Last year on July 24, 2010, many people around the world participated in a joint collaborative effort between YouTube, Producer Ridley Scott, and Director Kevin Macdonald to show how one day passes before the eyes of approximately 6 billion people in the world. It’s an ambitious project, but one that has finally finished production and will be available soon for viewing starting summer 2011! I’m excited to watch this!


Oh those Chinese…what can’t they counterfeit? If your answer was ‘beef’ then I’m sorry to say that you might be wrong. According to several Chinese outlets, more than a small handful of Chinese restaurants (and some individuals) in China are using a special beef extract paste to turn chicken and pork into beef. The process takes about 90 minutes. MAGIC!!

This Japanese video shows a Chinese street sweeper equipped with bamboo brooms in a circular-moving contraption. Low-tech and still gets the job done! [via]


No way! I’m filing this under “posts most people won’t understand”. I don’t even care because this is too good.

This is so wonderful it’s almost making me cry!
