Your daily dose of weirdness is Sailor Moon the Musical!


Every Sailor Scout, including the Starlights from the undubbed season. Of course I don't understand a word, but for stuff like this you really don't need to understand. You can assume that they're talking about love and friendship and all that other stuff from the soundtrack.

Making a Rubik's Cube out of LEGO bricks.


It's a lot more complicated than you'd think...

Clones of the NES Mario games that I'd never heard of.


And of course as long as I'm in the neighborhood of the topic I have to post the link to Dangerous Dave in Copyright Infringement again...

A guy builds a robot to paint images on his wall via "pixel dots".


The final product is like how newsprint works.



The phrase "this guy has too much time on his hands" definitely applies.


He also made a robot to carve images into a pumpkin. And explains the Mercator Projection while he does it. Who knew that Jack-o-Lanterns and maps had something in common?

I've known of Cliff Stoll's glass Klein bottles for a long time. Someday I hope to own one.



He appeared on Numberphile awhile back, but today Adam Savage also shilled him.



And the Amazing Thing That I Learned Today is that he once figured out that the KGB had hacked a national laboratory. NOVA made a special about him. It's weird to see him so young, I'm so used to his Cool Old Guy persona.



Watch his Numberphile videos about the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg or The Millionaire Machine.

apparently the author of snow crash commented on the metaverse:

The creator of the term 'metaverse' wants people to know he has 'nothing to do' with Facebook's Meta plans

A fan attempt to create a correlation between the Hyrule map in Ocarina of Time and Breath of the Wild.


Completely ludicrous. The sheer amount of crowbaring that you have to do to make this work is up there with the nonsense people do to the Kelvinverse and Discovery to make it fit with the original canon.

"Sand" made it into the Toy Hall of Fame.


I don't agree with this one. Put traditional sand shovels and buckets on the list by all means, but not "sand." You might as well put "paper" or "blackboards" on the list.

A Cracked listicle brings up the "how could Khan know who Chekov is when Chekov wasn't on the show yet?" thing again.


Ugh. Chekov wasn't a bridge officer in the first season, but there's nothing to contradict the notion that he was an ensign below-decks during "Space Seed."

You might remember the bit of furry art where someone's fursona helps assassinate the Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Awhile back I talked about the Princess Bride: Home Movie project, saying that I wasn't getting Quibi just to watch it.



Well, it's on YouTube now.

A fan remade the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny for the 15th anniversary.



I like it better than the updated Lemon Demon version from 2017 that I posted last year.



Of course nothing will beat the original, but the 2021 version at least shows enthusiasm and features a few pop culture icons that have emerged since the original.

A 2020 Garry's Mod of Ultimate Showdown.


I find it intriguing that both of the updated casts include Yami Yugi. It could be argued that he should've been in the original and not in the update, as Yu-gi-oh! is hardly the cultural phenomenon that it used to be.



(I also found it disturbing that this guy used Grommit in place of Mr. Rogers. Beyond the sweater the two are very different. I'm not a fan of the Aardman aesthetic.)

Another fictional starship comparison video


Not quite as impressive as the original. I don't know why he made the 1701's Bussard Collectors yellow, or why the Borg cube looks like a kitbash of plastic model parts.

For the tenth anniversary of Numberphile they made a video about the number 10.
