably a joke video, but it’s still hilarious to see how this ricer explains how great his Civic is. Wait for it… Wait for it… BUSTS OUT A GRAPH! HAHA!
3D Rendering of a Ford Engine (from deadlock) – a very nice video of all the different components of a Ford engine rendered in 3D. Pretty interesting. Would’ve been nicer if they explained what was happening too.
Three die playing catch with grenade – A hand grenade being used instead of a ball in a game of catch exploded early on Saturday killing three youths in this Bosnian town, police and news agencies said. … Police said an inquiry was under way and declined further comment. It was not clear why the grenade exploded. I’m pretty sure the reason while the grenade exploded was because the pin came off (either on purpose or accidentally). Ungsunghero thinks they might’ve been playing Hot Potatoes, that man version. Anyway, I’m more curious on why the police are investigating why the grenade exploded and not why they were playing a with a grenade.
Ship Blasted Pirates With Sonic Weapon – modern day pirates get fought back with modern day technology!
Firms make profit by paying too much tax – Because the Dutch Treasury pays 5 percent interest on any excess amount paid that it returns later — more than commercial banks would offer — some firms gladly accept an estimate that is too high, Dutch Finance Minister Gerrit Zalm complained on his weblog Monday. Maybe the USA should do this!
