Swaying Skyscrapers

"Skyscrapers were swaying like the masts of yachts", said witnesses in Tokyo during the powerful 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan this morning. Due to the tough building standards, and build-in mass dampers these skyscrapers were all standing at the end of the day - a fact that saved thousands of lives. Tokyo is counted third among "Cities with Most Skyscrapers" - after Hong Kong and New York.

Rat + Cat + Dog = New Musicians of Bremen?

Santa Barbara resident Gregory Pike keeps this combo in peace and harmony: Booger, Kitty, and Mousey (actually, a rat). The dog and the cat were raised together, and the cute white rat actually feels more secure on top of its friends - here is a story behind this photo:

Radical "Phosphor" E-Ink Watches: Great Fashion Statement

In the age of Kindle, Kobo and other e-ink readers it seems that e-ink displays pop up everywhere. Short of acquiring an entirely electronic-ink newspaper, sporting e-ink personal watch and calendar is the next best thing, and a great conversation piece. We had a chance to try the Phosphor brand as part of their very cool watch line-up, and we highly recommend it to those tired of all other kinds of displays. "Ink me up, Scotty!" - this is a futuristic watch that is a joy to wear.

The 'nuclear hair' photo is of 60's fashion model Penelope Tree, hence the nest. My hair looks like that if I don't shower for a couple of days.
Magnificent site - you've ruined all my notions of 'spare time!' Thanks.

Some really cool pics in here, love the cat and rate sitting on the dogs back!

Does anyone have a reference as to where the "fire breathing rabbit" is from. Specifically, was it a story, magazine, or book cover? And what is the name? Any story that has that as a cover is something I want to read.
