Photographic Time Machine

Around 1905 some russian guys figured out a way to make colored photographs by taking 3 photos with red, green and blue filters, then composited the negatives to create a color print. These images are taken in 1905-1915.

Wireframe modeling... for real!

Art imitating art? Reality imitating the virtual? I don't know, but it's pretty cool.

Now That's Racing

Rumor has it that Champ Car is looking at filling its late season with another euro race. This time at Dijon.

Here is a very cool video of the great Gil Villeneuve battling it out with Arnoux at Dijon in 1979. I think there were more passes in this one clip than most modern F1 races. Pity.

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Family Pets:

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that a esthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, or try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain about Our Pets:
  1. They live here. You don't.
  2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why it's called "FURniture.")
  3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
  4. To you, it's an animal . To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.
Remember: In many way s, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
  1. Eat less.
  2. Don't ask for money all the time.
  3. Are easier to train.
  4. Normally come when called.
  5. Never ask to drive the car.
  6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends.
  7. Don't smoke or drink.
  8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions.
  9. Don't want to wear your clothes.
  10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college.
And finally,

11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.(okay, I know this last one won't fly here, but it was on the list!)
