Ants' Metropolis

You have to see it to believe it - what scientist uncovered when they filled ant's tunnels with cement... The structure that simply boggles the mind. (this is an episode from "Ants! Nature's Secret Power" - info)

"Obama to White House" Countdown

In addition to this fun countdown, folks at SoSauce created "A Victory Lap", which is a fun way to learn more about Obama and the significance the places he’s lived have had on his life - click here.


Car Vending Machine?

Looks like it...

UPDATE: "It's not a parking garage. Vending machine isn't too far off. The picture is of Palette Town in Odaiba, Tokyo and the cars are part of the Mega Web Toyota showroom. You pick a car you want to see by pushing a button and a giant conveyor belt system rotates the vehicles around until your selection is in view. It's pretty awesome." (thanks, P.)

Probably a parking garage, not a vending machine.

It's not a parking garage. Vending machine isn't too far off. The picture is of Palette Town in Odaiba, Tokyo and the cars are part of the Mega Web Toyota showroom. You pick a car you want to see by pushing a button and a giant conveyor belt system rotates the vehicles around until your selection is in view. It's pretty awesome.

I like the video on the Pimped Office Cubicles link where the office workers show how they converted their colleague's cube into a tiny house while he was on vacation.
