Too Cool Not to Share

Here’s the latest beautiful video pinging around the internet, a time-lapse video taken from the International Space Station as it orbits the earth. Beautiful imagery of stars, aurora, lightning, city lights, clouds . . . our pale blue dot in all its glory.

Best viewed in full screen.

Need some relaxation?

Well here you are.  Pretty landscapes, pretty music.

Seriously Funny of the Day

Okay, did I say the previous post was funny.  That was totally my bad.  THIS is the funny of the day.

We’ve all seen the photos that amusement parks take of riders as they plummet down a roller coaster, or what have you.  Well, the folks who run a haunted house in Canada do the same thing when people work their way through to the maximum scariest segment.  And the results are High-larious:

Even better are the comments for each pic, such as this one for the one I posted above:

“HELLO?! NO I’m IN A HAUNTED HOUSE!!! A HAUNTED HOUSE!! CAN I CALL YOU BACK???”

You can view the entire stream in all its funny here.
