Butts and Cracks

Sorry

Written by Dominik Schwind on

Hello internet friends,

did you ever wonder how fireflies in Thailand synchronize their blinking? Yeah, me neither. But now I know and it is fascinating. And the webpage that explains it is absolutely wonderful.


Computer Talk

Just now as I am writing this the latest Apple keynote thing ended. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Let’s talk about real computers instead and what happened with those back in the days: What Really Happened with Vista
Medium Dot Com says it takes 27 minutes to read it, sooooo… about how long Vista lasted from start-up to the first background process crashing.

Butt Talk

So apparently this is a topic? Why did my boyfriend like Emily Ratajkowski’s butt on Instagram?

Bird Talk

A warning, just in case: Two Escaped Raptors Are Still At Large in North Carolina
Not dinosaurs, though. Talking about big birds – did you ever wonder about Why Flamingos Are More Stable on One Leg Than Two?

Brick Talk

How Lego clicked: the super brand that reinvented itself – nothing really new in that article, but it’s still nicely put together.
Meanwhile in assorted Lego talk, a nice love letter to the Lego Movie’s cracked space man helmet: Cracked Helmets and Being Understood


Toodles! (And don’t forget, you don’t really need all the new iMacs and iPads and things.)
