ASL Eminem

I meant to post this a while back, but this video of an ASL interpretation of Eminem's Lose Yourself is excellent:

Debugging wifi is always an exercise in patience for opaque systems, but this option on OSX might be useful - the ability to more aggressively switch between access points on a single network to find a stronger signal.

Axonometric Tube

Transport for London has released 124 axonometric diagrams of underground stations. Looking at stations you've walked through thousands of times is still a little confusing.

A future note to self - if you're trying to build and install PECL modules but your /tmp is mounted as noexec, you can manually set PECL's temp dir using pear. Yes, this makes little sense.

In a similar vein to my drunk kitchen, the katering show is worth watching. Only 6 short episodes to catch up on.

Lucky peach's state of ramen edition is pretty great. It's been sitting in my tabs for 6 months now, so putting it here makes more sense.

I've been meaning to try my hand at making marinated soft-boiled eggs for a while too.

After getting a one kilo cube of tungsten, I need to go deeper. Plutonium is dangerous and Platinum is crazy expensive, but what about Osmium?

Pixel tower, redux

If you were a fun of MrWong's Soup'Partments in the 2000's, then you'll feel some nostalgia for Chicken Street.

As a color blind human, this New Republic article on color perception is pretty interesting. The book is probably worth a read.
